What's so special about the Moisturising Lip Balm, how does it differ from other Lip Balms on the market?
The lip balm and lip salve experience has been a greasy one since the dawn of time. Think of the slippery, synthetic qualities of vaseline and chapstick. These products simply create a barrier between your lips and the harsh outside world (think: cold air, pollution and free-radicals) but do very little to actually rebuild the skin’s barrier or hydrate the epidermis, let alone the dermis!
That’s why we wanted to create a premium product that would penetrate the skin’s barrier and effectively hydrate, repair and nurture the lips. The Moisturising Lip Balm is a non-greasy formula that acts just as your day and night creams would for your lips. It contains quality ingredients that are known to rejuvenate dry, tight and even broken skin on the lips. The balm has the double benefit of sinking into the skin and creating a fine, silky-smooth layer of hydration on top, to moisturise from within and keep out those environmental nasties too!
What’s more, we wanted to ensure the product itself is free from nasties and suitable for everyone. That’s why our Lip Balm is:
- Paraben Free
- Lanolin Free (eczema sufferers rejoice!)
- Palm Oil Free
- Coconut Oil Free
- Never tested on animals
Will the tinted formula suit my skin tone, whether I am warm, cool, or neutral?
In short, yes! We wanted to take the guesswork out of choosing a shade for our tinted Lip Balm, so we formulated it with a neutral pink undertone. This means that women with cool, warm or neutral skin will find that it suits them beautifully. And don’t forget that we offer a 30 day guarantee for any products that don’t quite tick all your boxes, too.
Can I use the Lip Balm underneath my LFF Lipstick?
All Look Fabulous Forever products are created to work in harmony with one another. That’s why we ensured that our Lip Balm formula is non-greasy and feels ultra-light on the lips. If you’d like to wear your Lip Balm underneath your favourite LFF Lipstick, our head makeup artist Sally recommends applying it liberally along with your skincare, and then gently blotting at the end of your makeup routine before applying your lipstick.
I use the LFF Lip Primer, where does the Lip Balm fit into this routine?
Good question! At LFF we strongly believe in the power of our Lip Primer to ensure your lip line is crisp and your lipstick stays in place all day. If the Lip Primer has a firm place in your routine too, we recommend applying your Lip Balm before you start your makeup routine, and then gently removing with a light hand once you get to your lips. You should ensure you don’t have any excess Lip Balm around the edges of your lips in particular, and your lips should feel clean and hydrated to the touch. Apply your Lip Primer only around your lip line to seal it, wait 5 minutes, then apply your lipstick as usual.
Does the Lip Balm have a scent?
The Lip Balm contains a number of luxurious ingredients to moisturise and soothe your lips, including:
- Cocoa Extract
- Olive and Sweet Almond Oil
- Apricot Oil
- Shea Butter
- Aloe Vera Extract
These ingredients produce a very subtle natural fruit aroma without any artificial scents. This promotes a nourishing feeling without the need for any drying added fragrances.
