I was skeptical about a balm packaged in a cardboard tube, but thought I'll try it and see. Genius idea! The cardboard packaging is sturdy, easy to push the product up, and eco-friendly! No plastic to toss when empty. The [Peppermint Stick] balm smells wonderful, not overpowering and is easily applied to my lips.

...I've also been using Tallow Balm on my lips instead of Chapstick. I was "addicted" to putting on chapstick, but now since using the tallow balm, my lips appear much healthier! (Don't have the urge to use Chapstick, since they aren't chapped :)) I would highly recommend trying tallow balm for ANY skin condition!

BEST Lip Care Product I Have Used!
Love this product! First, I like knowing that I am using a product that's actually healthy for me to use. No chemicals, no fragrant scents born in a laboratory. Second, the product works great! I live in a dry climate, and my lips get easily dry and cracked. One application and I immediately see and feel a difference. Plus! This product [Citrus Shine Tube Tallow Balm] has a mild, pleasing citrus scent. I'm sensitive to overpowering scents in many of today's skin care products. This one is just right. Third, the product is offered at a tremendous value. At half an ounce this product will last three times as long as a regular tube of lip balm. And finally, most important, the next time you are in a grocery or drug store pick up a tube of lip balm by major manufacturers and read over the ingredients. Look at all the chemicals in them! Not just any chemicals, but chemicals that are actually toxic for you, chemicals that disrupt the function of your hormones, chemicals that are proven cancer-causing, chemicals that actually irriate the skin! Talk about ironic. And don't forget that synthetic fragrances contain hundreds of chemicals in a single fragrance mixtrure. NO THANKS! I would rather spend my money on a product that actually works and has ingredients that are actually going to be healthy for me to use. Again, great product!

I have had the worst chapped and dry lips for about 1.5 years. I used and tried everything out there, natural and toxic stuff. Then I remembered about your products and how they cured my daughter of diaper rash and helped my acne out in the past. So I gave it a try. I started using the Tallow Balm 2-3x a day, and within a week I was shocked. My lips are back to normal. After that week, the thick dry layer that had been on my lips was finally peeling away. I was in disbelief. I am so relieved. I will never buy any more chapstick EVER.

lip rash comfort
I've had a rash on my lips for a year and a half. I would get puffy, bury, itchy, crusty lips. The only thing I knew to help it was cortisone ointment. So that is what I was using all this time. Someone recommended the unscented tallow balm to me, so I tried it. Its given me relief from my rash, and relief from using such a harmful ointment. I wish I would have known this long ago, but I'm grateful to have a natural remedy for my ongoing skin issues. Thank you.

I bought this because of the convenience of the tube for my 7 year old daughter. It has been so great! She loves to use it, and it cleared up her cracked bleeding dry lips in one week!!

I've only had my tube of balm for a couple days, but I'm already impressed. I rubbed it into my lips, and had almost an instant moment of realizing chapstick is a total lie. First night it just sat on my lips like lip balm, my lips were so dehydrated it took over night for it to drink it up. Second day lips felt great when I woke up, noticed when I went to put on my balm again it took less product this time, and there was no more "glossy-slippery" feel anymore, because my lips are hydrated, now I'm just protecting them. Today I woke up, balm still on, ate, did my morning routine, its nearly noon, my lips still feel hydrated, I'm just now putting on the balm on my lips AND face. My skin is beautiful instantly! Holy wow I look younger. Can't want to get my full tub of this stuff to start using for skincare.

This tube tallow balm is AMAZING!
This tube tallow balm is AMAZING! I have been using it for a week now and have noticed a huge difference. I put it on my lips at night right before I got to bed, and in the morning when I wake up it is still on, and my lips feel silky and smooth. Before using the tube tallow balm, I put bag balm on my lips at night as it seemed to work, but by the middle of the day my lips would be chapped and dry. I don't notice any dryness with the tallow balm by the middle of the day. My lips remain moisturized through out the day and I don't need to constantly reapply, which I find I had to do with regular chapstick brands. A little goes a long way, and I really like the easy application of the tube. It rolls on just like any regular old chapstick. I have the vanilla scented, and I really like how subtle the smell is. If you are constantly battling dry, chapped, cracked lips this tube is definitely for you. I can't recommend it enough.

Great beeswax-free lip balm
The lip balm goes on smooth and is very soothing. As I'm allergic to bee products while coconut oil irritates my skin, it's usually harder for me to find a natural lip balm I can use consistently. The value for this lip balm is also incredible. It's a much larger size (while still totally pocket friendly) than your standard small lip balm packages and the amount you need per application is so little. Even those with very dry or cracked lips won't need more than two or three applications per day.

...I have this bad habit of occasionally biting my lips, so they tend to get raw and chapped. Your Tallow Balm is so soothing and nourishing, and it really makes my lips softer. Plus, if I do bite my lips, it's okay, because the Tallow Balm is edible and totally safe!

I just got it in the mail yesterday, and I applied it to my lips first. They instantly became fuller. I was so surprised. I applied it again and again.... They look like they did like when I was in middle school! Next my face.... My skin is so soft and supple! I am very excited. For people considering buying this, they shouldn't be put off by the small jar! It goes a long way, and it has no "bad stuff" in it. Thank you, Vintage Tradition!

I'd had a split lip for about a year and a half. I tried everything to heal it—from regular old chapstick to natural oils and shea butter—but nothing worked. I used Vintage Tradition for two weeks, my lip healed, and it's been healed ever since.

My mother-in-law gave us a jar a few weeks ago. We love it. My husband used it on his lips when he had an allergic reaction to something. It was the only thing that soothed his discomfort.
