Teadora Rainforest at Dusk Nourishing Lip Butter | Review

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

My unbridled love of lip balms and butters is certainly a well known fact, but every once in a while one comes along that sweeps me off of my feet– as is the case with the Teadora Rainforest At Dusk Nourishing Lip Butter.  It was essentially love and first sight, sniff and swatch. The first time that I opened the jar I closed my eyes and deeply inhaled the delectable scent of chocolate and berries that smell so delicious that one might be tempted to eat it!

Teadora Rainforest at Dusk Nourishing Lip Butter is an antioxidant and vitamin rich formula filled with high quality natural ingredients that deeply nourish and moisturize the lips at an extraordinary rate of speed. That it is a richly moisturizing and healing lip butter becomes immediately evident as it heals chapped lips at record speed. This would be enough reason to love this lip butter, but it also has the dual function of serving as a light lip exfoliator as well.  Tiny semi-gritty particles gently scrub the lips before they melt, and the result is soft, supple and smooth lips that are deeply moisturized. Not only does it feel amazing, but the improved condition of your lips coupled with the delectable scent makes this a truly amazing find.
According to Teadora,

Our Nourishing Lip Butter comes with an unique blend of amazing ingredients, such as Buriti, Brazil Nut, Andoriba, Maracujá (Passion Fruit), Açaí oils, Cupuaçu, Murumuru, Mango butters plus Carnauba Wax. These ingredients are full of free radical-fighting antioxidants, vitamins and oleic and fatty acids that help to revitalize your skin.

Purely delicious. With healing ingredients from the rainforests of Brazil, this dual action butter can serve as a light exfoliant, as well as a natural moisturizer that softens your lips as its juicy, berry-chocolate Açaí-Açu flavor deligths your senses.
Suggested use:

Gently swirl your finger on butter and apply it to your lips for moisturizing. If you want to activate a light exfoliant action before moisturizing, scoop a larger portion of the butter with your finger and apply, then lightly swirl your finger on butter again and generously apply to lips for moisture after exfoliation. For ongoing, continued lip softness, apply several times a day and always before lipstick or lip gloss application. Love yourself, find your joy, share your passion.
Another reason to love Teadora products is because of their commitment to sustainability, and their desire to help stop rainforest deforestation in Brazil:

You are also funding a philanthropy exchange between the US and Brazil that promotes youth education, leadership development, and health. Be part of this movement we are calling EARTH FOR YOU.

Attributes of Selected Ingredients:

Buriti is an amazingly powerful ingredient, which contains the highest concentration of natural vitamin A among fruits and vegetables. It is also rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin C and antioxidants. It has also been used for generations as a natural UV ray protectant. It's amazing anti-inflamatory properties can also help to keep your lips healthy and free of cracks and sores.

Murumuru butter comes from the fruit of a Brazilian palm tree, its unique composition of essential fatty acids and vitamins soothes, heals, and helps to restore elasticity to damaged or aging skin.

Carnaúba wax is deliciously vegan. It is also known as world's firmest natural wax, its wonderful, glossy texture protects and smoothes skin. Made from sustainably sourced Brazilian palm leaves, it's the ideal plant-based alternative to beeswax.

Maracujá (or Passion Fruit) is known as the "Pure Miracle" in Brazil as it brightens, moisturizes, heals, and repairs skin and hair without feeling greasy or heavy. Good for all skin types--from dry to oily.

Açaí-Açu is one of the Açaí berry species found in the Amazon. It has a stronger flavor in comparison to the Açaí super fruit we are used to. Its tree is known for having a taller trunk and for producing bigger and more abundant fruits. Its pulp is 70% superior to the globally known Açaí!
Overall Assessment: A truly amazing lip butter from a wonderful company! If you prefer a citrusy lip butter, then try their Rainforest at Dawn Nourishing Lip Butter, but if chocolate and berries light your heart afire then try their Rainforest at Dusk Nourishing Lip Butter.

    1. It's a really worthwhile lip balm to have in your stash, and it's easily attainable from their Amazon store! Slide it in before you instate your no buy and you are good!

      It is, and I had no idea that it was passion fruit either! I got your email, and made that same discovery yesterday morning, but was so busy yesterday that I spaced out (not to mention that stress had me fairly singular in my focus). I actually had a bunch of stuff in my basket, but had to deal with work stuff and abandoned it. Did you partake?

  17. My lip butter came today and I have put on my lips a few times. It really does smell like chocolate (which may be a bad thing for me if it makes me want to eat chocolate all day!). Anyway, is yours completely solid/hard? Mine has no 'give' to it at all. The heat from my finger melts it so that I can apply a little onto my lips but, though it feels nice and smells even better, it doesn't seem to be doing much moisturizing. My lips are already dry from the cold here and I guess I was hoping for some instant relief.

    1. Yes, mine is also completely solid and hard. As soon as the warmth of my finger touches it it warms up and becomes emollient– just as you have described. I find mine quite moisturizing, but I will say if you use extra as they describe then it seems to activate the exfoliating action to remove dead skin from the lips. I wonder if this is why yours seem to remain dry? I found that I got pretty instant relief when I applied it to my chapped lips.

    2. i usually find with products like this it works better if you just dig a small lump out with your nail or spatula and plop it directly onto your lips. the warmth of your lips will melt the product then you can smush it around

      Delete
    3. That definitely works, but I have been rubbing my ring finger over the surface and find that I get enough product that way, and have been very satisfied by the results!

      Delete
  18. so the particles melt after exfoliation? no need to rinse off?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have never needed to rinse it off, and the particles just dissolve on their own, at least that has been my experience, but I don't find that I need to use very much product to get the desired results. You will have to experiment to see what works best for you.
