Eco Lips Review & Giveaway

Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Cool Autumn weather is nice, isn't it? Leaves are starting to change in the north. Temperatures are a bit chilly. You can practically smell that Pumpkin Spice Latte down the street. But what many people don't realize is that cool (or cold for our friends WAY up north) temperatures can bring chapped lips.  The cool, dry air and windy conditions evaporates the moisture we have on our lips.

But Eco Lips is helping those with chapped lips bring that moisture back with natural and organic lip balm! Its started in the early 1990s, when Andrea Danielson began brewing small batches of natural lip balm in her kitchen for her friends and famly. Once word spread about the lip balms, Eco Lips, they became the best place to get natural and organic lip balm!

They offer a WIDE variety of lips balms to choose from! Want a little shimmer but want to keep those lips moistened? Try out their Eco Tints Tinted Lip Care! If you want a little flavor, check out the Pure & Simple Lip Care! They have a few flavors: Coconut, Tasty Grabe, and Kiwi-Strawberry!
Operation Smile Cause Balm

Do your part by snagging one of their Cause Balms! For every lip balm sold through their Cause Balm Program, Eco Lips will donate $1 to the Cause Balm you buy. They have quite a few to choose from, including Operation Smile, Immedite Relief, YogaGivesBack.org, Motivating Miles, Vitamin Angels, iFred, World Wide Village, Shakti Rising, Cheerful Givers, and Waypoint. They also have flavors!

For lip balms from brands like Dagoba, and Honest Kids, check out their Co-branded Lip Care. All of the balms are USDA-certified organic and 100% edible with yummy flavors!

For the ultimate lip moisture, you have to try out their Eco Lips Gold! Not only is it USDA-certified organic, it is also gluten free and high in vitamin E. It is unflavored.

BUY
You can purchase Eco Lip balms ranging from $2.49 and up.

WHAT I THOUGHT:

I was able to try the Dagoba Lavender, Eco Tints Coralyte, and Kiwi-Strawberry Lip Balms.

The Dagoba Lavender smelled pretty good. Kind of like chocolate and lavender mixed together. You could taste a little of the lavender and blueberry with just a tiny hint of cocoa. It wasn't enough to make me want to keep reapplying it just to taste it but it definitely worked on getting the moisture back to my lips.

The Kiwi-Strawberry tasted delicious! I could taste a a little of the sourness from the kiwi (which I absolutely love!) and just a little of the strawberry. It now sits in my purse so that when I'm out and want a taste while moisturizing my lips, I can just take it out. It is definitely my favorite!

I also got to try the Eco Lips Gold lip balm. I tend to have terribly chapped lips when the weather changes drastically and I had chapped lips when it arrived so I was glad to try it out first. It feels a little thick, but for a reason- it is meant to moisturize the lips. After a while, my lips were returning back to their normal state. I didn't have to reapply it a million times to get the feeling that it was healing. It seemed to work after a few days so I am glad to have this in my chapped lips arsenal!
