Beautycounter Lip Balm Review

It’s time to really go through all the lip balms that we have and give them a good testing, because the weather is certainly right for it.

Up to the plate is Beautycounter’s balm – their’s is called Lip Conditioner and comes in a peppermint and Calendula formula.

I’m testing the peppermint here because it’s what I have.

The ingredients are obviously going to be on the natural side: no mineral oils here. These are the ingredients:

 Persea Gratissima (Avocado) OilCera Alba/Beeswax/Cire d’abeilleRicinus Communis (Castor) Seed OilOlus/Vegetable Oil/Huile végétaleButyrospermum Parkii (Shea) ButterLimnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed OilMentha Piperita (Peppermint) OilCandelilla Cera/Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax/Cire de candelillaHydrogenated Vegetable OilLanolinTocopherol (Vitamin E)Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf OilSimmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil

The lip conditioner is solid, but melts easily on the lips when you apply it.  I like that it’s easy to apply, but the finish is slightly oily instead of greasy.  What this means is that it doesn’t coat the lips as well as a traditional balm and so it doesn’t seem to hydrate or make them feel conditioned.  I also found the mint in this a little strong for my liking – I’d prefer the other flavour.

But if you want to give something natural a try, this is a good option.  It is moisturizing but less so than a traditional balm.  It also doesn’t have beeswax in it, so if you are not into using a wax-based lip balm, you could give this a try.

Available online for $22.
