Lanolin is a luxuriously creamy purified ointment that has been cleansed of all colour, fragrance and impurities. Lanolin can hold over 200% of its own weight in water making it a super moisturiser that nourishes the skin. This gorgeous golden ointment reminds me very much of Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream, but without the sticky, tacky feeling on the skin and strange smell.
The combination of the change in weather, central heating and my car heater on full blast has left my skin dry, tight and irritated. This ointment has been a god send for clearing up the dry patches and soothing my skin and is perfect for this time of year, it also smells lovely too! The tube is handbag-size friendly and you only need to use a little as it goes a long way. I love that it is multi-purpose – you can use it anywhere – dry lips, face, body etc and with it being hypoallergenic it is even safe to use on newborn babies!
Lovely Lanolin Golden Ointment is priced at £17.99 and available now from www.victoriahealth.com and from Boots from February 2012. Are you a Lanolips fan?
