Even though the Beauty Brains don’t do traditional reviews, from time to time we like to share new products that we’re trying. We want you to know that we received free samples in exchange for a mention on our blog and that we’re not necessarily recommending you buy anything. We’re just sharing new product news; please do your own research before you buy.
Since the Beauty Brains have a book titled “Can You Get Hooked On Lip Balm,” we’d be remiss if we didn’t blog about lip products every once in a while. Recently we had a chance to try a few samples of Paul Frank’s monkey-themed Lip Smacker lip. They taste delicious and, as you can see from the ingredient list below they’re based primarily on natural oils and waxes. Also, did I mention they’re monkey-themed?
