HealthyLip LaVanila is the Lip Screen you need to have

Creamy, smooth, fresh and slightly minty. That’s how I would describe the LaVanila Lip Screen from my recent purchase at Sephora. It packs more sunscreen than any other lip protection I’ve seen (at least any lip protection that doesn’t look/taste/smell like chalk) and it is free of parabens and synthetic dyes.

But here’s my favorite part. You know how many times you’ve tried to get into a pot of something – whether it’s a lip butter, solid perfume or some other potted makeup – and either given up because you’d just put lotion on and your hands were slippery or you’ve tried to pry it open only to make the lid tighter. Say goodbye to that! The Lip Screen has a twist cap with just a little half-turn to get it off. No more metal pots of lip butter that will never see the light of day! It works perfectly!

This is going to be a staple for all beach and ski trips for me from now on. And it will seemingly last forever so for $16, it’s worth the price.

Latest Sephora Purchase: Get Excited!

I was due for a fun-filled online Sephora shopping experience. I was really only looking for two things: a moisturizing face mist to take on an upcoming trip and a refill of my face cream. Both of these goals were accomplished…along with a few other purchases.

Here’s my shopping cart:

Sephora What I Bought Today

And here’s the rundown, click any of the links below to find the product and support this blog and the beauty reviews! Love you ladies! All links take you to Sephora where I purchased the product.

REN Vita-Mineral Day Cream is my daily moisturizer. It’s great in the Winter and is a nice balance of moisture without overdoing it. This will be my third bottle.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist is a new product I’m excited to try. I have a trip to the mountains coming up followed by a trip to the beach. Both environments are so hard on your skin and I think a pre-moisturizer spritzer and also using it as a daily “touch up” to my day cream is a good idea. Review definitely coming on this guy!

Billionaire Boyfriend is a test for me, hence the purchase of the roll on and not the whole bottle! I have a sample of Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend perfume and really really like it. It’s such a mix of cologne and perfume and smells great for a night out. Plus, it’s very strong so just a dab will do. I’m interested to see how Billionaire compares to the original!

The Dior Addict Lip Glow and LaVanila are two purchases in my search for a nice lip sunscreen. Of course, I’ll never get rid of my Jack Black balm, but I like that Dior adds some color. It could be a nice addition to my vacation makeup bag. We’ll see! Comparison of these two to come!
