It's official: Crazy Rumors is my favorite lip balm!

Specifically this lip balm... the Pink Grapefruit Juice flavor
is so yummy and emolient! *LOVE*
Wow. I have to share something with you, something that may not be a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but has made my life better regardless. I'm hoping you love it as much as I do!

Now, let me get this part out of the way, because I know some people wonder about it. Sometimes, I get products in the mail for evaluation. I don't mind this, and I'll give them an honest evaluation. But what you're reading is always what I honestly think about a product.

If I get a product that's just so-so, I'll explain what I don't like about it. If I get a product that sucks, I just won't write about it at all. I might also write about the problems I've had, asking if anyone else has had those issues, or if it's consistent across the brand.

However, I don't believe in writing a glowing review just because something was sent to me. If I say that I am absolutely over-the-moon in love with a product, that's because that product has impressed me, and no other reason.

Having said that? OMG, I absolutely ADORE the Pink Grapefruit Juice Lip Balm from Crazy Rumors. I live in South Louisiana, and it has been horribly hot this summer. We've had heat index of 110°-117° for weeks on end, which means it feels like 110°-117° outside. It's like stepping into a sauna, and it sucks. Because of this, I end up having chapped lips almost constantly.

Prior to trying this lip balm, I've been pretty loyal to one particular brand of balm, since it moisturized my lips without being too thick or too greasy. However, all it took was one try of Crazy Rumors balm and I was HOOKED!

Limeade and Pink Grapefruit Juice balms.
I didn't just use this once, though. I wanted to actually use it for a while, see how it lasts, see how often I have to apply it. I'm glad I did, because it's one more thing to like about it! Lots of balms actually seem to dry out your lips, causing you to need more and more balm. You end up running through a tube quickly, and having drier lips than ever.

This balm? I find I apply it two or three times a day and my lips stay incredibly soft without that greasy feeling I hate so much. It's really impressive, and I can't say enough about how much I love this stuff!

Then there's the ingredients: shea butter, jojoba oil, and extra virgin olive oil (all certified organic), stevia, vitamin E... I can feel good about putting this on my lips and into my body! And the flavors... OMG, the flavors! The Pink Grapefruit is delicious... I love it! The Limeade is kind of odd... it reminds me of kindergarten for some reason I can't quite put my finger on. It's not an unpleasant smell, though, and I still love how emollient it is.

Finally, there's the company itself! Their website describes how the company is Edie and Brian Himmel, a couple who love lip balm and wanted to make a stand-out product. There's a Crazy Rumors Twitter and a Crazy Rumors Facebook page, and both share tips, contests and special deals all the time! Why not pop over and follow them?

So, next time you need lip balm? Try Crazy Rumors... it really is amazing!

Til next time!
