Beautiful Lips with Beeswax

Burt's Bees Lips

During the winter I’m always battling the chapped lips. My chapped lips have the tendency to go from chapped, to a big ol’ cold-sore, so as soon as they start burning, I start applying. I’ve tried chapstick, carmex, soft lips, and while they all were okay there was always something missing. Enter: Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm.

This lip balm moisturizes with natural ingredients such as lanolin, coconut oil, and sunflower oil and then the hydration is sealed with actual beeswax. Beeswax is a natural wax made by the bees in the cell walls of honeycombs and helps to seal the lips keeping them soft, supple, and perfectly kissable. My favorite part? After you put the lip balm on it leaves a peppermint tingle on your lips. Love it!

Burt’s Bees also makes lip glosses, colors, and shimmers, which I have been experimenting with lately. I must admit that I am not really a makeup person. I am perfectly fine with leaving my house without anything on. However, when Lisa challenged me to release my inner beauty and told me to try wearing lipstick every day I decided to give it a shot. So I grabbed some Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Merlot and put it on. It was unbelievable the number of comments I received from both teachers and students saying that they liked my lip color. The Lip Shimmer has the same lip balm base, but also a kiss of color and shine. It comes in an array of beautiful colors and you are sure to find one you like.

Oh and did I mention that both the lip balm and the lip shimmer won’t empty your purse either. The lip balm retails for $3 while the Lip Shimmer $5. Natural, gorgeous, and cheap. Does it get any better?

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, grab a tube of Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer, heal your chapped lips or keep them healthy, and release your inner beauty too!

  1. I love the lip shimmer stuff. Unfortunately I can’t get it where I live now (the Netherlands). Every time I’m in the US I do pick up some though. 🙂

    Not to mention their other stuff as well… love the cuticle cream- lemon butter I believe it’s called.


  2. I big pink puffy heart Burt!

  3. I’m going to have to find some with color. I only have the balm, but I love it.

  4. That is awesome! I will have to get some of that. I love that you got comments about it!
