Review: Hissyfit Lip Service

You put your daily dose of broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen on your face (or at least you should be – sun is the number one cause of premature aging of the skin) but what about your lips?

Those two parallel sausages that stick out from your face, their thin skin sizzling in the sun’s rays like Marica Brady with her silver sun reflector. (Tried to get a pic, no luck. Surely all you old Brady fans know what I’m saying…)

I’m not sure why I didn’t think of lips needing sun protection on a daily basis, just like the rest of your face. My ‘aha!’ moment came when I learnt of Hissyfit’s Lip Service.

‘Of course your little lippies need the protection! Imagine having a taut face but the pigmented, wrinkled lips of a two-pack-a-day smoker! Not to mention the danger of skin cancer!’ thought my brain.

Lip Service is a broad spectrum SPF 30+ anti-aging lip balm.

It impressed me by:

-Being long-lasting. Nothing worse than constantly having to reapply due to the balm/gloss staying everywhere but your lips.

-Being ultra-moisturising. Lip Service contains an effective mix of shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin e to nourish your pout.

-Being non-sticky. Yes! This one doesn’t require a jaw workout to get my mouth to open!

-Having the right amount of shine; not too glossy, not too matte. Great for over nude lips, highlights my natural lip colour, or adds moisture to an already applied lip colour.

-Cheap. It retails for $20, winner!
