Softlips Review & Giveaway


This morning I woke up and it was cold. Well, not FREEZING cold like in the middle of winter, but definitely downright chilly. I don't know about you, but one of the things I hate about winter time is getting chapped lips. You know the kind- dry, red, cracked painful lips. The ones that split and bleed every time you want to smile :(

That's where Softlips come to the rescue. With regular use, your lips can feel soft, supple and kissable. And you can prevent the bleeding and cracking that can be so painful too. Softlips moisturize and protect your lips, and come in a variety of flavors too. There are even ones that come in tints, such as rose, bronze and pearl. But Softlips are not just for winter usage either. They offer SPF 20 protection from another damaging factor...the sun. I really never knew that our lips could burn, until one day many years ago when I actually got a very bad burn on my face and lips. I had to have special cream slathered on my face and back then Mom put Vaseline on my lips to soothe them. So really, no matter what season it is-SPF protection is something you should really be using to protect yourself from the sun's harmful rays.

I was recently sent several packages of Softlips to try out. In the past, I had used Softlips once in awhile, but I was genuinely impressed with the great selection they currently have. The last few weeks, our whole family has been trying out the Softlips products and we all seem to agree on one thing: they definitely keep your lips feeling very soft and while I definitely don't recommend EATING it, if you happen to have it on while eating or lick your lips it doesn't give you a horrid taste in your mouth like some of the cheaper brands we have tried in the past. With Old Man Winter on a fast approach, we are planning on relying on the protection Softlips can give us to keep our lips feeling great.

Since I am trying to become more "green" in regards to the environment, I was happy to see that Softlips has come out with a new PURE line of organic lip conditioners. They are 95% organic and 100% natural. Using a blend of organic oils, beeswax and shea butter they nourish and moisturize your lips. Also Vitamin E is added and they are gluten free and don't contain any chemicals, parabens or pesticides. (and an added benefit...they are cruelty-free which means no animal testing!) I would love to offer my readers a giveaway of the new PURE organic line of Softlips products! And I am sure you would love to win a set of the new PURE products!

Giveaway starts today and ends September 14th at 11:59 PM EST. US only please. Please leave an email contact in your comment or a way to contact you via your blog.

Hi I am now a follower! Your blog is really interesting. As for the lip tip I liked the best, I found it intriguing what it said about men. I personally know that my man hates anything on my lips... he wants to kiss ME, not gunky stuff, lol. ;) Thanks for entering me!

A tip I found interesting at the Soft Lips website is that we should exfoliate our lips. We can do this by rubbing a damp washcloth or slightly damp toothbrush over our lips. Interesting. Thanks for the giveaway.

From the Lip Tips I learned that in the past, lip colors added gold flecks for summer shimmer, but this year's trend was to add silver flecks.

Sun Ptotection: Lips need special protection from the sun because they contain less melanin, the natural pigment that helps screen out the sun's harmful rays.
