Winners 2017

Best FreeFrom Skincare Product 2017

Benecos, Classic Lip Balm

“Looked natural on my lips. It also felt natural and very comfortable to wear in the place of lipstick. After using for a month I certainly feel as if the condition of my lips has improved. I have areas at the corners of my mouth which can become cracked but these disappeared almost after the first use and all I  have now is soft and conditioned lips. Far superior to other mainstream brands that I have tried.”

“It glides on and sits well. I found it to be very moisturising. I used it less often than other lip balms because its effects lasted longer. The sense of protection stayed significantly longer. Sometimes I just can’t get any relief from dryness – this was impressive. My lips are more moisturised. Excellent and great value for money.”

“This has been my favourite product out of the whole lot. It is really comfortable and nourishing. Really moisturising. Honestly my lips couldn’t have been drier – I was really self conscious, as I don’t usually have flaky lips, but this product sorted them right out!”
