6 Nourishing Lip Balms To Try In 2021
It’s claypot rice and hot pot season, which means Hong Kong’s treasured winter months have arrived. While putting on extra layers of sweaters and coats come naturally to most of us during colder months, we sometimes forget to give our bodies the extra love and attention it needs as they fight to keep us warm. From eating spicy food and being exposed to cold, dry weather, our lips bear through it all, yet are often neglected in our skincare routine. The result? Chapped, dry lips.
From nourishing overnight lip masks, to lightweight yet moisturising lip balms that you can reapply throughout the day, we're listing the best luxury lip balms to try.
