My lips have been addicted to Vaseline for many years. I’ve tried different moisturizers but couldn’t find a lip balm that conquered my addiction. Until a few weeks ago. The lovely folks at Epic Blend sent me some samples of their natural lip balm. Now I’m smitten with it, without being addicted.
Natural Lip Balm Cred
Epic Blend has all of the criteria for natural lip balms: they don’t contain petroleum, gluten, parabens or GMO ingredients; they’re not tested on animals; and they use nutrient-dense and organic ingredients.
Each of their lip balms have their own strengths: hemp-based as an antioxidant and quick absorber, organic shea butter for an extra burst of moisture, Candelilla wax for a smooth texture, vegan for a plant-based choice, and even a tinted option (Merlot colour) with a subtle shimmer.
Epic Blend Review
I find the lip balms to have a smooth application, they feel light, and they keep my lips soft for hours. I love the various flavours, which are subtle and not overly sweet (which I appreciate). I have the Grape, Pineapple Mint, Hemp Coconut, and Hemp Raspberry-Pomegranate flavours, and I’m not sure I can choose a favourite: I’m applying all of them equally.
Epic Blend natural lip balms can be found on their website (international shipping available), at retail stores across Canada, and in a couple of stores near Seattle, WA. Check the website under “Stockists” to see if they’ve expanded to any other cities.
