Review: Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid and Lip Ointment with Colour

A few weeks ago,  I received a lovely package from Primped! I had no idea what it contained and to my surprise there was a pair of Lanolips products for me to try as part of their loyalty program. I received the Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid and the famous Lip Ointment with Colour and SPF.

Lanolips was created by Kirsten Carriol who spent her childhood in a sheep farm in Lucindale, South Australia. She was inspired by the natural substance called lanolin which is a natural moisturising wonder that can be obtained from freshly shorn sheep's wool. From there on, she created an all natural lanolin lip ointment. So here I am today using the amazing moisturising properties of lanolin from my new Lanolips products.

Lanolips products are 100% natural and contains the core ingredient Ultra Pure Medical Grade Lanolin. Lanolips formulas contain no chemicals and additives.

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid and Lip Ointment are both housed in a plastic tube with a twist top cap. The tube has no applicator, in fact, the tip is flat and not ideal to directly use the product straight from the tube. I had to resort to using a lip brush, which in the end wasn't much of a big deal as the lip brush helped to evenly distribute the product across my lips. The formula has a rich and creamy consistency and there is no stickiness at all! The texture is actually dense (more dense than Blistex Lip Conditioner) and I sometimes found it a little difficult to squeeze out some product, however, once applied to the lips it melts and leaves a protective layer on the lips. 

Lemonaid Lip Aid is a lip treatment which contains organic lemon oil to naturally exfoliate the lips. The formula contains 70% of the core lanolin ingredient. The scent is a delicious lemonaid scent, however, it does disappear within a few seconds after application. There are subtle shimmers and it leaves my lips looking soft, smooth and very glossy. This is a great lip treament product which I slather on to heal cracked, dry or damaged lips. The balm is so gentle that calms and soothes sore and damaged lips. 

Lanolips Lip Ointment is one of the most popular products from the Lanolips range. This lip ointment contains 60% ultra pure grade lanolin, colour, vitamin E and SPF15. There are five different shades available: Rhubarb, Rose, Apples, Sunshine and Dark Honey. I have the shade Rhubarb, which is a nice red shade that enhances the natural colour of my lips. I prefer to use Lanolips Lip Ointment over Lemonaid Lip Aid when I'm out of the house as it contains SPF15 to protect my lips from the sun and natural elements.  My lips stay well moisturised during the day whilst leaving my lips appear glossy but non-sticky. 

Lanolips are seriously worth its weight in gold! I enjoy the benefits of the ingredient lanolin and the fact that this balm is available for use in a variety of ways. When my lips are dry  requires natural exfoliation and healing I reach out for Lemonaid Lip Aid and when I'm on the go to work I use Lanolips Lip Ointment to keep my lips protected from the sun and looking glossed up in Rhubarb. 

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid retails for A$15.95 (12.5 g) and Lanolips Lip Ointment retails for A$13.95 (12.5 g). Lanolips is available at David Jones and Myer department stores, Priceline, Terry White Chemists and selected pharmacies.
Have you tried Lanolip products before? Which Lanolips product would you recommend?

  1. I have tried some testers of these and they've always impressed me, very moisturising and shiny. I really want to get the lemon one :)

  2. The scent of Lemonaid Lip Aid reminds me a lot like homemade lemonaid!

  4. Hi Rose,

    I've have my eye on Lemonaid for a while and was wondering how you'd describe the texture? Is it more of a balm or a gloss?

    Many thanks,

    1. Hi Lisa, Lanolips Lemonaid feels more like a balm as it is non-sticky.
