Burt's Bees Lip Balm

Display shelf in Collins (June 2012)

Since I posted the photo above on our facebook on June 14th last year I've used three different types of this product. If that wasn't hint enough let me just spell it out; I'm still a fan. What I appreciate most about these lip balms is that they're moisturising and inexpensive. I've only ever tried the 'stick' packaging, which is very easy to apply.

Initially I could only find Burt's Bees in Bio Beauty but now Collins carries a wide variety of the brand. A selection of their lip balms is also available in Jenn's. My current formula of choice
Purchased from Bio Beauty

is the Ultra Conditioning one. The only con to these lip balms is that the formula is soft and in this Barbadian heat that can lend to melting.

I recommend these lip balms to everyone - yes gents, you too! - since they contain no SPF, thus people with extra sensitive lips can use them.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.
