CBD ME by EcoLips Lip Balm

Author: Healthnuttxo

Do you use CBD?

I have a couple of products in my rotation infused with CBD oil.

CBD ME, by Eco Lips, is a company focused on making great quality CBD infused lip balm. According to their website, the CBD is extracted from Hemp grown in Oregon. It is 3rd party tested to ensure there is no THC. The hemp seed oil has essential fatty acids to keep your lips smooth and supple.

The company sent me 3 lip balms to try, Lavender Mint, Natural, and Lavender Orange.

Below are the ingredients:

Overall, I like these.

As a caveat, I have very sensitive skin, including lips. I used to use an undisclosed brand for the longest time and my lips would be chapped – until I spoke to my dermatologist who told me I was ALLERGIC to those ingredients!
Needless to say, I had no problems with these lip balms.

I will say I found *no difference* between the natural, lavender orange and lavender mint. To test if It was just me, I had my fiancé smell the lavender orange variety and he stated he could not discern what It was because It was too faint. I don’t entirely think that’s a bad thing. I dislike when lip balms are overly scented or “flavored”.

These lip balms are smooth, long lasting, without any flavors. A very VERY mild scent to them, which I like. I had no irritation from them, and the lip balm itself is not sticky, which is always a plus.

They are about $7.99 each, which is a bit steep for a lip balm, however I did like the final result. I also love supporting companies for which products are made in America.

4.5 stars

Baobab fruit? A what?

Yeah, I’ve never heard of It either.

According to the founders over at Tiiga, the Baobab fruit is native to Africa. They made an electrolyte drink mix based upon this fruit. According to the packaging, Baobab is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and has natural fiber.

Now, I live in Arizona and let’s just say in the summer, I am in a constant state of dehydration. I feel as if I cannot hydrate ENOUGH on the days It is over 105. So these sounded quite perfect for me.

Here are the nutritional facts below:

So not entirely sugar and carb free – but not crazy high in sugar either unlike some other electrolyte based powders.

How were they?
I will say they are thicker and don’t mix as smoothly as you would expect a powder to, but keep in mind the first ingredient is a fruit.

However, overall I think It is a hit. The Raspberry Lemonade flavor is not super sweet, has a tart lemon flavor and light raspberry flavor. Not overly powerful but mild. It feels hydrating, for lack of a better word.

The Orange Mango is delicious! Sweet, tart and refreshing. The mango flavor really shines through here and the orange is nice undertone.

I am not sure if baobab has a flavor itself but if It does It must be pretty mild.

OVERALL – 4 stars. I think this is a great product for a hike. Has a decent amount of sodium without a ton of sugar to help replenish what you lose during a sweaty hike or grueling workout.

The cons are I don’t think it’s appropriate for every day use, due to the sodium content. They are about 24$ for 16 of them which is not bad when you consider how much sports drinks can cost.

I do think its great for active people to replenish their bodies or for those who sweat a lot. (As always, contact your MD, PA or NP to make sure product is right for you!)

CBD Shot

Author: Healthnuttxo

New product CBD Shot. This is definitely the first of it’s kind to my knowledge. I am well accustomed to CBD gummies, lip balm, creams and more. A CBD “drink” if you will, is definitely a new one for me. The people over at CBD shot contacted me to give It a try and my fiancé and I happily obliged.

This product has 50 mg of broad spectrum CBD. The company is located in Texas. Claims for this product are that It is triple lab tested, 100% natural ingredients (Water, CBD and orange extract) and NO THC.

Each bottle contains 2 servings and is $4.99 per bottle.
It is sugar free, caffeine free.

So my fiancé and I both tried this before bed one night. My fiancé uses a lot of CBD products and likes them very much.
We shook the product well as instructed.(Well, I shook the product. Product definitely does not need TWO people shaking It…)

It is…well… awful.
It’s aiding and honestly tastes like plastic
It’s oily in consistency. Like imagine drinking watery oil. With a hint of orange.

My fiancé took one sip and the look on his face made me hesitant to try mine.
I tried It and well… same look.

It’s a no from me. And him. Pass on this one guys. Unless you truly are not bothered by the taste then proceed on.

This is my first 0 star review.
