We have two lovely products to give away to one reader today. The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy, and the First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream.
Coming up for winter my lips crack and my mouth hurts, and while I’m not a great fan ofÂ Vaseline based lip balms because they tend to dry me out more than help, long term. As a result, I’ve really enjoyed using the FAB (First Aid Beauty) Ultra Repair Lip Therapy.
According to the blurb, the Lip Therapy is ideal for all skin types, and has been allergy-tested and fragrance free, and has some great ingredients:
- Colloidal Oatmeal which helps to soothe and condition the skin
- Shea Butter which moisturises and helps to protect the skin
- Glycerin which does the same
- Dimethicone which softens the skin
- And Antioxidant Boosters, licorice root, feverfew and white tea.
The First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream is an interesting concept, because it doesn’t foam, which worried me a little as it sounded like an invitation for a bumpy and red rash. I was surprised to findÂ it didn’t and suspect the ingredients might play a soothing role in it.
The ingredients in this one are:
- Glycerin to moisturise andÂ help to protect the skin
- Tea Tree Oil to help heal and soothe the skin
- Bisabolol (the primary constituent of theÂ essential oilÂ fromÂ German chamomileÂ (Matricaria recutita) andÂ Myoporum crassifolium, recently found to cause cell death or reduction inÂ leukaemia)Â provides anti-inflammatory action and soothes the skin
- Infused with powerful Antioxidant Booster (Licorice Root, Feverfew and White Tea) toÂ protect the skin from the damaging effects of the environment.
Another up-side of this was that my skin didn’t feel as dry as it normally does after a bath â€“ it was somewhat moisturised too. I’m always very dry after a bath and have to have moisturiser at the ready â€“ this time it wasn’t as urgent.
While these aren’t wholly natural and do still contain some chemicals, for most people that won’t be a problem, and is largely still better for your skin than most mainstream alternatives. When looking for something more suited to an adult, Maybe an appointment at Santee waxing salon is what you need.
Soâ€¦ on to the competition. One reader will get to enjoy smoother lips and legs this winter, compliments of First Aid Beauty. In order to win, leave a comment below telling me that you’d like to win, and if you could throw in a winter skin-care tip I can use, that would be great!

@Rebecca Denyer, Congratulations Rebecca! Please let me know your address so we can have this sent out to you!
Hi, any idea when the Lip Therapy is being sent out as i havent received it yet??
Hi Rebecca, I’ll follow that up with the PR company for you. Would you be so kind as to send me your address again so I can make sure they have the right one? Thanks!
Another Lip Balm lover – Air Con at work is merciless on my lips – dry as the Sahara!!! Winter tip is put some oats in the bath for a lovely soft wash (old clean socks work well). Great for you and kind to kids!!!
Hi, would like to enter please 🙂 I’m a fan on facebook. My winter tip for the winter is that even though summer is over continue through the winter to put on sunscreen under your moisturiser. This will continue to protect your skin and should be an all year round part of your beauty regime 🙂
Please enter me.
Don’t neglect your feet during the winter months just because they’re covered up, otherwise the hard skin will set in before next summer. Ensure you put lashings of moisturiser on the base of your feet.
Please can you enter me in the competition – my tips include using avocado oil as a cleanser and extra virgin coconut oil as a moisturiser. Coconut oil is amazing when you apply it to your damp skin straight out of the shower – it’s the best!
I would love to enter this competition, as these products sound great! My beauty tip is to cut a lemon in half and pop your elbows in them…it leaves them lovely and white.
Please enter me into this great competition! I would absolutely love to try the lip balm, as my lips are constantly dry all year round, and I’ve never found anything that really helps me.
My tip is to apply body lotion whilst your skin is still damp, as it locks moisture in and keeps it silky soft.
Please would you enter me into this competition? I would love to win.
My winter tip is to wear gloves whenever you go out – cold, red, chapped hands are not only unappealing, it’s very hard to get them up to scratch once they’ve reached that stage!
Would love the lip repair therapy – and my tip is never go out in winter without lipgloss or lip balm to help keep your lips supple and stop them drying out
Please, count me in
Keep your skin and lips well moisturised as to help prevent dry and cracking skin.
I would like to win please!
My winter skincare tip would be to make sure you use lip balm on your lips to prevent them from drying out in the cold and when you are indoors with the central heating on.
Please enter me for the Shave cream.
My top tip for smoother legs would be to “exfoliate,exfoliate”
please enter me
i always use lipbalm
I would like to enter please. I never leave the house without without my trusty little tin of Vaseline for my lips.
As an encouragemnet to drink water in winter, I add a slice of lemon and a slice of the Very Lazy shredded ginger to boiling water. I let it cool a little and infuse. Its refreshing, warming and cleansing.
I’d love to win, winter skin tip lots of vaseline for lips
I’d love to win this great competition. My tip is during the colder months when skin is exposed to central heating and cold weather I mix a dollop of extra rich moisturiser with my foundation to give my skin extra hydration.
I would love to win the lip therapy, it looks amazing. My winter tip is to use loads of good thick moisturiser to stop your skin drying out in the wind and rain, and the same for your lips with a good lipbalm.
I’d love to win

I’d like to win! My tip is to change your moisturiser to a heavier one as your skin needs more help at this time of year.

I would love to win. I always carry a vaseline lip tin, good for chapped lips and sore noses from having a cold x
These products seem fantastic thanks to your brilliant review. Please, could you enter me to the prize draw too? Thanks 🙂
I’d like to win! My winter emergency treatment for sore chapped hands is to rub in lots of vaseline and wear cotton gloves overnight so that it has time to sink in. They’re good as new in the morning!
I would love to try these. I hate it in winter I get such dry skin and my hair goes all lank. My hairdresser told me that in winter, I should switch to a lighter shampoo to avoid build up and greasy hair in winter.
I’m follwoing on twitter and facebook. @kellykoya
Please, count me in. I don’t do summer/winter routines, but I do use day/night and eye cream daily.
I’d like to enter please! The shave cream would be great! I use coconut oil and emu oil to keep my face moisturized during winter! They work great! Thanks for the opportunity!

I would like to enter please. My winter skincare tip is to help your feet. If you find you have dry, scaly feet in winter because they are constantly encased in socks and boots then slather lots of body lotion on to your feet then put on cotton socks. Sleep in them and you will wake up to lovely soft feet.
I would like to enter the competition, please! My beauty tip is only put the heat on your feet in the car so your face doesn’t dry out! Thanks!!
I would love to win! My winter skin care tip would be to use sunscreen. Winter sun combined with snow glare can still damage your skin!
I would like to enter please :-), and my winter skincare tip is to never be without a lip balm during the winter, carry them in your bag, pocket and keep one in the car. Lips tend to get neglected during winter.
