Valentine’s Day Natural Lip Balm Giveaway

Why does winter always make me think of my skin?  And personal care.  Could it be that winter’s when your body needs the attention the most?

Well, my body was lucky to get to spend a few days in Florida last weekend.  It was such a welcome break!  It was good for my attitude and – bonus(!) my skin.

Hmm, what can I do to keep this feeling?  Perhaps a nice body oil or natural lip balm?

Of course, I am major picky about using good natural products.   I remember when I first discovered the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database and rating system.  My lip balm came out so high I almost fainted!  And then I learned some lipsticks even contain lead (per the FDA)!  

Products were flying into garbage cans right and left. 

Since then I use a lot of products made by small companies. I love the natural goodness, the variety and supporting small businesses! A favorite is Beessential which I reviewed a couple years ago. I drop their lip balms into my kids’ Christmas stockings every year. This year I picked up an extra 5-pack for one lucky reader.  ‘Cause who wouldn’t want soft lips for Valentine’s day 🙂  

If you are picky about what you put in your body and on it, check out the EWG!  And maybe the giveaway below!

    Really can’t say that I like winter but I do like Christmas…which falls into the category of winter I suppose:)

    I like how it is much colder in the winter because at my age, I am always hot, wearing shorts around the house all, the time and only sweatshirts out, lol also love when it snows, just not how long it lasts in NH. And lip balm would definitely help with the cold out here and one would say I’m obsessed with lip balms. Thanks for this chance

    The best thing about winter is that it is not in the 90-100 degrees outside anymore and you can go outside and just stay nice and cool.

  4. kelly woods

    I don’t like winter. We don’t get snow. If we got snow I would probably like it a little bit better.

  5. Lisa V.

    I’m actually not a big fan of winter. However, what I do like is that my husband and I can typically travel to most places (as long as they aren’t ski areas) in the wintertime without the crowds that can be present at other times of the year. Love that! And as a result, I often take most of my vacation time in the winter now.

  6. Kristen Dingess

    I love the look of the trees with all of the snow covering the branches! I love enjoying a hot cup of cocoa on a cold winter day. I love the adorable boots I get to wear! LOL!

  7. Kim Myers

    What I like about winter is that now that I moved to South Carolina from New York, Winters are like fall here. It’s not too bad at all.

  10. Pam C.

    What I like best about winter is that I moved to Florida so that I don’t have to deal with the cold weather. After years in Michigan and Virginia – I enjoy the warm winters.

  11. Diana S.

    One thing I love about winter is having the fireplace going. It’s childhood memories, but sadly we don’t have a fireplace right now. B ut also being able to drink hot chocolate without anyone looking at you crazy cos you’re drinking hot chocolate in the hot humid summer days, lol.

    I actually love winter hikes! I’m in NJ so it’s super cold, but I like still getting out there in the woods.

  34. Regina

    I like the snow when it is one that is light and fluffy and does not stick to the roads. Thanks.

  35. Traci Pape

    What I like most about winter is the pretty snowfall, warm fireplaces, Christmas with my family, hot cocoa, warm fuzzy pajamas, all the quality time I spend with my family cause its too cold to go outside.

  42. Gabrielle V

    I love how quiet it is outside on a cold, winter night. It seems so much quieter than it does during the rest of the year.

  44. jenny stratton

    I really love snow as long as I can stay inside in front of a fire. I like that it is cold enough to have a fire.

  45. Nicole

    I am such a winter person that I cannot think of much that I don’t like about it. I love the way the trees look after a snowfall. I love snowboarding, and warm pajamas, and how everything you want to wear is soft and warm and fuzzy.

  46. Dana Rodriguez

    It rarely snows where I live in SC and the winters are pretty mild. I enjoy the cooler temperatures plus the lack of humidity and mosquitoes!

    What I like best about winter is cozying up on my couch with a fuzzy blanket and a good book!

  48. Johannah

    I like the cold. I know most people don’t – but I hate the heat of summer. Plus summer means allergies – which are so much less annoying during winter.

  49. Daisy

    I like the beauty of it. The gently falling snow, the branches arching under the ice that crystallizes them, and the tracks of wildlife painting a picture across the vast, empty canvas of whiteness before us. Oh yeah, and I like that the beauty of winter can bring out the poet in anyone, haha! 😉

  50. Marjie

    I love snow. I don’t even mind driving in it–I just mind other drivers who don’t know how. (No, I don’t have a 4WD vehicle.)

  51. Alison Watson

    My favorite thing about winter is when it snows overnight, and I wake up to frosted trees. It’s like a fairy tale! (Especially if I can stay home and enjoy it 🙂 )

  52. Audrey Stewart

    To be honest, I don’t like winter at all. I see in your pictures you are at the beach. My cats don’t like the winter either. My car also hates it.
