Love those lips.
Eco Lips organic lip balm ($1.79 to $2.49) is also petroleum free and uses 70 percent certified organic ingredients, such as beeswax, calendula, jojoba oil and peppermint oil. Organic ingredients have a higher nutrient content, which means extra love for your sensitive kisser. SPF 15 and 30 formulas offer further defense against the elements. And, for those of you who can't keep track of your lip balm, Eco Lips offers the Eco Clip to attach to your bag or belt loop. To encourage recycling, Eco Lips offers a free Eco Lip product for every five empty containers returned to the company.
We kiss our lip balm every day, and so why not celebrate this relationship with (affectionately named) Pookie lip products? Pookie offers a range of lip balms ($6 to $9), including the flagship "Apookalips" and tinted "ColorBalms," all made with natural ingredients, including vitamin-rich almond oil and UV-shielding shea butter. "Pookie Lips Sport" is aromatherapy and lip balm all in one; lime, lemon, avocado, almond and apricot oils make the scent as healing to the spirit as the balm is to the lips. Pookie's packaging is 100 percent recyclable, and the company will specially wrap and customize its products to use as party favors.
