Love it: delicious, all good Hurraw! Lip balm


My earliest memories of applying lip balm all involve taste and smell, usually of the Bonnie Bell, cherry-tastic variety! As I’ve got older I’ve moved more towards the organic, or at least all natural versions, which are usually at a more premium price and often without the sensorial benefits.
I was over the moon then to discover the delicious Hurraw! range of lip smacking treats as they make it their mission
to merge these two extremes. Their line of handmade lip balms has everything I’ve grown to love about the more earnest, expensive expensive brands - fair trade, raw and organic 
ingredients - along with the affordable price and delish scents of my old school favorites….  it's never been easier or cheaper 
to get the best of both worlds. Hurraw! to that!
The creators of Hurraw! started with a personal obsession to create the perfect balm: all natural, vegan, made from premium raw, organic and fair trade ingredients... 
complete with a bunch of natural and fun flavour options. It also had to meet some tough criteria i.e. “super smooth, not draggy, not sticky, not sweet, not too glossy, not too smelly, never grainy, long lasting”, and it had to hold up to being in a back jeans pocket all day without melting!
After several years they came up with the little charmer that I carry obsessively now, and still individually pour each tube of Hurraw! Balm in their own facility. They have worked hard to source honest, fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers and say they are “thrilled to share the labours of our hard work with other balm lovin' individuals”. How nice is that?
I get mine from the fabulous www.ohnatural.co.nz online store where you’ll find Hurraw! alongside plenty of other treats to totally fall in love with. Stop by and have a peek - I guarantee you won’t leave with an empty cart…
