Bite Vitamin Gel
It was one of those days few months back, where I was in need of a lip balm and tempted to try something new. At Sephora I spotted this product, each balm retailed for $21 CAD ($18 USD) but a box of 3 (full sized tubes) for only $32 CAD ($28 USD)… so I grabbed myself a box after I read the fine print :)
The list of what's not included in these balms had me nodding yes :)
NO: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan
And a couple more blurbs from Sephora.com:
"This moisturizing gel contains mood-enhancing essential oils and a high dose of multivitamins, making this lip treatment a daily must. With every application, a micro delivery of super antioxidant resveratrol provides lips with age-repairing benefits. Each gel contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine."
I love red wine, and I've heard about resveratrol… sold… but "mood-enhancing" hmmmm what if I'm in a bad mood? :)
"This product is free of synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts and made exclusively with lip nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat."
My package had three flavors: Pink Grapefruit, Blood Orange, and Mint. The scent is very subtle. Mint does not have that tingly feeling that I associate with all mint products. I also ate some :) Well it does say 'healthy enough to eat' :) flavor was good :) but it's not something I'd do on regular basis.
So overall, marketing spiel is great… I was sold on it… but the product is not a winner in my book… will use up what I have, but no repurchase.
