Did you say soft lips?

 A little while ago, the very friendly people working at Cutecocosmetic sent me a couple of lip balms to test
Having already Pai lip balm as my favorite (click here for review), I am, however, keen to explore other brands :-).
H U R R A W is a small american company from Montana specialised in lip care manufacturing. All lip balms are vegan, handmixed, and great attention is given on ingredient selection (notice that balms are all petrolatum and paraben free) but these are not granted organic certifications. 

So, the two lip balms I tested (and still use) are the following:

Moon Balm- a super smooth and rich lip treatment for the night. Its texture is creamy, packed with wonderdul natural plant goodies such as avocado, almond, cocoa, argan and roshehip. When applied on the lips, I feel an immediate relief and repairing effect. Cocoa and shea butter are really nutritious whereas peru balsma is antiseptic and effective in treating wounds. The sweet and yummy scent of vanilla brings a funky and delicious touch to the product. After overnight use, my lips are even softer and long lasting moisturised, so great! I really recommend this stick if you have really dry lips: so effective!

...a highly conforting pillow for your lips! 9/10

Ingredients: Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, Euphorbia cerifera (candellila) wax, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, Argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil, rosa rubiginosa (rosehip) seed oil, Limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, Tocopherols (vitamin E), Vanilla planifolia (vanilla) bean, Myroxylon balsamum (peru balsam) oil, Matricaria recutita (blue chamomille) flower extract.

Orange lip balm- a wonderful scented balm for daily use. Made of butters (cocoa) and botanical oils (olive, sweet almond, castor, jojoba) all known for their soothing and regenerative properties, this lip balm is the perfect bag friend for all year round. The antioxidant vitamin E helps for the preservation of the lip balm but is also excellent in healing. Last but not least, the scent of the lipbalm is quite strong. If you love orange scent, here we go!
If orange is not your cup of tea, a variety of other scents are available. Browse through the Hurraw website for more details:
