These interesting little gems caught my eye on IG and since I’m on my “green & clean” path I decided to check them out. The formula goes on nice and smooth. I have a stick from another brand and it seems very hard to apply. This one is chock full of amazing oils & butters. While you can smell the mint from the package, you don’t taste it or otherwise isn’t on your lips (which I wouldn’t mind either way). And while I do love the packaging in all its eco glory, I wonder how it is during summer. If it’s hot and the product gets a bit soft, does some get smashed in the tube and wasted? I suppose you can always tesr the package open since it isn’t plastic! It is a really good, sustainable product though. I love & appreciate the hand made, small batch aspect too! Thank you so much for caring to make such a great product!

I had tried the orange lip therapy, and it didn’t disappoint! It’s so moisturizing and smelled so great. Knowing that I helped saved two sea turtles in the process was the cherry on top!

This is a really fun lip balm. LOVE the smart, inventive, eco – friendly packaging, recycle or compost it. Feels good in the hand, small enough to travel anywhere with me. The lip balm is so moisturizing, goes on smooth and stays on for a long time. In the case the lip balm gets hard or difficult to push through I just put it in my back pocket for a moment or two and it’ll soften right up. Sometimes a smidge may end in the cap but that hardly happens and I just use a q-tip to get it out. LOVE the Cali orange scent – it’s so fresh, fruity, zesty and smells amazing. This is such a great lip balm and hopefully the company will come up with more scents (Vanilla maybe??) GREAT lip balm!!
Bought the Cali Orange lip balm at a small shop in Joshua Tree CA. Love it!! Squeezed everything I could out of the tube and even scraped out the excess on the sides after. I live at high altitude so my lips are always dry but the tube lasted me over two months. Plastic-free packaging held up great in my bag despite me taking it out and putting it back in often. Great product!
