I just received the lip balm a few days ago and I’m already in love! It takes a little getting used to the soft consistency and I think I used a bit too much initially because a tiny bit goes a long way. Makes my lips feel soft and look more smooth and it doesn’t need to be reapplies often. I already ordered more for myself and a few family members!
TALLOW LIP BALM .13 oz tube - 5 flavors
Don't just lube your lips . . . heal them! A longstanding lip balm addiction is what led our founder, Shalley, to search long and hard for a natural ingredient that provides lasting relief for dry and dehydrated lips. In fact, our brand was launched because of the discovery of such an ingredient. **Newsflash!!! This amazing ingredient is NOT beeswax. While Shalley loves all things bees, bees' wax failed to yield the relief for chapped lips she'd hoped for. After 20+ years of finding herself frequently reaching for her lip balm, enough was enough! That means you, Burt's Bees!
Ever noticed how petroleum based lip products (Chapstick, Carmex, etc.) feel so soothing at first and then must be constantly reapplied? That's because those products break down the skin on your lips . . . by design. That makes you a perpetual customer of these products.
Beeswax, while certainly a natural choice over petroleum, seems to produce a similar effect. We hear that it locks in moisture. It's a wax after all. Should be a good thing, right? In theory, yes. In practicality, perhaps not so much. We've come to discover for ourselves that "locking in moisture" is not necessarily best for our skin, and for many, it can lead to dryness.
In our philosophy, internal and external support that allows skin to breathe promotes optimal skin function, revealing its innate health and beauty.
What's our secret? Tallow is your answer to years of fruitlessly searching through lip products that don't work! This magic ingredient gives lasting moisture to your lips, and thanks to lipids that are similar to that in our own skin, it actually heals.
When we first began selling our flagship product, Tallow Lip Balms, we ran into consistency issues. This could be expected since we opted to omit waxes. Some batches were perfect, others were not. This caused us to suspend sales of our tubed lip balms until we could find a satisfactory solution. At last, we have arrived at a simple combination of tallow combined with compatible botanical butters perfect for the consistency and performance we want in a lip balm.
Instead of using potent essential oils, we scent our lip balms with 100% natural and organic flavor extracts. These flavor oils are distilled without anything artificial, synthetic, and are definitely not toxic! We hope you like our little "cocktail party" of flavors, including one unflavored, as much as we do. Because these flavor oils are completely natural, you may find that their scent is light or dissipates.
The ingredient list for these lip balms is simple: Grassfed tallow, kokum butter, murumuru butter, and organic flavor.
Note: Yes, these lip balms will melt if left in a hot car!
100% Organic Flavors include: Virgin (unflavored), Sangria, Limoncello, Peach Daiquiri, and Grasshopper (mint chocolate).
I'm an avid user of lip balms. I have used many many different kinds and was using Burts Bees before trying this tallow balm. I truly love it and it keep my lips moisturized for hours! I recommend it!
I have used the lip wip for a while and really like it. I like the convenience of the tubes over the containers of the lip wip.
Not only does the lemon smell amazing, but my lips feel so smooth and soft when I wear this balm!
I purchased the Limoncello and love this lip balm. Goes on smooth, feels great on my lips and smells so good.
I bought the sangria and peach flavors. Both are great, not at all overpowering in taste or scent (which I like). Solid enough to put in my purse and carry with me and it leaves my lips so soft and there is no drying effect whatsoever! I love how it nourishes my lips and I don't feel I have to put it on every 20 minutes, it lasts a long time. I only reapply about 2-3 times throughout the day.
