The Picture of Dorian Bay Lip Balm
A deceptively light-hearted blend of rose and bergamot with a hint of bay
The story: An exquisite scent inspired by Oscar Wilde's dark and fantastical tale about a man obsessed with his own beauty. An alluring scent of rose geranium and citrus hides a hint of enigmatic spice in its depth.
The product: A moisturising lip balm made with organic shea butter and pure essential oils. The pretty pink colour comes from beetroot powder and appears transparent on the lips.

This was a gift I wasn't expecting to receive and I was SO HAPPY. You can feel the quality of all the ingredients :)
This balm is so lovely! It definitely has a very floral scent that's instantly calming. Moistures the lips very well and I don't have to reapply it as often as my shop bought ones, which is a testament to its quality! I love the black tin as well because it matches the aesthetic of the book!
