This stuff is amazing! It is so moisturizing that within three days of use, my chapped lips were gone and replaced with baby soft lips. As a bonus, I know every ingredient in there. There aren't any harsh chemicals. Take a look at the Maybelline New York Baby Lips ingredients:

Yup. There are only 5 ingredients in this lip balm: Shea butter, beeswax, cocoa butter, palm kernel oil, and virgin coconut oil.

I like this lip balm as it is all natural, although I prefer the Badger lip balms more so than these. This company is doing a great job though by delivering a great product line that is all natural. These moisturize the lips very well and smell nice too.

YUM, the flavor of this lip balm is buttery, chocolatey, and sweet... and the texture is silky but sturdy. It can harden into crystals in colder weather, but it still goes on nicely once it gets warmed by my lips. Definitely my go-to everyday lip balm, along with Nanak's Lip Smoothee (which is a little more oily/melty/shiny). I love supporting this company, both for their politics and because they are from near my hometown (Olympia, WA)!

I have chronic dry lips. They're always chapped. Most lip products seem to make this worse. I do ok with Aquaphor, but I wanted something a little more natural and I wanted something in a more convenient package. This stuff works like a dream. My lips are so soft. Plus they seem like a decent company to give my money to. I like that there's a short list of good ingredients with no irritants.

Ingredients: Certified Fair Trade Shea Butter, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Palm Kernel Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil.
