Winter is here and with it many might have issues of chapped lips. It is wise to take the habit of applying some lip balm to protect your lips from the cold weather. I recently received some samples from Mentholatum which will help any sensitive lips out there to get the protection that is needed. I have received a Softlips Intense Hydration lavender and a Softlips maxilip.
What is Softlips ?
Softlips Intense Hydration Lip Moisturize with Lipidure Technology has an advanced, moisture attraction formula which provides superior hydration and protection by drawing moisture from the air and locking it into your lips. Recent studies show that Lipidure Technology has higher moisture attracting and retention capabilities than hyaluronic acid, which is commonly found in other lip care products. These products are filled with natural replenishing ingredients like shea butter oil, vitamin E and macadamia nut oil. Three different soflips Intense Hydration are on the market: peppermint, citrus bergamot and lavender.
Metholatum Softlips maxilip is a double-layered, anti-aging lip balm. The outer layer contains Ceramide which locks in moisture and provides effective protection for chapped and sensitive lips. The inner layer is enriched with maxilip to help reduce fine lines, while an antioxidant helps to delay the aging of skin and maintain healthy and youthful looking lips.
I will be honest with you. I have seen these Softlips at the stores near my place. I was curious and looked forward to review them. I had picked a lavender Soflips Intense Hydration because I really liked the smell of lavender. It has something in it that soothes me. And I was curious about the maxilip as well.
So when I received my samples, I immediately opened them in order to try them out. The lavender Softlips Intense Hydration was smooth on the lips but I will admit that I was very surprised with the strong smell of lavender coming from it. Though it did moisture the lips after application, I am reticent in using it again because of the strong lavender smell coming from it. I am partly sensitive with strong smell and though I like lavender usually, I really find it was a bit too much for a lip balm. However, some people wouldn’t mind the smell and might enjoy it better than me.
So I opened the other product and I was pleasantly surprise when I tried it. I enjoy having a lip balm that is large as I find it is easier to put on. It reminds me of a tube of lipstick (which I don’t use often). When you look at the balm inside you can see two different colors: a soft yellow and a white one surrounding it. The product doesn’t leave you with an after taste and it is easy to apply. Every time I use it I sense that my lips are smoother. I really love the Softlips maxilip and I really recommend it to everyone.
In all, even if I am slightly bothered with the smell of the Softlips Intense Hydration, I think that the Softlips products are fabulous and very useful. They are easy to carry in your purse of coat pocket for instant relief when you are outside during the cold season.
You can find the Softlips products are your favourite store.
