I am a certified lip balm junkie. That's no joke. I have one in my purse, three at work, one on my nightstand, one downstairs, and about 4 million back ups. I take lip balm with me every where I go. If I was stuck on an island and could only bring 3 things, one, if not two, of them would be lip balm. I have it on my lips 24/7/365. With that being said, every time I hear of a new vegan lip balm, I'm like, I need to try this! I was browsing through Instagram, I stumbled upon a post from someone I follow ranting and raving about Epic Blend lip balm. Naturally, I had to try it.
Epic Blend is a Canadian company that offers both vegan and non-vegan lip balm. They're a cruelty free company, that uses only high quality natural ingredients. They're products are gluten free, petroleum free, and they don't use any GMO's. They have hemp balms and also more moisture lip balms, both are non-vegan. They even offer a tinted balm, which is also non-vegan. Most of their ingredients are organic.
They offer a variety of flavors, but they only have 4 vegan flavors. They are: peach, chocolate, wild berry, and pineapple mint. I do hope to see more vegan flavors in the future. I chose to order the chocolate and wild berry. I received my order and was surprised to see that they included an additional lip balm for free!
The lip balms came in a cute little reusable drawstring eco-friendly bag.
Here's the lip balms themselves:
As tempted as I am to open them all and try them all, I refrained and only opened the chocolate as I needed a new one for work. The chocolate scent is awesome. It reminds me of a warm cup of hot chocolate. The lip balm is smooth and it goes on very nicely and lasts a few hours before I had to reapply. Overall, I'm really happy with my purchase and I recommend that you try them too!
You can purchase any of their products from their website. They offer free shipping on Canadian orders of $15, and USA orders of $20. And, if you sign up for their mailing list, you get 20% off your first order. Each balm is $3.49 CAD. When you pay it converts to American dollars. I ordered 2 lip balms, plus $4 shipping, and my 20% off, and my total was $9.58 CAD. When I paid through PayPal, I ended up paying $7.58 USD, which I thought was a pretty fair price.
If you have any vegan lip balms you think I need to try, leave me a comment! I'm always on the prowl for new ones!
