Orange You Glad You Met Me?

With the cold snap we're having at the minute, you may find that the cold weather takes its toll on your skin. One area I find that gets affected by the winter wind in particular are my lips, so I always try to carry around a good, nourishing lip balm at all times to keep chapped lips at bay.

So it was with perfect timing that I came across You Organic Skincare - an indie, natural cosmetics company based in Dublin and founded by Ursula Elmes a practicing Acupuncturist and holistic Skin Therapist who decided to start up her own natural skincare company after suffering a dermatological reaction whilst using a well known brands product.

I've been using the signature scented Orange & Mandarin Lip Balm and it has now replaced my normal "go to" Body Shop lip balms.

The You Organic Orange & Mandarin Lip Balm comes in a sturdy little metal tin with a slide off lid.

The Orange & Mandarin scent is deliciously fruity and zesty without being overpowering. It's a lovely pick-me-up first thing in the morning when applying to your lips to leave them soft and smooth.

The tin contains 7mls of product and a little goes a long way as it's concentrated. One thing I really like about this lip balm is the fact that it's not sticky or greasy, so it doesn't leave an oily residue.
