I’m not much of a glamour girl or fashionista, but like anyone else out there, I like to look good and put together. To me, being put together means not stepping out of the house without my warpaint on, ready to take on the world! My makeup obsession has always been anything lip related…lipstick, lip gloss, lip balm, you name it. I’ll admit it, I spend way too much money every year trying out new brands and going back to old favorites…but there could be worse guilty pleasures!
A few weeks back a friend of mine mentioned she was working on a project with PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics, and I was of course intrigued. My first question to her was if I could try their products! However, when she started telling me the philosophy behind the company, I became interested on a much deeper and totally different level.
PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics is a cosmetics line that is giving back, one beauty product at a time. This eco-friendly line donates 100 percent after-tax, distributable profits to charities that support urgent women’s rights issues around the globe. The company strives to end servitude and exploitation of women and children and promote women’s health advocacy issues. So it’s make-up with a purpose (or more than one purpose!).
Currently the PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics line mainly features lip products but they also carry nail polish and select clothing items. Now my lip product obsession will be serving some good, because with every purchase I make from this line of cosmetics I’m supporting a woman or girl in need around the world today!
So far I’ve tried out four of their lip balms, all of which kept my lips moist, smooth & nurtured:
- Yum Balm Citrus The USDA seal on this balm means that it’s been confirmed to be 95% organic by the USDA meaning it’s food-grade – so technically you could spread this on your toast with butter for breakfast. However, I recommend that you stick to applying them to your lips – but they do have a nice “taste” to them.
- Perfect As Is Balm is a soothing and vitamin rich lip balm made with organic rose and stevia which offer intense hydration and long-lasting lips. It has pink tint to it giving your lips just a bit of color.
- Eco-Sensual Balm is a mix of aromatic spearmint and richly moisturizing coconut oil which is excellent for soothing sensitive, dry lips. This is one of my favorites – it’s super soothing and keeps my dry lips from chapping!
- Superfruit Balm features the super powerful combination of goji and pomegranate that nourish lips with vitamins, minerals and loads of antioxidants for healthy, soft and smooth lips. I think this one smells the best with its light and fruity aroma.
All of PeaceKeeper’s products are reasonably priced, on the level of any department store cosmetic. Balms and nail polish retail at $8.oo a piece, lip gloss are $10 a pop and lipsticks are $12.00 each.
