    Letibalm is my Nose and Lip staple each winter | Win a hamper for yourself! {Closed}

    Letibalm is my Nose and Lip staple each winter | Win a hamper for yourself! {Closed}

    Each year when winter rears its head I tell you guys how much I love letiblam’s Nose and Lip repair products. This year is no different! I always carry a letibalm in my handbag and since I’ve been using it I haven’t had bleeding lips during winter. Even when that dreaded colds come along my nose doesn’t end up with skins sticking in all direction from tissue overuse.

    Honey and Ginger Remedy

    While we are on the subject of colds and flu, letbilam shared a recipe with us for a natural remedy and I’d love to share it with you guys.


    • 1 Cup of honey
    • 2 Lemons, sliced
    • a Chunk of fresh ginger, sliced

    Add the lemon slices, ginger and honey in layers in a jar. Start with honey, then ginger and then a spoon of honey. Repeat till you’ve used all your ingredients. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 12 hours. To use, add a couple of teaspoons full into hot water and drink as warm as possible. This remedy can be saved in the fridge for up to two months!

    Letibalm Nose and Lip Repair Balm

    Whether it’s caused by allergies, hay-fever, colds or flu, blowing the nose repeatedly can damage delicate skin leaving it red, chapped and sore. Letibalm has been especially created to protect and care for the lips, nose and the skin in-between. Originally from Spain, it’s the first balm of its kind and the only nose and lip repair balm available in South Africa. Letibalm gently moisturises dry skin, helps to repair painful cracks and calms irritation. It also creates a protective layer on the skin to prevent further chapping. Thanks to natural decongestants menthol and camphor, Letibalm also helps to ease breathing.

    Pricing & Stockists

    Letibalm is available at a recommended retail price of R69.90 from Dis-Chem, selected Checkers stores as well as independent pharmacies. It comes in 3 variants:

    • Letibalm fluid (10ml tube) – RRP R69.90
    • The Letibalm (10ml jar) – RRP R69.90
    • A Letibalm Paediatric (10ml jar) – for children 0 to 8 years – RRP R69.90

    Top Tips: Caring for your nose and lips this winter:

    • Keep the skin well-moisturised.
    • Use very soft tissues or toilet paper with aloe vera or calendula.
    • Gently pat or blot the nose rather than wipe.
    • Apply Letibalm nose and lip repair balm to protect, moisturize and help heal the skin.
    • Wash with lukewarm water, avoiding harsh soaps or exfoliators.
    • Use a saline spray to keep nasal passages moist.
    • Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air.
    • Drink plenty of water, hot broth or herbal tea.

      My fave winter warmer is my Superbottle that I got at Clicks! I love it because it keeps me warm as I fall asleep in winter. No plugs or anything so no worries plus I can put drops of essential oils on it. I’ve never used letibalm before but I would love to try 🙂

      I love winter! The food, the clothes and even the cold. Soup is my favourite winter warmer. From very healthy vegetable to luxurious mushroom. Easy to prepare in bulk!
