Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm

I’m always thrilled when I find a product that does pretty much exactly what it says it’ll do. Burt Bee’s Tinted Lip Balm is one of the rare products that falls into that category. (And no, I’m not just saying that because I received this product for free from a member of the Burt’s Bees street team.)

Burt Bee’s says that this product delivers “a whole lot of conditioning” and I completely agree. I can apply this balm and two, even three hours later, my lips still feel soft, hydrated and very happy. According to Burt’s Bees, this balm delivers all that moisture thanks to its inclusion of shea butter and botanical waxes.

Unfortunately the colour provided by this product doesn’t last two-to-three hours but then Burt’s Bees doesn’t make any claims about that. Instead, it says that this balm “adds a hint of natural colour” and again, I agree.

This product is available in nine “sheer, wearable every day shades,” varying from the brownish Caramel Daisy to the purpley Sweet Violet. The colour I received, Blush Orchid, is one of the newer shades and is a “naturally flattering” shade on me. It added a visible, but still sheer, pink tint to my lips that looks great (and feels even better).

There’s nothing fancy about the tube this balm comes in (though it’s packaged nicely in a larger, cardboard container) but it does the job. While the price, about $8 is a bit more than I like to spend on lip balm given my tendency to lose them, it is a amount given that this a high quality product that does “take your lips to lovely in one pretty swipe.”

Would I buy this product: This one is an easy, “Yes!”

Should you buy this product: Again, another easy, "Yes!"
