I'm more fussy about lip products than anything else. After all, parabens and phenoxyethanol are hard to avoid and I often end up turning a blind eye to some of the things I put on my body. My mouth is another matter. This is where I am uncompromising about the adage that it has to be good enough for me to eat. That's why I like certified organic company, NVEY's cute little trio of lip care products: plumper, exfoliator and treatment.
I should say that I have a couple of reservations. One is the $92 price tag that will probably give me pause before buying it again (although it's a saving of $30 compared to buying each product separately). And to be really frank, this is not the world's most effective lip plumper. Still, the ingredients are all lip-smackingly good and I like the simplicity of the Lip Treatment with its nourishing shea and cocoa butters and not not much else. The Lip Exfoliator features cranberry
. There are several flavonoids in cranberries, including quercetin. According to Cornell University, quercetin has the highest antioxidant capacity of all the flavonoids. Furthermore, cranberries are a good source of tocotrienols, a member of the vitamin E family that protects the skin from sun damage.
And there's nothing to dislike as NVEY it is possible to use natural and non-harmful preservatives such as cinnamon bark and vitamin E.
