Product Review: Lise Watier Spa Gourmands - Lip Care (Sensational Kiss and Spa Fondant)

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : SPA Gourmands - Lip Care
Price: $29.00 CAD

The Lise Watier SPA Gourmands - Lip Care is a "value kit" (love it because you can try a few products for a great price). This particular kit includes Lise Watier's Sensational Kiss and Spa Fondant (available in either Chocolate Treat or Mint Infusion). I'm going to review each product separately since you can purchase them on their own.

I've been having a horrible winter beauty-wise. My skin has never suffered so much from the cold and wind as it has this year, and my lips are also suffering more than ever. They're unsually dry and chapped and wearing lipstick is really difficult because it's clumps up and scales off.

So when Suziesaurus reviewed The Body Shop Lip Care I was thinking of picking one up, but then I got my hands on this kit, so I figured I'd give this a try first.

Name: : Sensational Kiss
Size: 1.9 g / 0.06 oz
Price: approx. $19.00 CAD

A lip balm that provides a smoothing and nourishing treatment, specially designed for the delicate skin of the lips. Formulated with sugar crystals, this product gently exfoliates lips by massaging the product using the soft flock applicator or by rubbing the lips together.

The fine sugar crystals melt on the lips, while the softening products of Shea butter, panthenol and vitamin E help soften the lips.

To Purr About:
- light pleasant scent
- soft, slanted applicator is really easy to use
- leaves light, grainy crystals on the lips

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
Love it! I find this lip exfoliator super gentle and light. The crystals melt pretty quickly and I really noticed a difference in my lips after a week of use. I was having a really bad case of dry lips the day I started using this balm and the next day there was already a much more smooth lip.

Name: : Spa Fondant
Size: 2.2 g / 0.07 oz.
Price: approx. $19.00 CAD

Shade tried: Nude Tendresse

Rich in antioxidant Vitamin E and deep-moisturizing ingredients that keep lips from drying and chapping, this product also contains an ingredient that promotes collagent renewal.

To Purr About:
- incredibly light, moisturizing product
- lovely light, cocoa shade
- amazing chocolate scent and flavour
- goes on easily with the brush applicator

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
This is a treat for the lips. I used it right after using the Sensational Kiss product and my lips have completely recovered from the winter bashing. It really is a "spa for the lips" - it leaves a glossy (but not sticky) look on the lips and is very hard to resist not licking it all off as the shade I tried smells incredibly like chocolate. Yumm! Another winner, Lise Watier!

I'm happy to hear that the Spa Fondant product has a bit of tint in it. That was the only thing I don't like about the Body Shop Lip Care product - that there is no tint in it.
