The smell is reeeeeally strong and it feels like your smudging real honey on your lips (without the stickiness), and the smell lasts very long. For the fan of honey, I guess this is perfect, but I'll stick to some other variants of their lip balm.

I buy Burts bees because am against animal testing and also veggie. I just bought this and it's got carmine in it. That's crushed beetles between you and me.
Not such an ethical, animal friendly company after all. I shall avoid in future.

(Edit, sorry this review was meant for the pomegranate lip balm!)

Burt's Bees Lip Balms are the best. I put this on before bed at night in the summer (in the winter I use aquaphor or vaseline since they're heavier). This balm is lightweight enough to wear under a lipstick. Some of my favorite lipsticks are too matte for my taste, and I wish they had more shine and were creamier. So I swipe on my Burt's Bees Lip Balm, and then apply my favorite lipstick on top. Voila, instant sheen and dimension! Amazing that such a lightweight balm can give a lipstick the extra "oomph", instead of using a goopy uncomfortable lipgloss over it.

I have gone through tons of chapstick in my life and I never liked any of them. I purchased this on a whim and immediately bought 1 more. I keep one on my night stand to apply at night and one on me in my pocket or purse. It goes on smooth and has a great light honey smell. I have told everyone that I know about how this helped me with my dry cracked peeling lips and will continue to recommend this.

Love this stuff, always. It's my go-to lip balm, and just about any flavor of it, too. This is what I use when my lips are dry and chafing from days of drying lipstick formulas. I use it as a lip primer or just slather it on before bed.

This stuff is terrible. The formula is hard and crumbles easily. It also dries out my lips. The scent is weird too.

I hate the smell of this. Formula also not the best out of the other flavours.

After trying out a few more high-end expensive lip moisturisers this is the one that's been most effective. Leaves lips soft and plump - used both morning and night. Great in other 'flavours' too, but the honey one I've found to be the most hydrating. Great for general every day use.

This is my overall favorite lip balm. I've been using it for the last year and have repurchased quite a few times (not because I run out, but because I keep forgetting it at home!). This is a very thick and very waxy lip balm. It's not a slippy, soft feeling balm, like they're other balms (the vanilla is super slippery and I don't thinks it's very moisturizing). The smell on this is quite intense, very off-putting and I vowed I would never use it after that first application but it worked so well I just kept using it and ultimately don't care how it smells. This balm doesn't take care of super chapped lips immediately. I find it's more of a "keep lips healthy" over a "my lips are falling off save them right now" balm. I'll use other things to get my lips in good condition and then use this to protect them for the severe cold and wind. It stays on the lips for a long time (at least 2 hours if not eating and drinking). The smell does not dissipate during this time, so if you don't like strong smells, you won't like this particular formula. As I said, I prefer this to all other Burt's bees flavors and will be so incredibly sad if they ever discontinue.
