Hydrame Lipz, A Great Organic Lip Balm

I love, love, love lip balm! I’m also picky, picky picky, about it! For me, the perfect balm is petrolatum free, on the thicker side, and packs moisture with multiple oils. Add SPF, and I’m in heaven.

Hydrame Lipz Lip Balm Organic

One that comes close to this is the Hydrame Lipz balm. All it lacks is SPF. This organic balm contains aloe butter, soybean oil, yellow beeswax, calendula, pharmacopeia arnica extract, golden jojoba oil, and natural tocopherols vitamin E.The balm sticks around well, thanks to the beeswax, and the aloe and oil keeps everything comfy and soft. At under $5, the price is quite nice too.

The balm is unscented and unflavored. Hydrame balm can be bought online, or take a look at their list of retail locations

New Belgium Brewing Company Lip Balm

New Belgium Brewing Company Lip Balm How I missed this I’ll never know! First, a bit of back story:

I love beer. Seriously, I LOVE BEER! I am a member of the beer of the month club (thanks Mom!). I also help manage the Waymarking.com Brewpub Category (I initially created it in the beta days). I would homebrew, except I worry that all the beer consumption would make me fat.  I even have a domain registered for a beer blog, but haven’t found the time to get it rolling. Then there is the fact that my husband and I have  personal Mmm Beer Bottle Opener Geocoins. You get the picture…

It also really love Ft Collin’s Colorado, which is the home of the New Belgium Brewing Company and my favorite (on tap, I don’t care for it much in the bottle) American Wheat Beer, Sunshine Wheat. I have been on multiple camping trips, traveling from Nebraska (I am now in Illinois) to North Park Colorado, where I detoured and stopped in Ft Collins just to pick up growlers for the trip.

So imagine my surprise….. No, actually imagine my shock, when I learned that the New Belgium Brewing Company makes a lip balm! My two addictions have come together! It sounds decent enough as well. Here are the ingredients:

SPF 15 – Active Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%). Oxybenzone (3%). Other Ingredients: Organic Soybean Oil, Candelilla Wax, Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Extract, Comfrey, Calendula, St. John’s Wort

OK, so there isn’t beer in it (the addition of St John’s Wort is a bit interesting though), and as far as I know it isn’t beer flavored (I haven’t tried it yet). I also admit that if it did taste like beer that would likely be a bit (OK a lot) weird.

I kind wish they would make it taste like beer anyway…… Which leads to this:

Stay tuned for more on beer lip balms next week!
