It is National Lipstick Day and what better product for your lips than the Albus and Flora lip care products.
This fab brand is all about making lip care beautiful, so what you get is effective hydration and SPF30 broad-spectrum UV protection. Yes, lips really do need that protection. They’re vulnerable to UV just like the rest of the face, and even those of us who wear sunscreen regularly don’t always put it on our lips, so this is an easy way to do it.
These are not your average lip balm – they’re more like cosmeceuticals for your lips. Lots of hydrating omega oils, nourishing botanical extracts to stimulate cell renewal and support skin barrier function so your lips don’t dry out and emollient waxes to hold that hydration in place. They melt right into your lips and feel smooth and light to wear. They’re also cleverly formulated too, so you can use them as a protective layer like a smoothing primer underneath your lipstick, or on top of a lip stain.
Available in five fab shades, from plain (Naked Flora) through sheer tints (Nude Flora, Mountain Rose, Sheer Flora and the brighter red Snowberry Red), these tints are really light, adding a lovely sheen of colour. I absolutely love them.
