Alteya Organics Lip Balm Review *gifted

How is this for timing; a new lip balm arrived in the post to review just as I have been suffering with dry skin and lips. Not sure why that's happening as the weather is starting to look up, but thank you to those who gifted me a sample of Alteya Organics Lip Balm.

These lip balms are USDA certified 100% organic, chemical and GMO free, and is marked as not tested on animals. As with many lip balms out there, they also claim to soothe, moisturise, and fight signs of ageing on the packaging.

The different options are:
  • Rose
  • Jasmine and Ylang Ylang
  • Vanilla and Geranium
  • Lavender and Mint
  • Grapefruit and Zoravetz
  • Lavender
I am always drawn to the lip balm section of any shop, and have on occasion ended up with a little collection of balms with various scents/ingredients, so this was a review I was looking forward to, although I admit to being a bit sceptical when I saw I had been sent the lavender and mint version. I love both things, and use mint lip balms quite often, but I never would have thought of putting them both together in a lip product. But having used it for a while now, the smell is definitely not what I was expecting. I thought the lavender would over power, but it's a good balance of the two ingredients together and is quite subtle. On the lips it feels nice, with a slight refreshing feeling coming from the mint, and seems to last quite a while before it needs replacing. 

Although it's not my favourite lip balm I've tried, I'd still use it again, and try out one or two of the other options. I'm curious about the grapefruit and jasmine ones. Prices start at £3.60 with products available from Love Lula, a natural beauty shop.
