Keeping my lips moisturized is a big concern for me in the cold winter months. So I literally keep lip balms all over the place…in my office, in all of my handbags and of course anywhere I go. I like to try different lips balms because you never know if there is something else that might work better than what you already have. Besides there are different lip balms for different lip care needs. Sometimes I want intense hydration and other times I want light moisture with a hint of color. It all depends on my needs and sometimes my mood.
I’ve read about Korres Lip Butters and the reviews were pretty good. But just because a product works for one person, doesn’t mean that it’s going to work for everyone else. But I was adventurous and it only costs $12 – so I was in. Korres is a natural skincare brand and I’ve tried many of their other products before so that’s another reason why I decided to give this lip butter a try. Korres stays away from harmful ingredients such as:
- Synthetic Fragrances
This lip butter contains Shea butter and rice wax to provide hydration and softness. These “butters” come in seven shades including clear (Guava). I chose Jasmin which is supposed to be a sheer neutral pink but on my complexion it appears to be more of a milky pink – not attractive. If you rub it in a bit the lip butter provides a nice sheen but I still wouldn’t wear it alone. The texture is very creamy so a little definitely goes a very long way and the moisture payoff is great. This little balm does moisturize dry lips quite quickly which is what you want in a balm during cold weather season. What’s your favorite lip balm?
Korres, Lip Butters, $12. Exclusively available at Sephora.
