This really is a very good 'secret'. I tend to use it at night before I go to sleep, and most often wake up thereafter with perfectly moisturised, slightly plumper lips.

One lippy off because I find that using this as an overnight treatment, unlike Nuxe Reve de Miel balm, does not guarantee that I won't need to use any more lipbalm throughout the rest of the day.

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

I really, really wanted to like Burt's Bees lip balms, but unfortunately they just do not work on me. I honestly feel as though this is making my lips drier.

A shame, particularly as the tint is very nice- subtle enough to redden your lips totally naturally.

Living in China means I have limited access to good, organic skincare, so I always make sure to stock up when I'm in Europe. I picked this out more or less at random from Whole Foods in London- my brother was tapping his toes impatiently waiting for me, and so I grabbed it and went.

Having used it more or less daily in the 2 months since I've owned it, I'm pleased to …

Excellent product. As a lipbalm snob, I am generally skeptical about faddish products, but this does not disappoint one bit. I got it in the natural mint flavour, and was delighted at how it immediately soothed my winter-ravaged lips and lent a rosy tint and tingling sensation. Hours later, my lips are still moisturised and I don't feel the urge to reapply obsessively. I am already …Read more

Jan/18/2012

I have been an avid user of DuWop products for almost a decade, and remain convinced that the original formulation of Lip Venom (i.e. before they introduced the wee brush) was more potent. Over the years, I've lost patience with glosses as they are invariably too drying for my lips and my impossible-to-tame curls seem to fly to my lips as if they were magnets.

This is one of the …

i have to admit that i fell for the hype; though i usually don't like the concept of unisex. i first got this as a free sample and sprayed it on purely out of curiosity. it grew on me and after resisting for a year and a half, i caved and bought an 100 ml bottle in st tropez.

it opens very sharply, which i don't like, so tend to spritz as soon as i'm out of the shower …

what i love about this product is that it's highly moisturising, but extremely light. i've been using this for about 3 months now, and i've noticed gradual, subtle improvements in my skin. that's taking into account 2 full months of hardcore sun exposure- frolicking in the sun for 6 hrs a day in brasil and west africa. it hydrates my skin perfectly without a single trace of …Read more

this is an excellent product. moisturizing enough for use on its own (though i tend to layer it underneath nuxe's creme fraiche) but very light and absorbent. actually feels like it's doing your skin some good as well. and the scent is delightful and uplifting- j'adore.

the key to making this work: it should be used as an OVERNIGHT TREATMENT. applying a thick layer the last thing i do before passing out every night and i wake up with perfectly plumped, moisturized lips. nothing else gives me that bee-stung fullness.

agree that during the day this isn't the ideal treatment as it's too thick and waxy to be comfortable.
