Burts Bee's Beeswax Lip Balm
I brought this off www.Feelunique.com for £3.00. They offer free delivery on all of their goods.
0.3 oz metal tin, with a, vintage, authentic, sort of "grandmas' jam" kind of label on top, with the dark yellow back ground, red writing and the lovely cartoon bee who helps give up beeswaxy loveliness!
This lip balm claims to be 100% natural, which isn't surprising, it's beeswax. This is backed up by the ingredients on the tin. Au naturale indeed.
I have been into boots alot recently, and on my way through, I always meander towards the Burts Bees collection area for a quick nose. Well, one day, whilst bored, and meant to be working, I decided that I would have a loof on Feel Unique.
When i used it, i first felt like i wasn't putting any balm on, as I have come to expect with lip balms, that they be greasy shiny thick and sticky. After scratching my head and applying more, I realised that I had infact moistuised my lips, but the balm and soaked in nicely, leaving them looking
nice and healthy and most importantly lovely and soft, without the greasy shiny residue as with other more synthetic lip balms.It had the classic light yellow/cream colour and smooth, yet not greasy texture. when applying, I got a hint of mint, which is included on the ingredients. To be honest, I quite liked the fact that the mint was there, and surprised me on application. It had a nice, fresh, clean smell to it, and would certainly aid in clearing any blocked noses during those winter months!
I'm not going to lie, I am really not a fan of the price, £3 for a tiny lip balm, hence why I brought something small, it's no loss if it isn't great. I read a few reviews about this Brand of product and decided to give it a go myself. It doesnt break the bank if you fancy giving yourself a little treat, but I wouldn't buy any of the larger product in the collection. As it is though, I don't loose any sleep at night over the price (unlike some purchases) as it's a nice little product
*Does it actually work?*
Well what can I say? I certainly provided my lips with moisture, and it lasted for a decent amount of time. However, because it wasn't as slippery as other balms i found it hard to keep redistributing by putting my lips together(make sense?)Maybe it is just one of my habits with balm, but I didn't like the fact that I couldn't do it with this. But don't take that as a definate negative, it just depends on what you are used to.
It is a good quality product, I won't argue that, and provides the protection vital to fend off chapped lips in the winter.
It is a nice little lip balm, compact size, and the lid remains secure when not in use, but is also easily removed when needed. Unlike other balms on the market, this has a very subtle, clean and natural feel to it. Some balms seem a little bit too plastic and synthetic to me, this is not the case with this balm. It feels lovely and clean and refreshing. Overall, I would say this is a nice pick me up the long dark winter days.
I give it 4 stars. Sadly, it loses one star because of the price.
Summary: Nice little treat that won't break the piggy bank!
