Fresh Finds: Burt's Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit


What it is: Burt’s Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit

What they say: Give your lips a kiss. This juicy lip balm is made with nutritious, tropical Pink Grapefruit Seed Oil, bursting with powerful vitamins. Refresh your lips with a sweet hint of citrus.

How to use:  Apply liberally for an energized twist on hydrated lips.

What I think:  For years I always just grabbed whatever lip balm was cheapest, closest to the check-out line and/or happened to be floating in the bottom of my bag (honestly, for who knows how long! Eek!). 

Then, on my quest for more natural products I decided to give Burt’s Bees a chance. I know a lot of people – both male and female – who swear by it. I purchased the Pink Grapefruit and the Honey lip balms. 

Overall, I definitely prefer the Pink Grapefruit. It’s less waxy than the honey and has a much better smell – my boyfriend even commented when I first started using it “Did you buy grapefruit or something?” I find the honey scent to be slightly offensive, in all honesty. 

I apply lip balm every morning regardless of what other lip products I might use on top – gloss, stain, lipstick. And then usually reapply once or twice throughout the day. 

I find it’s a nice little fruity pick-me-up; however, I'm not sure if I'll buy it again once I use it up (which seems to be never -- I have lip balms forever because I lose them then find them again!). While I like the smell, the texture is just a little too waxy for me.

Buy it online:  Drugstore.com $2.69 for 0.15 oz.
