Over the last few years, collecting lip balms has become one of my hobbies because of the way they look, they taste and they feel! - Scarlett Ashley Cheng

The collection started with Scarlett's first ever lip balm, which her grandmother bought for her. 

"It all started with having dry lips when I was little," Scarlett said. 

"My parents and my grandma used to put lip balms on my lips everyday to keep them moist.

"At first, they were just plain without any flavours when I was very young, and as I grew older, I started to try out different flavours."

Scarlett believes that saving beautiful things is a habit that will bring her "joy and fun". 

Apart from collections, Scarlett and her sister Kaylyn also like to DIY organic lip balms by themselves at home and often gift them to family members and friends.
