Gifts from Labello

Labello is one of those brands I've been using ever since I was little. I even remember collecting tubes of their empty lip balms at one point. I had a whole shelf of them! I guess I've always been a little weird...
I have to admit, for the past few years, I've been trying out so many different brands that I completely forgot about Labello. But the lovely PR team contacted me recently, offering me to try out some of their (new) product, and of course, I couldn't say no! I'm happy to report that the products are even better than I remember them to be.
My favourite one of the bunch is Coconut Lip Butter with Shea Butter and Almond Oil. It comes in a pot, so it's not necessarily the best product to use on the go, but it works amazing as a pre-bedtime treatment. It's buttery, moisturizes your lips, and smells heavenly.
The other two come in a tube packaging. They both feel buttery and make your lips feel moisturized as well. Fruity Shine Cherry also gives a lovely glossy tint to your lips, which makes it perfect for when you're wearing makeup and don't want to deal with potentially drying lipsticks. And it smells great! Like cherries, as the name suggests.
Repair & Beauty was the only lip balm from the package I wasn't too sure about when I first tried it on. It says that it repairs chapped, dry lips and gives them a healthy rosy glow, which is great, but since it contains menthol, it also gives you the tingling sensation that I hate from the bottom of my heart. Having said that, I actually did end up using it on a regular basis. The tingling sensation is luckily very mild and disappears rather quickly, so I don't even mind it anymore.
I will for sure be picking up more Labello products in the future. It's a shame I haven't been using them for the past few years because they truly are great.
