Lip Butters Are the New Lip Balm

Pictured from left to right: a smaller, sample-size lip butter next to the full sized version.

Now we’re not saying our lips are demanding but, well, they’re a little demanding. Especially during the fall and winter, when colder temperatures and overzealous radiators conspire to dehydrate the skin all over our body. That’s when we start swapping our usual lip glosses for something more heavy duty. 

Lately, I’ve bypassed balms in favor of butters. Specifically Mox Botanicals’ lip butters. Our beauty partnerships team discovered the Portland-based brand earlier this spring and fell in love with their artisanal balms. They’re loaded with some of nature’s most powerful moisturizers, including shea and avocado butters, as well as meadowfoam seed and jojoba oil. Unsurprisingly, there are no parabens, chemical preservatives, or harmful additives. 

We were so smitten with the formula that we convinced Mox to create a flavor just for us. After much testing (we had to make sure we l-o-v-e-d it, after all!), we settled on Pomegranate & Fig, a delicious blend that is just right for fall. I’m relying on it to keep my finicky lips flake-free all winter.
