Burt's Bees ~ Lip Shimmer ~ Nutmeg
I am a frequent visitor to Martin Lewis's Money Saving Expert website and while on the site, I always visit the forums, where there is usually a bargain to be had.
This one particular day someone was giving away a Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer, where all you had to pay was the postage and packing, and as a firm fan of Burt's Bees products I couldn't let the opportunity pass to try this product out.
All of Burt's Bees products are based on natural ingredients and also the packaging is always made from recycled materials and can then be recycled after use. They claim to be 100% natural and their products are never tested on animals.
When my Lip Shimmer arrived I have to admit that I was a little surprised at the size, only 2.6g, very small, as I do often use their Lip Balm and was expecting it to be the same size, however this was a 'freebie' so I can't complain. This is what Burt's Bees themselves say about this item:-
"How it Works
A kiss of colour and pearlised shine add a hint of glamour to our world famous lip balm. Condition, smooth & highlight your lips with our wonderful selection of seven shimmering shades. Luminescent earth pigments add a hint of colour to our natural beeswax lip balm to give your lips the lift they need. Nourish, moisturise and soothe your lips with natural ingredients like vitamin E and coconut and sunflower oils. It's time to pucker up with shimmery colour".
When applied to my lips it felt surprisingly light and not at all sticky, it had a strange minty cooling effect that actually made the lips tingle for a while and took a while to wear off but it wasn't unpleasant.
The colour was the shade of Nutmeg which being of dark hair and honey coloured complexion actually suited me very well, so I was very pleased with that. It gives the lips an impression of being luminescent, giving a natural sheen to the lips.
Once the lip shimmer has worn off it leaves the lips feeling very soft, smooth and well moisturised.
This product contains Sunflower oil, castor oil, beeswax, candelila wax, lanolin, cocoa seed butter, tocopheryl acetate and tocopherol (vitamin E), peppermint oil, carnauba wax and rosemary leaf oil.
This retails direct from the Burt's Bees website @ www.burtsbees.com for the price of £5.99 for 2.6g, which is a little pricier than most lip shimmers for its size, but as I received it for the price of the post and packing only I really can't complain. It is also being sold on Amazon at the moment for £5.87, not much of a saving though.
I would probably not buy this product again given the price of it compared to others on the market and also given that it does no more than those said products. It is a pleasant lip balm that leaves your lips feeling nice and soft, but nothing special !

Thank you for reading.
Summary: A very nice product, that's a little on the expensive side.
