Review: Erborian Doudoune for Lips
Created to repair and soothe simultaneously, Erborian Doudoune for Lips ($29) is the perfect rich melting balm to keep your lips moisturised.
True to what its description claims, the balm did not have to be re-applied often when I used it. With just a single application, my chapped lips felt nou-rished and smooth to the touch, allowing my lipstick to glide on easily after.
Its handy size also makes it convenient enough for travelling as well as for touch-ing up on the go.
Available at Sephora from Apr 14.

The metal nib provided an enjoyable cooling effect and while there were no noticeable changes overnight, the product relieved my puffy eyes after a few days of usage.
Available at Sephora from May.
