As you might know, I do love trying new beauty products quite a bit. Next to my bed I like to keep a lip balm to apply constantly throughout the day and before bed. Some time ago I received the Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm as a giveaway or competition prize, but it was finally time to put it to the test.
First of all, it's all good that it has a protective seal to avoid people opening and contaminating the product in shops, but it's made of an extension of the tube label and so it's not the easiest to open, plus it leaves uneven packaging residue that diminishes aesthetic appeal for me.
The Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm looks very smooth before applying, when I put it on I discovered that since it is wax, it is very hard but it does apply smoothly to the lips. What I didn't like was the smell, which is probably the lanolin and rosemary combined. Plus because of the peppermint there was an extreme tingling on my lips that wasn't pleasant and lasted for about 10 minutes before finally subsiding.
About the lip conditioning properties? Well it seems like it moisturises the skin on my lips but I can't tell about long term use as I doubt I will continue to use this product because of its scent and tingling sensation. It was quite disappointing as I have tried other Burt's Bees lip balms and really love them.
