Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus If I keep using mine, I wonder what my replacement would be.  I might try Lanolips again, or just straight up lanolin b/c I read on BIC it is way cheaper.  IDK, it's one ingredient I'm not familiar with at all.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@greeneyedgirl107  I wasn't either, until I looked into it a while ago after finding out about the bite mask and how crazy ppl were for it.  after looking at the ingredients and seeing lanolin was one of the first ingredients, I looked it up and that's what led me to lanolips.  it supposedly uses a 'higher-grade' lanolin, that's cosmetic grade (or is it pharmaceutical? lol).  anyway, if you didn't know, it's from sheep's wool, and there are different 'grades'.  apparently you can get it in stores like in the baby section (natural grocers has it, I think), but since there are different grades and since it's from sheep's wool, that's basically why lanolips uses a 'higher-grade' that you'd wanna use on your face, lol.  since the lower grades are apparently dirtier and you probably wouldn't wanna use them for your face/lips.  if you get some and try it let us know how it works!!  I wonder if just adding the lanolin to another lip balm or mixing it in would work?I still have a bunch of lanolips I need to use though lol. 😁

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@treestar86 That's really good information!  Thanks for weighing in.  I still have a good amount of my original Bite mask left, so it'll be a while before I need to investigate.  I will keep that in mind, though, as I'm much more likely to just spend the extra money for the higher grade -- esp for lips!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@greeneyedgirl107 DHC makes a pretty decent lip balm - but not the flavoured kinds, just the original. It's not a mask though, not as thick to last overnight. But good as a daytime replacement. The downside is, it's not as easy to find. I think it's a Japanese brand?

 

I haven't tried Lanolips either, maybe lanolin is what made the original mask so good?

@pocketvenus @greeneyedgirl107  DHC is avail. at ULTA, but not the lip balm. 😔

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus Thanks for the tip - I will keep the DHC on my radar!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes I think when Bite went vegan they reformulated @pocketvenus. Lanolips does have lanolin! I have a strawberry one that I like but it does not last as long as the old Bite did. Hmmm I haven’t tried the DHC, but I am guessing @itsfi has 🤔

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus, is this the DHC lip balm / cream you are referring to or the one in the tin?

I agree that it's a nice one for daytime, okay for overnight but not as thick as the original BITE mask. @greeneyedgirl107, it's available through DHC direct as well as amazon, dermstore, and yesstyle (dot) com. 

 

I wouldn't say these are exact dupes, but other lip balms / masks that are thick and moisturizing include:

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm

Bag Balm (but it doesn't smell so great)

MILK MAKEUP Melatonin Overnight Lip Mask 0.28 oz/ 8 g - not as thick as BITE but it does a nice job for me.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@itsfi So sorry I missed this tag! I literally saw the DHC pic while scrolling through threads and was like 🤔. Yes, this tube form is the one I was referring to and I didn't realize there's a tin! Thanks for your recommendations too!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@itsfi I went to place an order at Dermstore just the other day, and was saddened to learn that there is now a minimum of $35 in order to qualify for free shipping.  I understand why, but it was still a downer.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@greeneyedgirl107, that's a bummer. It's available on amazon, but only as a pack of 2 or 3, or in a bundle set with other skincare products. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus it’s definitely not on the same plain, but Henne has a pretty great lip mask. It’s different than the Bite, and the Laneige. It’s a little earthy but lasts. You can get a sample on their site, to test it out first, too.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@eshoe Thanks for the tip!  ❤️

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@eshoe hey thank you for the share about this lip mask balm.

 

I saw that you changed your avatar, and this one's still eating noodles, i like noodles too lol 🤗🤗🤗.

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Emy10 you’re welcome! I tried a couple of their lip scrubs and like those as well. Lush has my favorite, but Henne’s Nordic Berries is fantastic, too.

 

Ha ha yes I couldn’t believe I found that little character eating noodles! It makes me smile, ☺️

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I really miss the old lip mask formula (though I thankfully have some tubes that are going strong) and Cin Cin from their luminous creme formula.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Kaylabr So glad you stocked up! Such a pretty shade ❤️

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus ugh Bite Beauty lol. I never got to try the lip wipes I wanted. I'm also still bitter I didn't get my zodiac lip stick.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Samtian The zodiac lipsticks were such a cool set and idea!!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I really did like the French Press glosses and the previous lip mask formula.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@danielledanielle I regret not getting more from this set. I loved wearing Vanilla Latte and then dabbing a little of Fenty's Shawty in the middle of my lips for a bit of an ombre effect.
