Day 14: Sweet lips
I'm a sucker for packaging and Andrea Garland's lip balms in recycled vintage tins, pill boxes and compacts (above) have got to be the prettiest around.
Made from natural ingredients (shea butter, sweet almond oil, organic beeswax, red raspberry seed oil, vitamin E oil…), they're part of London-based aromatherapist Garland's handmade range of natural beauty products. Ethical, environmentally friendly and one of a kind, who wouldn't want one of these for Christmas?
They're available from Andrea Garland's website, ASOS and Liberty and cost from £16. The unique packaging softens the blow at checkout, plus once used, you can get a refill for a fraction of the price.
For a cheaper stocking filler, check out the new Vaseline Lip Therapy sticks for £1.99. Yep, your favourite lip salve in a tin now comes in bullet form, available in Rosy Lips, Aloe Vera (both pictured below), Cocoa Butter and Original. Get ready to pucker up under the mistletoe.
