I hate to break it to you but your lip balm may not be working. Let me ask you, do you ever notice yourself applying it over and over again but your lips still feel incredibly dry? Or does it ever feel like a gross, thick layer of product slathered over your chapped lips that does nothing but temporarily mask the dryness? Do you ever wonder if the ingredients in your lip balm are actually helpful for your lips? Do you ever wonder if you should stop using lip balm altogether?
If you’ve ever wondered about any of these things, look no further, I have an answer for you. I recently tried Zambeezi Organic Beeswax Lip Balms and it’s been a game changer for me. I’m going to give you all the details about them and share a special offer just in case you wanted to try them out for yourself!
First, a quick overview of Zambeezi & their Organic Beeswax Lip Balm
“We’re not content to simply make the best lip balm on the planet, we’re here to make a difference.”Zambeezi
Zambeezi is all about “people thriving.” Their overall mission is to enable communities to thrive by identifying and developing unrealized human potential to free people to pursue their vision of a better world. They partner with Zambian farmers, beekeepers, and young entrepreneurs to create their wonderful product. For them, fair trade is about so much more than fair wages. They use their company’s profits to not only provide a living wage for the workers who make the products, but also to develop schools, clinics, drilling wells, and other projects essential to the community.
I can honestly say that I am just as excited about the heart behind Zambeezi as I am about the quality of their lip balms.
Flavors of Organic Beeswax Lip Balm they offer…
- Lemongrass – this is the original Zambeezi lip balm. It has a “wild gingery lemongrass flavor with organically grown, Fair Trade ingredients you’d totally fall for.”
- Tangerine – this flavor is tart and tangy, and includes organic ingredients that promote a “refreshing zing to make your lips dance.”
- Suncare – this is a unique flavor that’s actually designed to shield your lips from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
- Honeybalm – this is the newest flavor and it leaves a “lingering sweetness” your lips will love.
Each lip balm retails for about $2.99-$3.49 and is actually more affordable than the popular Burt’s Bees Lip Balms.
Why I love Zambeezi Organic Beeswax Lip Balm
All products include organic beeswax that softens & soothes your lips
I love that Zambeezi lip balms contain organic beeswax. I’m sure you already know why organic ingredients in your lip balm is important, but why beeswax specifically? Why not some other moisturizing ingredient? Well, unlike many other moisturizers, beeswax provides long term moisture and softness for your lips. I mentioned the struggle of having to reapply other lip balm too many times throughout the day earlier: because of the beeswax in Zambeezi products, you won’t have to worry about that anymore.
Each lip balm contain tons of special oils and vitamins to help improve the health of your lips
Because of the huge number of organic oils and vitamins included in Zambeezi lip balms, they can actually improve the overall health of your lips in addition to being a great moisturizer. Listed below are some of the ingredients found in Zambeezi Organic Beeswax lip balms. All of the ingredients listed are organic and starred ingredients are actually sourced directly from Zambia.

Zambeezi seeks to build lasting relationships between consumers and local producers
I mentioned a little bit about this in the section above. I love that Zambeezi isn’t a brand seeking to only make a profit for itself. It’s founders really care about it’s customers and the workers who help to source the ingredients. In fact, the Zambian farmers and entrepreneurs are referred to as partners, and are on an equal playing field as the founders.
Packaged so that it’s comfortable to carry and store.
I also really love the packaging. It was one of the first things I noticed about the lip balms and honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen any other lip balm packaging like it. It’s oval shape is slender and compact, making it fit into small spaces like pockets easily and ensuring that it doesn’t roll off the table and go missing.
If you can only get one, I recommend trying the Honey Balm Flavor…
The Honey Balm flavor has honey as it’s first ingredient. Honey is actually a humectant that draws moisture from the environment into your lips, keeping them hydrated. If you have especially dry lips, I’d definitely try this flavor first.
