Ended- Softlips Review and Giveaway


The first time I tried Softlips I was eight years old. My Grandma had just passed away after years of battling cancer. My Father walked out of her house with a few of her things for me. He had a ceramic doll, a few old, musty perfumes and two brand new tubes of Vanilla softlips. I loved the taste and the way it made my lips feel (I don't know if I had ever tried lip gloss or chap stick before this). Since that day, I have been a huge fan of Softlips.

ABOUT:

Softlips is the line of premium lip conditioners designed with skin-protecting ingredients to keep lips soft, supple and healthy. Available in several different flavor varieties, Softlips Lip Balm with SPF 20 offers superb coverage and protection from the enviromental elements, as well as a healthy sheen without the heavy waxiness or stickiness of traditional lip balms. 

In addition to the original line, there’s Softlips® PURE, the line of premium organic lip conditioners, available in new Peppermint, Acai Berry , Papaya and Chai Tea. The newest Softlips® PURE flavors, which are 100%-natural and USDA-certified organic, are formulated with the same quality moisturizing ingredients as the original organic flavor –Pomegranate– to condition the lips, helping to keep them soft and healthy naturally. Softlips PURE lip conditioners in pomegranate is available in mass retail, supermarket and drug stores nationwide for the suggested retail price of $2.99.  Look for the newest flavors – Peppermint, Acai Berry , Papaya and Chai Tea – on display in the natural beauty section of select Target and Rite-Aid stores.

REVIEW: 

I absolutely Love every flavor of Softlips that I have tried! My favorites are still cherry and vanilla, but I also loved the Sugar & Spice and Sugar Cookie from the Winter collection. I actually had to scold myself at one point for licking the sugar cookie off of my lips (hey, it was an unconscious thing!). All of the Softlips have a strong, but not overwhelming taste. I love the flavors and I can't wait to try the new Chai Tea flavor (my favorite drink!).

Another of my favorite things about Softlips is the packaging. Both the tube that it comes in, and the fact that you can buy two tubes in one package! No more having to explain why you are buying two tubes of lip balm...just tell him, "that is how it comes". I am referring to my Father who always said I wasted my money and didn't understand the need for girly things...much less two of them. Anyhow, I love the thin and long tubes. They are much more comfortable crammed into your jeans then those other brands with fat and short tubes. 

In short, I love Softlips! If you haven't tried it yet, you should go grab your favorite flavor today (or....win it!).
