Burt's Bees Wax Lip Balm Review


Finally! I have in my hands the Balm that everyone raves about! It's the Burt's Bees Lip Balm! :) For the past few weeks, I've been suffering from severe chapped lips. I've been reading good feedback about this so when I had the time, I hurriedly went to the nearest Beauty Bar Boutique.

I can say that I was torn between the Burt's Bees in tube and Burt's Bees in  tin. The tube version has Vitamin E but it is only 4.5g while the tin hasn't the Vitamin E, but it is 8g! Almost half of the tube! There are also new flavors of the balm but of course I want to try the Classic where they are known! :)


So what's the promise of this famous Balm?

"Give your lips the soothing feeling they deserve. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. We've even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle. Take your pick of an old-fashioned yellow tin or a recycled plastic tube. No wonder it is our most popular product."

For ingredients, kindly click the picture below. :)





It is my first time to see a lip balm with beeswax. I searched it on Google and found out that it is really good on our lips! :) What I like most about this is that it is made out of organic, so no harmful chemical for our lips! :)



My first impression when I smell the balm? Menthol! No! I don't like it. I don't like balm that gives my lips cool feeling. But still, I gave it a shot!



Pogi Points:

1. It is organic.

2. It gives a super matte finish! I absolutely love how matte it is on lips. :)

3. It makes my lips soft just on the first application! :)

4. Yes I hate the soothing feeling. But with this balm, I am starting to love it! :)

5. It goes a long way! Since it is 8g, I think it could last for 3- 4 months. :)

6. It is very handy and manly. So guys will not be shy to buy and use this. :)


Downside:

1. It is only available at Beauty Bar. I hope it would be available at local drugstores as well. :)

2. The tin can is not hygienic compare to the tube. :) You need to wash or clean your fingers before applying it.

3. Opening the can needs effort. Haha.


Ratings:

I will give Burt's Bees Wax Lip Balm a PERFECT POGI POINTS 5/5  


Mr. Pogi says:

I would highly recommend this for people who have chapped lips. It's effective. :)

Money well spent! :)

Wow. I haven't known that there are a lot of benefits that we can get from this oil.



"Warm and spicy Tea Tree Oil is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the Australian tea tree. It has proven history of over sixty years of safe usage. With a lot of of properties, such as for massaging purposes, it absorbs oil, soothes and deep cleans your skin leaving it harsh free."



I was just browsing blogs when I came up to read about Zen Zest Tea Tree Oil. Most of the bloggers agreed that it is effective for pimples. Since it is cheaper than the Body Shop, I gave it a try.





Product to be reviewed: Zen Zest Tea Tree Oil
Price: 150 pesos/ 4-5$
Where to buy: Zen Zest Stalls
Where did I buy: Zen Zest SM Bacoor
For: Fight against pimples



How to use:

Apply directly on desired skin. Can be use as massage oil. Use sparingly.


WOW! 2 in 1. You can also use it as a massage oil! Best for those who have bacne as well. :) 


Ingredients:

Water, Denatured Ethyl Alcohol, Peg40 Hydrogenerated Castor Oil, Tea Tree Oil.


Pogi Points:



1. Affordable. This small bottle could last up to 1 year. :)



2. It helps to dry pimples. After two days to a week of applying it, you can already see results.



3. 3 in 1-- for pimples, bacne and as a massage oil. Although haven't tried this for bacne or as a massage oil.



4. It has oil control properties. :)


Downside:

1. It hurts. Every time I dab it on my pimples, there is a burning sensation (but I think that's the reason for drying up the pimples.)



2. Not hygienic if you are sharing this with your family/friends.

3. I'm not fond of the smell--minty, leafy, herbal.

I've been using this for about a year now and I can say that I need not to worry every time I have pimples. Though I can't compare it with The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil since I haven't tried it yet, I still recommend this for people who have acne prone skin. I would definitely avail this again! :)
