Every major city has that one health food store that’s been there since flower child days. Long before Whole Foods, Goop and all the other trendy beautiful people, there was the little place with the folks behind the counter with the long, long hair. They had secret wellness tips unknown to we mortals. One older lady in my city nodded sagely as she said pointedly, “Never use anything on your skin, on your face, that you would be afraid to put in your mouth. Your body absorbs ingredients! Don’t put poisons on it!”
Soulmate Naturals supports that whole line of thinking with their all natural personal care and beauty products that have upscale textures. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!
Their lip balm comes in two sizes and several flavors. They’re soft, with a lot of slip. You’ll find them soothing, even on the most chapped and irritated lips. Did you imagine that the flavors would be Plain Jane? Well, re-imagine everything you know about natural lip balm! Soulmate Kiss has as a dark black cherry-like taste. Bubblegum has that classic Bazooka aroma. Coconut has a toasted coconut fudge scent. Peppermint isn’t like a leaf, but rather, like the sweet, creamy center in chocolate mint candies.
Ingredients are simple: coconut oil, beeswax, organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, tocopherol (vitamin E).
The balms have very sheer tints. If you’ve been looking at some of the heavily lacquered, opaque and unnaturally colored lip products newly on the market and shuddered at the thought of looking like Mr. Bill in 1970’s SNL sketches, you’ll feel more comfortable in your own skin with these gentle, subtle products. They’re perfect for all ages, all genders!
