Call off the search – we’ve found the ultimate winter pout protector in Burt’s Bees bestselling (and great-value) lip balms

At any given time I have at least three lip balms on rotation, stuffed into various pockets, drawers and handbags so I’m never further than arm’s-reach from a fix. Sounds extravagant, but when your favourite pout saver – namely Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balms – costs just £4 a pop, then why not? While the price tag is a major bonus, why I’m actually obsessed with these genuinely brilliant balms (apparently one’s sold every second around the world) is how gorgeous they feel – moisturising and super long-lasting, they give lips a pampered makeover without being sticky. They also get brownie points for being in tube format, not a pot (hygiene first!), and with a variety of flavours to choose from, there’s one to suit every taste.
