Epic Blend Lip Balms

Anyone that knows me in real life knows that I'm addicted to lip balm. I need to always have one nearby, just in case my lips feel dry. I've tried out a million and one different formulas, and I know what I like. So, when I heard about Epic Blend, I was very curious. These lip balms* have simple packaging, but I love how you can easily tell each flavour apart by the different colours. Could these lip balms really change the way I think about lip balm? Read on to find out!


Epic Blend has three different formulas: vegan, more moisture, and hemp. I like that each balm explicitly states which formula it is, there's no guess work here. The hemp balms are you guessed it - made with hemp (organic hemp seed oil, to be specific). I don't generally think of hemp as being super hydrating, so these balms didn't initially excite me. Oh boy, was I ever wrong - I've been reaching for these balms the most! I love the hemp scents (vanilla and coconut to be specific), and the formula is light but also hydrating.  


The "More Moisture" balms immediately had my attention - and they didn't disappoint. These balms are creamy, hydrating, and they don't just sit on top of your lips, they actually nourish and moisturize. My favourite scent from this formula has been Cherry (which surprised me since this is normally a scent that I despise). This formula contains Shea butter, so it's not surprise that they're super hydrating. 


And finally, the vegan lip balms. My diet is about 95% vegan (I just can't give up chocolate, and yes, chocolate does make up at least 5% of my diet), but I haven't carried that over to my beauty/skin care regime quite yet. These vegan balms do not contain beeswax, but they're still very hydrating. Seriously, Epic Blend have mastered the art of lip balms! My favourite vegan scent/formula has been Wild Berry. 

These balms retail for $3.49 each, or 4 for $12. Epic Blend is also currently offering free Canadian shipping on all orders over $15 on Epicblend.com. I've been really impressed with these balms, and I think you would be too. These balms last about 3 hours on my lips, which I find really great because I'm normally a constant-reapplier! These balms don't add any colour to your lips, although I'd love it if Epic Blend put out a range of tinted lip balms! I've passed on the Grape scent to my boyfriend, and he's enjoying that one (yay for guy friendly products!). He likes that the packaging isn't super girly, and that he isn't left with shiny, glossy lips.
Epic Blend currently has a limited edition banana scent that I'm just dying to try out! Have you tried any Epic Blend Lip Balms before? What scent is your favourite?

  6. I love these balms. Actually, schmearing one all over my face has saved it from dryness, post-outbreak, so I need to update my 'many uses' to include 'general skin saving'!
