I decided to try out the two balm products - Superfruit Butter and Vitamin Gels. I have Blueberry in the Butter and Grapefruit in the Gel.
Superfruit Butters- Called a multi use product that can be used on lips, nails etc. and containing whole superfruits like blueberry or acai for antioxidant power. Shea and Palm butters along with Jojoba provide the moisture.
The butter leaves a bit of an opaque cover on the lips. It's thick and creamy and has only a light blueberry scent and taste. The little flecks in the pot are said to be actual fruit pieces and you can feel them a tiny bit but really barely at all. These come in a pot very reminiscent of MAC's original screw top pots. Brought back memories.
Vitamin Gel- The gels comes in great flavors with essential oils and fruit juices in there as well as Vitamin C. It's a thick clear gel that imparts shine and is highly moisturizing. This one has more flavor than the butter and while not strong definitely smells like grapefruit. I like that it goes on thickly and seems to last long on lips. My favorite of the two balms.
I like the idea that these have antioxidants built in and are ok to be ingested. After all we basically "eat" most of our lip products so the better the ingredients, one would assume the better for us.
Are you planning to try any of the new Bite Beauty line? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
