Last week the lovely Jen over at Mia & Dom Organic Skin Care sent me one of their new lip balms to try.
Mia & Dom Organic Skin Care is a Yorkshire based company who make skincare products for mothers (and mothers-to-be), children, babies and those with sensitive skin. All of the products are made from organic ingredients and the company makes it a priority to source natural raw materials that have been fairly traded or ethically sourced from traditional communities and modern community projects. All of the ingredients are sourced from UK suppliers and the products are hand made.
Something that really impresses me with this company is that they do not use any ingredients made from animal souces, e.g. gelatine or collagen, which are frequently used in cosmetics.
As I am neither with child or a mother-to-be, I was sent one of their products perfect for this time of year, an organic lip balm. I was sent the Red Mandarin & Peppermint lip balm (£3.99), which smells divine. I really like the cute packaging of this lip balm, and it’s a great size to pop into my handbag to use throughout the day.
I’m actually not usually a fan of lip balms as I find them sticky or the smell is too overbearing, but I like this one. The texture is really light and though I can feel it moisturising my lips, it doesn’t feel sticky or wet. The fragrance is subtle once it’s been applied, so it is something you can apply all day without getting sick of the smell.
If you’re concerned about what kind of ingredients go into your cosmetics and where they come from, then Mia & Dom could be a good place to start. The company has a varied range of products for mothers and babies, perfect for sensitive skins.
