Natural Lip Balms For People Who LOVE Balms!

I spend an incredible amount of time at my desk writing songs, writing blog posts and managing my band.  As I sit here, I have a draw full of lip balms that I apply throughout the day.  I've always need to have something on my lips and since no one is around, lipstick/gloss aren't really necessary.  Today I applied Splurge Skincare's Lemon Lip Buttah about 5 times and each time I thought about what a stellar product it is, how delicious it smells and how awesome it's texture is and then I thought, "Wow, I should be writing a post on the best balms!"   


Wow.  Just wow.  The smell of Splurge Skincare's Lemon Lip Buttah is just amazing.  Why hasn't everyone thought to do a lip balm in lemon?  As you can see from the picture to the right, the shape of their balms are oval, making it so much fun to apply.  Beyond that, it really, really feels great on and works!  Oh, and by the way, I just heard that they've come out with TINTED Lip Buttahs in three colors, so if you're a girl who loves to get yer tint on, check them out here.

Their ingredients are clean and wonderful, too:

Babassu oil (orbignya oleifera), organic cocoa butter (theobroma cacao), beeswax (cera alba), sweet almond oil (prunus amygdalus dulcis), organic castor oil (ricinus communis), litsea cubeba essential oil, bitter almond essential oil (prunus amygdalus amara - prussic acid free), vitamin E (tocopherol)


I'm a BIG fan of skinnyskinny.  I've done a lot of write-ups about their products since I started this blog.
One of my favorites (next to their Foot Scrub) is their Bare & Naked Lip Balm.  Now, I've got all of their balms, but for some reason, there's something about this unscented balm that has a scent that I love...something that's all-natural in there just smells so comforting.  They also have Clover Honey Citrus and Tea Tree & Mint.  For $6, I would just say get yourself all three to try and let me know what you're loving.
Ingredients: beeswax*, avocado oil*, cocoa butter*, virgin coconut oil*, calendula-infused extra-virgin olive oil*, honey*. *certified organic ingredients

**I was just going to post about another one of my favorites, but after looking it up online, found that it contained Benzyl Benzoate, making it no longer a favorite.  Although the jury is still out on some of these ingredients, I'm not taking any chances by recommending them to my readers who are trying to stay clean and green.  Enjoy the brands posted, for they will offer only the best for your precious lips and health!


  1. Lol I so know what you mean by the shape of the lip balm making it really fun to apply because that's often one thing I take into consideration when trying out new lip balms such as the eos balm now that one is really fun to apply!

    1. I know! I have the eos one, too. We're probably nuts, but who cares, right? Thanks for reading. K

  2. If you like the oval lemon, you should definitely try Hurraw! balms if you haven't already. Lemon, orange, Grapfruit, Lime... I bought one and two weeks later I had five. They're seriously addictive! (Annnnd, they're only $3.79.)

    Enjoying looking through your blog. :)

  3. I glad you like it because their products didn't work out for me!
