Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers
Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers, organic lip moisturisers.
While the Lipstick Revolution is about feminism and about fighting for women rights, what we really need to pay close attention when lipsticks are concerned are the ingredients used for the health and safety of women around the world.
The four things about lipsticks you ought to know are –
1. Women apply lipstick or lip gloss frequently almost ingesting as much as 87 milligrams of product per day. As such it becomes mandatory to check labels for harmful chemicals.
2. Once considered a rumour that some lipsticks contain lead, it turned out to be true when the FDA tested hundreds of lipsticks following an alert issued by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. Lead mainly affects the nervous system and harms the hormonal system.
3. Lipstick pigments contain harsh chemicals that irritate the skin and lead to darkening of lips. Other harmful effects include blockage of pores, drying and chapping of lips.
4. Mineral oil substances are also known to block pores while parabens and formaldehyde used as preservatives are considered likely to be carcinogenic in nature.
Most of us are obsessed with lipsticks and the only way to tackle the issue is to swap our lipsticks for natural of organic ones. I had been looking for a range of reputable natural lip stains in the Indian market and I am extremely happy to share that I discovered Island Kiss a couple of months back.

Let me now give you a detailed review of three of their lip moisturisers –
Puerto Berry Blush
The Puerto Berry Blush has the darkest stain compared to all the others. It looks great with mascara and can be worn for a party at night or meetings or brunches during the day. Do you want to know why the fragrance is so delicious? Of course because of the ingredients, some of which are Tropical Mango & Avocado Butter, Organic Macadamia Nut Oil, Raspberry Seed Essential Oil, Organic Beeswax etc

Cherry Blossom Flores
The Cherry Blossom Flores has a slight pinkish tint which is perfect for wearing during the day. Although the base ingredients remain the same, I found this to have a creamier texture. The special ingredient in Cherry Blossom Flores includes Japanese Cherry Blossom Essential Oil.

Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender
Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender is almost transparent so you can use it whenever you want to moisturise your lips. Lavender essential oil is best to moisturise dry or chapped skin. Lavender is also great for relaxation and aiding sleep. Vanilla essential oil is known to be a great anti-oxidant and an aphrodisiac. It can help lower fever, as well as lower depression symptoms. Special ingredients include English Lavender Essential Oil and French Vanilla Essential Sugar Oil.

I love the products mainly because of the high-quality ingredients and shades. The lips remain moisturised over a long period of time. The product packaging definitely deserves a huge applause. However, one small issue seems to be the consistency of the products as it seems to be more liquid in nature than I would have preferred. The same reason also makes it smudge a little. But if you store the balms in a cooler place, the issue can be handled comfortably too.
