I decided to do my can’t live without new discoveries from July. I was surprised that I actually had a few to list.
1. Maybelline – Baby Lips Moisturising Lip Balm
I literally bought this a week ago when we went grocery shopping of all things. My lips due to the awesome winter we are having here in New Zealand are severely chapped and dry – I am quite literally ripping the skin off (an old habit that I have not yet kicked unfortunately). So I thought – why not? Let’s give this a go and see if it helps.
What they say it does?
Maybelline advertises this little gem as:
No more basic lip balm
- The secret: Exclusive lip renew formula
- Protects and moisturizes for a full 8 hours
- After 1 week*, lips are visibly renewed, virtually reborn
- 6 varieties
I am honestly shell shocked. Not only has this helped my lips in the course of a week – my lips literally look brand new again – and bonus? I’m not ripping the skin off! This feels so nice on my lips – the texture is great, it smells great and it actually moisturises your lips. This product actually does what it says it does. So – naturally I will be trying out their other colours in the range. For the first time in a long time – my lips don’t look like a dogs breakfast!! Best buy for July. If you haven’t already – you should try this out.
2. Mum’s Secret Sooth & Repair Moisturising Cream
I had never heard of this brand before I received it as part of my Goodiebox subscription. I decided to give it a try and see if it works. The main reason is because it’s completely natural – all the ingredients are natural and organic and listed on the product. This product also claims to help dry skin – and you can use it on your face and body and for babies! Again, due to the overall dryness of my wonderful self (the usual lips, skin, hair everything lol) I decided to see if this works. I must be in luck this month because I was pleasantly surprised.
What they say it does?
Mum’s Secret advertises this product as:
Effective in Four ways
SOOTHES dry, red or unhappy skin.
REPAIRS the appearance of flaky or damaged skin.
NOURISHES and smoothes flaky and scaly skin.
PROTECTS with a light barrier and gentle anti-bacterial support.
I have officially added this little baby to my beauty arsenal and carry this 50mL tube in my bag with me everywhere I go. My skin loves it – it’s so gentle and non irritating. My skin doesn’t look or feel as dry any more and I have only used this product for just over three weeks now. The best part is price tag. You can buy the 50mL for $15.00 NZD! I love the fact that this product is not only affordable – but it also works really well for me. I’m going to be investing in this moisturiser from now on.

Hope you beautiful people will try these products out and let me know if you love them as much as I do!
