My Lip Stuff Review & Giveaway


Have you ever had Cheese Pizza or Mimosa flavored Lip Balm before?
I'm hungry just by reading some of the flavors of My Lip Stuff lip balm! My Lip Stuff has over 400 flavors of natural lip balm. I know you will find multiple flavors that you would love to try! My Lip Stuff is dedicated to skin, earth and animal friendly products. Not only do they have the huge selection of lip balm flavors, they also make all kinds of natural bath items as well! My Lip Stuff lip balms can also be personalized for events, parties, and birthdays.

The story behind My Lip Stuff!
My Lip Stuff began many years ago, back in 1999 as a hobby. My name is Brea, I'm the creator of My Lip Stuff (feel free to call me the lip balm goddess, lippy lord, or your royal Breaness works too). I decided to make my own lip balms after watching an episode of Martha Stewart about hand made lotions and toiletries. Being a Vegan, I knew 'natural' was the product for me, so I began to research natural butters and oils to find the perfect ingredients for the perfect lip balm. After many many many many many (did I say many?) recipes, I finally came up with a recipe that I fell in love with and "My Lip Stuff" was born. It started with just personal use (a lip balm addict from birth with a nasty tube a week (at least) habit), and eventually moved onto Birthday and Christmas gifts. By 2000, friends and family were loving "My Lip Stuff" and it was turning into a mini word of mouth business. 

In 2001, I was in the beginning of a very difficult 'bed rest only' pregnancy and was unable to work (I was formerly a foreign and english languages teacher). As I lay there, I thought about developing My Lip Stuff into more than just a small business with only lip products, and into a full fledged business with many different bath and body products. In June of 2001, the unexpected happened, and I became VERY ill. The doctors had no choice but to deliver the baby by emergency c-section. So after only 5 months of pregnancy, I gave birth to a 1 pound 1 ounce premature little boy. 4 long months in the hospital by my sons side gave me A LOT of time to develop My Lip Stuff into My Lip Stuff & Other Stuff! I quickly realized that life would never be the same, and that working a "normal" 9-5 job like most people do, would be impossible for this single parent with a special needs child. My Lip Stuff needed to be developed into a fully functional business and online store to support myself and my disabled child, so the My Lip Stuff & Other Stuff online store was offically open for business!

Fast forward another 8+ years and I am still a single parent, working around the clock (seriously, who needs sleep!) to bring you My Lip Stuff and Other Stuff. I also find the time to homeschool my Autistic/special needs child who is now 8 years old (and who is also addicted to My Lip Stuff!). My Lip Stuff continues to be a thriving online store, with a 1000 sq ft "factory" where the magic happens! Our mission is still the same: to create products that are skin, earth, and animal friendly. We stuck to our roots and still handmake all our products in very small batches to ensure freshness. The end result is plain and simple- My Lip Stuff is serious lip care with a fun flair, for the kid (albeit the responsible kid) in all of us.

My Lip Stuff Experience!

I love flavored lip balms, however, I really can not find a brand that I really like until now. Some are too waxy or sticky and just feel yucky after I have put them on. My Lip Stuff is my favorite flavored lip balm now! I was sent a 6 pack of a variety of flavors: Apple Brown Betty, Shamrock Shake, Candy Corn Buttercream, Kitty Litter Cake, Rainbow Sherbet and Pumpkin Pie. All of the flavors are so true to what you'd expect them to smell like. The lip balms are so silky smooth and wear well. I am very impressed with the quality of My Lip Stuff! My favorite of all the flavors is a tie between the Kitty Litter Cake and the Shamrock Shake. The Shamrock Shake smells like a minty-vanilla, reminds me of a lip balm I used to get as a child, but I can not remember the name of it! I'm 29, is there anyone out there who knows what I might be talking about? I'm happy to find a natural lip balm that smells and feels great! Brea has done a great job formulating My Lip Stuff!
