When not busy being kissed, lips can be in for a hard time. Their protective covering – the stratum corneum is far thinner than the rest of your skin, plus lips are minus any sebaceous glands that help keep skin moisturised. This all adds up to a poorly pout, one which can feel and look dry and not so kissable. Not so lip smacking good.
The new Drink Up Hydrating lip balms from Origins can't help but pack a beautiful pout in their diddy 15ml tubes which are incredibly purse pop friendly. With super hydrating natural ingredients – orange peel wax and wheat germ extract are in the mix, that form a protective barrier over the lips, a cocktail of oils help to simultaneously hydrate. A hint of a tint is left on the lips, making them look sunshine sexy and flake free. Available in 8 delicious colours and with kooky names such as Watermelon Wow and Nude Nectarine, they make for a must try and buy. Slick and kiss!
