As some of you may already know, I am obsessed with lip balms. Burt’s Bees is one of my favourite brands when it comes to lip and skin care because the products are all chemical-free and 100% natural.
I have been using Burt’s Bees lip balms just about everyday for the last few years. I apply a touch of it every morning before lip colour of any kind. It’s my secret to having smooth, hydrated lips all day long.
Next month, just in time for Valentine’s Day, Burt’s Bees will be releasing their first-ever tinted lip balm so you can have pretty, smoochable lips. It still has all the same great qualities and ingredients as the original, like ylang-ylang, shea butter, vitamin E and beeswax, but now it’ll also have a lovely finish.
Available in six subtle and wearable shades, there is definitely a Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm ($7.99) for you. I like to wear it under a clear gloss sometimes so my lips look naturally tinted. You can also wear it alone if you refuse to go anywhere without at least a little colour on (I also wear it on those makeup-free days when I run to the drug store with huge sunglasses on) and above all, it can still be used as ordinary balm day or night.
It smells great and feels fabulous. I sometimes bring it with me and reapply during the day, too. Winter is hard on the lips so keeping them hydrated is super-important. Look out for this new product next month at your local pharmacy or their online store (available at the end of January).
