I placed an order with Hurraw! Balm earlier this week, and received my order yesterday (super quick shipping!). I heard about these lip balms through a contest Elle and Blair were having, and since I suck at winning anything (but am a lip-balm junkie) I just decided to go ahead and purchase some myself. The hardest part was figuring out which flavors to get! There is a 3 balm minimum purchase on their website, so I ended up going with the Green Tea, Coconut, and Moon Balm (which is a night treatment balm).
The balms themselves are in an oval-shaped container, which is supposed to be so that it will fit in your pocket easily without falling out. The container is interesting and unique, but I find it to be a little weird when applying it because it is not the usual round shape (Being a girl, I also carry a purse 99% of the time, so there’s no reason for me to put it in my pocket haha). The balm itself is amazing! Its super creamy and smooth and I don’t feel like I’m tugging it across my lips to get the product out like I do with some balms. It also stays on my lips a very long time afterwards. The scent for both of the regular balms I got were really nice…I’m a big coconut fan (so I obviously loved that one), and I got the green tea because it sounded like it would be a nice and refreshing scent, which it was! I’ve actually decided it will become my mainstay lip balm at my desk at work…which is quite an honor. haha.
The scent for the Moon Balm is nice as well (described as “Vanilla and Peru Balsam”), but a little odd…I can’t quite put my finger on what I don’t like about it. Its definitely not a bad scent though, just not one I would immediately go for. I usually don’t go for vanilla type scents, so it could be that. The balm itself, however, is wonderful. Its a little bit thicker than the regular balm. I put it on before bed and I could still feel it on my lips the next morning! The best part about Hurraw! Balms are that they are completely organic, certified vegan and fair trade. They also come packaged in a little reusable tea bag! You really can’t go wrong with these balms, so if you are a lip balm junkie like myself (or even if you’re not), you should try these balms out! I will definitely be picking up more in the future…really want to try their tinted balm as well.
