Lip Melts: Buttery, Organic Goodness For Your Kisser!

LipMelts

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.

The ingredients: butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter) fruit, theobroma cacao (Cocoa) seed butter, helianthus annuus (Sunflower) seed oil, cucurbita pepo (Pumpkin) seed oil, olea europaea (Olive) Oil, rosa canina (Rosehip) fruit oil, ricinus communis (Castor) seed oil , oenothera biennis (Evening Primrose) oil, euphorbia cerifera (Candelilla) wax, tocopherol (natural Vitamin E), essential oils.

      Funny enough, I am looking for a very moisturizing lip balm. My basic test is simple. I put some on before I go to bed, if I wake up and my lips are still moisturized then it is a winner. You would think that this would be easy but I am having a hard time. I thought the EOS lip balm would have been a winner but sadly not. I have found the tendertones by MAC pretty good but I dislike dipping my finger continually in products. Do you have any recommendations?

        Eleanor,
        I feel ya. I like Kiehl’s Lip Balm and The Lip Slip by Sara Happ (which is quite expensive). Kiehl’s is not as hard on the wallet, and it’s a very good lip balm. Kiehl’s Lip Balm comes in a tube and a pot. I prefer a pot.
