I'm a chapstick lover. I'm almost always wearing something on my lips. I have a bunch of chapstick tubes scattered all around my house. Burts Bees is my absolute favorite. It's amazing. If I get dry lips (happens often in winter here), it makes them soft and awesome feeling pretty dang quick. Within an hour. I get VERY dry lips when I'm outside without something protecting them. Bleeding, scaly, disgusting lips. Most other stuff usually takes a day or so to make my lips feel smooth again. It also feels really good. I generally dislike minty things (including other minty lip stuff), so I'm not sure why I really like the taste and feel of this. It's mild, but still a tiny bit tingly.
One thing I really like about Burts Beez Wax is that it is all natural ( I know this because Whole Foods dosen't carry anything that isn't 100% natural and they have this on the shelves)
That being said, I feel more comfortable putting this on my lips knowing that there aren't some wild chemicals that I am putting in my system everytime I put on my lip balm.
Regarding effectiveness, it worked reasonably well. The taste and texture is nice, a lot more reasonable than carmax. It is a decent product, nothing special in my opinion.
I like this; I find it to be pretty inexpensive compared to what I've seen at Sephora, lasts long and isn't fussy. I don't have a huge chapped lip problem (although I do have very dry skin) so it does the trick. If you have specific issues or needs you may need something more hardcore.
Only cons - the label peels off easily and gets all dirty-ish where the sticker was. I just end up peeling it off completely. Also, i agree with what someone else said about it not being a good base for lipstick... Too waxy.
I absolutely do not see the hype. Burt's Bees is really expensive for a drugstore brand but my mother is in love with Burt's Bees. Okay lip balm honestly, nothing special except the minty cooling effect.
It's okay. I use this at night, it does it's job and makes my lips smell minty. I hate how hard it is though, I feel like I have to really push and drag it across my lips several times before I feel like I have enough on. Thankfully I didn't have to pay for this, I got it as a gift with some other burt's bees products. Won't purchase.
It is a really nice product with mostly natural ingredients. But, I cannot use it... I wish I could. Unfortunately ,there is peppermint oil in it and my lips are sensitive. The balm would have been great for me without the peppermint. I liked how it wasn't too sticky and mattifying.
I was using the product in the winter and didn't think the peppermint oil was the culprit. Since it was Canadian winter, I just thought my lips were getting dry from the weather. One day I misplaced the lip balm, so I got a another one (brand). My lips changed...for the better. Then I found the lost lip balm, started using it again and my lips began to chapped terribly. That is when I began to realise what was happening. I immediately stopped using it and my lips got better.
Other users will like it, but it's not for me. I will continue to use Burt's Bees products but certainly not this balm.
Currently on the second stick, best lip balm for me so far. It leaves a slight minty taste & smell after application. It helps to moisture the lips well, without making it feel super dry after the layer you've applied went off. As for the price it's kind of on the high end at where I am living at, where lip balms can be easily picked up at drugstores for one third of burt's bee lip balm price.
My one and only chapstick. I was on Accutane (cystic acne treatment) which causes severely dry lips, this was the only thing that helped or even worked on my poor lips! =D
I used to use Burt's beeswax every time I would go to the snow. It really didn't help my champing compared to carmax. Carmax worked ten times better even though it tastes and smells very bad, it's super effective when you are in intense weather. I will not be buying Burt's bees wax again
My go-to lip balm. It has a minty feeling that makes my lips tingly for a little bit. One stick lasts me ages.
