My encounters with lip gloss have always been on the superficial side. Sort of like that shallow friend in high school - a lot of shine, but not a whole lot of substance. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy wearing it for the blast of pep it gives my lips, but that's where the relationship ends. If I need anything deeper, I move over to my handy lip moisturizers and balms.
Burke Williams Day Spa is changing that image with its new H2V Spa Gloss, part of its H2V skin care line, which combines classic gloss shine and subtle color with moisturizing, anti-aging ingredients for a whole lip treatment experience.
Available in Primp (plum-purple tint), Pamper (pink blush tone) and Classic (clear), ingredients include honey for its anti-inflammatory, redness-relieving and hydrating properties; jojoba oil for further hydration and softening, and to help prevent blackheads; castor oil that naturally waterproofs for longer lasting shine; and olive oil, with antioxidant benefits, which promotes shine, elasticity and hydration.
The glossy formulas go on thick and stay on. They make my lips feel well-treated and soothed while making them pretty and shiny - the best of all worlds.
Find Spa Gloss at Burke Williams locations, including Mission Viejo and Orange, for $19.50.
