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.
The tingly feeling I got eventually irritated my lips. Especially when they were cracked. It dried out my lips, I found out.
Best lip balm! My lips get quite dry all year round, so not just Winter, but also Summer, Spring, Autumn. This just soothes my lips and makes it super soft. It has a peppermint smell, and gives you a lasting peppermint tingle which lasts for 10 - 30 min. And the best thing for me about this is that it's not greasy! I put lots of lip balm on, and it's not sticky at all! Love this lip balm, definitely a must have! YOU WON'T REGRET!
I prefer Kiehls and Jack Black for my often chapped lips but as a basic lipbalm, for the cost and effectiveness I recommend these lip balms.
I can't live without my Burt's Bees Lip Balm. The Peppermint oil is refreshing, it doesn't leave a residue and it doesn't have any gloss, so it's perfect for a MUA to use on an actor/model who wants a more natural look. I also use it as a primer/moisturizer before applying any lip color to models. It's fantastic.
