Meet Cherry, the newest addition to the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 family. She joins Advanced Treatment, Berry, Coral, Honey, Passion, Petal, Plum, Rose and (the original) Sugar.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 blends reparative oils and waxes with real sugar, a natural humectant, for delectable and dependable moisture. This hydrating treatment nourishes, protects and plumps the lips – while providing essential, year-round protection from damaging UV rays.
I just love these balms. In fact, Passion and Berry have taken up residency in my purse lately.
If you know me, you know that I’m a Neosporin junkie. I’m like the overzealous dad in My Big Fat Greek Wedding who sprays Windex on everything; except my weapon of choice is Neosporin. I put it on everything because, to me, Neosporin heals all wounds…and I feel nekkid if I don’t have a tube of it in my purse or on my person at all times.
So imagine my surprise (and excitement) to learn that the #1 doctor recommended brand of topical antibiotic treatment recently launched a new line of Lip Health products – timed perfectly to prepare your lips for the upcoming fall chill. They are hitting stores over the next few weeks and retail for around $4.99.
The new Neosporin Lip Health line includes 2 products: * Daily Hydration Therapy nourishes and strengthens the lips by day, and has SPF 20. * Overnight Renewal Therapy works during the body’s natural recovery process while you sleep, resulting in softer, smoother lips by day.
Both products have been clinically shown to restore visibly healthier lips in just 3 days. They have a patented technology that penetrates within the skin’s surface to restore healthier lips, unlike other products that simply provide a topical barrier.
Neosporin Lip Health products are available at nationwide food, drug and mass market chains.
Just in case you missed my most recent Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week (I posted it at an awkward time and it got buried under Fashion Week and Oscars articles), check it out. It’s my first video product review. Enjoy!
It’s getting downright chilly in Philly. In a matter of days, my lips started cracking up – like they’d been watching a Chris Rock comedy special. Luckily, I discovered Yu-Be, the #1 selling medicated, vitamin-enriched skin care cream in Japan.
Yu-Be is a Glycerin-based moisturizing cream enriched with Vitamin E, Vitamin B2 and Camphor. The uniquely high Glycerin content, achieved through a special manufacturing process in Japan, makes Yu-Be very effective on severely dry skin.
What sets Yu-Be apart from other lip treatments is the highly absorptive formula. Your thirsty lips will drink it in, and it will hydrate, heal and lock in moisture for hours. Yu-Be leaves behind soft, supple lips – without the greasy, balmy finish. Which means that, when your lips are especially jacked up, you needn’t choose between a cushy restorative treatment and a cute lip color. Just dab Yu-Be on and wait a minute…then swipe on your favorite lipstick or gloss, and you’re good to go.
In addition to curing cracked lips, Yu-Be also heals and prevents split cuticles and smoothes rough skin. Use it to soften calluses and hard, cracked heels. It replenishes lost moisture from frequent hand washing and minimizes scarring from burns. Even world-class mountain climbers from Japan use it to protect their skin from the harsh cold, wind, water and sun on expeditions to the top of Mt. Everest!
When I popped by my parents’ house today, I was warmly greeted by their housekeeper, Ruth, whom I haven’t seen in a while. “Marriage certainly agrees with you. You’re positively glowing,” she said.
Marriage to Mr. Spoiled Pretty is bliss…but I have to admit that MAC, not my man, is most likely responsible for my radiant skin.
MAC’s Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, from the Future Earth collection is made of natural volcanic ash and sugar crystals. When I twisted the cap off of the jar, the oily, mineral-rich scrub kinda reminded me of Primordial soup.
It doesn’t look like something you’d want to smear all over your face, but with its promises of softer, smoother, clearer and less-oily skin, I did just that. Not too cute, I know…but wait until you see your skin after you wash it off. Mwah!
The Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher is another product from the Future Earth collection that does double duty. This dual-sided lip stick exfoliates to scrub away scaly skin, and conditions lackluster lips. Pucker up!
I don’t know where you live. But it’s frigid in Philadelphia. For weeks, my lips have been jacked up. No matter how much I moisturized, they were snap, crackle, and poppin’. And not in a good way.
So this evening, while my hubby was away at poker night, I decided to pamper my pout. And in about 5 minutes, I had lips to die for, literally, thanks to Peter Thomas Roth’s Lip Facial Trio. It’s exactly what it sounds like.
First, I exfoliated my lips with the Heavenly Lemon Sugar Scrub. Then I applied the Super Smooth Lip Putty (in my opinion, the coolest part of part of the trio) – a clay-based masque that soothes and hydrates. Finally, I smeared on the Pink Bombshell Lip Balm, an iridescent lip conditioner.
I highly recommend the Lip Facial Trio, not only because it does what it promises – but because it’s a completely unique product. You’d be hard-pressed to find another lip treatment that does what this does, let alone one that does it better.
If your lips are looking a hot mess, invest in this product. Your lipstick/gloss will go on more smoothly. But more importantly, your lips will look and feel fabulous.
If you ever anticipate being shipwrecked on a deserted island, make sure to pack Maiden Beauty’s Perfect Pout Lip Scrub. This brown sugar exfoliant buffs and refines your lips…and it’s 100% edible!
The scrub comes with your choice of Tasty Tint Lip Balm, a glossy moisturizer featuring a hint of color and a kiss of brown sugar flavor. Balm choices include Pretty (light pink), Smart (sheer caramel) and Lady (cherry red).
