Handmade Lip Lickers Make Me Wanna SMOOCH!

I have been LOVING me some handmade lip balm lately! I put on some cherry chapstick the other day and had to wipe it off because I've gotten so spoiled that it felt like I'd melted a candle onto my mouth. INTO the trash it went, even though I hate to waste, but I can just never go down that road again. So what are some good alternatives that I've been rockin' lately?

From S Type Creative I LOVE their handmade chocolate fudge lip balm! It smells amazing, and the smell of chocolate is a proven aphrodisiac ;-)It's long lasting and smooth and deeply penetrating.
Delightful and emolient. Our handcrafted lip balm smells terrific and lasts for hours without being greasy or waxy. Includes organic dutch cocoa which is reputed to be an antioxidant. Regardless of it’s alleged health properties, it smells great!
.15 oz oval natural tube.
Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil (and) Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol (and) Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil (and) Beeswax (and) Hydrogenated Castor Oil (and) Glycine Soja (Soybean) Lipids (and) Lauryl Laurate (and) Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax (and) Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Dutch Cocoa, artificial fudge flavor.

Naturally LeLa  has been a real head turner. I'm hooked on their lip balm and there's so much other stuff on their page I want to try!

can apparently do no wrong, because their C.A.D.D. (Cock-A-Doodle-Don't) lip balm is super flavored, smells lovely, and is another super rich, long lasting lip emollient. I have the Boonze Farm Tickle Pink. I love their hysterical product packaging! (I do wish their web page was a little easier to navigate though....) 
The husband is glad I now have around Crema de Coco from Diosa Botanicals because he doesn't like to use flavored or scented balms, and he enjoys the straightforwardness of this one, so this is what he reaches for. Coconut oil has been receiving a lot of attention lately as people are discovering it's wonderful properties for both the inside AND the outside of the body, something that the UA theater chain knew when we used coconut oil to pop our popcorn and were consistently voted best popcorn! These folks make their handmade lip balm using WILD HARVESTED coconuts! WOW! I need to move, all I can wild harvest around here is pecans!
The main ingredient, organic Coconut oil, is HANDMADE IN MONTEZUMA, COSTA RICA. Coconut oil naturally contains 7 SPF.

The coconut oil I use as a base in this lip balm is 100% hand made and organic from wildharvested Costa Rican coconuts. The oil is carefully slow toasted over a fire all day.

This is basically an unscented lip balm, but you will be able to enjoy the lightly toasted aroma of the coconut oil.

This lip balm is 100% plant based. The flavor from plants. This balm will not give you chapped lips, it leaves lips silky and lush. Won´t melt in yer pocket and one tube lasts forever!

Coconut Oil is an amazing healer. It is an emollient and leaves skin radiant and glowing. Coconut oil has a light amount of SPF. A light body, hand and face oil, coconut oil does not clog pores. It is an anti-bacterial, a mild insect repellant, and a skin cell regenerator. As many medicines grow in the place where they are most needed, coconut oil is a coolant for the skin that blossoms right from the steamy tropics.

Last but most certainly, definitely not least is the Lip Whip from Stinky D's. I have it in Orange, and if you watch my Sampler Village Summer Fun video review on my You Tube channel, you'll see first hand how exuberant it makes me! Seriously, it makes me totally dork out and swoon.

So take a chance and support indie businesses! You get high quality products made with sincerity and sticking it to "the man" at the same time :-) Besides, it always feels cool to pull something out of your bag and have people ask "wow, what's that?" Be a trendsetter- shop handmade!
Please note this will never make me stop buying Lancome ;- )

Oh, wait! Duh- Cherry City's  Happy Hour Lip Balm in Margarita makes any hour happy hour! Again, watch my Sampler Village Summer Fun review to see just how much I love them- or better yet, watch my review of many different items available from Cherry City! (reviews on You Tube, link to my channel on right hand top side of my page)
Their current special- I review the Lush Locks spray in the aforementioned video. I LOVE IT!
