Protect Your Lips from Cold Sores & Winter with Herpecin L!

The holidays can be stressful. Shopping, cooking, baking, wrapping and decorating all scrunched into about 4 weeks, yikes! Unfortunately, when I get stressed and don’t get enough sleep I tend to get cold sores. Stress can trigger the virus in your body making it more likely for a break out. Cold sores are infuriating! They hurt, last too long and are not cute plus you can’t wear your favorite lip colors. Herpecin L is my secret weapon to help treat and relieve cold sores and it can be found at your local Walmart! 

Herpecin L is a unique, pharmacist-recommended* product for the treatment, protection, and relief of cold sores, sun and fever blisters. If you suffer from cold sores, you are not alone! Whether you call it a cold sore or a fever blister, oral herpes is a common infection of the mouth area that is caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). According to the National Institutes of Health, about 90% of adults have been exposed to the virus by age 50 and once you get the virus, you have it for life. Anywhere from 50%-80% of people in the world have the oral herpes virus.  So you can see, cold sores are extremely common. 

When I feel that first tingle of a cold sore coming on I reach for Herpecin L. It does an excellent job of providing instant relief from burning and itching while protecting the lips with medication that speeds up recovery so you don’t have to suffer from cold sores for a week or longer. It is a wonderful preventative treatment as well. And…I can wear all of my 3,589 lipsticks!

This affordable little beauty jewel isn’t only for cold sores my beauties. It also relieves dry, chapped lips winter lips plus makes a great base for those drying matte lipsticks. Herpecin L is safe to use every day to help relieve and protect painful cracking of lips and promotes healing without numbing or drying. It is uniquely formulated with dimethicone for protection, and SPF of 30 to help guard against the sun’s harmful rays and it has a lovely vanilla scent. It’s perfect for winter skiing and snowboarding to prevent windburn and sunburn. Plus, it’s so affordable at under $5 from Walmart you’ll want one to keep in your makeup bag, one in the car and one in your nightstand. 

This winter and all year ’round, I’m reaching for Herpecin L to keep cold sores at bay and keep my lips soft, supple and moisturized!

    I am so fortunate not to get cold sores though other people in my family do get them. I didn’t realize that you could use HerpecinL for run of the mill chapped lips. Cool.

  4. All this time I just mention the other brand if someone gets cold sores as a result of aesthetic treatment, I didn’t know Herpecin so I’ll keep this in mind

  5. I have to find this in the store since I love having balms around and this one sounds great.
