Self Care Sunday – Lotil Original Cream and Lip Balm Review

AD – Products mentioned in this post were gifted for my honest review.

I love Sunday’s an opportunity to unwind and relax before starting another busy week. I try to ensure I get a bit of time to focus on me (in between Peppa Pig stories!) and escape for a brief moment, a time for some pampering! I was sent the Lotil Original Cream and Lip Balm to try – perfect timing with the colder weather arriving and my skin starting to feel the effects.

Lotil Original Cream and Lip Balm

The Lotil Original Cream has a lovely rich thick texture, it feels smooth and luxurious to touch. It has a unique scent which I do not mind – I would describe it as slightly medicinal, I find it is not overpowering and does not linger. This cream promises to:

  • Soften the skin anywhere on the body
  • Hydrate the skin quickly
  • Soothe the skin
  • Absorb easily into the skin
Lovely thick texture

I have been using the Lotil Original Cream for two weeks and my skin is thanking me for it! The cream massages and absorbs easily into the skin without feeling sticky or greasy leaving my skin feeling wonderfully soft and smooth. I really put it to the test focusing on my problem areas!

Before I had my children I had never heard of ‘Mum Legs’ those dry patches we get on our knees and ankles from hours of playing cars, being a climbing frame and trying to find that lost toy! I have struggled to remedy these patches and through consistent use they have improved significantly, no longer do they feel and look uncomfortable which feels like a real win for me! I am frequently using it on my hands to keep them healthy and prevent the cracking knuckles I often get brought on by the cold weather.

My eldest child suffers from mild eczema and I have been using a light layer of Lotil on his arms to relieve it. Through continual use I have seen an improvement and he has been less irritated by his eczema, a great result!

I use this cream morning and evening to feel the real benefits, a little goes a long way and this pot will see me through Winter and beyond!

Lotil Original Lipbalm

The Lotil Lip Balm has a lovely light sweet scent which makes me want to eat it! It contains SPF 30 (always a big plus for me!) and promises to:

  • Protect the lips against cracking
  • Soothe dry, sore and chapped lips

Lip balm is a staple in my handbag, I always carry one with me and apply at least ten times a day! I have been using the Lotil Lip Balm daily to protect my lips from the elements. It glides on beautifully and feels light and comfortable on my lips once applied, it sits comfortably under my lipstick leaving me ready for the day ahead. I love it’s lipstick bullet design making it easy to reach and apply to the tight corners of my lips. It absorbs easily leaving my lips feeling soft and soothed. This lovely lip balm has taken up residence in my handbag!

Perfect addition to my bag this Autumn

I am really pleased with the results from both the Lotil Original Cream and Lip Balm, I will continue to use them as part of my skincare routine and to keep the dry ‘Mum legs’ at bay!

Lotil Original Cream (£7.00) and Lip Balm are available from Boots and Amazon.
