Lip Luxury: Natura Bisse Lip Recovery Balm
For many, many years I used Aquaphor on my lips before I went to bed.
Lord knows how much chemical crap is in my digestive track–I can envision little Aquaphor colonies in my intestines where mineral oil still reigns–but I loved how it stayed on all night and my lips seemed smooth.
It was difficult because I could not find a lip balm that (1) left my lips smooth and soft the next am and (2) wasn’t filled with the same crap as my Aquaphor.
I contemplated returning to this toxic relationship, until
my knight in shining armor Natura Bisse’s Lip Recovery Balm came along.
I was skeptical at first, since it was like putting a moisturizing cream on my lips. It didn’t feel anything like Aquaphor (or any other greasy-gel like lip treatment I was used to), so I was afraid that I’d wake up with dry, chapped lips the next am.
When I woke up, I had soft, supple lips without all the leftover nasty. And it’s great as a lip color base before you go out.
Best thing is it has quality ingredients (hello Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E…to name a few!) and you’re not ingesting a teaspoon of crap each night.
Here are the list of benefits from Natura Bisse (and I can vouch that it does every one of these things):
- Redefines the lip contour
- Boosts the natural micro-repairing process
- Softens and smoothes the lip surface
- Reduces dryness
- Soothes the lips and restores suppleness
- Ultra-conditioning lip treatment
- Creates the ideal base for lip color
Only downside? The price tag. BUT, I’ve been using my tub since May–day and night–and I am only a 1/4 of the way through it.
In Femilady’s not so humble opinion, if an item is pricey but has quality ingredients, lasts a long time, and actually works, it’s totally worth.
