  • Highlighter: Dab a tiny bit on your cheekbones for a subtle, dewy glow.
  • Soothe Minor Burns: Use it on small burns for immediate relief.

Remember, lip balm isn't a substitute for specialized products in many of these cases, but it can serve as a temporary or emergency solution when needed.

Oriwa Naturals has two natural Lip Balms, one with Kawakawa for extra healing, which has a touch of peppermint, and other one just plain.  Both are excellent for moisturising and can be used for all of the above.
