The one!

If I turned up to work with a full face of make-up on I’d look ridicu­lous – I’m usu­ally in the kitchen for about 12 hours a day, six days a week, man­ag­ing 59 peo­ple and, as you can imag­ine, an­swer­ing 59 ques­tions from each of them all day long. My hair is bunched up on top of my head, I wear gi­nor­mous py­jama-style checked trousers and a great big chef ’s jacket. Mov­ing from burn­ing ovens to icy cold fridges in a hec­tic kitchen def­i­nitely plays havoc with my skin, but it was some­how my lips that were feel­ing the brunt of it; they were con­stantly dry and sore.

It was my daugh­ter who first in­tro­duced me to this ter­rific rose-scented lip balm. Packed with vi­ta­min E, shea but­ter and other skin-feed­ing in­gre­di­ents, it seems to act al­most like a bar­rier cream, work­ing se­ri­ously hard to nour­ish and pro­tect my lips – all while smelling di­vine. I first started us­ing it when it launched as a clear balm, but now I’m a fan of the red shade. It adds a lit­tle flush of sheer colour to my face – and, in­ci­den­tally, gives me a lot more con­fi­dence. I have dab­bled with other things, but this is the one that has with­stood the test of time and will al­ways sit in my chef trouser pocket.
