I just finished a killer Cardio boxing workout. I almost forgot how much I actually like the Cardio Boxing routine on my Xbox. I really should try to play it more often! I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to tie that in with this lip balm review. So I'm just going to dive right into it.
Free Range Chicken Poop Lip Junk Claims:
The Name....Chicken Poop comes from Jamie's goofy grandpa replying to her complaint of having chapped lips. He'd say, "I know how to fix those chapped lips, I'll rub some chicken poop on `em so you won't be lickin` 'em." Brilliant, don't you think?
A brief history. . . How it all began: Jamie Faith Tabor Schmidt began making Chicken Poop Lip balm after her best friend Claudia took her to a cosmetic store lined from floor to ceiling with all kinds of make-up goodness. She decided then and there she would have a product line by the age of 25. Good gravy, a hair pomade, was the first product she came up with. Requests came flying in for a lip balm. So, in 2000 Jamie developed Chicken Poop. She has seven other products in the making. The next to market will be Kill It Dead, a natural spray deodorant.
I don't find the story behind the name to be that clever...Maybe it's just me? Anyway....
I found this in Bed, Bath, and Beyond awhile ago and was immediately drawn to the name. Who would name a lip product "chicken poop"? The name is very strange but that's what made me turn it over and read the ingredients....which are excellent and contain no poop! Can you imagine a lip balm with chicken droppings? Ewww.
It was two dollars and some change, and certainly cheaper than most of the other natural lip balms I've come across like Burt's Bees, Acure, and on and on. As soon as I got it home, I swiped some on. It's very hydrating- but not very smoothing, if that makes sense. I was most skeptical of the scent. But it just smells like lavender with a bit of orange mixed in. I actually really love the scent. Who knew lavender and orange mixed so well?
What I really like about this balm is that it doesn't disappear and leave my lips dry. I really hate those balms that are nice when you have them on, but as soon as they wear off your lips feel drier than the Sahara. It's not overly greasy either and works quite nicely under lipsticks etc.
It's not tested on animals, which is always a good thing! I like beauty products that are cruelty free. And it's made in the U.S.
I like the ingredients. I don't think I've come across a lip balm that's main ingredient is avocado oil.
Contains NO POOP
Avocado Oil, Beeswax,, Jojoba Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Sweet Orange Essential Oi, Vitamin E
In conclusion, I really like it and would recommend it to anyone.
