Who should use Motives Hydrating Lip Balm?
Motives Hydrating Lip Balm is for everyone, but it is particularly ideal for those with chapped lips.
What is the difference between Motives Hydrating Lip Balm and Motives Vitamin E Lip Treatment?
Motives Vitamin E Lip Treatment helps restore the moisture content in lips for naturally supple lips. Motives Hydrating Lip Balm hydrates lips instantly, but it is not meant to be an overall treatment.
During which seasons should I use Motives Hydrating Lip Balm?
Motives Hydrating Lip Balm can be used year round; however, it is particularly useful during the summer and winter months. The hours spent under the sun in summer can create dry lips that need moisture. Winter's cold temperatures and strong winds cause lips to become chapped, but using Motives Hydrating Lip Balm can soothe and hydrate lips.
Does Motives Hydrating Lip Balm have any fragrance or taste?
Motives Hydrating Lip Balm does not have a strong smell; however, it tastes like tangerine. This gives it a citrus flavour that is absolutely delightful.
