Up until I was about 26 years old, my beauty regime used to consist of soap and water. That was it. No toner, no cleanser, no moisturiser. An old friend was mortified and slightly impressed that I only used soap and water and still had relatively “ok” looking skin (obviously we weren't looking at my skin through that weird blue light machine that pinpoints skin degeneration).
I moved on from soap and water and started using sorbolene and water. Don’t ask me where I got this from – but I stuck to it for only a short time before trying out Shiseido products. They were gorgeous. They came in a clear glass bottle with baby blue lids and smelt delicious. Sadly, the cost of it almost made me sick and the thought of having to regularly shell out this kind of money pushed me in the direction of the trusty supermarket.
Since then, I have been through countless beauty products. I’ve tried the super expensive, the super duper cheap and everything in between.
As the years tick by, I have slowly developed a loyalty to certain products (skin: Dermalogica, hair: Evo), but there is only one product that I have happily been in a long-term relationship with for 23 years now. That would be Blistex lip conditioner. Geez that stuff rocks. I discovered it in high school – probably through my friends, as we all used it, and it is one of my must-haves. It’s been with me through chapped lips, runs in wintry conditions in New Zealand and traipsing around Europe. It was even with me in New York on the open topped bus when it was so cold I couldn’t feel tears running down my face. But at least my lips were protected! So a little shout-out to the Blistex peeps. Love it. Love your product. Thank-you :)
Oh and incase you're wondering, this is not a sponsored post. It's just cause I love it.
What about you - do you have a product you swear by? Do you share my love of Blistex?
