I am so excited to share this product with you, as in my opionion it is by far the best natural lip balm out on the market today!!! It is called Manuka Kiss and it comes from the Wedderspoon Company who focuses on high quality natural products and the environment. The products they specialize in are all honey and beeswax based.
The lip balm is absolutely amazing, I have tried both the Burt’s Bees lip balms and Alba lip balms and both companies’ products do not come close to this one in terms of being a superior natural product, quality and price. It has no preservatives or perfumes added to it – all natural ingredients! And that is exactly what you want when looking for something to put on your lips, since half of it you will end up ingesting directly into your system.
Now for those of you who do not know their different honey varieties like me, Manuka is a special type of high quality honey with antibacterial properties. It comes from bees that feed on the flowers of the Tea Tree, hence the antibacterial properties.
The lip balm is filled with great natural ingredients of which almost all are organic, and works extremely well as a lip moisturizer. It does not leave lips looking shiny and hence is great for men too. It has a fantastic texture that glides on easily without caking all over your lips. Now if that was not good enough, it smells identically like the “After Eight” mint chocolates. Not too strong, but just enough that every time I bring it close to my lips I am tempted to take a bite :)
- Manuka Beeswax (organic)
- Shea Butter (organic)
- Olive Oil
- Cocoa Butter (organic)
- Manuka Honey (organic)
- Peppermint Essential Oil
The lip balm comes in a typical lip balm tube that has a cap and adjustable roll bar at the bottom to adjust desired height of product at a time. Once finished, I would imagine you could easily recycle it, assuming there was no more product left inside.
