Today I’m reviewing my current favorite lip balm, Burt’s Bees Replenishing lip balm with Pomegranate Oil. Bought it from Sephora a few months back, and after having used it for more than 2 months now, here’s my review on the same.
PS: I love this lip balm!
About Burt’s Bees Replenishing lip balm with Pomegranate Oil: Bring your lips back to beautiful. This replenishing and hydrating natural lip balm is infused with the antioxidant goodness of pomegranate oil. It replenishes moisture to reveal smooth, healthy lips, while it coats them with a hint of color for an even-toned appearance.
Price: Rs. 400 for 4.25g
Packaging: The Burt’s Bees lip balm (Replenishing) come in a sleek yellow coloured twist-up tube, with a pomegranate colored cap. I prefer lip balms in tubes as opposed to potted products for reasons of hygiene! The cap is quite sturdy, shuts with a click, and hence the packaging is travel friendly.
My take on Burt’s Bees Replenishing lip balm with Pomegranate Oil: The lip balm is a pomegranate colored product, which swatches almost transparent. It has a soft, smooth consistency, but not as gooey and buttery like most other lip balms. I mean, it’s neither too stiff/ waxy, nor too balmy. It is something in between, and that’s what makes me love it! I do not like waxy lip balms which spread all around the lips a few minutes after application. So I love this Burt’s Bees lip balm on that front. The balm stays on the lips overnight, or for around 4 hours during the day. I’m okay with re-application, till the time it does what it claims. And, it does what it claims! It does make the lips feel soft and hydrated, and I have not had any problem of flaking lips (sometimes, Maybelline lip balms give me flaky lips when I apply too much). If I apply it at night, I wake up with soft lips the next morning. I do not have severely chapped lips (since I almost always use a lip balm, and drink enough water to keep the skin hydrated too), so I cannot say how it will work for those with severely chapped lips, but I’m pretty sure it won’t disappoint with severely chapped lips too. On everyday wear-and-tear of the lips, it works fine with repairing the delicate skin on the lips.
The all natural ingredients add weightage to the ‘pros’. The light fruity fragrance is nice too, though it fades away in a few minutes after application, and does not bother my sensitive nose!
I just don’t see ANY color on swatching this lip balm, contrary to the claims :\

Pros of Burt’s Bees Replenishing lip balm with Pomegranate Oil:
Cons of Burt’s Bees Replenishing lip balm with Pomegranate Oil:
Verdict: An almost must-have lip balm, go for it if you prefer non-gooey products on the lips. It is, though, a little over-priced in India, as compared to it’s price abroad. So, take your call on the price. It does it’s job well, no doubts about that! So far, this is one of the best lip balms I’ve used. Also, my current favorite!
