I Wonder: "Any Fragrance-Free Lip Moisturizers Out There?"

During my first trimester of pregnancy, I was one of the "lucky" pregnant women who suffer from heightened sense of smell!  I am not joking when I tell you that I literally vomit within seconds upon opening up a tub of face cream!  It was during those times I realized, keeping myself beautiful isn't a priority anymore!  Steering clear from vomiting is definitely the number ONE priority back then!  

Who cares about smooth, moisturized skin or lesser under eye circles when you feel like throwing up all the time?  I would love to raise my hands with you ladies but unfortunately, when my lips were starting to crack and bleed, I told myself I have to take action and search for non-scented skincare and lip care products!

UNFORTUNATELY, it wasn't easy!  Petroleum jelly?  Sad to say, they still have a specific "petroleum jelly-ish" scent!  Mint?  Who says mint-scented lip moisturizers can help stop you from throwing up?  Trust me, it didn't work!

So off I went to search for a non-scented lip products and I wasn't able to find any!  (or I wasn't looking close enough!).

Thankfully, my sister-in-law told me about the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer with SPF15 that she bought during our Hong Kong trip and immediately offered it to me!  Because of that, I was able to smile in this photo!

I wasn't able to take a product shot of it so I grabbed one over the internet.  (source)
"Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer softens, smoothes and protects dry, chapped lips with no waxy feel.  This moisture-enriched formula soothes and conditions your lips, keeping them healthy looking and soft in all weather.  Contains a PABA-free SPF 15 sunblock for added protection from the sun.  Leaves lips soft, smooth and moisturized.  Fragrance-free."

Overall, I can't say it's the best lip balm out there but it's the best in terms of protecting my lips from extreme dryness during my most sensitive pregnancy days!  I'm sure not all pregnant women are as lucky as I am to have a sister-in-law who shared to me her fragrance-free lip moisturizer so it's time to help other sensitive noses out there!

  1. Haven't tried any fragrance free lip moisturizers yet. But I'm using The face Shop lip cream now and it's not intense "smelling" too :P

    1. Hmm..I haven't thought about The Face Shop Lip cream, does it smell like lip balm? I just can't take the waxy scent!

  2. I think Burt's bees has one, yung beeswax formula lang nila. No scent pero staying power is less than the mango lip butter variant.

    1. ay oo, I've tried it! Pwede din yon :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. You should try making your own! I have before and theyre great little presents to give people.
