my top three winter lip saviours!

Winter is well under way, and lip care is more important now than it ever has been! What with the harsh cold, and matte lips being well on trend, we need to take a lot of care of our poor lips!
These are my three favourite lip treatments for this season.

Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment
I purchased this product way back in February 2012 when I was visiting New York, my lips got dry and uncomfortably numb, which was so weird, I'd never had dry lips before, so I panicked and bought this! I got it for about $3, I can't find it on Boots/Superdrug, but I just bought this from a drugstore close to Times Square. It's a creamy formula, and I just apply it all over, it tingles a bit, and gets a bit sticky, so I only ever use it if I'm in the house. If I have a particularly stubborn bit, I'll apply a little bit more on there and within a day or two my lips are back to normal! I'm going to be gutted when I run out of this.

Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm Pot
This is an absolute must have product for me. It's thick and waxy and perfect to wear under matte lipsticks to keep hydrated. I wear this every night, I'll apply a thick layer on my lips and a little bit around and sleep wearing it. Like the blistex, it tingles a bit and feels quite cool, but that soon calms down and you're left with a waxy layer that you can instantly feel is making a difference to your lips. It's no more than £3 and lasts forever. I got this alongside the Blistex in New York and it's not even nearly finished. I'll definitely be repurchasing it though!

Vaseline Aloe Vera and Rosy Lips
I don't think I know anyone who doesn't have countless pots of this in their bags and drawers, even my boyfriend found and applied some the other day. These are my favourite of the Vaseline range. Personally, Vaseline aren't my favourite lip products, they feel too greasy for me, they don't feel great on my lips, but they're so convenient. I like the Aloe Vera one to apply on dry skin, it doesn't even have to be on my lips, but I felt I should include it anyway haha. I think the fact it's Aloe Vera makes me think it's doing a lot more good for me than it actually is.
The rosy lips one is my favourite. When I was in the hospital the other day, this was all I had in my bag but I felt I needed a balm. I applied a fair amount of this onto my lips and not only did it help my lips feel a bit healthier, it added that little splash of colour which really complimented my make up. So yeah, these aren't my favourite for a lip balm, but who doesn't rely on Vaseline?

What are your lip saviours? Anyone in the UK know where I can find the Blistex lip ointment?!
Leave me a lovely comment below, I love to hear from you guys! Hope the Christmas shopping is nearly over. After finally finishing up the Christmas decorations, I'm definitely in the Christmas spirit.

I'm also visiting London on the 20th, how exciting! Hopefully I'll pick up a few nice treats to show you all.
Take care, beauties.
