My latest discovery comes courtesy of an article I did for style.com in which Katy Perry discusses the items in her makeup bag. Ole Henriksen's African Red Tea Exfoliating Lip Salvation was one of her must-haves. Said Katy, "this is an exfoliating lip treatment that's amazing after a long day of lipstick. It keeps my lips feeling moist and fresh, and it tastes good, too."
I couldn't agree more. The Red Tea Exfoliating Lip Salvation is both hydrating and refreshing. It goes on with the slightest shade of pink -- more like cranberry -- to the pout. I swear, I feel exfoliating crystals working their magic getting off all of the dead skin (but I could be totally wrong) although it definitely does leaves lips smooth and kiss-worthy.
A word (or several...) from the company:
"This petroleum free lip salve is filled with emollient and conditioning extracts and antioxidant-rich African red tea. African red tea Strengthens the skin’s outer layer, slows the aging process, calms and soothes the skin."
The paraben and sulfate-free lippy comes in a jar and is applied by using your finger. Dab and go.
PRICE TAG: $15.00
