Kopari Coconut Lip Love ($10) is my lip balm or lip treatment if you will of choice this week! I’m sick and I’m a big baby about it. I hate being sick! I could whine all day about it but needless to say my skin is suffering especially my lips which are dry, cracked, and feel like I ate a ball of cotton.
I picked up the Kopari Coconut Face The Day & Night Kit earlier this month and it contains a full-size Coconut Lip Love! Yay! Since my lips are all kinds of dry and cracked this was a good time to use it.
Here are some thoughts!
Kopari Coconut Lip Love gets a big yay from me. This 0.35 oz lip balm comes housed in a squeeze tube with a slanted applicator. They load it up with coconut oil and shea butter but it isn’t a thick texture in the least which I loved! Earlier this month, I tried out Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Lip Balm and I was a little disappointed how very thick it was. This is more of a lipgloss formula and I was quite pleased with that has it leaves my lips hydrated but also with plenty of shine.
Don’t me wrong, I like thicker formulas especially when I want to treat my lips to something mega hydrating while I’m sitting around watching TV. Or even go to as a nighttime treatment although things can get messy when you sleep in lip balm! None the less, I have nothing against thicker lip balms and yes, I even like them.
But when you’re sitting at your desk and you’re about to see clients. Well, I don’t you want to smear a thick lip treatment on your lips. That’s why I liked the lightweight, super shiny, yet hydrating texture of Coconut Lip Love. This felt soothing on my dry and it offered lightweight moisture without being sticky or tacky. The formula is running but it doesn’t migrate at all and it wears well over lipstick or lip stain should like you a little moisture on top of your favorite lip products. It does have a very light and natural coconut flavor and fragrance but nothing that will be a buzzkill for sensitive users.
I liked this one a lot and I’d definitely repurchase it!
