Natural Balmshells

Avocado Oil, Beeswax, Apricot Kernal Oil, Vitamin E… these are good things. They also happen to be the main ingredients in Pin Up Balms ($4), nourishing lip products that come in retro slide-top tins with old-school bombshells on the covers. Have I mentioned that I’m a sucker for packaging? (Especially when it's vintage and hilarious, like this polar-bear-riding peppermint beauty. WTF? Gorgeous genius.)

Pin Up Balms’ 40 flavors are all natural and range from green tea to tangerine to various types of cheesecake. YUM. And here’s the scientific part: avocado oil is an organic UV protectant, beeswax is a natural emollient, apricot kernel oil is good for hydration and Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant.

Plus, you’ll look really slick sliding open your old-fashioned tin.
