Hurraw! Black Cherry Lip Balm

It’s the secret weapon of natural beauties. A little tube of perfection, stashed in a tiny back pocket or at the bottom of a giant bag full of god knows what else. Vegan, of course. Organic, bien sur. Fair trade? Yes, indeed. And raw, to retain optimal skin-soothing benefits.

Smooth a little on your lips for hours of softness from wildcrafted, cold-pressed coconut, sweet almond and jojoba seed oils, blended with natural seed butters into a base of candelilla wax.

To be honest, Black Cherry is just one of six Hurraw! balms that we’re obsessed with. But this one has super powers.

Infused with the juice of sweet cherries hand-picked in Montana, the balm is perfectly tinted to give you just a hint of sheer red color on lips or—in a pinch—the apples of your cheeks.

It’s the kind of color you get when you walk out of hot yoga or a hot date. Flushed. Sexy. Naturally beautiful. And with Hurraw! Black Cherry, you can apply it anywhere—with or without a mirror.

Did we mention it tastes like cherries, too? Because with a lip balm this perfect, you’ll probably want to share.

Argan, Take Me Away!

Summer’s over—so why are you still using that lightweight moisturizer? As the weather changes from warm and humid to brisk and dry, your skincare should transition, too. And for that, my friends, you need argan oil.

But not just any Argan oil! Fair trade, organic, made in Morocco, Amal Argan Oil is extracted by hand from argan seeds in a time- and labor-intensive process that takes about 20 hours to produce one liter of oil. It’s fragrance and preservative free—as perfect as nature intended.

Rich in vitamin E and boasting one of the highest absorption rates of any natural oil, argan is super hydrating but won’t clog your pores. Argan is a miracle worker to remedy the effects of too much sun (and too little sunscreen). It can soothe eczema and psoriasis—and if you’re pregnant, it makes a perfect stretch mark cream. You can also massage Amal Argan Oil into the ends of dry hair as a treatment, onto your nails to prevent cracked cuticles, and on lips to keep them soft and smackable. Gorgeous!
