Hello all beautiful #PulpBabes out there! I hope you’re surviving the dreadful Monday blues. We’ll get through this together.

So, I don’t know about you, but I love reading beauty product reviews! I have little to no knowledge in that area so reading others opinions and experiences with products I’m interested in is always my favorite thing to do. That being said, I never thought I would ever review an item myself! However, this was the BEST product to write my first review on! IMG_3238

Atomic Balm is a DIY lip balm shop based out of Southern California. Before receiving my package, I decided to do a little snooping for more info. What I immediately loved about the shop is that ALL the lip balm is not only handmade by some talented teens, but that they are made with all-natural ingredients! Call me crazy, but I kind of like knowing what’s going on my face when it comes to beauty products.

One look at their Instagram account and I fell in love with the packaging design! Super cute collage art AND they’re all unique. Your design is all your own! What’s also cool about Atomic Balm is that not only is the design custom, but the flavor and coloring are as well. I’ve always disliked being given specific and limited options when it comes to lip balm, so knowing I have a say in what I want makes all the difference! IMG_3236

As if all this isn’t enough, 1/2 of the profits brought in by Atomic Balm helps Zine Club in actually being able to print their zines! I’m all about The Pulp Zine’s sister sites and helping get their voices out there. I’m glad I get to do that and get some great lip balm!

Now, when it comes to my makeup, I am so boring. My go to is cat eye eyeliner, primer, mascara, sometimes lipstick, but ALWAYS lip balm. I live on lip balm. Lately, I had been having an issue where no matter how many times I’ve applied, my lips were becoming dry and just all around gross. I even tried switching brands and nothing seemed to help. Not only was it painful, it was so embarrassing. I was desperate to find a product that not only helped me, but that I enjoyed! So needless to say, I was SO excited to try out Atomic Balm. Upon receiving my package I was pleasantly surprised. Besides the super cute design, one of the first things I noticed was the size! It’s huge!!! To be exact, Atomic Balm is 3x bigger than the average lip balm. Such a great deal! Sadly, my photos don’t do the product any justice!

On your first application you can tell a difference right away. You’re getting pure natural product, not a bunch of chemicals. It smells SO nice and it goes on so smoothly. I honestly couldn’t believe it was homemade.

After 3 days I saw a huge difference. The proof was in my lips! My lips were no longer dry, chapped, and nasty. After what felt like FOREVER trying to fix the issue, Atomic Balm did what so many well known brands couldn’t in a matter of days! It’s been a month and not only do I STILL have so much product, it has maintained my lips moisture perfectly and provided consistent relief.


If you couldn’t already tell, I am now an Atomic Balm purist. It’s a great product and everyone should at least have one! It is such an amazing product that is now my new obsession. Be sure to grab your own now! You can find their shop here and check out/follow their dreamy Instagram!
