Dry and chapped lips are an instant turn off for me! It’s sad that I get them all the time because I sit in an air conditioned room 24×7 (otherwise I sweat like a pig ?). I have made a habit of keeping lip balms handy all the time. When I forget to apply a lip balm, my lips tend to get severely dry and dehydrated.
That’s when I feel that my lips need more nourishment and moisturization, maybe a lip butter! Today I have two very moisturizing lip butters from Headcrafters SkinCafe.
Skincafe is an Indian brand which makes variety of lip care products. Here is a short introduction of them.
We sell made-to-order skin care products using fresh and wholesome ingredients. Unlike other commercial cosmetics companies, we create your products after you place your order. We send you something that has been crafted specially for you each time. No old stuff manufactured and packaged and then stored in a warehouse for weeks or months waiting for an order.
Mango Cheesecake Lip Butter (Limited Edition)
With a hint of Vanilla and Caramel! The aroma is of childhood summer vacations, of stolen mangoes and vanilla ice creams. The texture is firm, but not waxy – it melts and spreads on contact with your lips.
Vanilla Crème Brûlée Lip Butter
The aroma is of pure comfort, but with a hint of mischief. The texture is soft, but not too soft – it melts and spreads on contact with your lips.
Ingredients: Cera Alba (Beeswax), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Fruit Butter, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Prunus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Magnesium Stearate, Skin/Food Grade Fragrances & Color.
Price – Rs.450/- (each) | Quantity – 4gms | Shelf Life – 3 Months | Availability – Buy it here.
Lip butters are more nourishing than lip balms because they contain butters and beeswax in larger amount. Skincafe makes lip butters in lots of different flavors. All of their products have delicious names. The ones which I received are called Mango Cheesecake and Creme Brulee. Gosh, they smell like heaven!!!! I sometimes feel like taking a bite out of them, but I’m not quite sure whether they’re edible or not! ? They have the same ingredients, just the flavoring and smell is different. My favourite one out of the two is definitely Mango Cheesecake, hands down!
The texture of both of these lip butters is kind of dry-ish at first, but once you start applying them on your lips, they glide smoothly. They stay on for quite a long time which is a plus point. Mango Cheesecake looks kind of yellowish in the tube, but it does not give any tint in the swatch. Actually both of them are non-tinted, if you want to get the tinted ones, then Skincafe has those as well. Overall, I think they are going to be my best buddies for the upcoming winter season!
What I liked about SkinCafe Lip Butters
- Free from harmful chemicals or petroleum.
- Can be used under any matte lipstick.
- They intensely moisturize and nourish my lips.
- They do not feel heavy or sticky.
- They are freshly made as well as customizable.
What I didn’t like about SkinCafe Lip Butters
- I wish that they had a longer expiration date (minimum 6 months). Lip products are hard to finish, so I don’t think that any of us would be able to finish them in 3 months time even if we use them regularly. ? BTW, this is the case with most of the natural/organic products so not a big deal.
If you like using natural and organic lip products then do check out Skincafe’s lip care range. Their products are surely going to give you a luxe feel. 🙂
