Pangea Organics Lip Balm

I have been receiving my Birchbox since February now and I am loving it.  Each month, I receive around 5 deluxe samples of products for hair, skin, and body.  Such samples include brands such as Nars, Ahava and Pangea Organics.

About 2 months ago, I received a full sized Pangea Organics Lip balm in Italian Red Mandarin with Rose.  There are 2 other flavors, Egyptian Fennel Grapefruit & Sweet Orange and Pyrenees Lavender w/ Cardamom.

Let's just say I am picky about lip balm.  I hate when they are waxy (lookin at you Burts Bees).  I have found many too be kind of drying (chapstick, you suck).  I have been using CO Bigelow lipgloss in a very thin layer to moisturize my lips, which isn't particularly ideal.  That was until this lip balm.

I love it.  It isn't waxy.  It doesn't feel thick.  It actually moisturizes my lips.  It's not sticky or slippery.  Granted, it doesn't have SPF, but I can deal.  I keep this baby by my bed to slick on when ever I'm in there.  The smell is awesome.  It's a subtle citrus scent that's a bit floral.  I have on good word (@bellebellebeau on twitter) that the lavender is an awesome scent as well.  These retail for $12 which is pricier for a lip balm but certainly not breaking the bank.
