Avoiding Chapped Lips with MyLipStuff

Remember how I talked about the importance of hydration and the awesomeness that is the invention of LVL?

Well, warding off/avoiding chapped lips can also be partially fended off by awesome chapstick!

I’m probably not going to need lip balm again for the rest of my life. :O …although truth be told, I’ve never made it to the very end of a single tube of chapstick because I always lose it before then. Maybe this time…

my lip stuff

Yay for lip balm! :D! + tis the season for hot beverages so I made myself my own coaster for my mugs of hot tea! I haven’t sanded it down or finished the wood yet but the pyrography part is done!

MyLipStuff‘s mission is to “end the suffering of people with chapped lips all across the land” and Brea strives to end animal testing and save the environment with chemical-free natural products. She also tries to use recycled and recyclable materials whenever possible.

There’s even a line of “Charitabalms” where 50% of the proceeds go to companies against animal cruelty that she’s partnered up with!

All of this appeals to my granola-girl tendencies, and I like supporting smaller (vs. corporations) businesses, but although I’ve known of MyLipStuff for about 9 years now, I never placed an order until April of 2014.

Why is this, you ask? Because I’m one frugal son-of-a-gun. They’re really not even very expensive,  but I talked myself out of it every time (“Do you really need this to live, Farrah?”)

I’ve been on Brea’s mailing list since 2007, and there was an Earth Day sale a couple years back that I finally decided to take advantage of. It definitely didn’t hurt that she has an entire list of stackable coupons/discounts.

For $49 ($9 of which goes to charity), I got two reusable foldable tote bags and 26 lip balms! I’m all set on mini-gifts for the future! :O

Breakdown of the flavors I got are listed below (she has > 600 options). If you can’t tell, I really like smelling like a fruit. I keep one in every white coat/jacket pocket and bag I have on me. 😛

  • Passionfruit-Orange-Guava (self-explanatory) – You already know I love POG from this recipe
  • Peach-Mango (self-explanatory)
  • Fruit Cocktail (Apples, Grapes, Oranges, Strawberries)
  • Tropical Fun (Mangos, Kiwis & Passionfruit)
  • Mango Raspberry Shake (self-explanatory)
  • Ginger Peach (A tasty blend of fresh peaches with a touch of ginger spice.)
  • Fuzzy Navel (Orange, Peach & Rum)
  • White Russian (Kahlua, Vodka & Cream)
  • Midori (Rum & Melons [Honey, Cantaloupe, Watermelon])
  • Honey Roasted Fruit (Honey Roasted Pear, Apple & Apricot)
  • Satsuma (Pineapple, Orange, Guava)
  • Honeysuckle Nectarine (Sweet honeysuckle mixed with tart nectarines.)
  • Pineapple Mango (self-explanatory)
  • Cat Pee (Pink Grapefruit, Orange & Lime)
  • Carrot Cake (Vegan, Charitabalm) – Yay for carrot cake!
  • “Compassionfruit” (Vegan, Charitabalm)
  • Rainbow Sherbet (Vegan, Charitabalm)
  • Green Tea (Vegan, Charitabalm)
In case you wanted to know the ingredients! The vegan ones don't have beeswax in em'!

These are the free ones I received (extensive couponing was involved)!

  • Mixed Mystery #1
  • Mixed Mystery #2
  • Mixed Mystery #3
  • Horchata (Easter limited edition)
  • Lump of Coal (cinnamon roll flavor; holiday edition)
  • Acai Berry (Earth Day special)

Orders over $25 ship free and there are “sample” orders available if you want to buy just 1-2 and don’t want to have to pay a ton for shipping. I received my order in 3 business days. :]

I’m somewhat curious about these, but it’ll probably be a decade before I get to order em’ because it’s now about 1.5 years later and I’m still working through them! :O

  • Yoga (Lime, tea tree, orange & ginger)
  • Zombie (Pineapple, orange, lime, sugar, rum)
  • Orange Creamsicle
  • Apple Raspberry

P.S. This is not a sponsored post. I just figured that since it was getting close to the holiday season, this would be an awesome option for stocking stuffers or mini-gifts for others! 😀

  • Have you ever finished an entire tube of lip balm before losing it? Teach me your ways!
  • What would your favorite flavor be?

    Hahahaha good one Farrah, I don’t think I’ve made it through an entire chapstick either, those things are easy to lose. I love the name of this product, super simple and cute “ My lip stuff” 🙂

    1. Farrah

      haha, isn’t it difficult?! I feel like people who actually manage to finish em’ out must be magical. 😛

      I thought so too! <3 I love all the different options!

    Um. I think you convinced me. I live in Colorado and we seriously by Chap stick by the case! Its serious business. I am going to pin this so I can give it a try! Thanks!

    1. Farrah

      hehehe, yay! Let me know how you like em’! I love all the options and that they’re made with cruelty-free + natural ingredients! If there were an SPF option, they’d be absolutely perfect in my book! 😛

    Can’t wait to try! I am currently addicted to Burts Bees…it’s just the besttttt.

    1. Farrah

      Yay for Burt’s Bees! I like em’ too, but I’m probably all set on lip balms for the next several years! 😛

    Oooh these lip balms look good.

    I totally feel like I never make it through a lip balm because I have SO MANY that using the same one over and over seems silly, haha!

      hahaha, me too! But someday, I think I may be able to make it through one! (Maybe starting with the one on my nightstand that I apply before bed every night…baby steps!??!)
