Most of you probably remember my instagram post awhile back about the hop chap-stick. I never really got to do the post or review I wanted before the old site went down.
Atlantic Farms (from the guys that brought you the CXXVI and Barnaby Black clothing lines) released Hop Lip Balm. These use all natural and organic ingredients. Scents (or flavors as some may say) like Double IPA, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Mint, and Tangerine are available currently. They all contain hops...hop oils...and more hops. Yes there are really hops and hop oil in these amazing lip balms.
For those interested the listed ingredients include:
Coconut & Olive Oil, Beeswax, Hempseed Oil, Hop Flower Oils, Ground Cascade, Ground Chinook Hops, Vitamin E, and Stevia. And other ingredients/oils depending on the scent.
I ordered a sample set of these that included the Double IPA, Grapefruit, Lavender, and Mint. Oh man, did I fall in love.
THESE ARE AWESOME!
Anyone that loves the aroma of hops should pick these up. I have one with me all the time and smell it quite often.
The hops won't leave a bitterness on your lips. The hops are mainly in the aroma. And a damn good aroma it is.
The lip feel on these is great. They aren't heavy like other lip balms. They feel natural and refreshing.
Lets do a quick scent/flavor review:
Grapefruit: You guessed it.. It smells like Grapefruit and hops. Similar to an IPA that has cascade in it or other hops that have grapefruit like aroms. You get alot of the "fruity" hop aromas in this one. This one leaves a semi-sweet grapefruit taste on your lips. Love it.
Lavender: If you love lavender this one is for you. Mainly lavender forward with a hint of hops. The lavender over powers the hops but it's a pleasant mix. If you know hops you'll be able to pick them out. Since the hops aren't over powering this is a great one to keep on you. Especially if your significant other or friend isn't a hophead. It doesn't leave a strong lavender taste on your lips either.
Mint: The most refreshing out of the pack. But that's what mint does. It leaves the cool, refreshing taste of mint on your lips. The "cooling" from the mint feels really great. Again not a hop-bomb flavor but they are present. Makes you wonder what a mint-ipa would be like?
Double IPA: This one is the hop bomb in aroma. I could smell this one all day. If you ever see me out smelling some tube hardcore it might be this haha. An amazing hop aroma from the blend of whole hops and hop oils is packed into this tube. It leaves your lips feeling refreshed with little to no after taste.
The guys at Atlantic Farms killed it with these hop lip balms! Five Stars in my book. All Natural, Made in the USA, never tested on animals and HopHead certified. It doesn't get better than that. Go pick up some! Your chapped lips deserve it.
Oh and they just released hop shampoo?! You know I gotta try that.
