I usually buy the original peppermint Burt's Bees balm but decided to give this one a try. It glides on really smooth and is as moisturizing as Chapstick (which is always in my makeup case) - but with a better flavor. I prefer the Mango Butter lip balm to the Pomegranate Oil lip balm.
I love Burt's Bees! Had to grab this when it first came out and was instantly met with the smell of mangoes. It's very nourishing and glides on beautifully, as opposed to the original BB which feels a bit more waxy.
I really wanted to like this product. Seriously. The smell is divine. I seriously take it out just to smell it, and sometimes when I'm having a bad day, its smell makes me happier.
However, it doesn't nourish or moisturize ... at least not in the long run. It stays on for about half an hour, and for the first five minutes my lips feel silky smooth and absolutely amazing. Then it feels drier, or however my lips were before I applied this balm. It doesn't dry out my lips, it just doesn't do anything.
If I put a gloss over this, after the products dry up, my lips feel a lot better. So maybe if this mango balm didn't dry up so quickly, it would actually help my lips. But alone, it's rather useless.
I'm still going to use it under a gloss, because it does help my lips to a certain extent. I'm not going to buy another one, because it just doesn't do anything without a gloss.
I really like this! I used the one with the pomegranate oil before, and I also like that as well, but I kind of prefer the scent of this more. I think it moisturizes pretty much the same amount, but it's a tiny bit lighter and a little bit less waxy, so I like that. It's pretty cheap. I have no issues with it whatsoever, so I totally recommend it.
Eh, I'm not impressed. I've tried all of the Burt's Bees line, thinking this would be just as stellar as the others, and frankly, it's just ok. My reasoning is because I don't think this added any moisture to my lips. In fact, I think this is teetering on the drying side of the fence, meaning that I think it actually took some of the moisture my lips already had away. At the end of the day my lips were more dry with this than without. The scent is amazing though!
I have to say, this product is completely different from the original minty one that Burt's Bees has come out with. I LOVE this mango chapstick, it definitely is the type of chapstick I like to carry around with me, especially with how moisturizing it is for my lips! It lasts quite a while, I would say longer than my YTC Melon chapstick! It was $2.99 but worth it :) I definitely would keep purchasing this, it makes my lips soft and smooth, no cracking/chapped lips here!
MUA, you've done it again. I have been looking for a great lip balm because as winter approaches, my lips are super chapped. i tried the regular burt's bees lip balm (the peppermint one) but it made my lips super dry. so for a while i doubted burt's bees products until i looked up the ratings of lip balmson MUA and found the one with mango butter! oh goodness, i can't even describe how amazing it is. the smell is absolutely wonderful because it actually smells like mangoes. to be more specific, it smells like mangoes with a dash of orange but nevertheless heavenly! also, here's no aftertaste. it seems to moisturize immediately which is a huge plus! best of all, it's 1005 natural. def my HG lip balm.
HOlY GRAIL PRODUCT!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! For some reason, I have had THE most chapped lips a girl could ever seem to have, so of course, I was on a mission to find the lip balm that would save me and none ever seemed to work. Finally, I decide to come here as I have found many a Holy Grail product from searching here... and again, because of the great reviews, I decide to try this product. Suddenly, it was as if I had a new pair of lips. They were smooth, soft, and nice and pink! Like the lips I probably had when I was a baby probably. Anyways, I now know my lips can be beautiful again with this product. Thank you, Burts Bees for making a lip balm so wonderful and so affordable and so good smelling and so... effective. I feel like a new woman! Thank you!
Before this, I was using the EOS lip balm. As much as I loved cute egg packaging, I didn't find it moisturized much. It also had a sweet taste and I didn't like that. I was perusing the makeup aisle in Walmart and saw this as I was leaving. I've tried BB' before. But i didn't find the original (peppermint) very moisturizing. I read this contained mango butter so i thought i'd give it a try. First off, you dont' need much at all! It's very moisturizing and has a light pleasant scent. I would say it has a more blueberry than mango scent haha. I wear this under lipstick and before I go to bed at night. Retails for $4. Definitely will rebuy!!
So, i just bought this and i gotta say IM LOVING IT. so far it has proven to be really moisturising and there's no waxy feeling. One con is that it seems to be rather soft, and may get out of shape if you are one who slathers on the lipbalm so thickly with quite a lot of pressure(like my friend). So, be careful, keep it out of direct sunlight and don't place it anywhere near hot and stuffy places, like beside your laptop.
I would definitely get my hands on another one of this when im running out. It costs only $4.60SGD from the place i got it! :)
