Mentholatum Therapy Lip Gel Review: Cracked and Dry Lips No More!
This pandemic has brought us different challenges and changed the way how we live especially when we are outside of our houses. Since the “new normal” is already requiring us to wear a mask to protect ourselves from the deadly virus, we might forget to also protect what’s behind the mask… our lips.
The skin on our lips is much thinner compared to the skin on the other parts of our body. As they become exposed to the scorching heat of the sun, cold weather and other factors, our lips lose its moisture, dries out and become cracked which is very uncomfortable and sometimes painful. But you know what? It’s a good thing that you can always do something about it.
So how can we prevent our lips from drying and cracking?
- Stay hydrated and drink lots of water.
- Remove make up. Your lips needs to breathe too.
- Never lick your lips. The enzymes in your saliva are harsh on your delicate lips.
- Exfoliate when necessary to remove dead skin cells.
- Do a lip massage. This improves blood circulation in your lips.
- Eat a healthy diet. If you are eating right, your skin would show. So are your lips.
- Always bring a lip balm with you. You’ll never know when your lips could dry out.
Since I mentioned about lip balm, just recently, I have received a package from Mentholatum containing one of their products, the Mentholatum Therapy Lip Gel, (OMG! like a bunch of it!. Thank you!)It also came with a washable mask and a bottle of alcohol that I can use for my protection in this time of pandemic.(Thanks again 😊)
What Mentholatum Therapy Lip Gel can do?
The weather here in the Philippines could be dry, hot, humid, and sometimes a bit cold, that is why we are very prone to having dry and cracked lips. So bringing a lip balm could come in handy. It is nice that Mentholatum Therapy Lip Gel comes in tube packaging(net weight 8.0 grams) which is very convenient to bring anywhere you go so you can apply it anytime. It is small enough, it can fit in your purse, or pocket.
This product is in gel format which contains the following ingredients: Petrolatum, Menthol, Camphor, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pinus Sylvestris Leaf Oil. Each of these ingredients are known in the market for giving moisture, helps in repairing skin irritation, relieves soreness and can give cooling sensation.
How to use Mentholatum Therapy Lip Gel?
It is so easy to use. Squeeze the tube genlty and apply it on your lips until it is fully covered with the gel. That’s it.
I love the cooling sensation and the soothing feeling!(it’s mentholated). Even if it has a gel consistencey(because of the petroleum), there’s no heavy feeling and it is not that sticky on the lips. Plus it made my lips softer post application.
Lastly, I like the after look of my lips, it is as if I’m wearing a lip gloss! ❤️❤️❤️
Good thing to know that there’s a product like this in the market. Like I mentioned earlier, you’ll never know when your lips could dry out. So better to have one just in case.
So if you are planning to buy one, Mentholatum Therapy Lip Gel is available in-store at Mercury Drug, Watsons and online via Lazada, Shopee, and Watson’s online for only PHP108. 😊
