The lip balm that tastes good enough to eat!

The lip balm that tastes good enough to eat!

I picked up this cute Bee Good Raspberry & White Chocolate Lip Balm* in my goody bag from a recent blogger event that I attended in Leeds, the #LeedsMarchMeet. It was a social meeting for bloggers who live in the Leeds area and the aim was to raise money and collect donations for a local foodbank. I had a great time at #LeedsMarchMeet, it’s always nice to meet other bloggers – they’re such a friendly bunch! We also got crafty making our own name badges and feasted on sweets and tasty homemade cakes. There were several health and beauty goodies in my goody bag including this lip balm from Bee Good. The brand was created in 2008 by a Hampshire beekeeper and his wife when they were looking to find uses for excess honey and beeswax from their bees. The brand has leaping bunny status, meaning that their products aren’t tested on animals, and the natural ingredients of the lip balm include British beeswax, Vitamin E, Borage Oil and Echium...

Burt’s Bees – Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate

Burt’s Bees – Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate

Burt’s Bees was one of the very first natural skincare brands that I fell in love with, and since then I’ve reviewed a few of their products including this Lip Shimmer in Guava. Their lip balms are my absolute favourite, they’re made with 100% natural ingredients such as beeswax and natural oils and don’t make my lips feel sticky. I was recently sent this Burt’s Bees Revitalizing Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate* to try out and I absolutely love it! The chocolatey fragrance really comes through and it actually makes me want to eat chocolate when I apply it (not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!). I love to go walking and this lip balm really prevents my lips from chapping in this wet and windy weather that we’ve been having recently. Burt’s Bees Revitalizing Lip Balm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate is the perfect low-calorie chocolatey treat and at just £3.99 each a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm in any flavour would make a perfect stocking...

Burt’s Bees – Lip Balm With Pink Grapefruit

Burt’s Bees – Lip Balm With Pink Grapefruit

Burt’s Bees is my favourite brand for lip balm, and for the past few months I have been using their Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom (you can read that review here). However as that is now running out and it doesn’t really give lips much of a tint I have decided to try out one of Burt’s Bees’ standard Lip Balms – Lip Balm With Pink Grapefruit – as I love the scent and taste of pink grapefruit. I think that Burt’s Bees are a great natural brand, striving to produce 100% natural beauty products and they also do a lot of work to help protect bees, given that a lot of their products contain beeswax. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm With Pink Grapefruit comes in a simple twist-up bullet applicator. I have been using it for the past week, applying it in the evening just before I go to bed. When I wake in the morning my lips still feel moisturised and soft which I don’t find happens...

Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Guava

Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Guava

This pink Lip Shimmer in Guava is the first of two Burts Bees lip products that I am testing right now. I just love Burts Bees’ vision – “…to create and educate people on truly natural products that have a positive effect on both you and the world you live in for the good of your well-being, for the good of the environment and for The Greater Good.” Burts Bees strive to produce 100% natural beauty products and they also do a lot of work to help protect bees, given that a lot of their products contain beeswax. In my opinion a lot of natural beauty brands scrimp on their packaging design and end up looking a bit down-market. Not Burts Bees! I just love their packaging in eye-catching yellow and red, with just a touch of the traditional about it. This little lip shimmer comes in a twist-up bullet formation (although it does not twist back down which is a bit annoying) with the eye-catching Burts Bees logo on the front. The...
