When it comes to lip care, my handbag would indicate that I am a little obsessed in this area. What with the five varying brands of the same colour nude or pink lipstick and the five scented lip therapy type products. I am an external re-applier of pout products to the point of consumption. On the plus side, my lips are never chapped and rarely dry, and I can thank these little pots which I carry with me almost everywhere.
The skin of our lips which is very thin, only has up to five cellular layers of skin, contains very little melanin and has no sweat glands, unlike our facial skin which has up to sixteen layers and oodles of sweat glands that naturally produce our body’s moisturiser called sebum. Our poor lips on the other hand have zippo, zilch infact when it comes to moisture. Thankfully the fairy friendly brand Pixy came up with a magical solution, to create simple but effective Lip Balms, in a variety of yummy flavours that will perfect your pout. To make this lip balm, the people at Pixyland, took Cocoa Butter which is famous for reconditioning the skin and so creamy that it melts into the surface and underlying layers of the skin. They mixed it with Shea Butter known for being full of vitamins and fatty acids that absorb quickly to protect, moisturise and soften your lips, and for those of you that suffer dry lips, a dose of Almond oil was added for good measure.
For centuries Almond oil has been used to heal and deter dry and chapped skin, and being rich in Vitamin E, it is also contains great anti-aging properties. In order for all these goodies to work their magic on your pout, Pixy also needed a natural emollient barrier; the best in Mother Nature’s closet is Beeswax. Beeswax locks in moisture and is a brilliant barrier against environmental free radicals, like the current chilly wintry days, central heating, and all of those necessary but nasty conditions that can play havoc on your lovely lips.
You can get the perfect pout from Pixy for only €3.99 and choose from five delicious flavours.
· Chocolate - For chocoholics, delicious and scrummy
· Strawberry - For fruity fanatics, happy and zesty
· Mint - For cool and collected, clean and yummy
· Coconut - For tropical sensations, sassy and zingy
· Honey - For honeycomb lovers, soft and sweety
Pixy Lip Balm is so light, it won’t leave your lips feeling waxy and heavy, but it will leave them perfectly moisturised, nourished and tasty, with a lustrous sheen. These balms get an enthusiastic beauty thumbs up.
