Vn Lrg Lip TreatmentOur addiction to lip gloss and balms is well documented on this site, so we're always excited when a unique product crosses our desks. This new organic lip treatment is more of a cream than a balm, so it moisturizes without feeling greasy. It's full of antioxidants and stimulating essential oils (among other ingredients) that help minimize fine lines while giving lips a smoother fuller look. Created for free radical protection, dryness prevention and healing, it also leaves you with sweet breath.
