BabyLove here! I don?t know about the rest of you, but my husband and I are addicted to chap stick. I buy the family size packs and keep them in all areas of my house. I know I can always find a stick in the medicine cabinet, on top of the fireplace mantle, on my dresser, and in my makeup bag in the bathroom. Then, of course, there are the ones in my car’s glove compartment, in my pocketbook and jacket pockets, etc. I drink a lot of water, and I’m not entirely sure why (perhaps any medical experts would like to offer their expertise), but my lips are always chapped. It must be a hereditary condition, because both William and Calum’s lips always look a bit dry and cracked. They, however, aren’t as receptive to the taste that comes along with the relief, so you can imagine how pleased I was to find a lip balm just for kids!
For My Kids, carries personal care products and home cleaning solutions that are mostly organic, and made from essential oils and plant based ingredients. Founder, Christine Stewart, developed the line when she was pregnant with her first child. Her goal was to creative, safe products for mom, baby, and the environment. The green products she couldn’t find, she started to make, and sell.
The lip balm that we were sent to review comes in a 1/2 ounce tin with zero frills or distractions. I prefer the tin packaging because it’s an easier shape and size for my hand to recognize when I’m digging around for it in my bag! The kids also like to swirl their finger around in there, and apply it to their own lips. It’s a much less threatening procedure then when I come at them with a smelly stick. I love the fact that there’s nothing harsh about this product. I don’t have to make any promises about how after I apply it the burn will only last a minute before their lips feel better. It’s such a nice silky, smooth feel (yes, I have stolen some for myself) and it smells and tastes fantastic. Made from sweet almond oil, organic coconut oil, candelilla wax, unrefined beeswax*, organic cocoa butter, and organic tamanu oil . The balm comes in vanilla, chocolate, or peppermint flavors, so there’s something for everyone. All three flavors have a vegan option available.
So, if you’re kids are like mine, and suffer from chapped lips, then I suggest you allow them to give this stuff a try. This site has a lot of neat stuff. How about a salve herbal insect repellent that uses catnip instead of DEET? With mosquito season coming up, something safe that protects the kiddos is a must have! Make sure to check back on my reviews, since they also sent us a spray hand sanitizer that I’ll be reviewing, and I am CRAZY about!
