Smooth, Hydrating Natural Lip Balm-Elle Naturals
by Gillian M.
Visiting Austin, TX for South By Southwest Music Festival, in the hot Texas spring, I found myself in need of some lip balm. My lips were burnt and chapped. I walked into their big natural-grocery chain (Central Market, if I recall correctly) and headed to the skin care aisle. I found these lovely little tubes of lip balm-more oval shaped than round, but a tube, nonetheless-called Elle Naturals Lip Balm. There were about 8 flavors-and all different types-so I chose the Mango Butter with Coconut (MY FAVE) and Shea Butter Natural (unflavored-my husband quickly claimed that one)
THIS IS THE BEST LIP BALM IVE EVER USED. It was smooth, silky, and had some really great ingredients-jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, vitamin E-and all kinds of other good stuff. It's a beeswax based lip balm and really is natural. It goes on smooth and lasts a good long time-I found myself reapplying just because I liked the way it felt, though! I live in Chicago, IL, myself, and they don't have any stores carrying their stuff here yet-and they are currently working on their online store-(I signed up on their website so I can get notified when it FINALLY opens!) www.ellenaturals.com is the website.
Thanks so much Gillian for the review. I visited Elle Naturals website and it is still in the works so there are no ingredient lists yet. I did contact them and they sent me an ingredient list. Below are the ingredients used in the product Gillian mentions Mango Butter Coconut:
Mango Butter COCONUT- Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Cera Alba(Beeswax), Mango Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Seed Oil, Soybean Oil, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Pink Grapefruit Oil, Vitamin E Acetate, Coconut Flavor Oil
As of this writing their on-line store was not open but this product can be purchased at many natural foods stores throughout Texas. Visit them at:http://www.ellenaturals.com/
