A little while ago our family picked up the Green Beaver Zesty Orange toothpaste again. We had reviewed it many moons ago and although we the adults did not like it much at the time, fast forward to 2014 and it happens to be my big kid’s favourite toothpaste. She never participated in the original review because she was much too young to try out adult toothpaste.
Part of the reason why we decided to buy the Green Beaver Zesty Orange toothpaste again was because it came with a Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm. The toothpaste was about $3.99 and lip balm alone is usually about that much so it seemed like a great bargain and gave me a chance to test out yet another Green Beaver product.
My big kid was eager to try the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm since she’s going through an “I love all things citrus” phase.
Yeah, well, about that….
Product Review: What ingredients are in Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm?
Here are the ingredients that went into the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Beeswax*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil*, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil*, Menthol*, Squalene, Beta-sitosterol, Tocopherol .* ingredients from Organic Farming
The Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm seems to be made with choice ingredients that are much better than the average chapstick found in most drug stores. I mean, when was the last time a typical drug store chapstick could tell you that they used organic beeswax? Try, NEVER! The rest of the other ingredients are equally impressive.
The only thing is…my kid isn’t a big fan of the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm and I’m not quite sure how to explain why.
Product Test: is the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm any good?
The first time my daughter used the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm she said she liked it and said it was fun to use an orange flavoured chapstick. The second time she went to use it, she said it smelled a little off. Do I dare tell you what she thought the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm smelled like? Put it this way: she thought it smelled like the bathroom.
Yep, that’s what she said.
So, I sniff the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm and I didn’t notice anything but she was quite adamant that there was THAT smell. I continued to smell the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm and finally, I got a hint of what she was referring to. Now, truth be told, I don’t think it smells like the bathroom but I think it might be a smell that comes from one of the ingredients. Certainly, the orange scent it at the forefront. Since she refused to use the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm, I put it on and I didn’t notice THAT smell on my lips and neither did she. Could it be from the packaging? I have no idea but it was enough to put her off using it.
At the time of this post, I’ve now been using the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm for about a week and so far, so good. It glides on easily and leaves a light coating on my lips that isn’t cumbersome or intrusive. Orange continues to be the primary scent and that’s all I can smell. If I smell the chapstick tube I can still smell that ‘other’ smell but thankfully it doesn’t transfer on to my lips. Certainly no one else has mentioned it!
Would I buy the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm again? I’m not sure. After all, I only picked it up because it was free with the Green Beaver Zesty Orange toothpaste. If my big kid liked it, I would probably buy it again because I do like the choice of ingredients and it certainly has kept my lips smooth and moist.
End result of this product review for the Green Beaver Zesty Orange lip balm? Hm..I’m undecided but if you can get your hands on a free sample, go for it! It’s definitely better than the typical drugstore chapstick!
