(Sponsored Review) The All New Mentholatum Lip Gel Series!

One item which will always be in my make up pouch will be my lip-balm… Ever since the consumption of medication for acne, dry and chapped lips became my biggest woe!! It has been 9 months since i stopped the medication but my lips are still on the dry side.. My favorite lip-care brand has to be Mentholatum as their products are affordable and effective!!

Mentholatum Lipcare offers a wide range of lip care products under its Lipice and Mentholatum lipcare series! You can choose from a range of flavorful fruity lip balms to dazzling glosses or soft and natural color lip balm to pamper your lips..

In June, Mentholatum has added an exciting new product to their Mentholatum lipcare range!! These lip-gels are highly recommended by many in Taiwan in Fashion Guide.. Before i went ahead with my double eyelid surgery, i went on extensive research on Fashion Guide as well, chose a highly recommended doctor and I’m really pleased with the result! Since, these lip-gels are highly-raved so it means they are really good as well!

Introducing the New Mentholatum Lip Gel Series which comes in three ranges:

The Medicated Vitamin Lip Gel
The Medicated Q10 & Ceramide Lip Gel
The Medicated Hyaluronic Acid & Collagen Lip GelThe all new lip gel series contains nourishing vitamins and nutrional supplements which gives healthy and moisturized lips

(Thank you EK Media and Mentholatum for sending me the products for review)

Medicated Q10 and Ceramide Lip Gel

If you think that your lips look thin, the medicated Q10 and Ceramide Lip Gel will give you fuller lips as it contains Ceramide..

In addition, it has Co-Q10 supplement to help reduce the appearance of fine lines.. Using it on a daily basis will help maintain healthy, supple and youthful looking lips…

Effective ingredients :

1) CoQ10 maintains healthy and youthful looking lips
2) Ceramide locks in and provides long lasting moisture.  It also provides effective protection against chapped and senstive lips.
3) Maxi-Lips helps reduces the appearance of fine lines and maintain supple lips.

Medicated Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen Lip Gel
If you are always spending long hours in an air-conditioned room, lips will always be dehydrated as the environment will be very dry.. To prevent your lips from cracking, you can choose the lip gel that contains Hyaluronic Acid to lock in moisture and provide long-lasting hydration to lips.. This lip gel also contains Collagen which will improve lip texture and elasticity..Effective ingredients :

1) Hyaluronic Acid – Locks in moisture and provide long lasting + Intensive hydration
2) Panthenol (Vitamin B5) – Supply moisture which helps prevent dry lips
3) Collagen – Improve lip texture and elasticity
Medicated Vitamins Lip Gel
If you prefer an extra kick to sooth chapped lips, you can get the medicated Vitamins Lip Gel as it contains menthol to soothe and refresh lips. Beside this, it also has four essential Vitamins (A,B2,C,E) to provide hydration, protection and help repair chapped lips.

Effective ingredients :

1) Vitamin A – Moisturizes and maintain smooth lips
2) Vitamin B2 – Prevents dry and chapped lips
3) Vitamin C – Intensive moisturizes lips for supple bounciness
4) Vitamin E – Repairs chapped lips to reveal youthful looking lips
5) Avocado oil and Jojoba oil – Ensure long lasting moisturizing effect

Beside the side effect from the medication, spending long hours in the freezing office made my lips really dry.. Sometimes, my lips will crack and will become really red and sensitive (As you can see from the picture below)…

Chose the Mentholatum Hyaluronic Acid Lip Gel to pamper my lips as it contains Hyaluronic Acid which deeply moisturize (If it is beneficial for my skin, i believe it will work the same for my lips as well).. 

Packaging is simple, clean and makes application easy.. The easy to squeeze tube contains 8.0g of lip gel which won’t take up much space in your make up pouch… However, do remember to close the cap tight after application to prevent any wastage.. 

The lip gel has a smooth texture which glides on easily onto my lips.. It leaves behind a sheen so this lip-gel can act as your lip-gloss as well.. However, i find the lip-gel a little too greasy for my liking which i will try to reduce by ‘clamping’ my lips on a clean piece of tissue after application.. The lip-gel taste yummy as well as it has a citrus after-taste! Since the texture is on the ‘watery side’, your lipstick color will run if you apply a layer after your lipstick.. To solve this problem, you will need to blend it the lip-gel using your lip brush to prevent any form of lip stick color-unevenness. I’m quite surprised that that my lips stays supple for sometime even though the lip gel wears off eventually..
