We may be seeing signs of spring at last but that doesn’t mean our lips are ready for spring. While my lips are softer and there are no cracks now that the bitter winds and cold have died down, I still want to keep them in shape. That’s where the ZUZU LUXE LIP RX KIT comes in. This was sent to me months ago and I’ve been using it ever since.
In the great mesh cosmetic bag are two Zuzu Luxe products, the Lip Exfoliator and the Lip RX Stick.
Zuzu Luxe Lip Exfoliator is a gentle yet thorough exfoliator for your lips. It has scrubbers in there but they are natural and not harsh. I try to use this daily when I’m getting ready for the day (though I do forget). Apply it like you would a lipstick and then use your finger to move it around your lips. I rarely have to wipe it off, it seems to quickly absorb without leaving anything behind. You could also use a washcloth to get extra exfoliation with this.
The Lip RX Stick that comes in this $24.95 set is a terrific lip balm that I love under lipstick. It’s non-fragranced and it has no taste so it’s great for me. It looks like a lipstick so it’s a little classier to apply than my typical plastic tubes. It’s smooth and makes my lips feel highly moisturized.
To top it off they come in a great silver mesh cosmetic bag that will make your daily travels a joy. I love seeing what’s in my bags or else I forget!!
Zuzu Luxe and Gabriel Cosmetics are the same company and share a website. Their products are not only cruelty free but they are vegan besides making them good for all consumers who have lips. They support many important movements like Ocean Conservancy, Glutton Free Tolerance Group, American Breast Cancer Society and more. By supporting them you are also supporting these vital groups. There’s a store locator to help you find these two brands. In my area there are two major markets (Whole Foods and Plum Market) that I can find some locally.
It may have taken me too long to officially review them (I did mention them though in my Top Ten Winter Helpers review) but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been getting a lot of use. I’m a huge fan of lip balms and now I’m a fan of this Lip Exfoliator too. Have you ventured into Zuzu and Gabriel products yet? — Marcia
