**A giveaway will be coming soon for this product! Look out for the announcement!
As allergy season approaches again, I find my lips chapped as they always are this time of year. That's why I was so excited to see a package show up in the mail with three tubes of Eco-Lips. I really enjoyed browsing their catalog to choose the three I wanted. They had quite a selection, from those that are meant to heal your lips, to tinted lip balm and even "energy" lip balm with caffeine.
For me, I picked the Energy (what teacher is going to pass up caffeine? Really?), Medicinal (I love tea tree oil and was excited to see it in a lip balm), and the Eco-Tint. I also received the Eco Lips Gold with carabiner. I was really pleased with my choices when they arrived.
I loved the Energy the best, it actually made my lips "buzz" a little and tasted nice. It was soft and smoothed my lips without getting sticky.
The Eco Tint was nice, too. I chose the Rose Quartz tint and it gave my lips a soft, pink tint, and made them feel kissable, but not sticky.
The medicinal smelled of tea tree oil, but not too strongly (if you know tea tree oil, you know it can be overpowering, especially near your nose). It also was really good for my cracked lips and seemed to heal them quickly.
The Eco Lips Gold was great, too, and I loved the handy carabiner that you can attach to a purse or a backpack (Doesn't it always seem that lip balms get lost in the bottomless pit that is a mom's purse?).
All of the Eco Lips products were long-lasting. Hours later, I could still see the tint, or feel the effects of the lip balm. Best of all, none of the lip balms were sticky. I don't know about you, but I hate sticky lips!
Overall, I was really pleased with Eco Lips and it's great to know that they're organic and I can pronounce all of their ingredients! As their catalog said, the lips are one of our most adsorbent areas of our bodies, so you want to put healthy products on them. I also appreciated that their products are cruelty-free.
