Formula Five Chili Lip Balm

Made with all-natural ingredients, this product moisturizes and nourishes—while adding some extra zing

Made with just cocoa butter, beeswax, avocado oil, almond oil and chili, Australian-made Formula Five lip balm is an all-natural way to moisturize, nourish and perfect your pout. Created and developed by Sarah James, the balm isn't only for chili enthusiasts. James is usually anti-spice herself, but likes the sensation it creates, "I hate eating chili. It makes my nose run and my eyes water, but I do like the 'hummm' it leaves on my lips."

But the 100% natural balm certainly isn't for everybody; after a few moments the chili is absorbed and creates a hot tingle on the wearer's lips that lasts for a couple of hours and seems to happen in waves. For us, it was actually a pretty thrilling sensation—especially on a brisk winter's day.

Formula Five is available online for $10 and at selected retailers. Just keep it away from your eyes, and kids.
