What we say:
The Softlips Tinted range has an SPF 15 and is perfect for summer with its slight tint. The rose tint is quite nice, but I found the pearl a bit too silvery. I would have preferred if the tints were less shimmery; I think that would have been much nicer without the silver look. Softlips SPF 15 Tinted Lip Conditioner/Sunscreen glides on very smoothly and you don’t need to apply much for your lips to feel soft as it is very moisturising. They both smell so good, and give a slight tingle. I would definitely recommend this product, especially for summer. It also works as a great base for gloss as it gives a smooth surface and a tint too.’
This lip conditioner or sunscreen is meant to moisturise our lips and protect then with SPF 15, but at the same time giving the lips sheen. The tube is a slim stick which is almost common to all Softlips products. Personally I am not impressed with the SPF 15 Tinted Lip Conditioner/Sunscreen as it is quite hard in consistency and does not go on lips smoothly. Rose is one of my favourite scents but sadly the rose smell in this balm is nearly artificial and didn’t do anything for me. The balm has a frosted look and it does impart a sheen but in my view it does nothing for my warm complexion. Maybe it would look nice on pale, cool skin tones. Decently priced for 2gms of product, unfortunately I won’t buy it as I wasn’t happy with moisturising capabilities and was just left with tingling feeling on my lips. In my opinion it has two flattering qualities, which are the colour of the conditioner and its SPF 15 protection factor.
I have bought both of these previously and actually carry around the Pearl in my handbag at the moment. These lip balms are beautifully tinted and add a nice natural sheer tint to the lips. These balms have an SPF of 15 that makes it great for daytime wearing. As with the non-tinted lip balms they have menthol that is refreshing to the lips. These tinted balms are perfect for those who don’t really like wearing lip stick but want to have some colour. It is also a lot more affordable than many hydrating lipsticks.
