Meet the ultimate multitasker. This healing lip balm can also be used as a lip primer, cheek shiner, eyebrow shaper, to soothe dry skin, eliminate split ends, moisturise eyelashes, and soothe itchy patches and eczema. An all-round handbag essential.
“This balm has been a life saver. I use this every evening on my lips and have had hardly any dry skin for weeks. You only need a little bit so a little goes a long long way. It’s super hydrating and it really helps with dry skin on other parts on the body. I’ve been using it on my cuticles from excessive hand washing and it’s been a life saver.” – crystalwitch_x

“If there was a nobel prize for skin care, the Liquid Gold would get it. I have problems with closed comedons/bumpy skind without inflammation. Does not hurt but surely isn’t very beautiful to the eye. Tried a lot but nothng brought satisfying results. I used the Liquid Gold three times now and my face is super soft and almost completely smooth.” – Lotta
