All ladies love to stock their bags with lip balms before heading out and I’m sure most of you have more than one lip balm in your collection. Lip balms are sort of like a one-size-fit-all product that are great for moisturizing your lips to keep them from chapping. And lip balms like these from Crazy Rumor made from natural ingredients with delish flavors – they definitely make perfect handbag stuffers!
I have a case of occasional dry lips, and have never been able to ﬁnd a lip balm that is not only organic and safe, but also effective in moisturizing. I used to rely on vaseline based lip balms and had no idea they were further drying my lips and making me reliant on their products. And when I found out, I tried organic brands, but they often left a powdery texture on my lips after a while, and still, I see ﬂakes of skin chapped from my lips. So I sort of admitted defeat and settled for drinking lots of water to hydrate them from inside out instead. And then…Estelle & Thild lip balm came along!
I was both excited and skeptical when I learnt of Miracle Lips from Holocuren. Going by the ingredient list and product description, it sounds like a wonder product but yet I couldn’t help but squint at the word “miracle” used in the name. Miracle Lips is described as a 2-in-1 medicinal lip salve that may be used daily to enhance lip health; to heal and prevent cold sores, and to treat chapped lips. It contains a combination of highly active natural and organic phytochemical ingredients that make a difference in just one application because it is able to penetrate at a deep cellular level, giving long term benefits. So the question is, does it really deliver its promise?
I don’t play any musical instruments and I know nothing about them, much less the connection between them and a lip balm! So it was interesting for me to find out that ChopSaver was invented by a professional trumpet player, as an all natural, herbal lip care product for people who play a wind instrument because of all the chapping, swelling and soreness they experience. Interesting story isn’t it? And certainly makes the ChopSaver lip balm sound more premium to me.
While I love my own DIY deodorant formulation, but I figured out that it might not be a good idea to load my body with too much essential oils since I use it on a daily basis. So when I saw this Dr Organic Pomegranate Deodorant in Jay Gee Health located at #B1-61 City Link Mall, I gave it a go. They also carry lavender, tea tree, manuka honey and aloe vera, but the store assistant recommended me the pomegranate one – that was the best of the lot according to her.
