Lanolips ‘Sunshine’ Lip Ointment

Lanolips is a brand I’ve seen raved about on many blogs, but one I’ve been weary about trying as it made me feel a little squeamish if I’m honest. The main ingredient within the Lanolips products is Lanolin which is a natural, fatty substance taken from freshly shorn sheep’s wool and is sometimes called wool grease. However ‘beauty is pain’ and all that, and curiosity got the better of me and I had to give it a try for myself. 
Lanolips have quite a varied range, which includes products for the lips, body and hands and nails. Lanolips products can be purchased online from Boots, Waitrose or Victoria Health. Their most popular product is their range of Lanolips Lip Ointments. All Lanolips products are completely cruelty free, and are said to contain the world’s finest lanolin. You only have to look at the huge amount of awards Lanolips have won for their products, to get an idea of how effective their formulas are.

The Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour’s are available in five different shades and all contain an SPF of 15; I have the shade Sunshine. Lanolips claim that the ointment contains over 60% ultra pure grade Lanolin which is used in wound healing and hospitals, as well as vitamin E and sweet almond oil. The Lip Ointment is housed within a clear, squeezy tube containing 12.5ml of product. I find that I have to roll the tube around in my palm a few times to warm the ointment up, before trying to use it as it’s quite difficult to squeeze from the tube when it’s cold.. during the Summer I’m sure the ointment will have a little more fluidity. 
In the tube, Sunshine looks like quite a bold orange shade.. however once applied to the lips, it’s a much more sheer yet juicy coral. Due to the sheerness, your natural lip colour still shows through which I really like. I also like that because the ointment is so sheer, you’d be able to apply it on the go without using a mirror, and not have to worry you look like a clown. The tube doesn’t have an applicator which I find odd.. it’s merely a small hole, so you have to apply with your fingertip which isn’t particularly hygienic and leaves my finger feeling sticky which isn’t ideal on-the-go.
The consistency of the Lanolips Lip Ointment is quite thick and slightly sticky so it very much is an ointment rather than a balm. I squeeze a pin-head size amount onto my fingertip and apply it to my lips. Luckily on the lips it doesn’t feel sticky which I’m really pleased about, as I hate sticky glosses or balms. It feels so instantly moisturising, and has such a glossy finish which looks really pretty. The ointment is completely fragrance-free, and lasts for around an hour. Once the ointment has worn off, my lips feel absolutely amazing – so soft, plump and nourished. I’d even go as far to say that the Lanolips Lip Ointment is on par with my holy grail NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm in terms of moisturisation so I now use this Lanolips Lip Ointment during the day for a pretty, glossy tint and then use the NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm at night as it’s a lot thicker.. and my lips are loving it – they’re in such an amazing condition.

    It does sound kinda grose in a way but I love that it has a tint to it so it’s still something I’d try!

    I’m using the lanolips balm now and I love it! I’m not squeamish at all though and it’s not like it smells of sheep or anything!

    When I read the first part I did a little mini sick :o but reading on this product sounds amazing and I really like the colour of this ointment. I find it a little odd that there’s no applicator though, not even a slanted smooth edge to glide onto the lips? xx

    I really like sheer balms, especially in the daytime. It’s a shame it doesn’t have an applicator tip though, I’m not a fan of having to use my fingers to apply lip balm when I’m out and about. I do love that colour though.

    I really want to try the banana one because I love the smell of bananas – but then I might just eat it right off my lips and that would defeat the purpose.
