Tag: lip balm review
The thing with cult beauty products is that sometimes I don’t want them because everyone else already owns them.That may sound stupid to some of you, but that’s how things are for me.
This is why I’ve bought the famous NUXE Reve de Miel Baume Levres Ultra-Nourrissant Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm only this month, I know.
Yes, of course, I had to take a photo with a peony, I am obsessed.
And, it is an instant love. Luckily, right now my lips are in a good condition, so I can’t report how this balm deals with winter-cracked lips. But I’m really pleased with the effect I get now. The formula is rich and nourishing, but I don’t find it to be greasy or oily, plus it doesn’t just sit on top of the surface, it does it job properly, leaving the lips feeling smoother and softer.
I love applying the balm before
Although, I think, my favourite lip balms are liquid, like this Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Elixir which I adore, I still like a good ol’ lip balm.
But it has to be very soft and moisturizing, I hate dry and hard lip balms! When I think of a good one, Fresh Sugar comes to mind, as it is soft, as butter!
And today I want to tell you about L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm. And it is actually a nice one. I have been carrying (and using, obviously) it in my bag for several weeks now.
Luckily, my lips are in a (relatively, they are still dry) good condition now, so I can’t report on how it deals with the cracks/very dried out lips.
But I can definitely see that
Today I want to show you two lip products from Burt’s Bees: Super Shiny Lip Gloss in Zesty Red and Lip Balm in Pomegranate.
I think that their lip balms are already a cult product as so many people love them. I like mine, too. And as you can see, I always take mine with me so everything rubbed off (so I’ve also included a promo picture below).
The pomegranate lip balm makes my lips soft and moisturized, and works brilliant for the cold weather as it is easy to use and it’s not sticky. It also contains: açaí berry,vitamins A, C, D and E and healthy Omega oils which is great. The balm doesn’t really give any colour and you can use it on the go.
As for the Lip Gloss, it is a lovely product for those who want a benefit of a natural lip balm combined with some subtle colour.
I would not recommend applying it without a mirror as you may make a mess (or I manage to).
My lips are very dry and in winter they are usually in horrible condition as I sometimes forget to put the lip balm on and even if I do, sometimes it is not effective enough.
It was my Birthday on the 6th of March and I really wanted to wear a dark matte lipstick which is a disaster when your lips are not in perfect condition, as you can imagine.
This is why I was excited to try Kiss Elixir lip balm by Rouge Bunny Rouge.
To tell the truth I wasn’t expecting any miracles. But I was more than happy to see one! My dry, chapped and sometimes even bleeding lips became smooth, soft and, well, perfect. I could not believe my eyes. I could apply the dark matte lipstick and it look great, can you imagine?
How does it work?
