There’s gold in that there lip balm

A much-loved lip balm is now even more precious

There’s gold in that there lip balm

Terry de Gunzburg’s newest lip balm is a great little treat either to buy for oneself or to slip into somebody else’s Christmas stocking. Terry, who was the genius behind the Yves Saint Laurent beauty range, including the cult Touche Eclat, started her own By Terry skincare and make-up range some 10 years ago. While Light Expert is probably her most famous product (a light-reflecting foundation on a click-application brush), her Baume de Rose lip balm also has a large fan club.

For Christmas she’s making it even more glamorous by enriching it with 24ct pink gold to help plump up the lips even more. In there, along with her signature rose extracts and the gold, are also lipo-regenerating agents which help moisturise and soften the lips.
