Beauty Test Drive: Yes To Coconut Naturally Smooth Lip Balm & Cooling Lip Oil

Beauty Test Drive: Yes To Coconut Lip Balm And Cooling Oil

I loooove the smell of coconuts. Just a whiff takes me back to the beach where sunscreen and pina coladas are plentiful. So when I heard that Yes To launched a line of Yes To Coconut products, I couldn’t wait to try their lip balm and lip oil that would (hopefully) leave me tasting coconut flavors all the live long day.

My life has been one long epic quest for the perfect lip balm. These are my stringent requirements:

  • goopy but not sticky or waxy
  • tastes good
  • packaging which is both pretty and sturdy (I drop makeup like it’s my job)
  • most importantly, nourishes my chronically dry lips

EOS lip balms are always in my purse for on-the-go applications when I don’t want to stick my dirty fingers in a pot of lip balm. (Bacteria! Hello.) But at home, when I can wash my hands and apply thick coats of goopy lip balm with abandon, my new favorites are Mor Lip Macarons. Read on to find out why:

Pucker Up: The Best Lip Treatments And Balms At Every Price

Is this winter weather killing your lips? Because it’s seriously killing my lips. Last night, as I tried to catch up on “Downton Abbey” I got super distracted by how cracked my lips were and had to pause and find my balm (it had slipped under the bed). Don’t do what I did though — have a good balm at the ready. We’ve got ten super rich, moisturizing options, at virtually every price point. Check ‘em out! Keep reading »

My lips are crazy chapped this time of year. Eh, who am I kidding — I’m in the throes of a lifelong battle against cracked, peeling lips, which is probably the least sexy thing in all of the world. Not that sexy is one of my foremost concerns, given that I have eschewed men for the new year. But should I decide to reestablish myself in the dating world, like, ever, make no mistake: I will be armed to the teeth with Suvana Beauty’s Certified Organic Paw Paw & Honey Balm. Most leading lip balms are full of deceptive, sometimes toxic ingredients that actually harm skin (the body’s largest organ, you guys!) in the long run, but because this 100% natural version contains no petroleum, mineral oil, or synthetic chemicals, it’s perfect for those “holy shit what am I putting on my body” moments. Yes, it’s slightly more expensive than a stick of cherry Chapstick (plus, come on, way cuter), but it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind. And mouth. [$14, Beautyhabit]

I am very possibly a lip beauty product hoarder. Alas, that is not what we are here to discuss.

I’d long admired the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain at my local pharmacy, but I never felt justified in forking over $8 for yet another lip product. Then last weekend I lost my nerve and finally bought the shade Lovesick, a vibrant-but-not-clownish hot pink. Keep reading »

Solve Chapped Lips Like A Surf Pro

Cookie Lip Balm
ZOMG, there is Girl Scout Cookie-flavored lip balm! Read More »

I tried surfing once. It didn’t end so well — I lost the surf board and almost slammed up against a bunch of rocks. Still, there’s something totally dreamy about surf culture — and especially surfer girls, who are totally badass, and strong and basically live in the ocean. And that’s why I’m really excited about Sun Bum’s line of lip balms. Packed with SPF 30 sunscreen, they protect as well as soothe, and come in a crazy delicious array of flavors, including mango, pink guava, pomegranate, coconut, key lime and their original banana (I’ve got banana on right now, and it’s making me hooooongry). Try it — it’s certainly a lot easier than getting on a surfboard. [$3.99, Sun Bum]

I think I’ve mentioned my love for Revlon Lip Butters a few times now, most recently in the context of my summer makeup routine, but I thought it was time to make things official and ask Lip Butter to marry me write up a full Beauty Test Drive. This awesome lip balm/lipstick hybrid is the bestselling lip color of the year, and I’ve contributed to its success by buying three shades (so far) and recommending it to many of my friends, especially the ones who are hesitant about lipstick. Want to know why? Get the scoop, after the jump… Keep reading »

Happy Easter! Here Are 11 Of The World’s Weirdest Lip Balms

Do you have a chapstick problem? Do you slather on the stuff approximately once every four minutes and compulsively use it until there is nothing (nothing!) left in the tube? We know the feeling. We’re all for cherry, pomegranate, and watermelon, but we’re so over fruity balms. We want something different. And now there’s proof that there is a god: Just in time for Easter, Peeps lip balm! Because your mouth should always taste like Easter candy. The perfect Easter basket stuffer. Click through to see more of the world’s most unusual lip balms. [$5.99 Amazon]

Girl Scout Cookies On Your Lips

God love Girl Scout Cookies, but they’re sadly only available a few months out of the year. If you don’t stock up, or just have no self-control, then your GS cookie intake is pretty limited. To satiate Thin Mint fans year round, Girls Scouts have partnered with Lip Smacker to make a series of cookie-flavored lip balms. The balms come in Chocolate Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter, Thin Mints, Trefoils and Coconut Caramel Stripes (which used to be called Samoas, ahem). Delicious, you say? Yes. But oh, such a tease. (Currently available in stores at Walmart and Claire’s Boutique.)

The sexiest thing about me? My extremely chapped lips. I realize most people have to combat this condition once the temperature drops and brisk winds are in the air, but my lips are unique in that they have no regard for the climate. Through both bitter chills and balmy 100+ degree days, my lips are intent on cracking, peeling, occasionally bleeding, and generally trying to make a run from my face. Granted, I tend to exacerbate it by licking and picking at the issue, not to mention applying unfit products that are bound to dehydrate my pucker (red lipstick, why must you be so drying?!?!). As a result, I’ve tried just about every lip balm on the market that claims to repair the situation and leave your lips feeling silky smooth. But, more often than not, they fail me. I’ve found a few winners along the way but nothing that stands out as my healing holy grail. I have hyper-sensitive skin that blooms rashes if you look at it wrong, and my lips are no different. Some of the most popular and highly recommended formulas have left me red and itchy for days.

That’s why I was more than a little  excited when a Bar and Balm Bag from Pleasant River Soap Co. landed on my desk… Keep reading »
