Lovely Little Things: XO Balm

Born out of necessity when her bf decided to grow a beard, XO Balm’s dry-skin-suffering inventor needed a wonder product that would help with the resulting stubble rash. Magically, the balm also works as a hand cream, lip balm, makeup primer – even on split ends.

If you suffer from eczema you’ll find this balm a godsend; the blend of beeswax and oils clings to the skin for longer than most topical products so that the nutrients and moisture are absorbed by the skin for longer.

Personally, I love the dinky little tin it comes in – complete with a mirror and a handy scoop – which looks super chic in your changing bag.
