Venus & Mars Smooch Lip Detox Lip Butter Balm – Simple but Soothing
Nothing too fancy here by Venus & Mars Naturals, just smooth, nourishing, lip-loving ingredients and a pop of peppermint to cool those lips and keep them happy. What you’ve got is minimal hype but maximum lip comfort from a local product! It actually gives my lips that Liz Arden 8hr cream effect but it feels like my lips can breathe more. I’m kind of late on the Venus & Mars bandwagon but I’m glad I got on. I’m telling you, if you’re into minty balms it beats ChapStick with a TKO. As soon as you slide it on you’re like “Wow…”
INGREDIENTS: Emu Oil, Avocado Butter, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Wax, Peppermint Essential Oils, Beeswax, Vitamin E, and Titanium Dioxide (sorry bout the grainy photo, phone pic)
I know right, it looks plain but it’s a rich formulation and like almost every great oil we know that’s usually in great lip stuff is in it. However for you vegans out there you may be a little iffy considering this contains Emu Oil and right now from what I’ve researched there’s no guarantee that this is cruelty-free but they do certify the quality of the processed Emu Oil with the AEA Seal meaning its high-grade quality is approved and affiliated with the America Emu Association. I do personally wish that it was cruelty-free, it would’ve been a plus but I am relieved that it’s not petroleum-based. I like avocado butter and almost any skincare product with avocado rates high in my book. That cool blast of peppermint over the lip surface just adds to the whole happy lip experience. I’m not going to begin to excessively sing praises about this lip balm but applying it did get my undivided attention after my first impression of it. It’s a very comforting product to put on and I find myself reapplying it more often than I thought I would. This costs Php205 pesos and you can inquire about it here at their Multiply site or on Venus & Mars’ Facebook page.
