Hi! Remember me? I’m Jenn, and I’m the founder/owner of this blog. Yea, I know, it’s been a LOOOONG while since you’ve heard from me. It’s not that I don’t have lots of great beauty products and topics I want to write about. I’ve just struggled to make Beautypendence a priority. At my day job, we’re starting a new fiscal year, so let’s call it my new year resolution to bring more beauty goodness to you, my Beautypendents.
To get up and going again, I have the perfect product to write about. In fact, it’s one of my prized products. And I’ve been wanting to tell you about this product for a couple of years. It’s my favorite lip balm. I present to you… Hurraw! Balm. The exclamation is their addition, not mine, but I concur. It’s a silky formula, all organic lip balm, in an array of delicious flavors.
I first discovered Hurraw! Sun Protection Balm SPF15 at W3ll People in Austin. Since that first purchase years ago, the formula has changed, but it’s still an essential item in my purse makeup kit. When I used up that first tube, I visited the Hurraw! website to order more, and whoa! The selection is like a candy store. I haven’t quite tried them all, but I’ve tried many. Here are a few of my faves:
Moon Balm – Hurraw’s Night Treatment Lip Balm is my most prized of the prized. This has been on my nightstand for years. It’s a great alternative to the old Vaseline standby but just as moisturizing and long-lasting.
Black Cherry – What’s your favorite Starburst flavor? Duh, it’s cherry. This balm tastes exactly like a cherry Starburst! (This is not and endorsement to eat the balm.)
Earl Grey – Hurraw! has a whole line-up of tea flavored balms, but this is my pick of the litter. There’s something I find so soothing about the smell of bergamot.
So, lots of great flavors. BUT, tastiness alone does not a prized lip balm make. In their facility in Montana, Hurraw! pours each tube individually with premium organic, raw, and vegan ingredients. And to use their own words, “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!” I couldn’t say it better myself.
But really, what I love most about Hurraw! is the outstanding customer service. I’ve been ordering from their website since 2012. Tubes make the perfect stocking stuffer gift. Once you place an order, you’ll receive frequent updates on the status, although you won’t be waiting long for delivery. Every Hurraw! order I’ve received comes with my selection of balms, neatly packaged, often with a bonus tube, and a friendly, handwritten note.
Who knew ordering lip balm could be such a treat?!?
Just as I do with hand lotions, I strategically place my Hurraw! Balms around my apartment, in my office desk, in my most used purses. I highly recommend you do the same. Hmm, in fact, it may be time to make a new order…
