OMFrigginG! Everyone say HURRAW! | Lip Balm Review

I'll say it again... Oh, My Friggin Gawd!!! 

As most of you know I rarely have a completely positive post about a product...Aside from Dr. Bronners - Everyone who follows my blog will know I love Dr. Bronners.

Anyway, I reviewed the ingredients on the HURRAW! website and decided to ask them for some samples of their lip balms and OMG! Okay I sound like a teenager but OMG! This stuff is fantastic!..I know it's only a lip balm but I really do love it. 

I'm totally (juvenile voice), like totally gonna hoard these...Nope not sharing with way...Okay Mom since I know you love grapefruit I'll let you have the grapefruit one
Now you'll owe me one ;)

The package didn't take long to get here and they had them well wrapped and in the cutest little natural drawstring bag.  Also included was a sticker-thingy, a brochure and a hand written post card!

First a little about the company and the product:

"Super smooth, not draggy, not sticky, not sweet, not too glossy, not too smelly, never grainy, long lasting; plus, it had to hold up to being in a back jeans pocket all day without melting! It took us several obsessed years to formulate Hurraw! Balm and put it through all the rigors. We love it, use it, and hope you do too!"

Everything they say here is absolutely true, well I never had the chance to check the melting in the back pocket part, but it is sooo smooth and creamy just like the finest creamy chocolate.

A little more:

They hand mix small, fresh, handcrafted batches and individually pour each tube of HURRAW! Balm. Through a slow careful process they infuse their balms with raw seeds, pods, fruit zests, barks and roots for flavor and natural color, using fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers. Their certified organic, raw oils are cold pressed and centrifuged extracted, nut/seed oils and butters that have been processed below 118F degrees and are still chocked full of their essential nutrients and enzymes.  They will even provide certificates of proof that the ingredients they use are organic.

HURRAW! Balm is also a Certified Vegan product (CCIC approved). 'Vegan' means no animal products (ie: beeswax) are included in their product. They are also cruelty-free.

To top it all off, they are completely toxin-free, Gluten Free, GMO Free and Kosher. Their packaging is recyclable...Oh and the cute little bag they came in is a 100% cotton reusable teabag!

On to my lip treasures:

The flavors I received were Grapefruit, Cherry, Coconut & Chocolate.

I never tried the Grapefruit as I will be passing this one on to my mother who loves grapefruit... it has a fresh light grapefruity scent...You know the scent when someone across the table is peeling a fresh grapefruit...That about sums it up.

The Black Cherry is lightly tinted with wildcrafted Alkanet root and smells exactly like cherry lolipops. All the ingredients that can be organic or wildcrafted are organic or wildcrafted.

Now, if I ever have the need to benefit from the cleansing effects of eating castor oil I will devour the next two lip balms...:D

The Coconut has a warm sweet fresh coconut scent like a huge organic delectable toasted macaroon.  The texture is so smooth and creamy just like coconut milk...I'm am completely in love with this lip balm...It should be call Mouthwatering Macaroon!

And lastly, OMG - I had to say it again ;) is the Chocolate.  I almost didn't want to try the chocolate because when you think of chocolate, it tastes fabulous but the scent is not all that great...This is not simply chocolate's wow, I'm-in heaven with a mocha, vanilla-caramel dreamy treat.  I had everything I could do not to eat it...Ummm...I actually did take a taste...I'm afraid if I wear this people will want to chew the lips right off my face!

You get the point - I love the Chocolate HURRAW!

Out of all the products I have tried lately even though some were very nice, I'm just not big into cosmetics or personal care stuff so most things I've tried either was shared with friends or I have them in my refrigerator to make sure they last as I probably won't use them often.  The HURRAW's are already in my pocket and they are staying there.  They say they are developing one with SPF too so if it is a non-nano mineral SPF - I want one!

I wore the chocolate on my lips last night and my lips felt very silky and not at all greasy even by morning.  And just because I wanted to go into lala land with the heavenly scent I put some on my nose...So I'm weird, but when I woke up this morning the dry chapped skin around my nostrils (from gardening in the cold and having a nose like a faucet) was completely gone!  Another use for me :D
Constructive Criticism:

Okay, okay...I can't do a review without a negative...That's just me, there's good and bad in everything.  Not every one of their lip balms are made entirely with organic ingredients...They are all 100% natural and some are entirely organic (aside from the vitamin E), so if you want completely organic then read the ingredients for each one...They fully disclose all ingredients. (None of that proprietary blend crap there).
And another complaint I have - and this is a big one...Why the heck do they only offer lip balms?  I want to see an organic body balm, organic sugar scrub and an organic castile soap with those heavenly flavors!

And a word of caution: Licking your lips to frequently will cause chapping...Be sure to carry your HURRAW! with you at all times to replenish every second or two ;)

Thanks HURRAW! for making me love to lick my lips. 

These would make the perfect colorful yummy additions to your Easter baskets!

Okay, that sounded totally (juvenile voice) like an infomercial or something...I just wanted to say that I am never paid for my opinion and even if I was popular enough that someone would want to pay for my opinion, I would still tell it like it is...Totally ;)
