Hi beauties! I'm back with another review today. Although the weather is getting warmer, lip balms are something that is important to me all year round. I've been trying out Epic Blend's lip balms recently and I have to say they are pretty good lip balms. Personally, I like how they use natural ingredients, how moisturizing they are and how they come in many different flavours (some that I haven't even seen produced by other companies). Peach is definitely my favourite flavour!
Epic Blend is a Canadian company located in British Columbia (gotta love Canadian brands!). They believe in Petroleum Free lip balms. All their lip balms are gluten free, non-GMO, petroleum free and best of all cruelty free.
Epic Blend's lip balms are divided in 4 categories:
Hemp Collection (8 different flavours)
One of the key ingredient in the Hemp category that differs from the other 3 is Organic Hemp Seed Oil. Hemp Seeds contains oil that is relatively rich in essential fatty acids. When used in cosmetic or skin care products, Hemp Seed Oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, helps heal skin lesion, has antioxidants, prevents tissue damage, offers some protection against UV sun exposure and contains moisture balancing properties.1 And we surely need UV protection on our lips all year round!
Vegan Collection (4 different flavours)
The key ingredients in the this category that differs from the other 3 are Organic Cocoa Butter and Organic Candelilla Wax. Organic Cocoa Butter is anti-aging, reduces inflammation and has antioxidant.2 As for Organic Candelilla Wax, it is a natural moisturizer and its natural emulsifier creates a smooth texture for the lip balms.3
More Moisture Collection (4 different flavours)
For this category, the lip balms are made with 7 moisturizers including Organic Shea Butter making this set of lip balms extra moisturizing (as stated in its category name). With the extra amount of moisturizers added into this set of lip balms, the moisturization definitely lasts longer and it's the perfect set for winter!
Tinted Balm (1 flavour & 1 shade)
This lip balm provides a sheer merlot colour and a subtle shimmer that keeps a natural look. It only comes in the flavour, pomegranate. Other than the colour, its ingredients are very similar to the other lip balms. I personally haven't tried this one out, so if any of you have tried it - definitely leave me a comment below and let me know how you like it!
And if you haven't tried them before, which flavour would you like to try?
Thank you so much for reading! Have and amazing day!
