I’d been “going balmy” for months trying to find a lip balm that would help keep my lips moisturized. Then finally after all the countless searches I came across two wonderful lip balms from different companies within a matter of a couple of weeks. I could not believe after reviewing ‘vanessa megan’s’ lip balm and found it to be excellent, I came upon “Organic Island”. They have been in business since 2006 and manufacture shell compacts with lip balm. Included inside the shell compact is a mirror and the all natural lip balm is made from Coconut Oil, Rosehip Oil, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil, Mango Seed Butter, Beeswax and Lanolin Wax. I contacted “Organic Island” and two gorgeous shell lip balm compacts were sent to me. The lip balm is divine. It is light in scent and very moisturizing.
If you need to ‘shell out’ on a gift for a female relative or friend then these shell lip balm compacts are just the perfect gift! “Organic Island’s” shells are authentic. They recycle shells and collect damaged shells which have been washed on shore. The shells are cleaned before re-use.

History of Shell Money
Shells had been used as money over the centuries and in fact the Tolai people in East New Britain Province of Papua New Guinea still use shells for payment.
Their shell money known as Tabu is used to pay for food from local markets, funerals, settling feuds, land purchases and as a payment for brides etc.
