Amazing lip balm with a rare blend of healing tamanu oil and antiseptic tea tree oil.
Posted by Leione on Jan 12, 2014
Great for my lips. I have very sensitive lips prone to getting painfully dry, peeling, chapping, and, as a result, extreme soreness, especially in winter. I've been looking for an all-natural organic lip balm for a very long time, and I think I've finally found it. I really like Sierra Bees lip balms. The best thing about them is that they don't contain any synthetic, artificial, or dangerous ingredients, which is hard to find these days. They’re also gluten free, which is especially important for people suffering from gluten intolerance and celiac disease, sustainable, which means the company cares about nature and tries not to disturb its delicate balance, compact and easy to carry around, you don’t have to worry about accidentally swallowing any dangerous carcinogenic ingredients, and you can try them for free! This organic tamanu and tea tree oil lip balm is not something you would find in a typical lip balm. It does wonders for my lips. The ingredients are amazing. Tamanu oil, one of its main ingredients, is an ancient Polynesian beauty secret famous for its powerful healing, nourishing, regenerating, pain relieving, antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antioxidant properties and truly an amazing remedy for dry and chapped lips, as well as many other serious skin conditions. Rich in antioxidants, it accelerates healing and the growth of new and healthy skin, nourishes, soothes, and repairs dry and damaged skin, relieves pain caused by inflammation, fends off infection, prevents dryness, chapping, and inflammation, restores skin elasticity, protects against premature aging. Tea tree oil is a potent antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral agent and immunostimulant capable of fighting off different types of infections, bacteria, viruses, fungi, alleviating inflammation, which is something chapped lips are particularly prone to, and boosting the immune system. Olive oil is known for its antioxidant properties and for deeply moisturizing, nourishing, regenerating, and softening the delicate skin of the lips, beeswax forms a protective barrier on their surface while still allowing the skin to breathe, sunflower seed oil is a noncomedogenic oil gently healing, moisturizing, and protecting your lips against irritation and infection, vitamin E (another great thing about Sierra Bees lip balms is that it’s non-GMO and derived from sunflower seed oil) is a powerful antioxidant vital to skin health, as well as a natural preservative. I’ve been using this lip balm for a while, and I’m already impressed by the results. The condition of my lips has noticeably improved: they are no longer painfully dry, chapped, and peeling – they are smooth, soft, and healthy instead.
Funny smell of tea tree.

The quality is very good, it is a very hydrating lip balm. The smell is a bit funny, I am not used my lips to smell tea tree oil. The other flavours are much better. Thorn Organics has a good lip balm too. Click on my username for more reviews! If you thought that this review was helpful please feel free to press the 'yes' button.

I love this as it is organic and it also smells great. It comes at a very great price so barely noticeable when added to your cart. It's great for moistening and has great staying power. I would purchase again as it healed my broken/chapped lips.
It tasted like tea tree oil

Glad it was a free offer from IHerb. It tastes like what I clean my floors with...
Good product at a bargain.

I am not a big user of lip balms but I gave this to a friend and they liked it. It has some excellent ingredients. Pick it up as a freebie while they are available. Read the other great reviews.

No don't like this primarily because of the strong smell like oil from a car service

This lip balm is just as fantastic as all the other ones from this brand. Soft, easy to apply, moisturizing, with a great scent. And it's FREE! What can be better?
Great lip balm!

As all of the lip balms I've ordered from the product line, this one also smells great, does a great job moisturizing lips, leaving them very soft and comfortable. It smells of tea-tree oil and it is kinda nice to have a chopstick smelling herbal, masculine. Very easy to apply and does not get extremely hard on cold weather. Tea tree oil gives protection from bacteria and fungi, and this balm fixes chopped lips very quickly. It might appear a bit thinner than most of the other lip balms, but it is still a great product considering the price. It has a warranty seal on the side of the cap, so you know that no one has opened it before you did. This being an organic product makes it worth even more - knowing that you're using a natural product makes you feel comfortable putting it on the lips and reapplying. Would definitely recommend it to everyone! If you think this review was helpful to you, please click "yes" and click on my profile for more reviews, info, and useful advice. Thanks!
