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..

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