6 Cruelty Free Lip Balms You Should Try Today

Copy: Serena Faber Nelson

A good lip gloss can make your day. A bad one, not so much.

Bad lip glosses and tints are the worst – they dry out your lips instead of protecting them, they feel sticky, and sometimes have you looking like you’ve made out with a bag of Krispy Kremes rather than the luscious lip effect your were going for.

But a GOOD cruelty free lip balm? It’s worth it’s weight in gold.

That’s why we’ve rounded up our faves to share with you today. Viva la bunny!

100% Pure Pigment Lip Glaze
This range of organic lip glazes get their colour from natural fruit pigments – making them rich in natural antioxidants and vitamins. Each lip glaze has a moisturising base of avocado and cocoa butters leaving your lips super soft and nourished. They comes in 7 shades however my favourite pick is Peach Bellini.

Go-To Lips!
The hero product of Zoe Foster’s amazing Go-To Skincare range, Lips! is all about moisture and protection – and it WORKS. It uses medical grade lanolin, nourishing apricot kernel, avocado, almond, evening primrose, vitamin E and jojoba oils, as well as beeswax and soothing calendula and shea butter to ensure your lips are genuinely nourished, protected and conditioned. With a subtle sheen, the clear gloss is your answer to all those vaseline-y lip balms that promised moisture but left your lips dry, parched and greasy. Go-To won’t leave you hanging like that – a few applications and your lips will feel like they’ve won the moisture jackpot.



Becca Beach Tint
I couldn’t do summer without this little gem! The beautifully blendable crème stain for cheeks and lips suits all skin types and comes in 8 shades. Kiss-proof and water-resistant, it dries to a perfect, streak-free, non-greasy and non-drying finish. It leaves you with the flush of colour but no sticky residue. A great all-rounder.

Burt Bee’s Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit
This juicy lip balm is made with nutritious, tropical Pink Grapefruit Seed Oil, bursting with powerful vitamins. It has a tangier flavour than other balms, with the grapefruit softening and protecting the lips. Lower sheen than other glosses, it’s also great for no-fuss application.

    Just a tad bit of info. Burt’s Bees itself IS cruelty-free, but it is owned by a company (I forget who) that is not. The Burt’s Bees brand is doing what it should, but I still don’t buy Burt’s because I don’t want to support its owner 🙁

    Burt’s Bees is owned by Clorox, and they test on animals , won’t buy anymore

    Burt’s Bees…not to mention that any product that comes from bees (like honey) is likely not cruelty free.
