I have been using this lip balm my whole life! I've tried EOS, Nivea, The Body Shop, Vaseline and Vaseline-typw products, that weird stuff in a blue tub, you name it! I always come back to this. I love how this sinks into my lips and actually MOISURIZES. Nivea is a thick, heavy greasy coat of goop that sits on top of your lips and remains really wet. EOS does nothing for me, but it smells nice! Body Shop lip balm is also okay, and same with Vaseline etc. but none of them even compare to this! I will make a pros and cons list so I don't keep talking about other random stuff.
-Sink in/no awful greasy residue
-Smells really good (mmm peppermint)
-That burning feeling you get when you put it on (it's amazing. wow I'm such a freak)
-Not really expensive
I recommend this 100% and will continue to use this for the rest of my life! This is my hg lip balm!
My go-to lip balm. Moisturizes my lips, and stays on. I have been using this for years now. I always try other balms, but always find myself coming back to this one. Love the tingling minty sensation!
I'm predisposed to like anything with beeswax in it, but I think the stiff dose of peppermint (while tasty) is just too irritating for my lips. This isn't as rough as the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers are, but if I'm already chapped this balm doesn't do me a bit of good -- even Chapstick is better. Rats.
Ehhhh... This product is just okay to me. I realize that it's made from beeswax, but the formula is still a bit too thick for my liking. I like the fresh minty smell, and the light tingly sensation you get after applying, but the consistency isn't for me.
This product is a staple in my purse all year round. My 14 year old daughter is now experimenting with a few of the tinted Burts Bees, but she also uses this product year round. This product goes on thick and you immediately feel it's "tingly" benefit (added plus - it smells great). It moisturizes your lips and is long lasting (no need for continual reapplication throughout the day). Before I discovered this product my lips were constantly damaged due to sun and extreme cold exposure (I'm constantly outdoors, regardless of the temperature). In the past my lips would be so painful I would constantly be sipping water just to soothe them. I would apply one lip balm after another with minimal benefit. Burts Bee solved all that.... I apply it once in the morning and once before bed and it keeps my lips looking and feeling amazing. This is a healing, nurturing product. Burts Bee sets the standard in lip care in my opinion. It just doesn't get any better.
I find this better than other lip balms I've tried because it really does the job. It's100% natural as well! It has a sort of minty smell which I personally love, but if you don't like it, it's pretty strong so don't get this product. It doesn't make your lips sticky and has a cooling sensation when you put it on. I bought it in the tin (the sticks were out of stock) so it's a bit more annoying to apply but I love this product! Great for the cold weather which makes my lips so dry- and you dont have to reapply so often!
Burt's Bees is one of the best lip product brands for healing lips. It's made from natural ingredients and provides excellent hydration, perfect for cold winter days, or those days when your lips are dry, cracked, and BLAH. You can get tinted ones, medicated ones, and MORE. I love this lip balm, but the reason that I won't repurchase is because I have other lip balms that I depend upon, and I think they work better for me.
I bought this after checking out the opinions on here and I am really pleased that I did. The British weather does my lips no favours and sometimes they can get really, really dry. Its horrible and I have tried quite a few lip treatments!
This worked really quickly on me and I try to keep it in my coat pocket or handbag so it's always at hand as I tent to forget to use it if it's not there at the time.
It smells lovely, lasts ages and isn't at all sticky.
I bought two so I always had one but my boyfriend found it so now he has one too, he loves it!
I did find though that the best thing for my lips when they are really dry or sore is using Burts Bees Res- Q ointment. I put it on before bed and when I wake up my lips are so much better. I then use this during the day!
I didn't like this balm at first, but I've fallen absolutely head over heels for it recently! I got sick of the generic lip balms making my lips feel sticky and clammy, so I tried this balm that I had sitting in my drawer. It's sooo delightful. I use it constantly throughout the day and always before applying a lippy. Even on hot summer days, it's nice because it cools your lips and DOES NOT stick! I now have about four of these (not including the other flavors!) and keep them everywhere. ;)
I dont really like this product, but I always have it around as something to fall back on.
The first few times you use it (Ive been on and off with this stuff for years), it makes you think its the absolute best thing you have ever put on your lips. Then, once you start using it all the time, you notice that it makes your seemingly smooth lips flake about? It feels like the stuff just compounds on your mouth, instead of actually absorbing and moisturizing. Once it just sits there for a while, it just starts flaking out and is nasty.
This product is also completely useless in the winter if you get seriously dried out and chapped lips. Like I said, it just sits there! If your lips are super chapped already, it just makes everything look 10000 times worse. If you are looking for a real cure for seriously chapped lips, I would suggest Neosporin Lip Health, or even Baby Lips.
Burts is a JOKE for real lip moisture, OK if you are absolutely DESPERATE. continued >>
