Win one of two Letibalm hampers (I’m not sure how I would get through a Joburg winter without these)

June 18, 2019

Out of the many things that make winter uncomfortable (aside from getting up to run when it’s dark and 2 degrees) is the dryness in Joburg. Oh, and a higher risk of colds and flu. And wanting all the soup and pasta.

I used to get such dry hands that they used to crack (eeeuw), and I had to sleep with gloves after I’d shmeered on lots of hand cream. My lips used to feel like sandpaper, and even without being sick, I used to have a dry nose area. Basically, I looked my worst, and avoided handshakes.

I don’t really have these issues any more – I consume more essential fatty acids, which apparently is a good starting point for less scaly skin. I moisturise my hands regularly – I’ve learnt what makes them better, and what doesn’t work for me.

For lips and nose, it’s Letibalm from Ivohealth, which I had never even heard of until I started getting product samples from them about three years ago. They have been amazing “face savers” – they gently moisturise skin, help repair painful cracks and soothe irritation. I use it on my lips before I apply a matte or long-stay lipstick, and as a result they glide on (I don’t have to smack my dry lips any more). Letibalm is the top-selling lip balm in Spain and Portugal, and the only nose and lip repair available in South Africa.

It has good things such as centella (an antioxidant), cocoa butter, witch hazel, lemon balm and vitamin E. The range includes Letibalm Paediatric Nose and Lips Repair Balm (suitable for babies and up), Letibalm Nose and Lips Repair Balm, and Letibalm Nose and Lips Repair Fluid. 

The range now has refreshed packaging, and there’s a new product – Letibalm Junior Nose and Lips Repair Fluid, for kids aged one and up. It has a nice strawberry flavour, has African mango and shea butter to moisturise, nourish and protect, allantoin to help with healing, and menthol and camphor to ease breathing.

Letibalm is available at a recommended retail price of R76 from Dis-Chem, selected Checkers stores and independent pharmacies.


You could win one of two Letibalm hampers, worth over R300 each. Each Letibalm kit will contain all four of the products in the range.

To enter

Just comment below, and you’ll be entered into the draw. The giveaway closes on Tuesday 25 June 2019 at 10am, after which the winner will be announced on the Rattle and Mum Facebook page.

This giveaway is open to South African residents only. The prize cannot be exchanged for cash or anything else in the Ivohealth range.

    This give away came at a perfect time.I would love this for my family,our dry & sensitive skin will be put to the test during these cold days.We all know how badly winter season can mess up our skin.The repeated nose blows from cold and flu will leave our skin dry, chapped & sore. Letibalm to the rescue,I like the fact that it also accommodates babies (my little sister always has dry,cracked lips.My brother on the other side always has runny nose and the continuos wiping causes irritation around his nose).Letibalm is sure gonna turn things around

    Being on the other side of 60 doesn’t help with dry skin and chapped lips. This prize would assist tremendously in the ageing skin.
