Hello there I AM BACK! 😀
So many things have happened in these last few months… but it’s good to be back home also because I am able to make my little cosmetic experiments again! 😀
This recipe of this “Winter Delight Lip Rescue Balm” is not mine: it was invented by the lady (LOLA!) who started the forum where I have learnt most of my “cosmetic knowledge” (here is my SOURCES page 😉 ); I asked for her permission to share it because it is truly the best recipe for a lip balm I have ever tried!
(In case you know Italian and want to read the original recipe: go HERE)
It is more than two years I have been making this so it is very well tested!
Well, most of the lip balms contain only an oily phase. No matter how many times you might have heard that “shea butter (or any other oil or butter) has great hydration properties” well as a matter of fact… it doesn’t! 😀
If you keep using only an oil on your skin, the result is that your skin will actually become more dry after some time; this is because the grease will form a kind of layer on top of your skin which will initially prevent water from “leaving” the skin (and this is why greasy greasy lip balms make your lips feel so soft and juicy in the beginning), but it won’t bring any hydration at all (obviously, since it doesn’t contain any water)… Eventually what really happens is that your skin will lose hydration more slowly than without the “only grease” lip balm but eventually it will lose it anyway! 😉
So what is so special about this recipe?
It has a water phase too!!! 😀 😀 😀
Yes you read right! It contains a water phase which will actually REALLY help hydrate your lips! 😉
And on top of that… the ingredients are EXTREMELY EASY TO FIND! 😀
So what are you waiting for??? 😉
