I don't know what people are talking about in these bad reviews. This balm is great. I have severely dry lips, and this is a wonderful option to treat extreme dryness. I don't mind he greasiness, because it goes on clear and this ensures that my chapped lips aren't super obvious (no yucky collection of balm on the dried skin/ cracks on my lips). I'll keep buying as long as it is relatively inexpensive.

I don't find any of the Burt's Bees lip balms to be bestew very much moisture on my lips. They all give a temporary fix & then my lips go to feeling a little bit worse than they did before I applied the balm.

I don't see how this is any different from the other Burt's Bees lip balms. Moisturizes decently in the 15 minutes before it wears off. Still looking for something better.
Probably the wouldn't buy again just because it wears off so fast. I am having to apply this 4-5 times a day just to keep my lips feeling halfway normal.

**EDIT** Okay, so after a week of using this product I've changed my mind a little. No, the staying power isn't very good. But this honestly does moisturize my lips better than the other balms that I have.
I tried a JR Watkins balm that was really heavy and didn't wear off quickly. But thats allll it did. My lips still felt chapped and flaky after it wore off.
With this one, there is definitely a noticeable difference. I will keep using!

I'm surprised to see so many bad reviews. This lip balm is the best! Like others have mentioned it is more slippery and oily but I love that. It leaves your lips very glossy and smooth. And it is very moisturizing and healing. I used to only use eos lip balm (those cute little sphere shaped ones) and I like this way better. I actually prefer the oily texture vs a waxy texture like most lip balms have. I have nothing bad to say about this lip balm :)

This lip balm was an odd experience. The ingredients look amazing. When I put it on, I could have imagined this, but my lips immediately looked a slightly more flushed and plump. I also felt a mildly irritated sensation - very mild and spotty, though, it wasn't enough to make me want to remove it, but it did make me wonder if continued use would lead to a sudden bad reaction. So the few days that I used this, I enjoyed putting it on as it slips on almost like oil rather than a lip balm, and it stays wet/moist - but it didn't seem to sink in. It didn't make my lips feel conditioned - they felt tight as they would if unconditioned, but with an oily layer on top. When I rubbed my lips flakes of (presumably dry/dead) skin would slough off of my lips - it was like an exfoliater, even though my lips hadn't seemed flaky before putting it on. But of course, you don't want to sit there with rough/grainy feeling lips, but if you wipe them off, all of the lip balm comes off, as it hasn't sunk in at all. It wasn't great for me as my go-to lip balm due to the oily/unconditioned feel, but I liked the idea of using it as a lip treatment for exfoliation...however that slight irritation I felt around my lips has me worried that I might react to it later and break out. So I am keeping it....and if my lips need exfoliation, then I may use it once in a blue moon, but I don't want to risk regular use.

Update: So...I don't know if this is definitely related, but a couple of days after I stopped using this product, my my lips broke out in a rash? Tiny bumps all over my lips, very rought/dry, especially toward the edges - that lasted for a few days, I used l"yes to" lip balm with vaseline on top several times a day to moisturize, and my lips are close to normal now. Reducing this review to just one lippie.

I'm on my 3rd one of these and hate to use anything else. I've even bought some for friends. This stuff is so nice! Makes your lips really silky and soft. It says it last 4 hours, I don't know about that but it does last way longer than most lip balms. For the last 10 years my lips have been chronically chapped and peeling and since using this they've gotten way better. To me, this particular one is way better than the other Burt's Bees balms. It's almost perfect. If I had to find one CON I'd maybe say the smell is slightly like lotion, not fruity or minty like most. It's not bad and you get used to it- just at first it's odd.

Big thumbs down, had to return it. It made my lips dryer. I got the honey one instead, much better.

this product is kind of too much for me. it leaves my lips feeling too oily even with one swipe on my lips. Sometimes it helps my dry and chapped lips, but sometimes it doesn't. It fluctuates. it also smells clean if you like that:)
