Stay Kiss Ready with Island Kiss

Hey everyone, hope y'all are enjoying summers and its special treats like anti-oxidant foods (seasonal fruits and salads) because they keep you active and do taste yum!

Today, I've got something yummier for you, and for your lips! Its quite a dilemma when you have a habit of licking your lips and nothing tastes good, especially in summers (you know what I mean)! Well, if I may say so, being your 'god mother', I felt it was my duty to introduce you to a range of tasteful lip balms from ISLAND KISS. Like, even the brand name has a kiss in there, so you know how appetizing it sounds already!

I am a total lip balm person, so much so that even my friends joke around when I make up stories about something, they say, "Yeah, we'll believe that the day you give up your lip balm." Like usual, I gasp, "Never. Without it my lips feel naked and alone." So yeah they know it too!

No matter what season it is, one beauty product I keep applying multiple times every day is a lip balm and I'm sure you too do it and have stacks of it in your hand bags (correct me if not)! I recently came across some lips balms from Island Kiss, an Indian brand that has some of the most organic flavors of all times!

These lip balms come in a fun packaging, all decked up in a 70s theme! I love how cute the tubes look too, and the colors are just so summery and vibrant. Each pack has a fun insert that can be used as a bookmark that carries all details of each product too! Coming to what attracted me most were the amazing fragrance of each of the lip balm that could be smelt even if the tube was closed! Wow that!

There are three variants available in the Island Kiss Lip Balms. Besides having different fragrances, each of these lip balms have different tints too. I've described each piece separately below, so let's take a look : 

PUERTO BERRY BLUSH - This is the Belle of the Ball, the lip balm you can reach out for when you want a tint of red color on your lips along with intense hydration. I used to apply little quantity of this product on my lips, fearing a stain like you get after eating a raspberry ice-cream, but eventually I realized it wasn't the quantity that mattered, the color actually is quite intense. True to its name, 'Berry Cheeky Tint' it can be used on the cheeks for a natural looking blush! ---- Price : 499/- 

ALMA VANILLA & INGES LAVENDER - I love the soft fragrance of this lip balm. The tint in this one is 'Birth Suit Nude' as by the name suggests, its a purplish tint but looks almost clear on the lips! Since I have a dusky complexion, the clear tint suits me well especially when I don't want to color my lips but still make it look glossy! This is my favorite of the three variants and I regularly wear this from morning to night, and always before taking selfies :P ---- Price : 399/-

CHERRY BLOSSOM FLORES - This one has a lovely, mild cherry blossom fragrance, very similar to the L'Occitane one! The shade 'Bunny Pink Tint' has a pale milky pink tint that looks just plain on anyone with medium skin tone. It appears natural and quite cool for the summer months. For winters I assume it wouldn't look as good because of its too cool pigmentation! For fairer skin tone, its the best piece. ---- Price : 399/-

All lip balms from Island Kiss have special ingredients, namely Tropical Komkum and Avacado Butter, Organic Beeswax, Stevia, Organic Carrot Seed oil, Pure Castor Oil, Rich Vitamin E Oil, Organic Macademia Nut Oil, Citrus Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil and Natural Organic Color. That makes the Island Kiss products 100% natural and wholesome!

Also, as you can see in the pictures above, these lip balms have a pretty sassy packaging. I always prefer tube packs for lip balms to pots and these tubes have an angled applicator making it easier to follow the shape of the lips!

The Island Kiss lip balms cold-pressed and made in artiste batches using essential oils and vegetable butters. These are truly emollient and hence instantly soften the lips. They work beautifully to keep your lips moisturised even when you're wearing the driest lipsticks! I mostly apply the lip balm when I start doing my makeup so by the time I am done with everything else, and only left to put lipstick, my lips are nicely hydrated and that ways the lipsticks too glide on smoothly, making my lips always kiss ready! ;)

Also, these lip balms work wonders for all those who have extremely chapped lips and need a solution to it. Girls, go for it! PS : If you're one of those who tends to eat lipstick and lip balms applied on your lips often, then this product is meant just for you! 

My rating : 4.5/5

Would I recommend it : Obviously YES!

Would I buy it : Yes. Every 3 months ( My lip balms don't last more than that)
