EOS Lip Balm & NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil

I have some lip care products to share. They are EOS Lip Balm and NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil. I’ve had them since last year. They seem to last for quite some time. I’ve only used two EOS Lip Balms (lavender, chamomile). Haven’t gotten to the Strawberry Sorbet yet. Here are my thoughts on both of these lip care products.

EOS Lip Balm:

I purchased EOS Lip Balm in a pack. It included 2 Strawberry Sorbet (Pink), 2 Vanilla Bean (Yellow), 2 Chamomile (Lavender). The packaging stated that they are…

I’ve only used the Chamomile and Vanilla. From my experience with these two, EOS Lip Balms are so hyped up. I’ve used them before in the past. After that, I didn’t buy them again until now (to try them out again). To me, they don’t provide long-lasting hydration. I would have to reapply constantly, and they don’t leave my lips soft or hydrated by the end of the day. You would think that these lip balms are vegan by seeing ‘organic’, ‘natural’, and ‘not tested on animals’ on the packaging, but they are not. They all (all three of them) contain beeswax. This is something I would not purchase again. I think there are better lip moisturizing products out there. I’m not going to settle for less.

NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil:

I like lip oils. They are hydrating and leave the lips feeling moisturized by the end of the day. I love using them at night too before I go to sleep. I wake up with soft, moisturized lips! I think these lip oils are OK. For some reason, I don’t have the urge to buy them again. It was nice to try them out though. NYX is a cruelty-free brand. Some of their products are vegan. The lip oils are vegan. BUT, keep in mind that their parent company L’Oreal is not. That’s another reason why I won’t buy them again. I don’t really need these lip care products. They are not a necessity. I would much prefer to support a brand/parent company that doesn’t test on animals and are vegan.

Those are my thoughts on EOS Lip Balm and NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil. I hope this helped!

Do I use Protein Supplements?

Vegan Protein Supplements

I talked about supplements yesterday. What about protein supplements? Am I taking protein supplements???

Well…

I have two tubs of protein powder sitting around. The thing is, I haven’t touched them since. I try to. I don’t know. I prefer to eat actual food over taking protein supplements. I do like protein snacks, such as cookies and especially bars. Those fit in my meal plans quite nicely. But, protein powders are last on my list. I used to love them, by the way. 😋 Even though I haven’t been using protein powders for months. I’m very happy that none of my protein powders have expired yet. 👍

As you can see from the photo, I have Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder (Vanilla) and Orgain Organic Protein Powder (Creamy Chocolate Fudge). With Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder, the reason why I haven’t been using it is because it tastes quite awful. It just doesn’t taste good to me at all. It doesn’t matter what I put in my protein shake. I don’t like the taste of it. What I like about it is the amino acid profile. On the other hand, Orgain isn’t too bad, which I’m leaning towards to using more often.

I’m trying to get back in shape again, so I think it’s about time to utilize these protein powders. I’m not lacking protein or anything like that as a vegetarian. I get enough protein in a day. But, protein does seem to keep me fuller much longer throughout the day. I have these protein powders. Why not use them instead of wasting them??!! So let’s begin this transformation! Wish me luck! 😊
