Blogmas: Skincafe Holiday Special Lip Butters Review – Gingerbread Latte, Spiced Pumpkin Latte, Peppermint Latte

With Christmas around the corner, my house has finally started looking a bit festive after all the unpackings had been done. While the baking stuffs are getting ready at the Kitchen, I took my time to bring out all the Christmassy stuffs and started making my bedroom Christmas themed.  You can smell Christmas literally in every corner of my room, including me. Guess how?

Well, I’ll answer that. One of my beloved all-natural, handcrafted brands SkinCafe launched their Christmas themed lip butters. They call it holiday special, but I’ll continue calling it the Christmas Special. So the lip butters they came out with are- Gingerbread Latte, Spiced Pumpkin Latte and Peppermint Latte.

You might think that the price is a bit high for a lip butter, so let’s tell you how it becomes all the more reasonable. In a couple of my previous posts, I wrote about my lip balm addiction, how I used to reapply lip balms within 15-20 minutes and that I always had 12-15 lip balms scattered everywhere from my under my pillow to my numerous hand bags for my convenience. About a couple of months ago I learnt that it’s actually an addiction that no one talks about. Lip Balms that contains humectants such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin makes your lips permanently dry.  The more you use those lip balms, the drier your lips will get making you reapply more often, which I figured was my case. I immediately started using lip balms as less as possible which was hard as my lips would get dry and chapped as apparently it was harder to check out the ingredient lists of all the lip balms that I proudly own. As soon as I thought it’s becoming a little easier, along came winter making it all the more hard. And that’s when I was generously sent out these Christmassy Lip Butters which changed the scenario.

And if you are still not convinced, just look at the list of essential oils used to make these babies. No wonder I can get away without reapplying within 3-4 hours.
