I purchased this in Pink Grapefruit, and whilst it smelled lovely, its moisturising properties left a lot to be desired. I found myself constantly having to reapply due to its thin consistency. Unfortunately, this is not a product I would bother with again.
This is the perfect lip balm even if you're not a lip balm person like me.
It gives my lips a very nice gloss and isn't sticky at all. It goes on smooth and keeps my lips soft for hours, even if I wear it to bed.
Comes in a bajillion delicious scents. I own the Almond, Sun Protection, and Black Cherry Tinted balms. The Black Cherry tint looks really dark in the packaging but makes my lips look naturally flushed.
It's also inexpensive and 100% natural. Perfect!
Not tested on animals :)
I love, love, love these balms! I use the blue chamomile nighttime one, the black cherry, the chai, the grapefruit, and the chocolate...these have the best texture and I love the way they feel on my lips, I also love the different scents and the slight tint to the black cherry. I stock up on these from iherb.com. Use code GEL988 on your first order to get a $5 discount!
I picked this lip balm up at an American Apparel store in Montreal. Sadly, I haven't seen it in any local drug stores so I am not sure where to repurchase.
This balm is in a nice flattened twist tube, small enough not to bulge in my pocket and not in a dreaded pot!
I bought the almond 'flavour' which is a pale yellow. The almond smell is noticeable but not offensive and it goes on clear with a little bit of shine. No SPF.
It does a good job of moisturizing but it doesn't last as long as a petroleum based balm. But the trade off for it being raw and organic is definitely worth it. It is a product I can feel good about using. Two thumbs up.
I came across Hurraw lip balms on an organic blog. Its perfectly clean, organic, wildcrafted ingredients appealed to me and so did the reasonable prices (I think it was $3.99 a tube)? For that why would you want to buy some petroleum filled drugstore version?
The balms go on smoothly, smell delicious and last me at least a few weeks with daily use. My favorites are the Moon balm, Coconut and the Vanilla Bean. The SPF15 sunbalm was too dry for me, while the Black Cherry was too tinted.
I order a ton from iHerb at a time and am good for most of the year.
Love Hurraw balms - natural and tastes great. One gripe: one tube lasts only 1 month on daily use (3 - 4 swipes per day). I also use Elemental Herb's lip balm (same size), and that lasts much longer even with the same usage.
I like the sun balm - with the spf - all spf balm tastes has a spiced up / cinnamon-like taste, which is fine. The moon balm is nothing to write home about; I would same the extra cost and just get the vanilla or vanilla bean balm.
I'm amazed by the high ratings on this, but maybe it's because most people seem to be talking about a flavor other than chocolate. The chocolate is the one I tried, and it's HORRENDOUS. It's smells like burnt cocoa butter, and of course it's right under your nose. The texture is very nice, velvety smooth, but the smell is unbearable. I gave it to my husband who I expect will toss it in the trash, and rightly so.
I had such a hard time finding a lip balm for my ultra sensitive lips, which have reacted to vaseline, nivea, lucas' paw paw ointment..etc..but Hurraw made my lips so soft and tamed them down quite a bit! I bought the Black Cherry tinted balm, which I wish was a bit more tinted, but besides that it has been excellent so far and I'm pretty sure my lips won't react to it. So glad to find something that works! :)
Honestly, this is amazing. It's important to me that I buy cruelty-free beauty and hygiene products, so for the past couple years I've been using Alba Botanica and Yes to Carrots lip balms, and before that, I've tried every brand at the drugstore. I had no complaints with the Alba and Yes to Carrots balms, but my friend convinced me to try Hurraw. She made it sound like a godsend, so I ordered some from their site (Coconut, Grapefruit, & Black Cherry) and I absolutely agree. I woke up the morning after the first night I used it and my lips felt SO smooth. Their website describes it as "super smooth, not draggy, not sticky, not sweet, not too glossy, not too smelly, never grainy, long lasting." When I read that, I was thinking, "What...?" When I got it, it totally made sense. It really is perfect, and it really is all of those things. Whether you're into vegan products or not, if you like lip balm, this is for you. I feel like you really have to try it to understand -- it feels perfect on your lips. It has the best consistency for a lip balm, the packaging is sleek, and the company offers a lot of great and unique flavors. I never want to use anything else on my lips again and I think this is a perfect go-to for a gift idea! Try it and you won't go back! continued >>
I have been looking for a perfect lip balm for years facing failure with every new purchase. My lips are extremely sensitive so I thought I'd try something without any chemicals. I found Hurraw! on some blog and was intrigues by the ingredients and company philosophy.
I bought three flavors, coconut, black cherry and the moon balm.
All three of these balms are absolutely fabulous, they are very smooth and feel great when applied, The coconut smells delicious, the cherry smells even better and provides a natural red tint (I naturally have almost nude lips so this makes them look much healthier and kissable). At first I found something foul about the smell of the moon balm but I grew into it and love it now. In terms of moisturizing, the coconut and cherry are a bit oily and have to be reapplied quite often, which i dont mind because it feels and tastes so great, I could apply it every five minutes. The moon balm is definitely more moisturizing and lasts longer. I use it before I go to bed and throughout the day when my lips feel dry.
The reason I love these so much is that my lips aren't sensitive to them at all. Usually when I put anything on my lips, they start to feel weird and kinda tingly and then get chapped and bumpy, this includes lipstick, lip gloss and most lip balms.
I am very happy to have found this product and finally know what it's like to have soft smooth lips all day long. I highly recommend hurraw lip balm and will definitely buy it again in all the flavors.
