LOOK! They’re clear.
I don’t know why, but this amuses me to no end. 🙂
Here to fight the good fight against dry lips, the new $12 H2O+ Lip Gels are…clear. For the most part. And hella hydrating.
They’re light on lips (in more ways than one)
You know the story… I’m like a broker record sometimes. I have dry lips. There, I said it! I have dry lips, and they’re a pain in the butt, but these H2O+ Lip Gels? WOW. They’re marvelously moisturizing, and yet much lighter than usual for a mega moisturizing product. They’re nowhere near as thick and heavy as, say, an Hourglass Lip Oil.
Despite being rich with righteous moisture, they’re incredibly light on the lips. Sometimes I even forget I’m wearing one, so if you loathe the heavy-duty feel of real-deal lip balms and lip oils, check ’em out.

They have a hint o’ tint
They come in five sheer tinted shades and one clear one, and if you have pigmented lips like I do, you probably won’t discern a big difference among them (except for the completely clear one).
I can kindasorta see the tints clearly when I build up the red and dark purple shades (which are the only ones that seem build-able at all, and even then it’s just a little), but if you’re hoping for flamboyant fabulosity from the blue and orange shades, um…no. Sorry. They more or less look the same. They add just a hint of tint and shine, but what they do I think is nice.
Or like fresh catnip? That’s how these taste and smell, by the way, and it isn’t in-your-face. It’s subtle, so nothing at all like minty toothpaste, which would be a deal-breaker for me.
Where to find them
You tell me! — because I haven’t been able to track them all down at one place online. I highly recommend them, though. But you’ll probably only need one, since they more or less look the same once you get them on your lips. Pick your fave (I like the blue one!), and go with that. 🙂
