New Favorite Lip Balm!

Winter means dry lips, which means an excuse to buy fun new lip products! Even though I already have about a bazillion different lip glosses and lip balms, I couldn't resist picking up the Crazy Girl lip balm when it showed up on EdenFantasys! I had one of those "Do I REALLY need another lip balm?" moments before putting it in my cart, but I'm glad I got it!

Crazy Girl lip balm - Lip balm

This is pretty awesome stuff. It has a light fruity scent, but that fades fairly quickly once it is applied. What really impressed me was how long lasting it is! I have so many lip balms that disappear a minute or two after I apply them, but I could still feel this one for a long time! It's not sticky or goopy, it just gives your lips a little bit of moisture and softness. LOVE IT! It's sold for $6.99, but you can get 15% off with promo code SP3, and you can always earn a few Eden Points by doing searches, adding stuff to your wish list, etc (I have a whole post about that here) to knock the price down even more! Other cool things about it: It's made in the USA, has SPF 15 to protect against both UVA and UVB rays, contains alove vera and vitamin E and is PABA-free. This would be great as a stocking stuffer, or as part of a gift basket! I do wish it came with some kind of packaging for gifting purposes (you just get the tube of lip balm itself, no box or display card or anything). Still, with a little bow or a mini gift bag, it would be a great gift for people you don't know all that well, too, since everyone needs lip balm this time of year, and the scent/taste is something that pretty much anyone will like.

I can't remember if I ever mentioned it, but a month or so ago the site started offering free shipping on orders over $35, instead of their old policy of free shipping on orders $59+. I'm really stubborn about not paying for shipping (like... ever), so I love that I don't feel like I have to wait until I want a lot of things before I order now!
