I am a sucker for samples. I remember being in school and my Gran giving me a massive bag of Lancome, Elizabeth Arden and Givenchy samples. I was so excited to have a play with these products. This was the first of many bags that she would pass on to me. Samples are a great way to try out new brands and also products you may not have automatically looked at. Trying out samples was how I first I got to know the brand Jane Iredale. My first Jane Iredale product to try was their Lip Drink.
This broad spectrum titanium dioxide SPF 15 and gluten free lip balm came in a gorgeous tiny lip stick tube. Love it. There are so many great things about this product. SPF for starters, great for the summer approaching, but also great any time of the year. How many of you use an SPF on your face every day but what about your lips?
Lip Drink feels soothing, hydrating, moisturising, protecting and generally fab on the lips. It definitely leaves a little bit of sheen which I like. You certainly won’t have the look of Lifeguard with sunblock white on your lips, but you may note a slight white sheen sometimes. This is a sheer tone though.
Lip drink applies really easily and does not leave your lips coated in a wax. It is packed full of nourishing oils and extracts like green tea, aloe, avocado oil and carrot oil. This has more of an oily feel to it as a result which makes it easier to soak in. Lip Drink smells great and does not taste nasty either, as some SPF lip balms do. There is a hint of lemon in there but it is not overpowering or synthetic. I could easily drink after applying this and would not taste the lemon at all.
