Well, this is unexpected! Lyspyl’s reinvention of the lip balm by adding a mirror and making it a complete balm compact is really a touch of genius for a high street brand. Everything is done right – from the bright and sturdy packaging to the scents (mandarin, orange blossom, vanilla and original) and the little mirror inserted into the lid.
They actually came out in March but it’s the first time I’ve seen them (tsk) and I’m thinking they should appear in every single stocking in the land! There’s so much about the design that I love – the balms are cased in a kind of rounded, thick plastic that looks chunky and cool although I suppose it’s to protect the mirror more than anything, and the whole thing seems like such an upgrade to a stick balm although I don’t think the formula (shea, aloe, vitamin E and yes, mineral oils) is changed. Whoever had this idea needs some kind of sparkly crown :-). You can find the balms HERE.
