We’ve been warned enough times to know that facing the sun sans savvy SPF is probably a bit silly (read: equates to morphing into a lobster). Well, the same applies to our lips – that’s why we’re providing cover for our kissers via a UVA-deflecting duo, and rounding things off with a nifty botanical balm to indulge in on the daily.

By Terry – Baume De Rose
It’s no secret that #TeamBecause are fervent fans of Terry de Gunzburg’s By Terry range – and this velvet-to-touch Baume De Rose lip saviour proves exactly why. Humectant shea butter, rose flower essential wax, and powerful antioxidant Vitamin E will render lips luscious with a non-sticky sheen, while SPF15 acts as an invisible veil against the 
sun’s harsh rays as well as daily environmental aggressors. Reapply as you please – and layer it up overnight to enhance your beauty sleep.

Marc Jacobs Beauty – Lip Lock Moisture Balm SPF15
A primer for the perfect pout, Marc Jacobs Beauty’s translucent minty fresh Lip Lock Moisture Balm works as both a base before a lick of lipstick and a butter-y balm to repair and sooth cracked skin with SPF15 protection. As per that
sell-out Coconut Collection, this pocket miracle is blended with a natural medley of andiroba, buriti, shea and avocado oil, meaning you’ll have ‘em lining up for a kiss in no time

Le Labo – 
Lip Balm
Consider Le Labo’s raw botanical jojoba seeds, olive oil and shea butter Lip Balm an act of self-care in the bustle of the everyday, and a smooth-as-silk reminder to be present in the moment. Staying true to the brand’s ethos of less-is-more with a list of free-from ingredients the length of our arm, this pared-back and gloss-free formula simply softens and conditions for an au naturale look.
