Did You Know...
...the flavor you "taste" in your lip balm is really a sweetener named stevia? Our brains work in a way so that what we smell and what we taste intermingle. So if you smell the cherry scent on your lips and taste the sweetener, your brain will tell you that this is cherry flavored lip balm. If you removed the fragrance from each lip balm and just wore it with the sweetener inside, they would all taste the same.
So this weeks review and giveaway is just...great fun! I found a lip balm that is agreeable to all mankind (hopefully). This week I used Lip Balm All Natural Enriched with Vitamin E and it's super good. That's really it's name.
Review: I really liked this lip balm. I have been using Burt's Bees and I was looking for a backup just in case in the event of a lunar eclipse. This balm fit the bill. I put it on about a few hours ago and it's still workin' it's stuff. My lips got tingly and I figured that mmm....it must be working and I guess it was. I read that Menthol in lip balms is counter productive due to the fact that menthol has a drying effect because it is a form of alcohol and it CAN cause skin irritation. This contains peppermint and I was worried that it might do the same thing but no. Just good 'ol fashioned lip love. My lips are not dry whatsoever, they might even be described as supple. Now that's a good lip day! Whoa-pah! The ingredients are all natural as well. Let's visit this little aspect real quick.
Ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, sunflower oil, vitus vinifera (which translates into grape vine), grapeseed oil, peppermint oil, lanolin (it softens and protects) and vitamin E.
ONTO THE MAIN EVENT! GATHER ROUND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN...NO PICTURES PLEASE, IT'S SHY....
The price......a whopping break the bank amount of $1.00! Yep. Heard it here first. A buck. You'll never guess where I found it either. Dollar Tree! Yep. The dollar store is carrying some serious stash of natural lip balm.
I do not have a picture of the product unfortunately. On the back of the packaging, it says it distributed by Greenbrier International, Inc. out of Chesapeake, VA. No website or anything. It's just called 100% Natural Lip Balm. I found it near the personal cosmetic items (i.e. nail polish, nail clippers, hair ties) It's just simply simplistic and cute encased in a plastic covering and attached to a light green and light yellow cardboard type pack. No frills really - but ALL THE THRILLS!!!!
I love this product and to show how much I love it I am going to share it with others and make them believers too! Spread the word, Lynn loves this lip balm so much that she purchased 3 extra just for this weeks giveaways! Yep, you read right...3 wonderful people will be getting these shipped their way.

Music: Cake "The Distance". Don't ask me what the first "official video" is even trying to convey because the concept is lost on me. Avoid watching the last one though, why everyone thinks anime characters must be turned into music videos is beyond me. I also have no control over which videos they put up for that particular song. Sorry in advance. All I can do is warn you about anything non-Kosher.
