This Beautycounter Hyaluronic Lip Balm review will tell you everything you need to know about this high-performing balm, jam packed with supercharged skincare ingredients!
One of my favorite parts about being a Beautycounter consultant, is having the ability to try so many incredible clean beauty products! I’ve always enjoyed makeup & skincare, but partnering with Beautycounter has taken that interest & turned it into a passion of mine! On top of that, I’m so grateful for the opportunity to help educate other women about the importance of choosing safer, even if they start with just a lip balm! I always say that every safer swap matters when it comes to lessening our toxin burden!
This post is dedicated to one of Beautycounter’s newer lip product additions, the Clean Swipe Hyaluronic Lip Balm. Whether you’re already familiar with Beautycounter’s other lip products, like our Beyond Gloss or Sheer Genius Conditioning Lipstick, this balm is a must because you can wear it alone or under any of the other lip products! It’s become a must have for me & many of my clients!
Beautycounter Hyaluronic Lip Balm Review
This lip balm may or may not ruin how you view other lip balms haha! It’s that amazing! It’s supercharged with skincare ingredients that nourish & hydrate your lips from the second you apply it, making your lips buttery soft. It’s also formulated without the use of harmful or questionable ingredients, so you have peace of mind wearing it all day! Before trying this product, I can see how you might get caught up on the price tag for just a balm. However, this balm is not your average lip balm & that becomes evident as soon as you apply it!
Beautycounter did such a wonderful job formulating these nourishing lip balms. When it comes to this balm, I like to describe it as skincare for your lips due to the incredible featured ingredients like hyaluronic acid, mango butter, & jojoba seed oil! Thanks to a few different butters, like the mango & murumuru seed butters, this formula truly feels like butter when you apply it!
- Hyaluronic Acid: Known for its mega-moisturization benefits, hyaluronic acid will help make your lips look more plump by moisturizing, conditioning, & nourishing.
- Mango & Murumuru Seed Butters: Rich in fatty acids, these butters will smooth & soften your lips without leaving a greasy residue. They also help to lock in hydration by boosting your skin’s moisture barrier.
- Jojoba Seed & Avocado Oils: Known to mimic the skin’s natural lipids, these seed oils help retain moisture, which leaves your lips feeling soft & supple.
Another featured ingredient of this amazing ultra-moisturizing lip balm is Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Peel Oil, which is just a scientific way of saying orange peel oil! This lovely orange peel oil gives this lip balm a delicate orange vanilla scent! Anytime a Beautycounter product features a scent, you will be able to clearly see what makes up that scent on the ingredient label! Beautycounter also uses responsibly sourced vanilla in all of their lip products!
Lip Balm Benefits
What I love most about this Beautycounter Lip Balm is how moisturized my lips feel immediately after application. This balm won’t dry out your lips like typical lip balms can. This formula works to keep your lips nourished & conditioned while you wear it, which helps to smooth & soften your lips over time.
The texture of this Clean Swipe Balm is so creamy & will essentially melt onto your lips for lightweight, comfortable wear. Plus, it’s not sticky or greasy at all.
As mentioned, this Beautycounter Lip Balm is extremely easy to use! Simply swipe it on your lips throughout the day to condition & soften your lips!
This Beautycounter Clean Swipe Hyaluronic Lip Balm is clinically proven to moisturize & condition your lips, while simultaneously being SO effortless to apply! You’ll notice below that all 32 clinical trial participants said the formula applies effortlessly & glides on easily. This just confirms that this lip balm is a product everyone can feel comfortable wearing & applying no matter your level of makeup application skill!

The packaging of this lip balm is just gorgeous! It features a sleek gold bullet with a top & bottom that snaps shut. So you don’t have to worry about the cap coming off if the lip balm is in your purse! The slim, twistable bullet also helps create an effortless application! I really love the packaging of this balm.
This Clean Swipe Lip Balm comes in 4 shades & I consider them all a must have haha! They are super sheer & are flattering on all skin tones! When it comes to the shades, you can choose between three tinted, sheer shades & one clear shade!
- Nada: Translucent
- Pinch: Rosy Pink
- Plush: Warm Pink
- Bitten: Warm Berry
I’ve gone through Nada the most! I think I’ve gone through at least 3 tubes so far! Pinch is my second favorite shade because it’s very close to my own lip shade, so I love wearing it on days I’m not wearing much makeup! Each shade is really pretty, I wear at least one almost every single day!
Safety & Certifications
All of Beautycounter’s products are free from over 2,800 harmful or questionable ingredients. But they don’t stop there. Beautycounter sends all color cosmetics to a third party testing facility during formulation & then again at the end of the formulation. They also test every production batch, every single time they produce it. This third party testing focuses specifically on heavy metal contamination. Heavy metals are unfortunately extremely common in color cosmetics, especially ones that use natural pigments. Beautycounter tests for 12 heavy metals: arsenic, barium, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, & selenium.
In addition to being formulated without any harmful or questionable ingredients, this Clean Swipe Hyaluronic Lip Balm is certified Vegan, Cruelty Free, & is EWG Verified. This means the Environmental Working Group recognizes that this lip balm meets the strictest standards for human safety & health.
The Clean Swipe Hyaluronic Lip Balm is $22 in the United States & $29 in Canada. You can shop this balm here!
My favorite thing about Beautycounter’s makeup is the fact that I don’t have to sacrifice performance for safety. These luxurious lip balms are a perfect example of just that. If clean beauty is important to you & you’ve been on the hunt for a super hydrating balm, I know you’ll love these as much as I do!
