Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 mixes the standard oils and waxes with sugar for  a tasty balm. I happen to love this conditioner because it manages to pack in a lot of moisture without being too oily. So it also lasts well.

The only downside is its price, although it still get rave reviews at Sephora.com.

Chapstick Overnight Lip Treatment

I am a lip balm junkie and usually reapply it several times overnight. So, when I came across Chapstick Overnight Lip treatment at a drugstore, I figured I would love it. Unfortunately, I had mixed results.

I found that the cream-like balm didn’t last all that well for me and I ended up reapplying my regular balm, which I also preferred, just as often.

The ingredient list also wasn’t all that impressive to me:

Active Ingredient: Dimethicone (2%). Inactive Ingredients: Aloe Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Cyclomethicone, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isocetyl Stearate, Lactic Acid, Methylparaben, Microcrystalline Wax, Petrolatum, Propylparaben, Salicylic Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin E.

There are a couple of exfoliators in there, some not-so-natural moisturizers, and paraben preservatives. since I can get more moisture with a good natural balm made with a nice mix of oils, butters and wax, I will stick with that.

Garden Botanika Vitamin E Stick

Garden Botanika Vitamin E Lip Stick I love Vitamin E sticks for lips. They soothe and smooth and generally protect as well as any balm. Garden Botanika makes a particularly nice one.

The Garden Botanika Vitamin E Stick protects and conditions with Vitamin E and Olive Oil.  It also contains Emollient Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter, Meadowfoam and Sunflower Oil for extra moisturizing.  There are no fragrances, mineral oil or lanolin derivatives.

I carry mine around with me for indoor use and particularly love it when I either get a bit wind chapped in summer  (you can use this on your regular skin just as well as on the lips) or if I get dry in the winter.
