Things I Love: Crazy Rumors Lip Balms

Since I admitted to you all last summer that I'm addicted to lip balm I think I've become even more addicted!  I bought some vegan, all natural, and almost 100% organic lip balm by Crazy Rumors in the Lemonade flavor.  It was so yummy that when I used it all up I asked my mother-in-law to bring me more at Thanksgiving!
The one in the fridge
Originally there were four citrus flavors in the store: lemonade, orange juice, pink grapefruit, and limeade.  What I didn't know is these are just one set of 7 they make!  I do love citrus and I'm not sure I would have been as tempted to buy them if this particular store had the other flavors, but I have been converted!

See, the story goes, at Christmas I went and bought the rest of the flavors in the Fresh Squeezed set.  Limeade quickly became my favorite, but I left it out on the bathroom counter and my dear son smooshed it.  I wasn't willing to give it up so I put it all back in the barrel and it now lives in the refrigerator so I can still use it!

The one the hubby doesn't like to kiss
Then, since I wasn't going to Oregon for awhile I noticed there was a website on the tube and looked them up online.  Unfortunately no one in our area carries them, but you can order them online!  I wasn't quite willing to pay shipping for one or two tubes, but they were nice enough to send me a couple of new flavors to try!

I am a big fan of all things Apple Spice so this one from the Brew collection sounded yummy, and it is!  It smells like mulled cider tea and I love it!  Unfortunately my husband is NOT a fan of this flavor in any form so I try not to wear it when he's around.  Or else it's payback when he's had a beer and I don't want to kiss him don't like his breath!

The one the hubby does like!
I also wanted to try Raspberry Sherbet from the A La Mode collection (all ice cream flavors!) and found out later that this one is their best seller.  I can certainly see why!  It's not too sweet, but definitely the right raspberry flavor!

And finally, on my wish list, they have a line of lip balms with natural mineral color added called HibisKiss.  The name is so cute and I would try any of the pink/red colors!

Next item on my wish list!
I'm trying to convince my local health food store that they need to carry these products, but until then I'll just have to stock up on our twice annual trip to Oregon!  They recently revamped their website so the store locator is currently down, but check back soon to see if they're in stock near you!  Or just contact the owners, they're great about getting back to you, especially on facebook!

Crazy Rumors provided me with the 2 new lip balms to try out, but obviously my love for them is all my own!

I have not heard of these lip balms before. I will have to keep an eye out for them.

I am visiting from TILT at the Diaper Diaries. I hope you have a great evening!
