Natural Chica’s Crítica:
With my discovery of how ingredients like petrolatum and mineral oil clog your pores (yet they are commonly used in hair care products!), I started taking a closer look at my other beauty products. That’s when I realized a lot of my lip products had the same ingredients I was trying to avoid in my hair care products. I’ve got to say that this is by far one of the best lip balms I’ve ever tried! The ingredients are ALL NATURAL and your lips definitely reap the benefits! My lips feel moisturized…not just a thick glossy coating that simply masks any dry, chapped lips. I’ve also found that I don’t have to apply the balm maybe but 2 or 3 times throughout the day (and I’m an excessive lip balm applier! Lol). I also love the scent and light tint that the pomegranate oil provides. Plus, an all-natural lip balm for $3 ??...Definitely a keeper for me!
