'Winter is coming' as Ned Stark said in Game of Thrones! It really does feel like it now in the UK. sas its now autumn. In Autumn I like to change my skincare products to more heavy duty products because the colder weather does not do my skin any favours at all. When I was in my late teens I used no skincare products at all and my skin used to go red with the cold and my lips used to crack which was honestly horrible and sometimes quite painful too. My skincare regime has changed vastly over the years thankfully and I have found products that work well for me and the problems I had before are so much less now.
The Body Shop is one of my favourite shops at the moments because it has some amazing skincare products including the hemp hand protector cream which I just love and use most days. The hand cream was very thick and creamy and it honestly worked wonders on my hands, it keeps them soft and smelling gorgeous all day long. The hand cream is the main reason I wanted to try this Hemp lip balm.

Heavy duty hemp oil for dry skin

About the lip balm
It has a very simple design like any other lip balm that you might see on the market with a design that you would expect to see from the body shop. The design is very similar to the other hemp products in the body shop so it should be easy to find when shopping for it.
This balm is made from community trade hemp seed oil from France and as you can tell by the name of the product its heavy duty and its especially for dry lips especially during the colder weather or for whenever you need it really. Hemp oil is infused with fatty acids.
I have used this product for most days which is usually at the start of the day and also at the end and I can say I love this lip balm. I was worried that it was going to have a horrible scent but I was wrong it is very pleasant and very mild and, the good thing about this too is that even if you get it in your mouth by accident it won't leave a horrible taste in your mouth.
I love the sheen it leaves on my lips after applying, its a great base for a lipstick or lipgloss. I am not sure if it makes a lipstick last longer but it helps apply it a lot more smoother then it would on bare lips. I have had no issues with dry lips and any sensitivity with this which is brilliant because my skin can be a bit sensitive at times.
My partner likes to use this too and he agrees it has a nice pleasant scent which isn't over the top and leaves his lips feeling soft ( he gets dry lips easily and this balm has helped so much).
I would have to give this lip balm 10/10 because its such a good product and I am sure my partner would agree with me about that too. This balm is non sticky and glides onto lips like a dream and soaks into the lips without feeling greasy but leaving a nice sheen. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a heavy-duty lip balm for the autumn/winter months.
What is you're favourite lip balm for the autumn/winter months?
