Antipodes Organic Lip Balm with Lime Leaf & Cocoa Butter Review

Antipodes was kind enough to send me this lip balm to try and review.  I am so glad they did!  As I've mentioned time and time again, I love lip balms! 

Claim: A creamy, moisturizing and organic lip balm which features olive oil, cocoa butter and lime to condition your lips and shine your smile! Perfect for everyday application.

I will say, I dislike the smell and taste.  It's definitely cocoa butter with a hint of lime which almost tastes like dish soap (no, I have not tried dish soap!).  That's what it tastes like to me.  I'm not a fan of cocoa butter scents in general though, so perhaps that's why I don't enjoy the scent.  Aside from that, I adore it and it is truly a pleasure to use.  It is SOOOOOOO creamy and moisturizing.  I spent the day playing frisbee with my boyfriend, a few weeks ago, and my lips got so chapped from the sun.  I was too lazy to reapply my Hurraw! SPF balm (serves me right).  This totally brought them back to life overnight.  I use this whenever my lips feel dry and right before bed.  I am in love with it.  The packaging is pretty basic, I would love to see it look as good as their skin care packaging.  I will definitely purchase this whenever I use this tube all up.  It's a definite must have for me now.

Retails for approx. $7.00 CAN.  Check out for more info.  Can be found at Whole Foods,, and
