Instead of the usual tube, I got the tin instead because I like the size and the novelty.Â But perhaps that’s a mistake because I later found the application a tad difficult because this stuff isn’t exactly rich.Â And gosh, it left quite a tingling sensationÂ on my lips because of its peppermint content.Â Â Â
I have to say with some reluctance that this lip balmÂ doesn’t outdo my favourites in terms of the moisturising factor.Â Â Â But still, despite its light texture, itÂ does help to soothe my dry lips.Â Â More importantly, Burt’s Bee Beewax Lip Balm contains only natural ingredients like ultra emollient lanolin and almond oil.Â No petroleum for certain.Â Â So this is something I really like.
I also found myselfÂ enjoying the peppermint taste after a while.Â In fact, it taste exactly like a certain peppermint sweet I used to eat when I was younger!Â Another plus is that it works wellÂ with my lipstick and there was no flaking even after a couple of hours.
I bought this at Dargon Dors Cosmetics (Kim Leng Store) at #03-1126, 32 New Market Road (People’s Park Complex) for S$6.50.Â Â That price for a non-toxic lip balm with natural ingredients?Â Definitely no complains there.
In terms of quality, I still prefer MyLipStuff at this moment.Â But perhaps I should get the Burt’s Bee lip balm tube for comparison next time.Â
