Review: Haus of Gloi Sweet Rosa



First of all, sorry to scare you with such a huge lips as the intro pic; and even more apologies because my 'sorry' wasn't quite sincere! XD  Don't you like my lips? :")

Haus of Gloi is an 'indie' kind of bath and body products company.  It makes a lot of great stuff, at least for those I've tried - so far so impressive!  In this post I would like to talk about this particular lip balm first, while in the next one I may touch on the scrubs and body butter, etc; please read on!

Lip Balm in Sweet Rosa (.15 oz)
Descriptions: Pomegranate seed oil is the star in our new formula. Perfect for protection and moisturization while soothing dry, irritated lips and delivering wonderful texture. Shea butter and jojoba oil condition while castor oil provides a light shine and added orchid extract for antioxidants and pure luxury.
INGREDIENTS: Virgin cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, candelilla (euphorbia cerifera ) wax, punica granatum linn (pomegranate) oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, caprylic/capric/stearic glycerides, cymbidium grandiflorum (orchid) flower extract, flavor oil, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), stevia leaf extract

Picture: the horrible 'before' lips, see how significant the difference is after the application? (scroll back to the top and compare again!)

Fragrance: There is no description of it on the shop website, but I will simply say it equals to Nuxe Dry Oil.  Powdery, sweet and adorable - I love it very much.  Not a complex scent, meaning you don't experience a series of top-middle-transitional-base notes, etc.  It is simply a sweet rosy powder fragrance - love!

Formula: The texture is a perfect balance between hard (durable) and soft (moisturising).  There are so many good oils in the ingredients.  It does have visible effects on the lips! Lips are instantly softened, happy - is it appropriate for my lips to feel happiness? -  and nourished.  It reminds me of the old everydayminerals murumuru lip balm which was discontinued......

Drawbacks: I can't get back-ups!  The stock is limited - yes this is a mild complaint - and I still have yet to find out more about the other flavours... :P

Overall: A

Recommend?  Yes - both for this formula and this scent!

Repurchase?  I already did - only in other flavourSS~
