Review: Crazy Rumors Lip Balm

Crazy Rumors Lip Balm Vegan
Petroleum is one ingredient that I truly hate with a passion. I spent most of my childhood smothered in the stuff so we do not see eye to eye. I have previously written about why I hate it (click here) but let me recap. 

1. Petroleum can also be referred to as mineral oil, liquidum paraffinum, paraffin oil, paraffin wax and petrolatum 
2. Initially leaves your skin feeling silky smooth but your skin does not absorb petroleum so the results are superficial. 
3. Does not heal damaged skin, it creates a barrier 
4. It is a cheaper filler ingredient 
5. I don’t want to ingest this ingredient in lip balms

I would love to persuade everyone to throw out Vaseline by tempting you with natural balms. It may surprise you that there are natural brands available on the high street, such as Figs & Rouge, Balm Balm and Dr Organic. My list of favourite balms is growing and includes Badger Balm, Sweet Cecily’s, Savonnaire London, Gwdihw and Crazy Rumors. All these lip balms contain similar ingredients so their performance is practically identical it just boils down to what flavour takes your fancy. The one brand that stands out to me has to be Crazy Rumors. 

Crazy Rumors is a USA brand (hence the spelling!). Their lip balms are 100% natural, organic, cruelty free and Vegan. These lips balms contain moisturising ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil. The flavours are naturally derived and taste amazing. I currently own Amaretto and Red Velvet but the flavour choices are endless – Candy Canes, Desserts, Bubble Gums, Sodas, Ice Creams, Tea, Coffee and more. I am not sure how many UK websites sell Crazy Rumors but I have purchased mine from (which is an all round awesome website). On this site these lip balms retail for £3.25. 

What do you think Sugarpuffettes, have I tempted you to treat your lips with a natural balm? Do you already have a favourite natural lip balm or use Crazy Rumors?
