Bonnie Bell is back again!

Awhile back, I wrote about my love for Bonnie Bell's Dr. Pepper Lipsmackers. I found out that they were not gluten free. Bummer. I gave them up and switched to Yes to Carrots (the Citrus Lip Butter is awesome!)

Last week I was wandering through my local Walgreens and right there on the Lipsmacker display was a new product - 100% Natural Lipsmackers. Available in Acai Berry, Honeydew Melon, Pink Guava, and Vanilla Bean, I was surprised to see on the packaging:



There's a clear answer right there on the box. I've been seeing a lot of people on the Celiac Listserv asking for suggestions on gluten free lip products, so I hope this helps!

How's it work actually work? Well I bought the Acai Berry and it's kind of thick and grainy. It's not super smooth like other lip butters, but it has a nice scent and it keeps my lips shiny and moist. Not sure if I'll buy it again. It's clear without adding any color to the lips. I liked that tint of color that Dr. Pepper Lipsmacker had. Oh well...

I agree, I like to have some tint in my lip balm, especially since I can't seem to keep lip gloss on for more than a few minutes!
