Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm (in a tin) - The original. The best. And still your favorite. Our must-have balms have been playing in purses and pockets since 1991. Beeswax conditions skin, while antioxidant Vitamin E moisturizes, seals in hydration with Beeswax, and refreshes with Peppermint Oil.
Since I have a perpetual problem with dry lips, I am always stocking up on lip balms and butters of all kinds and shapes. I always have at least one of the Burt's Bees lip balm tubes lying around in my bag, but this time when I went to replenish my stockpile of balms, I found this tin alongside the usual tubes. It looked so cute, I just had to pick this up instead. The Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tin has the same product that comes packaged in a tube, but while the two versions cost the same, you get the double the amount of product in the tin (8.5 g) than when you buy a tube (4.25 g). Talk about something looking cute AND being economical :D
The Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm, just like all of their other lip balms that I have tried, works fabulously on my always-dry lips. It has a tingly-refreshing minty taste to it, and while ordinarily I hate mint (except in toothpastes :P), I like this balm so much, I just put up with the minty flavor. While I would love to gloat about how I got this superadorable tin and saved myself some money, after a while I realized that this isn't the most useful packaging if I am anywhere outside. I don't feel comfortable using my fingers to apply this (goodness knows who touched that shopping cart before me!!), and I am not going to be walking around with Q-tips and hand-sanitizers just to apply a lip balm :-| So yes, this is a fabulous product, and you get a lot more product than the tube version, but this is best kept at home (at least for me).
