Petrolatum detox chapter 1: Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour SPF 15

The story thus far: After years of Vaseline and Lucas Papaw, my lips and I have decided to break up with Petrolatum. The reasons for this detox of sorts can be found in my previous post.
In the last couple of weeks I have jumped right into petrolatum free lip balms (with lots of help from my lovely twitter friends, especially Anissa from Beautifully Glossy, and Miss Sensuous)- and I’ve decided to review all of them! (eventually)
Kirsten from Lanolips very kindly included a surprise tube of Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour in ‘Apples’ when she sent over her ‘secret strength mix‘ for me to try. How sweet is that?


Colour: Apples is a creamy true red colour which applies fairly pigmented but after about 30mins of wear becomes a beautiful sheer rosy tint on the lips. Because my lips are fairly pigmented I find that I need to reapply after each hour if I want the colour to show up.
Texture: Apples is a tinted lip treatment so it’s feels like a balm on the lips with none of the stickiness of a gloss. It’s fairly moisturising on my parched kissers (hurrah!) so I found it’s great on a day when my lips are too dry to wear a lipstick but I still want a bit of colour.

  1. Great work, really enjoyed it you can be sure that I’ll be back!

  2. It’s hard to find knowledgeable people on this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! So many people are just psosting garbage to get traffic and clutter up the search engines. Thanks for keeping it real.

  3. The show has attained commercial success and critical acclaim. Initially airing as a midseason replacement for the legal drama Boston Legal, it gained high viewership,
