Where to purchase: The Lanolips range is available on Cult Beauty: HERE
Curely free?: Yes
What is it?: A Cream that can be used day and night, on the body, the face, the lips and on babies. Makes the skin look glowy upon application.
Description: A Rich All-in-one cream for all-over + everywhere.
Made for: Dry skin
I think: Those who like very very short skincare routines could use something like this as you can apply it pretty much anywhere.
How to use: Apply to dry skin allover. Wait a moment for your skin to drink it up.
Key ingredients: ”Double Lanolin” – The molecular structure of lanolin mimics human oils – so it’s a good occlusive and is moisturising. Vitamin E – An antioxidant (probably to prolong the formula). But Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C is also here as an antioxidant. Milk powder is in here – it’s meant to be conditioning.
Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau*, Lanolin*, Cetearyl Alcohol*, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride*, Glyceryl Stearate*, butyrospermul Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond ) Oil*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Glycerin*, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate*, Cetearyl Glucoside*, Cetearyl Olivate*, Sorbitan Olivate*, Carrageenan*, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance/Parfum (nat)*, Tocopherol (Vit E)*, nonfat dry milk*, Ascorbic Acid, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil*, Citric acid, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract*, Beta-Carotene*, limonene*, linalool*
*naturally derived/Dérivé naturel – (this is from the website, but I’d like to say the ingredients being ”Naturally derived” makes no difference to their efficacy by the way, and doesn’t make them more or less dangerous).
Not a fan of Limonene or Linalool or Fragrance – that’s just a personal preference. I’m also not a fan of the scent that Beta-carotene or carrot root extract provides, so overall the scent of this product is quite potent. I think some would really enjoy the ‘spa-like’ scent of this cream. It smells more of essential oils than a baby cream for instance.
And as you can see this is an oil/fatty formula, so you are going to get a lot of emollients and alleviating of dry skin!
How I used it: I applied this on the arms and the hands as I found this far too thick to use on the face. When I did try it on the face, it felt like my skin couldn’t really ”breathe” i.e. the product didn’t really disappear but sat snug on top of the skin. As an elbow + hand cream however this did help as during the winter season, this has been good for the dry patches of skin I’ve gotten.
Swatch / Texture: I hope you can see how ”fatty” and emollient this product is. It feels buttery and spreads across the skin like butter. It’s definitely not something I like to apply onto my face, it’s definitely more suited toward dry skins as this is too occlusive, it makes me skin feel like it can’t really breathe.
Would I purchase?: I would as a body cream (i.e. rough elbows) but even then I would prefer a formula that’s unscented and also disappears into the skin much faster. (I’ve actually been enjoying using the Cosrx Propolis Cream HERE).
Dupe?: I like the E45 Cream HERE
My Skin Type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combo skin. My skin is usually tight where the cheeks and eye area is and the outer parts of my face. My T zone is oily. My skin isn’t a fan of thick/heavy formulas so I opt for lightweight formulas to prevent it from clogging up. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either and I try to avoid fragrance when I can.
