As you may have noticed, YULI was not just a phase for me, it’s here to stay. The formulations are so unique and effective that it would be impossible for a skincare junkie like me not to want more. After going through my first bottle of facial elixir (to be repurchased for sure), becoming obsessed with their face mask, and finally getting comfortable using their gel cleanser (it took me a little longer to fall in love with that one, but eventually I did); I picked up this little lip treat called Cellular Lip Conditioner.
The formula of the Lip Conditioner is nothing like what you would expect to put on your lips. Initially, I could not get used to its fluid, slippery consistency. However I then learned that the oily texture can easily penetrate the skin to soften it and regenerate it. Think of it as a serum for your lips, something that you would layer underneath a balm to seal in the moisture and the rejuvenating ingredients. When applied that way, it gives an excellent boost of moisture that a balm alone cannot provide. Once I started to layer it underneath a balm, I began to see the benefits and felt like my lips were at their best. It also makes a great base for lipstick. I wait a few minutes after the application to allow absorption and then I apply my lipstick. There is no such thing as a drying lipstick when you apply this conditioner as a base.
The ingredients include moisturizing, nutrient-rich plant oils such as Avocado Oil (I can have avocados with anything these days), which is not only packed with good fats but with vitamins as well. Avocado also offers some UV protection against UVA and UVB. Sea Buckthorn provides plenty of nutrients as well, such as vitamins, carotenes, peptides, and antioxidant polyphenols. It’s a magical ingredient that promotes the healing on a cellular level. Ginger Lily adds the most subtle fragrance (used in aromatherapy to relieve depression) and its rhizomes are used as antiseptic agents to treat skin damage.
