Unfortunately for some people, they can’t wear lipsticks or lip glosses without their lips becoming dry. In severe cases it can cause inflamed lips or cheilitis. Though there are many potential irritants in lip products there’s one in particular that is known to be especially problematic and that’s castor seed oil aka ricinus communis. This is because one of the main constituents is Ricinoleic acid, a fairly well known allergen.
Finding a lip product free of castor seed oil is really difficult so I was really interested to discover that it’s not in the Zelens Lip Glazes. I found this out because my mother is allergic to castor seed oil so she goes carefully examines the ingredients list of lip products before using them. As she couldn’t spot castor seed oil on the Zelens Lip Glazes list of ingredients, she tried it out and she had no reaction whatsoever. Not even a hint of dryness.
What’s great about the Zelens Lip Glazes is that as well as being free of castor oil they’re also absolutely gorgeous in terms of packaging, shades, quality and feel on the lips. You don’t feel you’re having to compromise on any aspect so as to have a ‘free-from’ product.
Of course, Zelens Lip Glazes are also brilliant for those don’t suffer from lip sensitivity. I can’t actually think of one way they could be improved. They’re jammed packed with skincare benefits such as Volulip, which is a combination of tripeptides and botancial extracts that improves the superficial and internal lip texture. It makes lips look fuller and feel more hydrated and softer.
The Lip Glazes come in 5 shades – Nude, Coral, Rose, Pink, Rouge – and they give an even tint of colour. The finish is very high shine giving the overall look of voluminous and juicy lips.
