La Fresh hello Eco-Beauty Lip Treat Review

La Fresh Eco-Beauty Lip Treat #review #lipcare #beauty

In the summer, the last thing I want to do is to apply any sort of sticky or gooey product to my lips.  I am a lip gloss fanatic, but even the lightest gloss is too much product for me when it’s sweltering.  I will usually just opt for lip balm and add a water-based stain if I want a bit of color, preferring to keep my lips as natural as possible.

Since I tend to forego lip colors for the most part during summer, I like to ensure that my lips look and feel their absolute best without having to layer on the products.  La Fresh hello Lip Treat has become the lip product that I can rely on to soothe and moisturize my lips with ingredients like shea butter and cocoa butter.  This La Fresh Hello Lip Treat also contains collagen-producing oligopeptides and a blend of  of sweet almond, jojoba, peppermint & cinnamon oils to smooth fine lines and shape lip contours.

DIY Lip Care Treatments

DIY Lip Treatments #skincare #DIY

My lips are one of those areas of my face that I will admit gets neglected. I wear a protective lip balm to keep them hydrated, but when it comes to pampering them I am neglectful. 

Lately I have been making it a beauty priority to give my lips their very own spa time.  I exfoliate them, apply a lip mask and hydrate them the same way I do with the rest of my face.  I’ve realized that it is actually extremely easy to whip up lip care treatments with a lot of the items in my refrigerator for soft, plump, hydrated lips.  Read more

Hydrated Summer Lips with Nivea Lip Butter

Nivea Lip Butter Review

Once summer arrives, I need everything to feel and be light, simple and effortless.  From my clothing, to food to my beauty products, everything needs to have that summery carefree essence to it.  Do you agree?

Which is why a few of my beauty products from winter, fall and even spring just do not make the cut for summer.  During the cooler months I don’t mind feeling like there is a layer of protection between my skin and the dry, damaging chill of fall and winter. However, in the summer while I still need the protection, I really do not want to feel the products on my skin. I’ve had to retire a few of my lip products for the time being, especially my heavier lip balms and opt for lighter feeling, but still hydrating lip products. Read more

NOYA Kosher Natural Lip Balm Review

Finally, a lip balm that you can actually eat!  Not that I would intentionally eat my lip balm of course, but I do have a bad habit of licking my lips a lot so I know that I am ingesting a good portion of what I apply to my lips.

This is why I am ecstatic about Noya’s Kosher Natural Lip Care.  All of their lip balms contain only 3-5 all-natural, kosher ingredients such as Coconut Oil, Beeswax and Organic Extra Virgin Olive.  The lip balms come in four flavors, Cherry, Vanilla, Spearmint and Classic and it’s difficult to pick which one I love best because they are all amazing.

They are moisturizing without being super sticky or heavy feeling and both Read more

Lip Balm Review: Infinity Sun Avance Balme

Lip balms are a must in my daily beauty routine. Regardless if I’m relaxing at home or heading out, I always make sure my lips are moisturized and protected. A lip balm for me must moisturize without feeling heavy and oily on my lips. Even better if it has SPF.
