Review: Lavera Lipgloss

(4.5/5)

I love lip gloss, and lip products in general. I always find myself buying new lip glosses and balms. (I bought a Yes to Carrots lip balm in berry today and I can’t wait to try it!) Anyways, it doesn’t matter if I need it or not-if I see it & want to try it, I am so buying it!

Since I have a lot of  lip products, I often find that I buy one, use it for a week or so, then forget about it. It is rare that I find one that is awesome but when I do- I keep it with me…like it is always in a pocket of the jeans I am wearing or in my purse or makeup bag.

Lavera Lipgloss Trend in No. 4 is fabulous! It is one of those lip products that I find myself reaching for over and over again. It is a clear gloss with a distinctive, gorgeous gold shimmer. I personally enjoy wearing it alone on my lips or on top of my Badger balm. However, since it is clear and shimmery, it would look perfect on top of your favorite lipstick.

There are so many great things about this gloss:

*looks & smells GREAT

*moisturizing

*made with organic jojoba

*It contains NO synthetic preservatives, perfumes, colorants or mineral oil  (Awesome!)

*Not tested on animals

I especially love this product because I think it is a great holiday pick. The clear with gold shimmer is so pretty and wearable for everyone. Try it out for yourself, or make it a gift!

Review: Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

Overall: (4.5/5)

Badger cocoa butter lip balm is awesome! It makes my lips feel so soft. Right now, I am using the creamy cocoa one.

I love this stuff for these reasons:

-It is organic.

-My lips feel great. The cocoa butter and extra virgin olive oil are excellent moisturizers.

-It smells so good-like chocolate! The scent is light and not overpowering.

-Price. I bought my lip balm at Wegman’s for under $5! You get a great amount of lip balm for that price. It is such a good deal!

-Tastes.Like.Chocolate. Yum!

-I love the packaging. There is something nice about applicating lip balm from the tube that Badger cocoa butter lip balm comes in. It is wider than a traditional lip blam tube (think Chapstick) and the balm goes on smoothly.

-Fair Trade: It just feels better when you know that something you are purchasing or using is a product that contains fairly traded ingredients! New to the term? It means that the people who are producing the ingredients in developing countries are getting a fair wage or amount for their work and products.

I know that you can buy this lip balm on the Badger website:  http://www.badgerbalm.com/default.aspx. I checked the website because I can’t wait to get some of the other varieties of the Cocoa Butter Lip Balm, especially Cool Mint and Lime Rocket.

Also, the website says that Badger is offering 20% off all fair trade products this month because it is Fair Trade Month. I would definitely recommend that you get this lip balm! It would also make a great gift!

Just a little tip-I keep a lip balm in all the pockets of my winter coats and jackets so that I never have to worry about having dry/chapped lips (just make sure you take it out before you do the laundry)!

Let me know what you think about Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balms!
