Burt’s Bees lip balm from beeswax Vitamin E and peppermint
How I love natural cosmetics and fall for a vintage look packaging is not surprising that I was recently walking through Muller while i found myself just in front of the shelf with Burt’s Bees products 🙂
Burt’s Bees is a brand created in 1984 in Maine, USA from the collaboration of the artist Roxanne Quimby who was in her wandering in USA, Hitchhiking encountered a beekeeper, Burt Shavitza (bearded dude which you can see on the boxes :)) and they quickly start a cooperation. Initially Roxanne crafted candles, which rapidly were in high demand. Since 1991, they started with the production of lip balm, according to a recipe from the 19th century, which quickly became a bestseller.
With the motto Nature knows best, Burt’s Bees products are made from 99% to 100% natural ingredients (in the 99% natural composition products phenoxyethanol is used as preservative).
Knowing that I could never have too much lip balm, because they are nonstop used and because after a while they just disappear somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle of my apartment, I first decided to test this kind of product.
This lip balm is made from 100% natural ingredients, in these cases is not a problem for me and a small concession is granted in terms of imperfect scent, packaging …
But… In this case, all is good, natural ingredients, good care and hydration of the lips, pleasant taste and smell. I have not tried it on cracked, very dry lips, so I do not know how to act in that case. I use it now in this cold and windy, stormy (dry) weather very often, cracks or dryness did not come and I’m very satisfied with the condition, the softness of the lips 🙂 Like the addition of mint because it acts very refreshing and someway tickling, every time it is applied the smell is very pleasant, simply natural and refreshing, although I do not know why, the first time i applied it I was disappointed by feeling just the smell of peppermint, my nose was probably expecting some sweet honey notes version.
The texture is quite thick but easy to spread and does not leave a sticky, heavy layer on the lips, or white residues but to the contrary, remains on the lips for a long time a light, smooth, transparent, fresh film 🙂
Packaging, may at first sight look a bit strange, because of the bearded old man, the box, really cute, with its warm, sunny colors and the bees, is vintage.
Do you use a lip balm? What are your favorite? Have you tried some of Burt’s Bees products? I do have a few on my wish list 🙂
