Review: Burt’s Bees “Soothing” Lip Balm

This is one of the several items I got for Christmas.  I like most of Burt’s Bees products, including their lip balms.  I especially like the newer versions that offer some “extra” benefits. Here’s what I thought of this one…

Pros:  Inexpensive. Paraben-free. 100% natural.

Cons: Very menthol-y. (Like cough drops or Vick’s Vapo-Rub).  Doesn’t last as long as some others.  A little waxy.

In Summary:  If you have severely dry lips, this might be a better product for you than some others, but the formula doesn’t absorb in as well as you’d need for a serious dryness problem. (You should probably be looking for something in a squeeze tube for that…) My main issue with this lip balm is the too-strong menthol.  I think there are other lip balm products (including Burt’s Bees Açaí Berry and Pomegranate varieties) that work as well as this one, but smell (taste) better.
