Product Review: Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut and Pear

As I find myself using every product I can get my hands on – or in this case, my lips on, it begins to dawn on me that all products, are in fact, not created equal. I’m a Burt’s Bees fan. A big one…and for more than a decade now I’ve been using every Burt’s Bees product I can manage to get. But, after using a variety of lip products on my quest for the perfect pout , coming back to this old favourite made me remember why I began this experiment in the first place. After only a few days of regular application, my lips are beginning to dry out again.

What I like about this product: 

  • 100% natural. With an ingredient list that reads with basically all things you can find in the market (sunflower seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, castor seed oil, shea butter, lanolin,pear extract, soybean oil, soybean oil & rosemary leaf extract) it’s hard not to love it.
  • Price. About 4 British Pounds, 4$ or 5€ you can obtain a tube of this stuff.
  • It’s Burt’s Bees!
  • Smells yum and feels good
  • Fits in my jeans pocket

What I don’t like about this product:

  • The more I use, the more I need, the more I need, the more I use and my lips start to dry out :/

Overall Decision:  It saddens me to say, but once this tube is finished, I won’t be replacing it with another of the same kind.

The hunt continues…..

What are your lip product recommendations?

  1. Have you tried taking vitamin E internally. Could be the key…

  2. I use Burts Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm. I like it better than the hydrating balm.

      That’s on my list to try this month! Great to know you like it better. I felt like a traitor being uncertain about the hydrating. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
