Crazy Rumors – Gourmet Lip Balm in Brew and Perk

Crazy Rumors is a brand that seeks to turn lip balm into something organic AND fun, without any synthetic products or going over the top. These tasty lip balms were created by Brian Himmel and Edie Sherman, and they have launched twelve total flavors: six as part of the “Brew – Tea Balm” side, and an additional six under “Perk – Lip Latte.” All ingredients are natural, vegan-friendly, and never tested on animals. For you green folks, packaging for Crazy Rumors is 100% recyclable! Unlike some independent or organic brands, these products are totally affordable and even surprisingly inexpensive. $4 per lip balm OR buy a set of either Perk or Brew for only $22. I think regular ol’ Chapstick costs around there, so I think it’s a great deal. Plus, I think nearly everyone can use lip balm, which means perfect holiday gift! Small and lightweight makes it easy to carry around in your pocket for less heavy makeup days, and even non-makeup lovin’ boys will enjoy the wide range of scents.

I personally tried out Orange Bergamot Tea Balm as well as Amaretto Lip Latte. I found the formula to be incredibly moisturizing (which is like, duh, since there’s shea butter and jojoba oil in these). I love that I can easily see the ingredient list in Crazy Rumors products, because I feel more confident they’re sticking to their philosophy of all natural and transparency is such a great thing regardless. The scent of Orange Bergamot was similar to an orange creamsicle, which is not my personal favorite scent, but I loved the formula so much I didn’t care. I have to have lip balm with me at all times, unless I have lipstick/gloss on, but I guarantee you that there’s still going to be one in my pocket.

I loved these a lot, and I think they make excellent gifts to every gender and age. With the holidays upon us, they’re not a bad idea!
