My review is for the Vanilla Bean scent, as it is the only one I have so far (but I'm sure more will follow!)

My HG lip balm for years has been Burt's Bees. I have used many jars of it. But I was in the market for something different. While I still love Burt's Bees, I've grown tired of it. I stumbled upon Hurraw! and I'm very glad I did.

At first, I was not too impressed. Sure, it smelled like heaven (like the vanilla flavour they put in a Starbucks drink!) but I didn't feel like it performed any better than my Burt's Bees, so it kind of collected dust for a while. Until I noticed that I was gravitating more and more towards it in the months to come. At first, I blamed the scent, as it is delicious. But the texture is so nice and it feels like butter on the lips, but not too greasy. It made my lips nice and soft. I don't even touch my Burt's Bees one, to be honest.

The tube is really nice! It doesn't necessarily work better than a classic round tube, but the packaging is high quality and feels really nice in the hands (if that makes sense).

Yes, this is definitely a favourite. I love the philosophy: it is all vegan, organic and fair trade (as far as I know) and I think that is very important. I am not specifically vegan, but the less ingedients derived from animals, the better.

I love the vanilla scent, but I'm very curious to try the other ones. I can see myself collecting the rest of the flavours! Gotta catch 'em all!

Definitely recommend this product! It is not too expensive, does the job really well, has high quality, fantastic ingredients and a great philosophy. I don't know what else I could ask for. Hurray for Hurraw!

Loving these! I have the black cherry and cinnamon. Both definitely have that initial scent payoff that's deliciously bold they pick up your mood right then and there. Both have the flavour listed, although the cinnamon is a bit more intense. And both have that sheer colour with slight sheen built into satisfying moisture. I could only imagine the rest of the colours follow suit!

The features in packaging that really impress me are the elliptical shape for dispensing and the dial turn up as opposed to twist up. It's these little things that make presicion and class unto a product.

One of my favourite looks is a tinted lip balm over a stain and these are so very perfect for that. It is definitely a balm with tint, not balm with lip colour, if that makes any sense. The colours swatch true to the product, which is a very good thing. And if you have found this product, you already know it is a natural item, bravo.

I was intrigued by the product after hearing it was both natural, organic, vegan, raw and cruelty free. Five great qualities, and I want to add "effective" to the bunch. In two days my lips went from typically winter chapped to perfectly smooth and moisturized. I bought the chai spice one because I'm craving a chai latte at all times, and it tastes and smells absolutely amazing. I can't wait to try more scents. The only con is that very few stores in Sweden carry Hurraw, so they're a bit pricey in the few stores where you can get them. I'd much rather put my money towards a few hurraw balms than I would towards for example Eos balms (which is what I've gone for in the past) though. Not to mention all the cheap chemical-y ones that do nothing for your lips in the long run. HG lip product for sure!

I have one of their lip balms with SPF, Sun Lip Balm SPF 15. This is light years ahead of other lip balms in terms of ingredients, texture, and sun protection. First off, unlike the Yes to Carrots SPF 15 lip balm, this is not full of nasty white gunk that makes your lips look like a science project. This goes on clear, hydrates well, and actually protects my lips. I prefer this shape of lip balm to the traditional cylinder tubes as well. This comes in about a million other flavors that I cannot wait to try. Great buy!

BLOODY BRILLIANT! *Ron Weasley voice*

Perioral dermatitis sufferer here. Sensitive lips are an understatement. I'm allergic to beeswax also.
Having been a lip balm fanatic all these years.. I have developed contact dermatitis to beeswax. Contact dermatitis happens when you are exposed to a certain ingredient so often that you become sensitive to it. It can happen with petroleum, anything! This condition saw me months at a time on antibiotics, antifungals, tubes and tubes of creams. Not using any type of make up and countless visits to doctors and dermatologists.

Nivea Lip Butter and this baby right here are the ONLY things that work. I'm leaning more towards Hurraw! because it's vegan and organic. This will be all I will be buying for the rest of my life. I'll use what I have left of Nivea but won't repurchase.

$7.50 in Australia but you're able to purchase it for $4 on iherb. I will happily buy off their website, iherb is fantastic!

As this lipbalm is composed of natural oils compressed together, it is emollient once on the lips. The texture is thin and not waxy like those nasty chemical filled stuff. Your lips will need reapplying if they're severely chapped but in the long run, this will not dry your lips out. Unlike those waxy balms that seal your lips with a coating... And don't do much! I would describe the texture as... Like having Vaseline on your lips but lighter.

The only con is that because it is oils, essentially, you will fly through the product! I don't mind. It is better than having chapped and irritated lips down the track from using chemical filled lip products. Shine is also a factor. The ingredients listed are edible.. And imagine how much lipstick or lipbalm you unknowingly ingest. All those nasty chemicals? Thank goodness this is chemical free.

I'm glad I have learnt a great lesson in life. Love and care for you body and it will thank you in return.

These are great. They go on smoothly and have great flavors/scents! I got the chocolate and black cherry. The packaging is cute and I like the unique shape- it doesn't roll like usual round ones do. You only need a tiny bit for moisture/shine, and with the tinted black cherry, for color. When I opened them for the first time, I didn't notice the scent being strong, but it is much stronger when applied (it was for me anyway). I would definitely recommend! And of course, one of the best aspects is that they're organic, raw and vegan! (And homemade, I think!) The name really suits them. :)

Love these! They are the ONLY balms I use now. Love both the Black Cherry and the Cinnamon for the sheer bit of color. I've used up one of each scent. Also love the Sun and Moon balm. They are smooth on the lips and hydrating. Customer service is superb! Can't wait to try them all!!

These are my favourite lip balms! Prior to Hurraw, I don't think I ever finished a lip balm in my life. Maybe one or two here and there... Hurraw though? I've been using the balms for about 2 years now and I've lost count of how many I've finished. 6 months ago I found out I have an allergy to beeswax. It took about a month to figure out it was beeswax (propolis) that was causing my lips to swell up, blister and chap... But once I did I was so thankful I already had a vegan lip product in my life. Every other lip balm and lip product with beeswax high on the ingredient list had to get tossed.
My lips never get chapped, the scents are amazing, and the product line overall is excellent. SPF Sun Balm? Perfect! Moon Balm for night? Perfect! Every other balm? Perfect! I can't pick a favourite scent, but my usual picks are: Grapefruit, Almond, Orange, Licorice and Cherry (tinted).

I love these lip balms! I wish they sold a larger variety of flavors (flavors? scents? whatever!) at the store near me, because I would honestly never order a lip balm like this online. I have a whole bunch that I use on a regular basis. I love the Sun Balm (SPF 15) especially in the summer, because I'm a lifeguard. I use the Moon Balm at night, my lips get really chapped as I sleep. During the day I prefer either the Vanilla Bean Balm on days when I'm going simple with my makeup or the Black Cherry Balm, if I want a little more color in my lips.

I also really like that they're vegan. The formula is smooth and creamy, and all of the ingredients are natural. No petroleum! The tube is also really cute, I like that it's an oval, it sits better in pockets than a round tube!
Absolutely love them, will continue purchasing as long as they sell them!

I have Vanilla Bean, Black Cherry, and Chai Spice. They are all YUMMERS x 10000, especially Chai Spice. Affordable, tons of excellent, original flavors along with a bunch of people-pleasers. Good brand, good ingredients. The oval tube is not my favorite, as it conforms to the shape of my lips in an annoying way, creating a weird dip with raised edges (hard to explain lol). These are good for me in the warmer months, as they have a light, slick texture. However, I don't find them that moisturizing and the balm evaporates quickly from my lips, so I never reach for them :( ...overall a 3.5 and I think if you don't have chronically dry lips like me, you will love them.
