A Love Letter to Lip Balm
Cold weather is the perfect time to brave a dark bold lip a là everyone’s favourite French cool girl Jeanne Dumas. And, as every Rouje coveter knows, nothing ruins a berry pout faster than chapped lips. So it’s the perfect time to pull together a blog on one of my all-time favourite things: lip balm!
I’ve had a serious thing for lip balm for a few years now. I have a lip balm by my bed, at my boyfriend’s house, tucked away in jean pockets and in just about every bag and coat I own. I lean towards a thicker balm, no waxy finish that sinks in after two seconds for me please(!), so they’re often multi-purpose for sad skin and nails. Handy. Here all six of the best lip balms available in the UK for soft (sometimes tinted) lips, from £5.99 to £39.
