I have been using the S.W. Basics Lip Balm in Peppermint ($4) for almost eight weeks and am satisfied with this product. I'm 55 years old, and I use the balm as part of my morning beauty/makeup routine. It provides a good and even moisture cushion under my lip pencil, lipstick and lip gloss. While my skin is oily, my lips tend to be dry and they crack easily — probably because I use a lot of lip colors. One application of the S.W. Basics Lip Balm soaks in and lasts all morning. 

I am always eager to replace a beauty product with another that is organic. However, I won't make that substitution unless I get the same quality and results.  S.W. Basics Lip Balm in Peppermint has only four ingredients — cocoa butter, extra-virgin coconut oil, beeswax and peppermint essential oil — and all of these ingredients are fair-trade.  The "fragrance" of this lip balm is a little off, but that's not the point of using this product, and the bottom line is that it works! At $4 each, this is a product I will continue to use and feel good about using it.
