How are you doing today? I am here to share my latest love with you all which is a must-have product for everyone. Lip balms are vital to us as our skin care regimen is really incomplete without having at least one of them. And, when we get an SPF of 25, who will say no! My hubby, who is an ardent fan of Anthony products, inspired me to try this brand. Well, thanks to me as well who made him realize the importance of using paraben free and well researched items. 😛 First, I tried face wash and deo from this brand, and now this addictive lip balm. Read further to know more about this product!
Objective: Soft lips, no shine, fresh breath.
Strategy: A matte balm formulated with resveratrol to nourish lips, stevia to sweeten breath and SPF 25 to protect.
The Anthony skincare Lip Balm moisturizes, softens and conditions dry, chapped lips. Its broad UVA/UVB SPF 25 spectrum protects lips against sun damage, has a unique formula that leaves lips matte never glossy, and freshens breath.
Method of use: Apply to lips as needed.
Tips: UVA and UVB rays are just as harmful in the winter as they are in the summertime. Don’t forget to load up on the SPF!
$8 for 0.25 Oz (7.0 g), it is the standard retail price across all online and/or in stores
My Experience with Anthony Logistics SPF 25 Mint & White Tea Advanced Formula Lip Balm:
The balm comes in an opaque and sturdy tube packaging with spout opening like our usual Vaseline lip care packaging. It has a mild smell and it tingles a bit for few minutes post application, but it is just fine with me as it subsides after a while. Moreover, those cooling and tingling sensations give a great relief in summers, believe me. I find it pretty hygienic and travel friendly too. Using avocado oil, green tea leaf extracts in a lip balm is a new concept to me and I totally love its formula.
The product is a thick and pale balm, but not too thick unlike my Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I feel the thick consistency of balm makes it stay a bit longer on my lips and hence, it does not get disappeared with a single water/tea break. I can notice balm on my lips even after gargling which is a plus point for me. Moreover, a teeny bit of balm is enough to slather on dry lips with a glossy finish and not matte as they claim, to my surprise!
But, no worries! I love it even with glossy finish just because it gives me perfect, soft and healthy lips apart from preparing them for scorching summers ahead! If you wish to apply it underneath a lipstick, the trick is to first rub it on palm then gently sweep balm with fingers on lips. I find it way better than the Bite one which costs around 26 bucks that too with no SPF and this super cool guy impressed me with 8 bucks and with its instant cooling and hydrating results. Wow!
Believe me when I say that it treated my chapped and dry lips! It literally healed those dry patches for ever, I guess. I cannot notice a single flake or dry patch on my lips now. I go for swimming and I need a good lip balm always because my lips feel wilted and strongly sunburnt and this balm satisfies even those concerns.
It not only healed my dry and flaky lips, but also prevents them from further damage. My lips feel soft, supple and less pigmented than before which certainly makes me an ardent fan of this balm. Even I have started wearing it at night to get super soft, healthy lips in the morning. Though I was initially hesitant for its petrolatum formulation, but thankfully I didn’t notice any side effects on my lips. In fact, my lips feel equally soft and hydrated even when I skip it for a day.
However, I must say that I have increased my water consumption and fruits intake, keeping in mind upcoming summers! There is no doubt this lip balm works so well for our dry lips even it ensures prolonged results. It gives long lasting relief and even if we stop wearing it, we won’t crave for the balm anymore. This is what makes it a winner to me and not to forget, its SPF is a bonus! I will say, just get it as it is a must must have lip balm for every beauty! I will always get it again & again even if I find anything better or new in the market!
