Review: Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia



Background

Burt's Bees is well known as the yellow tube tingly lip balm. They've recently expanded and included a line of tinted lip balms. Retails at $7.99 which is pretty pricey. I believe I bought mine in a pack of 2 burt's bees products at Target for $6. I actually bought this probably over a year ago but I'm finally getting to this one.

The product is 100% natural. Coconut oil, vegetable, beeswax, olive oil are some of the top ingredients

Opinion

As many people talked about, the packaging is very deceiving. It looks like the lip balm will kind of be a jumbo tube but it's just normal sized. Nothing wrong with the packing but the brown lip balm tube isn't the most attractive packaging out there.

The color I have is Red Dahlia, which is a dark berry red. It's really beautiful for the winter time.
The one thing I don't like is that when the lip balm gets soft, you can't really control where the color goes. So when you put on the lip balm you get color all around your lips and that's not cute.

Other than that, it's a great lip balm. Conditions and hydrates the lips. Smells fresh. If you are looking for a multi purpose lip product that adds color and protects, I definitely recommend this!
