I've always had chapped lips, maybe because of the climate I live in, or it's just me. However, I absolutely hate most lip products. I have tried many products in order to change my horribly chapped lip situation, from regular classic Chapstick to fashionable EOS to expensive Mary Kate lip treatments/lip balm. After seeing several people use this product, I decided to grab one during my night time stroll. I didn't think much because the design is very old fashioned and I hate the color, however, the inside makes up for it. This product is great. It's not too glossy nor heavy. It's minty and fresh and my lips absorb it quickly. I would repurchase this product, definitely. My lips look fuller and feel incedredibly soft. This is a must have.
I used to have very dried chapped lips all year a couple years ago in my teenage years, luckily I've outgrown that. During that time I've tried so many lip balms including many different types of chapstick including the medicated one which worked alright, soft lips, carmex, nieva, blistex, recently EOS and so many others I can't count. I hated that feeling of lip balm just sitting on top of your lips, felt like it never soaked in, and lips were still always chapped. Chapped lips is not pretty and feels awful.
Then I tried Burt's Bees and never used another lip balm since. This is the only one that when applied felt like it didn't just sit on the lips but soaked in and help hydrate my lips. I love the slight minty feeling which feels amazing when applying to chapped lips. I've used this for about 4 years now and still love it and make sure I am stocked up with back ups whenever running low. I always have several open, one in my purse, one in my backpack, and one at home so I will never be without it.
Although a bit pricier (usually running $3) than some of the dollar lip balms, it's worth every penny.
-The smell is really nice! Minty, herbal smell. I wasn't sure what beeswax would smell like but I was pleasantly surprised lol
-The packaging is small and compact. Easy to take with you.
-Easy to find. I've seen it at cvs, walmart, walgreens, target, ect.
-Cheap! Got mine for 2 bucks.
-The texture is not the nicest. Kind of waxy (go figure, its beeswax). Not very smooth.
-I don't like how it feels on my lips. I love hydrating chapsticks that feel nourishing. This one just isn't it.
-Didn't make a difference in my lips. Kind of dried them out a bit.
I have yet to find anything that compares to my CARMAX lip balm. This isn't the greatest chapstick out there. Expected a bit better from burts bees because they do make nice products.
I'm not a fan of this lipbalm,it's too waxy and heavy on the lips and also it's not as moisturizing as I would like it to be. will not repurchase.
They changed the formula to Burts Bees since it was bought out by Clorox. I find it a lot more drying and it smells weird now.
If you're not happy with the new formula I found a better alternative: it's called Sierra Bees and you can buy it as Iherb (I got it as a free gift with purchase). Natural ingredients and works so well.
This product is a bit pricey for a lipbalm but so worth it. It may kind of burn if your lips are VERY VERY dry and you bite/lick them a lot but it does restore your lips to their natural state and is AMAZING. Definetly re-purchasing and highly recommend
For me the product isnt worth the hype. Its too waxy and the after 30 mins my lips starts to dry again the only thing I love about this product is the smell. Will not repurchase again.
This product is really incredible. For a cheap, sensible lip balm, it really delivers and I love the fact that it is totally natural. It makes my lips plump and tingly, and it is incredibly moisturizing. I have tried every lip balm/chapstick/lip butter out there, and this is really the only product that has really delivered. I highly recommend this to anyone. It smells fresh and clean, like mint and honey. It is very moisturizing, unlike Chapstick and Eos brands. It stays on for hours and you don't need to reapply as often as with other products. Highly recommend. HG product for me.
I've gone through a lot of these for a reason. I love how plump they make my lips look and feel. I live lip products that give me a nice tingly feeling such as this one. On days my lips are just dead and dry and ugly, I put this on a viola! Nice plump lips again. Its best under matte lipstick in my opinion. I have very full lips but they get dry and this really makes them as smooth as I want them to be.
Not only are my lips dry and chapped but they are also very sensitive to flavours. Over the years I've tried the rosebud salve lip balms, lip smackers and they've all just irritated my lips. Chapped dead skin is easily removed in the morning when I slap this on at night. Though some may not like the waxy feel of it or the peppermint, the original Burt's Bees is a must have in my opinion!!
