Lip balms and lip treatments sort of fall into a disappointing abyss for me. I've tried many, liked some, and have completely committed to maybe two - in my entire lifetime. The claims of soothing and healing chapped, dry lips or preventing it in the first place usually fall flat. Sometimes as a result of too much wax, or other harmful ingredients, which dries out lips and creates a perpetual cycle. Often its in staying power, it feels good, works good, but doesn't stay or dries out, so doesn't have a chance to heal. A little frustrating, isn't it?

I don't have to tell you that chapped lips are a pain in the you know what and if you lick them to try and hydrate, you're removing oil that is essential as a protectant. The right treatment will seal in moisture and further protect your lips from inclement conditions. But many of the "right" products are not what we are bombarded with in stores and commercials, even the ones that can say "natural". Your lip product should NOT contain parabens, artificial colors or fragrances, menthol, camphor, phenol, or alcohol. This will continue to dry your skin. Petroleum jelly and mineral oil should also never be in your lip products. They suffocate lips, so while it doesn't let moisture out it also doesn't let it in. They're also both derived from Petroleum and may contain cancer causing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) - otherwise known as bad stuff that also causes lips to age prematurely. SKIP.

So, now that we've made it clear that your lip products should be chosen with regard we have to deal with items that actually work. I'll make that easy for you, HENNE ORGANICS. Yes, just one option, easy peasy.

This luxury organic lip treatment is legit. After using it one time my lips were on their way to a better place, which was welcomed after flying, changing weather and that never ceasing chase on getting them back to normal. Much less when I use it on repeat, I don't even think about dryness.

It smells of Shea Butter, which is a base ingredient, combined with Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil and Vitamin E. All organic, none tested on animals, each crucial to adding the right moisture and protection. The product is thin and stays on your lips for hours, which is essential in allowing your moisture levels to normalize and heal any damage. It's also a great use for other extremely dry annoyances like cuticles, hands, elbows, etc.

All in all, it's claims won't let you down, nor will it's ingredients surprise you or cause you harm. I will be purchasing another pot for the rest of my life.
