Roughly about 2 weeks ago, for the first time in my life I had allergy attack on my lips. Yeap. My lips. It is not as sexy as Angelina Jolie as my friends said it is. It is so swollen, dry, tight and awfully painful. I quicky found out that the cause to the allergy attack was the Pearl Drops Professional Intensive White Toothpolish. Who would have thought! Toothpaste causing allergy. I do know I am allergic to some whitening products. But toothpaste? This is the first time. Two days after the allergy attack, I flew to Singapore. I grab none of my beauty products but two lip saviour. They are Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil and this Lip Pure Lip Balm. The lip oil from Clarins works for my dry lips but later on I kinda got tired with the stickiness. Thank goodness I grabbed the Lip Pure Lip Balm along. Initially I have no intention in cracking into another lip balm to use but because of my lip allergy and how it saved my lips from the pain, I have to come in here and tell you about it.
Lip Pure Lip Balm is formulated with food grade ingredients, 5 types of essential oils, 3 types of honey extracts and plant extracts. Phew! That is as natural as you can get for a lip balm. The concoction of 5 natural essential oils such as Argan Oil, Marula Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil are the main saviour to my lips. They product the best (in my experience and opinion) moisturizing and nourishing benefits. This Lip Pure Lip Balm reminds me a lot of the previous Orange version, which I reviewed here before. The previous one has a hint of Orange scent to it and this new one is scentless. I have to mention that the old one melts in my hot room. This one? I have it in my room for near to 3 weeks now and it is still like new 😀
Lip balm can be a little daunting in a sense that some leaves a white mark on the lip surface, some dries the lip even more, some causes the skin to peel off and so on. I am happy to report that this new Lip Pure Lip Balm does none of that crap. It has anti-aging properties as well thanks to natural plant ingredients namely Meadow-foam Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil and Rosemary Leaf Extract.
I was relying a lot on Clarins lip oil as the gooeyness of the product sort of soothe the pain my lips. After a few days, I got tired of it. I was desperate for something moisturizing and light. I have 11 brand new unopened lip balm and I finally decided to open this up to use mainly because this is unscented, colour-free and I remember how good Lip Pure was in terms of moisturizing. Anything with heavy scent and colour will send a sharp pain to my lips. Now I am glad I have this, which I do not know what to do with it last time lol.
Lip Pure Lip Balm is available at all leading pharmacies and major supermarket outlets nationwide.
