Ahh, lip balms. I have already lost count of all the lip balms I have lying around the house. However, the Human Heart Nature Lip Balm in Peppermint (P60) is special to me because it's the first all-natural, organic lip balm I've tried. It's the most affordable too!
It's a nice lip balm. It won't knock your socks off but its best feature really is the fact that it's natural, with no petroleum or other chemicals in the ingredient list. If your lips are sensitive and have a tendency to darken easily, this organic alternative may help you in the long run.
Texture and feel. The HHN Lip Balm has a hard, waxy texture that will really pull at your lips if you insist on swiping it. What I do is I just pat it on my lips to get the balm on! It feels quite thick so I try to wear as thin a layer as possible.
Moisturizing properties. The oils in this balm help moisturize my lips. I noticed that I don't chap as much when I use this; must be the cacao seed butter and sunflower oil!
Packaging. This lip balm is contained in a standard-issue tube covered with matte plastic labelling. It's spartan; it's the reason this balm is only P60.
Verdict. I like it. It's something I keep in my desk so I can reach for it whenever my puckers feel dry. However, if you want more emollient balms, the Human Heart Nature Lip Balm in Peppermint may not be for you. There are other affordable alternatives - but then again, they're not organic, so it really depends on your needs and preferences!
Other variants available: Tutti Frutti, Choco Fudge
