I spoke about the Burt Bees Lip Balm (mine is in honey) in my August Favourites, since then my lips have been through hell and back and I think it's only fair that I give it more recognition than I already have! During September my lips had a bad reaction to something (not sure what) but it completely dried out my lips and add on top the changing seasons, my lips were dry, red and very sore. It was impossible to wear any type of lipstick, it was really painful!
If it wasn't obvious already, this stuff saved my lips! It rescued my red, dry and sore lips in a matter of days (using it at every opportunity I got!). It feels really light on the lips which is nice because it doesn't make them feel greasy or heavy but it still kept them moisturised, plump and soothed. It sinks into the lips quickly so it's great for during the day or before applying your lipstick. It also smells fantastic and not too overpowering which some scented balms can be.
The only problem I have with this product is that the balm is really hard making it hard to apply across the lips, sometimes it feels like I haven't put any on. But I usually kept my in my college bag so it softens up a bit.
I'm not sure what sets it aside from other lip balms, but it was brilliant at helping my lips recover from that horrible reaction. It's pretty inexpensive at £3.69, it's easy to throw into my bag and just apply throughout the day! I'd really recommend this for anyone who suffers from dry lips.
