Money well spent -- Hurraw Lip Balm

Hurraw has been bumped to one of my top lippies lately. I really enjoy them.  The texture is just right and they have a lot of different selection to choose from.  Though I would like a "plain" one, with no flavors at all.

The Moon balm has been a favorite for quite some time by now.  And Black Cherry has became my now.  It is tinted, but didn't give much color to my lips.  Just ever so slightly.  But I like it.

Description for my new love:

In July, ripe, delicious black cherries grace us with their sweet juicy presence straight from the east side orchards of Montana's Flathead Lake.
It's so fun (hard work!) to stop by a gorgeous Flathead orchard and hand pick these ruby gems.

An infusion of wildcrafted Pakistani alkanet root gives our black cherry balm a deep red sheer tint (a few smidges darker than our cinnamon balm).
All natural organic black cherry flavor makes it... tart and yum!

*The tint of the Black Cherry Balm can vary in color due to the Alkanet root we infuse our almond oil with. Although we craft each batch with precision and aim
to make every balm the "same", please know that our plant infusion strengths will vary based on seasonal growing fluctuations & is somewhat expected when using
100% natural ingredients.

Ingredients: Alkanna tinctoria (alkanet) infused Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, ‡Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, *Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, *Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil,
*Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, *Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, organic flavors, Tocopherols (sunflower)

*organic & cold pressed ‡wildcrafted

Apart from the texture (very important to me), I like the variety and the good ingredients.  I also have vanilla, earl grey, sun balm, coffee and chocolate in my possession.  I am slowing trying all of them.

I really do enjoy them.  So give them a try if you are a lippie addict like me.  You can also buy them from iherb if I am not mistaken.  Because you need to buy a minimum of 3 at their website.
