Love Island's Harriett Blackmore is an icon. From her unwavering commitment to the drama and a full face of glam to taking absolutely no BS from haters (Jess White), we are still mourning the moment Harriett and romantic interest, Ronnie Vint were cruelly dumped from the Island.

Luckily for us, Harriett has spilled plenty of tea since leaving the ITV show including plans for a 'proper' first date with Ronnie, what Konnor Ewudzi is really like and why she refused to reply to Jess during her exit.

The 24-year-old also shared some brilliant beauty intel, including the staple beauty product that the villa can't stop using. Turns out, it's a £12 nipple cream - and for good reason, too.

"It's so random but Lansinoh nipple cream," Harriett tells heat. "Everyone puts it on their lips like lip gloss. I don't know if anyone's seen this but yeah, everyone uses it in the villa."

Lansinoh HPA Lanolin Nipple Cream is a cult product for saving sore nipples and is especially known for its healing powers during breastfeeding. However, it's also an incredible product for dry and chapped lips.

Grazia's Head of Beauty, Joely Walker tells us, "Tons of models and celebrities that I've interviewed over the years have raved about using nipple balm as a lip balm. I finally succumbed on maternity leave and haven't looked back. It's glossy without being sticky, sits really smoothly over the top of lipstick, and the big tube lasts ages. Team Lansinoh for life."

One Boots reviewer also shared how it's a brilliant product for anyone taking acne medication and wrote, "Going on accutane completely destroyed my lips, they were cracked and bleeding and blistered no matter what lip balms or ointments I put on.

"Someone in a skincare group recommended pure lanolin to me and it was worth a try and it managed to save my lips within a few days. it lasts a long time as I only need to put a thin layer on morning and night, so it's well worth the money."

There you have it guys. Nipple cream is the ultimate hack for dry lips and it's Love Island-approved.
