Epic Blend | Lip Balms Without Scary Ingredients!

I am so proud that my new FAVOURITE lip balms come from my home province of British Columbia! Epic Blend began in 2007 in Kelowna, BC with the goal of designing a high quality, premium lip balm that had both spunk and all-natural ingredients. All ingredients are petroleum and gluten-free, non-genetically modified and of course not tested on animals!

I am a total lip balm junkie with a lip balm in every location of the apartment and one even right in the shower so that I can have my lips moisturized right away! I am almost tingling with excitement to get to the end of this review because all I can say is that these are DA BOMB!

There are three formulas of Epic Blend Lip Balms: More Moisture, Vegan and Hemp.

More Moisture includes seven moisturizers that come together to provide an extra kick of moisture plus a boost of staying power. The mighty seven are: organic sunflower seed oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, organic castor seed oil, organic shea butter and vitamin E.

The best part is that I literally read these ingredients off in that order directly from the label. There is honestly nothing scary in that list and I definitely feel safe using this is often as I have been! I have been using Green Apple like nobody’s business!

Vegan is 100% plant-based and beeswax-free, but uses all-natural food grade Candelilla wax, which comes from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub native to northern Mexico and the southern United States. Out of these two flavours I have really been loving Pineapple Mint!

Hemp contains organic hemp seed oil that acts as an anti-oxidant and is quick to absorb into the skin. The flavours in the hemp line were my favourite with Citrus Kick leading the way! It also has a funny message on the tube as shown above Smile.

As if all of those flavour choices weren’t enough, there are also two limited edition flavours in the hemp line in the delicious form of Banana and Chocolate Rum! Chocolate Rum is amazing!

Results/Discussion: I LOVE these lip balms and can never decide which flavour to use because they are all so comfortable to wear, smell like what they’re supposed to smell like and are not waxy like some lip balms can be. I have used organic lip balms before and most have either been REALLY hard especially if beeswax is the only wax present or gritty. Epic Blend lip balms are SO BUTTERY SMOOTH that you will find yourself applying them just to feel something THAT smooth on your lips!

Epic Blend lip balms can be found at a number of different retailers and retail for $3.49 each. Epic Blend also offers FREE STANDARD SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS OVER $15 which is a great deal if you ask me since you KNOW you’re going to have to have all the flavours!
