Sometimes finding good xgfx lip balm can be a little tricksy. Everything’s got beeswax, or it’s tested on animals, or it’s full of funky ingredients. I have even heard tell of lip balm containing wheat-germ oil. Well, I received some samples from Crazy Rumors the other day that are vegan, not tested on animals, all natural, contain lots of organic ingredients, and just so happen to be xgfx.
The samples I got were Peppermint Lemongrass, Orange Creamsicle, and their HibisKiss lip color in coral. All of their products are flavored, so if you’re looking for a Plain Jane, you’re out of luck. They also contain a little stevia, so they’re slightly sweet. After using them for a couple weeks, I‘m hooked. They glide on silky smooth, and my lips are feeling pampered and soft. They really do taste good, and they smell good too. The coral HibisKiss has a pretty color, but if I apply it too heavily it feels like there’s a dried oily residue on my lips. Use it sparingly though, and this isn‘t an issue. My favorite of the bunch is the Peppermint Lemongrass. It tastes good and leaves your lips all tingly.
You can order directly from their site www.crazyrumors.com and there are a lot more flavors to choose from (coffee and chocolate looks really good). The lip balms are $3.49 and the lip colors are $4.99.
