Hello gorgeous readers!
Here I am with yet another product review, this time it’s about a lip balm. When it comes to lip balms and lipsticks we try to collect as many as possible, in short “we never have enough of them” ! I tried and have used almost all the Maybelline and Nivea lip balms, I have heard of Burt’s Bees lip balm and its products for a long time now, so when I was searching for some random items in store I happened to pick this lip balm as I never feel I have enough :D. This beauty baby tempted me its awesome fragrance as soon as I opened the cap, so I bought it!! Let’s see what experience I had with it.

My take on Burt’s Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit:
After trying a lot many lip balms, I now know what exactly a lip balm has to do to my lips. It has to soften my lips with the immediate application, shouldn’t make them dry or chappy, and should hydrate them for longer time. This balm won’t give any color to your lips, it’s just a lip balm with nude texture. I use lipstick occasionally but I cannot live without using a lip balm 😀 no girl can, I know 😉 😉 after all we all need super soft kissable lips all the time. So, here I ended up with this product, my needs were simple- soften lips, shouldn’t make them dry and should hydrate them for longer time, so did it satisfy my needs??? A biiiigggg “NO” I am very much disappointed with this lip balm.
I had heard awesome reviews about Burts Bees products but this balm did nothing for me. My lips tend to dry fast maybe because of the climate here, but Maybelline lip balms worked awesome for me. This lip balm made them even drier than usual, I had to apply it over and over again. The only best part was the fragrance it had, which tempted me to buy :-X other than that it’s just waste of 3.30$!! I had to re-apply the balm every half an hour 🙁 which is just so irritating for me. One more good thing about the product is, it just melts down on your lips very easily, and no wonder I just ended up using entire lip balm in just fifteen days 😛 😛 I might shift back to my Maybelline lip balm again, no more torture for my lips. I hate to experiment on my lips but the brand and the fragrance made me to go for it. I found the basic Vaseline lip balm better than this lip 🙁 🙁 disappointing disappointing.
Pros of Burt’s Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit:
● Super cute packaging
● Awesome fragrance
● Melts down on the lips when applied
● Smoothen lips with frequent application
● Not tested on animals
Cons Burt’s Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit:
● Doesn’t stand for any of its claims
● Should be applied frequently then it might meet the claims
● The frequent application might end up in completing the product very very very soon
Will I repurchase? No way!!!! I might try different lip balms but I won’t repurchase this product again!!
Will I recommend this product to someone? Well it depends, if you are looking for something which just smoothen your lips, go for it! If you have dry and chapped lips, it’s a waste of money!!!
