Eco Lips Review and Giveaway!!

Eco Lips is a company that sells organic lip balms.  I was sent several varieties of their lip balms-the SPF 15 Mint Lip Balm, Hemp Lip Balm, Eco Tints Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Balm, the SPF 30 Face Stick and  one of their Cause Balms.  I love every single one of the products! I think my favorite would have to be the SPF 15 lip balm, but they're all great.  The face stick came in very handy several times when we were out in the sun a lot...it's so easy to just put the stick in my pocket or camera bag, and apply it several times during the day!
Eco Lips also offers a line of lip balms called Cause Balms, and for every lip balm sold through the Cause program, Eco Lips donates $1.00 to the corresponding charity! You can check out the Cause Balms here.

"In the early 1990s, Andrea Danielson began brewing small batches of natural lip balm in her kitchen for her friends and family.  She took great care in handcrafting the balm and packaging it in small amber glass jars to preserve the freshness of the pure ingredients.  Andrea didn’t realize that by giving a sample of her natural lip creation to Steve Shriver, her life would be changed forever.  Having larger than average lips, Steve was continually searching for a better lip balm.  When Steve met Andrea in 1995, he immediately fell in love with the lip balm, and moments later he also fell in love with Andrea.  They were married in 1997 and Steve, a lifetime entrepreneur, quickly spent Andrea’s life savings on ingredients and packaging for the couple’s first product, Hemp Lip Buzz.  By 2003, Steve and Andrea had built a specialized private label natural body care company focusing on making high quality products for many other successful brands.  Their company rapidly became a leading natural body care manufacturer in the Natural Products industry.
Much of the growth of their business was due to their top sales representative and entrepreneur, Jim King.  Working out of his California office, he founded and grew a successful and environmentally friendly promotional products company called Access Eco.  He enjoyed the process of building other peoples' brands through promotional products, but something was missing. Today, Eco Lips organic lip balm is handcrafted in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  With the mission of satisfying the needs of every customer, Eco Lips has been first to market with several innovative organic lip care products and packages.  With environmental initiatives in place, a focused marketing and sales strategy, award winning packaging, and a relaxed, yet productive work environment, Eco Lips is making its way around the world, one set of lips at a time."

Eco Lips is offering one lip balm (or face stick) of the winner's choice, and a bonus Eco Clip (pictured at right), to one of my readers!

  1. I'd love to get a face stick. I just got sunburnt yesterday while watching my nieces and nephews in the pool. It would have been some serious help because I could have gotten their cheeks too and none of us would have burnt.
