Reviewer: Angela Sherman, Lipgloss
I’m pretty much obsessed with lip balm. If I don’t have one within reach at all times I go into panic mode. I normally just settle for petroleum based jelly balms, but recently discovered a new petroleum jelly alternative, Waxelene. Waxelene contains no petroleum, parabens or artificial ingredients, they don’t use animal testing and it’s made in the USA. You can use it for anything you would use petroleum jelly for. I’ve been using it on my lips at night, to remove eye makeup from underneath my eyes, and as a cuticle moisturizer. It’s not greasy and has only a slight hint of a beeswax smell. I love the way it feels on my lips, and when I use it on my face and cuticles it soaks in fast and doesn’t leave a greasy finish. I always look for products and foods with the least amount of ingredients, which means they are that much closer to being natural. Waxelene contains the following: Organic Soy Oil, Beeswax, Natural Vitamin E Oil, Organic Rosemary Oil. Normally I don’t like wax based balms, but it’s not a hardened wax, but more like jelly and easy to spread. The 2 oz. & 9 oz. jars retail for $5.99 and $15.99. You can find them at Bed Bath & Beyond and several other retail locations. Find the location nearest you here. Waxelene is a must for everyone’s nightstand and vanity – I’m now a petroleum jelly alternative believer!
