I bought this lip balm because I know everyone raves about it and I wanted to know if I could jump on the bandwagon. I can't say that I've enjoyed this lip balm much. It sat on top of my lips and I never felt it sink it, it just glided right off. Also, the scent and flavour of the product is mint which isn't a flavour/scent I like it all plus, its really strong. If you don't have very dry lips and don't mind a very strong mint formula, this might be for you.
- Bought for $1.99 at cosmetic warehouse sale
- My lips are semi-dry during the winter
- Leaves my lips feeling waxy & minty after application
- Great for hot humid climates: lip balms have a tendency to melt or snap but this one stays in tact and doesn't leave your lips too greasy
- Not moisturizing enough for winter/dry climates
- I find myself reapplying often
- Mintiness stings my lips if they're dry
- Does not improve flaky lips
Bottom line: Does not serve purpose well, but OK for summer use. continued >>
This is a HG item of mine. I've used it for so many years and can see myself always using it. I also use the Jack Black lip balms when I need something with more saturation, but this has such amazing accessibility and performance that I still continue to use it on an everyday on the go basis. I love the mint flavor and scent, it really leaves a nice tingle on the lips as opposed to a stinging one. It's a really great product and I definitely recommend it.
It really works fast in healing my dry lips. I love thisand keep it in my purse everywhere I go!
I feel like this product has so much hype but doesn't really deliver! I like my lips to feel silky and this just doesn't do that for me. But the pomegranate one does! I love that one waaaay more than this one!
I LOVE this lip balm! I have full lips that get really dry really fast in the winter...and i guess all year around too lol! When you first apply this lip balm, it doesn't glide on as easily, but once you start to wear it more, it would become smooth. i love it because when you put it on it doesn't have any gloss like vaseline. its like you have nothing on your lips but your lips are still baby smooth, and this makes it easier to put on lipstick! also, when i used other lip balms before, i put kept applying it every half an hour or so, but when i put burts bees in the morning, my lips will still be smooth half way through the day! I even tried eos lip balm, so trust me, this is the best for really chapped lips!
I wanted to love this product because it was made of natural ingredients, but it just didn't work for me. I found that it sat heavily on my lips with a waxy feeling that I didn't like. I also didn't like the peppermint (I thought it would be more of a sweet honeyed balm instead of a minty balm). After a few uses, the tube could not be used properly; I couldn't get the balm back into the tube so every time I would have to use my finger to push the balm back into its tube, which made it very annoying. This product also didn't help my flaky lips. I wouldn't buy this product again as there are many other better products out there for a cheaper price!!
GOD I love this chapstick. I always have to own 3 or 4 tubes just to have around the house. Ive been using it for like 10 years and I'll never stop. It heals cracked lips, moisturizes, soothes, and just feels tingly everytime I use it. I think I'm addicted
OH MY GOSH! This is probably my favorite beauty product EVER created, total HG status! I love it so much I don't know what I would do without it. I have tried sooo many chapsticks. I tried the infamous "EOS lip balm" and that did nothing. I tried the "Nivea Kiss Of Milk And Honey" and that didn't last long at all. I always seem to go back to my burt's bees in the end. I've tried some of the other chapsticks from this brand but the original will always be my favorite. Some people may not like the more thick slightly waxy texture but I love it. I hate those thin greasy chapsticks that feel like I'm putting water on my lips and wear off after 10 minutes, leaving my lips even drier. This lasts a long time on my lips and leaves them feeling incredibly hydrated. I love to put this on overnight and I wake up with super moisturized lips. It feels really nice and has a cooling sensation on my lips. The scent is a very subtle slightly minty smell. The price is great. My only complaint is how fast I go through this stuff, I honestly have to stock up on it!
This was my favorite lip calm until Eos came along. I loved how it always kept my lips moisturized and I loved the scent. My only complaint was it felt waxy at times but that is common with lip balms for me.
