The Multi-purpose Lip Baume We’re Besotted With

By Terry's Baume de Rose Review

It’s not like I’m easily influenced (I am TOTALLY, 100% impressionable), but if something’s good enough for someone I admire, I will want it. Which was certainly the case with By Terry’s beautiful {Baume de Rose SPF 15} – beloved by Sienna, Gwyneth and Jennifer Aniston to name a few, this balm has long been on my beauty lust-list.

The result of a ‘happy error’, this petal-powered balm is jam-packed with exotic, skin-nourishing ingredients. Terry’s original ‘ode to rose’ (she’s a self-confessed rose obsessive), this is based on essential rose wax infused with Siberian blossom oil, bio-ceramides and soothing vitamins to replenish, protect and revitalise dry, chapped lips, skin and cuticles throughout the seasons.

If I’m completely honest, I’d have bought it for its looks alone – the most beautiful frosted glass jar with a silvered lid that makes an ultra-chic addition to my bedside table – but its the contents that are truly other-wordly…

Mmmmm-inducingly scented, the texture it beautifully thick and indulgent without feeling sticky – leaving dry lips feeling kissably soft and conditioned for hours. I’m a lip balm addict – I’ve tried them all – but the beauty of this balm is that you’ll soon forget you need a lip balm, so potent is its rehabilitative capabilities. A little goes a long way, and any excess can be massaged into nail beds to prevent hangnails and help keep your cuticles in tip top condition.

This also makes light work of soothing dry, scaly patches – instantly relieving itchiness and irritation – and is gorgeous as a super-subtle highlighter; just dab a tiny bit along your cheekbones, brow bones, collarbones… anywhere you want to draw attention for an enviably dewy gleam (that’s good for you)!

It’s a definitive make up bag must-have – get one for your desk, one for your handbag, one for your glove compartment and one for your nightstand – to guarantee you’re never, EVER baume-less (quelle horreur). And, for those of you who like a hint-of tint, invest in {Baume de Rose Nutri-Couleur} – available in six, sheer yet sumptuous shades for ‘your lips but better’ effect.
