Oh hai there, twenty fourteen! It’s hard to believe that a new year is already upon us. I’m not one to make New Years’ resolutions as I have a tendency to fail miserably in keeping them within two weeks’ time (and believe me when I say “two weeks”, I’m being generous). Instead, I like to make a list of one new item I’d like to purchase for each month of the upcoming year. Here are 12 items that have caught my eye and I can’t wait to get my hands on before 2014 is over:

The great features of these balms is that they are USDA organic certified, made with up to 100% natural ingredients, preservative free, dye/colour free, hypoallergenic, cruelty free, and GMO free. Live Clean balms are without doubt crème de la crème when it comes to eco-friendly lip products. After putting 3 of their famous balms to the test, here are my thoughts on them.
