I am all about the bold lippie. Mattes, stains, creams, brights, vamps, you name it. Most of these, I have to remove with makeup remover. And then, there's the drying weather.
Let's not forget the smooching, either.
My lips are in need of some rehabbing, and when I got to try Teadora's Nourishing Lip Butter, I was excited.
But, but, it's a pot. I don't *do* lip stuff in pots. Or, shall we say, I didn't. I will for this stuff. It's the most unique lip stuff I've come across. It's almost the texture of a shea butter - hard, and a little gritty in the tub.
But if you rub your finger over it, it melts and then you can apply it to your lips. For more exfoliation, scrape a little bit of the balm out, and you'll get a more gritty texture that melts away after a few minutes.
I've been using this for weeks now, and I've barely made a dent in the tub. For $15, it's a bargain!
The products at Teadora are made with their proprietary Elixirs - Rainforest Youth, Hydration, and Restoration, each containing ingredients to target a specific purpose. What's also important is what their products DON'T have - no parabens, synthetic fragrances, silicone, gluten, Phlalates, sulfates, harsh chemicals, or animal products. Their products are 100% vegan, and they do no animal testing.
Not only does the lip balm feel great, taste amazing, and is made from great ingredients, Teadora is committed to doing business in a socially responsible way, by using ingredients that are fair trade sourced, sustainably harvested, carbon reduction focused, recyclable and biodegradable. They are also involved in efforts to help preserve the Amazonian Rainforests.
Teadora Lip Butters come in two versions - Rainforest at Dawn, and Rainforest at Dusk. The Dawn Lip Butter is in a flavor they call Laranja, and is a light, sweet orange. It is DELICIOUS. Totally addictive. Dusk's flavor is called Acai-Acu, and is a berry-chocolate blend. Yum.
As always, you know I'm loving something if I'm inspired to do nail art! I based this on their logo - in color on my middle finger, and the black and gold version on my thumb. To do this nail art, I used Milani Black Swift, Sally Hansen/Revlon white, Sephora X Enriched, A Rhyming Dictionary Polish Show and Tell, China Glaze Metro Pollin-tin, and Urban Decay Bang.
Teadora, which means, "I adore you" in Portuguese, or to purchase any of their butters, oils, cleansers, or other skin care products, you can find them on their website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube.
