Bite Beauty | *NEW* Agave+ Weekly Lip Scrub, Daytime Lip Balm & Nighttime Lip Therapy: Review
For Spring 2019, Bite Beauty has revamped its beloved Agave lip care lineup with formulations that are completely clean, vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free. Offering a nourishing Daytime Lip Balm ($18 CAD), a Nightime Lip Therapy ($26 CAD), and a Weekly Lip Scrub ($24 CAD), the new Agave+ Collection promises your "most succulent lips yet". I've had a chance to test-drive all three, so to read my reviews, click......

Bite Beauty | Agave+ Weekly Lip Scrub ($24 CAD for 20 g):
Reformulated and now housed in a plastic jar, the Agave+ Weekly Lip Scrub contains fair trade organic golden sugar and papaya enzyme which work in tandem to exfoliate dry patches and remove dead skin cells. I didn't much care for the original formulation as the sugar crystals were too sparse and the runny formulation settled easily. However, the new formulation is thicker in comparison and contains a lot more sugar particles, providing a more effective exfoliation that leaves the lips nourished but not greasy. If you want a scrubby lip scrub that also conditions, definitely give this a go!

Ingredients: Sucrose, Squalane, Glycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Water, Aroma/Flavor, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Sucrose Laurate, Papain, Vanilla Tahitensis Fruit Extract, Tocopherol, Maltodextrin, Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Metabisulfite.

Bite Beauty | Agave+ Daytime Lip Balm ($18 CAD for 4.2 g):
Originally released in 2017, the Agave Lip Balm was a rather tacky and waxy stick balm that just didn't jive with me. Thankfully, the new Agave+ formulation introduces a lighter, slicker texture thanks to a boost of agave nectar and mongongo oil. Like the lip scrub, the formulation is lightly scented with vanilla and while it still retains a heavier feel, the wear is much more nourishing and comfortable. I personally find it more suitable for nighttime wear but if you have extra dry lips, you can definitely wear it during the day as well.

Ingredients: Polyglyceryl-2 Isostearate/Dimer Dilineolate Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Oleic/Linoleic/Linolenic Polyglycerides, Tricaprylin, Cetearyl Candelillate, Hydroxystearic/Linolenic/Linoleic Polyglycerides, Octyldodecyl Oleate, Schinziophyton Rautanenii Kernal Oil, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Silica, Aroma/Flavor, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax/Oryza Sativa Bran Cera, Triethyl Citrate, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Allantoin, Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Momordica Grosvenorii Fruit Extract, Limonene, Linalool.
Bite Beauty | *NEW* Agave+ Nighttime Lip Therapy: Review
Bite Beauty | Agave+ Nighttime Lip Therapy
A new addition to the Bite Agave lineup, the Agave+ Nighttime Lip Therapy is a moisturizing balm-to-oil lip therapy formulated with agave nectar, jojoba oil, and pomegranate extract. With a light sweet fragrance and a balmy texture that's not much thicker than the Daytime Lip Balm (and much lighter as compared to the Agave Lip Masks), the Nighttime Lip Therapy comes with a small spatula applicator and a little goes a long, long way. The formulation melts on contact and although the finish is a tad heavy, it does ensure a long-lasting wear that makes the lips super soft and conditioned in the morning. Had this been packaged in a squeezable tube paired with a slanted applicator, it would really be my new go-to nighttime lip balm. However, despite the inconvenient packaging, I would still recommend it for those looking for some extra nighttime TLC.

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Triisostearoyl Polyglyceryl-3 Dimer Dilineolate, Oleic/Linoleic/Linolenic Polyglycerides, Squalane, Glyceryl Rosinate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Thus Verniciflua Peel Wax/Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Phytosteryl Canola Glycerides, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Aroma/Flavor, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Phospholipids, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Tocopherol, Punica Granatum Flower Extract, Ascorbyl Palmitate Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract, Momordica Grosvenorii Fruit Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Limonene, Linalool.

Although I've always loved Bite lipsticks, I've not been a fan of their lip care products. However, the introduction of these new Agave+ products has totally changed my mind! All three additions are wonderfully formulated so if you are looking for a great lip scrub and some heavy-duty, deeply nourishing lip balms, definitely give these a go!
