Epic Blend Vegan Lip Balms Review!

PR Sample

Hey Girls,

Epic Blend is a Canadian lip balm brand that makes organic and vegan lip balms in a variety of flavors and all are petroleum-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and cruelty-free. They kindly and generously sent me a few (read ten) of their lip balms to test and write about. Holy Grail! They were so generous and I couldn’t believe they sent me ten of their flavors which will last for a year now. I have been using it for two three weeks and let’s get started with the review!

My Take on the Product:

Their balms come in three categories which are:
Hemp – Organic Hemp Seed Oil is a great anti-oxidant, super-nourishing and quickly absorbs deep into the skin cells.

More Moisture – Seven moisturizers, including Organic Shea Butter come together to provide an extra kick of moisture plus a boost of staying power.
Vegan – 100% plant-based and beeswax-free.  We use all-natural food grade Candelilla wax, which gives these balms an incredibly smooth texture.
They also have a Tinted Lip Balm in Garnet Star, which is sheer yet slightly shimmery maroon shade. On light lips, it might turn a sheer red too.
The lip balms are housed in a traditional retractable plastic tube which is sturdy and compact. These are travel friendly and can be popped into the handbag. The packaging looks cool and attractive. The whole set looks colourful and bright in the packaging. The lipblams are colour coded. As you see in the images above, each flavor is differentiated by a separate colour. Each flavor has a scent associated with it. Each tube comes with its description, ingredients and all the required information which is great.

The garnet star tinted lip balm comes with a nice punch of colour. The balms look rich and thick consistency and texture wise. These are super soft and glide on easily in a creamy manner. These balms are extremely moisturising and hydrating. They are powerful enough to cure dry cracked lips in winters. These are flavoured lip balms, but there are no added sweeteners. Just all natural goodness!

The top shelf ingredients are all natural and completely safe. The scent is fruity and pleasant. The scent is also quite natural. These balms smell and taste so yummy that you would want to lick or eat them. Trust me these lipblams have become so addictive.
They do not feel heavy in lips and do not leave a white residue on the lip. These lipblams are perfect for lip prep, for wearing underneath a lipstick that might have a drying formula without altering the base product. These lip balms are non-greasy and totally not oily feeling.
These balms are multi taskers and can be used as cuticle balms even. I love the fact that there are no artificial additions, tint or glitters. I use them to keep my lips moisturised all the time. Whenever I want a slight shade to the lips, I go for the Garnet Star Lip Balm by Epic Blend.
Some of the flavors give a nice cooling sensation on lips due to the presence of mint. These lip balms are unique and they are a good change from the standard balms I use.
The variety is very good and now my lip balms are lying in a number of places like Dining table, my office desk, handbag, bed side table, makeup table, bathroom, kitchen and the good thing is that you get your lipblams where ever you go within an arm’s reach. This happens when you own too many lipblams.
Pros:
  • Variety
  • Fruity scent and flavours
  • Natural safe ingredients
  • Moisturising and super hydrating
  • Glides quickly and absorbed easily
  • Satin smooth and soft

  • Convinient and handy
  • Compact and sturdy
  • Tube packaging is hygienic
  • Cooling sensation
  • Vegan – gluten-free, paraben-free and cruelty-free
  • No added sweeteners or preservatives
  • Unisex balms
  • Non gooey unique formula

Cons:
  • No SPF
  • Expensive than your usual lip balms but so worth it
  • These are made of natural ingredients and they last only for 12 months once you open the pack but the shelf life is 18 months.

Overall thoughts:

They’re good basic lip balms that do what they claim – moisturize. The products are gluten free, paraben free, not tested on animals, free of preservatives, and only the best organic ingredients go in to each lip balm. My lips are super hydrated and these lipblams have become my beloved ones now. I love all the flavors but if I had to pick atleast a favourite, it would be cherry and grape. The Epic Blend lipblams are really epic! It is a shame if we don’t own atleast one.
Looking for a petroleum free lip balm or are you a lip balm junkie like me, be sure to check out Epic Blend.
