Labello Lip Butter Raspberry Rose

Butter me up

The Labello lip butter range is my go-to winter lip treatment. I apply a generous amount at night and in the morning I have baby soft lips. Plus it comes in a cute tin. The smell is great and the colour is like milky pink. Although its a bit pricy it’s kinda worth it. The raspberry rose comes in a pink metal tin. That makes it convenient to carry around. The texture is a bit thick, not like your normal Labello. The only down side is that you would have to put your finger in to use it. I love this product.

Its all in the eyes

The absolute matt by Catrice offers 6 shades, but I personally enjoyed the darker shades. What I love is the texture of this eyeshadow and that it looks more natural. The shadow itself goes on well and the colours seem to be well-pigmented. The brush is also a great feature as it allows for slight blending. The product is great for an everyday use and the packaging simple but very helpful to see the colours better.

Avène Thermal Water Spray

Fountain of soothing

The Eau Thermal spring water is especially helpful to soothe irritated skin. It’s safe to use on sensitive and hypersensitive skin. It can be used for a wide range of things like sunburn, facial redness and razor burn. When spraying the mist, you feel immediate relief as the cooling water helps irritated itchy skin. Comes in a 150ml white aerosol can with orange and black writing. Very useful when dealing with irritation a must for anyone.

Lipidol Sunscreen Oil

No fun in the sun

I didn’t find this oil in particular very protective, even though it has an SPF 20. The smell was very nice very similar to basil. The oil lasted the whole day and the consistency was not too thick. Although the oil is more of a suntan oil it doesn’t really offer any tanning. So if you looking for sun protection I suggest a sunblock instead. Overall not too thrilled with this product.
