Remember there was one point of time I had so many lip balm sent over that it was too overwhelming? Not anymore 😛
I always appreciate lip balm sent over my way because I rely heavily on lip balm on day to day basis. When I had an allergy on my lips last year, clear moisturizing lip balm was all I used. I keep a tube on my work table so I can reapply constantly to keep my dry lips moisturize and I always, ALWAYS apply lip balm as I do my makeup so that lipstick goes on smoother.
Let me be honest. When Softlips Cube landed on my desk, I was not too impressed. I do not like the squarish bulky packaging at first glance. Maybe it is just me because all my handbag are so small and sometimes I can’t even fit a lipstick in. To bring Softlips Cube out and about is out of the question no thanks to its packaging. Cute, yes. Convenient? Not for me. But on my desk, it is just perfect as it sits nicely without tumbling down. The cube design is said to resemble ice cubes so that you look snazzy when applying lip balm. Seriously? lol
Softlips Cube is said to be a 5-in-1 lip balm. Can a lip balm has so much function?? Apparently it can and it is true to its claim for me so far.
- Hydrates – Shea Butter is the main ingredient added for the moisture to the lip.
- Repairs – Vitamin A, C, E and antioxidants were added to soothe and repair damaged skin.
- Smoothes – Unique emolients formulation to smoothen rough skin surface.
- Protects – Contain SPF15 to shield lips from UV Rays.
It comes in two variants – The Fresh Mint and Strawberry. The Fresh Mint has a mint scent to it but does not feel overly minty on the lips. It does leave the lips some sweet taste to it. Rather weird as I have never had a sweet lip balm on before. But not to worry. It is a gluten-free product according to the press release 😀 . I also find the cube packaging to be inconvenient whenever I wanted to put the cap back on because I need to aim the balm properly in order not to squish the balm onto the cap. You know how OCD I am with cleanliness. I really don’t like oily, squish lip balm on the cap 😛
This is the type of lip balm the grew on me. I didn’t put much hope to it but it does it’s job in moisturizing my lips well. No matter how many times I ran the lip balm all over my lips, it does not feel oily or heavy. It stays the same. I also like that it is not the soft type of lip balm that melts with heat. I think partly because of the thick cube packaging. I doubt heat will get to it lol.
