Dry lips.

Chaffed or cracked lips are a call for moisture. Since lips don’t have oil glands and are just an extension of the delicate membranes in our mouth, they’re sitting ducks for abuse. We abuse them more by using petrolatum-based lip balms which interfere with the lips’ ability to hold on to the moisture they do have. (Ever wondered why the more you apply lip balm, the more you need to apply.) The answer is to use lip products without petroleum-derived ingredients. That also goes for lip gloss, by the way. Most glosses get their shine from petrolatum. Ours comes from a mix of organic vegetable oils.

We know that if you wear lipstick every day you’ll end up eating five tubes a year. We think we’ve inadvertently added to the statistic. Our newest exfoliator/plumper Sugar&Butter contains organic brown sugar and is so lip licking good that we’ve had reports of people snacking on it.

But it’s so much more than a snack. It’s a sure fire way to luscious lips. First, slough off any flakiness with the organic brown sugar lip scrub which also adds its own moisture and then get ready for the plumping.

Flip the tube over and feel the way the shea butter coats, moistens and protects your lips. In a few seconds, you’ll feel the plumping begin. Formulated with delicious ginger extracts and a natural peptide which has been clinically proven to stimulate collagen synthesis, I can promise you that the feeling it gives your lips is addictive. You honestly will see and feel the difference..

Hi jane! I reviewed Sugar&Butter on my site as well. I gave it as Christmas gifts this year and everyone is wanting another tube already! What a great stand-out product!

Thank you for sharing your comments on the Sugar&Butter. Watch for our new "Just Kissed" lip plumpers in the Spring!

Hi Jane, I have your complete range of make up which I love.
I only have one concern which is that the SPF lip drink really dries out my lips. Any reason for this? Will it stop happening with prolonged use? I dont have dry lips normally.
Thanks, Jodi

Dear Jodi,
Thank you for sharing your comments on the Lip Drink. Like all of our lip products, Lip Drink contains no petroleum-derived ingredients to dry out the lips. It is formulated with a combination of natural waxes and oils to moisturize, condition, and protect the delicate lip membranes. I am sure you will find with continued use (and not using other petroleum based products),your lips will improve.
