Worth The Hype: Korres Lip Butters

When I first started making YouTube videos (almost three years ago now!) there was a definite buzz about the Korres lip butters going around the online beauty community. I never caved in and bought one so I didn't know what all the hype was about... until now. I am therefore massively late on the bandwagon in raving about how wonderful these are, but in case you're in the same boat as me... read on!

These super-soft buttery balms melt as soon as they come into contact with your skin. They are wonderfully moisturising and leave a lovely hint of colour on the lips. They all have a different shade, ranging from sheer nudes (Guava & Jasmine) to deeper berry and plum tones (Plum & Wild Rose). Each shade matches up with a different scent which seem to be of the perfect strength - strong enough to detect, but not obnoxious to the senses.

I have three of these little beauties... Jasmine, Mango & Quince. I adore them all but at a push I'd have to say Jasmine is my favourite. It smells like cookies to me and leaves your lips a gorgeous nude-pink shade.

As Korres is a 'natural' brand, the lip butters are formulated without parabens, sulphates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemical, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan. I'm not overly conscious of avoiding all of these in cosmetics, but for an every day product like lip balm, I think it's good to do so.

You can pick these up from feelunique.com for £7 including delivery, or from Sephora internationally.
