There's something about the sleek, slim, pinkie-sized package of Softlips lip balms that I've always loved. Of course it's been quite awhile since I've slipped a Softlips balm into my pocket, since I go for organic or natural products, especially when it comes to my lips! I found that the old versions of Softlips, while tasty, have some questionable ingredients like oxybenzone and BHT that I wouldn't recommend. But I'm thrilled to say that Softlips has turned over a new, natural leaf- and the results are fabulous!
Softlips now offers a collection of 100% Natural lip tints and glosses (which you can enter to WIN) and certified organic lip balms (these look just like the ones you remember) from their new PURE line.
The PURE collection is free from preservatives, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, mineral oil and gluten.
The first thing you notice about the certified organic balms is that, rather than artificial-tasting cherry, you have natural papaya, pomegranate, chai tea, acai berry and peppermint flavors. The subtlety of the flavor is wonderful, as is the fact that you can apply the beeswax and shea butter without worrying about toxins!
The natural lip tints, sheer tinted glosses and lip butter come with SPF 15 protection from zinc oxide (one of the safest and best forms of sun protection). These, too, are made from a beeswax, shea butter or natural seed oils (jojoba, safflower).
For those who were hooked on Softlips before, it's once again time to stock up on these lovely little balms, priced right at $2.99 (for Softlips PURE organics) to $5.99 (for Softlips PURE 100% Natural colored glosses).
To enter the giveaway to win 3 lip glosses, 3 lip tints, a lip polish and a lip butter from the Softlips PURE 100% Natural line (enough to stock your purse and keep your lips soft for a very long time!), just sign up for the Beauty Is Wellness newsletter in the box on the homepage. I know you'll love the tips, recipes and special offers in the monthly newsletter as well!
One winner will be chosen at random on Tuesday, June 22nd.
'Til then, you can find Softlips PURE in your local drugstore!
