Rejoice! This lip balm’s key ingredient is my all-time favourite ingredient: calendula. As someone that suffers from super dry lips (especially when it’s hayfever season), this lip balm is “the one” for me. What I love about Calendula is that it locks in moisture and protects against wet and dampness (so I can drink a bevvy and it won’t wash off). It’s so moisturising that I need only apply it every couple of hours. And I absolutely love that it comes in a recyclable tin!!
The metal tin is so easy to keep in handbag. The packaging is small and travellable, a must-have for a good lip balm like this. I appreciate that it’s an Australian product with organic ingredients, mainly filled with plant based ingredients.
This is the luxurious, deeply moisturising lip balm that you dream of when you have dry, winter weathered lips. With richly nourishing organic ingredients, my lips feel soft and hydrated. I love that this lip balm is unscented, it feels like it lets it’s healing attributes shine. Highly recommended for sensitive lips needing that extra bit of nurturing.
The scent is truly delicious. Delectably fragrant, which is perfect for a product that you apply to your lips. The cocoa butter-rich formula has a long-last softening effect and the compact size made it little enough to toss in a coin purse – not just a handbag. Encouraging conversion to entirely compostable packaging, and championing small scale manufacture is admirable. I think those things have great resonance right now.
I enjoyed the consistency of this lip balm, the scent of it and the ingredients were a bonus as well. I also used it on my cuticles and it worked brilliantly. I love a multi-use product. This brand seems very focused on the importance of community and building strong relationships with the people they source their ingredients from. That makes me feel confident that I’m getting quality ingredients in my products.
