Burts Bees – Lip Crayons

Burts Bees – Lip Crayons

If you’re a regular reader of Beauty Best Friend then you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Burt’s Bees. I like everything that they stand for, their beeswax lip balms are second to none and I use their natural Baby Bee range on my little girl. Over the past few years they’ve progressed their lip products and now offer a range of lip colour items – their Lip Shimmer in Guava was one of the first products that I ever reviewed on my blog! Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons* are a range of 6 lip colour crayons made from 100% natural ingredients. They are infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil, and of course they include beeswax too. The chunky crayon format is one that I like but feels a bit different from the other Burt’s Bees lip products of the past. It makes the colour easy to apply, although I recommend using a lip liner first if you want a really defined lip as it can be tricky getting...

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...

My 3 favourite….. Lipcare Products

My 3 favourite….. Lipcare Products

This is the second in my occasional feature ‘My 3 favourite…..’ in which I choose my 3 favourite products from a particular category. Today I will be discussing my 3 favourite lipcare products and explaining why I like them so much. I’m a bit of a sucker for lip balms, particularly if they’re in cute packaging, but they don’t always live up to their claims so I have picked 3 lipcare products that actually work and have different benefits for the lips. The first lipcare product that really makes the grade is Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm from Dior. I’ve been using this for a couple of years now and absolutely love it! It’s sort of a cross between a lip balm and a lipstick – it has been designed to enhance the lips’ natural colour, and it reacts with your lips’ own ‘chemistry’ to make lips look pinker, fuller and radiant. The pale pink balm looks pretty much clear when you apply it to your lips, but after...

Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Champagne

Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Champagne

I had been lusting after this Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Champagne for ages, ever since I reviewed their Lip Shimmer in pink Guava last Summer (you can read that review here). Although I really liked the pink Guava one I felt that the more neutral Champagne shade would suit me better, so I decided to ‘invest’! Burts Bees is one of my favourite brands for lip care products, they 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...

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...
