Epic Blend Lip Balms Review & Giveaway

epic blend lip balm review

I am a huge lip balm addict, but I will pretty much only use balms with natural ingredients that leave my mouth with a pleasant taste. Epic Blend lip balms are exactly my type of balm, they smell and taste greate, and come in a variety of flavours split into three different categories; hemp, vegan, and more moisture. They are made in Canada and launched in 2007 in Kelowna, BC.

Epic Balm says:
Smooth glide without the greasiness
Gluten free, petroleum-free, non-GMO, all natural
Not tested on animals
Nutrient-dense natural and organic ingredients

epic blend lip balm review

These balms are awesome and definitely pass the 'will I use you everyday?' test. Mainly because they smell and taste great! They glide smoothly onto the lips and don't feel heavy or sticky at all. There is no major shine added to my lips either. You do need a few swipes in order for the moisture to last longer.

I've been using Citrus Kick very frequently and noticed that I still have a ton of product left, so the product amount seems to last and be worth it for the very decent price of $3.49. They aren't the longest lasting natural lip balm I have came across, lasting maybe 1-3 hours depending on what you are doing with your mouth (like eating and talking, I mean! jeez), but with flavours like these, (my favourite being wild berry and cherry), I don't mind reapplying!

Hemp Balms
Organic Hemp Seed Oil is a great anti-oxidant, super-nourishing and quickly absorbs deep into the skill cells. Key Ingredients: Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Beeswax, Non-Gmo Vitamin E
Flavours: Coconut, Mint, Vanilla, Citrus Kick

Mint, as you guessed, does tingle a bit and is probably ideal for summer months or for those who find it refreshing. Coconut and Vanilla are both light and smell similar, with Vanilla sort of resembling a hot chocolate or coffee flavoured lip balm I would have used in my past. Citrus Kick has a bit of a punch and is fun and tangy. 

epic blend vegan wild berry pineapple mint lip balm review
Vegan Balms
100% Plant-based and beeswax-free All-natural food-grade Candelila wax, which gives these balms an incredibly smooth texture. Key Ingredients: Food-grade candelila wax, organic coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, organic cocoa butter, non-gmo vitamin E
Flavours: Wild Berry, Pineapple-Mint

Wild Berry has to be my favourite scent of the lot. It is such a unique lip balm scent, is the perfect strength, and smells like a body mist I would love to spray all over myself. Pineapple-mint was a bit strange at first, the pineapple being a bit stronger than the mint but overall a very light scent.

More Moisture Balms
Seven moisturizers, including Organic Shea Butter come together to provide an extra kick of moisture plus a boost of staying power. Key Ingredients: Organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, organic castor oil, organic beeswax, non-gmo vitamin E 
Flavours: Cherry, Grape, Unflavoured, Green Apple

I do notice the more moisture balms lasting slightly longer than any of the other balms, which would be why, if I had to choose, I would recommend these over the other 2 lines of balms. There is also an Unflavored version in this line, perfect for those who prefer no flavour or are sensitive to it. Cherry, Grape, and Green Apple are all perfectly scented and smelt just as expected.

epic blend garnet star tinted lip balm review
Garnet Star Tinted Balm
Sheer merlot colour and a subtle shimmer that maintains a natural look. Key Ingredients: Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Castor Seed Oil, Candelilla Wax, Vitamin E, Rosemary Extract

 The Garnet Star Tinted Balm comes in one flavour, Pomegranate. It is priced slightly higher than the regular balms, at $4.99. It has a slight scent, but mostly just smells like a standard lip balm, or like Burt's Bees tinted balm. The tint is slightly darker than most people's lip colours so it might do more for them. I have pigmented lips so this was essentially the same colour as my lips and just helped to even them out. However, I wouldn't use this everyday as I just didn't feel it was as moisturizing as the others.

epic blend lip balm comparison review
I thought it was interesting that the ingredients and flavour changed the light/darkness of the balm.

My favourite flavour is definitely wild berry, with cherry coming in at a close second. All of the fruity scents are amazing, with the non-fruity scents being much lighter in scent but still smelling delicious. There is not one balm in the pack that I would not use. 

Epic Blend lip balms are available at retailers across Canada, sold individually for MRSP of $3.49. You can purchase individuals or 4-packs for $12.99 directly from the Epic Blend website. The Garnet Star Tinted Balm is $4.99. Shipping is as low as $4 for Canada and the US and $15 internationally. A full list of locations can be found here when you enter your postal code. In Canada you will likely find them in a local health food shops, Boathouse's, and other organic shops. I do not believe they can be found in stores outside of Canada, they are only available for online order.

I would definitely purchase more Epic Blend balms once I finish up the ones I have. I have already given away a few to some friends and family and they are all loving them! One friend actually called me the next day to tell me the lip balm is 'the bomb' and feels like butter on her lips (this seriously happened!)
