Lanolips Ointment 101 and Rose Balm Intense Handcream
I resisted Lanolips but with its marketing (winning awards and plentiful positive reviews), I caved and bought these from Priceline. They came gift packaged with a patent pink cosmetic purse for $19.95
The ointment is just pure lanolin. What makes it different to cheaper lanolin is that it's highly refined so there is no smell or colour. It looks like Vaseline really. Just as thick and greasy but feels silkier in texture. It's all natural, very moisturising, and plumping. It can also be used on very dry skin so it's uses are versatile.
The handcream is heavy duty. Its thick and smells clean, like you've just had a rose bath. It does a terrific job keeping hands soft and supple. It sinks right in and a little goes a long way.
These are perfect for bedtime so you wake up to super soft skin. It feels luxe using them so they are worth the premium price. Handcreams come and go but I'll defo buy more ointment when it runs out.
