Labello review + my first GIVEAWAY!

Last week was kind of special. It was the first time that a company contacted me and offered to send me some products. When I started writing this blog I promised myself I will never receive a free product in return for a good review, so I was happy when this company guaranteed me they don’t even expect me to do a post about the products. But here I am, doing it, because I think that this brand is a staple in all of our lives and it deserves a review of its own. 

So the brand we are talking about is Labello which, as said, is a brand we all probably grew up with and I don’t think that there are many ladies in this country that don’t own at least one Labello. Now as you probably remember, there used to be only the one, blue Labello, that smelled kind of like Nivea which wasn’t too tempting, but was great for your lips. Well, things sure have changed. Labello has come out with loads of new, exciting products and I have been more or less of a fan my whole adult life. The products that I received are the Lip butter in Coconut, the Fruity Shine in cherry flavor and the Repair & Beauty. 

I was most excited about the lip butter because I haven’t been able to get my hands on it even though I have searched for it before. It’s a great soft formula with an intense coconut flavor (on a side note – if you have cats, you will get a bunch of kisses from them wearing this – my cat was beyond excited and tried to steal it away from me several times in the past few days) and it really hydrates your lips a bit more intensely than I could claim for other Labello products. I like the tin packaging by itself, it looks fresh and summery, but with that being said, I am not a fan of applying products with my fingers. In the age of touch screens, I like my fingers to be clean or at least not have some sticky content stuck on them. So with that said, I would prefer this to sit in my bathroom to use in the morning, on my nightstand to use before bed or take it to the beach, but I wouldn’t use it on a daily basis on the go. 

The Fruity Shine in Cherry is mmmm… delicious. It’s like eating cherry candy or chewing on a cherry flavored gum. A special bonus as far as I am concerned is the fact that it doesn’t have that Nivea under-flavor to it, which many of the Labello’s still have. It leaves a very slight pink shine to your lips but you can easily get away with putting it on without a mirror at any time. If you miss a spot and go over your lips it hardly shows up at all and only leaves a very slight shine, almost like you’re wearing illuminator. So no worries there – it’s another great flavor by Labello which I’m sure we would all enjoy.

Last up, we have the Repair & Beauty which I was the least excited about, to be completely honest with you. I expected it to be a slightly vamped up version of the classic Labello, but boy oh boy, was I in for a surprise! Although it’s pink in color it only adds a tiny bit of that to your lips – so it’s kind of your lips, but better 😉 And I was so curious to learn what the white center of the product did! It turns out that’s where they hid the mint – so although the products might feel a bit heavy the moment you put it on you will be instantly rewarded with that freshness the mint brings along. I absolutely love this product and I expect it to be my staple during the winter months when my lips get particularly chapped. 

As I said, I received these products for free. And it hardly seemed fair for me to get free stuff and not share them with you, my lovely readers 🙂 So I went to the drugstore and I got a lovely set of products which I will be giving away to one of you. 

It contains a brand new make-up bag, which I think is in the perfect shades for autumn and winter  – I actually bought one for myself as well 🙂 Next up, you will get the chance to try not one, not two, but all three of the current Labello Lip Butter flavors – the Coconut, Raspberry Rose and Vanilla & Macadamia. I also picked up two of the Fruit Shines in Peach and Cherry, so as far as lip balms go, you’re about set for the entire year. And just because I feel that beautiful lips don’t help much if you don’t have a lovely smile to compliment them, I got you my absolute favorite chewing gum – Chicza, which is completely natural & organic – in 3 different flavors.
