If you've neglected your lips and they need a bit of extra love and attention, soothe them with this organic butter and avocado oil balm. It makes a real difference to dry lips and the peppermint aftertaste also gives you a satisfying tingly feeling, but unfortunately it also leaves a rather girly glossy look.

The generous portion of shea butter in it should make it feel smooth, so it's odd that it drags a bit on your lips at first. Gradually, however, it settles in to moisturise them. Another thing to be aware of before choosing this balm is that it pongs of marzipan so only use it if you don't mind smelling like a sweet shop.

BEST IN TEST
We blokes should be more worried about preventing physical damage to our word formers than giving them a sparkly lushness. This Nivea balm is the most butch product here – it's scent-free and has a matt appearance. More importantly, however, is the fact that it moisturises thoroughly and lasts for hours.

The peachy colour and the faint whiff of antiseptic cream get this classic lip care stick off to a shaky start. But the simple formula of vitamins, wax and sunscreen do a solid job of repairing and protecting your lips.
