Review: Lypsyl Lip Balm

Lypsyl Lip Balm, c/o Lypsyl

Sorry things have been a little light around here. My desktop computer at home sh*t the bed, and I can’t be productive on a laptop. I’m also up to my eyeballs in “extra curricular activities” and still getting over last week’s annoying sick day. Nothing says get right back to it like a beauty review about my latest and greatest lip balm though; am I right?! No? Okay, anyway…

Growing up I had really terrible eczema. It was on the eyes of my elbows, and of all places, my face. My cupid’s bow always had open cuts and around and under my eyes was always a flaky mess. As I’ve grown my eczema has lessened, but my lips and my cupid’s bow are still prone to extreme dryness. Therefore, I am always incredibly careful with what I use on my lips.

For many years I only used Vaseline or Aquaphor since they were not super enhanced with color or fragrance. Every dermatologist I went to when I was a kid made sure I knew that petroleum jelly was my BFF. Lucky my skin has matured, so although I still swear by vaseline for eye makeup removal and night time chap stick, I am able to wear different lip balms throughout the day.

Lypsyl Lipbalm is unique in plenty of ways, the first being in its packaging. You slide the product up using a little bee on the side instead of twisting from the bottom or applying with your finger. It’s also not in a regular cylinder tube making it super easy to feel out when digging for it at the bottom of my purse. It’s the little things.

I also love that is it made with Swedish Beeswax. Can I be honest? Not a fan of Burt’s Bees. It literally stings my lips and gives me an incredibly unwelcome burning sensation that I would like to reserve for tiger balm on my bad knees, thankyouverymuch. Now I’m not all up on the difference between domestic beeswax and Swedish beeswax, but I can tell you that Lypsyl is truly the smoothest, silkiest lip balm I have tried that has long lasting effects. It doesn’t sting when you apply. And it smells delicious.

I’m also a sucker for all the other natural ingredients the Lypsyl ingredient list boasts: shea butter, elderberry, coconut oil, aloe, chamomile, honey. Fancy.

Lypsyl really is a welcome addition to my beauty bag. It leaves my lips feeling silky smooth without it feeling yucky and tacky 30 minutes later. I’m excited to keep this handy as the weather gets cooler and the wind chill starts getting more intense.

On that note – can you believe it is seriously November already? Where the heck did the time go? It’s exhausting.
