Burt's Bees Lip Balm

I just wanted to put up a quick post about my favorite lip balm.  I ran out of it today, and it made me think about how many of these I go through...I think I'm addicted. 

This stuff is amazing.  I wrote about it in my beach bag post, but I would just like to reiterate how fabulous I think this lip balm is.  I've used all types of lip balms/ chapsticks...Blistex, Rosebud Salve (which I still love), Softlips, and Carmex.  But, for some reason I love the texture of the Burt's Bees the best.  I also like that I can feel the pomegrante oil, and I really think that has helped keep my lips protected in both the winter from the harsh cold, and the summer from the strong sun.  Lastly, this lip balm uses all natural ingredients which I prefer and has an SPF of 20.

Which remindssss meeeee, it's SO important to make sure your chapstick or lip balm (whatever, they're the same thing) has SPF in it.  Usually making sure your lips are protected from the sun is the last thought someone has while at the beach ready to get their tan on.  Howeverrrrr, your lips don't tan, duh, so they must be protected from the harsh rays.  So, make sure you have a lip balm wth SPF 15 or higher, I'd always opt for the higher.  

PS: Sorry I haven't updated in a few days, life has been super hectic the past week!


  1. Thanks for this review! I was contemplating on getting this, so this post helped me out a lot!

  2. I like Burt's Bees too. It's thicker than normal chapstick, which I like when I feel like my lips are dry.


  3. I love the consistency of this compared to other chap sticks/ balms, I def agree with you!

  4. Would you like 5 years’ worth of lip plumping for the price of one standard plumping glosssoft lips
