My Lips and Cuticles Crave Burt’s Bees

This is a review of Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm and Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream – Mother Nature’s little present to our lips and cuticles.

I don’t remember how I learned about Burt’s Bees. It’s a well-known brand and was “natural” before the green movement even started. To be honest, I don’t purchase the products because they are natural and even edible, but I’m a customer of Burt’s Bees because the products deliver great results.


Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

The Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is hands down the best lip balm on the market. If anyone wants to challenge that, please feel free.

According to my non-scientific testing, this is the only lip balm that actually sooths chapped lips and makes them soft. The tingling sensation that you feel after you apply it is great too. Heck… I even made a believer out of my husband during his first tour to Iraq. Now, I’m usually the one asking him for the Burt’s Bees!

I put this claim to the test during a recent visit to Cleveland, where the temperatures were below zero with the wind chill. I left my Beeswax Lip Balm in my office. I tried other balms that my mom had and that were in my purse, but nothing helped my chapped lips. A quick trip to the grocery store solved that problem and now I will not leave home without it!

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

I have to admit that even though I have been an avid user of Beeswax Lip Balm for years, I never really tried the other products. However, my friend Sara swears by the Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. She has a knack for recommending great beauty products, so I figured I should try it since dry cuticles are so unattractive. Well… she is right. The Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is just as amazing as the Lip Balm (and no Burt’s Bees isn’t paying me to write this).

I keep the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream in my desk draw and apply it daily when I’m on the phone. The best thing about it is it works immediately and it soaks into your skin leaving no oil. The results are soft cuticles and little to no hang nails. You can clearly see a difference when you use it regularly.

The best thing about Burt’s Bees products is the distribution is amazing. You can find it almost anywhere in the country. So even if you leave home without it, you can be comforted knowing you can purchase it at your corner store.
