A new product review for Burt’s Bees Lip Balm…
Let me just start with- I love this lip balm! It glides on smoothly (although I do get the unusual tube that feels a bit “grainy”), tingles gently on your lips, and really moisturizers through a hot summer or a windy, dry winter.
For sensitive types, the product is billed as 95.29% natural (source: burtsbees.com). Here is a run down of the ingredients: Beeswax, coconut oil, sunflower oil, tocopheryl acetate and tocopheryl, lanolin, peppermint oil, comfrey root extract, rosemary extract. As an additional bonus: the tube itself is made of over 50% recycled plastic (so be sure to re-recycle the tube when you finish!).
I first discovered this lip balm about 8 years ago during a road trip stop at Cracker Barrel. For a long time, that was the only place (besides online) to find the Burt’s Bees line. Now, the line is much more accessible and can be found at your local drugstore, Target, and some grocery organic sections; or Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm can be found at Drugstore.com (from $2-$4.99)
The tube is my preference, since the tin’s consistency is not as smooth, a bit messier, and in my opinion, not as sanitary.
Cons: This version does not have color (if you are looking for tint, try their tinted variety) and does not contain SPF. You can buy the Lifeguard’s version that does contain SPF.
