Review: Hurraw! Balm Lip Balm and Tinted Lip Balm

When I first set out to test vegan lip balms, I thought they would all be pretty similar. Whether they come in a jar or a tube, lip balms seem to have few distinguishing qualities. I was delighted to discover that all these years I had been wrong; there was one lip balm that was different than the rest: Hurraw!

  • Buttery texture
  • Comes in a variety of fun flavors
  • Hip, stylish packaging
  • Oval tube
  • Simple, organic and raw ingredients
  • Vegan and gluten-free
  • May be hard to find locally

I absolutely adore the texture of this balm. I suspect it has something to do with the raw ingredients, but it goes on much more easily than other balms and practically melts into your lips. It is very hydrating and every flavor I've tried smells great. Unlike many drugstore brands, there's nothing artificial about these flavors. The only flavor I wasn't wild about was the cinnamon, as I'm not much for "tingly" balms and plumpers. Otherwise, I liked the variety, and also the tinted balms. The tints are sheer and subtle, softly enhancing your lips as opposed to calling them out in a way that requires lip liner.

I ran a couple of the flavors through the EWG Skin Deep database, where they rated around a 0-1, about as low as you can get. With so many organic ingredients, it is no surprise that these balms are so gentle. While Hurraw! is carried in several retail locations, particularly American Apparel stores, I recommend ordering online for the best selection. The balms are reasonably priced, especially considering the quality of the ingredients. I grab a few whenever I find them in my travels, as Hurraw! is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite balms.
