Made For A Man, But Perfect For A Woman: Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balms

Jack Black Intensive Therapy Lip Balms: Shea Butter & Vitamin E and Grapefruit & Ginger

Jack Black Intensive Therapy Lip Balms: Shea Butter & Vitamin E and Grapefruit & Ginger

Dry lip girls (and guys) rejoice! There is another product out there to rave over and it’s from Jack Black! This company and their products are geared towards men, but even as their website points out some of their products are appreciated and used by women. One such product would be there line of lip balms. I am absolutely in LOVE with these simple, yet effective balms. They are extremely moisturizing so even those with the driest of lips will be thrilled with the results. I purchased  these on a whim after trying unsuccessfully to locate my beloved H20 lip balm in a local store. I don’t have the driest of lips but I do love a great lip product that promotes hydration and softness without feeling greasy. Jack Black Intense Therapy balms do just that.

They come in 7 varieties (8 if you count the limited edition Açai Berry & Vanilla option available in the Balm Squad Lip Quad set):

Shea Butter & Vitamin E

Mango & Mandarin

Black Tea & Blackberry

Grapefruit & Ginger

Lemon & Chamomile

Natural Mint & Shea Butter

Vanilla & Lavender

The bonus perk? These lip balms offer sunscreen protection in SPF 25 (rare for most lip products) while also being gluten & fragrance-free. They retail for $7.50, but can be purchased in a 4 tube set for $25 (a savings of $1.25/tube) or a duo set for $12 (a savings of $1.50/tube). They are available at various retailers including Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Product Review: Urban Decay Lip Love Honey-Infused Lip Therapy

Urban Decay’s Lip Love Honey Infused Lip Therapy isn’t a new product at all, but when I recently picked up a new one on sale I thought it might be a good idea to do a review on them.


Lip Love is a line of tinted lip balms…or gloss. It’s not quite as thick as traditional balms because it is not a solid, but it’s a bit thicker than some glosses. UD officially calls them a lip therapy. This is perhaps due to the ingredients used and the affects they are said to have. According to the product description on the UD website:

Its healing powers come courtesy of a few ingredients that are rejuvenating heavy hitters. Antioxidant Vitamin C boosts collagen and evens out skin tone. Millet, Jojoba and Apricot Kernel Seed Oils work together as a powerful lip-healing trifecta to moisturize, replenish and promote cell turnover. Continue reading
