Lip balm is one of the most important items in our make-up kits. It does so many jobs – keeps lips moisturised and plumped, works a treat on dry patches of skin, smoothes eyebrows and even tames frizzy hair.
So we love these Lypsyl Soft Touch Mirror Compacts, which at £4.99 (Superdrug) are a bargain. Soft lip balm and a handy mirror combined is a simple, but brilliant, idea. And there’s even a choice of flavours – original, which is a warm oriental scent with orange, lemon and white florals, Zingy Mandarin, which is a blend of mandarin and mint, Luxurious Vanilla, with creamy caramel, and Fresh Orange Blossom, with jasmine and ylang ylang. The balms have SPF15 to protect lips and are packed with shea butter, vitamin E, cocoa butter and aloe vera to help repair and protect lips.
