Just LIke Butter

I know that many of you mentioned that you don't like the scent of vanilla, but this product is divine so I have to tell you about it. Allow me to abate your fears by telling you that the vanilla scent lasts for half of a second and then it is gone. This is the Pure Vanilla Healthy Lip Butter SPF 8 and it consists of several butters including cocoa, illipe, shea and kokum. It is also infused with amino acids, vanilla beans and antioxidants. This is probably the silkiest lip treatment that I have ever tried and the best part is that is %100 free of stickiness. It really feels like you have melted butter on your lips. For $16 I will make this investment again.
Lavanilla also produces a lip gloss (shown on the right) that costs $14 but instead of butters it includes oils like jojoba, and apricot to give your lips a high shine.
I should also mention that you do get a lovely shine from the lip butter also so this product has officially become my favorite lip butter….well at least until my next trip to Sephora.
I am testing several products now, so some different reviews are headed your way soon.

I love the scent of vanilla! I will definitely give this one a try. I can't count how many lip glosses I have, but I keep on using the same ones!

@Frugalista I am adjusting my counter right now :-)
@BGG yes sometimes we find our favorites and then neglect the others (sigh).

Gosh, when I go to Atlanta in a couple of weeks, Sephora will be getting a nice little penny from my pockets!

Jewells, I understand where you are coming from. I knew I was bad when the sales associate in Sephora said to me... "you were in here a few times this week already right? "
Also remember Sephora is the sample kingdom so you just need to ask for a sample to see if a product will work for you. As for this particular lip butter you can squeeze some out in the store and see if the consistency is something you would appreciate. And when you are at the cash register remember to ask if they have any additional sample..LOL never hurts. Do you have your beauty insiders card? If not sign up for one when you go there, it will cost you nothing. I will do a post on it :-)
