Beauty obsession: Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm

True story: I’ve been using Burt’s Bees lip balm since high school. Back then, I couldn’t have cared less about whether the products I used were natural or synthetic–my beauty regimen consisted of anything I liked that was cheap, or which department store beauty counters had a gift with purchase.

If you’d handed me a tube of something and said, “Hey Aleigh! I found this great new stuff that’s supposed to shrink your thighs…but also might turn your skin a nasty shade of green,” I doubt I would’ve hesitated before slathering it on. (Thinner thighs, yes please.)

But now that I’m older (and hopefully wiser), I am starting to see how some of the decisions I made as a stupid teenager who did not appreciate her flat stomach have had an impact on my skin later on. For starters, I should’ve worn more sunscreen.

Fast forward…several…years later, and Burt’s Bees is still on heavy rotation in my beauty mix. Especially their newish tinted lip balms. I’m officially hooked.

This stuff is really great. It goes on with a hint of color, even in the reddest shade, and instantly moisturizes your pout. I’m almost always wary of lipsticks because I have really full lips, and thick glosses or lipsticks can leave me looking clownish. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of color and moisture this little balm offers without being sticky.

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, the details:

  • Six shades, from neutral to deep red offer a subtle hint of color
  • Ingredients include shea butter (for moisture and to protect against aging), beeswax (obviously), coconut oil and rosemary leaf oil
  • $7 each
