The best natural lip balms – HURRAW!

the best natural lip balms hurraw


Hurraw! lip balms are the best lip balms I’ve tried. I’ve actually used them for six years. (I counted, and was a bit shocked, I admit. Time flies, but trusted products stay.)

Now that I use these all-natural lip balms, I no longer suffer from dry lips or a lip balm addiction. You know, that vicious cycle where you have the need to constantly reapply your lip balm, because while it feels moisturizing it’s actually drying out your lips. That’s how it makes you addicted to it.

I feel you! So many lip balms have done that to me. I remember my lips being in such a bad shape and the lip balms I used only made them worse. My lips felt horrible, if I forgot to add some lip balm regularly. Many synthetic lip balms contain mineral oil, and I’m pretty sure that’s what made them not work for me.

I first found Hurraw! lip balms, when I decided I wanted to find a natural alternative for my lip balm. Something that would hydrate and protect my lips. Something that I wouldn’t need to reapply every two hours.

With these natural lip balms, I only really need to use them twice per day. I apply them in the evening before going to sleep, and in the morning after brushing my teeth.

(Okay I might add them once or twice during the day, but I don’t get the same feeling of needing to reapply, as I used to.)

Hurraw’s night lip balm called *moon balm is the ultimate lip balm for me and the best one. It’s super nourishing and I let it work its wonders every night. The natural scent of it is very subtle with a hint of chamomile and vanilla. It’s made with cold pressed natural oils such as avocado oil, coconut oil, argan oil and candelilla wax.

If you’ve never used natural lip balms and your lips are in a bad shape – *moon balm is the one I would recommend. Then once your lips are doing better, you can use the other ones for day use too.

For the day, I use different ones. I’ve tried the unscented one, licorice, coconut, vanilla and chai spice. (I guess I’m not that adventurous after all, since I probably could have tried all the scents during these years.) My favorites are *vanilla and *chai spice and those I’ve repurchased multiple times. I feel like all these other lip balms are lighter (than the moon balm) and they suit day use perfectly for me. All of the balms glide onto the lips smoothly and they feel hydrating, light and super comfortable.

In conclusion: I have used these for years, they’re the best and I will continue using them! If you’re looking for a natural, vegan lip balm that keeps your lips nourished and protected – check these out.

Lipstick that lasts with a face mask – Rimmel Provocalips

lipstick that lasts with a face mask



You can totally wear bright lipstick under your mask and not worry about smudging. There are lipsticks that literally do not move, even with the face mask. In this post I’m sharing an affordable option from Rimmel. Every time I wear this lipstick and step out of the bus and remove my mask – knowing my bright lip is still looking 100% fabulous – I feel like a superhero.

And I know, I know. We’re all tired of the face masks. And the corona virus. And how it affects our every day lives.  But at this point we all know no thing is too small to be celebrated. And an empowering, long lasting red lip is definitely on my list of things that cheer me up.

Rimmel Provocalips Kiss Me You Fool

Best affordable smudge-free lipstick that lasts with a face mask

Looking for an affordable smudge-free lipstick? Rimmel’s Provocalips lipsticks are a great choice, even if you don’t enjoy matte lipsticks, because they come with a gloss.

These liquid lipsticks are something that I’ve used for years. I remember when they first came out and I was super impressed. They might have been the first liquid lipsticks, that I tried, that truly lasted the whole day.

There are several liquid lipsticks on the market, but the thing that sets these apart is the gloss. The moisturizing, color-locking gloss that makes all the difference to someone, who doesn’t really like matte lipsticks. Because I don’t. The gloss is what makes these work for me. It gives me that feeling of hydration and I love that I can just apply that on top of the lipstick even without a mirror. You know, because the lipstick does not move once it’s on.

The gloss lasts pretty well with the mask, but not totally. But that’s not a problem, because the actual lipstick does not smudge and you can always reapply the gloss once you’ve taken your mask off. Or not. These lipsticks work without the gloss too, if you’re more into that matte look.

And okay, now that we have this pandemic and we have to use masks – I’ve started to look at matte lipsticks a bit differently. Smudge-free intense color on the lips is suddenly my top priority.

When it comes to longevity – these are the best I’ve tried. They last drinking and eating as well, but sometimes, it does wear off just on the inner part of my bottom lip. It kind of depends on the food and how carefully I’m eating. So then I might just add a touch of lipstick on the inner part of my lip. Still – it doesn’t smudge on the edges.

This lipstick doesn’t smudge on my face mask either. There is nothing on the inside of my face mask when I remove it. The gloss on top might get worn off a bit (and the color is clear), but even that lasts surprisingly well, because it’s quite thick in consistency.

Now when it comes to removal – you need a makeup remover for waterproof makeup. Trust me, I’ve tried all the other ways, it doesn’t move, not even with an oil.

All in all these are a great option especially for these mask-times. The price doesn’t break the bank and the color options are nice (there are also new colors that I don’t have swatches of).
