TerraTints are naturally tinted lip balms that leave your lips feeling soft and supple while providing a subtle hue.  The all natural ingredients  are important as what you use on your lips will inevitably end up in your mouth.

ing:  Hydrogenated coconut oil, beeswax, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, ricinus communis (castor) seed and olea europaea (olive) fruit oils, iron oxides, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, tocopherol and tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), natural flavor, mica, calendula officinalis flower and echinacea purpurea extracts, titanium dioxide and glycine soja (soybean) oil.

I have always been a fan of tinted lip balms.  I am notorious for losing my lip sticks so I tend not to purchase the more expensive brands and the cheap ones leave my lips feeling dry.  Tinted lip balms do a great job of sealing and protecting the lips while adding a dash of color.  I keep them in my purse, my desk, my makeup bag and on my dresser so I always have one available.

I saw the TerraTints at the check-out stand of Rainbow Blossoms and decided to try it.  I liked that the ingredients were natural,  the Kona color matched my natural lip color and used iron oxide as the colorant which I thought was cool.  I have two different colored lips: my top lip is brown and the bottom lip is pink.  When I was younger I was really self-conscious of this (silly, I know) and would always look for a tinted lip balm that would match my natural lip tone.

TerraTints come in a variety of colors although I am in love with Kona I will probably try Sienna or Blaze next.  The balm has pepermint oil which gives a nice cool feeling and is rated SPF18 for protection from the sun’s harmful rays.  TerraTints are a great product to have around for lip care and provide a little pop of color.
