A deliciously soothing set of balms

Lip balms arouse heated passions in girly circles. There are some who are addicted to Smith’s Rosebud salve (first picture, £7), while others never use anything but Kiehl’s lusciously moisturising but unscented lip balm (second picture, £8.50), but there are many other contenders for our patronage.

A new one to me is a very cute balm from a French-Vietnamese cosmetics range called Bi Mat Cay which has been devised by Olivier Khuu. It is deliciously soothing and moisturising and comes in a sweet little pink pot. It’s part of a set of four balms (third picture). One is aimed at hands, one for skin, one is a healing balm (apply it to irritated areas or use it for muscular pains and headaches), while the fourth is a lip balm. £24 for the four.
