Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

Bite Beauty
Next up on the hit parade of new products I have picked up from Bite Beauty is the Agave Lip Mask. Described as "a soothing, leave-on lip mask that replenishes moisture in lips," the Agave Lip Mask, like other Bite products, features a variety of food grade ingredients that will nourish your lips, including organic agave nectar and jojoba oil. 


I picked up this lip treatment because it sounded fairly unique and because I have found that my lips have been peeling and flaking more than normal this winter (damn you, polar vortex!) I normally slather on a layer of either Carmex, Dior Baume de Rose, or a Nivea balm right before I go to bed, but I wanted to take a step up in my regime and the Agave Lip Mask seems to fit the bill perfectly. 


The lip mask comes in a metal tube and is sealed upon arrival (you have to use the lid to puncture the metal seal, which both keeps the product fresh and ensures it will be untouched until you open it). The product is initially very thick, so much so that it is a bit difficult to get out of the tube. The advantage of that is that it is difficult to waste product--a very good thing when a (small) tube of this stuff is $26. The thickness begins to dissipate as the products warms on your lips, making it easier to apply. It remains thicker than the average chapstick, but it is not sticky in the slightest. It also gives a sheen to the lips. 


It doesn't tingle on the lips, but I can definitely feel it doing something. That sensation isn't painful or uncomfortable, but it is something I notice when I apply it.  I've been testing the lip mask out for a week and I've noticed that it has consistently stayed on my lips throughout the entire night. And while this product doesn't produce the miracle of giving you the pillowy lips of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley overnight, it has definitely moisturized my lips. I normally slough off skin from my lips everyday, but since I started using this product, I've noticed that I don't need to do this--despite wearing some pretty drying lip products for the past week.

Size comparison with my iphone
All in all, this is a lovely product and it has definitely kept my lips moisturized and hydrated. But is it worth $26? If you are a Bite Beauty addict like me and you have some spare change laying around, pick up this product and I doubt you will be disappointed. But it's not absolutely life changing and you can probably achieve the same results with a good lip scrub and some Carmex. 

The Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask is available on Sephora.com
