Eco-Sensual Balm: Peacekeeper

Here's an old joke: What does a beauty products company that donates all of its after-tax profits to women’s health advocacy and urgent human rights issues sell?


The company's name is Peacekeeper and they really do use the tag "cause-metics" as well as the motto "Deep healing for your lips and the world". Indeed. They make all sorts of natural products, one of which is the Eco-Sensual Lip Balm, which won one of Self Magazine's 2008 Health Beauty Awards.

Price: $3.18 on the site, $4.00 at places like Urban Outfitters.

Appearance: Standard size, clear tube, there it is on the right.

Glide: Easy, smooth, slightly greasy.

Flavor/Smell: Miiinty! That great "real" from-the-sprig mint smell that wakes you right up. No sweetness.

Lasing Power: Softens really well, but doesn't last longer than about an hour.

Product Pluses: 100% vegan, cruelty free, all natural, profits to a good cause.

3.5 out of 5 tubes. Does the job decently but lacks strong performance or any zazz. I like my lip balms with jazz hands.
