This review is for Hurraw! Balms, which retail for $3.79-4.29USD.

What Hurraw! say about this lip balm:

“Hurraw! Balm started out of pure intent; a personal obsession to create the perfect balm:
all natural, vegan, made from premium raw, organic and fair trade ingredients, complete with a bunch of natural and fun flavor options! It also had to meet some tough criteria… Super smooth, not draggy, not sticky, not sweet, not too glossy, not too smelly, never grainy, long lasting; plus, it had to hold up to being in a back jeans pocket all day without melting! It took us several obsessed years to formulate Hurraw! Balm and put it through all the rigors. We love it, use it, and hope you do too.”

My Thoughts:

Hurraw! Balm make my absolute favourite lip balms. I have a couple in my bag, one in the car, and one next to my bed at all times.

The Upside:

Their formula is true to their word. It’s smooth, long lasting, not thin, or sweet, or sticky, and I love that they won’t melt in my pocket. Hurraw! Balm is a 100% vegan brand!

The Downside:

I honestly can’t even think of a downside. They are available everywhere, they are reasonably priced, they come in a huge range of flavours… The only complaint I have ever heard anyone make about them was my husband saying that he wished they tasted like they smelled, but I think they are wonderful.

I once had a dream that I would supply the world with moisturising, softening balms in a range of flavours that would blow minds everywhere. That was, until I found out that they already existed.

Hurraw! Balms all come in a flattened tube that slips into a purse or pocket without being bulky. The balms themselves are long lasting and full of wonderful, healthful ingredients that are good enough to eat. Hurraw! use the finest all natural, vegan, fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers and the finished product is the perfect consistency.

Their balms are free of gluten, soy, shea, petroleum, paraben, preservative, and artificial colour and flavouring. They are also dedicated to being as honest, environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible (read their about page, they mean it!).


Here are the six of the balms that I have tried and loved:

Hurraw! Balm in Coconut

Hurraw! Balm in Coconut

Coconut is the best all-rounder. The scent is delicious and not overpowering, and no matter the time of day or my beverage of choice, the scent of this lip balm is always welcome. Buy Coconut.

Hurraw! Balm in Vanilla Bean

Hurraw! Balm in Vanilla Bean

Vanilla Bean is beautiful! Luxurious, creamy, and sweet smelling. Buy Vanilla Bean.

Hurraw! Balm in Mint

Hurraw! Balm in Mint

Mint is lots of fun, it has a nice, cool, tingling sensation. Buy Mint.

Hurraw! Balm in Earl Grey

Hurraw! Balm in Earl Grey

Earl Grey has a lovely, unexpected bergamot scent which works fantastically. I encourage the creation of unique lip balms! Buy Earl Grey.

Hurraw! Balm in Moon Balm

Hurraw! Balm in Moon Balm

Moon Balm is a night treatment balm and intended for use before bed, but its gorgeous combination of blue chamomile and vanilla bean make me reach for it during the day too… It’s creamy and thick, and it actually stays on all night. Buy Moon Balm.

Hurraw! Balm in Black Cherry

Hurraw! Balm in Black Cherry

Black Cherry is one of only two tinted lip balms made by Hurraw! It is the slightly darker of the two and gives a subtle cherry red tint which works perfectly. It’s not dramatic, but it’s great for adding a touch of colour to a natural look. Buy Black Cherry.


Makeup Artist Tip:

Try using lip balm over and under matte lipsticks for added moisture, or try applying them over your favourite lip pencil to make it into a lipstick. There’s no reason that you can’t mix a little of your favourite blush or eyeshadow with some lip balm for a unique look.

Hurraw! Balm are based in the USA. Their balms are available from their website, Amazon via the links above, and in wonderful cafes and shops worldwide.

My obsession with the Hurraw! Balm range is still in full swing. Do you already love these balms? Can you pick a favourite? I can’t!

Thank you for choosing truly cruelty free products!
