When I received an email a little while ago, asking if I’d like to try Burt’s Bees products I thought, why not? It’s a brand I have heard of but have never actually tried. I was sent two lip care products to try out: the Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter and the Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Açaí Berry.
I noticed on the packaging that they are: 100% natural. Now, I don’t profess to be a stickler for these sorts of things. I’m not. But I do like a brand that is.
For the past two weeks I have been using the Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter. I always have some sort of lip care product in my bag but I have never really found one that works. Or maybe I just haven’t used one as regularly as I should. Whichever it is, I have been using this lip balm once or twice a day and have realised that my lips are in much better condition. So much so that I’ve even been putting coloured lipstick on. That might sound like a strange thing to say but I usually only use a very pale MAC lipstick (I think it is called Angel) which doesn’t really do much except make my lips look a little shiny. But in the last week I have been putting on a darker Avon lipstick (more on that next week) and my lips are in good enough condition for the lipstick not to look cracked straight away.
The smell of the lip balm was the first thing I noticed. It is such a fruity smell without being too sickly sweet or artificial, which I suppose is due to it being, 100% natural.
I usually use a balm in a pot but the stick is much easier to use and less messy – particularly in the cold weather when you normally have gloves on too!
It’s price – of £3.69 – is good for those on a budget (like myself!).
If you’re looking for a new lip care product, look no further!
Next week’s beauty review will be Avon’s Ultra Colour Rich Moisture Seduction Lipstick.
