Burts Bees Honey Lip Balm Review

When you think of natural skin care, one of the first brands that comes to mind is Burts Bees. They are a well known brand with a good reputation. Their products are free from Parabens, Sulphates, Phthalates or Petrochemicals and ingredients are at least 99% natural. 

From Naturisimo 'Burt's Bees creates Earth-friendly natural products carefully crafted from time-tested, proven recipes formulated with effective natural ingredients.'

I purchased the Burts Bees Honey Lip balm from Naturisimo for £3.50. I think the price is very reasonable as you would spend this on a lip balm from the high street without thinking twice. The packaging is the same as all their other orangey-yellow items. I like the understated packaging as its doesn't try to glamourise natural and organic products as it can make the products feel gimmicky.  
This product is 100% natural and states that it moisturises and nourishes the lips in a gentle way. It is filled with butters and oils which will condition and soothe your lips. Examples are Beeswax, Sunflower oil, Coconut oil and Honey.

What did I think?
The first thing I like about this lip balm is that it is smells very strongly of Honey. It fills the air with the sweet scent which I find very pleasant. The balm glides smoothly over my lips and certainly makes them feel soft and  conditioned. My only negative thought is that I find myself having to re-apply the product more often than other lip balms I use. But I have found that the lip balm has lasted me ages. I bought the lip balm in December and I am only just finishing it now. I have tried their pomegranate and original lip balms too, which I liked but this one has been my favourite. I love the smell of the Honey the most! 
Overall I would recommend this product to everybody. Their line of products are accessible and affordable to all. Both women and men could use the majority of the products and they have ranges for baby care too. I will be reviewing another one of their products that I have tried soon and can't wait to try some of their other items such as the moisturisers and lip glosses!

My overall rating for Burts Bees Honey Lip Balm: 8/10


  1. Great review, thank you!

  2. Burts Bees pomegranate lip balm would have to be one of my favourite lip balms ever.
    Great review :)

  3. I love lip balm! But I haven't tried Burt's Bees yet.

    Followed you dear! :D
