Curious thing. I used to work with a lady who wore a stick of Lypsyl round her neck. It was the original Lypsyl in a dark blue tube, hung around her neck in a pouch that she had made for it.
I guess she felt she couldn’t be without it…
Fast forward 30 years or so and I’m with her on the can’t do without it thing. However, I prefer to keep mine in my makeup bag or pocket.
It’s been around (established 1891) and (back in the day) if you were talking about chapped lips then you didn’t say lip balm you said Lypsyl (a bit like Hoover when you really should say vacuum).
Lypsyl still make their original product but have introduced a few more options in their lip care range.
Their sticks come in:
- Strawberry & Pomegranate;
- Coconut & Almond;
- Cherry & Almond;
- Cucumber & Aloe.
All of the above are SPF 15👍
But, they also make an SPF50 stick with Vanilla – SPF Sun Protect (and that’s the one I’ve got).
SPF Sun Protection
Skin, hair, face, body, lips all need protection from the sun.
Sun damage attacks collagen, and you need and want collagen to keep skin soft, plump and… kissable.
Lypsyl Sun Protect (£4.99) offers SPF50 sun protection against UVA (A for ageing) and UVB (B burning) rays. It also contains Aloe Vera to sooth which you will appreciate if the sun has dried you out a bit, and Vitamin E which is an antioxidant.
It is lovely and soft to apply thanks to the added shea and cocoa butters. Gently and naturally scented with vanilla.
If you want to protect your lips against dryness, ageing and burning (ouch) – get yourself some Lypsl and keep it handy.
Where to keep it? That’s down to you…!
