My New Beauty Essential

A little while ago I won a Figs and Rouge giveaway from one of my favourite style blogs The Raspberry Branch! I was kindly sent two multipurpose balms, Aloe & Mint and Wild Cherry with Sweet Orange, in the most beautiful little tins. The minute I saw the packaging I was sold already! What makes Figs and Rouge balms even more unique is the fact they are 100% organic, completely free from any harmful chemicals or synthetic ingredients.

Aloe & Mint has a very smooth, solid and slightly dryer texture than Wild Cherry meaning it would probably last longer as less is needed each time you use it! I would use this for when I need some lip therapy as its brilliant for protecting and soothing dry, irritated and sore lips.

Wild Cherry is my favourite of the two! I was surprised at first by its grainy texture but it immediately dissolves into a smooth balm once its on your lips! Thanks to its incredible smell its also a great on-the-go perfume (I use it this way by rubbing a small amount into my wrists) and can be used for dry skin anywhere from your hands to your face!

I've been carrying the gorgeous Wild Cherry with me everywhere since I received them, although it hasn't fully replaced my love for Creme Brulee Vaseline which still has a space in my make up bag!
