Seer Secrets Watermelon Coconut and Turmeric Lip Saviour | Review

We are all well aware of the benefits of turmeric as a skincare ingredient, but have you ever heard of turmeric in a lip balm? I definitely hadn’t, until I came across the Seer Secrets Watermelon Coconut and Turmeric Lip Saviour. Seer Secrets has always brought out interesting products with unique and effective ingredients and this lip balm is no exception. Read on to find out how it works at treating dry and chapped lips.

Seer Secrets Watermelon Coconut and Turmeric Lip Saviour | Review

The Seer Secrets Lip Saviour comes in a cute packaging – a jar with a screw-on lid which is very travel-friendly. The formula itself looks waxy in the jar but melts when rubbed between the fingers, leaving behind a beautiful oily consistency. It literally glides on the lips, gets absorbed within seconds, and does not look crusty or cakey. It provides a golden sheen to the lips and also has some tiny granules that provide gentle exfoliation during application. These granules may stand out a little on the lips, so you may want to pick them out if using the lip balm during the day.

The formula contains many nourishing ingredients such as coconut essential oil, watermelon extract, vitamin E and Cocoa butter, and therefore provides intense hydration to the lips that lasts for several hours. Of course, it contains turmeric too, which protects the lips and prevents chapping and irritation. The formula contains SPF12 as well and will therefore provide some protection to the lips from sunlight too. I also love the fruity scent of the lip balm that lingers on for an hour or so post application.

Overall, I love this lip balm because it is essentially like a lip oil available in solid form that literally melts on the lips. It provides intense hydration and protection and can really help with restoring the softness of severely chapped lips. Priced at INR 315 for a jar that will last you several months, this is a product that you must try out!

Instaglam Sugar Kiss Lip Serum | Review

If you are anything like me, the one item that you will have in excess is lipstick. I can’t live without one!!But just as a great lipstick will instantly make your day, if the lips are not taken care of, not even the best in the world can make them look good. There are many things that can lead to chapped, pigmented lips, such as smoking, using cheap lipsticks, not removing the lipstick before bed, etc. I am not guilty of the first one but am certainly guilty of the other two.
So, when I heard about a lip serum from one of my favourite Instagrammers, I knew I had to try it out. My lips used to be quite pigmented and dry no matter how much balm I used. This serum, called Sugar Kiss, from a brand called Instaglam (@insta_glam_beauty
on Instagram), who make their products by hand and from natural, high-quality ingredients only, sorted this out. Long story short, I got it and have been using it for the last few months – of course, like with any skincare products, it took time for the effect to show, but I am glad to say that this serum did what it claimed to do.
So, let’s start with the bottle.

As you can see, the bottle is a simple dark bottle with a dropper. There wasn’t an outer box in the packaging but the bottle came securely packed.
The dropper is good, picks up an adequate amount of product in one squeeze and you just need two to three drops per application.

The label has all the information (don’t mind mine, it has become nearly transparent with the passage of time) including the directions for use.
So, let’s see the ingredient list first.

As you can see, the product does not have any chemicals in it, just some fantastic oils.
The smell is very soothing, rose-like with a hint of citrus. The serum is colourless, and the consistency is that of an oil.
As for the directions for use, it is advised to be used at night so that it can work overnight and repair your lips. It can also be used a lip primer.
My experience with Sugar Kiss lip serum – I lament the fact that I did not take a picture of my lips before I started using this serum. Then I could have shown you the great difference it has made to my lips. Of course, it happened over a period of time,
but there will be an immediate noticeable difference in your lip colour when you apply the product. It is not absorbed immediately and takes a little time to sink in. Once it does, your lips will feel hydrated and soft. I generally apply the serum as the last step before going to bed and wake up with moist lips even when the weather is cold. If my lips are super dry for some reason, I wait a bit for the serum to settle in and then apply a lip balm.

I use this product mostly at night, and during the day if I am wearing a liquid lipstick, especially the super drying kind like the Sugar Cosmetics ones. In such cases, I put on the lip serum before I start my makeup. By the time it comes to applying lipstick, the serum is mostly absorbed by the lips and if not, I lightly dab it with a tissue paper. Then I apply the lipstick and it goes on smoothly. When I use Sugar Kiss as a lip primer, I do not experience that drying feeling that many liquid lipsticks have. They also don’t crumble from the inside as much as they normally do after a few hours.

So, if you are a lipstick addict like me, then make sure to get this product.It is priced at INR 550 for 15 ml and you can order it through the Instagram page here. Since you just need two drops for each use, it will last you really long. I have been using it since September, and still, 1/4th is left! It is a great deal which your lips will love.

Anatomicals Stop Cracking Up Lip Balm | Review

If you are a fan of the old school tubes of lip treatments then you will definitely love the Anatomicals Stop Cracking Up Lip Balm. This product stands out among the tubs and sticks due to its unique packaging. In the age of creamy, solid balms, this product brings a refreshing change with its glossy, almost oily texture. In fact, I would say that it is an affordable alternative to the luxurious lip oils that have made an entry into the makeup world.

Anatomicals Stop Cracking Up Lip Balm Packaging

Just like all the other products from Anatomicals, this one comes in a vibrant and quirky packaging that is bound to liven up your vanity. Texturewise, it is like an oily lip gloss, but in a good way. As it is a liquid and not a traditional balm, you will need to reapply it every 2-3 hours to keep your lips moisturized. It is not very intensely moisturizing or thick, instead, it leaves your lips lightly hydrated and glossy. As an added bonus, it smells like coconuts, a perfect scent for summer!

Anatomicals Stop Cracking Up Lip Balm Swatch Review

Priced at INR 399 for a 15ml tube, I think this lip balm is a good investment for those who do not like the feel of thick balms on their lips. It doubles up as a clear lip gloss and provides a juicy look to the lips. If you are a lip balm junkie, this product will definitely add some variation to your collection!
