Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub Review

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub Review

Hello! For a while now, my Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub has been sitting in my bathroom waiting to be used. Since my birthday in June, more specifically, because it was part of my Beauty Insider birthday treat from Sephora. Don’t ask me why I never used it, because I don’t know. But, I am glad that I held off, because it definitely came in handy last week!

While I was sick with the flu, my skin suffered because I was so dehydrated. My lips took a real beating, and by the time I was feeling better, they were raw from the cracking and peeling. I was picking at them until they bled (Shame on me!), and there still seemed to be dead skin that I wasn’t getting. So, I enlisted the help of the Bite balm and scrub.

First, I used the sugar scrub to buff my lips and try to remove any excess skin that was hanging on. The scrub tasted great – like sugar and honey. It worked well, too! I let it sit on my lips and rubbed them back and forth for a handful of minutes and they felt awesome after wiping the product off. They were so smooth and a good amount of yucky stuff came off, too. But, not all of the huge pieces of skin that hurt too bad to remove came off.

Instead of trying to take matters into my own hands, I applied the balm. The Agave Balm was nice and thick and I put a generous amount on my lips. Both the balm and scrub had a really tasty honey aroma, and the balm sat really well – no budges or anything. After an hour or so, I checked the progress on my lips and was able to remove the rest of the excess pain free. It also helped take away the stinging pain that comes with severely chapped lips.

My lips felt really good after using the sugar scrub and balm duo. It felt amazing to get them back to feeling normal after being so sick and they were even better than how they were before falling ill. I liked this product, and I would love to make a DIY sugar scrub so that I can indulge in this treat more often. I don’t think that I would purchase the Bite Beauty combination, though, just because a cheaper alternative is definitely out there somewhere!

Bite Beauty Lip Crayon Swatch In Glace

Bite Beauty Lip Crayon Swatch In Glace

Hi! As promised, today we are going to swatch the second gift from my Sephora birthday freebie – their lip crayon in Glace! The swatching experience for this lippie was an unfortunate one, because after I snapped my pictures, I dropped the crayon on my white carpet. :((((( It was a hot mess, but a blogger’s job is never easy, so let’s get on with the show:

As described in yesterday’s post, this lip crayon by Bite definitely has a minty smell to it, which certainly makes for a different sensation when wearing a lipstick! As disappointed at myself as I am for dropping this on the carpet, I think that Glace is a lovely shade. It doesn’t have as glossy of a look to it as yesterday’s swatch did, which I like a lot, because I am a matte girl at heart.

This lip crayon is especially nice, because the size of it doesn’t feel like a mini one at all, as opposed to the itty bitty lipstick from yesterday. It’s cool that a huge company like Sephora genuinely wants to pamper their costumers on their big day, because this crayon will definitely last for a good long while. But, then again, who am I to talk considering I’ve only finished one tube of lipstick in my entire life! :’D

Bite Beauty Lipstick Swatch In Chai

Bite Beauty Lipstick Swatch In Chai

Howdy everyone and happy Monday! I am really feeling my birthday treats from Sephora – a lipstick, lip crayon, and lip balm and scrub by Bite Beauty. I finally have gotten a chance to swatch them and am feeling it EVEN MORE! Take a looksee at Chai and then tune in tomorrow to see the swatch of the lip crayon in Glace!

Aside from my initial first impression on this lipstick being gorgeous, my second one was that it smelled awesome! This lippie had a very minty smell to it, which is great because it looks pretty and freshens your breath. How can you refuse that sales pitch?!

In my initial article about my Sephora birthday gift, I mentioned how both this shade and the color I’m swatching tomorrow will look lovely on literally anyone, and I stand by that statement wholeheartedly. Chai has such a soft, dusty rose undertone to it, which works well with any skin tone, hair, or eye color. I like that Sephora really thinks about what will be the most inclusive shades for their birthday treats and completely knocks it out of the park each time.

This is my second year in a row getting a birthday prezzie from Sephora, and I am equally, if not more, satisfied with the Bite Beauty kit this time around. Chai is a perfect date night shade and can easily transition from work to play while still looking appropriate. This color is also suitable for all four seasons because it truly sits right in the middle of too dark and too light, making it an amazing shade all year round.

What has been your favorite birthday gift from Sephora? Who is a fan of Bite Beauty products? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift

Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift

Hi!! Before I even began shopping at Sephora, and by shopping I mean just buying Better Than Sex mascara, I was sure to sign up for their Beauty Insider rewards program to cash in on free product for my birthday. This year, you could choose between a mini moisturizer and mud treatment by Glamglow or a lip kit by Bite. Of course, I chose the lipsticks to experiment with the gorgeous shades offered in the prezzie. I’ll swatch them later but, for now, check out how nice this freebie is:

Seen Below:

  • Mini Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai
  • Mini Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace
  • Agave Lip Treatment Sample Duo (A scrub and balm)

I am completely in love with both the lipstick and lip crayon by Bite. Chai and Glace are shades that would look great on anyone, and it’s always fun to try out new makeup – especially products that you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself. And, the scrub and balm sample duo will be great during a spa night to keep my lips pucker perfect!

Check back soon for swatches of each shade! ❤

Which birthday freebie from Sephora would you choose? Which stores and eateries have the best rewards programs? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
