I absolutely love this lip product! It’s gentle and the smell and taste is lovely and subtle. The fact that it’s vegan and has no plastic is great for my zero waste lifestyle as well! Will be coming back for more
Really nice lip balm in a great biodegradable/compostable tube! I’m really happy with my purchase and the shop was really great to work with.

Genius applicator gives me the most use of a great product. Smooth consistency and mild flavor/fragrance make it a win.
Just as nice and effective as the other lip therapies. While the product itself is deep red, the colour does not show up much when applied.

I do not wear lip stick so this was a nice product to find so I can add a bit of color without the weight of a lipstick. The color looks dark in the tube but when I apply it the color is light, almost a blush pink. This is fine with me as I just want a bit of color but I can layer on to add more color. This lip balm does not stain nor come off too easy but has staying power. The scent is light, fresh and the packaging is amazing and is not another plastic tube I worrying about losing. GREAT color, moisturizing, and a new product that has become a favorite!
