It was my sister’s birthday recently. Her birthday is three weeks after mine and her gift to me was very, very generous so I wanted to give her something special. Something from the heart.
It had to be girly and smell good. And I wanted it to knock her socks off which meant it had to be super moisturising with a good amount of exfoliation. So after some experimentation I came up with Em’s Tickle-Me-Pink Body Scrub.
It’s not the most exciting beauty item one can purchase, but lip balm is probably a must-have for the majority of us. The heat and air-conditioning can wreak havoc on our lips in summer, while the winter wind is the arch-nemesis.
I use lip balm – a lot. Reviewing it was harder than I expected because I’ve always had multiple lip balms on the go. You’ll find them scattered around, next to my bed, at my desk, in my handbag … I’ve even found one nestled in the pocket of last year’s winter coat. And usually they’re different types and brands, making it tricky to narrow down the good from the bad.
Not anymore. It’s time to scrutinise …
