Currrently loving: Trish McEvoy Lush Moisture Balm SPF15

I completely forgot to include this in my July Favourites – this is probably because it has barely been out of my handbag since I was sent it. It really is a does-everything product – perfect for keeping lips soft but I have also used it as an over night under eye cream and cuticle moisturiser – containing avocado and jojoba seed oils. Using this to sort my parched cuticles is probably  my number one use for this little odd-shaped stick. The thin wide shape makes it easy to use in all the ways I mentioned (especially under the eyes) plus many more – I used it as emergency hand cream for my dry hands too.

The packaging is fairly non-descript, with a simple dial that pushes the balm up. The lid is very secure though – so even when loose in my handbag it didn’t come off (a pet hate of mine when it’s happened and ruined other products by letting them get covered in handbag lint).

This balm costs £21, which isn’t cheap – but I have been using it for a couple of months and barely made a dent in it, so assuming it doesn’t go off before I use it up then it will last ages.
