4 Cruelty-Free Lip Balms

Cruelty free lip balms 4 Cruelty Free Lip BalmsIt’s time for a second “new lip balm” stockup (check out the first one here)! In this edition, we have balms from Ellovi, Jersey Shore Sun, Victory Honey, and Biggs & Featherbelle.


Ellovi Lip Butter

If you saw my rave of Ellovi Butter, it will come as no surprise that the release of Ellovi Lip Butter 4 Cruelty Free Lip Balms had me scrambling to the virtual checkout. This is the second product in Ellovi’s short and sweet line. It appears white in the tube, but glides onto the lips totally transparent. It’s fragrance-free and I detect just the faintest “natural ingredient” scent of what I think is shea butter.


Jersey Shore Sun Lip Conditioner in Winter Mint

This balm came in my Vegan Cuts Beauty Box and was the first time I heard of the Jersey Shore Sun brand. I know I’ve mentioned that I’m a big fan of mint-scented & flavored balms, so I’ve been finding myself reaching for this often. This balm is silky smooth with a lot of slip. It gives a translucent, glossy finish. Vegan.


Victory Honey Pomegranate Lip Balm

Victory Honey is a small, handmade skincare line based in Arlington, VA. The staple ingredients are honey and wax, extracted from the owners’ family-run bee hives. The Pomegranate Lip Balm contains beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and vitamin E. The texture is a little bit crumbly and a little bit dry, but the balm feels like it forms a protective layer on your lips against harsh winter weather. It has a light, pleasant fruity scent and taste.


Biggs & Featherbelle Eskimo Kiss Minty Moisture Lip Balm

Another minty balm, the Eskimo Kiss Balm 4 Cruelty Free Lip Balms is also my first product from Biggs & Featherbelle. It’s similar to the Jersey Shore Sun balm, perhaps just slightly more solid and thick. The mint is slightly less strong than in the Jersey Shore Sun balm, but still gives that fresh, clean feel.

    Hey Catherine, great post! My new lip balm discovery (it’s also cruelty-free!) is Hurraw! I have the Earl Grey one, and the texture is pretty nice!

        Oh yeah they have a lot of interesting flavors! There’s also green tea, chai latte, coconut, and pretty much everything you can think of!

    Great post! I mostly just stick to the same ol’ thing but I just picked up a Hurraw balm in a chai flavor and I love it. It’s almost (almost!) making me leave my mint balm behind!

      I can’t find Hurraw near me and I desperately want to try it! I know if I buy it online I’ll buy way too many, but then can you really ever have too many lip balms? ;)

        I say you can’t, but that could just be me :D If you e-mail me your addy I will send you some!! After you sent me that big lovely package this winter I wanted to send you something back anyway, but I tossed the package out without thinking to cut off the return address first :P
