A good lip balm should not taste nice!


Did you know that by wetting lips by licking it will only cause our lips to be more cracked? Well, if you didn't, now you know! 

So, with that info at hand, if a lip balm taste nice, you will tend to lick your lips right? That would be bad! 

Smelling good and tasting good is two very different things. 

It's good if it taste good but doesn't taste good.

Know such a lip balm?

You probably don't!

Well, I've finally found a lip balm that's moisturizing enough, smells SO GOOD but taste really disgusting. You wouldn't wanna lick your lips but your nose will be in heaven.

Have you figured out which brand of lip balms I'm talking about?

Clue: I've posted regarding this before.

Answer: My Lip Stuff Lip Balms!!!!

With over 600+ flavors to feed your addiction and soften your lips.

Here's a copy and pasted info right from mylipstuff.com: 

The mission:
My Lip Stuff's ultimate mission is to end the suffering of people with chapped lips all across the land. In the process, we strive to end animal testing and save the environment with chemical-free natural products!

Is this a tall order? Absolutely. But we are dedicated- and are willing to start small. If we all do our part our combined efforts will make a big impact on the future of the planet, & just maybe we'll find a cure for something-- even if it is just chapped lips! 

My Lip Stuff's products are NEVER tested on animals & contain natural (from the earth) ingredients that are skin loving. Our products do NOT contain any harsh ingredients- and NEVER contain petroleum or mineral oil! We also do what we can by using recycled (and recyclable) materials whenever possible, and even using "green power" (power from renewable resources such as wind, water, or landfill gases-instead of oil). We also Drive a Hybrid, and use only fluorescent lighting (no incandescent bulbs here!). 
In the end, We strive to create a natural product made from only the highest quality ingredients, with the least amount of impact on the environment and its inhabitants, for the lowest possible price. 

The story:
My Lip Stuff began many years ago, back in 1999 as a hobby. My name is Brea, I'm the creator of My Lip Stuff (feel free to call me the lip balm goddess, lippy lord, or your royal Breaness works too). I decided to make my own lip balms after watching an episode of Martha Stewart about hand made lotions and toiletries. Being a Vegan, I knew 'natural' was the product for me, so I began to research natural butters and oils to find the perfect ingredients for the perfect lip balm. After many many many many many (did I say many?) recipes, I finally came up with a recipe that I fell in love with and "My Lip Stuff" was born. It started with just personal use (a lip balm addict from birth with a nasty tube a week (at least) habit), and eventually moved onto Birthday and Christmas gifts. By 2000, friends and family were loving "My Lip Stuff" and it was turning into a mini word of mouth business. 
In 2001, I was in the beginning of a very difficult 'bed rest only' pregnancy and was unable to work (I was formerly a foreign and english languages teacher). As I lay there, I thought about developing My Lip Stuff into more than just a small business with only lip products, and into a full fledged business with many different bath and body products. In June of 2001, the unexpected happened, and I became VERY ill. The doctors had no choice but to deliver the baby by emergency c-section. So after only 5 months of pregnancy, I gave birth to a 1 pound 1 ounce premature little boy. 4 long months in the hospital by my sons side gave me A LOT of time to develop My Lip Stuff into My Lip Stuff & Other Stuff! I quickly realized that life would never be the same, and that working a "normal" 9-5 job like most people do, would be impossible for this single parent with a special needs child. My Lip Stuff needed to be developed into a fully functional business and online store to support myself and my disabled child, so the My Lip Stuff & Other Stuff online store was offically open for business!
Fast forward another 8+ years and I am still a single parent, working around the clock (seriously, who needs sleep!) to bring you My Lip Stuff and Other Stuff. I also find the time to homeschool my Autistic/special needs child who is now 8 years old (and who is also addicted to My Lip Stuff!). My Lip Stuff continues to be a thriving online store, with a 1000 sq ft "factory" where the magic happens! Our mission is still the same: to create products that are skin, earth, and animal friendly. We stuck to our roots and still handmake all our products in very small batches to ensure freshness. The end result is plain and simple- My Lip Stuff is serious lip care with a fun flair, for the kid (albeit the responsible kid) in all of us.

MyLipStuff Haul back in July
Recognize the above pic? Yup! I posted this back in July and I've never regretted buying these.

As you know I'm from Malaysia which means most things aren't actually available here. But thank god I found this one site which is a malaysian based site:

yes! I bought my lip balms from this very site I just gave. 

It's priced at RM12 for one lip balm and RM13 for special occasional/festival lip balms, excluding postage of course.

I bought these when it was at a promotional price which was RM6 for one. Good deal right?

I've been using these every single day, ok, I lied.

I do skip some days as I'm a lazy person. 

But trust me, you can say Goodbye to Chapped Lips after applying these lil wonders!
