So a few weeks ago Softlips sent me some products to share with you lovely guys and gals which I was really excited about because the brand has been a favourite on mine way before I started blogging :) Here are the fantastic lip care products that I recommend:
When I was in high school, I wasnt really the girly girl type but I still had a few staple beauty products I used. One of these staples was the very delicious French Vanilla Softlips. It is an amazingly clear scented lip balm that leaves your lips with a tingly fresh sensation.
It really does hydrate your lips and it definitely surpasses the quality of other brands that I used at the time like Labello and Lip Ice. Another plus? It has an SPF 20 so your lips are extra protected from harmful sun damage.
Since meeting my boyfriend back in 2009, I have gotten him hooked on the yummy vanilla scent and powerful moisturising properties so it is definitely masculine enough and has my boyfriend's approval ;)
This is one of those nostalgic scents and I firmly believe it will continue to stay one of my favourite lip conditioners, as long as they keep making them!
For the environmental friendly individuals and organic fanatics, Softlips now have a whole "Pure" organic range with 100% natural ingredients in the balm sticks.
I got to try out the fruity Papaya balm stick and I must say I am impressed! I find that 100% natural products have a rough texture, weird scent and other funky particles that you dont find in factory processed products. This balm could definitely take on those products and win.
The texture is nothing short of perfectly smooth, the scent is heavenly and it leaves your lips smooth and utterly kissable!
Good news for the ladies and gents who dislike the tingly feeling that you find in the popular French Vanilla lip conditioner. Seeing as this is a 100% natural product it doesn't have all the tingly ingredients and if you have sensitive lips they wont feel irritated :)
Glimmer Gloss in Pearl Pink
Something else I hadn't tested from Softlips until now is their Glimmer Gloss lip gloss in "Pearl Pink".
I really love the subtle glossy finish that you can pull off on its own or over a lipstick for extra UMPH!
It has tiny little shimmers in it to give your lips a kissable sparkle. It has more of a 'thick oil' texture rather than 'your grandfathers wood glue' texture which is definitively something I am a fan of.
I also found the dainty 7g tube quite cute. It is perfect for fancy clutch purses or for inside the zipper of your hand bag.
I have a feeling this pretty gloss will be making an appearance for the new years party, midnight kiss ;)
Lastly I got to test out a very handy all-rounder lip balm, tint and shimmer aaand SPF.
Again, the smart Softlips peeps added an SPF 15 to this tinted lip conditioner as well as the tingly sensation infamous to Softlips.
I have been wearing this rose tinted balm a lot around the office at my new job so I deem it safe for the workplace as it gives a subtle hint of colour without screaming "I just ate a doughnut covered in unicorn poop"
So you haven't heard about Softlips until now? Where have you been!? You can find Soflips pretty much anywhere. Pick'nPay, Clicks, pharmacies, petrol stations, probably even spaza shops :P
Prices all vary but they are obviously quite affordable seeing as I'm not one of those Chanel-Gucci-Prada-Versace kind of bloggers. Duh!
Thanks so much to Softlips for my lovely lip goodies. Like their Facebook Page for news on everything that makes your lips soft!
