The Handmade Soap Co. Lip Balm

This week I was lucky enough to be sent a gorgeous lip balm from the Handmade Soap Company. I was relatively unfamiliar with this brand, I had never really noticed their products in stores, and the only knowledge I had of them was from fellow bloggers, who lapped up their praises. I did a bit of research and was astounded to see this brand were an Irish company, a new one at that, whose unique selling point was that all their products are handmade, using 100% natural ingredients. I had never tried an Irish product like this, and so, I was delighted to be offered the chance to review one of their delicious lip balms.

I received the Orange and Calendula lipbalm, and I am so happy I did, because it is the tastiest, most gorgeous scented lip balm I have ever used! I also had no idea what Calendula was, I kept pronouncing it Candelula :) I have since been informed that it is a herbacious plant, part of the daisy family, which actually has anti-inflammatory properties. Win win so far!

Now I have used lipbalms; Vaseline, Chapstick, Blistex, Carmex, you name it, and have never really been truly satisfied. My lips tend to get dry quite easily, which is a pain, because even when they don't seem dry, nearly all lipstick either seems to make them dry, or make them look flaky and dry. So annoying right. Enter Handmade Soap Company!

This product is glorious. It moisturises and repairs, while leaving lips glossy and shiny, and smelling divine. This product contains beeswax, which has a long shelf life and seals in hydration, as it is impervious to water. It also contains shea butter and jojoba oil, which nourish, condition and soften lips. The Calendula and Orange essential oils add a gorgeous floral and citrusy note to the balm.

I have been using this product non-stop for the past week and have noticed visible results. I also haven't made a dent in it, which means it's going to last a looong time! Overall, I am very happy with this product. The Handmade Soap Co. lipbalms also come in Choco-Mint and Au Natural with Rosehip Oil flavours and retail at €4.50, which matches Burt's Bees Beeswax Lipbalm.

  5. I have the other one, it's unscented (my one is anyway, not sure if it's meant to be!!) but has rose something or other. Completely unimpressed with it. It left my lips even drier. Dono what the hell is going on! I want to smell this one though!
