Smiley: ChapStick Hydration Lock Moisture and Renew #Review #PutYourLipsFirst

IMAG1719

With the weather being in that temperamental mood of swinging between Summer like temperatures to then wanna-be Fall, my skin and lips are also throwing a tantrum! The only thing that has been staying true is that it gets chilly in the evening and my lips seem to not get enough moisture. I even started drinking more water and the problem is not dehydration.  We worry so much about our skin’s health and I know with me, my mouth moves all day with all the chattering I do. Even though my lips are on my face, I dedicate more time to renewing the skin on my face and concentrate on my eye area, but totally forget the lips!

Chapstick has gone beyond just having formulas where you just pick the flavor you like. They have transformed their formulas and provide balms that fit everyone’s lip needs. I was able to try out one of their latest formulas from a line that has two dual ended applicators:

  • Chapstick Hydration Lock Moisture & Renew
  • Chapstick Lock Day & Night

The Chapstick Hydration Lock Moisture and Renew, is geared towards individuals that want anti-aging ingredients to improve their lips appearance and overall health. Packed with CoQ10 and Hyaluronic Spheres on the “Renew” end, this provides supple lips that appear smoother and feel heavenly, plus deliver an antioxidant punch (but in a good way)! The “Moisture” end provides Shea and Mango butters that aid in conditioning the skin and help it hold-in moisture, so they remain protected. The nice part is that Chapstick’s new balms are clinically proven to give you healthier look lips.

Chapstick’s Lock Day & Night is the stick that provides you with SPF12 for “Day” time protection and moisturizing butters. The “PM/Night” formula is the one that provides antioxidants, natural butters and Tamanu oil to replenish lips. Talk about 24 hours protection in just one tube. Easy to carry and fits perfectly in a purse, gym bag, to even your pocket.  So no excuses in not having kissable lips!

Results: I was able to try the Hydration Lock Moisture and Renew variety from Chapstick for a few weeks to see what it could do for me. I love that as the day’s weather turns into night’s different climate, I am covered and protected by just one item that I can carry anywhere. I noticed on the first day when I tried the “Renew” formula, I woke up with smoother lips. My lipstick/gloss glided on but I made sure to apply one light coat of the “Moisture” formula to continue with the protection. Think of it as a base coat/primer. I did not have to exfoliate twice a week like I usually do with a sugar scrub. That regimen was cut back to once a week and done more out of habit than need. I was happy with smoother lips and feel more confident and ready for when Winter swings around.

Price Point: The hydration stick alone (not the dual end costs $2.99. The formula I tested that has dual ends and supplies you both with the Hydration Lock and Renew,can be found as low as $2.99 (Birchbox and Drugstore), CVS had the highest at $3.69, but I found a deal today for 2 for $5.00 at Walgreens. Walgreens had the lowest price-point if you buy two.

Coupon Savings: This sweetens the deal because you can add it to the above sales to save 0.50 cents on each stick.  Print the coupon here and start saving!

New Tree Hut Soothing Foot Cream in Aloe and Peppermint

Part # 2 of this Wonderful Tree Hut Experience:

DSCN2886

We experienced the exfoliation and now comes the moisturizing, as the new skin you resurfaced needs to be nourished, and this is where Tree Hut’s Soothing Foot cream in Aloe and Peppermint comes in.

The cream has a fresh minty scent that is lighter than what I experienced with the Exfoliating Foot Scrub. This is a good thing because I don’t want everyone to be hit by a mint wave when they go near me. I am one of those girls that wears heels, sandals, toe peeking shoes but dislikes a greasy foot left by many lotions and moisturizers. The last thing I want to leave in a shoe is residue of any kind or worse, have a foot that does not stay in place while I walk. I have to look like I know what I am doing in these heels! Many times I tend to cheat and only moisturize areas that will be seen to avoid the residue dilemma. I then come home and have to do a “sock treatment” so the rest of my foot not only resembles the rest of my cheater parts, but so it gets moisturized. In comes this new moisturizer that feels like velvet when you apply it and since my hands benefited from Tree Hut’s exfoliate, I was going to do the greasy test before venturing my footy into a heel or shoe of any kind.

Greasy Test Report
Okay, after 15 minutes I forgot as I needed to type and catch up on e-mails and it was not until an hour later that I recalled why I smelled so nice. Yes, the lotion did hypnotize me it seems but my keyboard more importantly did not have paw marks. No grease or residue left behind. I had a date that evening and that meant I’m wearing a pair of my nicer heels and I did not slide, or feel like a film was suffocating my foot. My toes in these heels peek out at the tip and not only did they look pretty, they looked like I take care of them on a regular basis NOT showing evidence of my previous cheating ways. I got home and the inside of my heel was as it should be, clean and I remind you this is Summer so if anything was going to be left behind, it would have been on that very hot evening. I showered and felt my feet, which felt soft and nice……still looking pretty and like I have been taking care of them for weeks, not just one mid-afternoon.

The above alone makes me happy I found a lotion that nourishes without the muck. Then comes that feeling of fear, like “Do not stop making this lotion Tree Hut!” I’m a recovering foot lotion cheater that now has had a taste of the other side and I don’t want to go back!

Like many of Tree Hut’s products, this soothing cream contains Certified Organic Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Natural Peppermint Oil. The cream nourishes and not only provides visible results like I stated above, but your feet (and my hands) were provided with a source of vitamins and minerals. You get a soft cooling effect that feels nice after the warm exfoliating effect but not an unwelcoming cold that over lingers. Think freshness!
