When it comes to our middle-school years, we purposely have a bit of a selective memory (oh, growing pains). But, there's one scent that brings it all back: the sweet, sweet smell of soda-flavored lip balm. From grades six through eight, that gleaming tube was permanently glued to the inside of our pockets. But, like our bout with braces, our infatuation with soda-scented balm eventually ended — and, until now, we thought it was over for good.
Cue Hurraw!, an all-natural, organic, vegan, raw, good-enough-to-eat lip-balm company. Its root-beer balm has made its way into our life, and — mark our words — this is one soda scent that's here to stay. Spicy and creamy (just like a good, old-fashioned root-beer float), this balm is, well, the bomb. We found ourselves licking our lips with glee as we re-acquainted ourselves with this tingly treatment. No way junior high could have been that bad.
But, unlike our childhood favorite, Hurraw!'s yummy version (and the rest of its 20+ product line) is handcrafted using ingredients like seeds, fruit zests, barks, and roots for flavor and natural color. And, did we mention it's packaged in an oval tube? Not only does this shapely size allow for extra product, but, as the brand proudly states, it's totally popping-out-of-pocket proof. (There's no escaping us now, root-beer balm!)
Needless to say, we're all about this grown-up, good-for-you take on the lip product that stood by us through our in-between years. And, now, we can't wait to make some new memories with Hurraw!'s soda-flavored balm. Not a root beer fan? The brand has plenty of great flavors to choose from. Earl grey, coconut and lemongrass, or black cherry anyone?
