Review: Korres Natural Products Lip Butter, Jasmine

The winter time is sure taking a toll on my lips and you know that a makeup junkie like me has to keep her lips soft through this agonizing cold weather, right? Well, I was at Sephora a long time ago looking for a lip balm or treatment that would condition my lips just as well as the Tarte FRXtion. Why am I retiring the Tarte product? Well. . . the way the product is made can be frustrating. I am finding myself running out of the balm faster than the sugar scrub which means I have a stick with more scrub left on it than the balm. So, I was looking for a product that would treat my lips without having to fuss with the scrub being attached to it. Well, I can across the brand called Korres. Korres is a natural cosmetic and skincare brand that uses natural ingredients in their products. Not that being natural was a big issue to me I just wanted a lip product that was not greasy feeling or felt like I was putting petroleum jelly or Vaseline on my lips because those products only coat the lip and not treat them at all. Anyway, I read about this product and what it claims is the following mentioned at Sephora:

Korres Lip Butter gives lips a lovely, shiny finish and offers a natural flush when applied to the apples of the cheeks. Its shea-butter infusion conditions and heals lips and provides a softening touch to the skin.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens (all)
– Sulfates (all)
– Synthetic Fragrances (Guava, Wild Rose, Quince, Pomegranate)
– Synthetic Dyes (Wild Rose, Quince, Pomegranate)
– Petro-Chemicals (all)
– GMO (all).

So after reading that and trying a bit at the store I decided to pick up the Korres Natural Products Lip Butter, Jasmine. I have been using this lip butter since December I am so glad that I purchased it. For one, the color of the lip butter has a very natural lip color which means that I can use it underneath my lipstick to condition my lips without it distorting the color of the lipstick or gloss. Secondly, the price of the butter was only $10, yeah! And, my lips felt so soft and did not get flaky then and now too! All in all, I totally would recommend this product to anyone that needs some conditioning and want to minimize the dry flaky lip anytime of the year.

I love this product!! More Pictures:

Tarte FRXtion Review

It’s that time of year again. The climate is changing from warm and humid to dry and cold. With the changes how are you lips holding up? Are you experiencing the unglamorous dry and cracked lip look right now? I am too and recently this lead me to Sephora on a hunt for a remedy that would solve my problem without spending too much money. While in sephora I came across the Tarte FRXtion 0.12 oz($11.00).

What it is:
A sugar-based lip exfoliant and lip balm stick.

What it does:
Tarte FRXtion Sugar Lip Exfoliator and Soothing Balm features exfoliating sugar crystals and vitamin E vanilla lip balm to soothe, calm and protect lips. A built-in mirror on the cap allows for on-the-go application.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
– Petro-Chemicals
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
This exfoliating lip stick contains Skinvigorating™ ingredients such as aloe leaf extract, known for soothing, healing and antiseptic properties, chamomile extract to treat and heal dry skin, and jojoba seed oil, a naturally-derived oil that is easily absorbed into skin, leaving it more supple. It’s also formulated with vanilla, a fragrant extract with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and vitamins A and E, antioxidants that fight free radical damage.

So, after reading about this wonderful information and getting reassurance from a co-worker I was sold!! I bought it and let me tell you. . . the Tarte FRXtion is amazing. The sugar scrub gently removes any dry skin left on the tips and quickly desolves on the lips without a mess. Then the lip treatment smells so good and feel smooth and non sticky which is a plus! If you are suffering from the cracked dry lips then definitely check this out!!!

Can you tell how much I like it!!
