Award-winning SPF Lip Tints

Chantecaille Lip Chic There may be days right now when it feels like summer's over - but we're confident that warmer days will boomerang back. And besides: an SPF lip product is a useful insurance policy against lip lines, year-round. These are a pleasure to use - and each scored highly with our 10-strong panels of dedicated Beauty Bible testers, putting a smile (and at least an SPF15) on their faces.

Liz Earle Superskin‘Keep a good skin oil with you all the time – it’s so versatile for skin, hair and nails. Add a couple of drops to your moisturiser at night, massage into cuticles for strong supple nails, apply a tiny amount to frizzy locks or dry ends – or use more for an overnight hair repair mask. You can even take off your makeup with it. I love Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate, £40.50 for 28 ml bottle,, or 01983-813913.
