We love multi-tasking here at Stylist, so when we came across these adorable lip-balms-cum-accessories from natural beauty connoisseur Andrea Garland, we just had to share them with you.
Each pretty piece appears to be a vintage style piece of jewellery – but pop open the secret compartment, and inside you’ll find a small pot of 100% natural and handmade lip balm. It brings to mind the glee we felt at discovering a key inside our Magic Steps School Shoes (remember those?). Made from organic beeswax, softening shea butter, sun protecting Red Raspberry Seed Oil, chapped-skin champion Benzoin, anti-bacterial Grapefruit and healing Lavender, the lip balm also tastes as good as it looks.
ABOVE: Archimedes Brooch, £29.50; Le Renarde Ring, £34.00
BELOW: Shelley Necklace, £29.50; Molly Necklace, £28.00; Silkie Brooch, £26.00.
Whilst we're rather tempted to add all five to our jewellery box/dressing table, we're particularly partial to the mirrored Molly Necklace (an homage to our favourite eighties teen star, Molly Ringwald), and gold Le Renarde cocktail ring.
