I’ve been using their Nighttime Lip Therapy but I do have a confession to make…I don’t just use it at night and rather, I use it throughout the day. At first I put it on before bed but I never picked it up as a routine so I just use it when I feel the need. It’s really hydrating and it smells soo good! Since I use this whenever I should try their other lip therapy products…

The Nighttime Lip Therapy is supposed to plump your lips & I haven’t really seen results for that. That’s about the only negative comment I have about this product. As for the other ingredients, I definitely feel the shea butter and glycerin that hydrates my lips. I also like the roller-ball application – mess free!

It’s convenient, affordable ($9.99), has natural ingredients, and my lips stay hydrated long after. I do recommend this product – just not for those who are looking to plump their lips!

It looks like you can buy some of their products at a local Duane Reade in NYC. If you can’t find it in other stores you can shop online on their website.
