Can you think of anything more painful? The texture of Ultra Violette’s Sheen Screen is smooth, thick and super hydrating. The bonus is there is absolutely no sticky residue.

Joanna: Aspect Hydrating Lip Balm
“I’m usually a Lanolips kinda gal, and the 101 Ointment still has a place in my handbag, but I’ve recently discovered Aspect’s Hydrating Lip Balm which contains coconut oil, as well as other skin-nourishing and protective ingredients like shea butter and avocado oil. I really feel like it does wonders for my lips, and if you like the packaging of a Chapstick, this one’s for you.”
Elena: Hunter Lab Lip Ammo

The all-natural blend of vanilla and peppermint extracts give Lip Ammo a refreshing and addictive flavour and scent, making it the balm I reach for above all others.”
