Marcheline's Beauty Tips: Episode 43
Even Lady Sybil Crawley of Downton Abbey needs help keeping her luscious lips supple during the cruel month of February, so I feel no shame in admitting that my own were brutally chapped after shoveling snow today.
The thought of slathering on regular tube lip balm did not appeal, as it's too thick and my lips were really sore, so instead I slipped a fingertip into my Pond's cold cream jar and ran it round my pie hole.
Like magic, the stuff soaked right in and left my lips as soft as a baby's, without any greasy residue. And I've always loved the way cold cream smells, so there it was right under my nose where I could best enjoy it.
One of the main ingredients of cold cream is bee's wax, and we all know what a great natural beauty product that is... so I shouldn't have been at all surprised to find that cold cream makes a fab winter lip saver!
