You know that age old question "If you were stuck on an island, what 3 things would you bring with you..? Two of mine would be lip balms. For the record, the last item would be my Blankie, which is by far my most prized possession I own. I've had it since I was an infant and couldn't sleep a night without it. I used to take it on sleepovers too. It's with me when I watch TV too. It's literally my life. I digress.
I am a *certified* lip balm junkie. I've mentioned this before, and I mean it. You won't find me without lip balm in my possession no matter where I am or what I'm doing. This time of year it's especially important to keep your lips moisturized. I already had some irritation from the weather, so I decided to try a new lip balm, considering my trusted Hurraw Moon Balm, my favorite of the balms, wasn't cutting it.
I bought two, but today I wanna talk about Coconut Smoothie by Earth Mama Angel Baby. They have different flavors but this one sounded the most up my alley. Here's the ingredients, as listed on their website:
"Cocos nucifera (organic coconut) oil, Theobroma cacao (organic cocoa) seed butter, Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, Organic coconut flavor oil, Vanilla planifolia (organic vanilla), Calendula officinalis (organic calendula) flower extract"
I really like this balm. The scent is amazing. It's definitely heavy on the coconut and lacking in the vanilla, but that's me nitpicking since vanilla is my favorite. You can really feel that the coconut oil is the first ingredient, it's really smooth and soothing. It absorbs nicely into your lips, and I like that it doesn't just sit on top of your lips. And it's certified organic!
Each tube is $3 and available on their website. Check them out!
Happy Lip Balming!
