Accidental GOOD BUY

Saturday, October 29, 2011

          I was at Trinoma with a friend (Kristen) a few days ago and we made a quick stop at Healthy Options. I was surprised at the volume and variety of things they sell. They have an array of food items, supplements, skin and hair care products. But the best thing I saw was this tinted lip balm. 

          I haven't heard of this brand before (Alba Botanica) which made me quite hesitant to buy it at first but when I read the label and saw it was 70% organic with SPF 8, I immediately reconsidered. This product reminds me of Burt's Bees tinted lip balm which I love above all others but if you're on a tight budget and you want a more affordable product that can give you the same effect, this is a good substitute. It moisturizes your lips with just the right amount of shimmer and pigment. The downside is they only have 2 shades available. The one I got was Bloom which has almost the same color as Burt's Bees Fig while the other color was in purple. Burt's bees tinted lip balms are priced at P395.00 each while Alba Botanica offers theirs at only P139.00.
