I am something of a lip balm obsessive; every handbag I have must contain at least one. I’ve got balms from almost every brand imaginable and in most formats; tubs, tubes, pots – you name it.
My latest discovery is the new chocolate (ding! ding!) lip balms from Palmer’s. Containing 100% pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E and with a SPF of 15 they’re perfect for the harsh winter sun and the (hopefully) hot weather soon to come.
The new formulations are Chocolate & Cherry flavour and Dark Chocolate & Mint fragrance. Both do a great job at hydrating chapped, cracked or dry lips and neither sits too heavily on the lips. I like lip balm that feels like a balm and not a lipstick; I don‘t want the interference.
My favourite of the two is definitely the Chocolate & Cherry flavour balm. Not just because it gives you a hint of chocolate when you lick your lips but also because it leaves behind a nice cherry tint on your lips. It’s got quite good staying power too; after a cup of coffee the balm was still there as was the cherry colour.
Plus they are a bargain at only £1.99!
