Lady Anti Monkey Butt

Yeah … whilst I’m not sure I’m completely onboard with the packaging of Lady Anti Monkey Butt (or even the name for that matter) it’s the time of the year where we talk about chafing, and this year I want to talk about that most taboo of topics: the permanently moist underboob.  Summer, for a fat lass, can be a season of multiple minor irritations, […]

ARK Skincare Derriere Facial

  By Laurin When I first agreed to contribute to Get Lippie at the beginning of this year, I imagined filing some light-hearted musings on perfume each week, maybe with a few words on moisturiser here and there. I did not expect to spend my mornings rollerballing napalm onto my bottom, or my evenings applying thigh creams that caused my flesh to stick together like […]

Gels from L’Occitane, Ioma and Champneys.

Confession time: I am not doing well in this heat.  I am exhausted to the point where I’ve actually considered getting myself admitted  to hospital just to get some damn rest (and I’m not even slightly joking), sleeping in this humidity is proving next to impossible, and when you add in that July brought some bad tidings, and well, it’s not been my favourite month […]

Rock Face and Rugby, A Match Made in Heaven?

****DISCLAIMER: This article contains sport, references to sporting personalities, and possibly even images of men in shorts sport. Be warned.**** Oh, and it’s been written by MrLippie … Ever since Jonny Wilkinson burst into the national consciousness of England in 2003, there’s been a slowly increasing awareness that rugby players are not always the rugged bastions of semi-Neanderthal manliness that they have often been portrayed […]

Wedding Prep with Braun Gillette Venus Naked Skin IPL

Following on from my last Wedding Preparation post where I talked about the Slendertone Face, this week I’m going to talk to you about armpits.  Specifically, my armpits.  I spoil you guys, I know.  You see, my wedding dress has no sleeves, and I’ve now spent approximately two thirds of the entire wedding budget (not even nearly joking) on shrugs, boleros and other items in […]

Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Collection (and a little hint …)

The sharp-eyed amongst my readers might have noticed a tiny Christmas flavour sneaking into Get Lippie this week, and you’d be right.  I’m only posting about those presents that have genuinely caught my eye though, and yesterday’s giant lip balm, and today’s giant gingerbread man have both made me laugh so I thought they were worth a mention. Chock-full of shower-gel, body polish, soap and […]

FuturePrimitive Soap Co – Dust Witch

We’re moving towards that time of year again, Halloween.  I can’t be bothered with decorations, or Halloween-themed makeup or nails, but I do like to smell slightly Halloween-y.  Yes, I’m a bit odd. The last couple of years, I’ve bought my Halloween-themed toiletries from a US-based company, and  I love them, but FuturePrimitive have been tickling my blogging radar for a while now, thanks to […]

TightsPlease SkinKiss Fake Tan Tights

Regular readers will know that fake tan isn’t really my kind of thing. Frankly, I think life is too short to spend all that time exfoliating, moisturising, tanning, and smelling of biscuits, so I think I’ve had one tan in the last ten years!  When I got an email from TightsPlease suggesting I try their “tanning tights” I was a little amused.  Apparently, you just […]

Hot Weather Saviours

What do you mean it’s cold out?  Well, I wrote this during the hot weather we had recently, and these products were a godsend.  A godsend, I tell you.  So, there’s no harm in leaving this post as it is, there will be hot weather again … at some point … Dove Natural Touch Deodorant with Dead Sea Minerals Cool-scented with cucumber (rather strongly scented, […]

Chafing? “Chub rub”? Blisters? Have I got a miracle cure for you …

Hot weather is great, isn’t it?  Sandals are wonderful, aren’t they?  Skimpy clothes are simply marvellous, don’t you think? Well, not if you are prone to chafing, or have wobbly bits that like to rub together, or your sandals have eaten your feet. Sandals are evil.  I hate them.  They hate you, as well. Last year I wrote about Bodyglide, and I think it’s time […]

Antipodes Saviour Skin Balm

 Some products claim to be mult-purpose, and some products truly are, Antipodes Saviour Skin Balm is beyond amazing, moisturising, nourishing, and soothing.  And how cute is that tin?   I’ve used it on cuticles, feet, lips, on MrLippie’s disgustingly dry elbows, on zits, burns and cuts and scrapes (what can I say, we’re an accident-prone pair here at Lippie Mansions).   It’s a thick, golden […]

Braun Oral B Triumph 5000 Toothbrush

Gotta love a toothbrush named after a motorbike, right? Well, I do, anyway.  After years of slogging away with the cheapest and least powerful of Oral B’s electric toothbrush collection (an Oral B Professional Care 500 – which is still pretty darn good, more about that later), and then finally indulging in tooth whitening, I decided it was time to upgrade my toothbrush too.  I’d […]
