My Sephora Lip Scrub Review..

This post is about Sephora’s Honey Lip Scrub that was given to me by a sweet friend. I haven’t really notice the effect of this lippie so I can’t really tell if it’s a good product especially for those who are having the same dilemma that I have – dry lips. Anyway, read on my short review about it.

Who is it for:

  1. If you have dry lips
  2. If you want to exfoliate and softens your lips

What it claims:

  1. It nourishes, heals, and sooth troubled lips
  2. It exfoliates and soften dry lips

How to use:

  1. Apply to your lips
  2. Use 1-2 times a week

My verdict:

  1. The effect – Its has sugar like crystals that helps in exfoliating lips. The scent is somewhat similar to a perfume. I can’t comment much about the effect because I’ve used it for 4 times and I don’t see much difference on my lips.
  2. Will I recommend it? – Yes. Why not? It’s an affordable lip scrub from Sephora. Just make sure you don’t overuse it. It’s not recommended to ALWAYS exfoliate. Isn’t it?

 

My Vanilla Lip Balm Review..

Do you love using organic products? Well, if yes, this one’s a must buy.

I have dry lips which made me search and buy for lip balms and creams that can help me bring back my soft lips that enables me to wear any kind of lipstick that I want. I previously used a hydrating lip balm of The Body Shop but unfortunately it’s out of stock. So I went to BHG (a department store here in Singapore) to check if there’s a good alternative that I can try.

As I start looking at the organic products I found this. A vanilla lip balm made with shea butter that promise to nourish and moisten any lip type. So I purchased one. How is it? Read and find out.

Who is it for:

  1. If you have dry lips
  2. If you love organic lip balm

What it claims:

  1. It nourishes, heals, and sooth troubled lips

How to use:

  1. Apply to your lips
  2. Use as often as necessary

My verdict:

  1. The effect – It’s a white non-glossy stick. Once applied it does not give you the glossy look and feel just like a regular lip balm or lip gloss. There’s no vanilla scent.
  2. Will I recommend it? – If you love using organic products then this is a must try. I prefer lip balms that hydrates my lips at the same time giving it a glossy look.

 

 

My Tea Tree Cleanser Review..

Recently I noticed that my lips are so dry and its a bit itchy when I don’t put lip balm or oil on it. So I decided to try this facial cleanser that is originally bought for my boyfriend. Anyway, after using it for few weeks I noticed that it’s slowly healing my dry lips and so far I don’t see any breakouts on my face. So, if you’re into tea tree products, give it a try. Here’s my quick review about it.
