Skinfood Diet Lip Balm Review





Here is one of my favorite lip balms!: Skinfood Diet Lip Balm. I received it as a gift from J a while back. Thank you, J.


Description from the website: "This diet lip balm suppresses appetite with essential oil from fennel that possesses a natural herb aroma."

Does it suppress my appetite? I wouldn't say so. It smells a lot like black licorice to me which is definitely not very appealing but thankfully, it wears off really quickly.

Now that I've had Skinfood Diet Lip Balm for a while, the metal has gotten scraped off a bit from every opening/closing of the container. Surprisingly, it rubs off on my fingers whenever I'm holding the lip balm around the sides. A con. :/ Not that big of a deal though. Just try and keep your hands on the bottom of the tin.


Directions:
Apply desired amount on lips with brush or finger. For more vibrant color on lips, use together with a lipstick of similar color.

As you can see here, Skinfood Diet Lip Balm is super sheer but still manages to apply some color to your lips.

Here it is applied.

Would I recommend this lip balm for dieting reasons? No. But I would if you're looking for a nice sheer red color and great moisturizing effects. I also like that it's not super sticky like some lip glosses/balms are. This one is just right. The container is also super cute to boot!

Has anyone tried any other Skinfood lip balms they like? I love lip balms and am always looking for new ones to try. :)

On a different note, thank you to S for getting a bunch of different Model 21 Eyelashes for me! I've never tried fake eyelashes before so this will be a first. And to have so many to choose from....

I recently purchased some Hello Kitty fabric & Little Twin Stars fabric to make a climbing bag, cosmetic pouches, and/or makeup brush rolls from but I'm kind of afraid to learn using this fabric (I don't know how to sew). I'll have to first do test runs with other fabrics.
