Organic Lip Butter
I’m a collector of lip balms/butters. I own a gazillion tubes and pots. I’ve tried them all. Yes, I’ve tried your favorite too. Most are nothing special. A few need to be pulled from the store shelves, and a few are noteworthy. You’d think it would be pretty easy to create a stellar lip lubricant – there’s so many butters, oils and waxes to choose from. Yet, the average lip balm is nothing more than souped-up Vaseline™. I got a little giddy when I stumbled upon Lisa’s Lip Melts Organic Whipped Lip Butter Etsy store. My eyes quickly found the Blood Orange and Vanilla lip butters, and after reading the descriptions I decided to pull the trigger and find out if these lip delights are truly hype-worthy. Lisa’s order turnover time is about two (2) weeks, so I tried not to get too anxious. I waited patiently for my order to arrive.
Okay, here’s the deal:
These lip butters should work fine for those who don’t need a heavy duty lip lubricant. I kept the Vanilla and gave the Blood Orange to a friend. I had to reapply several times during the day, and it didn’t give me that “smooth” feeling of waxier lip balms. If you need a bit of slip, before applying your lipstick, or if you’re in search of a light lip conditioning product, Lip Melts would probably be a good choice. However, my lips need a heavier, waxier product for the winter season.
