Carroty Goodness

Man, seems like carrots are in everything these days.  Really, I’m not a fan of carrots, at least not cooked.  I can’t stand cooked carrots.  But carrot lip balm on the other hand… that’s a carrot I can get behind!  I just got a tin of Nature’s Gate Organics Carrot Smoothie lip balm.  Now, try as I might, I can’t find it on their website, which leads me to believe it might be discontinued.  Which is a real shame, because it’s a good balm!  Goes on smooth, great scent and flavor (totally not what you’d expect from “carrot smoothie” but it’s really good!).  It comes in one of those lip balm tins that you slide the top off.  Reminds me of lip balm from my childhood – those tins were always so fun to slide open and closed, with the satisfying click when you close it. 🙂  As an adult, it’s not my favorite method of lip balm storage – I much prefer a tube, especially for my purse – finger applied lip balm is not the best when you’re running around and can’t always wash your hands when you need a little ‘balm.  Still, it’s a good at-home balm.

I found it at my local natural foods store, for $3.99.  Hopefully you’ll be able to find it somewhere too!  If you find it, let me know!

Sorry, no.

Just in case you wanted to try to get a leg up on your exams, sorry, lip balm’s not going to help you get a perfect score.  But you will have nice soft lips while you take the test.

Buzz Buzz!

Every fall, we go to the Maryland Renaissance Festival.  Loads of fun for the whole family, and more food on a stick than you’d ever imagine.  (Who knew you could put mac and cheese on a stick?)  But while we’re there, I always have to make a trip over to the booth of The Bee Folks.  We all sample tons of kinds of honey, yum, but I also have to pick up their lip balm (shocking, I know)!  I’m sure at some point I’ve tried all the flavors, but I keep coming back to their Black Cherry.  It’s like a can of Dr Brown’s soda in a balm.  Love it!  Goes on smooth, smells great.  No taste, but it’s still worth it.

Unfortunately, if you don’t live near Maryland, it’s going to be hard for you to get this balm.  They do sell it on their website though, so you can pick it up, and some of their fabulous honey (my kids’ favorite is the butterbean) while you’re at it.  The lip balms are $4 each.

It’s Just Crazy

I was wandering through one of our local natural food stores today when I happened upon Crazy Rumors lip balm.  Yeah, like I’m going to walk past that without looking!  I was amazed by the variety of flavors!  Our store had 16 different flavors, and it was a hard choice.  I ended up getting the Fresh Squeezed Limeade.  And I’m so glad I did!

First, the smell is fantastic!  So fresh, almost smells like cutting into a lime.  Or a margarita!  I could walk around smelling it all day.  It’s got just a hint of taste, which you know I love.  Goes on smooth, and the texture is great.  Very long lasting moisture, too.  This balm is definitely a winner.  In addition, it’s also cruelty free and vegan.  And all natural!

Take a minute and head to the Crazy Rumors website.  Check out the flavors!  There are several I’m going to have to try next time.  I think the Brew Apple Spice and A La Mode Mint Chocolate are tops on my list, but it’s so hard to narrow it down!  Whatever your preferences, you can be sure there’s a flavor that’ll suit you.

The balms retail for $4 each.  The store locator page of their site doesn’t list the retailers yet, but it does say they’re working on it.  And you can email them to find one near you.  But check out your local health/natural foods store and see if they’ve got it there.  Well worth a trip!

Mission Skincare Update

I went to CVS this past week, and hit the motherload of mission skincare lip balm. I’m now the proud owner of the Blueberry Pomegranate Mega Balm and the Pink Lemonade, Pomegranate and Organic Strawberry regular sized balms. All are fantastic, though I think the Acai Lemonade is still my favorite.

If you want to get some of your own, CVS has them Buy 1 get 1 50% off now. I found them on a red display on the side of an end cap.
