Titillated by Dr Lipp's Nipple Balm

(N.B sorry for the title - I simply couldn't resist it!)

As the biggest multi-taskers around, us ladies expect the same from our beauty products, right? When I fork out a lot of cash for a cream or a balm, I want it to do its job and more. But so often I'm left disappointed, and the so-called saviour I've just bought goes straight into my dressing table drawer (also known as my beauty graveyard)

Well, thanks to Dr Lipp's Nipple Balm, I've now found a genius product which comes absolutely everywhere with me. And I mean everywhere - I even have two set aside, one for my baby changing table, the other for my baby changing bag!

My changing table staple!
So, what is it? Originally recommended by midwives for painful nipples associated with breastfeeding, make-up artists quickly discovered its many many many other uses - and it quickly became an industry secret. Using medical-grade lanolin, it works to moisturise skin by up to 40 per cent in just one hour, making this little tube the best lip balm I've ever used.

Not just for mums, it also works wonders as an eye cream, sore skin soother, eyebrow setter, highlighter, lip treatment, split end healer and cuticle balm. You can even use it to treat eczema! How amazing is that? I guarantee that the Nipple Balm is one multi-purpose cream that you need in your handbag.

You can use it as an eye cream to treat fine lines, a highlighter or just as a lip gloss! (P.S Sorry for the tired, puffy eyes - being 34 weeks pregnant is not my most glamorous look!)
Better still, it also happens to be 100% organic, hypoallergenic and tasteless. And with reported fans including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Moss, you know you're onto a good thing with this little miracle worker...

It comes out of the bottle as a fairly thick, sticky balm with a strange yellowish tinge. I was slightly concerned at first as it did feel really sticky (perhaps not ideal when you have long hair and a windy day), but this fear quickly disappeared when I stroked my lips a few hours later - they were super soft. And I mean SUPER SUPER SOFT!

Nipple Balm makes the perfect, natural lipgloss
Since that first day, I've become an addict and have yet to find something it isn't amazing at.

I quickly started using it every night on my elbows and lips, and I still never fail to be amazed at how magical the transformation seems to be. It also makes a great lipgloss if you mix it with your favourite lippy, and I've been using it daily as a highlighter just below my brow arches.

Ladies, this is a wonder balm - for just £11.50 from Space NK, you've got yourself a cult product which all handbags need.
