Smooth, silky, creamy, rich, buttery goodness for your lips, these lip balms are made with organic virgin argan oil, nature's "liquid gold," organic virgin jojoba, organic virgin cocoa butter, organic virgin coconut oil, unrefined beeswax, organic olive oil and vitamin E (from Non-GMO Sunflower oil) to keep your lips soft, supple, healthy, and glowing.
Lanolin Intensive Lip Therapy
This lip balm was developed for lips in serious need of serious help. Chock full of lanolin, one of nature's ultimate moisturizers, lanolin not only drenches your lips in rich moisture it also locks it in for the toughest winter days. Lanolin along with the essential oil blend of eucalyptus, tea tree, rosemary, and peppermint which offers cooling, soothing help for sore, chapped lips can also help your lips recover from too much sun exposure no matter the season.
This balm is also great choice for sore, chapped noses suffering from colds and allergies as well as cheeks suffering from outdoor exposure.
Made with the addition of an organic Vanilla Bourbon Co2 extract which is made from organic Madagascar vanilla beans, this lip balm not only smells wonderful, but also has medicinal benefits from the vanilla bean. The aroma is warm, creamy and sweet. This Co2 extraction method is far more costly than the multi-stage process used to create the flavors we use in our other natural lip balms, as it is a total extraction. This means the extract retains many of the beneficial components from the original plant.
Our labels for this lip balm currently say Vanilla Absolute, but we chose to move away from using Vanilla Absolute as there can be a residue of alcohol left with an Absolute.

The LANOLIN INTENSIVE lip balm is the best for really dry lips. It penetrates and soothes chapped lips. I use it everyday during the winter months. Now my lips are always smooth.
I absolutely love AVNS lips balms! They keep my lips soft, moist and supple for a long time. Love the different smells too! I keep them everywhere....my purse, my car, my bathroom. Can't live without them! Thanks for making such great natural products!
The lip balm goes on smooth and makes my lips feel less dry and chapped. It's a good lip balm.
I'm sorry to say my experience with this product is not like the other glowing reviews listed here. I really wanted to like this! I purchased both the plain and the vanilla bean. The scent and silky texture are wonderful, and upon application there is a nice cooling sensation similar to Carmex. But then I immediately feel my lips tightening, and after a few moments they feel drier than they were before. The more I reapply, the worse my lips react. The first day I tried it, I used nothing but this lip balm all day, and by the end of the day my lips were red and irritated, and needed something else to soothe them. Perhaps I am allergic to one of the ingredients. If I use it with a layer of lip gloss over it, it seems to be fine. I bought a couple extra of these on sale to give as gifts to family members; if they have a better experience, I will update my review.
This is the best lip balm I have ever tried! I got the vanilla bean and it smells so good that I want to eat it!
I love how the balm doesn't feel thick on my lips. It does a great job! I want to use it for longer before saying this but I wish you won't discontinue this one!
LOVE this new Mocha lip balm. The best formula, soft, never grainy, moisturizing without feeling sticky or slippery. And the scent... the BEST. It is a huge pick me up in the middle of the day...Yes, I can be found just smelling my lip balm. So what?! :) The flavor too is mild but nice, so good my 3 year old asks for this all the time! I love this, cannot wait to try the vanilla next!!!
I used to use thick lip ointments for my severely chapped lips. They worked, but would leave an unpleasant film on my lips after awhile. Since using the lanolin lip balm, I have thrown away the ointment. I hardly need to reapply this balm during the day, and there is no film...just smooth, soft lips! I don't even feel the need to put lipstick on top because it makes my lips look naturally nice!
I ordered the 3-pack, have only tried the Vanilla Bean so far. I don't know if it's the Argan in it that makes the difference?....but whatever it is, THANK YOU! I don't bite the dry skin off my lips anymore....no need to! They are now moist and smooth. You have created an excellent product.
It was very cold when I received this and I was afraid it was going to be one of those that are too hard. I was pleasantly surprised! This makes my lips feel soft, smooth and healthy. The price is right too so I will buy this again.
The balm feels good and keeps my lips moisturized. But I don't like the smell. I did not notice it had the eucalyptus and peppermint oil in it. I don't like those but will use it because it works really well and feels smooth and not sticky.
I didn't think I could love a lip balm more than burt's, but this is so amazing!! I just ordered the lanolin intensive lip therapy, but definitely will be ordering the other two next time! My lips have been super dry this winter, and this has been a life saver. Also, the smell is lovely.
I use this numerous times daily to keep my lips moist. I feel better about using a natural product and this one works great for me.
does not smell or feel like the same lip balm I have gotten in the past... I am disappointed!! AVNS response: I'm sorry for your disappointment! I want to assure folks that we haven't changed our recipe or ingredients. Everything is exactly the same on this end.
The headline says it all. The vanilla bean is incredibly soft and wonderful feeling once on the lips
This really seems to live up to it's claims. Really like it.
I bought this set as a birthday gift for a friend. I had given her just the Mocha flavored balm a while ago, and she said several times how much she likes it. Hoping that the set will last her a good long time.
I love all of these balms! They go on so nicely, feel great on, and stay on! Thank you!
I am addicted to this lip balm. Smells great, goes on smooth, not heavy or greasy. Keeps my lips smooth and moisturized. Don't know how I got along without it. Won't use anything else on my lips from now on.
I get dry cracked lips! I have tried many brands, natural brands. The lanolin intensive lip therapy is my favorite. I like the scent, the feel, the healing. I've even used it on my fingers when there are small cracks during the dry winter. Got some for my family too and they comment on how much they like lanolin intensive lip therapy.
I've searched the Internet for lip balms and ingredients. I ended up purchasing from two different vendors. My second time purchasing, I came straight to AV! The best lip balm with the best feel on your lips.
I never had any problems with my drugstore lip balms, but this totally changed my opion on EVERYTHING. The moment it touches your lips you know its a keeper.
Great product, surely going for more, especially with winter coming up.Never had dried or cracked lips anymore after stared using it!
This product is great and very reasonably priced, considering the quality of ingredients. I have never been so impressed with a company, in fact I even wrote Natalie a direct e-mail about her products being so wonderful! For anyone that's new to this website, all of their products are worth giving a chance, because I guarantee there will be a product you fall in love with! There products are so well- crafted, gentle on the skin, and healthy! Also, I have dealt with sensitive skin and allergies for many years of my life, excluding me from using those Bath and Body Work products that so many of my friends use. I'm happy to say I can now use products that smell even better than those name brand/market products but are also doing wonders for my health and skin. Thank you Apple Valley!
...once I tried this lip balm! It's better than anything I've ever used. We ordered the vanilla bean version. Hubby, kids, myself all love it! Not sticky (HUGE pet peeve against sticky lip stuff) not waxy, not greasy. Just smooth as can be and lasts a long time.
This is the only lip balm I purchase. I have bought a lot BUT since finding this jewel, this is all I buy. It really does moisten and sooth your lips. In fact, my teenage boys are willing to use it when needed!
I like the feel of these chapsticks going on. It feels so much smoother than standard chapsticks which often have a goopy feel. I also adore the mocha flavor. Vanilla didn't do as much for me; it's more of a plain taste than it is a vanilla one.
All I need now is a string to put them around my neck and I will probably loss weight because all these are so very satisfying. PLEASE bring back the coco mint one you were giving away late last year. LOVE, LOVE, Love that one.
This has become a staple item in my purse, make-up bag and in my coat pocket. So many lip balms leave my lips feeling chapped or dry but this one truly moisturizes and heals. Vanilla Bean has been a favorite.
I love the Vanilla Bean and Mocha Smooch! I am not a big lipbalm user at all. They are all either too waxy, too smelly, too strong, too "do nothing", etc. This one is perfect. So perfect I tossed all my other not to be named, "natural" lip balms. I just apply once at night and once in the morning before I go running and my lips stay soft and smooth!
Lanoline intensive is my favorite lip balm hands down! I have a tube pretty much everywhere :) You will not be disappointed if you try this lip balm
I never dreamed that I would find a lip balm that I liked better than the one I’d been using nightly for almost two years, but here it is. The Lanoline Intensive balm is simply amazing. It isn’t greasy or sticky, (the one I used to use was horribly sticky) it smells good, and it doesn’t break my face out when my husband has it on and kisses me on the cheek! The Vanilla Bean balm is also amazing. I only had it for a week before I accidentally fed it to my washer and dryer. I don’t use much of anything on my lips throughout the day, but I found myself using the Vanilla Bean balm on a regular basis, even making excuses to use it, and have been doing the same with the Lanolin Intensive since I washed the Vanilla.
love this! my lips crack and split daily and this stuff really has helped without giving me that gooey feeling most other lip balms do. and they are getting better!
I was surprised and impressed at how smooth and creamy this was. So nice.
This lip balm has done amazing job for me. I was very pleased with your product. The lanolin is good for healing chapped lips.
This lip stuff is great! I'm trying to wean myself off of the store bought stuff and this is helping me. Smells great and feels good!
We got the Vanilla Bean and I gave it to my 16 year old daughter and she really likes it!
This is the perfect lip balm it has a nice subtle scent and is SO soft.
My lips get so dry that I can't be without my lip balm. I've started using this and I feel I can go much longer between applications.
I bought this out of desperation because my lips were so dry and none of the commercial lip balms were helping. I'm pregnant and I liked the idea of it being all natural. I can't believe how much better it works than my other lip balms. I keep one in my make up bag and one in my purse. I'll definitely be reordering this. The vanilla is my favorite.
This is the best I've used.
This is the best lip balm I've ever used, and I have tried A LOT OF LIP BALMS over the last few decades. It goes on smoothly, evenly, not too thick, super moisturizing, but not greasy, leaves a nice matte look to the lips, and lips are immediately softer and the moisturizing effect is long-lasting. I started with the Intensive Lip Therapy and will now try them all.
This is the best lip balm for my severely dry lips. I use the Lanolin Intensive Lip Therapy and one application keeps my lips soft! I used to try another organic store brand, but it only moisturized for an hour and left a greasy feel. Not anymore after using this!
I bought the lanolin and it works very well. It feels so soft going on, like lotion. I've never had a lip balm like that, even amongst natural lip balms. Definitely buying again.
I love this lip balm. It is half the price of my usual lip balm and works WAY better. I don't have to continuously re-apply. Thanks for another AWESOME product!
I have used Carmex for years, but switched to Apple Valley several months ago. Love them. They slide easily and smell so light and good. Very healing too.
I usually have issues with chapped lips in the winter but using the Mocha Smooch Balm this winter kept the dryness at bay. I found my older kids sneaking into my night stand numerous times to "borrow" some!
I've tried lots of natural lip balms, and I have to say these are the best! We have Vanilla Bean, and it is smooth and luxurious. Love them!
I love the Lanolin Intensive! It works better than anything else I have tried. I've even been known to use it on my hands when they're completely wrecked from washing too many dishes. It's great!!
I have the Lanolin Intensive Therapy lip balm. I used to try to not use lip balm too often, because it would just dry my lips out. This one doesn't at all, it's one of the best lip balms I have tried!!
I LOVE this lip balm. I have to confess...I have a bit of a chapstick/lip gloss fetish. My skin is really sensitive and a lot of lip balms irritate my skin or have a yucky after taste. (Not to mention most of them are terrible for you and have really gross stuff in them. NOT so with this one. YEAH!). I have heard they are easy to make but alas...a good one is hard to come by. :0) So when I say I love this lip balm, it is no small thing! I purchased the mocha smooch and it smells, tastes, and feels heavenly.
This is great for dry chapped lips and does not have any funky after-taste. Great item!
