I've been using this chapstick for YEARS. It's a good product and does well to replenish my lips... especially if I put it on before I go to bed, my lips are much better in the morning.
I love this! It gives my lips a tingly feeling and I think my lips look/feel softer than they were before. Definitely a good product and will be repurchasing
It's great! I love this stuff, but you have to keep reapplying it because it soaks in quickly. I really like the menthol/ minty feel of it. It's very refreshing and satisfying to chapped lips.
I absolutely love the smell of this! Kind of a mix of honey and mint, I find it very refreshing. The major downside for this product is that it really feels like you're applying cold wax to your lips. I doesn't go on smoothly at all. Despite this, I feel my lips are nourrished and I would buy it again.
It's worth mentioning that you can make the same thing very easily at home by melting together equal parts of beeswax and coconut oil, adding whatever is safe to use on skin and will make it taste or smell the way you like, maybe throwing in a piece of lipstick for a hint of colour and pouring the mixture into a pot/lip balm tube (the kind with screw in the middle). That way, you save money that would be better spent on something you can't whip up at home in ten minutes, plus you can avoid the peppermint that proves problematic for so many people.
It was the bomb until they changed the formula. Don't fix what isn't broken!!! I felt moisturized before and it was the only thing close to my HG blue Chapstick, now it makes my lips feel so dry. Boo!!
Disappointing. It feels smooth on application but it tingles and reddens my lips then actually makes my lips dry and peel to be worse than before. I disovered the cause is this balm contains peppermint oil which has been proven to be a skin irritant. The "tingling" you feel is not a "benefit", its your skin trying to tell you the product is aging and damaging! Its seriously crazy to put peppermint in a product targeting sensitive or dry skin conditions but there you go Clorox (the company that makes Burts Bees). Peppermint is so stimulating that it causes the skin to flake to protect itself and rid itself of the annoyance, making people think they need to apply more lip balm - when in reality the balm is the cause of their problem! I laugh at people who swear this is so good that they go through 5 tubes a month - if it were working that well your lips your lips would be in such good condition that you would only need to use up a single tube every month or so.
If you are going through tons of balms and have them all over your house, purse and car, then I encourage you to break the addiction to the brands you have because they aren't working for you. Seek out a selection of more natural, unscented, quiet work-horse lip products till you find one that works for you so well that your lips are in great condition and you hardly need to use it. For the people asking what is better? Well we're all individual but for me its Natio SPF 30 Lip Balm, Blistex SPF 30 Lip Balm, and Avon Glazewear Lip Gloss (wand applicator, very smooth) are just 3 examples. I look for balms without obvious perfume or glitter and they are usually ok. For me almost everything works better than Burts Bees.
I don't love this product simply because I always end up putting a lipgloss or lipstick over it eventually, and it's just too waxy to serve as a good base. But alone, it feels nice and tingly and smells awesome. It gives a good matte look to the lips too, if that's something you like. So, good product, just not perfect for me! I also think it's a bit pricey, I received a 2 pack as a gift but I wouldn't have bought it for myself.
I love Burt's Bees! It is not sticky and you can find it everywhere. It is also not so waxy that it feel gross on your lips and the scent is very nice. It is not too minty and it makes your lips feel super soft! I love it and have one in my kit for my clients. I would highly recommend it and it's not expensive at all!
save that 5$ and just steal this it's so small and discrete no1 will ever know its missing :) too expensive as a lip balm I say go to wal-mart and grab yourself one.
