We might have had a last minute heat wave, but everyone knows that a multi-purpose balm is a winter handbag essential – if it isn’t the wind whipping your cheeks into some kinda chapped hell, then it’s your lips succumbing to the central heating/cold weather combination and shrivelling in front of your very eyes.

I love this little balm from Jurlique that smells gently of roses (and not, thank god, vanilla). It’s a limited edition and contains soothing botanicals such as chamomile, calendula, marshmallow, rose gallica, daisy, sweet violet and pansy all grown at Jurlique’s biodynamic farm in South Australia. It’s free of nasties – no SLS, SLES, Parabens, artificial colours etc, and uses a base of natural oils including soybean and avocado. It’s no-fuss but power-packed and is perfect for emergency moisturising just about anywhere on the body. £10 from November.
