Lip balms can either be a blessing or a curse. Some formuals are so full of nasty ingredients that they do more damage than they actually repair, so it’s essential to look out for good quality products that will really help you achieve soft, kissable lips. The new Mandarin Lip Balm from ESPA is the perfect example of when spending a little more makes a big difference. The rich texture offers a little bit of everyday luxury to soften, smooth and protect the delicate lip area, while providing a delicate mandarin scent. Featuring a 100% natural formulation (including essential oils, mango butter to condition, soften and smooth, pomegranate to increase hydration and rosemary to protect against environmental damage,) this delicate balm provides instant soothing to tired or dry lips, while not overloading with grease. The cute package even includes a little mirror, perfect for popping in your handbag, and an intricate swirl design. I love the simplicity of the balm, but the extravagance of the compact pack – the contrast works exceptionally well to leave a product we all want to get our hands (and lips) on.
The Mandarin Lip Balm is available online and in stores nationwide, priced £10.00
