Grown Organic Apothecary sent me their lip balm and facial oil, and I must say~ they both rock. Us girls, we’re always on the lookout for the perfect lip balm, right? Grown’s Lip Balm is right there, I’ll tell ya. Like a cashmere sweater for your kisser, so soft and comforting. And the texture, oy, the texture~ like a buttercream pashmina! Contains watermelon seed oil, so it has a watermelon-y vanilla-y smell going on. How did two dudes do this? Aussie brothers Keston and Jeremy Muijs have their formulations down ladies, so look out! And did I mention packaging? You know how important packaging is to Tonie~ me like it to look pretty in my bathroom. These are old school apothecary style, with the lip balm in little metal tubes that you pierce open with the cap, and etched glass dropper bottles for the oil. Brill! The Facial Serum is a luxe mix of borage, rosehip, and sea-buckthorn berry oils, scented with green, stemmy lavender. Really envelopes skin in a veil of lasting moisture. These products are so cool, try ‘em and see!
