Product Love: C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine Review

My previous post may have highlighted... possibly? ;) ...that I kinda like C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shines... So this here post is dedicated to the lovely little tubes of gorgeous glossyness!!

From left to right pictured above is Spearmint, Magenta Mint and Cinnamint Mentha Lip Shine.

They have a price tag of $7.50 USD or if you live in the UK then can be found in a range of flavours for £4.99 at ...and if all else fails try good old ebay ;)

The Reason I love these are that they really do seem to have healing powers over dry chapped lips. Most other products (even the ones that claim to be moisturizing) seem to dry my lips out after a while but this product continually adds moisture to them, plumping them up and giving amazing shine all at the same time as tasting delicious. Due to the yummy minty flavours they actually refresh the breath giving a nice cool tingly freshness - perfect for those times that you don't have any mints to hand but need a little refreshing in the old mouth area. One thing that needs to be noted, which may be a turn off for some, is that the consistency is quite thick but I believe this is what keeps my lips smooth and protected. Lastly, a tube of this seems to go a long way.

The original mentha lip shines are clear in colour but come in different flavours (Mint, Spearmint, Cinnamint, etc) and now the range also includes coloured lip shines. I have tried Coral Mint, Pink Mint and Magenta Mint (Magenta Mint is pictured above.) Each of these add a nice little tint to the lips for some healthy colour but are not greatly pigmented (I found Magenta Mint to have the most impact with regard to colour).

Overall, I have been using these lip glosses for a few years now and swear by them - come winter or shine! Lastly, I must say that my fav has to be Cinnamint. It is just such a lovely smelling yummy flavour!

Let me know if you have tried any of the new flavours, such as Triple Hot Chocolate or Mango Mimosa? These sound quite interesting!
