Right now, I'm using Burt's Bees, although when this one runs out I want to get something that's 100% vegan. I've always had a problem with dry lips, and was put onto Burt's Bees originally after someone was telling me about how ChapStik, Blistex, etc. put little pieces of fiberglass in their products so that was you have to reapply more and but a new one more often.<br><br>
I know I'm going to probably have to order it online as I'm in a rural area, and that's OK. I just need a good lip balm that's fabulous for moisturizing with zero animal products or animal testing. Thanks!

Merry Hempsters! They're super smooth! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><a href="http://www.iherb.com/Merry-Hempsters" target="_blank">http://www.iherb.com/Merry-Hempsters</a><br><br>
I've tried cinnamon and orange so far. Cinnamon makes the lips tingly. Someone I know ordered lemon-lime and they love it. I'd like to get vanilla and spearmint when I'm out. We got free jam and cocoa mix samples with our order.

Crazy Rumors are sooo good! Merry Hempsters are good and EcoLips makes good ones too. You can also use plain coconut oil (it works nicely).<br><br>
Also: Make your own! Not all essential oils are okay for lip/skin application, so do some research... <a href="http://www.ehow.com/how_4450466_make-vegan-lip-balm.html" target="_blank">http://www.ehow.com/how_4450466_make...-lip-balm.html</a>

Just browsed Crazy Rumors and offhand their flavor selection definitely looks more impressive.

<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> That is exactly what I want!!<br>
I love the taste and smell of coffee SO much! More than even drinking it!<br><br>
P.s. I use Merry Hempsters cinnamon, which I like a lot. No store around me sells vanilla-though they have all the rest! I've tried lemon-lime and don't like it at all. It's not sweet, not tart, just meh..<br>
If you find Merry Hempsters in a store be aware that they make both vegan and non vegan (bees wax). I thought they were all vegan, and the second time I bought the bees wax one. very stupid for them to make it, because the texture is really bad, more like what i remember original chapstick. The vegan is really smooth, not at all sticky.

Yeah, I think beeswax may have been making my lips worse in hindsight. I have a severe allergy to pollen, and bees dive into the stuff all the time.

Crazy Rumors is one of the best balms I've ever used, vegan or not, and I'm a huge product junkie. I own the entire Brew collection, plus Candy Cane. My favorite is Apple Spice.

For those of you that get Crazy Rumors, do you buy in bulk, or what? I've been wanting to try their product, but I can't justify paying $6.00 for the shipping of one lip balm. My income is very infrequent. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Another vote for Crazy Rumors. There's a UK brand, Yaoh that I like as well. Merry Hempsters is often dry, ime, but I know lots of folks love it. Lush has some nice stuff, but they have lots of nasties in some of their products too (parabens and the like) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I love Crazy Rumors too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Their lip balms are really moisturizing and make my lips much softer, but not overly greasy or shiny. The lip balm also seems to stay on quite long so I don't need to constantly re-apply. Probably the best lip balms I've tried.<br><br>
Yaoh is pretty good too, but it seems less moisturizing than Crazy Rumors. I have to apply it more often and if my lips have already gotten really dry it doesn't always seem to help enough. I still think it's a good lip balm though. The blueberry flavor smells delicious!<br><br>
Most lip balms from My Lip Stuff contain beeswax, but she has some vegan lip balms too. I've tried the flavors Cool Under Pressure and A Little S&M. The latter smells great and actually even tastes super sweet. Definitely one of the best flavors I've ever tried (despite the name). They're nicely moisturizing too. One slightly negative thing is that those lip balms are very soft (unless in cool temperature) and easy apply too much. But at least they taste really good so you can just lick the excess off. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I bought 5 at once! But I'm a lip balm junkie and like to keep them everywhere: nightstand, desk, purse, coffee table, makeup bag, etc.<br><br>
ETA: I should mention that although I love almost every flavor I've tried, the Peppermint Lemongrass one irritated my lips (and I am NOT sensitive to makeup or beauty products usually at all.) It really dried them out and chapped them badly. All the other flavors I've tried have worked great though.

I can vouch for Merry Hempsters as well. My husband and I got the Vanilla lip balm and LOVE it! It works very well and has a VERY yummy smell. We also got their Tattoo balm stuff, which also works great as an alternative to Neosporin
