NEW! Softlips Cubes Review

Happy Mother's Day everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and are excited for a review on the brand new, adorable Softlips Cubes! I heard about these guys around a month ago and looked for them everywhere and finally managed to snag them at Walgreens. So, I suggest stopping there if you've been having trouble finding them! I picked up the scents Vanilla Bean and Fresh Mint for $3.49 plus tax.






Let me start out by saying that these lip balms are just SO cute. I love the "cubes" idea and I adore the packaging. There is no doubt that the looks of these can be easily compared to the EOS lip balms that similarly have twist off caps that reveal dome shaped lip balm. The EOS lip balms contain .25 oz of product while these Softlips only contain .23 oz. This, however, leads to the Softlips having much less bulkier packaging, being only a little over an inch tall, making them more convenient to travel with!







When first trying these lip balms, I instantly noticed how easily they applied without feeling the slightest bit greasy or waxy. The product seems to instantly absorb into your lips so you're not stuck with any gross heavy or sticky feeling. They do leave what some people would call a slight tingly feeling, especially the mint one, but it is not bothersome at all and I would actually describe it as much of just a "cool" feeling. The fact that these have an added SPF 15 in them is also wonderful!




What surprised me the most about these balms was how effectively they worked. My lips weren't left with the most moisturized feeling ever (probably due to how thin the formula is) but I noticed that my dry patches were gone and my lips felt softer. That being said, I don't think that these alone will make a massive long term improvement like a specialized night cream might. On the other hand, these are excellent for an everyday use and, in my opinion, much more comfortable and effective at smoothing over dry patches then their popular EOS competitor. I can't wait to pick up the Pomegranate Blueberry flavor and complete my collection.

Thanks for reading! If you have any questions please leave them below and let me know what you think of these!
