Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

Been combating dry hair, dry skin and dry lips for as long as I can remember. Thankfully, one of them is easier to handle than the other 2. I've come across many lip balms and Burt's Bees popped up as one of the recommended ones.

If it's not already obvious enough, this lip balm contains beeswax. Glad I'm not allergic to it!

Just like all the other lip balms, if you turn it up too much, it won't go back down anymore. However, this one is hard & waxy so pushing it back won't squish it. The cap is really secure but I often have difficulty removing it, especially when my hands are covered in skincare.

It's minty cool when applied on lips, doesn't slide easily on lips (good to be applied under lipsticks) & is slightly sticky. Although it appears to be colourless, it has a tendency to make me look pale and sickly. Every time I wear this out, someone comments that I look pale/sick/my lips look purplish. Not flattering... It's also not very moisturizing, just leaves a waxy layer on my lips.

Ingredients : Beeswax, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, belianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, lanolin, tocopherol, rasmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, glycine soja (soybean oil), canola oil.
Size : 0.15 oz / 4.25 g

Pros : Minty cool feeling, secure cap, smells minty, doesn't cause lipstick to slide
Cons : Waxy, not moisturizing enough, makes me look pale/sickly

My conclusion : Not repurchasing... Just trying to finish this tube (it's beside my computer so I'll see it and remember to use it).

** Product was a gift. However, this has not affected my thoughts on the product in any way.


  1. ahhh.. i've been eyeing this for a long time. i guess now i can take this off my list. im currently loving the maybelline babylips. smells so good. ehhehe..

  2. Aw, that sucks. I'm not a huge fan of the mint version as well, but I do love the one with the pomegrante oil (red cap) :)
