My husband and I spend many hours a week on the golf course, and where we play it tends to be windy, sometimes very windy. When I am exposed to both the elements of the sun and wind, it can start to take a toll on my lips.
Aubrey Organics has long been a company I turn to for all natural, non-toxic personal care products, and I just recently learned about their Treat ‘Em Right Lip Balm.
Aubrey Organics Treat ‘Em Right Lip Balm comes in your typical cylinder shaped plastic package, which rolls up from the bottom. It says it is USDA Organic, contains 0.15 ounces of lip balm, and has a safety seal to assure you the tube has not been tampered with.
Over the years I have used a lot of lip balms, Burts Bees being another of my favorite brands, but the Burts Bees mint flavored balms just don’t feel right on my lips, they are too tingly. The Aubrey Organics Treat ‘Em Right Lip Balm comes in spearmint flavor, and I find this very refreshing and only very slightly tingly. I love mint, and now I can enjoy a minty lip balm!
Just take a look at these ingredients! Organic beeswax, organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, organic jojoba) seed oil, organic hemp) seed oil, organic spearmint leaf oil, organic Rosa Mosqueta® seed oil, and vitamin E.
You can’t get more natural than that! Beeswax provides an excellent, natural base for this lip balm, and the other ingredients are not only organic, but they are good for the lips! According to Aubrey Organics, Organic Rosa Mosqueta® Oil is high in vitamin C and other nutrients to not only moisturize the lips, but it also has antioxidant properties to help fight the free radicals so prevalent in our environment today. The other oils are meant to soften and condition the lips as well as maintain a healthy balance of moisture.
Aubrey Organics Treat ‘Em Right Spearmint Lip Balm is almost colorless, but does have the slight tan shade to it, the color of beeswax if you have ever seen this in the raw. I feel good knowing that this lip balm does not contain any harmful chemicals that I try so hard to avoid! It glides across the lips so smoothly, making them feel absolutely wonderfully moisturized and healthy!
The only drawback is that Aubrey Organics products have never been sold in any health food store in my area, so they do need to be ordered directly from the Aubrey Organics website, or any other online site, and there are several that carry these products. Since shipping is a factor, I like to wait until there are several things that I need before placing an order.
The lip balm itself retails for only $2.95, but shipping to Alaska for this one product is unbelievably high, $13.12 to be exact, because they only ship to Alaska via FedEx. This lip balm can be purchased via other websites for significantly less shipping, since they are willing to ship USPS Priority to Alaska.
To conclude, if you are looking for a truly organic, all natural lip balm with great spearmint taste and smell, you can’t do better than Aubrey Organics Treat ‘Em Right. The only drawback is that it does not contain any sunscreen, and I don’t know if there are any natural ingredients for sunscreen, so this may be why it does not have SPF protection.
