Hola! As I promised, I’ll write a review. And this is a review about my latest favourite lipbalm. It’s tinted! It’s in Black Cherry! It’s not sticky! The brand called..HURRAW!
So, my first impression about this lip balm is…it doesn’t bring beeswax with it. Usually, lip balms contain beeswax. Somehow, beeswax makes the balm heavy + a bit sticky. At least, for me. :) But the best point is, it’s truly vegan.
Stolen from the website:
In July, ripe, delicious black cherries grace us with their sweet juicy presence straight from the east side orchards of Montana’s Flathead Lake.
A deep wildcrafted alkanet infusion gives our black cherry balm a deep red sheer tint (a smidge darker than our cinnamon balm).
An all natural organic black cherry flavor makes it… tart and yum!
*The tint of the Black Cherry Balm can vary in color due to the Alkanet root we infuse our almond oil with. Although we craft each batch with precision and aim
to make every balm the “same”, please know that our plant infusion strengths will vary based on seasonal growing fluctuations & is somewhat expected when using
100% natural ingredients.
Ingredients: ***Alkanna tinctoria (alkanet root) infused *Prunus dulcis (sweet almond) oil; ***Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax; **Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil,
*Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, **Theobroma cacao (cocoa) butter, *Ricinus communis (castor) oil, *Olea europaea (olive) oil, organic black cherry flavor; Tocopherols (vitamin e)
*cold pressed / organic **raw & organic ***wildcrafted
See? The (ingredients) list is very simple. :D You can check the website yourself to see other variants.
Okay, now, I’m telling how much I love this lip balm. As I mentioned, it’s tinted. You can see the swatch on picture. :) I even applied two layers on the girl’s lips to make it real. Hahahahaha! Before, it was more peach-pink a bit pale there, but after Hurraw!-ed, it became more red. Very sheer, but it’s real.
The balm gives all I want to get from a lip balm. Almost all. :P
Moisturizing? Yes. Even better than another that I’ve tried. I can really feel my lips smoother and moisturized immediately after application.
Staying power? Well, this factor is too random. It could stay longer, but you shouldn’t eat or drink too often. :D If I only use the balm without drinking water at home, yes, it may stick on my lips for many hours. And sometimes I also lick my lips without any purpose—just a habit. Though, thanks to its all-natural ingredients so I won’t swallow any toxic if I accidentally lick this balm.
Tint? On my lips, it gives natural orange-pink-red-ish tone. Very sheer and a little glossy. Good, actually, but I’m not a gloss-lover, so I make every application very careful too avoid over-glossy look. :D Anyway, it’s useful when my lips are pale due to dehydration or AC effect. I can make it more coloured without being too made up like wearing lipstick.
Packaging? Awesome. Extremely cute with ovale-head-shape (yes, ovale) and slim figure, just like a bubble gum thingy. I can plung it into my pencil case and bring it everywhere!
Price? 3.79 US $, and not available in Indonesia. Should be bought online. Thank you, Lynn, to let me buy this product with your help! :*
Just that? No, no, I haven’t tell you the scent? It’s very cherry. Natural cherry from real cherries. Love it so. :3
That’s all! :D If you want to try one, go buy it…online. :) But it’s worth to try. FYI, Hurraw is a US brand.
Thank you! Save the Earth! ;D
