Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer Review and Prize Pack Giveaway ~ CAN 10/31

| October 10, 2013 | 87 Comments

I am a self-professed lipstick addict.

At any given time, my purse has four or more lipsticks ranging from shocking pinks to demure nudes, deep plums to classic reds and everything in between. Although I always purchase moisturizing products, my lipsticks often dry out my lips. No lipstick looks pretty on chapped lips, regardless of how gorge the colour really is. When the opportunity to review Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer presented itself, I was all over it – but I vowed to put it to work. I ditched my regular lip moisturizing regime (which includes lip treatments and scrubs), and decided to only use my Softlips tube for one week.

The verdict? Well, you’ll have to read on.

The first thing I noticed about my Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer (other than the bright packaging) was the cheery, watermelon scent. I’ll admit, I originally feared it may be too strong but the scent is barely noticeable once applied and thankfully, there is no flavor to interfere with snacks or coffee. I like the simple, compact nature of the tube itself – it’s so thin it slips perfectly into the pocket of even my skinniest jeans without leaving the dreaded “lip balm bulge”.

LOVE that bright packaging!

LOVE that bright packaging!

The product itself glides on smoothly, and makes your lips immediately feel like butter. I especially appreciate its holding power – I don’t find myself needing to reapply constantly, even after drinking a cup of coffee or chowing down on my lunchtime salad. It doesn’t make for a great base for lipstick, as it seems to make the colour fade a bit, but it’s a small price to pay for soft lips (see what I did there?).

In addition to the immediate moisturizing effect, I love that Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer gives your lips a light sheen, so you can see there’s something on there. I found myself skipping lipstick pretty regularly all week because I liked how my natural lip colour looked so much, but I did still whip it out on occasion. Because of my lipstick addiction, I kinda-sorta wish that Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer had a punchy watermelon-y tint to it, but I’m pretty in love with the product itself.

At $4.99 for a double pack (You can pick up Softlips at Walmart, Target, Shoppers Drug Mart and Lawtons, to name a few), it’s far more affordable than the expensive lip treatments I’ve been using and equally as effective on dry but well-maintained lips. To give you an idea of how I’m using it, my regular lip moisturizing schedule is first thing in the morning, after each meal and before bed with as-needed applications throughout the day. I love the scent so much, I put it on when I didn’t need it but wanted to smell watermelon-y again!

I award bonus points for it having SPF 20 built right in, as I actually have to purchase products with sunscreen in it anyway (tinted moisturizer, hair products, etc.) or else I’ll never get it on! I’m lucky if I get SPF on my face most of the time, much less my lips so I definitely appreciate how easy Softlips makes it to take care of your pout!

Since my lips were in pretty good condition starting out, I can’t say for sure if Softlips will completely take over my lip care regime, but it’s definitely found a permanent home in my bag as my new go-to lip moisturizer. I really like the watermelon scent, but if you’re not a fan of watermelon you can still find a Softlips product that would suit you as they have a wide array of products, which one lucky winner will get to try out!

At the end of the week, I’d give Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer a glowing recommendation for all of my lippy ladies (and lippy young men, too).

Enjoying "kissable" smiles, with SPF coverage on a sunny day!
