This is the most common question I get asked with my lemon and sugar face masks. They are both very simple but extremely effective.
Lips are generally the first thing to go in a face mask, so if you’re not too fond of the smell, you can either get a new one that’s been pre-moistened or use regular lipstick. The problem with regular lipstick though is that it makes lips look so soft, it can be hard to tell if they’re painted on. The new face masks from Lemon and Sugar use vegetable oils that make lips look smooth and plump in minutes.
As with the new Lipo face masks, the masks themselves are pretty simple. All you need to do is apply the oils to your skin and you are good to go. The best part is that the oils will last all day, so you can reapply after your face is wiped clean.
They also make a great lip balm because you can apply the oils directly to lips. The oils are also supposed to help with your lips looking younger, and they’re not too moisturizing so if you have dry skin, you can just use some of the oils to make your lips feel a little more moisturized.
The oils aren’t really what people are looking for in a lip balm though. The best lip balms usually taste bad and contain harmful chemicals and oils. Lemon oil and lemon balm are actually both made from the same substances. Instead of chemicals, lemon oil is made from the same compound that has been used in lemon balm to mask the smell of lemons. Lemon balm is made from the same ingredient as lemon oil, but in a different method.
The difference between lemon balm and lemon oil is that lemon balm has a stronger smell so people will react to it differently, whereas lemon oil will smell like lemons all the time and people will just be okay with it.
Lemon and sugar for lips actually have a bit of a similar taste. Their main differences stem from the fact that lemon oil is a much more potent ingredient. The two ingredients are often mixed together for a stronger effect.
This may be the first time I’ve seen so much discussion about the differences between the two ingredients. Lemon and sugar for lips have a similar taste. It’s also a bit stronger than lemon balm. I actually prefer lemon balm to lemon oil.
I find that the two ingredients are complementary. In fact, I think they are almost interchangeable. You can use either oil to get the same effect without much extra work, and both are also great balms. I would recommend using both in moderation, though, as the taste is so very similar.
While I use both, I prefer lemon balm because it gives me much less dry mouth than lemon oil. Lemon oil and lemon balm are both great for your lips.
