Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm

10:01 pm

Hello!

Lip balm for me is an essential product. I am never without a lip balm. I rarely use lipstick/lipgloss as I am allergic to most (unfortunately), so a good lip balm is always my companion. I have to be very picky in the lip balm's I choose too, as I have had sensitivity to certain brands before. I do love lipstick, but I prefer the look of natural, healthy, moisturised lips.

The Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm has been my favourite this year (I have been too scared to try something new!) and it's such a lovely product. It has a minty smell and slightly tingles up on application. It's easily applied and hydrates lips instantly. It helps recover chapped lips - I even use this as a substitute for Vaseline! It leaves my lips super soft! This lip balm was the Winner in the Specialist Skincare category for the Debenhams Beauty Club Awards 2011 too!

Burt's Bees use all natural ingredients in their products, and in this case, the hero is beeswax. Now before you start wondering what beeswax is, let me tell you:

"A natural wax made by bees in the cell walls of honeycombs, this substance is a natural emulsifier used in cosmetics. It adds a wonderful natural smell and colour to products and helps to seal and protect the skin when used in moisturizing formulas"



When I apply this, my lips stay moisturised for about 4 hours and I don't need to reapply straight away either. The stick/tube lasts forever, I still haven't finished mine and I've been using it everyday for almost a year. It is also available in a tin if you prefer that to a stick/tube. They have other variations available too (see them here), and are all priced at £3.69. They have tinted versions too (see them here) which I'm contemplating trying - these are £5.99. If you have used the tinted ones then please let me know!

What are your favourite lip balms that you would recommend? Please share below - I am forever on the lookout for a new trustable lip balm!

Lots of buzzzzzing love! (I'm not sorry for this pun! Hehe)

  3. I'll have a look at this one when next in a store that stocks it; I also apply lip balm regularly (at least three times a day) although it'd be nice to switch up my usual routine of using Vaseline to occasionally try something different! :)
