Are you looking for a natural product to tint your lips and provide moisture? I recently tried the Babo Botanicals Sheer Lip Tint Conditioner. I actually tried this product in three different shades. I was introduced to the line when attending the Mom 2.0 conference in Austin in April. I was so impressed with their stick sunscreen that I knew I wanted to try additional products. These lip tints were sent to me for review purposes.
It’s important to note that the lip tints are “free of Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Peanuts, Almonds, Walnuts, SLS, Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Synthetic Fragrances, Dyes, Sodium chloride, Formaldehyde, MEA, DEA, TEA, and most common allergens. In addition, the powerful but gentle formula does contain tree nuts – coconut and shea butter.”
The Lip Tints contains Babo’s exclusive Nutri-Soothe™ Complex™ that is rich in vitamins & anti-oxidants. What does this mean? It means you’re getting ingredients applied to your lips that are going to smooth and condition your lips while also providing a shot of color.
Ingredients in the Babo Botanicals Lip Tint:
Active: Titanium Dioxide 1.7%, Zinc Oxide 0.7% (Sunscreen)
Inactive: Beeswax*, Bisabolol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Carmine, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Fragrance, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Iron Oxide, Jojoba Esters, Nasturtium Officinale Flower/Leaf Extract*, Octyldodecyl Oleate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil*, Oryzanol, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil*, Pueraria Lobata Root Extract*, Silica, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Spiraea Ulmaria Flower Extract*, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Tocopherol. *Certified Organic Ingredients
These Lip Tints contain an SPF 15 consisting of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. These are physical sunscreen ingredients and help to block the harmful rays from the sun. The product can be applied right before sun exposure and should be reapplied if you plan to spend an extended time in the sun.
You can see from my swatches that these Lip Tints are highly pigmented in the Plum Rose and Crimson Rose shades. The Beach Rose is rather sheer, but provides a nice shimmer on the lips for occasions when you don’t want an actual color on your lips. I will mention that all three of these products do have a scent to them from the natural ingredients.
The Sheer Lip Tint Conditioners from Babo Botanicals are formulated to be worn by all, from young to mature. They give lips both color and shine. The ingredients help to keep lips soft and conditioned with their lightweight formula.
Babo products can be purchased at a wide variety of retailers such as Target, Ulta, Whole Foods and Sprouts. In addition, they can be purchased online from Amazon, Vitacost and Skinstore and many others. The Lip Tints retail under $10 each and can also be purchased in variety packs.
How did I not know about these lip tints before now? I find the formula to be effective at providing moisture to my lips with healthy ingredients. The color payoff for the darker shades is notable. The color lasts a decent amount of time (a few hours, including drinking my morning coffee and more). I personally enjoy the natural cacao scent that these have. I recommend the Babo Botanicals Lip Tints if you’re looking for sun protection for the sensitive skin on your lips along with pretty color choices and natural ingredients. Let me know if you’ve tried these or any other products from Babo Botanicals.
