When I sat down to select my product of the year, believe me, it was a daunting task. Any founder, editor or blogger will share that sentiment as we go through countless beauty and non-beauty products each year, and along the way fall in love with so many! So how to pick a favourite? Here’s my criteria which helped to at least narrow down the list: It must be 100% natural, organic, used daily, and lastly went with me on my travels throughout the year. The answer for me was quite obvious - my product of the year had to be Henné Organics Lip Balm!
I have extremely dry lips - it matters not whether it is summer of winter, my lips are usually dry. I have used many different lip balms over the years but although they indeed did a fine job of moisturizing, I always needed re-application. That can be quite an inconvenience when you have lipstick on or when you find yourself outside without the balm and have to go through the rest of the day uncomfortable with dry lips that just cannot be saved with more lipstick after a certain point. The only product that worked well for me in the past was Vaseline, but I gave it up a long time ago and had been on the hunt for a replacement ever since.
I tried out Henné Organics earlier this year in February and since then I have been obsessed with this amazing product in a chic black miron glass jar. I have used it without fail twice daily and am now half way through my second 10 mL pot. I use a generous amount which is quite unnecessary since a little goes a long way, and had I been more mindful, the first jar would’ve lasted much longer.
The ingredient list is sure to impress the toughest critic. It contains Organic Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera) to repair and soften dry lips and retain moisture; Organic Beeswax (Cera Alba) which is anti-inflammatory and is a great petroleum alternative; Organic Avocado Oil (Persea Americana) which increases collagen production and decreases signs of aging along with softening rough, dry and flaky skin; Organic Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) which is deeply moisturizing, rich in Vitamin A, E and F, and provides UV protection and strengthens skin; Organic Cocoa Seed Butter (Theobroma Cacao) that is the ultimate moisturizer and contains antioxidants that can reduce the appearance of scars, burns and stretch marks; Organic Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis) which is antibacterial and can reduce skin bacteria by unblocking pores; Vitamin E (Tocopherol) that gets rid of dry or chapped lips and protects them from sun damage as well as prolonging the shelf life of the balm.
Henné Organics is an important part of my skincare routine year-round and it is the only balm that has worked for my extremely dry lips. I would recommend it to anyone that has dry lips and is looking for a soothing balm that will moisturize, repair and last a long time!
Don’t just take my word for it - here is a lovely testimony by a happy customer, Anita:
"This is a great lip balm. It makes my lips feel smooth and silky after application. And a little goes a long way! If you love the subtle scent of cocoa with the added benefits of applying an all organic balm to your lips, then this is a product for you!"
