Today’s instalment sees Burts Bees Tinted Balm in Hibiscus, another choice from You Beauty Box, I have tried a couple of products from Burts Bees but not their lip balm.
Burts Bees is a brand I am sure you are aware of, you can buy their lip balms as well as many of their other products on the high street. My local Waitrose stocks them but for some reason I have always overlooked them, I have no idea why.
The ingredients for this lip balm are: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Olus (Vegetable Oil, Huile Vegetale), Cera Alba (Beeswax, Cire D’abeille), Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Candelilla Cera (Euphorbia Cerifera Wax, Cire De Candelilla), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Aroma (Flavor)*, Lanolin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Wax, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower Wax, Ammonium Glycyrrhizinate, Tocopherol, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Canola Oil (Huile De Colza). May Contain: Alumina, Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Ci 75470 (Carmine), Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides). *Natural Flavor.
The reason I chose this as one of my options is because Burts Bees don’t use mineral oil in their products. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to find a lip balm that isn’t mineral oil based AND affordable. That’s where I think Burts Bees fills that gap. I really like this balm, not only is it hydrating and comfortable to wear, I really love the gentle colour. You can build the colour by using a bit more if you want to, in the below picture I did two swipes to get that colour. It really enhances my natural lip colour, being so pale I like to wear colour on my lips to make me look more human!
This balm passes my test, and if you read my Decleor review you will know exactly how particular I am when it comes to lip balm. I find so many too heavy and greasy, I didn’t feel that while using Burts Bees. It’s comfortable to wear and more importantly it conditions without stickiness and grease. A big thumbs up from me!
Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balms are available from Boots, Waitrose, Amazon and FeelUnique, the RRP is £5.99.
