Hi, guys! Hope you all are doing great. If you are following me for a long time, then you would know that I am a big fan of lip balms. This is something that I can not live without. I always carry a lip balm in my purse wherever I go. I have little dehydrated lips throughout the year. My lips get dry very easily. Plus, I am a matte lipstick lover and I want my lips to look nourished and plump whenever I apply a matte lipstick or matte lip stain. Thus, I cannot think my life without a lip balm. A couple of months ago, a brand called Island Kiss sent me a package containing three of their products. Today, I am going to review those three variants. So, let’s get started.
“Island Kiss is a Lip Care Brand inspired by Tropical Beaches across the world, fragrant coasts, salty air and lush notes of fruit and flower.” Island Kiss manufactures great quality lip moisturisers. All their products are 100% natural, pure and organic. The best thing is that their products are not tested on animals. A big yay for that! Check out more about them on their website http://www.myislandkiss.com/
The three variants that I received are Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender, Cherry Blossom Flores and Puerto Berry Blush. I will be reviewing each of the variants individually.
Packaging- All the three variants of the Island Kiss lip moisturisers come in plastic, squeezy tubes with a screw cap closure. The applicator part is slanted resulting in a precise and easy application. Each tube has all the information like shade name, ingredients, direction to use written on it. So, you don’t need to worry if you lose the outer packaging.

My Experience with Island Kiss Tropique Pomade Lip Moisturizers
I have been using the Island Kiss lip moisturisers for quite some time now and I have noted a few points about them that I am going to share with you now. First of all, do not expect them to be as hydrating as any other lip balm or chapsticks. These are lip moisturisers and they provide more lustre than hydration to your lips. Unlike a lip balm or lip butter, they are really light-weight. That’s why they are good for summers but in winters they cannot moisturise the lips very well and turns dry soon. These lip moisturisers are more like lip glosses. Apart from that, I like them for their lightweight property, they smell really good, they are organic, made of natural ingredients, do not contain lead, have SPF 15 and most importantly they are cruelty-free. The variants Cherry Blossom Flores and Puerto Berry Blush are more pigmented compared to the Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender one. Puerto Berry Blush is my favourite of them all only because of the pigmentation and texture. It is also the most long lasting among the three.
Being gel/gloss like texture, you cannot wear them underneath your matte lipstick. They are good for daily use. The plastic tube packaging makes it perfect to travel with and also very hygienic. I would not recommend these if you are looking for something to try out this winter, but they are definitely great for summers. People with extremely dry or chapped lips should avoid them. I will repurchase the Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender and Puerto Berry Blush whenever I run out of them.
Have you used any one of these Island Kiss lip moisturisers before? How was your experience?
