The Lanolips Artists Tin

As if we didn't love Lanolips enough already, they come out with this pretty tin of lanolin-powered goodness, just in time for Christmas - and it's going straight on our 'Dear Santa' list.

Limited edition (and at Whole Foods Market's stores nationwide), the tin itself is designed by Aussie fashion illustrator Kelly Smith: she won a competition organised by Lanolips's Kirsten Carriol, who's thrilled to be showcasing Kelly's work.

We're already thinking of nice things (love letters? postcards from friends?) which we can stash in the tin when we've used the last of the duo of classic Lanolips creations: multi-tasking 101 Ointment (15 g) and the Intense Hand Balm (25 ml).

Who said tins ain't what they used to be, eh?
