Winter Lip Savers !!!!!
So it's officially freezing here in jersey, and I absolutely hate winter and what it does to my skin. I've been slathered on lotion and face cream and lip balm like crazy in the past two months !!!!!! My skin gets do dry but not as bad as my lip. I swear in the past two months I've tried every lip balm there is in Target (-_-) and Walmart, and Sephora.!!! My lip are like a desert island in the mid of summer. So dry, crack and peel like crazy. I am very OCD about my lip not being soft and smooth, like I refuse to do anything before I can get all those skin that are peeling off my lip off my lip ?? I am very particular about my lip products. I f it has glitters or sparkles or anything grainy in texture to it, I will go far far away from them. I know a lo of people don't mind it, but definitely not me. A few months back I got my hand on Sara Happ Lip slip, And I absolutely loves it. I tried her lip scrub too and it was also oh-so-fabulous// First of all, I'm a sucker for cute packaging, and this caught my eyes the moment I saw it. It come in a cute little gold box with a bow on it. I mean how can you not get a balm with a BOW on it.... soo adorable. When I open the jar there was a pinky balm with lots of sparkles staring right at me and I though Oh, it has a sparkles in it, will it be gritty in texture?? I was horrified....but a girl got to do what a girl got to do. So I wash my hand and dip my finger in the balm and to my surprised.... it was a soft, creamy balm. I thought it was gonna be hard in texture like many of lip balm in a pots and jars. Like imagine MAC tinted Lip cond. or Smith Rosebud salve.. I was expecting something like that. But noo this was so soft and creamy.. like how to I explain it.. you know how when you dip your finger in a tub of vaseline.. it was even MORE soft and creamy than that... wayyy more.. almost like a very thick body cream that kind of texture. So I went ahead and spread it all over my lip, and it was so smoothhhhhh. No gritty or grainy texture at all.. a tad sticky like a lip gloss as well. It has a slight sheen to it so you can wear it as a lip gloss as well. The staying power of this is above and beyond. It will last me through my morning coffee and lunch.. and beyond. It last so long and it keep my lip nice and soft throughout the day. Despite the $25.00 price tag. I would buy this again and again.
Another one of my favourites lip balm of all time is this Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
It has the most amazing smell, it like sweet lemony scented. And again the screw cap ensure that it will never fall out in my purse which is a plus<-_-> I use this everyday, and I have to stop myself from reaching for this every couple hours or so. This as I already mention has the most incredible smell, and the fact that they come in a swival tube makes it a breeze to apply in a hurry. Be careful though, twisted up gently, since the balm itself is soooo soft and creamy, if you're not careful you can easily break them in just a simple twist..Do not put these cuties in your pocket or leave them in your car in the summer cuz it will melt like crazy in a flash. I used up this lip balm very very quickly. I think it's because the texture is so soft that it so easy to over apply them, sometimes I purposely ovet apply them cuz they're such a indulgence. I loves everything about this balm, the packaging, the smell, the spf, the fact that it has no color, did I mention the scent??? The only thing I'm not crazy about is the price tag, This will set you back $24.00 or so.. That's why I have to fight the urge to apply this very often. Foe the sake of my skinny limpy wallet....
