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

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

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 with Vitamin E & Peppermint.


COMPANY CLAIM

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.

INGREDIENTS

beeswax | coconut oil | sunflower seed oil | peppermint oil | lanolin | tocopherol | rosemary leaf extract | soybean oil | canola oil | limonene

WHAT I THOUGHT

Pros 

(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 on 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.
  • Its 100% natural.
  • It can be applied before lip gloss or lipstick.
  • Moisturizes the lips after several reapplications.

Cons
  • Its 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 feels 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.

CONCLUSIONS

This is my first ever Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm and I was disappointed. I really feel that the petroleum jelly fairs better than this product with regards to moisturizing my dry lips (which is what you really wanted from a lip balm). 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.

How about you? What's your Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm experience? Let me know.
