Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Review, Price, Details

No matter what the season is, a good lip balm is every girl’s skincare staple. Agree?

When it comes to lip balms, I am a bit choosy! My lips are dry, requires lip balm 24*7 and they are sensitive to every kind of tinted lip balms. I have been happily using The Body shop Vitamin E lip balm which has helped a LOT to heal my lips and bring them back into the healthy state! But before buying TBS one, I got these Burt’s Bees ones from a friend who was coming back from the US! Remember my US haul which I blogged HERE?

So after couple of months usage, I am ready to share my experience using this lip balm. Without wasting any more time, let’s move on to the review!

What The Brand Says…

The original. The best. And still your favorite. Our must-have balms have been playing in purses and pockets since 1991. Beeswax conditions skin, while antioxidant Vitamin E moisturizes. A final hint of Peppermint Oil provides that one-of-a-kind refreshing tingle. The result? Smooth, supple lips everyone will be buzzing about. 


Price: I paid around USD 7 for a pack of two. They are available online as well.

   

What I Say…

Packaging:

It comes in a typical stick form. The base needs to be twisted in order to bring the balm stick out! I loved the bright red-yellow tube and the colorful outer cardboard packaging!

Texture:

It is a colorless clear balm. The texture is really interesting! It is matte! After application, it does not provide any shine or glossiness to the lips. So no one can detect that you are actually wearing a lip balm. But at the same time it provides required hydration to the lips and keep them supple. Because of the matte texture, it is very suitable to wear underneath lipsticks, as it does not alter the lipstick texture!

Smell:

It smells like peppermint which I love! Whenever I apply it, I feel a strong urge of licking my lips! I have done that couple of times accidentally and it tastes sweet! Also it imparts a cooling sensation to the lips which settles down after 2-3 minutes.

Staying Power:

Since it is matte, it does not come off easily. However, I definitely feel the need of a touch up after a heavy meal.

Efficiency:

It is my absolute favorite day time lip balm to wear under my lipsticks! Even though I wipe off excess balm, if I need my matte lipsticks to look completely matte. But still I like the fact that, it keeps the original formulation of the lipsticks unchanged!

Being a matte lip balm, the moisturizing property is not heavy duty. So I still use my much loved TBS Vitamin E lip balm during bed time as overnight treatment. But I prefer this Burt’s Bees one during day time, especially when I wear lipcolor!

So, my current lip care routine is: Burt’s Bees during day to prep my lips before lipcolor and TBS Vitamin E at night as overnight healing treatment ! I cannot comment on which balm I love more, as they serve different purposes. But I love how healthy and nourished my lips are currently, because of this duo!

Quick Checkpoints:

Thumbs Up:
  • Unique matte texture which is best to wear underneath lipsticks
  • Refreshing peppermint smell
  • Keeps lips hydrated and soft for considerably good amount of time
  • Colorful packaging
  • Does not irritate my sensitive lips
  • Available online
Thumbs Down:
  • Not heavily moisturizing because of matte texture. So it might not be liked by people with extremely dry lips.
Final Word:

Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balms are cult classic and must get items if you are planning to shop beauty products from the US! Good thing is, now they are available in India online and at Sephora stores. I cannot say how good this balm is to heal troubled lips, as my lips were in pretty good condition when I started using it (all thanks to the TBS balm)! But I love the matte formula and love how well it preps my lips for better lip color application! Highly recommended!!

Rating: 4.5/5
