Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm Review

I like to give products a thorough testing before I review them on the blog. This lip balm actually came with a gift set I bought myself (ahem) on Christmas Eve and I haven't put it down since. So let's get down to the nitty gritty shall we?

This is what the Burt's Bees website has to say about their Replenishing lip balm with Pomegranate Oil.

"This replenishing and hydrating natural lip balm is infused with the antioxidant goodness of pomegranate oil. It replenishes moisture to reveal smooth, healthy lips, while it coats them with a hint of color for an even-toned appearance."

100% natural, this lip balm does exactly what it says on the tin. As soon as I applied the product my lips felt extremely nourished, hydrated and soft. Burt has nailed the right mix between a waxy and balmy consistency, with the product leaving a luxurious, light feeling on my lips whenever I apply it. There is no danger of this dragging across your lips or chunks of balm coming off which you have to then rub in with your finger. Just swipe and go; perfect.

There are various "flavours" within the Burt's Bees range and I now understand why people collect lip balms; they all look delicious. After application you can taste the pomegranate alongside the standard Burt's Bees scent; slightly medical but not overpowering and both flavours work well together.  As it says in the blurb you do get a slight colour pay off on your lips, and you're left with a nice shine, creating a perfect lip option if I was wearing a smoky eye. I have the mother of all colds just now so sorry for no action shots of the product on my lips.

With weather like this my lips have been needing all the protection they can get.
The lasting time of this balm is what I really admire, two hours after application I can still feel the balm nourishing my lips. With this freezing weather we have been getting this has been my go to lip balm, even knocking of my all-time favourite Cherry Chapstick from the top spot.

Dare I say this, but Burt's Bee has created probably one of the best lip balms on the market just now. I can find no fault with this product and would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a good quality lip balm. It's a 10/10 from me.

Also check out the Burt's Bees Website as they have a 3 for 2 deal on lip balms, Hurrah!
