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. Read more
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
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
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 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.
Infinity Sun Avance Balme lip care is a blend of the finest certified organic ingredients, including Organic Beeswax, Organic Vitamin E, Organic Essential Oils, Organic Rosemary Extract and Organic Calendula to soothe and heal chapped lips, keeping the lips moist, soft, and supple. And to top it off, all four flavors – Citrus, Coconut, Spearmint & Vanilla Bean, have SPF15. Read more
Every avid beauty collector has at least one product they can’t live without. Whether it’s your favorite moisturizer, a concealer that tops all the rest, or the best mascara that seems to completely transform your face, every gal’s got something they stock up on religiously and keep in every purse, pocket, or car compartment! That product for me is Therapy Systems‘ Even Better Than Lips lip balm. Made from 100% natural ingredients, this bad boy soothes and moisturizes (no matter how chapped my pucker is), and doesn’t feel too heavy or waxy. Read more
Hoola, Bella Bamba, Dallas – no, these aren’t the names of fad dance crazes! They’re some of Benefit’s best-selling boxed powders – from blushes and bronzers to shimmery luminizers, and beyond! And if you’re a fan of Dandelion’s baby pink highlighting sheen, Coralista’s tropical flush, or Sugar Bomb’s universally-flattering sheer glow, just to name a few of Benefit’s blessings, you’ll likely be thrilled to know that the San Francisco-based beauty brand has just released a 6-piece set of lip glosses to match each of their fan-favorite face powders!

Unless you’re a stickler for protecting your pucker during these hot summer months (good for you!), chances are, your lips aren’t having as much fun as you are while you mingle at friends’ pool parties and bask the day away at the beach. Plus, if you have that dreadful bad habit of constantly chewing on dry lips like I do, and just can’t help making things even worse, your smoocher probably hates you right now. But don’t fret – even if you forget that ever-so-important SPF lip balm before leaving the house, hope is not lost – you can still soothe sun-abused, wind-ravaged lips while you sleep. Seriously!

I used to absolutely LOVE lip balms, but the older I get the more I seem to shy away from them.Â I guess I just have memories of lip balms being really thick and sticky with overwhelmingly sweet fruity scents and somewhat childish packaging… I had apparently missed the boat on BÃ©same Sweetheart Balms.Â This balmÂ is nothing like the lip balms I have used in the past.Â It is really moisturizing and conditioning without beingÂ thick and sticky.Â The Tangerine Sweetheart Balm smells like tangerines, but is not overpoweringly fruity, the scent is actually pretty refreshing.Â I am absolutely in love with the sheer color of the balm, it’s a very flattering reddish coral shade.Â The packaging isÂ also quiteÂ beautiful, it’s apparent that a lot of detail went into the packaging of this balm.Â It is pretty and feminine with just a touch of glamour.
Everything about BÃ©same Sweetheart Balm appealed to me, from the scent to the packaging to the feel and color.Â I would not be surprised if while wearing this balm my boyfriend is tempted to sneak in some extra besos…
Have you tried this lip balm or any other products from BÃ©same?
The nights are getting colder and soon enough we’ll be turning up the heat to keep warm this winter. Of course, along with that comes dry skin and of course, chapped lips. Einstein Cosmetics has two lip products to help keep you one step ahead of dry lips (which never look pretty no matter how much lipstick you apply) .
Einstein Cosmetics Cooling Relief Balm is deliciously scented. A combination of vanilla and mint provide a warm-cool sensation to your lips. The balm isn’t waxy feeling or tacky and it’s rich with cocoa butter and Vitamins A & E to intensely hydrate your lips.
Einstein Cosmetics Lip Therapy is quite an interesting creation. In the jar it is a cream that looks and feels like body lotion. It contains tiny yellow Vitamin C beads that first lead me to believe that this was an exfoliating cream rather than a lip product you wear. However, rubbing your lips together enough will slough off the dry skin and minimize the beads to a size that you can no longer feel them on your lips. The scent is very light and resembles a mint or eucalyptus fragrance. It surely makes your lips tingle and feel cool.
Both products kept my lips well moisturized; have you used these products? Let me know what you thought!
