Epic Blend Lip Balm is a Canadian brand that started in 2007. They make organic and vegan lip balms in a variety of flavors and all are petroleum-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and cruelty-free.
Their balms come in three categories which are:
- Hemp – This includes organic hemp seed oil, which is a great anti-oxidant, as well as organic coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, organic beeswax and non-GMO vitamin E. These come in flavors Vanilla, Mint, Coconut and Citrus Kick.
- More Moisture – This has seven moisturizers including organic Shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, organic castor oil, organic beeswax and non-GMO vitamin E. These come in flavors Unflavored, Grape, Green Apple and Cherry.
- Vegan – These are 100% plant-based and beeswax-free. They use food grade candelilla wax for a smooth texture, as well as organic coconut coil, organic sunflower oil, organic cocoa butter and non-GMO vitamin E. These come in flavors Wild Berry and Pineapple-Mint.
They also have a Tinted Lip Balm in Garnet Star, which is sheer red slightly shimmery shade. They are just $3.49 each or you can buy 4-packs for $12.00 on their site.
What I like about these is that they are smooth and totally not oily feeling. They don’t feel as thick and hydrating as say my beloved Jack Black Lip Balms, but they are really good if you just need a bit of moisture. They are also great for wearing underneath a lipstick that might have a drying formula because they aren’t greasy and don’t change the way the lipstick applies. The flavors are yummy also! My favorites are Coconut, Green Apple, Cherry and Vanilla.
I definitely recommend these to you if you need light moisture, and are looking for organic or vegan ingredients in a balm.
