I finally received my order from Jadewicks! After months of eyeing her balms and the frequent recommendations by others to try them, I took the plunge! I was also glad that these balms didn't melt with how hot it's been outside. Here's the low down on these highly anticipated balms.

I love extra care in the packaging like this! It really is the little
Company: Jadewicks

Flavors: Blood Orange, Sparkling Lychee, Asian Peach, and Chamomile Pear. Christine was nice enough to throw in a free sample of Chamomile Pear! Yay! The Blood Orange isn't as "bloody" as I'd like to it be, if that makes sense. My really good blood orange balms have a huge indicator that they're blood orange instead of just orange. This balm, unfortunately for me, seems just like sweet orange. Not saying that's bad, I do love orange flavored balms, but I was hoping for a sharp, distinct scent of blood orange. The Sparkling Lychee is hard to get the scent I think. It's not crazy strong so the first time I smelled it I thought there was no scent at all. But if you inhale a little more you get it! It's a very light lychee scent! This is to be expected since lychee fruit don't really have a crazy strong scent. I thought this would be my favorite scent of the bunch, followed by Blood Orange but it wasn't. I definitely liked the Asian Peach the best. The Asian Peach is really pleasant, it's peach with a very, very tiny hint of ginger. I'm not a huge fan of ginger but I was hoping for just a smidge more ginger but I can't really complain! It smells absolutely delicious! The Chamomile Pear is wonderful. It is a soft, crisp pear scent. There's not really anything much to say there; it is as it says it should be. I was hoping these flavors would have a stronger punch since I LOVE balms with strong, delicious scents. But, if you like softer scented balms, these may be the ones for you!

Wear: These balms go on very smooth. The very first use for each balm I had to struggle a little to get it going but once it was going it was good to go! It goes on super smooth. However, I can still feel the chapped-ness of my lips through the balm so I'm not sure if it completely nourishes and moisturizes my lips deeply. I have other balms where you can't feel any chapped-ness after applying and maybe that makes me biased. The balm lasts about two hours which is great!

Packaging: These tubes are so simple and to the point, I love it! There is no extra clutter on the labels or anything distracting. Just simple a white tube of average size with a colored band matching the flavor and a colored line on the label. I love the simplicity of these balms. This is a good example of why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, these balms are not simple or plain.

Price: 3 tubes for $9. Not too shabby for a natural balm especially since every order gets a free sample. The samples are not "sample" size either, they're full sized (at least for the lip balm)!

Pros: Flavors, Packaging, Wear, Price, Sample with every order

Rating: 4 out of 5 twists. I would definitely recommend trying these balms, you get a free sample with every order and the balms are made fresh when you order. You even get to pick what sample you want! What more could you ask for? I now see why these balms are always recommended to me!


Sparkling Lychee, Blood Orange, Asian Peach: Beeswax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Tocopherol, Flavor.

Chamomile Pear: Beeswax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Tocopherol, Flavor, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract.

Lush Lip Candy (Fresh and Natural Co)

I placed this order a while ago and am so excited it came today! I hope you guys have tried Lush Lip Candy/Fresh and Natural Co already but if you haven't, get to it! I ordered a lip balm and lip scrub combo and since it was a buy one get one free deal, I received two lip balms and two lip scrubs..or I thought that's what I'd receive at least. The lip scrubs will be reviewed in the near future when I've got a real opportunity to use them. I've never used a lip scrub before so it'll be quite the adventure! Also, I apologize for the crazy amount of pictures, I was really obsessed with the packaging and taking pictures outdoors. Without further adieu....

Seriously, look at how cute the packaging is on these!
This is definitely different from before and I LOVE it!

Company: Lush Lip Candy (now Fresh and Natural Co)

Flavors: Blueberry Lemonade, Acai Peach & Papaya, Glamour Girl, and Blushing Apricot. Glamour Girl and Blushing Apricot are lip tints that I received as freebies; I was very surprised when I opened the package and found four tubes instead of two. Although I'm not a huge lip tint fan (I prefer colorless, deliciously scented balms) I will write about what I think of them. The Blueberry Lemonade is a PERFECT blend of Blueberries and sweet, tangy lemonade. I say this one is up near my Lemon and Blueberry from C.O. Bigelow (reviewed here) and the Blueberry Lemon from Orange Thyme (reviewed here). I just love this combination of two of my favorite things! I had no idea what to expect from the Acai Peach & Papaya balm; it is such a crazy blend of different complementary flavors. It smells so sweet, like candy. I can't really describe what it's like but it is fruity and pleasant. I don't think I'm that big of an Acai berry fan but I didn't mind it in this balm. The Glamour Girl has no scent really, I thought it was a little minty at first but it's pretty unscented. Blushing Apricot was the same way.
Blushing Apricot is on the
left and Glamour girl is on
the right.

Wear: True to the previous balms I've purchased, these balms go on SO smooth! There is no fight in these balms, they just melt on your lips and go on so easily. There's great coverage too! I love oval shaped tubes, I just feel that they contour to your lips better than circular tubes. Glamour girl is a light red color, it doesn't show up on my skin and doesn't show up really on my lips. The Blushing Apricot makes my lips look a little bronze and I think that's the color it was going for.

Packaging: Like I said, these balms are kept in oval tubes and have very cute labels! The labels match the flavor and there is a big section dedicated to the balms flavor. These balms are just adorable. Also, she changed the material the labels are made out of! They are no longer just paper, they are waxy which is great to prevent fading of the label over time. Yay!

Price: A lip balm and scrub set costs $6. I think that's quite a deal! A lip balm alone is $3.25 and a lip tint is $5.50. A scrub alone is $4. I always think these balms are worth it and the prices are always crazy reasonable.

Pros: Flavors, packaging, price, wear, natural
Cons: Nothing

Rating: 4 out of 5 twists. Do yourself a favor and try these balms! There are TONS of flavors and flavor combinations, you will definitely find something that fits your tastes.

For Balms: Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Avocado Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Chamomile Extract, Orchid Extract, Vitamin E, Natural Flavor Oils and Natural Sweetener.

For Lip Tints: Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Chamomile Extract, Orchid Extract, Flavor Oil, Natural Sweetener, (May contain Mica, FD&C Color, Carmine, Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide).

Have you tried these balms yet? Which flavors do you have your eyes on?

Balms I've got my eye on

Here's another one of the new features I'll try implementing into the blog: balms I've been meaning to try but can't justify purchasing or just balms I've stumbled upon this week. Also, most of these are from Etsy just FYI. So here goes:

(taken from here)

This balm looks SO delicious. I know I've had a reader recommend them to me before but I'm still hesitant until I can find a couple other flavors I like. (I like to buy at least two balms from a single company for comparisons.)

(taken from here)

If you've been following along, you KNOW how much I LOVE balms from Orange Thyme. They are just phenomenal! This is a new flavor and I really want to try it, I think it'd be great for summer!

(taken from here)

I think this would be a crazy combination and a very interesting one, my favorite fruit mixed with mint (another one of my favorites)?! That sounds mind blowing! (It seems I've got an orange theme going on here...hmm..)

(taken from here)

I have been crazy about coconut lemongrass balms ever since my first order from Lush Lip Candy (now Fresh and Natural Co). They are just like candy to me, they're fabulous! 

There, I broke the orange theme I had going on for a minute!

I think these balms would be great for summer.

Have any of you tried any of these balms? Or these companies? What balms have you been eyeing lately?

Have a good rest of the week!

Some News and A Favor!

Hey all!

I've got some pretty important news I stumbled upon. Lush Lip Candy has become Fresh & Natural Co. I just wanted to make sure that everyone who loves Lush Lip Candy or who has wanted to try Lush Lip Candy and has yet to do so will continue to get the opportunity to try and love these products as much as I do. (I just received an order today from her, yay!) So for future orders you can go to They also have a new Facebook page which you can find here. And don't worry the products are still the same great products with the very, very cute packaging! (I will review the new balms this week hopefully!)

Something that doesn't really have to do with lip balm but would really mean SO much to me if you could do is this: Chase is offering $250,000 grants to small businesses and my boyfriend's aunt (who is probably one of my most favorite people in this whole world and really deserves this) needs 250 votes by this Saturday. All you have to do is:

Log in with your facebook id
Type in the business box
Click search
Click support

And that's it! I would really really appreciate it if those of you with Facebook could do that for me. I would also love if you guys could spread the word to your other Facebook friends.

If by Saturday she gets 250 votes I will host a giveaway for some delicious lip balms!

Thank you all SO much!

C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries Part II

Hi all!

I can finally let go of some of the stress that's been following me night and day for the last couple of months. Woohoo! Last week my boyfriend and I went to go check out the Bath and Body Works Semi Annual Sale (I can't help but go every time they have one). Most of the stuff I had on my "must-buy" list was not found in the store because they had already sold out (I went on the second day of the sale!). So as I was wandering throughout the store I found where they were getting rid of a ton of Liplicious Lip Glosses, I looked at the lip glosses and didn't really care for them. That's when I realized that they were also getting rid of a ton of lip balm! I never wanted to buy these lip balms before because they were SO expensive for a single tube, but for $3 I couldn't pass them up! I bought two different brands of lip balm, one of which will be in this review for this week.

I apologize for the poor quality in these photos,
the sun is long gone as I am writing this way too
late in the day.
Company: C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries

Flavors: Vanilla Mint and Cinnamint. The Vanilla Mint is an AMAZING blend of vanilla and mint. They're both pretty subtle as flavors but they're definitely there. There's really not much else to say about that one except that if you like mint and vanilla, this is definitely a balm you should try. I didn't know how I would feel about the Cinnamint because I've never had a lip balm that had cinnamon in it. I do like cinnamon though! It was a very light cinnamon scent mixed with mint, I thought it would be a little unusual but I actually find it quite pleasant. Neither flavor is super strong which is great because I couldn't imagine putting a ton of cinnamon on my lips.

Wear: They go on pretty smooth and REALLY thick. You only need about one or one and a half swipes per lip to get good coverage. I think the balm is bigger in diameter than a usual stick of lip balm so it covers really well. Also, I didn't know this until I had gotten home and looked up the lip balm, these balms go on with a matte finish. There's no shine at all! It really blows my mind! I don't know why I think it's so amazing (it's probably because all my balms go on shiny). This would probably be great for any male readers out there! Also, they last about two hours or more even with me biting and licking my lips.

Packaging: The tubes are a little thicker than average balms I think. Also both tubes have black caps and labels that pertain to the flavor of the tube. I think this tubes look a little more classy compared to usual balms. It may be just me but there's something fancy about the packaging of these balms.

Price: These balms are usually $7.50 a piece and there's NO WAY I'd pay that much for a tube of balm. Usually these balms qualify for the buy two get one free lip care at Bath and Body Works. However, since the Semi Annual Sale is underway, you can find these balms for $3 a piece! That is TOTALLY worth it for these balms.

Pros: Flavors, Wear, Packaging, Price, Unisex (packaging and matte finish)
These lip balms are even kitty approved!
Cons: Not enough flavors!

Rating: 5 out of 5 twists. These balms are PHENOMENAL. I'd definitely head to a Bath and Body Works near you to grab one of these babies before they're gone.


For Vanilla Mint: Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Beeswax (Cera Alba, Cire d'abeille), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Microcrystalline Wax (Cera Microcristallina, Cire Microcristalline), Polyethylene, Myristyl Myristate, Ozokerite, C18-70 Isoparaffin, Flavor (Aroma), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Echinacea Purpurea Root Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Sodium Saccharin, Menthyl Lactate.

--The Chapstick Wrangler

Epically Epic Soap Co.

Thanks to one of my readers, who recommended Epically Epic Soap Co. a while ago, I've got to try some pretty awesome balms from this company. I had always seen these balms around on Etsy (one of my greatest additions, I'm sure we all have that in common) and wanted to purchase but just never did. Usually it takes a reader recommending something to push me to buy an item I've had my eye on for a while. Let's get to it, shall we?

Company: Epically Epic Soap Co.

Mango Lassi, P.O.G., Mango Lychee
(left to right)
Flavors: Mango Lychee, Mango Lassi, P.O.G. (Passionfruit Orange Guava). I really love the Mango flavors; I've been looking for a decent mango lip balm since mangoes are probably my number one favorite fruit (despite the crazy--to me--amount of calories in one). The Mango Lychee is definitely a mango-esque balm. I don't really sense the Lychee in it but it must be what makes this balm different from the Mango Lassi balm. Maybe I just can't pick out the Lychee out of it but the two balms are different in scent. The Mango Lassi seems a bit sweeter than the Mango Lychee, but is definitely still very mango-y. Not the mango-y I was looking for but it will definitely do. I was really looking forward to the P.O.G. lip balm since I love tropical mixes like that but there was something in it that I just didn't care for. This balm was very floral to me and everyone knows how much I dislike a floral balm. If you like fruity floral balms, this may be the one for you! I really wish I had picked up the Blueberry Lemonade lip balm, I kept going back and forth on Blueberry Lemonade and P.O.G.. Maybe next time!

Wear: These balms go on SO smooth and kinda thick which I like because I don't have to waste time going around and around my mouth to make sure I have great coverage. When my lips are super chapped I definitely reach for Epically Epic. They last about two hours to which is great. They even lasted through crazy amount of nose blowing (too much information? I've had a little cold lately and these balms are the only ones who last when it comes to my use of tissues).

Packaging: These tubes are really distinct out of my collection. The labels are bright colors and have a giant part dedicated to the company's name and the flavor. On the edges of the label (vertically if the tube is put standing up on a table) there is a little floral black and white pattern which to me gives these tubes a little eclectic look to it, which I totally love.

Price I paid $10.50 for 3 balms. I don't think that's really that bad for a natural, long lasting, and nourishing lip balm.

Pros: Flavors, Wear, Packaging, Price, Vegan/Natural

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 twists, these balms are great! If you're looking for a new balm to try, definitely give this company a shot!

Ingredients: Pistachio Butter, Candelilla Wax, Jojoba Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Vitamin E, Flavor, Natural Sweetener, Mineral Colorant.

Have you tried Epically Epic Soap Co.? What did you think? If you haven't, what flavors do you think you'd like to purchase from them?

Softlips Watermelon

Hi all!

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that L had told me she found the new Softlips Watermelon while she was at target and picked it up for me right? Well now here's the scoop on this delicious new lip balm! Thanks, L for always providing me with tons of new and unique balms that I would probably never find without you.

Company: Softlips

I hope you don't mind the photo, I thought
I would utilize the gorgeous sunlight coming
in through my window today.
Flavor: Watermelon. This balm reminds me of a Watermelon jolly rancher. It's super sweet and fruity and I really dig it. I didn't know what to expect when I opened it but I definitely like it. I'm totally glad I voted for this on the Softlips Facebook page; I could not imagine picking up chocolate or cinnamon balm made by them, it's just not like them!

Wear: As with all of their balms, Softlips balms go on crazy smooth. You do have to go back and forth a couple times because of the balm being half the diameter of the usual lip balm. It also goes on a little thin but you have to go back and forth anyway, so problem solved? It also lasts about an hour or so which isn't so bad. It also has SPF 20 which is great!

Packaging: The typical Softlips tube: it's a thin white tube with a cute little font saying Softlips and then everything else is written in a cute pink font to match the Watermelon flavor. I love the simplicity of this packaging and the feminine look of this tube.

Price: I didn't purchase this one since L bought it for me but I think it can be found for about $4 for a package of 2.

Pros: Super smooth, flavor, packaging, price
Cons: None

Rating: 4 out of 5 twists; this is a limited edition flavor so I would definitely purchase it if you are a Softlips fan. I love their limited edition flavors (and really any brands limited edition flavors) so I think it is worth it to purchase.

Have any of you tried Softlips Watermelon? If you have, what did you think about it? If you haven't, why not?

Future Ideas for the Blog

Sometime in the last two weeks I was thinking about what else I would like to do for this blog. I know I write two reviews a week and I write occasional other entries for when company’s have sales and such but I don’t post very much else. I don’t like to add too much fluff because, well, I want it to be quick for you guys to read and to get my opinion across on the product.

I figured a new feature I could include could be the balms I’m crazy about this week. Every week I write about balms I’ve used and what I think about them, but that does not necessarily mean that is the balm I am crazy about and using like crazy that week. I often have two or so balms a week that are always on me or in hand. Some weeks I’m really obsessed with one particular balm and the next week it’s on to the next.

I also thought I could start including more images from my travels, well not my travels for real but perhaps my balms in the various places I travel to and from. You guys always hear about where I’ve gone and where I’ve picked up some new balm, but you never really see where they’ve been; with the exception of my posts on Bath and Body Works’ Liplicious Lip Glosses and Savannah Bee Company from my trip to Florida last week.

Another thing I may start to include once in a while are the balms I’m dying to try but just can’t justify buying and trying at the moment. Being The Chapstick Wrangler, I am frequently browsing new lip balms and lip balm companies. I can’t buy every single one and it’s often very difficult to pick and choose which ones I do end up buying, so I suppose a list of dream balms could pop up in the future.

Is there anything else that you guys would like to see or for me to include in this blog? I do like to involve you guys in the decision making process, I do write these things for you all, after all.

--The Chapstick Wrangler

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lip Balm

I can’t really remember when I picked up this balm; pretty sure it was when I was visiting the boyfriend at school one weekend. I had just always seen it at every place I’d ever looked for lip balms (okay a slight exaggeration but you catch my drift…it was pretty common) and figured, why not. It wasn’t crazy expensive and I hadn’t picked up a balm in a while so I went for it. Here’s the breakdown:

Company: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

Flavor:I guess this flavor is called Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lip Balm since the other flavors that have actual flavors to them are called by other names; those other flavors are also contained in squeeze tubes so I'd imagine they are more of a gloss than an actual "balm". This balm has a very light scent of cocoa-y goodness. It’s almost unscented, but if you’re patient enough to take a good whiff…you’ll detect a slight undertone of cocoa. You’d expect that of course because it is the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula.

Wear: This balm glides on great, when my lips are SUPER chapped this balm seems to glide over the chappedness (I know, this is not a word) with ease. It also makes my lips feel SUPER moisturized and nourished…my lips feel much smoother and softer once it’s on. It contains Vitamin E and has an SPF of 15 which is great.

Packaging: This tube seems very basic to me; I feel like all Palmer’s products have had the same look for forever—but why change the outside when the inside is so great? The tube is white with a light blue label on it. Palmer’s is in an Orange oval on the front which sticks out on this blue label. To twist up the balm you twist the whole bottom of the tube instead of a little twister at the bottom (similar to Kiss My Face products if you’ve ever used them—which reminds me, I should write a review on them soon because I don’t think I have yet).

Price: I think it was around $2-3 which is not too shabby. It’s great if your lips are SUPER chapped (I will stop saying “SUPER” soon I promise…but this balm is SUPER).

Pros: Flavor, Wear, Packaging, Price…all were great
Cons: I don’t really like all of the chemicals that go into making this balm. Also, maybe more availability of other flavors? I've only ever seen this one flavor, but I'd definitely like to try the others (even if they are in squeeze tubes)!
Rating: 3.75 out of 5 twists, it’s a great balm but a little on the basic side; I like my balms to usually have a really distinct scent and flavor. But, I really like to use this balm under lipstick and when my lips are SUPER dry (last time, I promise).

Ingredients: Octinoxate, oxybenzone, dimethicone, mineral oil, microcrystalline wax, coppernicia cerifera wax, theobroma cocoa seed butter, fragrance, tocopheryl acetate, benzyl alcohol, beta carotene, isopropyl myristate

Aubrey Organics--Peppermint & Tea Tree

Hello all! I am updating from inside a plane right now! (This is very exciting for me because we never purchase WiFi on planes!)

I apologize for the delays that have been occurring the last two weeks. I’ve been on vacation both weeks (last week was Orlando and this week was Los Angeles, I know…I travel way too much). The night before our flight, my boyfriend and I made a special trip to Whole Foods to buy some TOMS! I finally gave into the craze (I try so hard to stay away from these fads, but they looked so comfy and I needed a pair of shoes to walk around in that was not my mid-calf boots which I’ve been known to wear every single day of the year). Of course, since I was at Whole Foods, the lip balm aisle needed to be given a thorough look over; especially since I hadn’t been to that Whole Foods yet. I picked up two balms; one of which will be the feature of this review! (Who would have guessed?) Without further adieu…
I wanted to incorporate more of my travels with my balms so
here it is! Yes I was taking pictures of lip balm while sitting at
my gate. And yes people thought I was crazy, little did they
know that I was The Chapstick Wrangler!

Company: Aubrey Organics

Flavor: Peppermint & Tea Tree. This is a great mild peppermint lip balm. If you only like moderate mint and lip tingle then this may be the balm for you. There’s a slight tingle, not as much as some of my favorite mint lip balms but it’s still great!

Wear: This balm goes on great, no resistance is found with the first application. All subsequent applications are flawless. There are no complaints in this department. It feels thin when going on but you really don’t need that much to get good coverage.

Packaging: The size of this tube is your average lip balm tube size and the packaging has a very “pepperminty” or “candy cane” feel to it. The label itself is red on a white tube with the label having one corner containing image of half a peppermint candy. The cap on this is black. The red, white, and black combination just reminds me of candy canes and Christmas.

Price: Around $3 which I think is great for an organic balm.

Pros: Packaging, Price, Flavor, Wear…the whole thing is great
Cons: Nothing is wrong with this balm!

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 twists, this is a great additional minty balm to have in any collection.

Ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba seed oil, hemp seed oil, peppermint leaf oil, rosa mosqueta seed oil, vitamin E, tea tree oil
