Review: Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm With Mango Butter


This £2.99 tube of wonder featured in my February Favourites post with good reason. Everybody needs a good quality lip balm on hand in the cold and winter months and this one from Burts Bees has been my 'go to' for dry lips recently. And not even necessarily when my lips are dry; it smells so good I just want to keep applying it all day long and enjoy the fresh and fruity fragrance of mango - Mmm! It applies smoothly, releasing it's tropical scent, and leaves the lips soft and nourished with a tiny hint of gloss but zero tackiness or stickiness.

This is a 100% natural balm so it's all good for you, and it 'soothes, moisturises and protects' which is a pretty standard claim from a lip balm really. The difference with this one is that since it is all natural ingredients it contains no petroleum jelly; just oils, butters and the likes of lanolin - you know, all the good stuff that means it doesn't just 'sit' on the surface of the lips, instead it sinks in and it gives your lips some real benefits. Plus, the mango butter is a super ingredient as it is rich in vitamins and antioxidants so is just that little bit extra nourishing for the lips. Not to mention smells (and tastes) amazing!

This mango balm is from their 'nourishing' range, but it looks like you can also get acai berry to 'rejuventate' and pomegranate oil to 'replenish'. You can see a couple of their other amazing products on the Burt's Bees site here: (link), but I ordered mine from Feel Unique for just £2.99 (link) and with free delivery too you'll regret not trying this out!

  13. I love this much, much more than the original waxy and irritating beeswax lipbalm, but I have been a bit put off by Burt's Bees since I realized they use animal ingredients in their products, such as lanolin...
