- Easy To Find And Where? ACureOrganics.com, and some Whole Foods Markets (my WF's in NJ didn't have it).
- Acquired: Sent to me by Acure Organics to review.
- Customer Service: I spoke to Kelly B., who was really great and answered all of my questions ASAP! What I like the most about the company is that (unlike so many "Pinkwashing" companies out there) they DO NOT use any suspected carcinogens in their products! Finally, a company who "Get's It"! All of Acure's products contain at least a minimum of 70% organic ingredients and many of their products are completely USDA Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certified or both! They are also Vegan, Gluten Free, Sulfate Free, Cruelty Free, Paraben Free, PEG Free, Petroleum Free, Phthalate Free, Silicone Free, contains no Mineral Oil or Synthetic Fragrances which is AWESOME! Please see my Review of their Facial Cleansing Gel Superfruit + Chlorella Growth Factor for more info.
- Sample, Trial, Travel Sizes?: Nope, But I want them to! Wink, Wink! Are you listening Acure???
- EWG's Skin Deep - Cosmetic Safety Database Rating: 1. YAY!
- Verdict: This stuff is great! Two of my favorite flavors in a lip balm... I am in LOVE! I love that it's USDA Organic, it feels great, and honestly- I don't need it more than once a day! What an amazing product! I have to admit that it's a little on the minty side- even for me (and I love everything mint... Mint Chocolate Chip & Candy-Cane Ice Cream, Mint Tea, etc.). It could use a little more chocolate in my opinion, but then again- can't everything? :) This is perfect for this time of year... no cracking, or peeling lips! It's not overwhelming when you're eating and keeps your lips smooch-able loooong after you put it on! Niceeeeee...
