I can't place in iHerb order without getting a lip balm or three. I've discovered some amazing balms that aren't available in Australia, Avalon Organics being one of them. The Peppermint Green Tea balm is perfection. The flavour is lovely, the perfect mix of green tea and peppermint, like a soft, sweet mint.

Texture wise this is very similar to Crazy Rumors balms. Next time you're placing an iHerb order, add a few of these balms to your cart. If you haven't ordered from iHerb, code YUF175 will get you a discount on your order.

Getting to know us - Interview with Emma

How did your lip balm obsession start?
As a kid in primary school. The good old rollerball lip glosses!! That you needed to apply every 5 minutes!

What are your top five favourite lip balms?
Lanolips - Rhubarb
Buddha Balm - Burnt Fig

Lancome - Gloss in Love

Which balms are on your lust list?
Chapstick - Cake Batter (only because it hasn't been released here yet!)
Lancome Lip Lover

How many lip balms are in your handbag at the moment?
Does that mean what's floating around in there or what's in the pouch?!

Do you ever leave the house without lip balm? 
Yes - and I have to buy one every time I forget! Maybe this is a strategy!

What balms do you think everyone should try?
Sukin, Lanolips. Funny that they're both Aussie brands!

What makes a lip balm great for you?
Thick, not sticky, lasts a while, flavored.
