kosas hyaluronic lip fuel in pulse

a cushiony plump warm nude lip balm

Kosas very quickly became a staple brand in my Beauty Cabinet!

As a recap, at the end of the decade, I nixed makeup from my routine completely. On the way to our wedding in the Sonoma Coast, I realized on the drive up the Coastal Highway 1 that I left ALL my makeup and ALL my skincare {literally except for my everydayoil} at home.

When we got back, I decided to take a full month away from makeup. In fact, when I got home, I threw everything out!

As I started new, I was looking for one thing & one thing only:  Beauty with Benefits. To me, Beauty with Benefits tend to err more on the skincare side than makeup. Basically, making your skin look better even after you remove it – does this make sense? here & here & here are some examples. I find that the majority of Beauty with Benefits are on the clean & natural side so those are the kind of brands that interests me.

& that, my friends, is how I found Kosas. My gateway was rosewater and that very quickly led me to Pulse & my addiction still stands!

Sooooo let’s talk Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Acid Lip Balm, shall we?

When it comes to lips, I love anything cushiony – for that reason, I’m a huge fans of balms.

One of the most underrated balm shades in my book is a good nude. I feel like they are so hard to find, you know? It’s so easy to find pinks, reds, & berries but nudes in balms are a bit harder to find.

On Sephora, Pulse is described as a “sheer, warm tan” & that hits the nail on the head. On the Kosas website, it’s described as peach but either way it’s beautiful on and warms up my look.

As you apply LipFuel, it feels soooooo luxurious. The formula is amazing & I love the narrow shape. It really glides along your lips. In fact, the experience of putting it on is very satisfying.

Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Balm is insanely hydrating thanks to the hyaluronic acid formula & active botanicals. Other ingredients include konjac root, vitamins, & wild mint. It smells & tastes SO fresh! The fresh mint scent is soothing & energizing which is fun to swipe on before a yoga class. In fact, I really want the clear one for yoga! Mint also happens to be one of my personal fav flavors {mint chip ice cream for life} so I always love when balms are minty.

To run through the ingredients:

konjac root: gel-like & anchors to the hyaluronic acid spheres to help create a barrier on your lips. this protects your lips from environmental stressors all while completely nourishing them at the same time.

hyaluronic acid: hyaluronic acid spheres help lock in moisture. I look for this ingredient a lot since it’s so hydrating. The moisturizer I use is a hyaluronic acid formula too!

vitamin e: for all the smoothing, repairing, & plumping! Vitamin E also lends to that luxurious feel of the lip balm as you apply it

wild mint: to stimulate & energize, especially before a workout. Kosas claims that it helps mental agility & boosts motivation & I always feel ready to hit the mat after a swipe.

LipFuel also comes in clear & a shade called Rush, which is basically the balm version of Rosewater. It’s beautiful on too!

My one teeeeny tiny complaint on it is the packaging. I find it’s kind of messy & everytime I put the top back on, it seems to get some product smeared at the bottom. That said, I’ve thrown this balm in my gym bag &purse and appreciate that the lid has never popped off & ruined the balm.

I can’t say enough good things about Kosas and can’t wait to try more products from them. I love that Kosas is based in California & how good both the products feel & work.

Have you tried Kosas yet?? Any other Beauty with Benefits I need to try??

Erik & I are currently self-isolating & social distancing for the whole month so we’ve been a littleeee trigger happy with the online shopping. That said, if you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, I encourage you to stay home as much as possible as your schedule allows. Stay safe <3
