It’s the size of a coin, but it stings like a minty bee. Honestly, I didn’t think much of Burt’s Beeswax Lip Balm when I first spotted the little tin. Especially considering its price category, I didn’t expect wonders. But ever since purchase, it has not left my bag, coat and other hiding places for cute pocket size products.
Another super-duper-organic-hipster-gluten-free-balm is what I assumed upon investment. But Burt’s Bees has been around since 1984, way before the current organic craze. What started off as Burt’s little experiment with bees wax turned into a head-to-toe care line, based on natural ingredients. And when I say Burt, I mean an actual beekeeper with a grey fuzzy beard, in denim overalls and a fisherman hat. In other words, something to buzz about.
The lip balm is completely clear and gives a matte finish, making it a great base to use under lipsticks (or tinted lips!). Within seconds after application you will feel a tingling sensation, due to its peppermint oil. But don’t let the plain matteness fool you; its moisturizing power is beyond belief, making it ideal for chapped lips.
