The new Shell lip balm in every girl’s handbag

  Saturday 17th March 2012

Most fashion czarinas would agree that the nifty lip balm is the raison d’être for the ultimate kissable pout. If the lip balm is an absolute beauty essential for you, then the brand-new Shell lip balm is something you cannot say no to. These cute little things have already made their way into the bags of Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley; it can only be a matter of time before this is the queen bee of lip treats.

Each balm comes in a shell individually collected for re-use from the beach and washed thoroughly. Every one is unique.

The lip balm itself is handmade from some of the most beneficial organic ingredients: it contains coconut oil, known to keep skin smooth; rosehip oil, a natural healer for very dry skin; beeswax, an age-old skin softener; lanolin wax, a natural lubricant; jojoba oil, known to maintain skin’s natural pH balance; macadamia oil, a non-greasy moisturiser; and mango seed butter, a natural sun protector and wound healer.

Packaged in a small, drawstring pouch and with a mini mirror inside, the balm is a perfect gift. The six varieties of shell currently available include tiger crown, turquoise, white pearl, white frangipani, mocha and oriental fan; why not collect them all?

If your lips need extra TLC this season, or if you just want to indulge in your childhood hobby of collecting lovely shells, now is the perfect time. At £12.99, it’s a covetable beauty find.
