Looking After Lips...

When the weather's cold, the wind's blowing and the heating's on, lips can suffer and become dry and sore. Luckily all three of our Sheffield based skincare brands have some solutions for just this problem!

As lips don't have any oil glands of their own, they need looking after with rich balms to hydrate them. Commercially made ones often contain petroleum which is often blamed for actually drying out lips more as it acts as a sealant rather than a mosturiser. However, our skin care brands - Our Tiny Bees; Lovely Cosmetics; and Nathalie Bond Organics - all use natural alternatives to keep your lips looking (and feeling) good all day.

Our Tiny Bees 

Our Tiny Bees lip balm

A mix of honey, beeswax and almond oil, this balm contains only natural ingredients that are good for you lips. The oil and wax provide moisture and the honey helps retain that softness.

Another balm that also only uses 3 natural ingredients - shea butter for moisture; vanilla infused sweet almond oil for hydration; and blossom honey from The Sheffield Honey Company to seal in the moisture.

Nathalie Bond Organics

Containing only natural botanic ingredients, Nathalie Bond Organics lip balm comes in a range of 'flavours'. All contain cocoa butter; castor oil; jojoba and olive oils; and calendula. Here's why they've chosen them in their own words:

"Cocoa Butter - A wonderful moisturiser that is high in fatty acids that help improve skin moisture retention and elasticity, it hydrates the skin leaving it feeling soft and supple. Cocoa butter is also a great source of antioxidants, which help combat free radicals and help save your skin from the signs of ageing and environmental stressors.

Castor Oil - A thick and sticky cold pressed oil that helps to lock in moisture, protect the skin and prevent damage by the elements and environmental toxins.

Peppermint Essential Oil - A clean and fresh scented essential oil that is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves. It is used in aromatherapy to stimulate the mind, increase mental agility and to improve focus."
