Quench Lip Treatment by YBF Skincare is an antioxidant lip balm that claims to soothe dry chapped lips and provide anti-aging benefits.
Ingredients: beeswax, cupuacu butter, ethylhexyl palmitate, meadowfoam seed oil, triglyceride, ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate/tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (vitamin C), vitamin e, blueberry seed oil, spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), peppermint oil, clementine oil, Lipochroman-6 (dimethylmethoxy chromanol)
Beeswax seals in moisture. Cupuacu butter is moisturizing and deeply penetrating. Ethylhexyl palmitate is a derivative of palm oil often used as an organic replacement to silicone and provides a slip feel. Meadowfoam seed oil has antioxidant properties and skin softening benefits. This has vitamin C as ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate/tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, derived from vitamin C and isopalmitic acid. This acts as an antioxidant, protecting the skin from cell damage after exposure to the sun. This has vitamin E and blueberry seed oil, which are antioxidants and provide hydration. Blueberry seed oil is high in omega 3 fatty acids. Like most other YBF products, Quench contains spin trap and Lipochroman-6, two potent antioxidants. Peppermint and clementine oils provide a nice fragrance, taste and a slight tingle to the lips.
I’ve been using this lip balm for a couple years now. Previous to this I had been using an oil based lip balm, so when using Quench for the first couple times it seemed rather waxy and heavy. Once I had gotten used to this feeling, I found this lip balm not heavy, but moisturizing. It penetrates the skin but the lips still feel moisturized a few hours after application. It doesn’t feel greasy or like its just sitting on top the skin, and provides a matte finish to the lips. Lipstick goes on over this quite nicely. In the cold winter weather it has prevented and healed dry, cracked lips. When my lips get chapped or dry it only takes a couple applications of Quench to heal the lips. Once or twice a week before bed I’ll gently exfoliate my lips with a toothbrush and put this balm on immediately after. This takes off dead skin and the lips feel quite soft in the morning. I haven’t found many “must-have” products, but Quench Lip Treatment is one of them.
