twotreehouse is the brainchild of a very old and dear friend of mine, Mayni. I’ve known her since we were about 10. We went to the same school, we were in the same classes, we got into quite a bit of shit together back in the day, went to the same tutorial classes, went to the same college for a while until she left for Australia. She was even one of my bridesmaids at my wedding. Let’s just say we go way back.
Right, so back to twotreehouse. It’s a range of handmade skincare products, lovingly created and tested by Mayni for months before she launched her brand in 2011. I had the opportunity to try out some of her products, but I mainly want to show you her bestselling item, which are her handmade lip balms.
When she first showed them to me, I was very impressed. The packaging was very cute; it’s definitely not what you’d normally see in shops.
The lip balms come in pack; three lip balms in a gorgeous fabric box (size of a matchbox). They come in three flavours – Tangerine, Strawberry and Mint. The lip balms are not waxy; they apply very smoothly on the lips and taste yummy (subtly sweet, and not cloyingly so). These lip balms are not tinted and make a smooth base for your favourite lippie.
Shea butter, coconut oil, honey, beeswax, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, evening primrose oil, vitamin E, edible food dye.
To give you an idea as to what the size of each lip balm is, take a look a the photo below.
It’s smaller than a tampon!
These lip balms make great gifts. She has heaps of fabric patterns for the boxes, so you will be spoiled for choice as to which designs to choose.
twotreehouse lip balms retail at AU$15 for each box of 3 lip balms. You’ll be able to find her and twotreehouse at the Rose Street Market (Melbourne) in the weekends. If you would like to place an order for the lip balms or check out any of her products (especially the body lotions. They are rich and has a luxurious texture), do head over to the twotreehouse Facebook page for more information. Oh, and if you place an order for lip balms only, you get free shipping within Australia!
Note: These lip balms were provided for consideration, because I’m her friend and she loves me. My review’s an honest one though. These really are good shizz
