Montagne Jeunesse Moisturising Lip Balms
As Summer moves into Autumn it’s a good idea to start protecting your lips from the damage that the chillier months can bring. Cold weather, harsh winds and even central heating can cause your lips to dry out and become sore and chapped, so to keep them hydrated and soft regular use of a good lip balm is essential.
I was recently lucky enough to be sent the full range of Montagne Jeunesse’s moisturising natural lip balms to try out, which I was very happy about as they are one of my favourite skin care brands, and as usual they really didn’t disappoint.
From left to right, the lip balms pictured above are:
- Pressed Cherry & Cocoa Chocolate Balm
- Wheatgerm & Shea Butter Weather Screen Balm
- Aloe Vera & Spearmint Healing Balm
- Shea Butter & Mango Sore Lips Balm
- Cranberry & Aloe Vera Cracked Lips Balm
Not one of Montagne Jeunesse’s lip balms contain petroleum jelly, so they aren’t greasy at all. Rather, they are made from 100% natural beeswax and olive oil and are lightly creamy but intensely moisturising. The beeswax forms a protective layer on the lips making them long-lasting, and the olive oil gives them a subtle shine. As such, they look great layered over (or even under) lipstick for a glossy yet protective finish. Each lip balm also has a delicate but uniquely sweet scent, which makes a nice change from the waxy undertone smell you often get from balms containing petroleum jelly.
Each balm contains different ingredients which are suitable for protecting against different lip damage problems, and will carry you from Autumn through until the end of Winter. At the moment I am using the Weather Screen balm to protect my lips against the late Summer sun and early Autumn winds. Towards the end of Autumn, as the weather gets colder, I will be using the Sore Lips balm, and into winter when the temperatures are particular harsh I will use the Cracked Lips balm for deep, protective moisturisation. Then, as Winter draws to an end and the Spring sun rises I will use the Healing Balm so combat any damage left over from the Winter (although I doubt I’ll need it after using the other balms!) The Chocolate balm is a nice little treat which I have plans for, so watch this space…
As with all Montagne Jeunesse products, their full range of Lip Balms are ‘caringly made in the UK’, and are vegetarian and animal-friendly as they are BUAV approved. They’re also almost 100% natural so are extremely kind on the skin. The Lip Balms cost just £1.99 each, which is very reasonable considering their high quality, and are available from Montagne Jeunesse’s website.
