With the arrival of warmer weather comes the annual switch up of our skincare, fragrance, and makeup.

At this time of year, you might start thinking about lighter products and formulas and this sentiment extends to the lip finishes we choose.

It’s a myth that chapped lips are only a winter affliction so, rather than opting for a traditional lipstick, a moisturising lip balm, which counteracts the effects of drier air, is ideal. Don’t assume that this means you have to forgo a flush of beautiful colour, however. Cue, our Satin Lip Balm, available in four irresistible hues. Read on to find out why it is our summer must-have beauty bag update.

A Comfortable Finish

Satin Lip Balm in 203 Espresso Lips

Our effortlessly comfortable Satin Lip Balm is formulated with high levels of triglycerides for a creamy and smooth texture that’s a joy to apply. Deeply moisturising, it effortlessly melts into the lips, rather than sitting on top of the skin, for a truly enjoyable wear – especially on those hotter days. The addition of shiny polymers encourages maximum adherence to the lips furthering a comfortable, cushiony finish. Trust us when we say that it’ll be love at first swipe.

Hero Ingredients

As well as being extremely comfortable to wear, this unique lip balm is enriched with two ultra-nourishing and hard-working active ingredients, argan oil and lychee fruit extracts. Here’s why they are so essential to our winning formula…

Argan Oil

Often referred to as ‘liquid gold’, this star ingredient is not only intensely moisturising, it also activates cell regeneration. It is packed with omega fatty acids, a high concentration of vitamin E, and plenty of free radical-fighting antioxidants. Rejuvenating, hydrating, and anti-ageing, this powerhouse is a true treat for the lips. What’s more, it is hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types.

Active Lychee Fruit Extracts

Protective and intensely hydrating, lychee fruit extracts contain high levels of polyphenols which hold potent anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties. It is also rich in vitamin C, vitamin B-complex and phytonutrient flavonoids. Known as free radical ‘scavengers’, these antioxidants defend against oxidative stress caused by pollution and other environmental factors.

How Will You Wear Yours?

Satin Lip Balm in 201 Bitten Lips

The lusciously lightweight formula is buildable so you can add as much, or a little colour as you like. We like a subtle wash for daytime and or layered over your lipstick for added subtle sheen after dark.

We also suggest using the warmth of your fingertips to pat this multifunctional wonder onto the cheeks for a deliciously dewy glow all summer long.

Which colour will you choose? Petal Lips is a sheer pink that complements all skin tones; Bitten Lips is red-hued and provides a romantically suggestive flush; Almond Lips is a red-brown shade created to enhance your natural beauty; and finally, Espresso Lips is a richly indulgent colour with the same energy-giving potential as your morning coffee.
