If the recent spate of cold weather is leaving your skin more flaky and dry than soft and smooth, we may just have the solution.
When the cold weather hits, it's always the lips that seem to be instantly affected, with this sensitive area becoming dry and chapped at the first sign of frost.
So if you're on the hunt for a quality lip balm to help your lips survive the 'Beast from the East' - and the rest of the winter - Amazon may hold the answer to the problem.
The Blistex Medplus Repairing Lip Balm is one of the website's top-selling lip products - and for good reason.
At just £3.59, the product is number one bestseller in the 'Lipstick primers' category. And if the customer reviews are anything to go by, it's easy to see why.
With over 93% positive customer reviews, fans have flocked to the site to praise the product for soothing dry, chapped lips, and even helping with cold sores.
One fan wrote, 'If you suffer from dry lips, this is the only product for you. I've been using it for years now and it beats the cheaper versions out there by a mile.'
While another agreed, 'Great for my lips in winter, only thing that heals the chapping!'
A third customer also said, 'Used this product before, its fantastic! Helps to reduce the risk of cold sores. Keeps lips in good condition, especially in the cold.'
A fourth happy shopper also said, 'I love this product. I sometimes suffer from cracked lips and this is the best product I have found. It almost works instantly and is a nice size to keep in my handbag.'
While the Blistex Lip balm costs £5.27 on Amazon, it's actually available for a little less in Boots. The retailer is selling it online for just £2.69. Shop it here now.
If you're after other soothing lip products, Blistex offer a range of other moisturising balms and creamsto help your skin tackle the cold.
