Sometimes a product is so great that I am at a loss as to where to start when it comes to writing about it. How do I decide what aspects of the product is so good to mention first? This is one of those times…
If you haven’t already come across Hurraw! balms, then you are definitely missing out, on a gem of the lip balm world.

Because there are so many different balms, it is impossible to list them all and their individual qualities, however I will mention (some of) the many things that make Hurraw! balms brilliant.
They are… (wait for it) organic, vegan and animal friendly, fair trade, handmade, gluten free, non-toxic and free from petroleum, genetically modified ingredients, preservatives, colours, flavours and parabens. The oval shaped packaging is recyclable (depending on your local recycling collector) and also designed to be back-pocket friendly i.e. not fall out.
Just as you thought it couldn’t get any better, they feel great on the lip too. The balms glide on the lip easily without drag and don’t feel grainy, sticky or like you have an oil slick on your on your mouth.
What is unusual about the Hurraw! balms and differentiates them from other brands is that they contain raw and cold-pressed ingredients. This means that many of the ingredients have been processed at temperatures below 118°F (approximately 47°C), ensuring they retain their essential nutrients and enzymes, so that your lips are well cared for.
Hurraw! Balms are priced at around £4.99 for a 4.3g tube.
Hurraw! Balm is based amongst the peaks of the Glacier National Park in Montana, USA. They started out of pure intent, with a personal obsession to create the perfect balm: all natural, vegan, made from premium raw, organic and fair trade ingredients.
