I've already REPURCHASED this several times. I have dry lips year round and it definitely lives up to Blistex lip balms. (NOTE that this beeswax balm, I found far more effective, hydrating and nourishing than other Burt's Bees balms.) It has a very refreshing mint scent and most importantly I can feel its moisturizing effect for a long time. I can't say that for most balms I've tried, even Carmex I've found to only be effective for about ten minutes...

I am a huge Chapstick junkie, I have maybe 10 at any given time and this is consistently the one I can't live without and is always with me. The consistency is great, not thin and "watery" or sticky like some other chapsticks, goes on smooth and has a nice waxy feel and the peppermint tingle feels nice and helps to freshen up breath. Keeps my lips smooth and soft, especially when applied before bed and worn all night. The packaging is garbage though. The little screw thing (no idea what to even call that) that moves the Chapstick up ALWAYS stops functioning properly towards the end and it drives me mad.

Tried out this lip balm years ago after hearing so many great comments about it and was very disappointed. My lips are naturally quite dry, I've tried pretty much all the drugstore and department store lip balms (the ones costing $20-30 each and barely last a month). Nothing beats Carmex!

i have been using this burt's bees lip balm for seven years. seven. years. no joke. i go through serious withdrawal symptoms when i can't find it in my handbag.

this product is really great because it does everything a lip balm should do, end of story: hydrates, soothes, softens, etc. etc. etc.

it applies really easily and it contains peppermint oil so it gives you this lovely menthol tingle after putting it on. when i get sick, i get really dry skin about my lips and around my nose from constantly blowing it, but i dab a tiny bit of burt's bees lip balm above my lips and below my nostrils and problem solved (though you will look like an idiot if you do it in public as i have recently discovered).

this product is fantastic, but i think that if you suffer from dry lips, you will find yourself reapplying a little too often and it might even be painful! a friend of mine with dry lips bought this lip balm and said it actually freaked her out because the menthol tingle was more like a burn. if you're worried about that, try one of the other less minty flavours, like the pomegranate one.

nonetheless, this is my absolute holy grail of all lip balms of all time and i will probably keep using it until i am a hundred years old.

pros:
- soothes, nourishes, hyrdrates, moisturises, just is VERY gOOD
- eco-friendly
- menthol tingle is cooling and super lovely (as long as you aren't prone to sensitive or dry lips)

cons:
- the cooling sensation could turn into a burning feeling, depending on your skin and lips
- could probably be a little more moisturising
- pretty expensive considering how much product you get! but i kind of think it's worth it

Lovely on the lips and keep them in tip top shape. Hydrating and repairs chapped lips quick! Definite repurchase.

A few years ago I used Burt's Bees lip balms like crazy, but later I realized that they really aren't that great. The mint dries my lips out, and overall it is not that moisturizing at all. Smells great, but it's just too minty and drying for me. Not what I want in a lip balm.

I see why people like it but it's not for me. Minty balms and I do not mix. they irritate the crap out of my face. The texture is perfect, but pomegranate is where it's at.

Cant go wrong with this lip balm. It leaves my lips soft, plumped and moisterised for hours. Its got a waxy feel but once you apply it on your lips it glides on very smoothly. Its so easy to overapply this, i just love the soft feeling that it leaves!

I like that this isn't slippery, soft, or greasy like other lip balms. It's more of a hard, waxy texture and I can swipe it 3-4 times over my lips and it doesn't feel sticky or overly-applied. I love the peppermint and the tingle. Bonus points for being natural and petroleum free. I am a lip balm hoarder so I rotate through my stash a lot, but this is definitely one i reach for often.

This is a Holy Grail product. I have spent years looking for a lip balm that smoothes, provides intense moisture and most of all leaves no residue or gloss on the lips.

I love the fast absorbency of this balm as it completely absorbs in 1 minute and leaves no shine or glossy residue that your hair will get stuck in, it stays completely matte - perfect for under lipstick

This lip balm is also long lasting, I only have to apply twice in one day and it completely smoothes them out leaving them super soft and kissable! The peppermint also feels amazing and fills your lips with natural colour.

This is the perfect lip balm, I will never think of using anything else again!
