Hello my beautiful people! The extreme weather swings we have this time of year in the Southeast really wreak havoc on me. I’m talking you use your seat warmer/heat in the car in the morning, and then the air conditioner in the afternoon. Evenings may or may not be cold. My seasonal allergies may or may not flare up, depending on how warm things get. So, in short, everything is very confused. My skin is dried out when I start my day, back to normal at the end of the day. My poor nose area and lips really suffer. In short, totally dry out and get flaky (especially if my allergies kick in and I have to blow my nose a lot). Not cool. I have been trying out different products to relieve all my dry patches, and wanted to share with you my Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Review.
I am a huge fan of Bite Beauty’s lipsticks. I have had the Agave Lip Mask for a while, and busted it out to get relief for my poor flaky, dried out lips. Like all products in Bite Beauty’s line, this is all natural/food grade. The mask is made with organic agave nectar and vanilla CO2 extract. Gluten and petroleum free. It smells very pleasantly vanilla, and has a slight vanilla taste. Not overwhelming like a flavored lip balm.
And like the lipsticks, it is packed with Resveratrol, a potent antioxidant.
I am not crazy about the packaging. It is a metal tube, and I can only imagine what it’s going to look like once I get about halfway through. Not pretty.
The formula is very thick and emollient. The opening in the tube is very narrow, so I find it a bit difficult to squeeze through sometimes. I have actually plunged a toothpick into the tube to try to – I don’t know??? Maybe break up some air pockets? Something to make it flow a bit easier out of the container. It’s sort of hit or miss.
I have applied this every night before bed for the past week. It is heavy, so when I wake up in the morning, it is still on my lips like the night before. I don’t know if that is good or bad? It’s almost like it provides a barrier (hence, mask). Since my lips have been so dry, I’ve also reapplied after washing my face, brushing my teeth, etc.
Has it helped/healed my dryness/flakiness? Yes. However, for the hefty price tag ($26.00), I would have expected better/faster results. I think my Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue provides the same results at a fraction of the cost.
My intention is not for this to be a negative review. It did help my lips, but I personally didn’t find it to be anything extraordinary, especially for the price.
Have you tried the Agave Mask? If so, what are your thoughts?
Again, thanks for reading! kxoxo
