Review: Jane Iredale Sugar&Butter Lip Treatment

I found this product a few weeks ago and I am absolutely obsessed with it! I know you hear me harping on all the time about how dry my lips get… truth be told, I find it VERY hard to find lip balms that work for me!

The skin on my lips is super sensitive and 80% of products I use, no matter how much I like them, cause my lips to crack and peel and in some cases get bloody, red and sore.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream works really well for me along with Carmex but finding ones that prevent ALL of the above is tricky.

Lips have no oil glands and only a very thin keratin layer which prevents moisture from evaporating. With weakened defences, the lips are more prone to dehydration and chapped, broken skin.

Jane Iredale Sugar&Butter Lip Treatment is a two-step product, designed to create the perfect pout with a built in exfoliator & plumper!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jane Iredale products, it is a mineral cosmetics brand launched here in 1994. It was the first full makeup line to not only offer colour enhancement but actual skin benefits.

The makeup is made without fillers and is free from the top three sensitisers: synthetic dyes, fragrance and chemical preservatives.

To use:

  1. Buff away dead skin cells with organic brown sugar crystals (tastes like caramel!)
  2. Apply the plumper! (Note you will experience a tingly sensation)

The lip exfoliator contains Turbinado Sugar, Macadamia Seed Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil which work harmoniously to protect the skin from free radical damage whilst leaving the lips silky soft and smooth.

The tinted lip plumper helps to stimulate collagen synthesis and is infused with cool Mint and Ginger which actively plump the lips and diminish fine lines. A blend of Shea Butter and Beeswax help the lips to retain healthy moisture levels.

Jane Iredale Sugar&Butter Lip Treatment is priced at €22.60 and is available online from Beauty Bay! Shop here:
