Burt's Bees Lip Balms - Honey Lip Balm and Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter

Hello Sunshine! Does the summer heat kill your healthy lips vibe? Because it kills mine! Well, it started doing so until I went ahead and reached out for my go-to lip buddies, my trusted Burt's Bees lip balms. Believe it or not, Burt's Bees lip balms are the only lip balms I actually finish down to the last drop. Others, I would end up not using or forgetting. But never with my Burt's Bees lip balms. In fact, I use my Burt's Bees lip balms like they're skincare--yup! Literally, after applying my moisturizers, I would apply lip balm--even before I sleep! Rightfully so, because Burt's Bees lip balms are proven and tested winners when it comes to soothing and conditioning my often dry lips.

Trivia, my ultimate favorite Burt's Bees lip balm is this Ultra-Conditioning lip balm with Kokum Butter* number. I've literally gone through like four of these... and I think I only started using this last year? I also give this away to friends and family because that's next level referral yo! I don't just tell my friends and family that this baby's good... I force-feed them a tube so they too can experience how a lip balm can be life-changing! Buy it here

Clinically proven to offer 4 hours of long-lasting moisturization, this ultra-hydrating lip conditioner is infused with rich Kokum, Shea, and Cocoa Butters. Giving you more butters and less wax than other balms, so your lips will be left soft and super smooth. It's hydration at its very highest, with no added flavors or fragrances

Oh, you know what. This baby's so effective in conditioning the lips, it's actually classified under lip treatments... than just basic lip balm! Hands down talaga on this one. 😜

So for my summer update... I recently found myself out of lip balm! Like in the middle of my Visayas Vacation #VisVacay 😜 I realized my lip balm's wiped out!!! It was dreadful. Imagine, I was travelling and dealing with airplane recycled air without a lip balm? Horrific.

So I made a mental note that when I get back, I'd open a new tube. For a change, and since I just finished my nth tube of my Ultra Conditioning Burt's Bees lip balm... I popped myself a new tube. This time around, I gave my last remaining Ultra Conditioning lip balm to my sister, and instead opted out to a Burt's Bees classic, the Burt's Bees Honey lip balm*. First impressions? Ang bango bango bango! Buy it here

I also noticed that the Honey lip balm has a slightly thicker consistency or glide. It's not that it's sticky, but it definitely feels richer when applied compared to the Ultra Conditioning lip balm. As for the moisture, I can't really compare much but so far so good. I do re-apply, like when I eat or drink water, but since the Honey lip balm smells (and yes, tastes pretty darn sweet), I don't mind re-application at all!

 Loved by nature and perfectly sweet. Kind of like you. This natural balm helps nourish your dry lips with a touch of golden Honey and Vitamin E, leaving them soft, supple and super happy.

Now that I'm going out of my comfort zone, trying the Burt's Bees Honey lip balm, I'm definitely going to compare whether my lips are more hiyang to my old fave or to this new lippie discovery.

Over-all, I must admit that I used to not take lip balms seriously. But that all changed when I started getting serious wind burns due to extreme weather (or at least room temperature!) Like for example, in the office, I'm directly under the aircon. It gets really cold, and it reaches a point where it's so unbearable for my lips--they crack! Cracked lips = no joke y'all! One time, my lips were so dry that when I smiled, they didn't just crack. The skin got torn! It was so painful, I couldn't smile for days!

Even more, 'til now the line from that wound is evident. Like it became a lip line... smh so yes, for your own benefit, care for your lips. If you know you'd be in a cold, hot, or dry room for a prolonged period of time, make sure you have a lip balm. You lips would thank you for the love!
