The Beauty Goodies

Gloss-aholics like me know that the secret to a pretty plump pucker are how well ingredients hydrate the lips. So we went undercover and got the skinny on some of the ingredients* of each of The Skinnys.

*

Aloe Vera serves as a water-binding agent for skin due to its polysaccharide (complex carbohydrate) and sterol content. Research has also shown aloe has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial qualities.

Coconut & Sunflower Oils are plant oils used as an emollient in cosmetics.

Sacha Inchi Oil is from the seeds of a star-shaped plant grown on vines of the Peruvian Amazon. Its crushed seeds contain a high level of Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids, vitamin A and E, amino acids, and up to 52 percent -linolenic acid, making it well-positioned as an anti-aging skincare ingredient.

The Bottom Line

There’s no doubt that the ingredients in Secret Agent Beauty’s lip glosses pack a punch with its dual roles of pretty color and treatment properties. The abundance in natural moisturizing factors explain how it effectively hydrates and smoothes the lips longer than the average Chap Stick. My only qualm is that it contains peppermint oil, which is a known skin irritant that gives off the appearance of plumping. However, given its other superstar list of good-for-your-skin oils, I would personally continue having The Skinnys as part of my beauty arsenal.

The Skinnys kit retails at $60, and are found at Fred Segal, Pat Fields or online at SAB.us.com.

     @Emily Foreign Intelligence Flirt is my fave as well!  The lychee flavor is addictive, and the subtle color is gorgeous with smokey eyes!
