Currently in my handbag there are three lip balms and two lip glosses. (FYI they include Vaseline Rosy Lips, Blistex, Bourjois Effet 3D, Avon Glossy Delight and a cheapo thing I picked up from H&M) Wherever I go I have, have, have to take at least two lip products with me, just in case I lose one or have an emergency dry lip situation. There’s nothing worse than sitting at your desk all day trying not to lick your lips because they’re super sore from lack of attention.
Today these lovely products have been pushed aside in favour of my new classroom pet – Burt’s Bees. Now, I wasn’t familiar with this brand at all until a few weeks ago when a friend of mine started talking about it when we were perusing in Boots. I knew the range was supposed to be fab, so I was excited to give it a whirl. Today I’ve been sent a collection of cleansers, which all smell delicious and can’t wait to be slapped on my face, as well as two sumptuous lip balms which have already been slapped on my lips.
The existing lip balm has already become a cult product, and with two new additions to the range I hope every lady on the planet can get their hands on one. The two new flavours on offer are Acai Berry and Mango Butter. Both smell deliciously fruity without that sweet sickening sensation you get from a lot of balms. The stick glides on easily, leaving you with a layer of product that isn’t sticky or gloopy, and doesn’t need re-applying every ten minutes. I’ve had mine on for nearly two hours and I don’t yet feel the need to put on another coat (other than the fact that I just like putting it on!)
The sticks are 100% natural and have a beeswax base, meaning they’re nourishing and moisturising as well as being free from nasties. Each variant serves a different purpose so you can get away with buying both without feeling guilty:
Rejuvenating & Reviving: Lip Balm With Acai Berry is infused with the powerful superfruit Acai Berry, native to the Brazilian rainforests. This hydrating ingredient is known to contain antioxidants, Vitamins A, C, D and E, as well as healthy Omega Oils. Lips feel incredibly soft and rejuvenated.
Nourishing & Enriching: Lip Balm With Mango Butter, a luxurious lip balm with the delicious benefits of Mango Butter. This ingredient has amazing emollient and moisturising properties. For lips that feel soft and healthy, try this truly special lip balm.
All of this goodness for only £3.50… make sure you put them on your shopping list this weekend.
