Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

I bought the flavor vanilla bean. It has a slight flavor to it, but not overwhelming.

At first, I found the balm to be moisturizing and didn't feel heavy, but afterwards and with repeated use, I found it to actually dry my lips. I believe this is because of the coconut oil, which dries out my skin. For those of you who don't have a problem with coconut oil, this balm may …

Lotions/ Creams - Live Clean - (baby) - Non-Petroleum Jelly

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/18/2017

I needed to find a non-petroleum jelly after reading that petroleum could contain harmful contaminants.

Live Clean is a the cheapest alternative I could find at round $5-6 a small jar. That being said, you can see that it is still multiple times the price of Vaseline. However, if you consider it to be a lip balm or a specialty moisturizer, the price is not bad.

Purely …

Head and Shoulders is a great shampoo whether you have dandruff or not. I do not have dandruff, so I can't comment on it's ability to control dandruff, but I use it simply because it's a great shampoo.

A little goes a long way and it leaves my hair shiny and soft.

Major downside is the strong smell, even emphasized by the bottles "scent technology" …

Lipstick - Marcelle - Rouge Xpression Lipstick (All Colors)

Shade - 820 Pink Mademoiselle

Color payoff is good. Lipstick has no smell or taste, which is great. Texture is creamy and somewhat moisturizing, but it doesn't last long.

Packaging is good quality, I like the square tubes so they don't roll around.

Price is $11+, so it's a higher than most drugstore brands.

I got this one is the trio value pack at 40% off - it's a very good price when packaged with the liquid foundation and concealer. On it's own, the price is just ok.

Powder gives medium-light coverage but does fee a little heavy. Color range is very small, but it seems to work for my fair-medium skin.

I apply with my own foundation brush, as the brush included in …

Lipstick - Mineral Fusion - Sheer Moisture Lip Tint

Dec/18/2017

This lip crayon is a little pricey at around $10-15 CAD each. It is however certified by EWG Skin Deep so you know the ingredients are safe. That being said, I believe this product contains vanilla mint which I found to irritate my lips and make them dry. It feels like its moisturizing at first, but over time, the mint dries my skin.

Other than that, the pigmentation and feel is OK …

I have the color Haute Pink. This is a great lip liner that is creamy and pigmented. I actually use it to color the whole lip and it lasts quite well. The price was $3.99 but I got it on sale for $3.18 - super deal! It is also rated a 1 on EWG Skin Deep so you know the ingredients are safe.

The only downside is that it has a slight taste and smell like crayons.
