Fruity-scented lip balms and glosses were some of the first steps many of us took into the makeup world. As a young teen, my friends and I had quite a collection of scented balms and glosses. However, as I got older, even though the scents were fun, the balms were more novelty than effective in hydrating my lips.
No matter your age, everyone needs a lip balm. So when I heard that Lano’s world-famous 101 Ointment Multi-Balm now comes in fun, scented flavors like strawberry and green apple, I was excited to try a lip ointment that smells good and also keeps my lips healthy and hydrated all day long. And spoiler alert: The strawberry-flavored lip balm transported back to those early teenage years.
As a part of the Lanolips collection, Lano gave its original 101 Ointment a sweet upgrade and infused it with strawberry fruit extract and vitamin E for that daily dose of antioxidants while promising sweet hydration throughout the day. Unlike common lip balms and ointments, the cult-classic option keeps your skin and lips hydrated with lanolin, a natural and safer alternative to petroleum-based products. Lanolin, an Aussie favorite, mimics human oils to ensure a super-rich balm set to seal in moisture and hydrate even the most chapped of lips.
The Bottom Line
This lip balm is definitely worth the $14. Since its quality ingredients are so effective, you don’t need much product with each application. The balm relieved my winter-chapped skin and lips by delivering intense hydration with a delicious strawberry scent. And the best part, the multi-balm gave extreme hydration to not only my lips but also the drier patches of my skin as well as my elbows. Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm is an essential item in my coat pocket during these winter months.
