The sun's officially left the building which can mean only one thing - it's nearly Winter. Ok, we might be exaggerating a little but we're fans of the old Scout approach to our beauty routine, 'Always be prepared' and that means starting early.
The rain's returned, our brand new gladiator sandals that only saw the light of day that one time are back in their box and our skin is already fighting the lack of Vitamin D and crazy Swinter weather. Our first port of call? Lip balm, obvs.
Is there anything worse than chapped lips? In our books, no sir. That fabulous new M.A.C Morange lipstick you treated yourself to won't look so great when it's peeling off. And that hot first date you've been looking forward to for weeks? Yup, that perfectly kissable pout you were aiming for has just been scuppered. Damn.
Time to invest in some seriously moisturising, ultra-nourishing and chapped-lip banishing lip balm. From the legendary EOS dome and L'Occitane's super rich lip balm packed full of shea butter to Dior's totally covetable tinted balm and Clinique's infamous Chubby Stick, there's a lip balm to cover all manner of cold weather sins.
For those skincare SOS moments, treat yo' self (and your lips) to some serious lip balm TLC. Not sure which one's right for you? We've rounded up the all time best lip balms.
