One thing I love about what I do, is being able to find, and let you know about little unknown products and companies that are out there making a foothold in this crazy beauty industry.
Case in point: Blissoma's Lip Elixir.
Looking for a different lip balm? I mean really different? This is it. The Lip Elixir is a non wax, non petroleum balm made from shea butter, jojoba oil and sunflower oil, which is infused with comfrey, calendula and coriander to promote healthy, soft lips. In a roll on and in 3 flavors, Smooth Citrus, Rosy Glow and Ginger-nilly. I was sent the Rosy Glow, a berry colored balm that's also 100% natural and 95% organic.
The interesting thing about this is that it rolls on as an oil, and gives a super shiny berry tinged stain look. At first the oil feels strange and I had the feeling of trying really hard not to lick my lips. Because who wants to lick oil all day? But it's not really like what you think it is. First of all the scent is of roses, and the taste, is non-existent. But from the scent and feel of it, it does take you back. But after you got over that, the look and feel is amazing.
I love how shiny my lips looked and the berry color was just right. It doesn't stain the lips but it gives it the just right cherry lip look. And it lasts longer that you think it will. A few hours later and I'm happily rolling on some more. I've become addicted. My lips look fantastic, and feel super soft. Perfect for those light makeup days. And the scent actually is nice. Though the scent of roses coming from your lips seems strange, I actually look forward now to the scent.
Another hit from Blissoma. Of course! This from the company that gives you cupcake soaps. You gotta love them.
