I've had a cold for the last few days, everyone else in the house was ill over Christmas and New Year and I thought I'd escaped it but no, the first day back at school there it was, unhelpfully showing its virus face when I have to get up and face the world and can't stay in bed to fend it off. But hey ho, at least it's not Covid which I have had albeit mildly, but even then it wasn't much fun and that was WITH the double jabs!
So what I'm getting round to saying is that for the last few days my lips were really sore and dry and the only thing that has really helped is this Too Faced Hangover Pillow Lip Balm Treatment.
This actually came in a set someone got me as a present a while back, I didn't buy it but when it runs out I am going to get some more because it really is great stuff. I've been putting it on before I go to sleep and by morning my lips feel great!
What I like about it is that it does seem to stick to your lips and doesn't slide off and you can feel it creating a barrier between the elements and your skin. Overnight it does sink in completely, during the day it requires a couple of top up applications to really see results. I think the key to it is re-application particularly if you've got a cold or in Winter like now (it's snowing here at the moment) when the mixture of weather and illness and central heating dries plays havoc with your skin.
This shade is Original but it also comes in a few colours (not sure how colourful they are on your lips though as I haven't tried them) they are Watermelon Kiss, Banana Kiss, Cocoa Kiss and Mango Kiss (lots of kisses!), they are all infused with fruit oils and coconut water. The Original is quite coconutty which I love but it could put some people off if coconut isn't your thing. These retail at £18. Quite a lot of the time the Hangover products are bundled together on the Too Faced Loves The UK website so before you go for the single product I think it's worth having a look to see what else you can get in a set. I really like all the Hangover products so that's always a win for me.
Let me know if you've tried this or have any Too Faced Hangover faves!
