Dr. Lipp Nipple Balm
Made from 100% pure, medical grade Lanolin, the balm deeply nourishes the skin to relieve soreness and speed up skin repair.
Its hero ingredient is Lanolin, which is a highly emollient and effective natural moisturiser that has been used in pharmaceuticals for centuries. As it emulsifies on the skin, it helps to retain hydration; conditioning and protecting the skin. This wonderful ingredient makes the balm so soothing and effective.
Dr. Lipp’s Nipple Balm for Lips has also achieved cult status as a result of its multi-functionality. As the balm is tasteless and fragrance free, it’s ideal for applying to other areas of the body. Here are some of our favourite uses for the the Dr. Lipp Nipple Balm.
As a Lip Primer
Apply the Nipple Balm as a lip primer before your favourite lipstick. Long lasting lipstick formulas are often quite drying on the lips, particularly liquid lipsticks, so applying the Nipple Balm before will form a protective barrier for your lips.
As an Eye Gloss
Use the Nipple Balm to create a glossy eye look. Simply sleek the balm over bare eyelids and apply mascara for an editorial eye gloss look.
As Nail Care
Massage into cuticles to soften the skin and rejuvenate your nails.
As an Adhesive
Glitters and loose pigments can often be tricky to work with. To help with application and increase their longevity, apply the Nipple Balm as base.
- For a gorgeous eye look, apply the balm onto your lid and pack the Illamasqua Pure Pigment on top with a flat brush.
- To attempt the festive glitter lips trend, line your lips with Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencil in Bad Blood, apply Nipple Balm onto your lips as you would normally and then place the NYX Makeup Face & Body Glitter in Red on top.
With so many possible uses, it is hardly surprising that the Dr. Lipp Nipple Balm is such a cult favourite.
