Lypsyl Intense Protection Lyp Moistirizer

Even though winter is over, it's still very important that we continue to protect our skin especially our lips. Lip balm is the first thing I put on my face whenever I do my makeup. And, if I decide not to wear makeup, its the only thing i put on plus a face moisturizer. I was sent the Lypsyl Intense Protection Lypmoisturizer in Honey Berry to try out and give a review. I've been using this for almost 3 weeks now and now I am able to say my honest opinion about it.


WHAT: LypSyl is a family of premium lip care products. The secret behind the LypSyl is pure Swedish beeswax, ultra light to spread evenly and penetrate deeply, for unsurpassed moisturizing and protection. And the innovative packaging is uniquely designed for quick and easy application — at home, on the go, anywhere! Available in five formulations, each Lypsl formula was created for a specific lip care need.

LypSyl has been the first choice of European lip care users for generations. The brand originated in Sweden over 100 years ago, with a name derived from Swedish to communicate the soothing and natural benefits of beeswax. For the American market, the product has been reformulated with pure Swedish beeswax and an advanced blend of natural and therapeutic ingredients.

FORMULA: Lypsyl offers a variety of formula in their lip balm. The one i got was in Honey Berry.

TEXTURE: Smooth, non-sticky and it applies clear.

SCENT: To me, it has a some kind of a citrus-y smell from the Honey Berry. I like it.

PRICE: $2.99



Packaging
It's little bigger compare to Chapstick and Carmex


There is a little cute bee on the side that you push up to take the product out.

The ingredients are on the back. Swedish beeswax is the main ingredient



You get a lot of product inside, I just didn't push all the way.




PROS:
  • It has Spf 15 which is important. It will help protect our lips from the sun.
  • It's very moisturizing when used by itself.
  • I like the citrus-y smell.
  • It's very affordable and can be found at your local drugstores.
  • It's very easy to use.
CONS: 
  • I notice that it doesn't work well under a lipstick.

FINAL THOUGHT:  I really like this product. I know I'm a huge fan of my Carmex but this one is something I can use everyday. I like the fact that it has an spf 15 so it's great to use for summer. Also, it has great moisturizing properties like Avocado butter and Shea butter  that works really well for me.

On the other hand, I noticed that it didn't work well when I wore it under a lipstick. I noticed my lips felt dry with lip balm and lipstick after an hour.  But that didn't stop me from liking this product. I use it before I go to sleep ^_^

Thank you Erica Johnson for sending me this product ^_^
