One of the neatest products I have received free for the purposes of review came for a company with a great name: Beeyoutiful. For the past month, I have been happily using the Beeyoutiful All Natural Lip Moisturizer (B.A.L.M.) and the Winter Breeze Vapor Rub. Beeyoutiful is a company that makes all-natural health and beauty products, including products for joint health, circulatory support, digestion, hormone support, and more. While I haven't tried any of Beeyoutiful's other products yet, I can enthusiastically recommend the B.A.L.M. and Vapor Rub - two essentials to have on hand during winter.
One of my (many) OCD quirks is the need to put on chapstick before I go to bed at night. I can't go to sleep unless I do. As soon as I received the B.A.L.M. in the mail, though, it took the place of the chapstick -- and I love it! Lightly scented with peppermint, the B.A.L.M. feels very light and smooth on your lips, but it lasts and lasts. The B.A.L.M. is also available in orange, and they each sell for $3.00. That's about the same price as another popular brand, and I definitely like the B.A.L.M. better!
Ordinarily, I would not have been able to give the Vapor Rub a fair trial, as my children are ridiculously healthy. For the last week, though, we have all been battling what feels like the plague, so the Vapor Rub got a thorough test drive.
The Vapor Rub comes in a 4 oz. jar and has coconut oil, olive oil, and beeswax, along with camphor, eucalyptus, menthol, wintergreen, and tea tree oils. It's like that other rub, but so much nicer! Like the B.A.L.M., the Vapor Rub is light and fragrant and, most importantly, it works! There is no decongestant like a natural decongestant. With a consistency that is far less goopy than the other rub, Winter Breeze is something you don't mind slathering on your chest or under your nose. At $18.00, it is kind of pricey for a rub, but if you're going to spend extra money on anything, then a product that makes you feel better when you are sick is a good way to spend it.
I am not an all-natural mom. I don't use the naturalness of ingredients as a baseline criteria for purchasing them. However, if there are all-natural products that out perform others, I will definitely choose to use them. This is the case with Beeyoutiful. If you insist on all-natural products, you can't miss this line. If, like me, you like all-natural, but you value performance more, you can't miss this line!
