The £3 soothing lip balm that tops the Amazon bestseller list

If the recent spate of cold weather is leaving your skin more flaky and dry than soft and smooth, we may just have the solution.

When the cold weather hits, it's always the lips that seem to be instantly affected, with this sensitive area becoming dry and chapped at the first sign of frost.
