Admittedly, I am not such a beauty product junkie. I am not the girl who will try every new color trend (neon green eyelids? no thanks...), and I have a minor heart attack if the drugstore is out of the same Mabelline Great Lash Mascara I've used for the past eight years (saying that I am a creature of habit is an understatement). But therefore, when I find a product I like, I stick with it. Forever. (Or until it is discontinued...at which point I have a major heart attack.)
One product I can't live without is good lip balm. I'm not such a lipstick person (I wear a ton of eye make-up and need to keep my lips pretty simple), but all year-round, I am always on the hunt for the perfect lip balm for a little protection (from the cold in the winter and the sun in the summer) and a little kissable shine. I prefer a tube (I'm not such a fan of those messy pots), and am very picky about flavor (anything chemical-ly or overly sweet is out immediately). So when the brand-new beecause lip balm arrived at the Stylewhipped offices, I was instantly in love...
Not only does this one come in a perfectly sized little tube with pretty packaging, but it is 100% natural, made from a beeswax base (get it? "beecause"...), and has a certified organic status. It contains zero parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals or phthalates, and is "CCIC Leaping Bunny Certified," meaning none of our beloved little animals are used in testing it. Even that pretty packaging is recyclable and completely earth-friendly. But the even more important thing here (c'mon, we love the do-good-er stuff, but we really also want a quality product!) is that this is some seriously amazing lip balm! It is peppermint flavored (with a subtle hint of honey from the actual beeswax it's made from), it goes on super easily, doesn't leave that icky film, and makes your lips soft, smooth and make-up (or kissing) ready.
Your lips (and maybe someone else's) will thank you for this one. I know mine are.
