jane iredale Lip Drink SPF 15 Lip Balm Review

jane iredale- The Skin Care Makeup

I have a terrific product that I will review: the jane iredale product, the Lip Drink. Jane Iredale founded Iredale Mineral Cosmetics in 1994, and her goal has been to ”make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin. Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.”

This jane iredale product is SPF 15 from the lip balm’s active ingredient, zinc oxide. It is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, and when used regularly it can aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. The Lip Drink provides Medium Protection from UVB/UVA rays.

I like that the lip balm tube is designed to appeal to both women and men. It’s not  just women that have to worry about skin cancer; men are equally at risk, of course! The lip balm is advertised as being colorless, which is true, but I do get a white tint on my lips.

This is practical for all seasons. Your lips can get scorched from the winter winds and the sun’s rays in the summer.

 This is the back of the box:

 The Lip Drink bears the Recommended by Label:

Another great aspect is that the Lip Drink has no petroleum-derived products. Jane Iredale reports that it is Vegan and Gluten Free. The smell and flavor is from lemon and carrot oils.

See the open jar symbol? That’s the EU (European Union) requirement that all boxes and labels contain that symbol with the number of months you can expect to use the product at its “optimal performance.”   So the period the consumer has on the Lip Drink is 12 months.

Review of a Reviva Labs’ Product!

Reviva Labs was a company that I was familiar with, but had never tried any of their products. However, when the company’s name came up in a private discussion with fellow beauty bloggers, they offered praise for the various products that were their favorite!

I’d like to thank one blogger in particular, Cindy, whom you all know on Twitter as Prime Beauty 50, and here is her Blog. I want to thank Cindy for giving my name to Anna at Reviva Labs, so that I would have the opportunity to test and review the products for my readers.

Kudos to Reviva Labs! When Reviva Labs began in 1973, they emphasized testing in Skin Care Salons, not on animals! Therefore, Reviva Labs may be the first brand sold in Health Food Stores whose products were tested with people actually using the products. Reviva Labs believed, and I agree, that by having a panel of skin care experts testing the finished products, they had even better information than the big companies who were testing on animals. Not only did they receive safety results, they also found out how the products performed!

“Reviva Cosmetic Labs has taken the pledge of the Humane Society of the United States and has made “The Beautiful Choice” to promote consumer preference for cosmetics and personal-care products that are not tested on animals.”

The two Reviva products that I received:

1. Vitamin E Stick

2. Spider Vein & Rosacea Day Cream–which will be featured in an upcoming post

Vitamin A stickBoth products have this in common: sunscreen! Remember, sunscreen should be worn every day, not just in summer months, or when you’re on vacation in sunny location!  When you’re outside, you’re exposing your face to possible sun damage!

Lots to love about Reviva Labs’ Vitamin E Stick:

SPF #15 sun protection, for both my lips and underneath my eyes. This will protect against UVA/UVB rays and wind damage. Very important as I know that lips are vulnerable to skin cancer! No scare tactics; just a fact.

The Vitamin E Stick is very soothing and moisturizing to my lips, preventing them from being dry and having that gross, crackly lip-look. The lip balm has a natural beeswax base with soy, Vitamin E and allantoin. Beeswax is important because it has the ability to lock in moisture and protect lips.

As is true of all of Reviva Labs’ products, they feature a vegetable oil base, rather than mineral oil!         

Reviva Vitamin E

Dr. Mehmet Oz recently told his television viewers that they should use a lip balm that contains beeswax; Reviva Labs’ goes even further with added ingredients and their benefits! 

Product may be applied over or under a lipstick.

Translucent coverage, means that Reviva’s Vitamin E Oil Stick is great for both women and men!

As you can see from the picture, it’s very convenient to have the Vitamin E Stick in a “lipstick-type tube.”

Even the price of Reviva’s Vitamin E Oil Stick with SPF #15 is a bargain: US $4.00!

Highly recommend!

Where to buy:

In addition to the website store, you can call the toll free number (800) 257-7774 extension #19, to speak with a Consumer Division Representative. The Rep. can help with the ordering process or answer any questions. 

Various independent health food stores also carry a varying array of Reviva products.  The national chains that Reviva Labs’ products are sold in include GNC, Vitamin Shoppes, Whole Foods and Ulta Cosmetic Stores.
