GIVEAWAY: Naturally-Tinted Balms for Lips and Cheeks Plus an Herbal Salve

On Monday February 24th, I'm giving away some wonderful natural beauty and health products.  Bess Taylor, of bessmess on Etsy, has generously offered to give the winner a choice of 3 tinted balms for cheeks and lips plus a 1-oz herbal salve (containing chamomile, lavender, and calendula).




practical meets pretty, items inspired by nature

In Bess' words, here are descriptions of the tinted balms and herbal salve:
tinted balms [made with calendula-infused sweet almond oil, mango butter, beeswax, alkanet root powder and/or annatto seed (for the tint), vitamin E, lime essential oil, & love]: I choose organic ingredients that will add a beneficial quality to the end product. The beautiful colors come from infusing the oils with a variety of different roots and seeds. This product can be applied with one swipe of your finger for hydration or if you would like a bit more color, scoop a bit out and apply with your finger or a lip brush. I am a very practical person, but I also believe that practical things can be pretty, so I used watercolor to paint the original labels to represent the shade in each tin. As mom on the go, I love a multipurpose product: this product pulls double duty as lip and cheek color. The resin coating makes the tin more lasting, as you can use it to hold small items once your balm is gone.


herbal salve (made with chamomile, lavender, calendula, kokum butter, avocado oil, beeswax, & love): I always have a tin of this go-to salve in my purse: helps with a number of things including dry skin & mild itching to fly away hair and removing mascara smudges. This salve has a soft floral scent derived naturally from the herbs.

I myself have tried Bess' tinted balms, and they work great.  My daughter has very much enjoyed having her own tin of makeup that she wears on occasion, and I love knowing that it is safe and natural for her to use.

about Bess

bessmess started when my papa labeled all of my childhood "work papers" as bessmess. From then on, any craft I was making was known as bessmess to all.

My newest endeavor of tinted balms started with the beauty of a beet & is an accumulation of 5 years of science lab classes, 10+ years of professional makeup artistry, living through a period of severe chemical sensitivity,
a renewed love for painting (my labels), being a Reiki Master (adding love to all of my products), and a mom of an active 3-year-old little boy (multipurpose products that give color in a natural way).
