Favourite balm

My go to lip balm. Cheap, majority of them keep the lips hydrated without drying them out. The strawberry & pomegranate ones are my most purchased. Some of the ‘white’ coloured balms have a weird waxy texture that isn’t very hydrating so I don’t purchase those. Show details


I bought the Burts Bees cucumber and mint lip balm - the combo flavour wasn't to my liking. While wearing the lip balm my lips were moisturised, but as soon as it dried my lips were dry and flaky. I've never had to pull so much dry skin from my lips before until I started using this lip balm. Only bought a few weeks ago and have throw it out today as it's not worth the dry and cracked lips. Show details

Works Well

I am so glad that I bought this Burt's Bee Lip Balm. It leaves my lips feeling so soft after use. Show details

Very small writing for the peppermint so strong it burns!

I bought this "Vitamin E and Pepperment" lip balm because I didn't see the very fine print on the very bottom of the box. I had checked to make sure as best I could that there were no obvious flavours as the other boxes were marked. There didn't seem to be a space on the rack for the same type I had purchased previously, which was the ultra-conditioning. Very deceptive to have such very fine print on the bottom of the box stating it contained peppermint. It was only after I had applied it that it burnt so much that I had to take if off and that was with much difficulty. Show details

Someone said- do not purchase - they were right

I had a bit burned lips and bought the balm to make them moisturised. My daughter said not to buy because she had bad experience but I did not listen.
Today is a second day I am using it and guess what, I have got cold sore on my lips which I never experienced before.
I asked my daughter to specify the issue with this lip balm and she said she had a cold sore after using it.
OMG! What's that? I do not have any allergies and never had cold sores, now I have got something bad because of this product. Not fair! And my lips are still dry. Such a bad quality.  Show details

Disappointing lip balm

I really wanted to like Burt's bees but it just didn't work for me. For a few weeks of using it daily my lips were dry, cracked and sore - somehow it was worse than using no lip balm at all.  Show details

Life Saver

This is the only lip balm I want to use. I've tried a lot from natural balms to medicated ones. My lips crack and get very red and dry around the sides, sometimes bleed. The peppermint in this gives instant cooling relief and the thick texture is hydrating and long lasting. Seriously good stuff.

Fave lip balm

I really love Burt’s bees lip balm I’ve used the plain honey scented and recently have tried the pink grapefruit and both make my lips nice and smooth don’t irritate them and smells lovely Show details

the range is fantastic

I couldn't ask for more from this product. I have chapped and dry lips and this product makes that bearable. This keeps my lips supple for more than 6 hours which is purely fantastic! Show details

Dries out and irritates lips

I purchased two tinted lip balms from Burt's Bees from Adore Beauty, almost certain they would be perfect for my lips. WRONG. The whole "8 hours of moisture" is rubbish and furthermore, they actually dry out and irritate my lips - it's kind of like they're giving you the poison and feeding you the cure at the same time. Makes me wonder whether this is just a problem unique to me or whether they're actually doing it deliberately in an underhanded way to get you more dependant on their lip balms. Whatever the case, that's $20+ down the drain. Also, the tint is tiny and barely noticeable. Never again. Show details

Love it

I love the entire Burts Bees lip balm range. The original peppermint flavour is nice. But my favorite is still the pomegranate. It's so hard to find though. Can't find it anywhere in shops and online is always sold out. Very frustrating.

Not the best

I recently bought the Pomegranate lip balm and I love the smell and subtle tint but my lips got dryer and started cracking after using it. Gave it a second go and my lips were so sore. Applied another brand and within an hour started feeling better. I’m sad to say I won’t buy this product again Show details

I love the feel and smell of this balm

I love the feel and smell on this balm however I'd love a thicker texture that lasted longer. It's also a little bit expensive for my liking but still affordable. Show details

Has anyone tried the lipsticks? The colours look great, I would like to know if they moisturise and if the colour stays on. Thank you!




  • Burt's Bees states that its range of lip balms is especially useful to soothe lips when the weather is dry, cold or windy.
  • Burt’s Bees Lip Balms come in three plainer options: an original beeswax lip balm (which has a subtle peppermint flavour), an ultra conditioning lip balm, and an all-weather SPF 15 moisturising lip balm.
  • Also available in a variety of largely fruit-flavoured balms, including: pomegranate, acai berry, honey, strawberry, coconut and pear, pink grapefruit, mango, watermelon, cucumber mint and wild cherry.
  • Tinted lip balms are also available. They come in 6 different shades, and provide hydration for 8 hours.
  • Made without parabens, phthalates, petroleum jelly and SLS.
  • The inclusion of beeswax and lanolin makes these lip balms unsuitable for vegans.

Here’s what reviewers thought

The Burt’s Bees’ lip balms were a favourite lip care product amongst reviewers. This lip balm was described as an oldie but a goodie, providing long-lasting hydration for lips that often stayed on lips for hours. The balms also felt clean and nourishing for lips, without being overly thick or greasy.

It was noted that the non-tinted lip balms were more long-wearing than the tinted lip balms.
