My friends over at Borba have done it again. Only this time, instead of something that is wholeheartedly silly, they almost produced a cosmetic that is perfectly sensible. I am reminded of that song: "....and then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like...". This time Borba has put wool into a lip salve. The only rational question is why.
Why not have left well alone. Honestly, I never thought I'd say this about the company that brought us vitamin gummies, Borba's Cashmere Fibre Lip Kix is not at all bad. It has beeswax (which I don't approve of because it is drying and forces you to keep putting on the product leading to a phenomena known as lip salve addiction), but otherwise has nice useful things like vitamin E, pomegranate, niacin, shea butter and retinyl palmitate.
And then they go and spoil it all by adding hydrolyzed wool. Cashmere. Right. Borba, do me a favor; sell me candy with vitamins
, sell me water with water vitamins
, just don't try to pull the wool over my eyes.
