Many years ago I made the switch to organic, all-natural chapstick, and my lips have been grateful ever since. For those of you that don’t know, most chapsticks that aren’t natural contain petroleum. Although they feel great when you first put them on, you’ll need to reapply after just a couple of hours because the petroleum and other chemicals will actually dry out your lips. Plus, who wants to eat that stuff?
Chapsticks using all natural ingredients, on the other hand, last all day. You may have to reapply after eating, but that’s about it. I often don’t even have to do that since they are doing their job and moisturizing my lips – I usually only need a second coat during those long, dry, and cold winter days.
Speaking of which, we’ve had plenty of those lately that really let me put my samples of My Lip Stuff to the test! They sent me three yummy flavors out of the 100’s that they have to choose from. I received Apple Gingerbread, Maple Walnut Cheesecake, and Snowflakes. The smell was so intense you could actually smell it through the package! They all go on nice and smooth, and left my lips feeling soft even in this horribly cold weather we’ve been having lately.
My Lip Stuff is made from natural butters and oils so that you actually know what you’re putting on your lips. The ingredients are Sunflower Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Aloe Vera, and Essential and/or Flavor Oil. Those oils that they use are pretty amazing – the only downside is that they may make you hungry they smell so good! Additionally they are a skin-earth-animal friendly company. So when you buy from them you aren’t only supporting small business, you’re supporting a very green business as well.
My Lip Stuff also can do custom labels – I think these would be great for wedding favors. Who couldn’t use an extra tube of chapstick?
