Warning: This is what happens when I write about a product that will easily make my year’s best products list immediately after trying it. Actually, make that my best products ever list!
Important, wonderful, product link: Murad Energizing Pomegranate Lip Protector Spf 15
Important Commentary: Wow! Wow, wow, wow! Looooooove it! If you buy only one flavored gloss this year, make it this one! BEST GLOSS EVER! Yummy, pretty, glossy, SPF protection!
Whew! OK, I got the main points out of my system, now let’s discuss this product. Murad has managed to create everything I want in a lip gloss. EVERYTHING! OK, so I’m still raving a bit…..
The Murad Energizing Pomegranate Lip Protector is a tube gloss with a delicate light pink tint. It gives a perfect glossy shine, with absolutely no stickiness; it tastes and smells incredible; it moisturizes as well as any other conditioning gloss or balm that I have tried, and; most importantly, it includes SPF 15.
In case you missed it, concerns were recently raised that lip gloss use increases your skin cancer risk, because a gloss sheen might intensify the sun’s effects. Thus, SPF in or under your gloss becomes even more important. I would still rave about this wonderful gloss even if didn’t have SPF, but that addition puts it over the top into my category of best ever products.
From the product literature:
As seen in InStyle April 2008.Revitalize and protect dry, dehydrated lips, improving texture, restoring suppleness and fighting free radicals. Pomegranate extract and UVA/UVB sunscreens provide powerful antioxidant protection. Salicylic acid gently exfoliates to reveal supple lips. Shea butter and jojoba esters condition and intensely hydrate.
So this one, conditions, exfoliates (I love the addition of salicylic acid), protects, and manages to look and taste great all in one. It is genius. The only downside is the cost. This one is a bit pricey, although not horribly high based on comparable higher end products.
I originally bought my Murad gloss at an ULTA Beauty store and it can be found at other locations, including the first link that I gave above (that one goes to Beauty Bridge ).
Seriously: The best gloss of the year, or maybe the decade. Possibly even all time.
Update, this now comes in various flavors. See the link to Beauty Bridge. They carry most or all of them!
