Peanut butter and jelly. Cookies and milk. Some things just go together, winter and chapped lips being another classic pair that can be added to the list. Instead of reaching for a tube of the iconic (and petroleum-laden) Cherry Chapstick we all wore in middle school, soothe your lips naturally with one of these eco-friendly picks.
-Lip balm by Pangea Organics is rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids in a range of sophisticated scents like Pyranees lavender with cardamom and Egyptian fennel with grapefruit and sweet orange. Fellow KIWI blogger Stephanie loves Italian red mandarin with rose.
-Available in tins (for which I can personally vouch last forever), organic Badger Balm does double-duty by working in dry skin, too.
-A popular favorite, Burt’s Bees offers lip balms that heal and moisturize. I love the warm clove scent of their medicated variety, as well as the subtle pink tint left by a swipe of the replenishing balm.
