Burt's Bees Lip Balm: Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter

Burt's Bees Lip Balm - Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter - Specially formulated with mango butter, this replenishing balm soothes, moisturizes and protects to reveal smooth, healthy lips.


A gift from my sister, the Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter was the first Burt's Bees lip balm I tried.  I had heard loads about Burt's Bees, but it wasn't available in India.  I was so happy when I got this, I never even used it properly because I didn't want it to get over.  Yup, I am crazy that way! What happened, though, is now I don't have my precious lip balm with me any more.  I dropped it behind this stupid dresser which is so heavy, and I cannot move it.  There is probably a moral to this story, but I am not sure about what it is :P

Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter - Review

The Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter is a pale almost colourless lip balm that has a bit of a mango smell but not a sickly sweet ripe mango smell.  I know most people love minty lip balms, but I am an oddity and HATE mint flavors, and the very slight mango flavor/smell is (was) just perfect for me.   As with most Burt's Bees lip balms, they are the best - see them, grab them, and use them up before you drop it somewhere and some elephant steps on it.....just saying..:-|

Just curious, but do you all lose lip balms quite often?  I do.  I have lost count of how many I have lost.  With this one, at least I know exactly where I dropped it, but most times they just disappear without a trace.  Makes me wonder if there is some larger conspiracy going on - one that involves stolen lip balms and single muti-coloured socks :P :P :P :P
