honestly amazing

i don't know about you but my lips are very particular when it comes to lip balm. To be honest they get irritated and start to itch when I just use the typical chap stick. I don't know why but it has always been difficult for me to find a good lip balm that won't irritate my lips and cause them to rash.


& then i came across Honestly Margo. An adorable line of lip balm inspired by nature.








BUT what really drew me in was the girl behind Honestly Margo, Margo. An adorable 12 year old girl who had an idea and took it upon herself with help from her mom to start her own business. Being an entrepreneur myself, I couldn't help but fall in love with this girl and her business. I asked her how and why at such a young age she decided to start this venture and here's what she said ------>>>








My name is Margo and I’m 12 years old. From a young age, I've always had an interest in having my own business.  I came up with many ideas from an online art shop to making clothes for my cat.  I’ve also always loved beauty products.  So I combined my passion for both business and beauty and began to create lip balms.  


Together with my mom’s help, we found the best natural ingredients for my project and I set to work creating my own lip balm formula.  After sharing them with my friends, they wanted more.  LOTS more.  My mom said to me, “Margo, there is nothing from stopping you from becoming all you’ve ever wanted to be.  Dream BIG!  If you want my help, I can guide you and you can make this little lip balm thing something WAY bigger.”  And from there I said, “LET’S DO THIS!”  Three months later, Honestly Margo was born.





So I brought together 2 things I loved.... starting my own business and beauty.  This endeavor represents my first adventure into business, but it’s just the beginning. I think my products represent girls of today.  Girls are smarter than ever before, and we’re taking the things we’ve been given and mixing them together in new & better ways. Honestly Margo is about pure ingredients, but it’s also about dreaming big, and taking a chance. 








Is she not the cutest thing EVER!? You gotta love a girl with such ambition to start a business at such a young age. I was SO excited to try her lip balms and hoped they wouldn't irritate my lips. When I got them in the mail they were so adorable! So skinny & little, perfect for ANY size purse, clutch, wallet or even your back pocket.



I got the three trio packet -


The Juliet: A Carmel Apple Lip Balm

The Penelope: A Pumpkin Cheesecake Lip Balm

The Fiona: A Fruit Colada Lip Balm






The very first one I tried was The Penelope: A Pumpkin Cheesecake Lip Balm, because fall is amongst us and I am a sucker for any type of fall scent....& omg did it smell A MAZ ING! But even better, it FELT amazing. It was so smooth on my lips, I was already hooked. BUT the best part, my lips LOVED it too. The lip balm did not irritate my lips at all. Just made them feel nice and smooth. I was excited to have found a lip balm I could wear.




However, I wanted to see how the lip balm would take to other people and their lips, because everyone is different so I enlisted in my friends Jenny & Stacy to try out the lip balm for themselves. I didn't tell them why, I just wanted their honest reaction.







I gave Jenny The Juliet - Carmel Apple Lip Balm & Stacy The Fiona - Fruit Colada Lip Balm. Here's what they said straight from their lips ---



"OMG I want to eat this lip balm NOW" - Jenny



"The smell takes me back to a tropical paradise" - Stacy



Its safe to say they were both in love with Honestly Margo. They both loved the feel of the lip balm on their lips and loved how skinny & small they were...perfect for a night out on the town when you only bring your small clutch. I know you girls know exactly what I mean. You can't fit everything, or really anything in the small clutches so having a skinny lip balm is key.



SO it's safe to say we're Honestly Margo's new biggest fans & we want you to be too! SO today the adorable Margo is giving you messy readers the chance to win a trio pack of Honestly Margo so you too can experience all the yumminess of these lip balms!







SO good luck & seriously do yourself a favor & check out Honestly Margo's ADORABLE website HERE . I can't wait to see what flavors she comes up with next!
