I love beauty products, make-up and pretty much anything like that. I especially love natural, organic, eco-friendly and cruelty free items. So when I read about My Lip Stuff I knew I just had to try their product. So I e-mailed Brea, the owner and creator of My Lip Stuff, and she was nice enough to ship me out some products to try. She was so sweet, and offered to let me host a giveaway for some of her products as well.
I've honestly never seen such a selection of lip balms in my entire life. They have over 400 flavors! I was so excited to try the ones that Brea picked out for me. So when the little package arrived here at the house, I quickly opened it, read the labels and applied the Rainbow Sherbet flavored lip balm to my lips, after smelling it of course. I was pleasantly surprised that it did in fact smell exactly like Rainbow Sherbet! I quickly found out that it tasted amazing as well. I was really intrigued when I found out that Jennifer Garner uses it! My Lip Stuff has been featured in several different magazines, and is a friend of PETA business.
I was afraid that the lip balm was going to be that sticky, gross, thick gloss that feels weird and annoys me to no end. It's not like that at all though. It's buttery, goes on smooth and makes my lips feel so soft! I'm a lip balm junkie, and I use it at least six times a day, that's the low end of average for me. The sticky stuff really annoys me though, and I can not tell you how many times I have bought lip balm and it has turned out to actually be sticky, thick, ill smelling lip gloss that gets all over everything. I have been using My Lip Stuff for the past week and have put all my other tubes, containers and tiny little jars away. It truly is an amazing product. If you're like me and hate that sticky, gross lip gunk that they have the nerve to market as lip balm then this is the product for you, for sure. Even if you're just looking for an organic lip balm or if you are interested in using cruelty free beauty products, then I suggest this lip balm to you!
Brea is a person with a wonderful vision, and she runs a company dedicated to leaving the smallest carbon footprint possible, and I really respect that! I live by the saying "reuse, reduce and recycle" so it makes sense that I would support a company like My Lip Stuff. Here is an excerpt from her website that I found particularly inspiring:
My Lip Stuff's ultimate mission is to end the suffering of people with chapped lips all across the land. In the process, we strive to end animal testing and save the environment with chemical-free natural products!
My Lip Stuff's products are NEVER tested on animals & contain natural (from the earth) ingredients that are skin loving. Our products do NOT contain any harsh ingredients- and NEVER contain petroleum or mineral oil! We also do what we can by using recycled (and recyclable) materials whenever possible, and even using "green power" (power from renewable resources such as wind, water, or landfill gases).
In the end, We strive to create a natural product made from only the highest quality ingredients, with the least amount of impact on the environment and its inhabitants, for the lowest possible price.
They will also customize your labels for your business, baby shower, wedding, bridal shower and bridesmaid luncheon, bachelorette party, birthday party, holidays and pretty much anything else you could possibly want a personalized lip gloss label for!
