Flavors: Lemon-Lime, Superfruit, Sweet Mint
Eco Lips is a popular lip balm made specifically to be vegan-friendly.
Personally, it’s my pick for best overall vegan lip balm, because every aspect of the product is strong.
I’d like to go into more detail about it here in this review.
Ingredient Quality and Effectiveness
Let’s start by taking a look at the ingredients of a typical Eco Lips stick.:
Sunflower seed oil, candelilla wax, cocoa butter, coconut oil, peppermint oil, spearmint oil, vitamin E, rosemary leaf extract, calendula flower extract, stevia
All are from vegan sources, and there’s no sketchy or controversial ingredients like petroleum in it.
It has a variety of oil sources, which all contribute to the product’s effectiveness in different ways:
- Sunflower seed oil
- Coconut oil
- Peppermint oil
- Spearmint oil
Despite having fairly simple ingredients, it works really well, and lasts a fairly long time. You won’t have to re-apply it every 30 minutes like some others.
I’ve seen very few cases of where someone didn’t like the smell of it, or didn’t find it effective.
You won’t find many better lip balms (especially vegan ones) that do a better job..
Relative Price of Eco Lips
I don’t consider the price of lip balm to be a huge deal because each stick lasts so long (provided you don’t lose it).
However, it can still be a factor.
Eco Lips is cheaper than almost every other vegan lip balm, despite being as high quality or better.
The price fluctuates, and it depends where you buy it, but you’ll usually end up paying around $3 per stick.
Compare that to another highly rated vegan option like Hurraw, which often goes for $7 or higher per stick.
Summary of Eco Lips Lip Balm
Clearly I’m a big fan of Eco Lips.
It works well, has high quality vegan ingredients, and is reasonably priced as well.
