Lypsyl Launch Mirrored Compacts & They’re SO Cute!
I absolutely love November. Not only because it’s my birth-month. Yes, before you question it, we celebrate all month and of course, my birthday isn’t until the end of November! I also love November because it means the chunky knits, long boots and cute bobble hats eventually can make an appearance and be dusted off from their stint at the back of the wardrobe. It also means that those red cups make an appearance and all everybody talks about is Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. The added bonus, it’s not long until Santa makes his long journey too! I absolutely love Fall falling into Winter. It’s totally my favourite time of year. It’s also the time of year where I spend more time than any looking after my skin.
As the temperature drastically drops so does the moisture in our bodies. I don’t know about you, but I really suffer from chapped lips when it begins to get cold. Alongside this I can never ever get warm, that’s another story though. Back to my chapped lips, you may remember last November I headed to Artist’s Residence in London for the day. This was for the swanky re-launch of an old favourite and iconic lip care brand Lypsyl? If you didn’t catch that event you might want to see what you missed just here.
This November we’re in for another treat from the team at Lypsyl. They must know it’s the best month! Are you ready to discover what their treat is? Well, those on-trend fashionistas and beauty lovers are Lypsyl is launching four brand new mirror compacts! I couldn’t be more excited. With the same promise as their chapsticks, these four fresh scents have been designed to help you in the quest for soft, smooth and super-healthy lips this Winter.
They’re ideal to throw into your handbag. Or even to slip into your back pocket if you’re going off Pist at your favourite Ski destination. Now you’ll be able to simply flip open the lid for lip pampering on-the-go. Complete with mirror and a whole 9g of decadent nourishing SPF15 lip balm in each compact you’ll never know how you lived without yours. I absolutely love the idea of a little mirror with this lip balms. Not only do they look gorgeous, they’re matte and silky to touch. Like your lips are going to be after using the new mirror compact.
The lip balms have been specially formulated using an impressive blend of ingredients to give incredible results.
Everywhere you go, everything you read there’s always statements saying ‘use this for…’ yet sometimes the things that are great for us we don’t even know why. Let’s find out why Lypsyl have included some of their main ingredients in the lip balm.
First of all, the Shea Butter. This is a fat extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree.
Fact: Shea Butter is a skin superfood
As Shea Butter melts at body temperature it’s great for using on lips and your skin as it absorbs rapidly into the skin, meaning that the vital nutrients get working in your lips as fast as possible. It is rich in Vitamins A, E and F and helps the production of natural collagen. Which is great for natural plumping of the lips.
Shea Butter is not just for moisturising, it helps reduce inflammations and smoothes skin too.
Vitamin E is important as it helps to block free radicals, which damage the skin and speed up the ageing process. This vitamin is also a huge contributing factor in helping with skin elasticity, which means if your lips are looking a little lacklustre and in need of a boost the Shea Butter will add moisture and help with collagen production and the Vitamin E will assist in creating a bounce-back effect in your lips.
Just like Shea Butter, velvety Cocoa Butter is great for moisturising the skin especially your lips. Extracted from the Cocoa bean it smells delicious and has so many benefits no wonder Lyspyl chose to add it to their lip balm formula. It’s great for healing naturally dry skin. It stops peeling, which is perfect to stop those dry lips from cracking and peeling. Plus it’s super delicate for those with sensitive skin.
Cocoa butter is an emollient. Meaning it adds a protective layer of hydration to your lips. This is so useful for blocking the effects of very cold temperatures, sun damage or indoor heat, which can leave your lips dry. You see now why Lypsyl creators have used these different ingredients?
Finally, Aloe Vera. This is kind of the class swot. It is that one ingredient that does well with absolutely everything. Aloe Vera is most known for its hydrating properties. However, did you know that Aloe Vera helps cuts and cracks heal quickly? This is absolutely fantastic for dry and cracked lips to help restore them fast and to stop them hurting. It is able to penetrate 7 layers down for hydration, which is pretty smart. So, that’s probably reason alone for the use in the lip balms!
Doctor says so
Now you’ll understand a little bit into why Lypsyl, which is owned by a pharmaceutical company, have specifically created a formula with these ingredients. They’re proven to work on protecting and nourishing your lips. When the Doctor says it’s good, you know it’s not a beauty fad. Lypsyl has been a strong staple in my family’s Winter essentials since before I can remember and this new compact certainly steps up to the oche for functionality and style.
The team behind Lypsyl are not content with just one scent, they have launched four different scents for you to choose from. Or if you’re like me, you’ll have to have them all, one for each handbag. You know the drill top shoppers!
All the scents
The four scents are:
- Original – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This warm oriental fragrance has top notes of orange and lemon and soft white florals.
- Zingy Mandarin – The allure of the bright, juicy blend of mandarin and mint is sweetened with a touch of vanilla.
- Luxurious Vanilla – My personal favourite, a sweet and luxurious vanilla is interwoven with creamy caramel accords, and finally
