“An ultra-hydrating 100% natural lip conditioner with rich Kokum, Shea, and Cocoa Butters to offer 4 hours of clinically proven long-lasting moisturisation.”
These are the first Burt’s Bees lip balms that I’ve tried. I heard so many great things before purchasing them, and this post is based from the Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm (the one with the grey lid.) These lip balms are very easy to use, and small to carry around. They apply smoothly and easily and are no fuss products. On top of that, they’re so affordable, natural and easy to find. However, they are obviously not a vegan product.
The scent of the individual lip balms depends on the flavour and scent you choose. Here I have both the Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm, which doesn’t have a particular scent or flavour it’s just like using a plain Shea or Cocoa Butter. The other is Coconut & Pear which smells like a sweet coconut, and kind of like a summer holiday.
The texture is very thin and very smooth on the lips. It’s also very shiny when applied, and the actual lip balm is very hard from the beeswax base. This makes it hard to use when the product is cold and hardens. I like the texture because it’s very easy to apply and just requires the lid to be removed. It’s a very hygienic product. However, because the texture is so thin it doesn’t last very long on the lips. The Ultra Conditioning lip balm says it lasts 4 hours, but I think it lasts less than 1 hour. Especially if you are drinking whilst wearing it. I like that these lip balms don’t make the lips feel more dry than when I first applied. They do help smooth the lips and moisturise them so overtime you don’t have to apply it so much. The first thing to do when you feel you have dry lips is to hydrate.
Overall, these are a good choice as it is very affordable and natural. However, I do prefer other lip balm options that are softer and are vegan which includes Crazy Rumours and Hurraw.
