Name of the Product

LipIntervention Lip Balm by Zi Zai Dermatology


If you are looking for a lip balm which is nourishing and cures your habit of using lip balms a few times a day(or even a few times in an hour), LipIntervention is what you are looking for. It will help you break your habit of constantly looking for your lip balm.

LipIntervention is made 100% with natural ingredients and Chinese herbs.   

The product is created by Diana Hermann. She is an acupuncturist and herbalist. She created this product to help her to deal with dry weather in Colorado and broke her addition to hourly application of lip balms.

Pros and Cons


  • It is made 100% with natural ingredients

Most of the mass produced lip balms use petroleum, which is commonly used in many skin products. Yet, it is not natural. 

If you are the hardcore fan for natural ingredients, LipIntervention will tick this box for you. 

  • It delivers what it promises to break lip balm addition

I am one of those who will use lip balm almost every hour to keep my lips moistened. When I use LipInvention, I can apply it once after meals and I don’t feel the need to apply it again between meals. 

This is the biggest pros for this product as LipInvention delivers what it promised!

  • It is created by an acupuncturist and herbalist

As a keen supporter to Chinese medicine and acupuncture, I definitely support a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner with such a great invention. I sincerely hope more people find this little treasure and break their addiction to lip balm with non natural ingredients.  

  • Zi Zai has great product philosophy in everything they create  
    • 100% natural
    • Certified cruelty-free
    • No parabens
    • No petroleum
    • No artificial colors
    • No artificial fragrances


  • If you can’t bear a slightest smell of herb

When I open the cap of LipIntervention, I smell the familiar Chinese herb. It smells natural to me. 

Yet, if you can’t bear any smell of herb, this might not be the product for me. 

Disclaimer: after applying the balm to my lip, I can’t smell the herb. I only smell the herb when I put the balm closer to my nose.


If you are looking for all natural ingredient lip balm, I can only think of Burt’s Bees’ Beeswax Lip Balm. It is 4.25g (0.15iz) at $3.59. 

Yet, if you are looking for other lip products with Chinese herbs and help you break the addiction to lip balm, I have not yet found one. 

If you do, please reach out to me. I am very keen to try out new products.


If you want to stop applying lip balm several times a day, LipInvention lip balm is your choice! It is nourishing and helps fight dryness with 100% natural ingredients! 


I have no affiliate relationship with Zi Zai Dermatology.
