Dry Lips?? I Don’t Know Her!
This is my holy grail lip product! This can cure even the most chapped lips in a single night or a couple of hours! All the flavors are wonderful and the consistency isn’t too sticky! The price is great especially because the amount of product lasts a long time! This could easily be used as a daily chapstick because it is light enough, however I tend to stick to nighly use! LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
Used this for 2 years...and it’s a yes from me!
Hey you guys! I’m Louisa and I’m here to share with you my verdict on HIGHLY RATED products! The product that I’m reviewing today is... LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask My skin type: dry, blackheads on my nose, freckles from the sun Pros: - has beta-glucan (very moisturizing and keeps your lips soft all night) -has vitamin c (brightens your skin and has anti aging benefits) -applies amazingly (feels buttery soft and melts right into your lips) -berry scent smells good and yummy Cons: -pricy ($25CAD for a lip mask is more expensive than I’d like) -has fragrance (might not be best for sensitive skin) Overall, 4/5! It’s a great product that I look forward to using every night bc it moisturizes my lips amazingly! I usually review my empties but today is an exception. I think I might as well pass down this lip mask to my grandchildren because I’ve been using this for 2 years and I’ve barely made a dent! I will be definitely be repurchasing this again...maybe I’ll have some time to run to Sephora after I drop off my grandchildren at school 😁 Coming up: Innisfree My Real squeeze mask (Follow so you won’t miss out!)

Makeup Must-Haves for Glowy Summer Skin✨
I think we can all agree that in the summer we love a glowy, no-makeup-makeup-look right?! Or at least that’s what I’ve been going for lately! These are the products I’ve been reaching for the most to achieve that look👇🏻 • PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer - it smells soooo good and gives a natural glowy finish to the skin (no chunky glitter). This one is super affordable (drugstore) and wears like it’s much more expensive! • Haleys Beauty RE:PLAY Foundation + Contour Sticks (I have shades 2.15 + 4.25) - these are sooo good! They are creamy, blendable, and buildable. I use them as if I were contouring + highlighting my face and the look I get in the end is so beautiful and natural. I am also OBSESSED with their RE:INVENT BB Drops - they are a must have when it comes to glowy summer skin also! • Haleys Beauty RE:COVER Pressed Powder (I have shade 2.25) - this is a full-coverage powder foundation and it does an amazing job at covering my redness and blemishes without looking cakey or powdery. I love to use this with just a bit of concealer under my eyes and then this all over the face - it has such a beautiful finish. • ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara - this quickly became a favourite of mine thanks to its double-sided brush + super black formula. I love that this is a clean alternative and it wears really well. The brush as one side where the bristles are super close together so it’s perfect to get every little lash as well as your bottom lashes; then the other side is perfect for building some volume! • fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 - I have a few shades of this one but my favourite is the Honey. It’s that “my lips but better” shade and I find it to be the perfect combo of colour + treatment. I love using a tinted lip balm rather than a gloss or lipstick when I’m going for a natural look and these are perfect for that. That’s it that’s all, hope you enjoyed reading about some of my current summer must have makeup products!🤗
Fresh Sugar Honey Lip Balm
fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 The Fresh Honey Lip Balm is described as a sheer warm nude and is exactly that. Keeps my lips moisturized and is the only nude color that doesn’t make me look like I have concealer lips. I’ve used a bunch of other shades in this line too and my favorites are the Rose tinted balm and Icon tinted balm. I’m more of a red/maroon/berry lip person so I’m glad I found this one for a bit of a switch. fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15

AÇAÍ & MANGO SUGAR LIP SCRUB
Herbal Dynamics Beauty - ACAI & MANGO SUGAR LIP SCRUB Product Claim: hydrates and plumps lips Texture: sugary Key Ingredients: Acai oil, mango butter, cocoa butter, macadamia oil, pistachio oil, vitamin e Price: $22 My Experience: I want to start off by saying this lip exfoliator is not like a normal lip exfoliant. Firstly, it smells divine😍 It applies so smoothly and isn’t chunky. I use this on a weekly basis, and I don’t plan to stop any time soon 💋 This exfoliator is so different from all the others because how it leaves my lips super moisturized! The various oils and butters in this exfoliant leave my lip feeling silky smooth! This scrub is very nourishing and gentle. Would I recommend?! YES! This scrub will leave you feeling pouty all day long .. It retails for $22 for 15 mL and a little goes a long way! This does contain oils derived from NUTS which many people are allergic to so something to look out for!
Herbal Dynamics Acai Mango Sugar Scrub
This lip scrub is formulated with nourishing shea, cocoa and mango butters with exotic oils to soften as sugar provides gentle exfoliation, leaving lips plump, smooth and soft. As seen, it has a rough texture and the sugar granules are quite big but I do find that that helps with exfoliating. Overall, the product does its job as a lip scrub and has a nice scent to accompany it. I would recommend this to others because overall it is a nice product. However, I do feel that you can make do with any other lip scrub on the marketHerbal Dynamics Beauty - ACAI & MANGO SUGAR LIP SCRUB

I have way too many samples... I’ll start with the ones I can truly give a solid review on because I’ve tried them several times, but we’ll get through them all together eventually🥰 Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream This cream has a great complex of ceramides, & helped my friends dry skin patches from psoriasis... but the very strong herbal smell I think from the sage oil is way too much for me. I can’t use it because I get nauseous. PEACH & LILY - Matcha Pudding Antioxidant Cream Didn’t like this personally... I really wanted it to smell like matcha 🍵it’s one of my favorite scents, but this smells very citrusy & turns into a kinda yucky dirt smell... Texture is very nice but it kind of made burning/itching sensations. DIOR - Capture Dreamskin Care & Perfect One of Dior’s more expensive products, & it sucks. Smells like old lady lotion in the worst of ways & is basically a very greasy primer with a bit of peachy shimmer in it. I had a lot of these at one point, tried to find a use—-Major pass. IGK - Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm 🥥I love this! Great texture, a completely non-greasy, lightweight, matte gel that doesn’t weigh down my hair at all. It slicked down flyaways & broken hairs by my part really well & gave subtle natural definition to my waves. I would definitely consider buying the full size, it’s vegan, cruelty free, gluten free & free of petroleum products, sulfates & parabens. Great light scent that’s hard to put my finger on but reminds of a fancy salon. Milk MAKEUP - Sunshine Oil This was very thin, runny & hard to control. It has a very simple natural ingredients list, with grape seed & avocado oils as the first 2 ingredients, but It’s also full of citrus oils like grapefruit peel, tangerine peel, mandarin peel & lemon peel oil. There’s not much else in it, & it really irritated my skin unfortunately. Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment This lactic acid & papaya enzyme based exfoliating treatment creates nice temporary results for me. My skin is very smooth after & with no redness, however, even after layers of hydration my skin is still so dry. I can see my skin drink up my essence & serum like never before & I struggle to get hydration back. I checked the ingredients & it has denatured alcohol! Yikes🧐 BITE - Agave+ Weekly Vegan Lip Scrub A great natural lip scrub. It smells wonderful like something caramelized & delicious. But I’d prefer a bit more exfoliant. MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow shade: M56 This is waterproof af, check my swatches. Blended nicely but do it fast lol, dries to a powdery finish. This would probably make great eyeliner if you’re steady with a brush! 💕Kehlani looks stunning! ANNA SUI - Fantasia Mermaid Eau de Toilette Smells like Christmas time at stores? I like it😂
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Scrub
This is a new addition to my skincare products. I’ve been looking for a good lip scrub for so long! I have loved this brand for a while so I decided to give this one a try. First off, I love the scent/taste of this. It’s very brown sugar and sweet smelling. It’s not overly rough like other scrubs I’ve tried before. I can notice an immediate difference after rinsing this off my lips, they instantly feel smoother and more hydrated. I’m very happy I took a chance on this product. A little goes a long way! Definitely recommend!BITE - Agave+ Weekly Vegan Lip Scrub

Good for everyday
I have the ultra beauty juice Infused lip oil in tangerine (I think) and I like it a lot. It lasts pretty long and looks amazing. It also hydrates. 🍊🧡ULTA BEAUTY - Juice Infused Lip Oil
How to get natural plump and glossy lips 💋
Again, I first saw this product on TikTok! It was sold out at Ulta for the longest time, but I recently got my hands on it!! I opted for the peach scent. I love this as a gloss because it is not sticky at all, yet leaves my lips looking SO glossy and plump!! I hate lip plumpers because of how much they burn, and this gives me that lip plumper appearance without actually making them swell! The smell is a little strong and artificial. It can sometimes accentuate any dry patches on your lips, so be sure and exfoliate them beforehand! #CheriePartner

This lip cream is soooo healing!🤩 Amazing Lip Product I have ever used!👍👍👍
The endurance that your lip fights environmental intrusion is the weakest in whole-body skin. The skin on the lip that ages most easily is bare all the time, and suffer environmental damage easily, therefore water and moisture is the key lesson to protect your lip. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Lip Balm Kiehl's Lip Balm 1 Classic is a very classic product of Kiehl's, the public opinion of it has actually been quite good since the lip balm can play a very good protective effect. This is a product having multiple effects because of its ingredients. There are three kinds of moisturizing ingredients, namely tocopherol, 1 2-glutaryl alcohol, and lanolin; three kinds of antioxidant ingredients, namely tocopherol, Curacao aloe leaf extract, and pentaerythritol tetraester; and the active ingredients include squalene, pentaerythritol tetraoleate, and other six ingredients; the soothing ingredient includes allantoin. This product really doesn’t have a smell or a flavor, and it's not as thick as petroleum-based products. I have tried so many different types of lip balms and this beats everyone out there. Because it solved my problem of a lifetime of chapped lips! It keeps my lips moisturized for a long time in the winter and isn't too heavy for summer. If you massage it into your lips, it stays for a few hours. It is not glossy if it is massaged in. I also use it on top of my lipstick for a glossy look! I ever used DHC lip cream, when I first try it, the moisture doesn't seem to last and it's a little grainy feeling and not smooth like I had hoped. Besides, it was okay for the first few days, but after about a week of using it, my lips developed a swollen, puffy red rash. I stopped using it for one day and it immediately began to heal. So I no longer dare to use it. I love KiehI's lip care, I believe it's a kind of fragrance-free, preservative-free, risk-free product, based on my own experience.
💻 my workday essentials 💻
Being at a desk all day can be a real drain on our bodies for so many reasons. We all know sitting for long periods of time is bad for health, but air conditioned office environments can also be extremely drying and hard on our skin. In addition to starting my day off with a hydrating routine, there are a few things I keep at my desk to keep myself refreshed and pampered all day long. 1) Face mist Face mists are the perfect mid-day pick me up. They’re a great way to keep your face hydrated and when I use a face mist I really feel like I’m taking care of myself. So many of them are packed with hydrating ingredients that it’s almost a whole mini skin care routine in itself! 2) Hand Cream I love a good hand cream all the time, but especially these days while we’re washing our hands and sanitizing SO often. I prefer hand creams that are really thick and take a minute or so to sink in...i mean you have to take a break from typing for that right? 3) Lip Balm I use lip balm liberally all. day. long. Hydrated lips make me feel instantly healthier and like my whole body is hydrated! I keep one with me absolutely everywhere I go. In addition to these three essentials, I always have a water bottle on hand because all this external hydration would be wasted if I weren’t also hydrating internally!! I also keep a mini spf at my desk to make reapplying throughout the day easy, especially right before I begin my commute home. How do you practice self-care at your desk or on the go?!

Just as it is important to hydrate and treat your face and body, the same goes for your lips. I suffered from dry peeling lips for so long, that often cracked/blistered in the corners. Which led me to using lip scrubs, which temporarily helped. The day of use and the day after my lips would be nice and soft and then straight back to dry and peeling. I have finally found 4 products that have changed my life! Each night after my face routine is complete (make sure to wash your hands before touching your lips!) I use a drop of fresh - Sugar Wonder Drops Lip Primer on my lips. One drop is all you need! Its more than enough to use all over. It helps make your lips soft and smooth. A great base for lipsticks also! I then alternate between fresh - Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm, Watermelon (mine is coconut) and LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask which helps lock in hydration overnight. I wake up with the softest lips! Because I have been doing this for about a month now, I am finding I don’t need to use lip balm during the day (or constantly reapplying it). However, since it is part of my morning routine, as my last step I use fresh - Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 this leaves a nice rosy tint, giving a bit of colour to the lips. And is great for keeping lips hydrated throughout the day. Again, I rarely have to reapply, and because of “mum brain” if I forget to use this I don’t notice as my lips are still hydrated from my PM treatment. It also has SPF ! A great bonus. I wish I had taken before pics to compare with how my lips look now. I have been blister free for a month and I couldn’t be happier! I hope this helps you in your journey of luscious lips 💋
Forgot you had a Zoom meeting? Read this NOW!
We all know that moment when we are checking our emails and then we get the last minute notification of a Zoom meeting in 30 mins or worse you forgot that you had a meeting and aren’t ready 😱! There have been times when I come home and have less than an hour to shower, get dressed, and do my makeup! I am free to tell you a step by step quick guide to my version of an easy video call makeup look! This is my guide, with the hope that it helps you out too if you have similar items in your beauty collection! First things first the eyebrows! Sculpted brows make you look put together! I use both benefit - Ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush in shade 3.5/4 and ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz in shade chocolate. I have brunette hair and make sure to match my brows with medium brown eyebrow products. The eyebrow gel is a mini version and retails for $14.00 and the ABH pencil is $23.00. Both can be found at either Ulta or Sephora. I use the gel first to outline my natural eye brow shape and then fill in the sparse areas with the pencil! Depending on time, I will occasionally use a setting gel over the final brow look! Next, I use the tarte - Tartelette Flirt Eyeshadow Palette (bottom left shade) over my crease to get a quick but slightly defined eye look! This pallet is $19.00 and has lasted me a very long time for a mjni pallet! Then I use the Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow in shade Globe ($28.00) over the entire lid! It truly does try in 10 seconds, which is perfect when you have limited time. Sometimes when I use eyeshadows, I have to go back and clean the fall out. Not here, not today! The next step is the signature cat eye liner using tarte - Maneater Liquid Eyeliner . It’s by far one of the easiest liquid eyeliners to use! One swipe and bam you have your liner look! If you pay close attention you know I love my eyeliner and because I’ve been doing it for so long - I know what a good liner is! This is one I have recommended over and over again. The final part of the eye look is to apply the MARIE DALGAR - Marie Dalgar Fiber Mascara Set . This mascara is amazing and I am in love with the way my lashes look after I swipe two coats over each lash. The last step to the quickest makeup look ever is a swipe of fresh - Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 ! You get such a subtle lip look and it appears as if you didn’t spend hours trying to get ready for a meeting! Because this is supposed to be a quick video call look, I personally don’t use any concealer or tint on my face because I have fresh moisturizer on which gives me a natural dewy look! Final message! Remember it’s all about your confidence and how you present yourself to your coworkers and team! Well there you have it, lovies! This is my true quick video conference makeup look! #CheriePartner

Glowy 10 Minute Clean Makeup Lewkkk 😍
Morning friends! I’m the first one to admit I have 0 time essentially always so I love a good quick & clean makeup routine that gives me a glowy ‘your skin but better’ vibe. I will eventually get around to reviewing these separately so I’m just gonna do a quick lil blurb today. But if you have specific questions about anything just ask & I’ll do my best to give ya the info ☺️ 📍My Skin: combo/dry, light-med with neutral pinky undertones. I prefer makeup that keeps my skin looking like skin & loveeee a good glow ✨ The way I use these in order: ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 I thought it was going to be overhyped, but freaking love this. It’s serumy but not too thin and blends beautifully. I use shade 7- Diaz & mix it with a pump of the skincare diary - The Foundation Oil: Limited Edition to really get that glow & makeup that won’t ever settle into fine lines/pores. If you don’t know about Kate @the.skincare.diary on IG stop what you’re doing & look her up- this stuff is to die for. Kosas - The Sun Show Bronzer I use the lightest shade just on the high points of my face for a lil color. I don’t think there’s anything special about this bronzer but it’s clean, gets the job done & works beautifully on my eyes when I want a daily eyeshadow that makes my eyes pop. ILIA - Multi-Stick Cheek & Lip I use shade Dreamer, it a warm nude color I love for my skin tone on cheeks, nose & a bit on my forehead helps my eyes pop! The pigment of this is amazing, it’s super buildable , I just wish it lasted longer. I also love this on my eyes & lips. lilah b. - Glisten + Glow Skin Illuminator 100/10- i use b. enchanting. This little pod lasts forever because you only need a bit on your finger to glow to the high heavens. I likely won’t repurchase this or anything else from Lilah B. until they get their inclusivity together. so she’s on pause for now but this is still one of my favorite products, just think it’s worth mentioning that the brand has some work to do. thrive causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ already posted in this so I won’t say much except I promise this is the best mascara you will use ever in your life. ILIA - Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil top it all off with my new favorite lip gloss. Pictured is shade Tahiti (burnt coral) but I have no shame in saying I own every single color this comes in. It’s hydrating, it’s highly pigmented, it’s glowy & I love it. Sometimes I do set this all with ILIA - Soft Focus Finishing Powder I just did not in the photo. Talc-free & does the job with no photo flashback! Highly recommend switching to a talc-free powder friends- talc can contain cancer causing & other potentially harmful properties. Time yourself & see how quick you can be 🤪 #CheriePartner
My Voting Look. Please vote!
Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer like glue for your eyes. But a less creepy metaphor. COLOURPOP - Making Mauves Mauve Eyeshadow Palette I was incredibly impressed with both the intensity of color and the lack of fallout. It created a lot of eyeshadow dust but tapping off the excess and the primer kept the eyeshadow firmly in place. I just got this palette and I would have done different color combinations. Eh, that’s how you learn! WANDER BEAUTY - Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara NEVER LEAVE ME HG. UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation in White Pearl T1N. I think I finally found a) my color match and b) my HG foundation. There is no line where my product application stops and I have been wearing this comfortably for four hours. I keep forgetting that I haven’t washed it off yet. Best foundation on the market and at a reasonable price point. tarte - Shape Tape Concealer in 16N. PEACH & LILY - Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser broke me out so so badly that means that right now I need a little extra coverage. Still don’t love shape tape either Beauty Bakerie - Flour Setting Powder HG. Feels so soft and smooth. Lasts a long time. Works quickly and washes off easily. OFRA - #OFRAglow Signature Highlighting PaletteThe colors are gorgeous and smooth. Nicely pigmented and a wide range of colors. I used Blissful which gets four stars because application was somewhat difficult due to how small the amount of product was. Definitely glad I picked this up on sale because it was gorgeous on! ILIA - Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil in Tahiti. I meant to do Violet but grabbed the wrong one. I didn’t realize until I saw the pictures. So the look is a little kooky. This isn’t my favorite look but you only get one shot at a voting look in the 2020 general election! PS Please vote!

Versed Silk Slip Conditioning Lip Oil
VERSED - Silk Slip Conditioning Lip Oil This is my new favorite lip moisturizer! It goes on your lips as a oil, and then slightly dries more into a balm texture. I like the applicator on this product, it’s very easy to apply the oil onto your lips. It has no taste or scent, which I enjoy (nothing worst then bad tasting chapstick getting in your mouth). This lip oil has jojoba oil and vitamin E. This product retails for $9.99 at Target. 👉🏻I highly recommend this product, especially for fall/winter!!
The BEST of Versed Skincare
I first saw this brand at Target and was super excited to try some of the products. I was very surprised with quite a few of these products, but also disappointed with others. I’ll talk about the disappointing products in another post though. VERSED - PRESS RESTART This serum has a lightweight lotion feel to it which is great for most skin types. Those with oily skin may find that this product is too hydrating. This serum also works well with other products. -Contains a good amount of retinol along with bakuchiol which helps stabilize the formula and it has the same effects as retinol. -Fragrance-free. -The formula includes moisture-retaining sugars such as xylitol. -The formula also contains antioxidant plant extracts such as prickly pear, aloe, as well as sea buckthorn, rosehip oils, and shea butter. VERSED - FIND CLARITY Purifying Mask This mask has a creamy texture which is comfortable for all skin types. It is fragrance-free and unlike other clay masks, it is free of other irritants. -After rinsing, this product leaves skin smoother and softer. -Uses kaolin and bentonite clays to control shine absorb excess oil. VERSED - ON THE RISE FIRMING SERUM This is a lightweight serum that is suitable for all skin types and leaves a non-greasy finish. The formula also includes sodium hyaluronate for hydration. -Contains many antioxidants in the forms of vitamin C, E, and A. -Includes a very soothing combo of peptides that help to improve signs of sun damage and replenish the skin’s surface. VERSED - Silk Slip Conditioning Lip Oil This product is described as an oil but is a little thicker than that which helps it to stay on the lips. There is a noticeable shine after application, but nothing too dramatic. This lip oil is free of fragrance, flavor, or other irritating ingredients. -Includes a great amount of antioxidants such as non-fragrant jojoba, soybean, sesame, macadamia olive, and sunflower oils. -The formula also includes shea butter which is a good emollient. -All ingredients listed above contribute to hydrating and smoothing that help the appearance of healthy, plump lips. VERSED - THE FIX Emergency Eye Mask The texture of this product has a slightly thick gel consistency that applies easily. It dries somewhat quickly, but since it has a thick texture, it’s better to use at night. The gel has a cooling effect but this isn’t due to any potentially irritating, cooling ingredients like menthol. -Contains cucumber which is great for its hydrating and antioxidant abilities. -Includes two peptides which is helpful for fine lines around the eyes and such. -Non-fragrant rosehip oil, moisturizing pantheol, vitamin C, and two forms of Vitamin E are included which help strengthen the eye area. -Caffeine is included which can help soothe redness, but there isn’t much research that proves it can help puffy eyes.

For babes who love black coffee and soft lips
I LOVE everything about frank body - Original Lip Duo ☕️👄❤️ frank body - Original Lip Scrub I am a coffee lover and much prefer this scrub over fruity/candy ones. It has the perfect amount of exfoliation, not too gentle and not too rough. It melts into your lips as you scrub away the dead skin. Personally, I like to rinse the scrub off because I think it’s weird to ingest the dead lip skin I just sloughed off (is that a weird thought?) However, it is safe to consume so lick away if that’s your thing! frank body - frank body Lip Balm The balm is the BOMB! It has no color, so I like to use it for more than lips. It smells very lightly of coffee. I almost missed the smell since I layered it over the scrub. I use my finger to apply to my lips and then rub any leftover product from my finger tips to my nail cuticles. I’m all about that multitasking! The balm sinks into my lips after about 5 mins or so, and I am left with soft supple lips!
Hate Is A Strong Word
Okay, hear me out on this, Frank Body lovers. Yes, it’s not a bad product, it contains 95% naturally derived ingredients, parabens, phthalates and PEG free, and it contains ground robusta coffee and coffee seed oil. I really, really wanted to love this product as I love Frank Body too, and the team is so lovely over on their Instagram accounts and I loved their frank body - Express-O Coffee Scrub so I thought why not give this one a go too? frank body - Original Lip Scrub I’ve used this maximum of 4 times and I avoid using this product at all costs, but didn’t want to throw it out as it would be a waste of a product so I’ve used this in emergencies before events etc. But the reason I try to avoid this product is because of how oily and squeaky this leaves my mouth area. You know when you touch something gross and you rub your fingers together and it feels all squeaky? (No? Just me?) Well if you understand the feeling, imagine that feeling on your mouth. It’s horrible and I hate it. I also think it doesn’t exfoliate my lips well, I’ve had better experience with using my toothbrush on my lips. I don’t want to be too harsh about this though, as I love Frank Body and I’ve gotta say that Frank Body does get their scents spot on. This smells delicious like coffee beans! But it’s still unfortunately a two star for me. I’ll be purchasing their frank body - Express-O Coffee Scrub again though as I fell in love with it and the smell of it. Divine. 😍 Rating: ★★
Take a look at textures of my fav lip balm/masks

It's really nourishing and makes lips less oily. Love this as overnight lip treatment ❤️ @kncbeauty Superbalm Moringa + Kukui infused lip balmKNC BEAUTY - Supa Balm Mint - This lip balm was gifted to me by @cherie and it's amazing! This tingles a little bit but it goes away in some time. This lip balm exfoliate lips and removes dead flakey patches overnight!! This leaves my lips so smooth and plump the next morning! I really love it's thick oil texture it sits great on lips as emollient and does it's job! @girlactik gelo balmgirlactik - New Jello Gloss Balm - This was my favorite for so many months! it's thick gloss like texture is so luscious and is amazing on lips even in daytime! @tartecosmetics Jelly glazetarte - SEA Jelly Glaze Anytime Lip Mask - This is similar to Girlactic one! Thick and luscious. Also this has red tint which looks amazing on lips! I love this for daytime. It leaves my lips soft and smooth. @koparibeauty lip glossy - It's a gloss but I got this in a darker shade so I use this at home as lip balm! This also feels thick and creamy on lips. @noyahcosmetics Organic Peppermint lip balm - This is thick stick lip balm that feels cooling on lips because of peppermint. I really like the cooling sensation it's great! @noyahcosmetics Organic Vanilla lip balm - This is not cooling and feels nice on lips! it's great but I like thick occlusive lip balms. It's not that emollient and doesn't exfoliate my lips that well. But I like them occasionally. Others are empties and I enjoyed them in past!

🗝Clé de Peau UV Protective Lip Treatment SPF 30
I got this very fancy lip balm by Japanese luxury beauty brand Clé de Peau for my birthday. I wasn’t using it often because I was honestly scared to lose it. It’s not as painful to lose a $1 chapstick lol. Anyways, since I’ve ditched my old lip balms that contained petroleum products, I have been using this more. ☀️This product may still raise health concerns for some because of chemical sunscreens: Octinoxate, Octocrylene, Avobenzone, & Oxybenzone. I’ve found it kinda difficult searching SPF lip products that don’t have petroleum products, & also contain a purely mineral sunscreen. I’ll go into more detail about chemical vs mineral SPF in a future post. But in short, the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) began working last year to tighten regulations on the US sunscreen market regarding chemical SPF. The main concern is that unlike mineral sunscreen, it’s found in your blood stream quite quickly & proliferates in the body with continuous application. But scientists, doctors & dermatologists don’t seem to agree on what implications there may be; from harmless to cancer causing... clé de peau BEAUTÉ - UV Protective Lip Treatment Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I’m gonna be a little hard on this guy because of the hefty $65 price tag. It feels really smooth & rich when you swipe it on, but sadly, the rose scent that it claims to have really isn’t there😞🥀 Though moisturizing at first, it isn’t the lasting hydration I’d hope for in a lip balm this pricey. If I have cracked skin on my lips even a little, it can be sorta irritating. It might actually be making my lips dryer in the long run. Has a very nice glass like shine though🧊 Another thing I have to rag on simply because it’s a luxury product... the sticker on the back of the tube. I know that makeup products containing sunscreen have to have these little stickers, but this one was so thick it starts peeling up at the sides getting pocket gunk stuck in it... so I tried to take it off & had to use so many alcohol swabs but still it’s never clean. Kinda lame, just looks gross all the time lol ( see last couple photos )
ESTĒE LAUDER-Pure Color Love Cooling Highlighter
Tinted lip balm for my latest Trip 💓
Fresh Sugar lip balm: Tulip color satin finish look! Main ingredients: Sugar, Black current seed oils and Grapeseed oil help prevent moisture loss and smooth skin. Sugar lip balm is my Favorite tinted lip balm I carried with me anywhere on my vacation. I like the scent and taste, it is very pleasant. I prefer to use tinted lip balm over liquid lipstick because it gives my lips natural for my vacation sproty looks plus this product also have sun protection SPF 15. I can re apply it all day long and it doesnt make me feel heavy or dry my lip out. This is my selfie I took when I was finished hiking for an hours. And yet my lips still look healthy with a little of tinted. I like how it looks on my lips. Over all I give fresh sugar lip balm Tulip color 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ One down: It didn’t hydrated my lips enough when temperature goes down. Also I think it is pricey for $24 lip balm in 0.15 oz fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 How about you guys, Any recommendations for tinted lips balm over winter?

Anti-aging lip treatment
🔍 WHAT IS IT? Anti-aging lip treatment formulated to instantly hydrate, smooth lip area, plump, soften and reduce vertical lines around lips, prevent lipstick bleed. 🔍KEY INGREDIENTS: Phytoestrogen complex- Plant derived (castor seed, radish root, and grape seed) molecules to provide hydration, boost collagen and improve elasticity in skin. Peptides- Palmitoyl tripeptide-38 combined with portulaca pilosa plant extract, stimulates hyaluronic acid production, reduces and helps prevent vertical lines. Yuzu, Ginger & Cucumber- Plant sourced edible flavor essences. 🔍 MY EXPERIENCE: It is more of a cream treatment than a lip balm with a lightweight consistency that absorbs quickly and there is no greasiness. I like the smell and it tastes delicious. I use it under lip balm or lip gloss and even a lipstick. The lightweight formula makes it a great choice to use under matte lipstick. I have seen the difference within few weeks (twice a day) of using this lip treatment. My lips are softer, plump, smooth and never dry. It is pricey ($85) 🙈 but it does work and a definite repurchase for me (when there is a sale).

Can the real best lip balm please stand up
LISTEN UP Y’ALL. THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL. Blistex - Blistex Dct Daily Conditioning Treatment Spf 20 My family has been using this lip conditioning treatment as our regular, everyday lip balm for as long as I can remember. It’s time I share the secret! This is your lips’ best friend. It will cure your dry lips overnight, not even exaggerating. Smooth on a good amount of this creamy, light balm at night. In the morning, your lips will have a floating layer of dry, gross lip that you just wipe off to reveal smooth baby lips again. Even if you don’t need a deep treatment, use this as your regular chapstick throughout the day and you’ll never see dry lips again. Even in the dry winter months. Another pro? This looks like a shiny lipgloss when applied. I’ve gotten so many compliments from men and women because of this. It has NO other match, not even from highly rated lipglosses. I wear this when I go out and it has never failed me. It even has SPF for daytime. A miracle worker: this is the ONLY lip balm I could use during my accutane treatments that actually helped and wasn’t just a layer sitting on my lips. It is so moisturizing, yet comfortable and not globby or heavy at all. This is 1000x better than Aquaphor (Aquaphor - Lip Repair + Protect Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ) guys. Better than the LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask too! You’ll be so thankful using this on isotretinoin. I have converted all my friends to using this product and they’re shocked they never knew about it before. I would buy this even if it were $20 a pop, but lucky for us it’s around $3. I cannot say enough good things about this. I would give it 10 stars if I could! Do yourself a favor and go buy some of this miracle product! You will never look back.
