Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Navitas Naturals - Cacao Power

This is a lip balm with mostly organic ingredients which I got from iHerb. Ingredients: org. sunflower oil,org. beeswax, org. raw cacao butter, org. jojoba oil, org. chocolate flavor, vitamin E, rosemary extract, org. calendula. The scent is a bit more like mocha than chocolate, still very good. What I love about it is how smooth it makes my lips feel and how long it lasts. Very healing for chapped lips.

I got this in the apple pear flavor. Strong scent, but not much flavor. Ingredients: shea butter, jojoba oil, beeswax, kukui oil, mango butter, pomegranate sterols, Lipocire (palm kernel oil), Compritol (natural thickener), vitamin E, natural flavor. This is kind of a softer balm and sometimes crumbles at the edges. Doesn't last that long.

I got this in the tangerine flavor. It has all organic ingredients except for the last ingredient, tocopherol (vitamin E). Rest of ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, hemp oiltangerine oil and rosa mosqueta oil. Goes on smooth with a nice tangerine scent, but doesn't last on my lips long.
I chose this variety (from iherb) because it specified that the shea butter was raw and the scent sounded good. The shea butter seemed harder than other raw shea butters I've used and the scent seemed off to me. I ended up using it for my feet. Will try the lemongrass and tea tree variety next, hoping for a better scent and texture.

I think the ingredients must have changed on this recently, on my package, the first 7 ingredients are: water, macadamia seed oil, corn starch, hydroxyethel urea,emulsifying wax nestearic acid, cetyl alcohol, shea butter. It also has rosemary,sage, cucumber, commiphora myrrha resin, treemoss, and 3 ceramides. No parabens listed, but it does have disodium edta and sodium benzoate. Nice cream, love the scent, sometimes on sale ( got 3.5 oz. for $7). Less likely to repurchase since C & E has closed the AZ stores.
I have this in the blush color, and it has failed me in many ways: the tube broke when I dropped it, the bottom part cracked and would not swivel until a screw was drilled in the side. I find it too sheer. It does not moisturize my lips or make them less chapped. It is highly fragranced and tastes chemically. It is too expensive.
I used natural light blonde, 8N. The color came out well, but the product smells awful, and left my hair tangled even after shampooing and conditioning as instructed.
This is from C & E's limited edition holiday collection. The scent is accurately described as a rich blend of vanilla, sweet almond and musky woods. It's really good and is now on sale for $3. The pump dispenser is pretty, too. Other scents are pomegranate and windsor woods. Also comes in triple-milled bath bars.
I received a gift bottle of this from C & E's FB page when it was launched. The fragrance is very strong and long lasting. I like the scent, so that is good. It has rose hip and evening primrose oils, and moisturizing shea butter and coconut oil, and is free of parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol and mineral oil.

Didn't do much for my fine hair, and I didn't care for the strong herbal tea scent, but my husband liked it for his coarse hair.

No scent/ flavor and uses organic ingredients. Does get a slightly gritty texture after a while, but still feels creamy on lips. I like the big caps on these as they are easy to remove.
Like the light apricot scent. Do not like the thin, runny consistency. Neutral in moisturizing.

Works great for moisturizing my heels. Better than shea butter, but also more expensive.

The fragrance in mine is so faint, it's hardly worth it. I don't care for the hanger on the package, but I do like that it is only 5 oz. so it gets used quickly.

Lightly scented shower gel does the job. Large 30 oz. container is a bit much. Pump is nice, but hard to get the last of the product.
