Burt`s Bees Philippines` 100% Natural Lip Balms | Review and Top Picks

Hello lovely ladies!


Recently, I`ve been really loving smooth lips. It had been raining so much lately and the weather feels cold which is why I had been having dry and chapped lips these past few days.

Fortunately, I was able to grab different variants of Burt`s Bees Lip Balms through SampleRoom.Ph.
I had been using these lip balms interchangeably since last year. The variants have different scents although some tend to have closely related fragrance. Also, each of them gives off a certain vibe which is fantastic for the different seasons and moods.

Burt`s Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter smells pleasantly sweet. It reminds me of the tropical weather at the beach. The scent is very fitting to summer.

Burt`s Bees Lip Balms - Product Review and Top Picks - Honey Lip Balm with Vitamin E 

Burt`s Bees Honey Lip Balm with Vitamin E smells quite odd. It somehow reminded me of candle wax. However, the longer I get acclimated with the smell, the more it smelled quite alright compared to the other variants. Out of all the variants in this review, it has the least favorable scent.

Burt`s Bees Philippines Lip Balms - Product Review and Top Picks - Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter

Burt`s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter smells wonderful! It`s hypoallergenic and clinically tested with 4-hour moisturization. I`ve often used this specific variant because the product glides on very smoothly on the lips and it gives my lips more than just 4 hours of moisturization.

Burt`s Bees Philippines Lip Balms | Product Review and Top Picks - Soothing Lip Balm with Eucalyptus & Menthol

Burt`s Bees Soothing Lip Balm with Eucalyptus and Menthol is indeed comforting. The Eucalyptus and Menthol scent provide a fantastic cooling fragrance. However, only after a few times of using the lip balm, it started to get deformed as if it melted and was reformed. It`s possible that this is due to the room temperature wherein it was placed.

Burt`s Bees Philippines Lip Balms | Product Review and Top Picks - Island Lip Balm with Passion Fruit
Island Lip Balm with Passion Fruit has a paste-like look. Besides the Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil, it is the only solid white lip balm unlike the others that have a translucent color. Like the Burt`s Bees Honey Lip Balm with Vitamin E, it has a more unique scent compared to the other variants.

Burt`s Bees Philippines Lip Balms | Product Review and Top Picks - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil 
Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil is the only red lip balm out of all the variants. It leaves a slight red color which gives the lips a natural-looking boost of color. It`s wonderful to use if I want a little pop of color on the lips.

TOP PICKS

1. Burt`s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter
I chose Burt`s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter as my top pick because it has most of the factors I look for in a lip balm. It is hypoallergenic, has a non-irritating scent and gives long lasting moisturization.

2. Burt`s Bees Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Acai Berry 
I chose this variant as my second pick because it truly has a well-balanced sweetness. Whenever I use this lip balm, the color violet, and Acai Berry ingredient are reminiscent of a cool and cozy atmosphere.

3. Burt`s Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit
This lip balm with pink grapefruit is literally pleasant to the senses. It`s usable whichever moods or seasons there are.

Burt`s Bees Soothing Lip Balm with Eucalyptus and Menthol would`ve been my top pick only if it didn`t get deformed. It was unfortunate that it did because I can hardly use it with ease. Bits and pieces of the lip balm kept getting on my lips whenever I try to use it. Also, Burt`s Bees` Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil is quite close to making it to my top 3 picks because it gives off a natural reddish color on the lips. However, my 3rd pick beat it.

All in all, Burt`s Bees lip balms are effectively moisturizing. Almost all of them have pleasant or sweet-smelling natural fragrances. I like the lip balms because they`re 100% natural and contain great ingredients like sunflower oil and coconut oil.
