Lanolips Banana Balm 3-in-1
Dry-lip season is almost with us. (Sob.) And while our all-time favourite balm is our own Beauty Bible Lip Balm (click here to find it), we're not averse to a little fling on the side - especially with something as luscious as this. It's our friend Kirsten Carriol's latest addition to her award-winning Lanolips line-up, which has been slicking lanolin goodness onto various parts of our faces and bodies for a few years now. And this is definitely our favourite creation yet: a delicious (in every way) softening lip balm, which combines Lanolips's signature lanolin with an ingredient from - yes - banana.
Turns out banana extract is rich in potassium, natural oils and minerals, vitamins A, B, C and E - and while it's not flavoured in a Juicy Fruit-ish way, there's a delicate whisper-of-banana to this.
There are two aspects of this we particularly enjoy: the fab, angled dispenser (for ease of application) - and a becoming shimmer, which means this looks great layered over your fave lipstick, as well as over bare lips.
In fact, we'd say we've gone slightly bananas for it.
