Chapped lips are a pain in the arse aren’t they? My lips are ALWAYS chapped and it’s so annoying, especially when they begin to peel, which hurts like hell and they look so sore and unattractive. I have tried numerous lip balms, butters and lip scrubs over the years and nothing has worked for me in the long run, my chapped lips always come back so I needed something that would seriously sort my lips out. After one of my lovely followers recommended I try the Beeswax Lip Balm from Burt’s Bees – I went ahead and bought myself the 8.5g tin version of the Beeswax Lip Balm tube as it looked super cute and I just loved the little tin.
What is it?

First of all, when I ordered this online, I thought the tin would be quite big but when it arrived I was shocked at how small the tin was. It was tiny! There is a 4.5g tube/stick version of this lip balm which is the same price as the 8.5g tin so you do get more for your money, woo-hoo… plus you get a pretty little tin. It is non-greasy balm which is heat resistant and doesn’t melt, run or slide all over your face throughout the day. It deeply hydrates the lips and it smells minty fresh, leaving a slight tingling on the lips after applying. It also seems to be waterproof too and after drinking and eating the balm stayed put and didn’t slide off like other lip balms do.
I disliked how it takes a lot of elbow grease and finger rubbing to get even the tiniest amount of balm on the lips. You need to rub the balm about ten times with your finger to get a fair amount. This annoyed the hell out of me so I ended up using a little lip brush to make things easier and more hygienic plus it kept my fingers clean. It is more hygenic to use a lip brush to avoid contamination to the balm which will make your lips a million time worse so I do recommend using a lip brush for the tin.
It did heal my chapped lips instantly and I was happy that I could wear my matte lipsticks without my lips looking cracked and flaky. It is probably the best balm I have tried for my lips and it really does work. I no longer have sore, chapped lips after using this so I do recommend it and I would buy it again, definitely.
