Nyakio Hydrating Lip Balm

  It might not be cold out ( yet) but there's always room for a new lip balm , right?  I'm not the only stockpiler surely.

This new one from Nyakio is super hydrating.  Nyakio, the brand is a new one , founded by Nyakio Kamoche Grieco  and inspired by the African beauty traditions of her family heritage.

Kola Nut is a key ingredient and sourced here from Africa's Ivory Coast. She also uses Marula Oil, Trichilia Oil, Chamomile Oil and Ximenia Oil throughout the line which has skin care as well as this lip balm.  You'll see Marula and Honey listed in the ingredients here .

The balm itself is clear, with a little shine on lips.  It's thick and creates a good barrier on lips which will work well against wind and cold.

The lip balm is also highly fragranced.  It's not quite like coffee, much sweeter . The kola nut gives a sweet but slightly nutty  fragrance to it.  A nice warm you up,  fall into winter balm.

Nyakio Hydrating Lip Balm is $ 20 and available at and at
