Lavshuca Jelly Pot Essence is probably one of the best lip products I’ve run across lately outside of the new Hourglass Cosmetics No 28 Lip Treatment Oil that just released.
This little pot of joy was launched with the Lavshuca Spring 2013 Collection and I just recently got my grubby little hands all over it.
Take a look.
I had a friend purchase this for me from Japan for about 500 yen on sale so I would say expect to pay around $12-$15 for it from online shops. I believe Adam Beauty might already have and his prices are typically very competitive so check there first.
If you can get past the pot packaging (which I don’t like either) you’re in for a TREAT. Of course, that depends on whether or not you actually like thicker lip treatments. This is a SUPER hydrating lip treatment that resembles the thick texture of honey with a high shine finish that’s comparable to my beloved Too Faced Mirror Mirror. It doesn’t have any flavor and contains sunflower, sweet almond, and jojoba oils. The texture does resemble a jelly of sorts hence the name. It’s very thick but doesn’t feel sticky or tacky on my lips.
I think the thicker texture will be a turn off to some folks but personally I LOVE it. It has a SUPER glossy finish on my lips and keeps them soft and moisturized through the wear. I’ve taken to wearing it alone and on top of lip stains and lipsticks as well as it adds the perfect finish to my lipstick creating a mirror-like shine that’s breathtaking.
I admit the packaging makes it unfriendly to travel and touch up with. I wish they had put it in a tube of some sort as that would be way more friendlier to use and tote around.
Overall, I love this stuff packaging grief and all. If your lips are super dry or you’re looking for a super glossy finish to add to your lipstick Lavshuca Jelly Pot Essence is the way to go!
I tried to show what it looks on lips but you really can’t capture all that amazing glossiness in pictures. Or at least I can’t, I’m such a sucky photographer! :-/
