This product really leaves the lips feeling smooth. There is a mild 'tingling' sensation when you first apply to the lips. I've tried the Burt's Bees lipcolors and found them to work just as well. The main difference in the two products is the hint of color. I think they are the ideal solution for someone wanting to wear a lipbalm along with their lipstick...This just cuts down on the application steps.
The only problem I have with Burt's products is the smell...It really takes some getting used to...
I love it. Use it every night before going to bed. Works better for me than anything else I have ever tried. Used daily I never get chapped lips anymore, even in the winter. I panic if I can't find it!
I think this is good alternative for people who don't like the greasy/slimy texture of petrolatum. It just kind of goes on dry and waxy (hence the beeswax) but not at all oily and shiny.But does it work? For me, not really. It seems to dry my lips out more, but that's what usually happens with minty ingredients for me. So I think it's nice, but not for me. continued >>
I like it. It looks white but it leaves my lips more colored and it makes them look pretty. I have extremely chapped lips, summer and winter, and I like this on my lips to keep it moisturized but once it's off my lips, my lips start cracking again. I would buy this again though.
Edit: It is okay. Doesn't do much. continued >>
I really really wanted to like this lip balm... I'd heard such great things about it, and I wanted to find a balm using natural products. But it just wasn't all that great. It wasn't a bad balm at all - just not as good as the hype, I suppose. It did have a great smell, and a nice tingly feeling when first applied, but I felt my lips were drier soon after I'd applied it than they were before. It's also expensive to buy in the UK as hardly anywhere stocks it, and you have to buy it over the internet. I wouldn't purchase it again.
I LOVE IT!!!!!!! It makes my lips super soft, and I love the minty scent.
I have bought this product over 10 times in the past year. My mother thinks I "eat it up". Haha! I've never really liked to use balms before, but after using Beeswax Lip Balm, I can't imagine being without it. I love this balm so much, I use it until there is competely nothing left in the tube. It's like my soul mate of cosmetics. I can't imagine being without it. (Dramatic much?) The reason why I keep on buying this lipbalm is because of the peppermint oil in it. I absolutely love mint! I think that might be the only reason why I buy it. :/
I love the mint and the tingling lips. The beeswax texture is nice and stops it wearing off too quickly.
This is my HG (Holy Grail) of lipbalms. My lips used to crack and bleed. But no longer. The lipbalm does on nicely with a sort of wazy smoothness and has a minty tinglingly feel to it for the first couple minutes. That soon fades, but the smell remains. It also tastes like mint, but more muted than the smell. It also works well as sort of a base for lipglosses.
I found nothing beneficial about this lousy product.
The wax is too thick to be moisturizing - if it's supposed to lock in moisture by creating a barrier, it only succeeded in drying me out.
I often get dry lips and I am a compulsive peeler so this does squat for me.
I think they should have just called it Bees Wax. Period. The words "lip balm" imply that it can provide a remedy for the lips. It doesn't.
