Soothe dry lips naturally with Burt’s Bees
With the change of season comes dry skin and parched lips as the wind picks up and we indulge in faux heating. To ensure you’re only using the best-quality natural ingredients on your precious facial region, we’ve compiled a little list of lip balms to keep on hand this winter.
Originating in Brisbane more than 100 years ago, Lucas’ Pawpaw Ointment is made from locally grown papaya and contains antibacterial properties. No longer a local secret, this soothing, multi-functional balm is now renowned worldwide and even has a small museum dedicated to its creation in Acacia Ridge.
The Burt’s Bees lip balm comes in a compact tin, with the 100% natural product packed with beeswax to seal in hydration, while coconut, sunflower and peppermint oils nourish and protect. The brand also makes wind-up stick balms in a variety of flavours like Mango Butter, Pomegranate Oil, Pink Grapefruit and Acai Berry.
Kit Cosmetics’ Essential Kit Lip Balm is made from shea butter, Australian botanicals of kakadu plum, quandong and lilly pilly, with lemon, grapefruit and peppermint essential oils. This lip-softening product also contains an added sunscreen, perfect for if you’re out and about all day.
