Hurraw! Orange Lip Balm - Review*

Hurraw! Balm started out of pure intent; 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. They source honest, fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers and are thrilled to share the labours with other balm lovin' individuals. Your purchase also supports legit fair trade, organic farmers and suppliers in the States and around the World. They're also gluten free, soy free and shea free, as well as containing no petroleum, parabens, preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. And with a wide range of flavours from Orange to Earl Grey and Lemon to Chai Spice, you're bound to find a flavour that you'll love.

Super juicy, sun-ripened oranges are what this balm is all about. One swipe of our creamy orange balm will bring a smile to your lips. We use not one, but two varieties of fresh cold pressed orange peel oil which pretty much makes this balm the bomb.

The second product that I decided to review from MyPure this month was this delicious sounding Hurraw! Orange Lip Balm. I really love how thick this lip balm is, as it makes my lips feel really moisturised when the balm has been applied. I found the balm itself stayed on my lips for a good half an hour after applying the product, this meant I did need to reapply if needed again though. The smell of this lip balm is lovely, very subtle but sweet enough to smell it after applying. I also love the shape of the balms packaging as they're specifically made to not slip out of your pocket, which I think is a great idea. Hurraw! have a massive range of different flavoured lip balms and I can't wait to try more of them.

The first product that I decided I would like to review from MyPure this month, was this fresh looking Daily Cucumber Moisturiser for sensitive skin from Yes To. I've always found a good facial moisturiser difficult to come by due to my oily skin. Surprisingly, this Yes To moisturiser nearly ticks all of my boxes! Firstly, the smell of this product is lovely it's not too strong or overpowering as it has a very fresh scent of cucumbers. I wouldn't say my skin is overly sensitive but it can get quite dry sometimes. I feel that this product helps my dry areas without being too heavy or oily. The only reason why it didn't tick all of my boxes, is that when you apply the product it can feel a little sticky afterwards, it did end up soaking into my skin which stopped this feeling.
