Product Description

Details

Super smooth hypoallergenic lip balm containing an active extract of liquorice

A 100% natural unperfumed clear hypoallergenic lip balm containing an active extract of liquorice (Glycrihizic Acid).

Trialled successfully by the Herpes Virus Association. 

Skin Shop's Liquorice Balm is the only balm with an extract of active liquorice in it rather than just liquorice flavouring.

Liquorice balm only has a faint smell of liquorice and does not taste of liquorice.

Liquorice actives are  extracted from the roots of the plant.

Additional Information

Additional Information

A super smooth hypoallergenic and intensely moisturising lip balm containing an active extract of liquorice to help guard against cold sores.

 

Glycrihizic Acid has been found to have a protective action against outbreaks of the herpes complex virus that causes cold sores.

 

Skin Shop's Liquorice Balm contains a highly concentrated extract of active liquorice and is not simply made with a liquorice flavouring, like many other balms claiming to contain liquorice.

 

A 100% natural and vegetarian lip balm.

 

Ingredients: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Pimpinella Anisum Oil, BHT, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Limonene, Linalool.

 

Contains only natural ingredients. (Suitable for vegetarians but not vegans as it contains Beeswax which is a product created by bees.)

I've always suffered with reaccurant coldsore outbreaks at least one every month. But since using this 3 times a day I haven't had a out break for over 3 months ! It keeps my lips feeling moisturiser. It tastes like sherbet and liquorice! Its now my must have product! (Posted on 29/06/2018)
Doesn't stop cold sores but good product*Review by Vicki

Unfortunately this product has not stopped cold sores and I'm still experiencing the same amount of breakouts as I did previously, if not more. It is a nice product though which is easy to apply (I use a cotton bud) and my current batch has lasted 1.5 months with maybe a month's usage left. It seems to have worked for most others though and feels like and soft on the lips and doesn't have the liquorice taste. Will be trying the Melissa and liquorice lip balm next to see if its a stronger product. (Posted on 03/05/2018)

WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR*Review by Rags

I am a professional medical provider and I have dealt with cold sores my whole life. I have don't research and tried everything, but you cannot avoid the stressors that trigger cold sores. For me, the moment any UV rays hit my lips (all of summer) and any type of stress (majority of my life) will cause a breakout that lasts me an embarrassing 1-2 weeks.It is also very common for that breakout to be followed by another breakout. Sure, prescription medications work GREAT, but they only try and stop the viruses replication cycle if caught and taken on time. This product however changed my life. I apply this all the time, especially at night. This product should be available EVERYWHERE and made aware to those who suffer from breakouts. Since I started using it, I've gotten one breakout that I was able to stop with the use of this product and taking one dose of my prescribed medication (acyclovir). The medication alone couldn't have done that. GET IT and don't think twice about it! (Posted on 27/04/2018)

Miracle in a tin*Review by June

For years I have suffered from awful cold sores and as once young girl I even remember when Nitty Nora the Bug Explorer as we called her at school put perfume on my lips as a remedy. My word it hurt some. Anyway as a 60 year old now I still suffer as you would with this awful virus. But I can honestly I have found this Liquorice Balm to be the best thing ever for limiting them to a couple a year as opposed to almost every 2 months. For me this is a miracle balm.
If you suffer from cold sores then you will know of the pain they cause and how Iill they can make you feel before a breakout. Not to mention how unsightly they are.
So if you are on the fence, try this Liquorice Balm for yourself it has helped me and could do the same for you. (Posted on 03/04/2018)

I have been buying this for a few years and it is really very rare for me to get a coldsore now. I must admit my last purchase seems 'slippier' and I really prefer it when its a bit 'grainy' as this feels more effective on your lips. Overall though, I wouldn't be without it and I have one in my bag and one by the bedside. (Posted on 26/03/2018)
Magic!*Review by Lucy

I have tried everything for recurring cold sores - over the counter creams, those awful pads which curl up and fall off, tablets from the doctor, natural remedies etc. This is the only thing that works for me. I use it every day as a general lip balm but if I ever feel a flare-up I just start applying this every couple of hours. I have seen a massive reduction in cold sores, maybe only a handful since I started using it around 2 years ago rather than every month or so before. If one does manage to fight through then this balm stops it in its tracks and the life cycle is dramatically reduced. Try it - it works! (Posted on 13/03/2018)

I've tried this balm almost on a daily basis for over 2 months now and am definitely buying more because I'm running out. I slather this on and use it multiple times a day, so probably for a less avid lip balm user, this little tub will last much longer.

I can't say for sure this prevents cold sores because I've been trying to improve my health in many different ways to prevent them and not by just using this balm.

I love the consistency of the balm- not waxy and very soft, maybe almost slippery on the lips.

The price is fair, but I'd like to have more information such as what percentage of the lip balm is liquorice. (Posted on 30/05/2017)

Best preventative product for cold sores*Review by emma
Price

I have just reordered this amazing lip balm; the previous tin lasted for 2 years exactly. I wouldn't be without this little pot of brilliance as it's actually improved my life. I used to suffer from chronic reoccurring cold sores aroud my lip and I tried so many preventative products, natural remedies and anti viral creams but this balm is by far the best. If I feel an itch or tingle I apply it and the cold sore never appears. In fact I apply it everyday and use it more like a lip gloss; it's that nice. I used to get 7 or 8 cold sores on my lip a year. In the past year I've had 1. Unfortunately it doesn't do anything once you have the blisters but if you use it most days it really helps to keep them away. I have never left a review before in my life but this product is so good and has helped me so much I had to share. (Posted on 04/08/2016)

I had read a number of reviews about liquorice lip balm and was suspicious of the benefits. Following a spell of near continuous cold sores I decided that I needed to try something and found this product. I have since used it every night before bed and have not had a single cold sore since, it has exceeded my expectations and lasts a very long time whilst giving me peace of mind. Would recommend to anyone who is debating buying this as it is more effective and cheaper than other products out there. (Posted on 23/03/2016)

I have used this product for several years now. however the formula seems to have changed and its no longer smooth its grainy unless warmed up but my biggest issue is that whenever I order a batch there is generally an offer on and it lets you select the offer but doesn't actually tell you what it includes! last time I ended up with the Lip gel as well which I did not want and had real trouble returning it and this time I rang to check what the offer was and the lady on the phone out me on hold for a good 5 minutes while she went to find out as even she didn't know!

Whilst the Liquorice Balm is a great product for your Lips I have found that it works amazingly if you have Insect / Gnat bites.

I always carry a pot throughout the summer and so many of my friends have now tried Lip balm for bites and everyone says the same, they are amazed the bites have stopped itching.
