It’s no secret; we have an undying love affair with balms, particularly lip balms.
Laneige makes one of the best options, too: a Lip Sleeping Mask in four fab flavours, “Gummy Bear,” “Vanilla,” “Sweet Candy” and “Original.” But it’s the Korean brand’s latest and newest version, “Mango,” that has become our favour-flave.
Juicy and good, sweet and tart, creamy and healing, this lip mask doesn’t just have the perfect texture and mango scent, it actually works. When we rub a little on before turning out the lights at night, we know we’re going to wake up with smoother looking and feeling lips. It’s just a fact. That, along with the inclusion of a berry fruit complex to soothe and exfoliate our dry, flaky skin and antioxidant-rich vitamin C to help protect against environmental aggressors, such as the wind, sun, pollution, dirt and grime. Add in a blend of coconut oil, shea butter and murumuru seed butter and we’re nourishing and delivering lasting moisture to our pucker for a solid eight every night. The after effects last for another eight hours during the day, too.
The whole formulation is good for us actually, being free of parabens and phthalates and all. Plus, it comes with a teeny tiny spatula, so we can scoop out just the right amount of product to apply to our lips and not waste any balm. And our ROI is always the same, hydrated and nourished lips, easily, effectively, every day. See why we like a balm?!
