It seems like every woman and her poodle (my take on the classic ‘man and his dog’) in Australia is in love with Lanolips. Until a few weeks ago, I had never even looked at a tube. Sure, I had heard all the hype but there was just one thing that steered me away from wanting to give it a go ….. the Lanolin.

I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach.
