Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm


I really love this lip balm. Before I started using it I was using Blistex Medicated. I liked the medicinal feel of the Blistex. However, I was always have to reappy it, and it really didn't make my lips feel healthy. The Burt's Bees lip balm is wonderful. It doesn't have a medicinal feel. Instead, it is soothing, provides the necessary moisture needed, and makes my lips feel healthier. I am in love with this product now. I plan on buying many more to keep around the house so I don't have to use the regular lip balms anymore.


Pros: natural, works great, taste

Cons: none

I admit it. I am a lip balm junkie. I cannot live without one and I use it several times a day. I have tried a ridiculous amount of lip balms and this one might be the best of the lot. It's not greasy, does a great job and I love the tingling sensation! Of course if you hate peppermint, stay away from it!


Pros: The best lip balm I've ever used

Cons: It's relatively pricey

Okay, this is the absolute best lip balm on the market. Bar none. I've literally tried every single brand (from the traditional Chapstick to Carmex to fancy lip balms in tins), and this is the best. It's just the right amount of mintiness, really stays on the lips to keep them moist, and lasts forever. I always have at least two tubes that I switch among my purses. I literally don't go anywhere without it. It only gets four stars for value just because it is pretty expensive, but it's worth it -- I love this product.


Pros: ...easy to use - it's lip balm...

Cons: Kinda pricey, melts in cars - like other lip balms...

We have been pretty much exclusively using Burt's Bees lip balm for a while now. Is more expensive than "Chap Stick", and melts in cars just the same... so be cautious with that. Anyway, whole family likes it and we've spread the word and friends like it also :-) There are different kinds of balm by Burt's Bees - the lifeguard kind is kinda white on your lips. They are all great!


Pros: Natural, smells good, works well

Cons: The flavored lip balms are more questionable, peppermint oil makes it burn a little

I try to use natural products on my body because your skin absorbs so much of what you put onto it. I like that this is a natural product, it smells nice, and it works well. I have the lip balm in the tin right now (see note below), and the peppermint burns a little. I don't remember if that was an issue with the stick version.

NOTE I- Read the ingredients! I looked at a few of the different lip balms, and I personally would only want to buy the plain types. The honey one has "flavor" in it, the pomegranate one has "fragrance" and carmine (which comes from boiling a certain type of insect)- so it is not vegetarian.

NOTE II- It's a much better deal to buy it in the tin rather than in the stick- when I bought mine, it was the same price for twice as much. The ingredients are slightly different in the tin. The tin is also takes a tiny bit more effort to get open than the stick.


Pros: Works like a charm

Cons: Sold out to Clorox

I love Burt's Bee's products all around, but I know this one works well! I also have lip balms in abundance, in the car, 3 in my purse (for variety...gotta have it) and 1 in the bedroom for those luscious lip locks! I find Burt's Bee's Lip Balm is not greasy, it absorbs well and protects your lips for quite a while until you need to re-apply. I love it and use it often!

Although I have found alternative products to use since Burt's Bee's sold out to Clorox I would still recommend it if your lips are in some serious need of natural moisture.


Pros: Goes on smooth, puts up a good barrier between your lips and the elements

Cons: If you get the tin and you leave it in your car, it gets melted and the tin is hard to open

For a good while, I had one in pretty much every bag. And one in my car too. If you leave one in your car, I would recommend the tube though because I've ended up with tins I can't open. Whoops. That's really my fault I guess...

But I digress. My little sister has tried the honey kind but it's a little too sweet for me (and I think the bottom of it gets pretty sugary). But the straight up beeswax is a good option. For every day use (and when skiing), I'm a fan.  It's a little waxier than the Dr. Bronner's lip balm or the Pangea lip balm, so I've been gravitating towards those lately, but I certainly don't complain when I end up with only Burt's available.


Cons: Everything

Most people seem to be under the impression that Burt's Bees is owned by Burt & everything is natural & wonderful. Fact: In 2004, Burt's Bees Roxanne Quimby sold 80% of the company for $173 million dollars. In 2007, it was sold to Clorox for $925 million. Look at the Burt's Bees website (http://bit.ly/glXRUc) and it's made to look like Burt & Roxanne still make the products out in the woods somewhere! Totally unethical & immoral, IMO! (BTW, the ingredients are nothing like they were originally. There is very little beeswax now, with lanolin (an animal product), and canola & other oils taking up the slack.) The company should be boycotted for misleading & false advertising!


Pros: Its amazing!!


Ok my friend had it and i asked to use it and i fell in love! The next time i went to the store i bought it.. i love it i got all the flavors and they all work great!! However the honey one does not smell all that great.. however it still works GREAT!! Now i read on here that someone thinks it didn't go on very easy, uh yeah i dont know what they were useing but that has Never  been a  promblem for me at all, and i am extremly picky trust me!! BUY IT! you will fall in LOVE!!! :)


Pros: heals well

Cons: white stuff and it is too strong

um it was okay, but i think its a little too strong and also it makes my lips peel on the outside, duck duck duck :P

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

How it Works This natural lip balm moisturizes lips with ingredients like ultra-emollient lanolin, coconut oil and sunflower oil, and seals in hydration with beeswax. You can use it on healthy lips for a little peppermint tingle. Take your pick of an old-fashioned yellow tin or a recycled plastic tube. No wonder it is our most popular product.
