Journey to Moria is a lip balm inspired by Tolkien's beloved classics. The fresh notes of woodland and sweet herbs will bring your thoughts to rolling hills, deep lakes and majestic mountains.

The green colour comes from matcha powder, although it appears transparent on the lips (it is not a lip tint).

  • Recyclable aluminium container
  • Contains 11g balm (twice as much as regular chapstick)

Journey to beautiful lips

I’m a long time lord of the rings fan and I cannot resist anything that’s associated and even though the scent profile wasn’t initially a point that drew me in I have to say it’s absolutely lovely. It’s a very subtle scent but I like that, and the formula is, of course, very moisturising. I already had some lip balm on so I used a little bit on my cuticles to see what happened and I’m really happy with the texture!

Olivia Brennan

Bought this for my boyfriend and I literally can't stop stealing from it. He loves it too. It's just gorgeous. Smells fab, rich texture, cool theme.

Perfect lip balm!

This lip balm has been my saviour during this cold spell. You barely need any pressure to melt the product in the tin, and it just glides over the lips. This balm has easily replaced all the others I own, and is my absolute favourite out of the ones I bought! Will definitely be buying (many) more in the future!!

The Essence of Middle Earth

Amazing! Feels great on the lips, smells wonderful, and the green color is a fun touch! Defiantly will purchase again.

Wholesome and Hobbity!

All Vy's balms are amazing period, but this one in particular makes my hobbit heart so happy every time I take it out of my bag! The pine scent has me dreaming of walking through woods, and the colour of the balm is the perfect Shire shade of green. I will be repeat buying for sure!

Lord of the rings on my lips

Disregarding the fact that I already loved this lipbalm before I tried it (LOTR fan) this was exactly the scent I was looking for, and my favourite among the five I bought 😬 Lovely herby and piney, and a gorgeous shade of green 💚

Never go on an adventure without it

Love this lip balm, my absolut favourite. It smells of forest adventures during the cold season. The texture is silky smooth and it feels amazing on the lips. Bonus: I don't feel like I constantly need to top up, unlike with most commercial lip balms. It's just perfect. Always in my bag, and don't leave the house without it.
