Is it just me or is it still winter? Let me look out the window…

Yep, the white stuff is still on the ground and my winter coat is still hanging in the hallway. While I may like winter, there is no denying how my skin feels. My skin is dry and my lips have seen better days. You know, I’m not a big fan of lipstick and I’m not keen on weird chapstick made with funny odd chemical based ingredients so I’m always on the lookout for a more natural chapstick or lip balm.

Check out the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm. I noticed it at my local health food store and the price was reasonable. Let’s see how well it works.


Product Review: What ingredients are in the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm?

 
Have a look at the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm and these are the ingredients you’ll see on it: beeswax, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, lanolin, tocopherol (vitamin e), natural vanilla flavor, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter [tree nut]), theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter.

Hm..not a bad list of ingredients. Beeswax comes first followed by sunflower seed oil and coconut oil. I recognize all the other ingredients so we’re off to a good start.


Product Test: How was the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm?

This wintry weather seems like the best time to test out the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm. I mean, in this kind of weather, you’ll need to keep your lips nice and moisturized because chapped lips equals bloody lips and that is no fun (especially when you factor in how much they’ll hurt!).

Both my big kid and I used the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm for well over a week. One of the first things we noticed is that the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm has a pretty solid consistency.

We’ve tried a number of different lip balms over the years and they vary in texture. Some seem very squishy and tend to smush all over your lips when you try to apply them. Others tend to have a more solid feel. The Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm feels pretty solid but still manages to moisturize your lips. It definitely doesn’t mush. To get a good coating on your lips, we sometimes felt like we had to apply it back and forth a few times.

Did the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm work? Well, it certainly seemed to. When we used the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm, our lips did feel moisturized and we weren’t affected by the blistering cold frigid wind. It also had a really nice light sweet vanilla scent that wasn’t too overpowering. When my child first tried on the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm, she said it smelled like a cupcake.


Verdict:

Did we like the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm? Yes and no. I’m not sure why but my big kid isn’t a big fan of this particular lip balm. She uses it reluctantly but it’s not her first go to chapstick. Did the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm work? For all the times we used it, it certainly seemed to do the job of keeping your lips moisturized but if I can’t get my kid to put it on, well then it defeats the purpose a little bit.

Would I use the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm again? Yeah, I’m okay with it. In fact, I may just go and get another flavour to test out just to see what its like. It’s got aloe, shea butter, and vitamin E. Does it make your lips more kissable? THAT, I have no clue. I’d imagine that’s a personal preference, no?

Of all the different chapsticks that I saw at the health food store, the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm has a slighter lower price point so that’s one selling feature and no matter what, it’s still significantly better than some of those bigger brand name chapsticks with nothing but gunk in it. So, if you happen to see the Now Solutions Vanilla Completely Kissable Lip Balm, why not pick it up and give it a try?
