As lip balms have a way of going missing, we recommend leaving each one in a place you might need it so you’re never without.

Birchbox Breakdown

Ease the pain of chapped lips with this Brooklyn-based brand’s all-natural balms. Packaged in a tin not unlike the one that houses your favorite mints, this set of four balms (Peppermint, Cocoa, Cinnamon, and Citrus) is like a beeswax-based buffet. Each flavor soothes dry, cracked mouths without any residue or shine.

How to Use

S.W. Basics uses select organic and fair trade ingredients to create all their highly potent balms. The base of each flavor is an effective blend of natural wax, coconut oil, and cocoa butter. Fewer additives means less irritation, so these are perfect for more sensitive skin.

Beeswax or candelilla wax, extra-virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter, essential oils (In citrus, cinnamon, and peppermint options)

Pay attention to the scents!!!
Purchased

Other reviewers have mentioned that the more powerful scents overpower the softer scents in the tin. I didn't pay attention to this problem and unfortunately, now I know they were right. The cocoa scent has been completely absorbed into the citrus scent, which is a bit of a gross combination (and the fake scent of cocoa is completely unappealing to me). I would honestly only recommend this to someone interested in a chocolate scented lip balm because it is so strong. The others, that I thought I would enjoy, aren't very strong and have been totally overpowered by the cocoa. The tin/balms are cute, and the lip balm works, but if you're not one for very strong, specific scents, I wouldn't recommend it.

BAD, BAD, BAD - the texture is terrible, actually felt like they dried my lips out. Sad to say I threw them out.

Great set.
Purchased

I am a lip balm snop. I agree that the chocolate smell is a little strong, but it also faded after you open the set. The lip balms are amazing. They are very smooth and creamy, really moisturizing. I would call it a lip balm/ lotion. Really if the worse thing that happens is my lip balm smells to much like chocolate, I say that is a good day. :)

Delicious!

I love lip balms. So, when I saw this cute tin with 4 tubes, I had to order. I am not into cinnamon so I gave this one to a friend. The others are so wonderful. I may have a new brand. These balms left my lips moisturized and fixed the chap without any issues.

balm!

I love lip balm, I have about a zillion including one in every coat and every purse. This one isn't anything extra-special but it worked just fine for me, although the scent was a little strong for my taste.
