Alert! All-Natural Lipstick in Town: SMOOCH STIXX

There is something empowering and totally sexy about great lipstick. Whether you need to dress up in a casual-day-look or touch up a glamorous night-out-look, your lipstick will be your best companion in many occasions.

It is important to keep in mind, however, that more than any other body parts, our lips are really sensitive to aggressions. The skin of our lips is really thin and has no oil glands to protect them. This is why we should give our lips all the love and extra care they deserve. Prolonged exposure to aggressions will soon darken, shrink and dry up our smackers.

When doing the research, you will be surprised to find that so many ingredients in conventional lip products are actually very drying and damaging to the delicate skin on your lips. They may provide short term moisture and satisfaction but in the long run, will just make you more and more dependant on them. Lipsticks are no exception, there are usually filled with petroleum-based emollients and waxes, artificial fragrances, synthetic preservatives, and artificial dyes that will soon make your lips chapped and dried.

As health and eco conscious consumers, you might be on the look for all-natural lip products that feel safe and care for the planet. My latest find in this category is a locally made lipstick called SMOOCH STIXX, made of high quality natural and organic food grade ingredients only.

SMOOCH STIXX formulation is simply genius! The manufacturer was able to give it a matte colour finish without affecting lips moisture. It is long lasting and highly pigmented. The lipstick is made of organic oils, flower and fruits pigments, natural scent and butter and it is infused with vitamins and coupled with nourishing extract. Sounds divine, right? It is! All these botanical and mineral ingredients nourish your lips and truly contribute to your natural beauty.

SMOOCH STIXX is now my personal lipstick of choice. It is available in many colours and shades, so there is always something fit for my mood. I also make sure to prep my lips such that they are always ready for my favourite non-toxic lipstick. It is known that lipstick wears more evenly when lips are moisturised and smooth. Here are my 2 best tips on how to achieve those perfect smooth lips without the nasties and without going broke:

Step 1: Exfoliate

Dip a washcloth or soft toothbrush in warm water and lightly buff your lips. Or create a all-natural lip scrub by combining 1 teaspoon of sugar with 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey. Apply on your lips and rub gently. Leave on for a couple of minutes, then rinse off.

Step 2: Moisturise

Replace your everyday lip balm with coconut oil. Dab a few drops of the oil onto your lips several times a day when they’re feeling dry.

Beauty can be natural, safe and gorgeous. Thanks for great companies helping in changing the face of beauty one product at a time.
