I sort of agree with the majority about the scent of this lip balm. It is a strange smell, not necessarily a bad smell, just a little strange. Although, I did take a whiff of actual honey and realized that this lip balm is pretty darn close-- maybe a little less sweet smelling.
I actually like how this lip balm feels on my lips. I cannot stand super moisturizing, sticky, slimey, gooey stuff on my lips, such as Vaseline. I only use Vaseline if my lips are extremely, unbearably chapped. Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm applies smoothly and moisturizes my lips without making them feel sticky or slimey. It feels natural and I hardly notice it. All that I notice is that my lips smell like honey and feel really soft and kissable.
As a lip balm, this is decent. It feels drier going on than some others. It seems like I have to apply more in order for my lips to slide easily when I rub them together, although it doesn't seem to dry out my lips at all. It doesn't give a sheen as many other balms do, either. And it's definitely superior to the original formula I tried a few years ago that seemed to make my lips even drier than before. However, the scent is so odd and strong that I won't repurchase after I finish out the tube. Perhaps there's some difference between the "honey" behind this product and the honey I've tasted and smelled (including fragranced beauty products) elsewhere, but it's definitely not the sweet, somewhat comforting smell I was hoping for.
While I don't mind the smell of the product like some people do, I have to admit I was expecting more with the reputation Burt's Bees has. Before wearing lipstick/liner etc I like to put gloss on my lips because they tend to be dry. The base I usually use: Rosebud Salve or Vaseline can change the look of the lipstick and make it almost slide... so for the purpose of putting down a base before wearing lip product - this chapstick is awesome. However in terms of what it actually does for your lips in term of moisturizing them... well plain old vaseline is better for that purpose. I found this to not be very rich, and needed frequent reapplication. Would buy this again only if I can't find another good base for lipsticks.
I don't like this at all, but have been using it on my cuticles so it doesn't go to waste. I won't purchase it again.
Contrairy to most people here, I love this lipbalm more then the original! Nothing bad about it! I always freak out if I can't find one of my 3 tubes. Enjoy!
I really hate this lip balm. It really stinks and tastes bad. But, it does work to smooth out my dry lips so I gave it 2 lippies. I would not buy again.
Man i usually love burts bees products but i really dont care for this at ALL. I think like alot of people its mostly the smell that turns me off, its so strong! ..and i dont even think it smells like honey, i dont know it really bothers me, i tried it and had to wipe it off. If you want to try burts bees i'd get the original flavor in the tin! So much better.
I generally like this lipbalm if my lips are already in pretty good shape. It coats nicely, adds a touch of moisture and is a good base for lipstick or stains. The smell is pretty good too. If my lips are in bad shape there is nothing like Aquaphor to heal them. This balm sits at my desk and I do use it everyday.
I seem to be one of the few that actually really enjoys this product. Its probably the most moisturizing out of all burts bees lip balms. I loooove that theres no tingle or menthol. It feels good on irritated lips. The smell is weird but I got over it. It doesn't bother me at all I can't smell it after its on & I have really sensitive sense of scent. Its not greasy and theres no funky taste.
It is easy to apply and can be used as a sealer of other creamy lip treatment. Usually my lips feel dry within half an hour after lip balm. The way I am using this wax is to apply it after Carmex lip balm. This can seal the balm and I don't have to apply it for hours.
It works well by itself as well. I will probably try another flavor next time but I am happy with it overall.
