There are a few rituals I do every day. Some basic, some extra and some odd. There are even some rituals I have no issue with leaving some days, such as not making the bed first thing in the morning. Other ritual such as brushing my teeth are an absolute must. Applying a lip balm before bed is one of these such rituals.
The act of applying a rich balm to soothe and moisturise has an almost calming affect on me. It means bed time. It means no more fighting. It means hearing gentle snoring from my babies in the other rooms. It means one less thing to wake me up at night (because irritated lips do wake me). However it does need to be the “right” balm.
I love EOS, but the bloody thing is always rolling off the bed/end table. Carmex seems to rip the side of my lips, almost as if I had a cold sore, and almost every other balm rips my lips to shreds causing further irritation (brand names redacted). However, Wonder balm from Beauty Kitchen seems to be just right.
Beauty Kitchen’s Wonder Balm
, £3.99, is a a rich balm created from 100% natural ingredients, such as cocoa butter, vegan friendly and fragrance free. Additionally, it is free from synthetic fragrance, sulphites, and parabens, making it “absolutely lip lickingly wonderful”.
Housed in a sliding tin, the rich Wonder Balm is a solid and thick (understatement), of a balm that melts yet grabs on to the lips without slipping, and can last through the night. In the morning, my lips are soothed, moisturised, and remarkably still lavished with the wonder balm.
While I love a good balm, I do not often toot their horn, but the Beauty Kitchen Wonder Balm? It is truly a remarkable item and with it, my nightly ritual has increased from basic, to nightly pamper.
