Review: MadeFromEarth Lip Balms; Vanilla, Blueberry, Citrus Fresh, & Spearmint

2012-07-15 18.21.28

As a lip balm girl, I was extremely excited to be able to test out 4 AMAZING lip balms from one of my favorite companies MadeFromEarth. Of course, the name hits the company right on the head- Made Organically. No chemicals, no preservatives, and nothing to be ashamed about putting on your lips.

Most chap sticks and lip balms contain petroleum products and contain harsh chemicals. If you have kids or lick your lips a lot- you need to think about what will happen if it’s ingested into your body. Made From Earth is a company that is dedicated to providing “organic, holistic, and healthy” so I always feel safe letting my little girl use my lip balms from them!

Made From Earth offers 5 varieties of lip balms: Blueberry, Citrus Fresh, Mocha, Spearmint and the one I had the pleasure of trying Vanilla. The only one I haven’t had the pleasure of trying is the mocha.

All of these lip balms are extremely moisturizing, splashing my lips with  the always amazing vitamin E. Vitamin E is amazing in a lip balm because it protects the skin against UV rays, provides relief to chapped and dry skin, and is helpful because it contains antioxidants which help keep skin looking as aged.

Each of these lip balms are impressive in their own way. They are all cruelty free , suitable for all skin types, and rich in antioxidants. They never have any chemicals in them, so they are free from artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Nothing but nicely blended together organic products that are even safe for kids.!  I love that each one has the symbol of what’s in it ON the outside of the tube, so when I have them all together in my purse- I can easily reach for the one I want to use at the time!

Vanilla Lip Balm with Vitamin E

Warm. Calm. Relaxing. Organic ingredients with vanilla designed to soothe and calm your lips. For all vanilla lovers, welcome home.

My Thoughts*

This is the most relaxing out of the four lip balms. The sweet hint of vanilla makes me think of a nice fall day with vanilla cookies baking in the oven. It’s very warm, calming, and soothing to the senses.

I love putting a dab of this overtop of a subdued brown or maybe light pink lipstick. The hint of vanilla overtop of my lipstick keeps the makeup smell away and keeps my lips even more hydrated. It keeps the lipstick from drying out or becoming clumpy.

Ingredients:


Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Vanilla Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Extract, Organic Calendula.

 

Blueberry Lip Balm

Antioxidant rich blueberry lip balm for all berry lovers. Rich and healthy. Blueberry lip balm is designed to heal lips while providing a juicy blueberry flavor.

My Thoughts*

Out of all fruits, blueberry tasting ANYTHING has me won over hands down. I love the smell and sweet taste of blueberries. It’s just so yummy. It keeps my lips moisturized for about 2-3 hours before I have to put it back on.

Soft, healthy, beautiful lips with an amazing smell and taste. I’ve never had the experience of using a lip balm that had anything to do with blueberries before MadeFromEarth. They are some VERY smart people, always thinking of not only the customers health, but what they will LIKE. I definitely love the thought of having an organic lip balm that is good for me AND smells amazing.

About our Ingredients:


Blueberry extract which is a mix of blue purple and black in color is one of the richest sources of antioxidants. They are full of phytonutrients which gives them their deep color. Known for repairing damaged tissue by stabilizing the collagen matrix and promoting biosynthesis.

 

 

Citrus Fresh Lip Balm

Citrus Fresh tastes like a delicious mix of lemons, limes and fresh squeezed oranges.

This organic and chemical free lip balm contains vitamin-rich sunflower seed oil and protecting beeswax to avoid a chapped lip texture to aid the production of collagen in the lips, with the sweet taste of oranges.

 

My Thoughts*

Yummy tasting and smelling. This is like a mixture between oranges, lemons, and limes, all tasting freshly squeezed. I love eating fruit, any and all kind- so when I smelled this I was in fruit heaven. The citrus fruits in this give it a high volume of detoxifying properties.

Because of the sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E, and Besswax my lips always stay moisturized and protected from becoming dry and chapped which can cause cracking and pain.

About our Ingredients:


Citrus fruits has been proven to have detoxification properties due to the high concentration of vitamin C. In topical form, they can help to alleviate skin problems, and when used on a regular basis, protect the skin from sun damage and aging.

ingredients:
Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Essential Oils of Orange, Lemon and Lime, Vitamin E, Rosemary Extract, Organic Calendula.

Spearmint Lip Balm

Ancient Greeks used spearmint to scent their bathwater, and in the medieval times it was used for oral hygiene. Today, we can use spearmint (topical) in the form of lip balm to provide an antiseptic, stimulant and restorative. This spearmint lip balm has a fresh minty flavor which was extracted from the spearmint trees in Oregon, USA.

My Thoughts*

When I bring this to my lips, I think about chewing doublemint gum. That’s exactly what this smells AND tastes like. There isn’t anything overpowering about this amazing lip balm. It’s minty, sweet, and works amazing in curing chapped, dry lips. I even had a cold sore and this helped cure it, when I continually used it.

Organic Sun flower Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Spearmint Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Extract, Organic Calendula.
