Take our quiz to find the best natural lip balm for you!Posted on June 29, 2018 Written by: 100% PURE®
How many natural lip balms do you own? Some might call our lip balm collection excessive, but we NEED a lip balm for the car to hydrate on all those sunny weekend road trips. Oh, and a purse balm for everyday. But also one by the bed, to ensure silky lips when you wake up. And then obviously, we need one for our desk at work, just in case – so basically, just the essentials. When you have the best natural lip balm to treat your lips with TLC, you might become just as obsessed as us.
At this point we all know that natural lip balms are a must. The skin on our lips is way different from the skin on any other part of our body. It sheds differently and needs a little extra care to stay hydrated. On top of that, just like our hands, we’re using our lips all the time. Every time we, eat, smile, or give our honey a smooch, we’re putting pressure on our lips, drying them out, causing wrinkles, and exposing our lips to aging from UV rays.
Let’s be real, our lips don’t get a lot of protection when it comes to environmental exposure. When was the last time you applied sunscreen or an SPF balm to your lips? It might sound odd to put something as strong as sunscreen on the lips, yet sunscreen is even more useful for the lips because of lip texture and behavior. As we mentioned before, the skin on our lips is different from anywhere else on our bodies; it’s much thinner. The added protection from SPF can really help shield lips from extreme light and heat, fierce howling winds, and icy cold temperatures. The SPF in our lip balm also helps protect and retain the natural collagen in the lips for a little more pucker and a little less pout. We believe in protecting our smoochers using organic ingredients, natural oils, and smoothing, silky butters that make our lips feel loved.

Time to Check Your Results!
Which natural lip balm is right for you?
You want your lips to look and feel great, with a bit of shine and tint as well as all the natural ingredients to hydrate. Check out our Cherry Lip Balm. Packaged in a sleek lip balm tube, our formula features organic sunflower seed oil which helps to fight wrinkles and retain moisture. It also contains vitamin E and organic coconut oil to help protect lips from sun damage. If you’re feeling frisky, swipe our Strawberry Fruit Pigmented Lip Butter over the top. This natural lip balm is 100% vegan and includes avocado, shea, and rosehip oils. It’s colored by natural pigments from cranberry, carrot, strawberry, and peach.
Adulting is complicated, but lip balm doesn’t have to be. Try our Sweet Mint or Organic Mint lip balms for the perfect pucker. Our Sweet Mint Lip Balm contains SPF 15 so you can hit the beach guilt-free (at least when it comes to your lips). With a light vanilla-mint flavor as well as coconut, avocado, and peppermint essential oil, this balm protects and nourishes lips. If you’re in the mood to go fully organic, the 100% PURE Organic Mint Lip Balm uses beeswax to seal in moisture and rosemary, eucalyptus, and mint to cool and soothe.
You’re the kind of girl that likes form and function. We recommend our 2-in-1 Fruit Pigmented Lip and Cheek Tint. This natural lip balm can be used on lips or cheeks, and comes in 6 different shades and contains sweet fruits like blackberry, cherry, and pomegranate. Simply swipe product onto your fingertips and pat onto to cheeks for a subtle flush. For a glowy flush, apply to a wet sponge and press into the skin, then finish up with a swipe over the lips. You can layer for more color intensity. This product saves time in the morning, space in our makeup bags, and makes our entire makeup look smooth and flawless.
Treat the lips with something wholesome and pure. Our Lysine + Herbs Lip Balm actually contains ingredients which help treat inflammation and cold sores. Get ready to pucker up again just days after use, because the lysine in this formula reduces the cold sore virus and calms irritating symptoms like burning and itching. Organic lemon extract, organic tea tree oil, echinacea, and peppermint completely soothe severely dry, chapped lips, and active lip conditions for a healthier, happier pout.
