This cold weather plays havoc with my skin, and often leaves my lips feeling dry and chapped, so I’ve been taking time to search for a lip salve that works efficiently, and also meets my requirements in a product. I’m sure many of you know me by now, I have a checklist; I like vegan, natural, sustainably sourced ingredients, eco packaging, non animal tested and I really like to support small businesses too. And on top of all of that, I still want the product to work efficiently and look beautiful in my bathroom. Ok, I know I’m asking for a lot, but when I found Sister and Co their products were a perfect fit.
Sister and Co was founded by Sophie Thomson, after she went on a yoga retreat in Goa. While there, Sophie began using raw coconut oil on her skin, and noticed her skin cleared up completely. When she returned home, Sophie wanted to continue with this routine, but couldn’t find anything as pure or natural, as the coconut oil she had been using in Goa. She was disappointed also to find, many of the natural ingredient beauty products still contained chemical fillers, preservatives and synthetic fragrance. So Sophie began developing products and this beautiful range of Sister and Co products is the result.
The first thing I noticed and love about this Sister and Co lip tonic, is although the products are natural, they still feel luxury and high end. I need a natural product, but I also want it to work and look stylish. Even the name, Raw Coconut Lemon Myrtle and Wild Mint Lip Tonic , sounds delicious!
When you put the tonic on your lips, the taste is quite incredible. I can really taste the lemon and mint yet it still obviously feels and tastes very natural. We lick our lips constantly and we have to worry how much of our lip salves and lipstick end up in our stomach. Research has shown that women who wear lipstick and lip salve, may ingest up to four pounds during their lifetime. This is quite a terrifying prospect; That information alone, makes me happy to have found a food grade ingredient lip salve.
My lips have been so much more moisturised, and I’ve experienced no chapping at all since I’ve been using this lip tonic, so I’m very happy to share this company with you all, and I hope you all enjoy this gorgeous range.
Throughout March to mark International Women’s Day 10% of all Sister and Co proceeds will be donated to Solace Women’s Aid.
