Shannon's Soaps Lavender Mint Balm- Review

It should come as no surprise at this point that I am madly in love with everything that I have ever tried from Shannon's Soaps, and as long as the delightful Shannon is making her glorious products I will be using them, period! This is a line that I can stand behind without hesitation, and I couldn't recommend her products more emphatically. Everything is made with the highest quality ingredients that smell delicious, and feel amazing on the skin.
My newest favorite product from Shannon's Soaps is her phenomenal Homemade Lavender Mint Balm- it is so great, in fact, that I can hardly believe that I am only just now starting to use it. This delightful balm is hardworking, highly effective, and it boasts a phenomenal sensory aromatherapeutic experience. I really had the perfect opportunity to test the efficacy of this product because my lips have been more chapped than ever thanks to a couple of unforgivingly drying lipsticks that I wore for a couple of days. In fact my lips were such a red, chapped and peeling mess that I nearly avoided leaving the house. I began applying this beautiful balm to my lips and within about two hours the redness had diminished significantly, and within a day my lips looked normal (though still healing). It was on the morning of the third day that I noticed that my lips were not only restored to normal, but that they were also unbelievably soft and supple. The smell is delicious and calming, and the texture is unbelievably emollient and refined. This beauty is also very concentrated, so only the smallest amount needs to be applied to the lips to produce astonishing results.

According to Shannon's Soaps, this glorious balm is "Loaded with healing oils and natural waxes" and "can be used virtually anywhere your skin needs extra healing help - like hands, lips, cuticles, and rough spots on your heels or elbows."

I also tried the balm on my hands, cuticles, elbows, and heels to see how it performed, and as suspected it did a fantastic job of deeply moisturizing everything that it touched!

Choose from: Lavender Mint (a natural essential oil scent), Tropical Coconut (fragrance oil scent), Jasmine (fragrance oil scent), or Monoi de Tahiti (fragrance oil scent).

Overall assessment: The best of the best! You need this in your life, period! The price is so reasonable for what you get that it is worth picking up a few of them!! I definitely want to try Jasmine next!

$5.00 1.5 oz. tin available from Shannon's Soaps. Shannon's Soaps is a Cruelty Free company.

  1. This sounds utterly delightful--I am a HUGE fan of natural, multi-use balms. Must definitely try this one!

    1. It's amazing, Becca!!!!!! You and I are so completely on the same page when it comes to lip products!! I think that you would LOVE this!! BTW, I got 3 Lip Mists because of you, and yes- Blueberry was one of them. I haven't reviewed them yet because I need to really get over this flu before touching them!!! <3

  2. I love the sound of this and have been searching for some lavender-scented products this week. But being in Canada, the shipping cost will surely offset the affordability of the product. I'll have to find a way around it...

    1. It is really lovely, but unless they ship to Canada reasonably- it probably would end up being prohibitively expensive. They really should do something about the overinflated postal rates between the US and Canada-- it's really ridiculous!
