Beauty treat: the SOS skin multitasker

26 March 2009

Oh. My. God. I've been searching for the perfect lip balm for 10 years and I've finally found it. Made from Papaw fruit – used in the Australian outback for its healing properties – Lucas Papaw Ointment, £4, has just landed on British shores at It gives amazing shine (so much so, I've ditched my lip gloss) and keeps lips moisturised for hours, leaving them looking 10 years younger! Yes, really. And if that weren't enough, it doubles up as an SOS cream on burns and dry patches, as well as serving as a great brow gel to set arches. All this for £4. It's official – I'm in love!
