Part of my night time routine is applying a lip balm before going to sleep. It helps avoid drying of the lips overnight. My all-time favorite lip balm, as you all know is Carmex, but recently I found an all-natural alternative that works exactly the same.
As per the website:
Break free from chemicals! V&M Naturals Smooch is petroleum-free and is only made out of the finest oils making lips younger-looking and healthy. It is known to relieve and highly moisturize chapped, even bleeding lips and protect it from sun damage.
Emu Oil, Castor Oil, Sunflower and Jojoba Seed Oil, Beeswax and Coconut Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Avocado Butter
The packaging is like your normal lip balm. I also googled it and they have a different label before. Now they just sticked to black and white packaging which I like better.
The very first time I swiped this balm on my lips, I was instantly reminded of Carmex. It smells like your usual peppermint candy and I always adore the cooling minty effect. Since majority of the ingredients are oil, you will feel a little slippery glide whenever you apply it. Not really greasy but it is not as slick as other waxy lip balms. I actually don’t bother because I feel like it’s more moisturizing that way.
Hail the matte lipstick lover inside me! Aside from using this at night before going to bed, I also apply this before wearing super matte liquid lipsticks. This preps my lips from the dryness from matte lip products.
I love that it literally makes my chapped lips smooth and supple. The all-natural and gentle ingredients also heals darkening of the lips to make it look healthy and pinkish.
Overall, I think this is a great find. If you love Carmex, trust me on this-almost the same effects minus the chemical composition.
Price: Php205 but it is discounted in BeautyMnl for only Php185
