It got quiet around here.  I kind of took an unofficial summer hiatus from beauty reviews but I am itching to get back into into and have a lot of new things to write about that I experienced over the summer. I want to rev up this blog somewhat too and make it more of it’s own animal.  In the meantime I want to start telling you about some of the products I checked out this summer.  Since summer is winding down (and for some of us it’s officially over – my kids have been back to school for 2 weeks already) and thoughts of those cool crisp Fall nights are on my mind.  And so is chapped lips. Many of you know about my obsession with all things lip balm so this review won’t come as a shock.

My friend Andi of Good Things Green Things sent me a tube of Purple Prairies Spearmint Shimmer Lip Balm a while back .  If you haven’t seen her shop you should check it out, she has a great selection of safe skin care, hair care and body products from some of my favorite companies.

As far as lip balms go, it glides on smoothly and has a pleasant minty scent that isn’t too powerful.  But what I love is that it has a mild pink shimmer to it so instead of just a plain lip balm it gives you a little oomph.  It’s one of my favorite new things and I carry it with me all the time.  Who doesn’t need “oomph” on a daily basis, right?

The base ingredients are very simple: Organic Olea europaea(Olive)fruit oil, organic cera alba(beeswax), unrefined organic butyrospermum parki fruit(Shea Butter), coconut oil, mentha piperita(peppermint oil), mentha spicata(spearmint oil).  It’s handmade in the USA and it works just as well as any schmancy lip balm you can find. Love it.
