Pros: great ingredients, not sticky
Cons: creases, makes lips white, matte and dry on lips, tough texture

Hello everyone,

I heard a lot about the brand having read tons of reviews about Burt's Bees lemon butter cuticle cream, so I was really happy to find their Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm set.

Weight: 4.25 g

I’ve been using the lip balm since last fall and now can fully estimate the product.

Properties. The light yellow tube comes with a thick consistency, that’s why the lip balm goes a long way. It smells like peppermint.

My impressions. The lip balm is incredibly thick and it is the same on my lips. I think it happens because of the beeswax, which is tough and hard to spread out. In addition, it makes my lips matte and pale. If you overdo it, it leaves white streaks.

Peppermint makes my lips somewhat cold and I don’t feel any moisture. When I go outside, it seems like my lips are utterly dry, but then I remember that I wear a lip balm. So I rub my lips together and feel them very tight under the lip balm.

The product on my lips:

As far as I understand the beeswax prevents moisture from evaporating off my lips. The feel is not at all pleasant, because my skin feels sealed. Therefore I can’t use it outside when it’s cold, because the beeswax sets even more and I’m not sure if it makes any good to my lips Sad

In summer I can use it outside easily, as my hair doesn’t get stuck to the lip balm. Additionally, it makes my lips just a little whiter, which I love. The product is perfect for every season when you’re at home. My lips look great after using.

The list of ingredients is simply perfect:

cera alba (beeswax, cire d'abeille), cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, lanolin, tocopherol, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil (huile de colza), limonene

All in all, I’m not sure how to treat this product, because it does work, though in warm weather, but the wear is not something I have expected. I always thought that a lip balm should be soft, gentle, odorous and nourishing, but these adjectives do not suit the description of Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm actually.

I’ve decided to give a 3+ to the product.
