POTW #7 | Burt's Bees Mango Lip Balm

Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm
Burt's Bees Mango Lip Balm

Monday again. Where does the weekend go, eh? Another week has flown past us and with it brings another instalment of 'product of the week'. Apologies for not having one up last week but I have Gone Girl to blame for that. I spent the majority of last Monday reading as I got to a really exciting part and I just couldn't for the life of me put it down. But fear not because we're back on schedule again and this week's stand out product is Burt's Bees Nourishing lip balm with mango butter.

Lip balms are always an essential part of my makeup routine. I will never apply lipstick or lipgloss without a lip balm underneath. For me, it's like going out without any underwear on - Ok, maybe not quite that dramatic but still it's essential and I think everyone should have one good lip balm in their makeup bags at all times.

I tried the Burt's bees beeswax lip balm years ago and I wasn't really a fan. I wasn't keen on the tingly sensation and since then I've never really found myself gravitating towards their lip balms. One day whilst browsing the aisles of Boots I had a tough decision to make between the Lanolips lip ointment and the Burt's Bees lip balm, you can probably guess which one I went for. My wallet would not have been happy with the alternative option.

It has a smooth buttery formula that glides onto the lips easily. It's a tiny bit greasy but nothing too major - I've used worse! Scent wise, we're talking a delicious sweet, tropical, fruity scent - Yum, yum! - and it comes in a twistable tube that is easy to use and not to mention it's the perfect size for my handbag. Excellent. What I love most about this lip balm is that it's made with 100% natural ingredients - No nasties in sight! Another good thing about this is it's quite long lasting. More often than not lip balms have to be applied a couple of times throughout the day but not with this one - Once at night and again in the morning and I'm good to go. Smooth, soft and hydrated lips is what I'm left with and I couldn't ask for more from a lip balm. Love it.

And there we have it, this week's 'product of the week'. I hope you all had a lovely Monday and enjoy the rest of your week!

What product have you been reaching for the most this week?

Love,
Cliona xx
