For the past while I have been trying out a new lip product. When it comes to the Autumn Winter months Lip care is very near the the top of my beauty regime! My lips become very dry and crack quite easily so I constantly have various products on the go.
Recently I have been trying out a lip balm from You Organic, an Irish organic cosmetic and skincare company. The Natural Cosmetic range was founded by Ursula Elmes - a Dublin based practicing Acupuncturist and Holistic Skin Therapist after she suffered a severe dermatological reaction to a well known brand. All of her products are gentle on skin, sourced from fair trade suppliers, contains no nasty chemicals and against animal testing plus she uses her own blend of essential oils and herbs. For sale on her website and selected stockists are body lotions, face cream, candles and of course the following lipbalm.
YOU ORGANIC ORANGE & MANDARIN LIP BALM
As it says on the tin, it has an Orange & Mandarin scent. I definitely get a hint of mint and lavender from it too which adds a bit of zing. It is quite different from any other balm I have tried because when it's on the lips it leaves them super glossy rather than balmy! It seems more like a lip oil so it's quite unique.
As you can see below, the ingredients are completely natural. At last and for once, I can understand ALL of the ingredients in it!! How often does that happen!!?
*Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao), *Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis), *Beeswax (Cera Alba)
ESSENTIAL OILS: *Mandarin (Citrus Reticulata), *Grapefruit (Citrus Paradisi), *Orange ( Citrus Sinensis), *Lime (Citrus Aurantifolia), *Lavender (Lavendula Augustifolia) *Spearmint (Mentha Spicata).
The above product was sent to me for free from the You Organic PR Team for reviewing purposes. All opinions above are completely my own, 100% honest thoughts on the products.
