These Softlips CUBE lip moisturizers have been popping up at drugstores everywhere lately so I was super excited when Mentholatum sent me some to try out. Even better, they're offering a prize package for one of my readers too (read on for more details).

Vanilla Bean and Berry Bliss

Softlips is known for its "skinny tube" packaging so this new cube design is quite a departure from the norm. About 1 inch wide, they actually aren't that all that big but still might be uncomfortable if you're the type who likes to stash lip balm in your pockets. The product inside is spherical (just like eos lip balms), which I like since I find this shape easy to apply. Plus, I personally think the roundness is adorable.

The CUBE lip moisturizers also feature 5-in-1 lip perfecting technology to hydrate, replenish, smooth, protect, and add shine. My lips feel moisturized immediately upon use and I don't have to continuously reapply. Both Vanilla Bean and Berry Bliss are pleasant scents/flavours, although my favourite of the two is Berry Bliss for its delicious fruity notes. At only $4.99 CAD, these are a great purchase for lip product lovers!


Now for that giveaway I mentioned earlier... Mentholatum is kindly offering a giveaway prize worth $50 which includes 1 Softlips CUBE in Berry Bliss, 1 Softlips CUBE in Vanilla Bean, 1 clutch purse with a zipper chain wristlet, and 1 purse mirror.

To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me why you're excited to try the new Softlips CUBE and don't forget to leave an e-mail address so I can contact you.

For a bonus entry, follow me on Twitter and tweet the following: "I just entered to win a Softlips CUBE prize package from @alison_elle and you should too! -"
