I have tried every type of chapstick at the pharmacy to soothe my bout of dry, crusted lips. But nothing ever fully worked. One day, my friend recommended me try Burt's Bees Beeswax chapstick. I had always seen Burts Bees products around, but never fully considered it a legitimate chapstick, for my case anyways.
But being in the desperate painful state I was, I decided to purchase the 15 oz yellow tube. To my greatest surprise, right when I applied Burt's Bees to my lips, my whole mouth felt a soothing cooling sensation. I actually felt that this was working to soften and moisturize my lips. And best of all, I felt that continuous cooling sensation for a while, which made my lips feel ultimately refreshed and clean.
Other chapsticks I have tried always had a "plastic" feel to them, and I felt that my lips were not getting that full treatment of soothing moisture. Instead, Burt's Bees Beeswax chapstick softened my lips within a half-hour, constantly making my lips feel comfortably natural, as they should be. Need I mention it was named "Beauty All Star" by Women's Health? That's definitely saying something!
In addition, the peppermint fragrance that remains is always a big plus for me. Sometimes, when I accidently lick my lips, a regular chapstick will taste awful; but with Burt's Bees, it actually does not taste like a plastic factory. That in itself is a very good indicator of the type of product I am placing on my lips. I totally trust it.
I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants comfortable, soft, fragrant, and natural lips from a product that is eco-friendly and always reliable.
