Product reviews from our experts…


Shouldn’t all lip products have mint!? I love the zingy lip plumping finish of the Native Self lip balm. Apply pre-lipstick for a healthy lip skin finish, or throughout the day to keep your lips soft and supple. As a braces wearer not many lip balms manage to go the distance, but the mint in this balm seems to make it last, also you had me at rose – what a stunning combination!

I love the small batch feel to this product, so sweet and the meaning can be felt. Fair trade focus and environmentally sustainable practices are also enviable and that they provide employment opportunities for local communities – great work for a small brand!

This product had me feeling nostalgic for my 1990s slim SoftLips tube. The formula was simple and very nice. It was gently minty and moisturising. It had good slip but also stayed put on the lips. There was no stickiness! It really did offer good moisture, which was paired with a nice exfoliating sensation when applying it. It was a solid lip balm with nourishing, recognisable ingredients.

I like that they partner with women-run co-ops in West Africa where the Shea Butter is produced and they use Fair Trade Shea Butter. They also use local companies to do their packaging, which cuts down on the carbon footprint of their packaging.

We really enjoyed the packaging and the look of the product. We also loved that it is a normal lip balm tube with a regular twist function! We did enjoy the smell too.

We also really appreciate that this brand uses local and small businesses to source things for their own business, coming from a small business ourselves it is something we appreciate!
