I am a huge fan of lip balm. I feel incomplete if I don’t have anything on my lips. I love to have my lips feeling soft and moisturized.
I discovered Eco Lips which offers lip balm made with nutrient rich organic ingredients. It’s lip balm that is good for people as well as the planet!
When I found out I was getting to review some products from Eco Lips, I was very excited. When the products arrived and I saw the wonderful lip balms, I didn’t know which one to try first. My son often swipes my lip balm. It all started one winter when he was suffering from chapped lips and I gave him one of my tubes of lip balm to carry with him and apply to avoid more chapped lips. He discovered how wonderful his lips can feel when using lip balm and has established the same love for lip balm that I have. I decided to give my son two of the Eco Lips lip balms I received. The first one is Eco Lips Pure & Simple Kiwi-Strawberry.
This lip balm is 100% edible, which is one reason I decided to give it to my son. My son loved the fruity scent and flavor and how smooth it was. It contains certified organic ingredients; sunflower oil, beeswax, kiwi and strawberry flavor; and also includes vitamin E. Due to its purity, it’s a great lip balm for kids.
The second lip balm I gave to my son, from Eco Lips’ co-branded lip care line, is the Honest Kids Tropical Tango Punch.
This lip balm is also great for kids. It is 100% edible and USDA Certified Organic. The Honest Kids lip balms are flavor-matched to Honest Tea’s kids line of fruit juices. My son said it goes on smooth and the scent and flavor are awesome. It has certified organic ingredients sunflower seed oil, beeswax, tropical flavor, jojoba seed oil, Calendula flower extract and also includes vitamin E.
Both of these lip balms moisturize with organic plant oils, beeswax, and aloe vera and contain natural earth minerals that give your lips a shimmering glow. They are carmine free, gluten-free, cruelty free, free of nano-particles and contain no hydrogenated oils. Eco Tints Rose Quartz is a sheer rose mineral-tinted lip balm while the Eco Tints Sugar Plum is a sheer berry-wine mineral-tinted lip balm. Both of these lip balms go on smooth and give your lips a beautiful shimmering tint that would be fun to wear in the place of lipstick. I love that these lip balms add color to your lips while moisturizing them.
From Eco Lips premium lip care line, I received the Eco Lips Hemp Lip Balm.
This lip balm is made with Certified Organic Manitoba Harvest hemp seed oil and is nutrient rich with herbs and vitamins. Hemp seed oil is a very thin oil that easily absorbs into the skin and delivers Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids including gamma linoleic acid (GLA), a rare nutrient also found in mother’s milk. The lip balm delivers a natural balance of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) and essential amino acids. These nutrients help your lips stay soft, moist, and supple. One of the ingredients included is organic vanilla flavor, which gives the lip balm a great scent and flavor.
And last, but not least, from the specialty line, I received Eco Lips Energy Lip Balm.
This is my favorite lip balm! It is a unique lip balm, infused with caffeine, green tea, and vitamin B12. Unlike most “energy” products which are absorbed through the digestive system, the infusion of Eco Lips Energy transfers the nutrients directly into your body through your lips and mouth, resulting in a quicker surge of energy utilizing a smaller dose of ingredients. I love how the organic spearmint oil and organic peppermint oil make your lips feel cool and tingly. That, combined with the caffeine, gives a great feeling boost without jitters!
Eco Lips is a company that cares about people and the planet. Their lip balms are cruelty free and petroleum free. Eco Lips is a member of Organic Trade Association and approved for people and the planet by Co-op America.
