MY FAVORITE LIP PREP PRODUCTS
So I tried Fresh's Sugar Lip Treatment about a year ago. My sister bought this product and I tried hers one day and fell in love. Before using this, I swore by Burt's Bees Wax. I still like Burt's, but I have moved onto something better.
I think Sugar moisturizes my lips really well. It leaves it soft and helps my chap lips. The one I picked up also has SPF15 which makes this a good everyday use lip product. The only con about this product is that it feels a bit "greasy." I over looked that at first because of the amazing results on my lips.
Whenever I apply makeup, I start with prepping the lips first. By the time the rest of my makeup is done, my lips are primed and the chap lips are gone. With Sugar, I would take a tissue to blot the access. Since its a bit greasy, forgetting this step would make my lip products slide off my lips (depending on what products I use) and it wouldn't last as long.
But a few months ago, I found my holy grail lip treatment product. I found Korres Lip Butter. I heard about it through youtube a while back, but never tried it. After constantly hearing about it, I finally picked up this Lip Saver Roll (to the left).
To my surprise, I liked it better than Fresh's Sugar. It doesn't feel as greasy. I still blot my lips before applying my lipstick/gloss, but it isn't as bad (greasy) as Sugar. It feels like the product absorbs into my lips like butter! It takes care of the chap lips and lasts a long time (I usually wear only-no other makeup products- lip butter during the week). With Sugar, I would have to reapply very frequently. With Korres Lip Butter, I rarely need to apply more. It doesn't wear off that quickly.
The only con would be that its in a jar. I carry a retractable lip brush with my lip butter at all times, but its still not as convenient as Sugar's tube form. But if you don't mind this packaging, I would definitely try out Korres Lip Butter. I use it in my kit now for prepping lips and I love it. I don't think I will change this anytime soon (unless you think there's something better out there - then please tell me in the comments).
Thanks for reading!
