Hurraw!: An Eco-Friendly Lip Balm Giveaway

As you know, I am a sucker for all-natural (preferably organic) beauty products, from store-bought natural cosmetics to DIY body scrubs and facial moisturizers. That being said, I also love a product that actually works.

Well, Hurraw! Balm lip balms are the best of both worlds, providing an eco-friendly product that delivers smooth, tasty kissable lips. Ever since The Boy stuffed a three-pack in my stocking for Christmas two years ago, I’ve been 100% hooked. I rarely use any different brands, and I never leave the house without my balm.

Not only are they made with vegan, raw, organic, non-toxic, fair trade ingredients (like coconut oil, jojoba oil, cacao butter and natural fruit oils), but the 20+ flavors are far from boring and make you want to lick your lips all day long. Some of my favorites are Chocolate (made with real cocoa), Black Cherry and Almond.

And now I’ve got some new favorites, since Hurraw! Balm just introduced their new line of Ayurvedic-based balms for each Dosha: Vata, Pitta & Kapha.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Ayurvedic approach, it’s a traditional Indian alternative
“medicine” that focuses on one’s lifestyle and unique body type. In Ayurveda, they feel that based on your individual characteristics, different foods and activities can heal or harm. I often tie some Ayurvedic techniques into my health coaching sessions, as its one of my favorite topics I studied during Nutrition School.

We all carry each of the three Doshas, but typically there are one or two over-powering ones. After taking multiple tests and digging deep to really listen to my body, I’ve found that I’m primarily a Vata type, meaning that I carry the Vata dosha in excess and need to balance that out accordingly. Thank goodness there’s a balm made just for me with almond, cardamom and rose. (I’m already in love.)

You can find our your unique body type here to see which balm would work best for you! Now for the exciting news: I’ll be giving away a VPK three-pack of these Ayurvedic balms to 3 lucky Healthy Chicks! Yes, that’s 3 packs of 3!

    As for my dosha, every time I have taken one of the tests to figure it out, I can never reach an answer. I would be happy with any of them, though my lips and skin tend to be really dry so maybe Vata…? But seriously, any. But most important; THANKS FOR THE GENEROUS GIVEAWAY.

  55. Cathy B*****y Says:

    the quiz said I am pitta/kapha but there is only 1 pt between all 3 choices.. and I found there to be more things in common.. all 3 choices in score were only 1 or 2 apart..
    Cathy B*****y pbprojecthope atyahoodotcom

  56. Cathy B*****y Says:

    I just went back and read through all the symptoms for vata, pitta, and kapha. I had 7 symptoms in each category..
    Cathy B*****y pbprojecthope atyahoodotcom

  57. Meg Vernon Says:

    I turned out to be Miss Kapha! Closely followed by Pitta.
    I wonder why it is the category symptoms came out in such a negative way? I personally don’t have any of these ailments thankfully!!
    Hurraw make great balms, organic, raw, vegan! Doesn’t get too much better in my opinion 🙂

  58. Nicole Dray Says:

    Great products up for grabs!! I tested Pitta thank goodness don’t experience the ailments think I maybe a combination type!

  59. Rachel @ Healthy Chicks Says:

    @Meg @Nicole Hey ladies, thanks for entering 🙂 I just wanted to touch upon the ailments as I know you both had some questions. Not all of us will have ALL of the ailments…those are just what Ayurvedic Medicine principles believes happens when we’re out of balance.

    For instance if you lean more toward Pitta, if you get Pitta in excess, those “ailments” may come out. That’s why it’s so important to stay balanced and Hurraw! Balm’s new line helps pacify or balance out whatever dosha you have in excess. For me, I’m a classic Vata with some Pitta…I notice when I’m out of balance I can get spacy, anxious, worried, etc. but when I’m in balance I thrive with creativity and clarity. It’s all about keeping it in check and balanced. Hope that makes sense!

  60. Michelle Says:

    I think I’m a Pitta.

  61. Natalie S Says:
