Beauty review || Burt's Bees lip balms

So I'm not a beauty blogger at all, I have reviewed a few pieces in the past when it's something I love a lot I feel inclined to share that love. Aw. I'm pretty sure I've included this Burt's Bees mango lip balm in a post before... but I still love them so will share them again 'cos I'm so freaking lovely.

These lip balms come in different types - at the moment I have the mango one and the ultra moisturizing one (this is why I'm not a beauty blogger I can't even name them properly) but I've also tried the weird minty one. The mango one I always buy it's my fave, I think I only bought the minty one 'cos they're almost the same colour! They were on offer the other week and I'd just run out of the minty weird one so I bought the mango one and the ultra moisturizing one, otherwise they're so expensive. But still something I buy every time I need new balm.

The mango one is pretty standard, mango smelling lip balm. I find a lot of lip balms actually dry out my lips, or feel too sticky and uncomfortable. Don't even get me started on Vaseline. These really don't and yes they're more expensive but oh my stars so niiiiice. The ultra-moisturizing one is weird. Instead of swiping my lips a few times I just use this once, and even then sometimes it feels a little much. I only use this one when I haven't for a while and if my lips are feeling ultra dry. The mango one comes with my everywhere.

I used to try out loads of lip balms, as teenage girls do, but I think when you find something that really works at what it does you hold onto it. I wouldn't mind a cola flavour Burt's Bees lip balm though.


  1. My favourite is the Beeswax (the minty one). Didn't like the mango one. It's the best lip balm i've tried and always buy it.

  3. A BEAUTY REVIEW. Are my eye deceiving me?
    I love love love Burts Bees! I had a really yummy one, (can't remember which one, but I do remember it was yummy smelling) anyway, I accidentally dropped it in my cereal one sad, lonely morning. Bye bye delicious, moisturised smelling lips :(

  6. I've tried those and even though they smell yummy they're not so good for my lips :(
