'get lippy' lip balm
Please note : three different suppliers have all sent me tins that are just a mm smaller (but deeper) so now the back labels have become little tied on notecards as per Health Canada regulations. This is the packaging ... for now.
This is my one desert island product. I had crazy chapped lips and a red ring around my mouth from constant nervous licking as a kid. Trying to make it through an entire Saturday-morning cartoon without licking my lips is ingrained in my memory.
Chapstick to Vaseline to Blistex .. I've used them all! I started researching lip balm ingredients and formulations many years ago after burning through several Burt's Bees tubes per month. I've made more versions of lip balm than probably any other product and if I'm leaving the house for more than 15 minutes, there's always oner in my pocket. That said, this formulation is loaded with ultra-nourishing and slow-absorbing excellent raw materials to soothe and protect without constant reapplying. Everything from Renee and Joelle's amazing Westlock County beeswax to raw, handcrafted shea from a village in Northern Ghana is thoughtfully chosen. Thick, rich occlusive olive, jojoba and castor oils. Organic calendula for all it's wonderful skin-healing properties.
And just a kiss of peppermint essential oil.
** Comes in a hefty 15ml reusable tin equivalent to 3 standard lip balm tubes.
