As a mango lover, I bought this without hesitating one single bit and looked forward to using it. This and the other lip balms are 100% natural as they state on their website. And of course, the first thing I do is to smell the scent. The scent can be too sweet and sickly for many. I wouldn’t say it has a strong mango scent; more along the lines of sweet sherbet and a hint of artificial mango. I was unsure about the scent at first but it grew on me however not the biggest fan.
This glides on well without a problem even in cold climates and doesn’t leave a shine. It was nourishing as this product promises however when I have chapped, peeling, very dry lips, I would need a better lip balm. This doesn’t do it justice other than leaving the peeling skin soft. But this works well when my lips are just dry and works great under lipstick. Leaves them feeling soft and hydrated for hours even after the lip balm has worn off. This lasted 2 – 3 hours on the lips which is average I’d say. It doesn’t feel greasy or sticky, always a plus for any lip product.
I do like this to a certain extent as it only works on just dry lips. Better than Vaseline Lips. Inexpensive so I wouldn’t mind repurchasing it or try out the other flavours and properties Burt’s Bees have.
Have you tried any of the Burt’s Bees Lip Balms?
