Review - skinnyskinny Tea Tree & Mint Lip Balm

It's 100% organic. It goes on nice, smooth and light. It's not at all waxy or oily. It's not too hard and not too soft. It's just right. It has a matte finish, so it's perfect for men and women who want to protect and moisturize their lips but don't want the high-shine that goes along with most lip balms. This balm stays put, which means that you don't need to keep reapplying every few minutes.

I know, I totally know what your thinking "Tea Tree in a lip balm... Yuck!" But no, the people over at skinnyskinny are definitely on the right track with this organic, natural, completely awesome little stick of Balm! The company's policies on waste and recycling are to be commended, and they try to use fair trade ingredients. Um, yeah... I think all companies should be this contentious. BUT... The really important part is how the Balm works, right? Well I have to tell you I have been using it on and off for about a week now, and I love it. The mint is mild and refreshing, and the Tea Tree is hardly noticable smell wise, it does it's job in the curing cracks and chappedness department, though. It is made with all of these wonderful moisture-giving oils and butters so your skin feels so soft, and protected, and It really stays put. Just the solution for super-chapped winter lips!
