Now that we’re in the middle of (another)lockdown, my makeup routine has taken a serious backseat. Yes, every time I need to attend a Zoom meeting, I’m fully mascara’d up, but the rest of the time? I’m taking the opportunity to let my skincare routine take centre stage. I’m babying everything from my hair to my skin and nails, so hopefully, everything looks and feels 100% once we’re allowed back out and about.
One of my must-haves in my newly paired-back routine is a great lip balm. Having dry or cracked lips is my idea of utter hell, and with cold temperatures outside, and the heating on indoors, it’s easy for things to start feeling dehydrated. When Maiiro sent over their gorgeous Lip Salve, it felt like perfect timing. Formulated with Kelpogen5™ and a special blend of protective natural antibacterial oils and butters, this salve not only hydrates, but it also helps delicate lip skin restore itself from within.
The result is lips which feel silky soft, and I’ve been keeping it at my desk so I can top up as needed throughout the day. It’s completely tasteless, and applies to a matte finish, which is great for my no-makeup days. The formula has been designed to be as effective at hydrating in the heat as it is in the cold, so I know I’ll be keeping it handy as we (finally) move into summer, and it even works perfectly as a base for heavier lipstick formulas!
Maiiro Organic Lip Salve is priced at £21.95 and is available here.
