I know, been mia-ing so much.
I've been busy [Okay, that was part lie]
Anyhow, I'm back and here to stay~
As many of you should know by now, I have extremely dry and chapped lips.
No matter how much water I drink or how much lip moisturizer I slap on, it's useless.
Therefore, I always need to carry a lip balm with me.
I'm overjoyed to hear that Mentholatum, parent company to my trusty lip balm brand LipIce, launched 6 new lip balms under the series name "Lip Pure"
I was provided with Lip Pure Fragrance Free [Stick] & Lip Pure Honey Lemon [Lip Gel].
Now, why did Mentholatum release their new lip balms under a new series "Lip Pure" instead of, say, the usual "Lip Ice"?
Simple - These lip balms are made of Beexwax & Natural Food grade ingredients.
That's right, no preservatives, no colourants - just pure, natural goodness.
Notable ingredients are include...
Beeswax - Moisturise and soften lips
Jojoba - Smooths skin
Grape Seed - Slows & prevents aging
Aloe Vera - Soothes dry lips
Almond - Nourishes with Vitamin E
Shea Butter - Heals dry lips
Of the 6 new lip balms, 3 are in the "stick" form that we are all so familiar with
[3 flavours: Fragrance Free, Bergamot and Orange]
Since the one I got is fragrance free, of course I have to put that claim to a test...
100% confirmed - no scent at all!
Easy to apply, no taste either.
My Rating: 3.75/5
While I really like the fact that it is made of natural, food grade ingredients, the moisturising property is slightly weaker compared to other lip balms from the same company [like Lipice]. I had to touch up about every 3 hours or so. I'm really baffled how my lips are so so dry despite drinking plenty of liquids!
Full list of ingredients: Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Beeswax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Microcrystalline Wax/BHT, copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Aloe Vera Oil Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, TBHQ
Another 3 types are in the form of a lip gel.
[3 Flavours: Fragrance free, Honey Lemon, Orange]
Always smelling products.
It really smells like the honey lemon drink!
Easy application because of the tapered mouth where the product is being dispense~
My Rating: 4/5
It is rated slightly higher than the stick ones because the moisturising property is slightly better, so at least that's what I observed in my case; lasted about 4~4.5 hours before I had to touch up. I feel so comfortable knowing that it is made of natural ingredients! Makes me feel like I'm pampering my lips a lot more than usual.
