I don’t know if it’s the fact that the weather has been crazy these past few weeks or if my skin is just sad that summer is almost over, but my lips have been sooo chapped lately. I have a bunch of lip balms in my arsenal to reverse the uncomfortable cracking and unsightly dry patches, but none of them have really been able to deliver lasting hydration; they all just kinda offer temporary relief without actually fixing the problem. That’s why I was thrilled to hear that my favorite skincare brand, Biossance, had just released their first-ever lip balm and knew that I had to try it.
TRY IT: Biossance Squalane + Rose Vegan Lip Balm ($18)
This 100% petroleum-free formula delivers plump, plush and ultra-hydrated lips using a blend of powerful vegan ingredients like wakame algae, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid, which also protect the lip's delicate moisture barrier and prevent future moisture loss. Like all Biossance products, the Squalane + Rose Vegan Lip Balm contains squalane, which is rich in antioxidants and offers defense against free radicals and environmental stressors.
As an established fan of Biossance's skincare product, I already knew that its lip balm wouldn't disappoint but was still surprised with how instantly hydrating the Squalane + Rose Vegan Lip Balm was. I loved that it not only left my lips feeling quenched and nourished, but also added a glossy shine and even enhanced their plumpness. I've been enjoying using the lip balm at night before bed, but will definitely be adding it to my morning skincare routine once winter rolls around.
I'm not the only one that's loving Biossance's new lip balm; the product is already being met with tons of rave reviews on Sephora and has even earned a coveted 5-star rating. Here are some promising reviews from other beauty lovers:
"Wow. Its been a long long time since a lip balm product has actually impressed me and worked instantly. This is as wonderful, effective and brilliant as my beloved ByTerry Baume De Rose that I have used for way too long to mention. Biossance is beyond impressive.I am thrilled to have this in my toolbox now. I have super dry skin and lips that need TLC everyday die to my super matte lipstick obsession. Buy it, you wont regret it." - ewiemann
"Just unboxed my Biossance Vegan Lip Balm and tried it. Overall summary is that this is an excellent product but having applied it no more than an hour ago, I'm already feeling an irresistible urge to post duck face selfies with my tingly, glowing lips. If this is happening to me, an outspoken critic of duck face, imagine what this lip balm might do to weaker-willed individuals?! Jokes aside, here's what I really like: - Beautiful packaging and presentation - Near perfect consistency. It's petroleum-free but has that vaseline texture we all know and love. - A little goes a very long way. I sense that this 10 gram container would last many months with regular use. - There's a nice kick from the essential oils. You can definitely feel a lasting tingle." - Gojada
"This made my lips super soft and lasted all night. I use some lip balms and when I wake in the morning I am dry but this kept them moisturized all night. I will plan on buying more to keep on my purse." - walker17
