Green Beauty Review: Hurraw! Lip Balm

Hurraw! Lip BalmBy Dr. Jen Newell, ND

I love beauty products and am constantly on the hunt for the perfect lip balm, one that nourishes, moisturizes and provides a subtle shine without being sticky, greasy or waxy.

I was recently introduced to Hurraw! Lip Balm by the lovely ladies at the Integrative Health Institute. We sell this very popular lip balm at the clinic in a variety of flavours and the team and our clients had nothing but great reviews so I hopped on the band wagon and gave the chai and black cherry flavours a try.

Description of Hurraw! Lip Balm:

All natural, vegan, made from premium raw, organic and fair trade ingredients…complete with a bunch of natural and fun flavor options! It also had to meet some tough criteria… Super smooth, not draggy, not sticky, not sweet, not too glossy, not too smelly, never grainy, long lasting; plus, it had to hold up to being in a back jeans pocket all day without melting!

My Thoughts:

This lip balm is amazing! It completely lives up to the company’s description. The scent is subtle and there is no discernable taste or sweetness to the balm. The texture is smooth, creamy and non-sticky. It provides lasting natural moisture to the lips. The chai flavour was warm, spicy and smelled amazing! The black cherry balm had a tint of sheer red and brightened up my post-winter complexion. I couldn’t pick a favourite and have been taking both with me everywhere.

I really love the oval shaped tube that Hurraw! Lip Balm uses. It fits nice into pockets and is really unique. Added bonus: the tubes are made from 50% recycled plastic materials.

I highly recommend Hurraw! Lip Balms. They are a great product made from natural and nourishing ingredients created by an environmentally conscious and ethical company.

Pick up a tube…or 2 at the Integrative Health Institute for $3.79.
