Lipbalms, Moisturisers, Skin Care

Top Winter Product: Lush Ultrabalm

Since the snow and ice set in here in Ireland I have been layering on the beauty products to try and protect my skin. I was chatting with some of you on Twitter the other day about the best products for the extreme dry bits. This got me thinking.

One of the products I have been relying heavily on is Ultrabalm by Lush. Ultrabalm is designed ‘For bits that chap and chafe’, I sure have plenty of those this season!

Basically this is a medium size tub of emolient skin saviour. It’s said to relieve, protect and moisturise – it delivers.  It does everything it is supposed to to. It’s also a vegan product.

I use it on my lips, elbows, knees, I also rubbed a little into the heels where my shoes were causing chaffing, that solved that problem. It also makes an excellent lip balm, cuticle balm

Don’t expect to smell any delicious scents as this has none, it smells like wax. That might be off-putting to some of you but for me that means no artificial fragrance. In fact one of the things I like about this balm is that it only contains three ingredients; Organic Jojoba Oil, Candellila Wax, Rose Wax. This  means it doesn’t cause any irritation. So if you have a chapped nose from a head cold, smearing some of this balm on will protect the skin but won’t cause any stinging.

This is a classic, reliable product. One that belongs in your handbag.

The balm isn’t expensive either, €10.95, which is a good price, particularly for a vegan product. I use so little at a time that my pot should last me all Winter.


What are you using on your dry bits?

    That’s just what I need this winter. My skin seems to be drying out! Especially lips. Which is normal for this time of the year.
    I was wandering if you can help me. I have a problem with my skin lately. I’ve realised I have a lot of blemishes all around my face, which has never happened before. I’ve read that it could be caused by some foundations. Is it true? Well, it could be as I’ve been trying many different ones lately. Now, how do I get rid of them? My face looks awfully disgusting and this forces me to use foundation all the time. But I don’t want to just cover it. I want to get rid of it. Do you know anything that could help? PLEASE!

    I want to get this but I have to save up for the Lush Xmas Sale thingy. :)

    I use the Lush lipbalms (miraculous), sometimes Lemony Flutter on places and I’ve been using a St. Ives moisturiser on my body but I have to change to something thicker, the heating is starting to really dry out my skin.

    I use this as a deep moistueriser at night and this is super, similar to 8hr day but I think I prefer this – go Lush except we’ve none near me :-(
