Review: Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint

Lately, I have experienced dry lips so I thought of getting a lip balm that comes in handy (any brand will do as long as it moisturizes my dry lips). I happened to visit Sephora and chanced upon Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. It was sold at $8 SGD so I didn't hesitate to pick it up without really minding the different varieties offered. I picked the one with Vitamin E & Peppermint.

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint Product Review

Burt Bees' Promise

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.

Product Review


(Note: Some of the Pros given are based on the company claims.)
  • Smells like peppermint
  • Leaves a tingling sensation after application because of the peppermint oil. The tingling sensation is a bit strong for the first 5 minutes, mild in the next 10 minutes, and almost gone for the next 15 minutes.
  • It doesn't leave any amount of color to your lips.
  • It's light and non-greasy.
  • It's 100% natural.
  • It can be applied before lip gloss or lipstick.
  • Moisturizes the lips after several reapplications.

  • It's not emollient enough. It does not give me the smoothed and soft lips desired.
  • Somehow I feel that the product just sits on top of my lips because my lips still feel dry after a few minutes of application so I keep on reapplying.
  • It doesn't give a smooth application perhaps due to its texture which is slightly hard.

In Conclusion

This is my first ever Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm and I was disappointed. Petroleum jelly fairs better with regards to moisturizing my dry lips (which is what you wanted from a lip balm). This is what I'm currently using.

I don't want to generalized every variety Burt's Bees offers but this Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E & Peppermint does not work for me. Sorry guys.
