You may have noticed I already included a few S.W. Basics products in my Holiday Gift Guides and that is because I have been enjoying everything that I have tried from this brand so far. Each product is made with the simplest list of ingredients possible, yet it is a very effective skincare line. Least amount of ingredients means, less chances of being sensitive to the product, so I like the approach that S.W. Basics has toward product formulations.
The Organic Lip Balm Flights* set is one of my favorites from S.W. Basics. Not only does it come in the cutest tin (that totally reminds me of the candy tins my grandma would give me every time I visited her), but it contains four different lip balms. All of them have the same, simple base ingredients of cocoa butter, coconut oil, and beeswax. The three scented lip balms have additional oils such as Peppermint essential oil (Peppermint), Lemon & Orange essential oils (Citrus), and Cardamom & Cinnamon essential oils (Cinnamon). S.W. Basics also makes a vegan lip balm set that is exactly the same except that it contains candelilla wax instead of beeswax. If I had tried these before writing my post about my favorite lip balms, they would have been in that list for sure. They keep my lips well moisturized and protected from harsh weather, smell lovely, and help any lipstick to glide on beautifully. What elese could you ask for in a lip balm??
These are a must have for the cold season and make a great (inexpensive) gift. You can find them at Spirit Beauty Lounge (vegan/candelilla wax) and at Birchbox (non-vegan/beeswax).
