Manuka Secrets Lip Lustre Pacific Paradise Purse Pal | Review

Manuka Secrets Lip Lustre Pacific Paradise Purse Pal was created to moisturize, plump, smooth and soften lips as well as to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around he lips. Furthermore, Manuka Secrets asserts that the UMF18+ Manuka Honey that they use in this product protects lips against environmental damage.

Manuka Secrets Lip Lustre leaves my lips very soft, supple and hydrated, and imparts a slight glossy sheen. It coats lips perfectly in a single pass, and has a lovely emollience that makes it feel wonderful on dry lips. Manuka Secrets describes its scent and flavor as a light fresh citrus/ tangerine, but I would elaborate that it has a warm, rather than sharp, citrus scent and taste that I find particularly pleasant.

I have worn it lightly as a lipstick base and I have used it to top off my lipsticks as well, but it feels so good on the lips that I often find myself rubbing my lips together– which certainly doesn't encourage longevity in lipstick wear-time! I keep a tube in my purse and another one on my nightstand, and both are getting lots of use.

According to Manuka Secrets,

For centuries honey has proven to enhance health and well-being. Manuka Secrets is rooted on the technology and uniqueness held within New Zealand's globally renowned Manuka/Tea tree bush and the UMF honey produced from its nectar.

The Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) Association verifies the purity and strength of Manuka Honey's unique properties globally. NATRUE is a global non-profit association that independently verifies only natural or organic ingredients have been used, no animal testing has been carried out and that the cosmetics have passed strict environmental and ethical standards.

Dr. Fernanda da Silva Tatley has uniquely crafted Manuka Secrets with sustainably sourced ingredients, ensuring a balance with nature and in harmony with its inhabitants. Manuka Secrets Manuka Honey is gathered from the purest most remote regions of New Zealand where this precious resource is managed and protected for future generations.
