My addiction to lip products was always going to be fed in Japan, Having discovered some brilliant balms purely by trial and error (due to minimal English on the packaging) in Hong Kong the year before I knew I was in for a treat in Tokyo.
This product instantly caught my eye because of its adorable name 'MuruMuruButterMu' and the balm itself doesn't disappoint. A yummy mixture of cocoa butter, vanilla and moisturizing properties thanks to what I'm guessing is a beeswax base. Delicious. Although, I assume sadly this product is pretty hard to come by outside of Japan (please correct me if you know otherwise).

So here is my absolute favorite Lip treatment after trying out what I believe to be hundreds. Created by French Make up artist and skin care Queen Terry de Gunzburg. It is definitely on the pricey side but is worth every penny. Giving a Luxurious creamy pink sheen to the lips, totally eliminating the need for a gloss, and with a light rose scent it has most certainly kept my lips soft and smooth through the really cold winter months. It is absolutely one of those make up bag must haves. Go on treat yourself you won't regret it I promise.
