I have been on a kick of late to find more natural beauty products. After I made the decision to switch to Lily Lolo for my face, I wondered about my lips. Springing to my aid with something for me to try was Lotty Blue and one of the many products she stocks in her shop. 

The Handmade Soap Company is new to her virtual shelves and from this product alone, I am pretty pleased they are only a click away. I picked an Au Natural with Rosehip oil lip balm to review, along with some moustache wax for The Beard (review soon) . Perhaps not the most adventurous of things, a balm,  but boy am I glad I have it now. Made from natural ingredients and packaged in a nifty brushed silver tin, it has become a daily staple. 

Now -  I confess. I was not a fan of it at first. I am used to a balm either in a stick or a tin that is a little easier to apply. Because of the beeswax, this is a pretty solid balm that takes a while to get from tin to lip, But, once I developed a knack of lifting a little bit out on the top of my nail -  it was plain sailing. I have found that I do not need a lot of balm to give my lips a good dose of moisture, but equally, if I do go over board, it is not a greasy mess. I have found with some petroleum based balms that if you apply too much, it feels and acts a little like a lip gloss. Not so with this little beaut. Just nice, moisturised lips. And all from the humble bumble. 

The balm is un-coloured and scented -  but it does have a slight menthol-ness to it, which makes it a tad tingly, in a good way.   

The Handmade Soap Company Lip Balm is available here from LottyBlue -  with a further 20% off using discount code "landgirl1980" until 31st August across the store -  excluding sale items.

A lip-smacking 8/10 from me!
