Update & Hurraw! lip balms - Black Cherry, Chocolate, Grapefruit, Green Tea & Orange

Can't believe it's been so long since my last post! Have been seriously busy for the past few months, but now I can relax a little and post some reviews in the mornings when I have some time.

Before I start with my first review of the year, I'd like to pay my respects to the victims of the recent disaster in Japan. I was saddened and shocked by the terrible news and wish this beautiful country the best on its way to recovery.

In January I welcomed a new addition to the family:

This is Cookie 6 month old Netherland Dwarf. He's now fully grown but compared to my other 2 bunnies he is tiny!

Now for the product review... Recently I stumbled upon an online store, Super Smoocher which sells only natural lip products with free delivery within the UK. As I love all natural and lip products, I simply had to check it out. My packages arrived quickly and were well packed in pink paper with heart shaped confetti, which was a nice touch.

I settled on some Hurraw! lip balms as I liked their oval shaped tubes, makes a nice change from the run of the mill tubes of lip balm. Hurraw balms use 100% natural ingredients, and come in a variety of 16 flavors. 

I love Hurraw balms because none of the flavors smell synthetic, but very fresh & natural. They are most probably the best lip balms I have used, which is saying a lot since I've tried many! The lip balms are very smooth in texture, super moisturizing, glide on effortlessly, and give my lips a slight gloss. They don't feel heavy or like a mask on the lips either. At £3.45 each they're great value for money too.

The flavors I own are:

Black Cherry - One of two tinted balms, the other one is Cinnamon but I've never liked cinnamon so I passed on it. This smells like real cherries (yum!) Gives the lips a sheer wash of colour, great for everyday use and my overall favorite. Swatch below.

Chocolate - Smells delicious and makes me a little hungry! However it's a little on the strong side for my liking.

Grapefruit - It's light pink in colour but comes out clear. If only this had a pink tint to it, it would be my favorite Hurraw balm.

Green Tea - I chose this because I love matcha and was hoping for a similar smell, but this is a little lighter. It's not a bad scent but I don't think I'll buy this one again.

Orange - Just what it says. I use this before I go to bed to keep my lips soft and smooth.

Now I've discovered Hurraw balms I really don't know what I'd do without them, and I make sure to always have a tube nearby. These balms have a higher melting point than other handmade lip balms (from Etsy) I've tried, meaning they won't melt or go gloopy on a hot day. I think I'm going to try the Mint & Lemon flavors next, possibly Vanilla Bean too!
