Happy Valentines Day – are you a great kisser? Either way you could probably put a little tin of this Soap and Glory goodness to good use, even if it’s just to pout your way through the office and pretend you don’t care that those bunch of flowers at reception aren’t for you. These little tins of greatness come in three variants: Chocolate Cherry, Juicy Peach and Sweet Coconut. They all contain mango butter to moisturise, apricot butter for weather protection (I’m not entirely sure what this means – maybe preventing wind damage?!) and lingonberry oil to boost barrier repair. Two of the shades are tinted, but I’ve got the clear coconut one so I can’t really tell you about the depth of the colour, only the fact that it’s a pretty great formula all round. It’s like a combination of a balm and gloss, being quite heavy but not too sticky, a little moisturising without being too intense and glossy enough to be worn alone. It’s not anywhere near as slippery as Vaseline and it smells utterly fab, as well as tasting a little sweet and lovely. The formula has a very slight undertone of sparkle too – you can just see the delicate pink shimmers in the clear gloss to catch the light and enhance the lips. Although there are loads of products out there like this at the moment, the strong formula and delicate scent make it a winner for me. Happy Valentines – pucker up.
