Soothing Lip Balm

My previous post was about LUSH Vanilla and Chocolate lip scrub . I mentioned that I also recenly use a lip balm after exfoliating. I feel I just have to post this simply because it is working for me. I know its just a lip balm but my skin has been acting wierd lately blame it on my hormonal imbalance plus the weather here in our country. I am now using Avalon Organics Skin Nourishing Antioxidant Intense Vitamin C sun-aging defense Soothing Lip Balm. Previously I use the one from carmex, at first I was loving it especially the menthol effect but after using it for 3 days I noticed that my upper lip felt thick and scaly, maybe because I am reacting to some of its ingredients. I stopped using it for a while then used it again because I have to make sure if its the culprit and my guess is right.

Going back to the soothing lip balm from Avalon Organics which I bought from Healthy Options, my lips didnt react negatively after using it for almost 2 weeks now. I love that it doesnt feel sticky or heavy when applied and my lips feel better now. What I also love about it is the anti-oxidant and anti-aging effect the cons is just that it doesnt have SPF. I forgot the exact price but its budget friendly around 100+ php for 7g/.25 oz. Of product. I'll definetely purchase this again.

100% Vegetarian Ingredients. Not tested on animals. Its shelf life is for 12 mos. I have been lemming towarsd organic and products that have anti-aging effect lately. Talk about aging huh!? I am so conscious lately with regards to my skin since I am on my early 30's! Though I have been always told that I just look like I'm on my early 20's most of the time :) I dont have a secret skin regimen since I just use Acne Aid soap and sometimes a serum for my face that is if I remember to apply. I dont use moisturizer because I have oily and cne prone skin.

My Sweet Lips

This will be the first time for me to review on a certain product. The reason why is that I didnt wanna have a say on a certain product which I dont believe into and if I dont have any positive say on something, I'd better shut my mouth. :)

My lips has been somewhat dry lately not only my lips but my eyelids also... Recently my skin has been in a crazy mode. For my lips, I recently purchased a lip balm and exfoliator. I bought SWEET LIPS from Lush for my lip scrub. It comes in various variants but I choosed Vanilla and chocolate sugar lip scrub.

It costs me 495 php for a 25 g of lip scrub that comes in a jar.

On the lid, as you can see its where you can find the date it was made and its expiration date.

For its directions: Rub a little gently into your lips to scrub them smooth and soft. Ingredients: Castor Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinesis), Vanilla Extract (Vanilla planifolia), Cocoa Absolute (Theobroma cacao), Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta),

Flavour My Say: A little goes a long way, you just need a small amount of this to exfoliate the lips. After rubbing it gently my lips feel soft, smooth and my lips is pinkier in color. I love the flavor, I almost wanna lick my lips while I was scrubbing it on my lips. I wiped my lips with a wet tissue after the sugar melted then followed by applying a Soothing Lip Balm which I'll be reviewing soon. I'll rate it 4/5, if the sugar was a little bit finer I'll give it a 5/5 and if it would be nice if has a moisturizing effect. I'm still contemplating if I'll repurchase it (if I dont find other alternative I will).
