Softlips Pure Pomegranate and Honeydew

Softlips Pure Pomegranate Softlips has a new 100% natural and 95% organic lip balm, Softlips Pure.  It is comes in two wonderful flavors: Pomegranate and Honeydew.

Softlips balms are thin balms that are rather light in consistency. That means that they do not feel heavy on the lips and a generally quite smooth. Light balms, however, don’t tend to last quite as long as the heavier and waxier balms, so there is a trade off. I tend to like heavy balms at night and outdoors and light balms during the day.

Here are the ingredients in Softlips Pure (starred items are organic):

cocos nucifera (coconut) oil*, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil*, beeswax*, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil*, flavor, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)*, punica granatum (pomegranate) extract*, tocopherol [vitamin E]

I like the addition of olive oil to the balm and sha butter is always a good choice. The balms feel quite nice and do a decent job of conditioning. Mostly though I love the new flavors. Pomegranate and melon are two of my favorites in lip products (my others being orange and grapefruit flavors). The scent/flavor is light—just enough to be enjoyable, without overwhelming.

Look for Softlips Pure at drugstores and big box retailers. Also watch here later this week for a contest to win a set of softlips balms!


NettieScrub Lip Balm

NettieScrub is a great body scrub that I reviewed some time back on Beauty and Fashion Tech (read review). Well, now there is a NettieScrub Lip Balm!

This is a nice, handmade, all natural, tin balm that feels great and smells good too. I tried the flavor cinnamon citron, which is an interesting mix of mango butter, cinnamon oil, and grapefruit oil. I really like the combination. The flavor and scent are fairly light, so it isn’t overwhelming. Made with beeswax and shea butter, the balm manages to be both nicely moisturizing and fairly long lasting. Plus the tin is darn cute!


Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Mini Lip Gloss Collection

Burt’s Bees sent me their Mini Lip Gloss Kit to try. These 100% Natural glosses are quite nice. The kit includes 4 shades of Burt’s Bees super shiny Lip Gloss, pictured below. From left to right: Zesty Red, Pucker Berry, Sweet Pink, and Nectar Nude.

Burt's Bees Super Shiny Lip
The gloss is pretty well tinted and, although it looks a bit thick, it doesn’t feel that way. There is no stickiness whatsoever, and the glosses feel moisturizing and conditioning. There is a slight flavor to them that I can’t quite pin-point. It isn’t particularly strong and is not unpleasant. So those in the anti-flavor camp likely won’t mind this one much.

Look for Burt’s bees in drugstores, big box retailers, and stores such as ULTA Beauty.
