Grape lip balm

Captain's Log, Stardate 11.10.2009

I’m continuing my Etsy.com raving today with another product I bought, grape lip balm from Pacific Paradise Soap.

For one, this stuff tastes yummy!

For another, look at this ingredient list:
Grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, candelilla wax, cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, concentrated Vitamin E, grape flavoring, Stevia.

I can pronounce everything on that list! I know what most of it is!

I’m pretty picky about my lip balms because I have a violent allergic reaction to most commercial lip balms (Burt’s Bees, Chapstick, you name it). There’s some ingredient in there that makes my lip swell like Angelina Jolie got stung by a few bees on her mouth. I have to get lip balms that are all natural or else it doesn’t look pretty, trust me.

So I was thrilled to find this, plus it tastes great! (I mean, I don’t literally eat it, but it smells good on my lip.)

Oh, and I got a free soap sample in my package! Isn’t that cool?

Sigh. I love Etsy.


  1. I don't wear much lipstick, and I try to go natural when I do... It can be hard these days. I thought Burts Bees was one of the better ones.

    In any case, I knew I read somewhere that we do eat our lipstick and I found an article that said the average woman eats about 6 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime (yuck).


    So - going all natural is a very good thing. :o)

  2. Yeah, I thought Burt's Bees would be okay, but then my lip bloated up like my husband socked me one. :)
