Lip Balm for men? Interestingly enough there have been many inquiries requesting lip balm for men. We say Pin-up lip balm for all. The Boys Love Coconut lip balm has been a favorite of our male fanbase from its inception, hence the label. Andrew K. of San Diego recently wrote in raving about our Coconut lip balm. Andrew, an active surfer, golfer and all-around outdoor guy, attests to the protective moisturizing qualities of Pin-up lip balm without that greasy, heavy feeling. As soon as his pix arrives, we’ll post so you can see for yourself, okay it doesn’t hurt that he is as good looking as his lips are - Thanks Andrew!
Pin Up Balms are packed with avocado oil, beeswax, and Vitamin E, providing every Pin Up girl with top-rate lip nourishment. With many flavors to choose from, there’s one to suit all moods. At one time or another you will experience chapped lips. Trust me, dry, cracked lips are no picnic, it interferes with all those simple activities that we take for granted such as smiling, kissing, eating and talking.
There are several known causes for chapped, dry lips:
- Over-exposure to wind, sun, and cold, dry air
- It might be due to certain medications
- LL Cool J makes it look good but a habit of frequently licking your lips can be a direct cause of dry chapped lips
- Dehydration - are you getting enough water?
It has been our experience that our use of avocado oil and natural ingredients found in Pin Up Lip Balm can treat and/or prevent chapped lips. We have recently added a natural sunscreen formula which helps combat sun exposure. You won’t know until you try and in case your wondering, yes Virginia, The Boys Do Love Coconut!

The Hollywood Habitat for Humanity held its 4th annual Power Women Power Tools on July 18th & 19th. The ladies traded in heels for hammers and set out to build 3 homes in the City of Lynwood. “Habitat for Humanity has always held special place in my heart, even moreso with the recent devastation of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans,” says owner Henriette Burbank.
“My husband is a New Orleans native and our family in New Orleans lost everything, I mean everything.” Through it all, there is faith, and there is strength, and no one exemplifies this more than our 87-year old Maw Maw, Mrs. Lydia Cecile Broyard who has chosen to rebuild.
I know what the devoted, selfless volunteers that donate their time in service of Habitat for Humanity have done for the communities in and around New Orleans. Being a gift bag sponsor came easy. There was no question or doubt that if I couldn’t pick up a hammer and join them, I was going to do something. In French we say, L’union fait la force - and that couldn’t be more true of the spirit of Habitat for Humanity.
The Pin-up girl super sentimental to Lisa Kline, and this is where the love story begins. Pin up submitted their line for the Designer Contest at Stylehive and no one could have been more surprised when Chris Kensler AKA Spellingbee at Hivedaily - the Stylehive blog contacted Henriette to tell her personally that she had indeed won the contest. “I am soooooo glad that Chris K. and I were communicating through Blackberrys, I would have screamed his ear off (grinning ear to ear), this is truly an honor. It’s really one thing to work hard and take pride in the product that you design but to be crowned by the Queen, Lisa Kline, herself is truly an honor. We at Pin up are really looking forward to all the great opportunities that lie ahead for us, this is only the beginning!” says Henriette Burbank.
