BY TERRY Baume de Rose

By Terry Baume de Rose

Who wants to spend $59 on a lip balm? Certainly, not I. So how did it happen? Well, it all began when I was leaving my beloved Barneys Love Yourself Beauty Event and I passed the By Terry counter. I was almost out the door when I thought to myself, I keep reading and hearing endlessly about this balm, let me just try a swipe so I can stop wondering. And that was the beginning of the end.

The BY TERRY Baume De Rose is much to my dismay, GLORIOUS!  One application lasts for hours on end, eliminating the need to reapply endlessly. Lips are truly hydrated, not just coated. And the SPF 15 filled pale pink sheen pluses your natural lip color. It’s plumping, creating the illusion of fuller lips, and it makes a great base for keeping lipstick in place. Suprisingly, it also doubles as a cuticle cream. But let’s face it! There’s no way I’m going to waste it on my hands unless I scooped too much on my lips.

The only thing I’m not a fan of is dipping my finger in to apply it. There is a lip gloss version of it but it does contain less product.  Beside, I wouldn’t want to give up pulling out this gorgeous jar  to apply it. The whole experience of using this somehow feels sensorially fulfilling. The heaviness of the jar, the heavenly rose scent, the substantial consistency, and the resulting baby soft lips. Now if your not a fan of roses, you might be a little less impressed but otherwise, this lip balm is sadly a delightfully luxurious experience. No wonder, it’s a cult classic!

From the By Terry site:

– A lipo-regenerating complex made up of Rose Flower Essential Wax with softening and astringent properties, Pastel Oil to boost cell renewal, and Shea Butter with healing and soothing benefits, supplies strength, nutrition and comfort.- The Hydroskin complex, a combination of filling spheres and active ingredients of lipid origin, provides optimal hydration.- Biotechnological ceramides deliver youthfulness and density thanks to their restructuring and firming action and their smoothing effect.

– Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, and Sun Protection Factor 15 protect the lips against the harmful effects of light and help to fight against aging.

Jao All Over Long Lasting Natural Body Goe Oil

29 Nov

I hate you Jao. Because I love you too much. I wish I had a free lifetime supply because then I wouldn’t be so miserly when applying you. At 30z a tube, it’s just not enough when all I want to do is repeatedly dip myself head to toe in a vat of you. In fact, that is one of the many reasons why I’m obsessed with this decadent indulgence. You can apply Jao’s All OverNatural Body Goe Oil anywhere and everywhere. Hands, feet, face, lips, legs, hair. This super thick cream melts into an oil and sinks right into the skin, for deep penetrating hydration that’s never greasy, heavy or sticky. And best of all, it doesn’t fade after a few hours. My skin still feels nourished and moisturized a full 24 hours later. It tames flyaways, adds shine to your hair,  nourishes cuticles and cracked heels, soothes irritated skin. All that and it’s exceptional as an aftershave cream, calming and replenishing the skin with zero irritation, zero stinging.

Derived from 28 plant fruit and flower oils and butters, Goe is 100% truly natural and organic. Just look at the ingredients.  100% pure. Hemp, Kukuinut, Chamomile, Rosehip, Meadowfoam, Grapeseed, Mango, Pumpkin, Jojoba, Shea and the list goes on. A powerhouse rich in omegas, essential fatty acids, and vitamins A, E, C, B, G, and Beta Carotene. Luckily the smallest amount goes a long way, which makes the list price of $38 go down a little bit easier.

In these wintery months, dehydrated skin becomes the norm, but Jao’s Goe will put an end to that. The results are immediate from the very first application. And the light Tahitian Monoi scent will become an instant addiction. It will lift you into a euphoric state and your skin will thank you for it!

Ingredients:

Jojoba Butter, Sunflower Oil (Helianthus Annuus), Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinesis), Monoi Tiare (Coconut Oil, Gardenia), Rice Bran Oil (Oryza Sativa), Avocado Butter (Persea Gratissima), Grape Seed Butter (Vitis Vinifera), Grape Seed Oil, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao), Meadowfoam Seed Oil (Limnanthus Alba), Rose Hip Oil (Rosa Rubiginosa), Soy Lecithin, Pumpkin Seed Butter, (Cucurbita Maxima), Mango Butter, (Mangifera Indica), Cupuacu Butter (Theobroma Grandiflorum) Avocado Oil (Persea Americana), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Hemp Seed Oil (Cannabis Sativa), Kukuinut Oil (Aleurite Moluccans), Chamomile Oil (Matricaria Chamomilla), Beeswax (Cera Alba), Calendula Oil (Calendula Officinalis), Essential Oils Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Vitamin E, Acetate, & Rosemary Extract.

Jao Lip Balm

3 Sep


New and improved 100% NATURAL lip Jao with the tag line, “Specially formulated for lip balm snobs”, should read “specially formulated for all”. Jao is made with 34% shea butter, is a long lasting petro-chemical free formula, and contains lysine, calendula and chamomile oil extracts. The new formula does not claim an SPF rating of 15 as the old formula did, more like an SPF 8, but it’s therefore more accurate (See more details on the SPF rating below). And to top it off the company was started by a Father & daughter team, amazing, in Pennsylvania where all the products are formulated without dyes, petroleum or artificial fragrances.

It’s non-greasy and when my lips are particularly chapped I even put a light layer under my lipstick. I say light because due to the Zinc Oxide it does leave your lips a bit white. Just go easy on the application. I also like to put it on before I go to bed for an overnight chapped lip healer.

Check out all of the amazing natural ingredients notably rosehip and jojoba which are rich in vitamins A, E, and C.

INGREDIENTS: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Candelilla Wax, Beeswax, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Rosehip Oil, Jojoba Oil, Zinc Oxide (Non Nano Uncoated), Sea Buckthorn, Vitamin E Acetate, Propolis, Rosemary Extract, Chamomile Oil, Calendula Oil, essential oils of: Tea Tree Oil, Anise Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Palmarosa Oil

From Jao Ltd website: *Our LipJao™ is not SPF rated because the FDA has made it difficult (expensive) for small companies to test. Since our focus as a company is to make 100% natural products, we did not want to make a chemical sunscreen anymore. Instead, we reformulated our LipJaoto include 34% Shea Butter as well as meadowfoam seed oil which both have a natural sunscreen property. We also did not want to make a pure white lip balm so added just 4% Zinc Oxide which IS, in fact, sunscreen. While we cannot claim a definite SPF number, we can approximate that LipJao’s rating is SPF-8.
