I am fairly picky about lip balm- if it's not moisturizing enough or long lasting, it's a pass. I started using mainly natural beauty products and came across Badger lip balms at Sprouts market. The ingredients are all natural and organic, and you get a good amount at a reasonable price. I first bought the Creamy Cocoa scented one, and honestly, wasn't too crazy about it at first- it seemed overly waxy and hard to apply. The scent is barely there. But I gave it a chance and I'm so glad I did! The trick is to use it consistently a few times to allow the outer layer to soften. Once you get used to it, it's a great, effective lip balm and treatment- not too waxy, oily or ineffective- just the right amount of rich, emollient moisture. I use it at night as well, and wake up to very soft lips in the morning. I also have the Mocha scent, which faintly smells of shea butter and coffee--i'm not too crazy about the scent, but it's not overpowering so it'll do. I prefer Creamy Cocoa. If you're looking for a natural but effective lip balm, try Badger.
So glad I found this lipbalm around the time my lips got really parched and flakey. It's helped to heal my lips really fast. One application lasts for half a day, and even leaves my lips soft till the next day. I like that it's in a bigger tube and has more product in it. Regarding the smell, it smells like cocoa butter to me, nothing unpleasant as mentioned in the other reviews. Texture wise, it's a comforting creamy one that soothes my lips. It's colourless and not greasy so you could wear lipstick over it, if you wanted some colour while moisturising your lips. All over, it's a great product that works. A bonus that it's made of all natural, organic ingredients. Love this brand and this product!
Went on a buying-and-trying spree of lip balms after my beloved and HG Murad Soothing Skin And Lip Care was discontinued -- and has thankfully been brought back. Badger Lip Balm is just okay. A little too thick, dry-ish, and hard to spread across the lips for my taste. Won't repurchase. One lip balm that I bought on my buying spree and just love is Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Organic Lip Balm. Will write a separate review for it.
Likes - Very moisturizing! Turns lips soft and smooth quickly!
Dislikes - Smells bad. There is zero cocoa butter smell in it. It contains a salty smell, reminds me of dried dog food beef biscuits. I had high hopes with this product reading all the awesome comments. I love cocoa butter and am a fan of Palmer's. Sadly Palmer's lip balm's scent is a lil too light and non-lasting, so was on a hunt for an alternative. But this is nothing close to what I was expecting. I only used a swipe, and was so grossed out by the smell I wiped it off 5mins later with a tissue paper and dumped it into my bag. The stink was so lasting, I had to throw away the tissue paper after an hour, and my lips were still stinking after the wipe. I immediately wasted a USD8 and will never repurchase. :(
My favorite lip balm! It makes my lips so soft and smooth. It's a thicker consistency and super moisturizing. The smell and taste is weird though, like the reviewer below me said, sometimes it grosses me out and other times I don't mind it. I would for sure repurchase it in a different flavor whenever I run out. The tube is ginormous too so it's easy to find in my purse, yay!
This works pretty good. Keeps my chapped lips moist and heals them. I would only use this on its own. It has a thick consistency when you first apply it. Sometimes I like the smell of it and sometimes it smells a little weird. Its bigger than your regular chapstick so I think the price is okay for what you get. I bought this at Ulta and this will probably last me a long time
I love this. It's just like 100% cocoa butter stick but more moisturizing and much better packaging. I don't smell any plastic. It has a mild cocoa butter scent and taste. It softens and stays on my lips a long, long, time. It has become my favorite lip balm. Have repurchased and will continue to repurchase as long as it's available.
My HG lip balm. Can't live without this stuff. I keep an extra tube in my fridge at all times. It is the only lip product that I've found that doesn't contain dangerous ingredients, actually sticks around for a few hours after application, and leaves my lips noticeably hydrated. Also, I'm very sensitive to fragrance. This has a very subtle cocoa butter fragrance, but I find it nice, actually, though I admit it did take a few days to grow on me. I buy this at my local co-op for under $4. I am guessing Whole Foods carries it too. As a bonus, Badger is a family-owned eco-friendly company.
I liked this, and if you like cocoa butter for your lips I think this is a good choice. There's no added scent/flavor. I do however like their regular vanilla lip balm best, so I haven't bought this in a while. I think this was given to me as a gift in a set w/an orange one & a lime one; awesome gift by the way:) If I feel like cocoa butter again, I'll definately have to try their vanilla cocoa butter.
This is my favourite lip balm of all time, although I did not like it at first! The product is dry when left alone in the tube but warms up and applies like a dream once sweeping it across your lips. I don't mind the smell at all, all I can detect is a slight hint of cocoa butter. It is so incredibly moisturizing! Honestly after months of use I have realized that no other lip balm compares and I always reach for this when my lips are in a SERIOUS need of moisture. I also have a tin of tangerine breeze and have to admit badger makes my favourite lip products out there. All natural, great scents, great packaging, and so effective and moisturizing. I've tried YestoCarrots, Burts Bees, and the EOS lip sphere lip products and Badger is definitely the winner in the world of naturals (and in the world of lip products in general). They have many other scents too if the plain cocoa isn't your thing.
