Why You’ll Love It

Perk up your senses while nourishing your lips with the smart combination of organic Zambian mongongo oil, Fair Trade Certified cocoa butter, and organic peppermint essential oil. Mongongo oil is used as a body rub by the Kung bushmen of the Kalahari to cleanse and moisturize their skin, as well as protect it against the harsh desert environment. For chapped, dry lips it's a godsend, delivering quick nourishment thanks to mongongo's calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, and high concentrations of vitamin E.

About This Brand

In the early 1990s, Andrea Danielson began brewing small batches of natural lip balm in her kitchen for her friends and family. She took great care in handcrafting the balm and packaging it in small amber glass jars to preserve the freshness of the pure ingredients. Andrea didn’t realize that by giving a sample of her natural lip creation to Steve Shriver, her life would be changed forever. Having larger than average lips, Steve was continually searching for a better lip balm. When Steve met Andrea in 1995, he immediately fell in love with the lip balm, and moments later he also fell in love with Andrea. They were married in 1997 and Steve, a lifetime entrepreneur, quickly spent Andrea’s life savings on ingredients and packaging for the couple’s first product, Hemp Lip Buzz. By 2003, Steve and Andrea had built a specialized private label natural body care company focusing on making high quality products for many other successful brands. Their company rapidly became a...

Reviews For Peppermint Lip Balm

Based on 35 Reviews

Best buy from Thrive yet!

I wish I could give more stars. I've become quite a chapstick addict over the years. No matter what I try, I'm reapplying every half hour. Without it, my lips feel dry and really uncomfortable. I'm a teacher in Arizona, and so I spend the day talking in a dry area, which dries out my lips quickly. After getting tired of spending so much on Burt's Bees at Walmart, I thought I'd give this a try. It is amazing! Such a good price for such a big size. I bought one months ago and haven't run out yet. It goes on smoothly, and I've noticed I only have to put it on about three times a day instead of 50 like I did with Burt's Bees. I really couldn't care less about the scent as long as it works, but I really like the minty scent, so that was a plus!

Best Balm

Love this stuff, nice minty scent but not too strong. Really does a good job to relieve chapped lips.

--Note the size! It's larger than the standard small tube, so it's even a better value.

- Robert

Love it!

It goes on so smooth and leaves my lips moisturized but also with a nice shimmer to them, which lasts for about an hour. The smell is nice, not too overwhelming. I also love the large size of it - it will last me a while.

- Laura


I've been using this lip balm for a month now and it has been a total lifesaver! Since moving to the desert I have had the need for a good chapstick that won't make my lips peel. Love love love this and bought it for everyone for christmas this year.

- Tammy

A very good lip gloss

I would prefer a little bit more peppermint, but it;s really great, anyway. I would/will buy this again,

- mary

Great Choice

This is a great lip balm. Fresh, pepperminty scent that feels clean and smooth, with a satisfying large grip. I was glad to find a healthy option, plant-based option at a reasonable price - some of the many reasons I like Thrive Market.

- Maya

Lovely lip balm

I really like this lip balm. I couldn't tell from the picture, but it's actually a nice big fat tube. The smell is lovely and it really moisturizes your lips.

- Melissa

My lips love it

Just the right amount of softness, not greasy like some other naturals I've tried. I don't feel the need to reapply often, it keeps my lips moisturized for hours. I've bought multiples to keep in all my bags so I never have to be without it.

- Chanti

Pretty good

I like this lip balm but not as much as the Alba Botanica.

- Tracy

The Best!

This lip balm is amazing! Glides on your lips smooth and actually softens and absorbs into your lips. I bought one for myself and my son, we both get really chapped lips. I have been using EOS to help but this lip balm is so much better. I highly recommend it!

- Brittany


I've been a Carmex only person all my life. I've tried just about every lip balm/chapstick out there & hadn't found one I liked until I found this stuff. I absolutely love this lip balm & happened to have a cold sore when I bought it. It has healed my cold sore faster than any of the products out there that cost a fortune. I would recomend this lip balm to any & every one. Love it!

- Kari

Mongo Kiss lip balm (peppermint)

This is a very healing and penetrating oil balm. I also don't feel like it is addictive like chap stick. I use less and actually feel like my lips are healing from extreme dryness. Actually gave one of those away also be she loved it. Keep doing it folks!!

- Leslie Dickerson

good stuff

bigger than a regular chapstick tube- nice surprise. love how it makes my lips feel. my new favorite!

- Aimee

my favorite lip balm ever

Love this stuff! It's the only lip balm I'll use. I have bigger lips that are prone to chapping - this stuff helps immensely.

- Alaina

- Tonya Roberts

Nice product

This lip balm smells nice. Makes your lips feel nice too.

- Jenine


Love this lip balm. And I'm a picky lip balm girl!

- Nicole

Love it

I am a lip balm lifer. I have tried a lot of different ones. I really like this one.


Best lip balm ever!

We use up balm frequently, so the first time my husband used this he said, "this is the best lip balm, I've ever used!"

- Diane Ciaccio


I've used Nivea lip balm in the past because I liked the scent. Since I've been slowly going natural (one step at a time), I switched to this lipbalm. Honestly, it keeps my lips moist much longer than Nivea ever has. I don't get the sense that I need to reapply because my lips are dry again. A 4-5 hours later, I can still tell that my lips are fine. It feels like my lips got nourishment and they are staying moist. Highly recommend this product!

- swissmiss

Great product

This is an incredible product..natural product in a great size, at a great price!! We stocked up!!

- Chris

My favorite

My favorite lip balm of all time.

- Elizabeth

Love this!!

I'm super picky about my lip balms - a lot of them simply don't work with my sensitive skin. I love how this feels on my lips. It's not too greasy but not too dry either - just right. ;) I love the peppermint smell as well - I was worried that the smell might be overpowering, but it's not. Will definitely be re-ordering!

- Stefani

So Good!

This is the best lip balm I have ever tried. It has long lasting moisturizer, and a bit of shine. I love the mint, its freshening to my breath as well.
At this price it will be always be in my purse, in my nightstand & given as gifts.

- Jacquelyn

lip balm

Minty and wonderful. Ordering more for friends

- Irene


I always have lip balm on me and love peppermint so I wanted to try this as soon as I saw it! It's tingly, which I love, goes on smooth, and is not waxy at all, my least favorite attribute of some lip balms.

- Kimberly

Great lip balm

Minty and hydrating. Couldn't be better!

- Irene


I have been looking for a all natural lip balm for awhile that doesn't cost a lot. The peppermint smells great but isn't overpowering. It is very moisturizing especially in the fall/winter weather. I look forward to trying the other flavors in the future.

- Kerri

I love lip balm!

This lip balm is pretty good. I only like to use peppermint in the winter (reminds me of the holidays). Mongo Kiss is a great brand and I feel like my lips are safe and protected when I use it. My only issue? I already have too many!

- TeresaDee

Lip Balm Addict

I am literally a lip balm addict, strange for a man, I know. Most of the time they have fruity flavors, and I'd much rather have something a little more "manly." I like when my lips aren't dry, and Mongo Kiss works great to keep my lips moist. I love the fresh peppermint.

- Randall Sexton

I like it!

Great lip balm, smooth and moisturizing and great taste too.

- Brenda

Can't see much difference

I bought this instead of Chapstick, just to see what a natural balm would be like. This actually works the same as my Chapstick, and the big difference is that this is natural and that isn't. So maybe I'm off base, but price wise it's about the same and they both do the job, so not sure if it's worth it, but if you want a natural lip balm that works, this would be a fine choice.

- Frederick Porter

Strange and wonderful

I never heard of the primary oil used in this before I discovered it. It's wonderful and keeps my lips from being dry and cracked. The peppermint is my favorite.

I love that it is made with all natural ingredients and I don't have to worry about licking my lips! It tastes great too!

- Marjie Cowie


I really love this festive lip balm. It tastes and smells great. I love peppermint flavored products, so this is a huge hit in my book. It is chock cull of great nutrients for my sensitive lips so I feel great about using it and my lips really thank me. The fact that this product is used to help make jobs for women in Africa is also a huge plus!
