Lip balm from Antipodes

I forgot to mention in my post of many new products, but New Zealand brand Antipodes has added a lip balm to their range of products, $14.50 for 4.5g. It contains some nice moisturising ingredients such as jojoba oil, shea butter, olive oil, and cocoa butter, and most of the ingredients are certified organic by Asurequality.

I bought it last night; it’s nice and moisturising, and it smells divine!
