Clearly, Burt’s Bees Lipbalm is not a new product, but I’ve just been sent a set as a reminder of the product (as if I needed it!) but also a couple of ‘scents’ that I haven’t tried. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know I’m not that keen on scented lip products and I’ll always choose unscented wherever possible. But, I think I’ve found the exceptions right here! When your lipbalm starts to sound more like the cocktail menu, you know that you’re onto a good thing.
So, kicking of with my best scent – Coconut & Pear. It smells exactly of both and is gorgeous – I’d take this combo any way possible.. cake, drink.. or, er balm! Next, Blueberry & Dark Chocolate. Now, in my experience, chocolate scent is something that can go impossibly wrong in beauty – my gag reflex goes into full swing – but not with this. It’s just a bit like Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut. Finally, it’s Pink Grapefruit – kind of sweet and sharp at the same time and the scent has actually made me want to go and buy a grapefruit. I can’t remember the last time I even had grapefruit, but I want it now!
There are some nasty old balm scents out there which makes me think that maybe it isn’t that easy to perfume wax – or maybe it’s always the old ethyl maltol over any decent and more expensive ingredients. Either way, if you’re fussy about balms, Burt’s Bees has it spot on and it’s £3.69 (HERE) very well spent for an aroma that makes you smile.
