Teadora Nourishing Lip Butter – Rainforest at Dusk
It’s no secret that I consider my lips to be one of my best assets… well, besides the fact that I’m well endowed in other areas, but that is definitely a subject for another post… teehee. While I do have my cult and holy grail favorites when it comes to lip care items, I am a sucker for lip butters and I am willing to spend the price on one that works and does the job just as it says. I can count my favorites on one hand so I was quite intrigued to see how this particular one would match up with some of my favorites. Having never tried the Teadora Nourishing Lip Butter before (or any of the products from this brand for that matter), I couldn’t wait to put it to the test.
Let me start by saying that anything and I mean anything that smells like chocolate that I can put on my face… is already a seller for me. Immediately upon opening the packaging and before opening the little box the lip butter came in – I could smell a soft hint of chocolate. Nothing overpowering but enough of a fragrance that I was immediately entranced by it. This lip butter (in a very generous sized pot) retails for $15.00 and includes 0.5oz/15mL worth of product. Now, if you know anything about me… it’s that as much as I love Lip Butters, I’m not a fan of the pot and the fact I have to dip my hands into it to get the product out. But, I’m not gonna lie, I have and will continue to make the exception with this product.
The lip balm is quite firm at first touch so using this as a balm and applying with your fingers is definitely best. It’s as easy as swirling your finger on the balm and rubbing onto your lips. I love that this can also be used as a light exfoliant before moisturizing. Simply scoop a larger portion of the butter with your finger, apply to your lips, and lightly remove with a damp warm wash cloth. After you are done exfoliating, go ahead and swirl your finger on the butter again and apply to your lips to moisturize for soft lips that last all day. The balm not only smells like berry and chocolate but it has a light flavor of chocolate with a hint of berry too.
Each lip butter is packed with antioxidant and vitamin-rich Buriti, Brazil Nut, Andoriba, Maracuja (passion fruit), Acai oils, Cupuacu, Murumuru, Mango butters plus Carnauba Wax to help moisturize your lips, add extra vitamins needed to heal your lips, protect them from UV Rays, anti-aging benefits and so much more. The Acai-Acu (which has that berry chocolate flavor) also provides the light exfoliation and hydration for your lips making this product a benefit for your puckers.

Not into a chocolaty flavor or scent? Don’t worry, because Teadora offers this lip butter in two scents/flavors: Dawn (which has a citrus type scent/flavor) and Dusk which is this one having a chocolate/berry scent and flavor.
I absolutely love that Teadora’s Lip Butters are 100% vegan. They are free of parabens, synthetic fragrance, silicone, gluten, phthalate, sulfates and other harsh chemicals which we try so hard to avoid in our skincare today. This product has become a favorite in my daily routine, especially now during the colder months when my lips are most dry. The pot seals up nicely which allows me to travel with it or toss it in my purse without any issues and while the pot includes much more product than I would expect, I love that this gives me the opportunity to do double duty and use as both a lip butter or light lip scrub.
For the price point on this item, you are getting two in one and a delicious treat for your lips. I definitely recommend this product and I know it will be one of my favorites moving forward. I can’t wait to try out Dawn. Also, by purchasing Teadora products, you are also supporting sustainable agriculture in Brazil to help stop rainforest deforestation.
