Product reviews from our experts…


With a soft tint and similarly subtle scent, this is a next level lip balm, delivering on hydration and longevity. Raspberry and Rosehip has a rose garden semblance with the soft glow of the English countryside but with a hydration boost to boot. Wear alone or layer over a lip colour to make it last the distance. My little ones also loved this and being packed with natural ingredients it’s a safe alternative to a lipstick or sticky gloss they often want to buy – we fought over it ALOT!

I love the recyclable/compostable packaging- this is how all lip balms should be made – V cute! 100% recyclable, 100% compostable and no plastic used in their formulas. I’m a huge fan of waterless formulas that have such a high concentration of active ingredients – this pays off for product efficacy!

This was a light, fruity balm with a nice slick application that had no drag or pull. It left a lovely shine on the lips with the tiniest hint of a pink tint. Its short ingredient list is packed with oils and waxes that moisturise and keep the balm from slipping off too quickly. Overall it was a really nice balm for everyday use.

The breadth of the initiatives that they are involved in or have donated to is impressive for a small brand. They also have 100% biodegradable and recyclable packaging and don’t use plastics. They also aim to use only natural ingredients and not source from countries where child labour is an issue.
