Top 5 lip care products

I have dry everything. Dry skin, dry hair, dry nails- you get the gist. My biggest problem is my dry lips. They never stay hydrated, no matter how many litres of water i drink! This results in me buying excessive amounts of products to try to solve my problem. When i search for lip care i'm looking for products which make my lips look nice and hydrates at the same time, which is surprisingly hard to come across.

NUXE Reve de Miel Baume Levres Ultra-Nourrissant Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm:
When i first purchased this in the summer i didn't see why it was raved about so much. I pushed it to the side and completely forgot about it. When i ran out of lip balm, around christmas, i turned to it and boy, have my views changed! I slathered it on my cracked lips before i went to bed and woke up with... hydrated lips! I was flabbergasted to say the least. Ever since i haven't been able to stop using it, it's quite a thick balm so i put it on before bed to let it sink in. The photo online is quite deceptive, it makes it look like it would have a creamy/balmy texture but it has more of a classic lip balm feel. It's £9.50, from Feelunique, which is a little more pricy than most lip care products but it is worth every penny! Buy it (here)

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid with Organic Lemon Oil:

Hands down the best lip product i have ever tried for hydrating. Sinks into you lips after about half an hour, the lemon oil exfoliates and the lanolin moisturises- the perfect lip balm!  Buy it from boots (here)

Rose Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15:
I got a mini sample of this in my Birchbox and i think it is fabulous! This product hydrates and leaves a lovely rosy finish on your lips, your lips stay hydrated but the colour fades after, approximately, half an hour. At £14.84 it's pricy, but pretty! Buy it from Sephora (here)

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub:
Lip savior. This product is a must-have for anyone who wears lipstick regularly. Leaves lips smooth to touch and looking airbrushed when paired with balm. (here)

Cherry Chapstick:
Last but most definitely not least is the legendary cherry Chapstick. This product hydrates your lips and leaves you with a lovely glow. It's a great product and for £1.05 who can complain? Buy it from boots (here)
