Strongest points
Natural, organic product
Weakest points
Hard to apply
Weak choice of shades
Summary
I have two of these products and I want to love them. I do love Burt's Bees tinted lip balms and if you're considering a purchase try those first. These have a little more pigment but I find the choice of shades to be poor. I have Rhubarb, which I really like and so I tried really hard to find another that I liked and would suit me, but to no avail. I did get Caramel, but it's too nineties and too frosty.
The packaging is tiny, so very handbag friendly but very slim. If you have thinner lips, you might appreciate these but I don't and it takes me ages to fill in my lips with the stick and I'm not convinced I get good coverage. They also seem a little patchy. A rare fail from Burt's Bees.

I do always have at least one of these in my bag as I love the fact my lips tingle when I apply it and also the peppermintiness helps freshen breath too.

Burt's stuff is all natural and not tested on animals so great ethics.

My husband was not too keen when we shared bottles of water when travelling as it made the bottle taste minty but I was happy with that!

I love the way it makes my lips tingle from the mint
Weakest points
I only ever buy these on special offer as I think £5 is quite a lot for a lipo balm
Summary
Lovely tingly slightly coloured lip balms full of good natural ingredients.

Strongest points
Easy to use, gorgeous colours, leaves lips really moisturised
Weakest points
No shimmer but that is a good thing and not noticed the flavours??
Summary
I have a few of these in different shades/flavours but I am not sure where the actual flavour is? I think it might just be the colour?
Anyway, it is really easy to apply and lips are very coloured. Not thin and the colours are very vibrant.
Colour lasts too and lips tingle from the mint, I think? Not sure but it is quite cooling anyway.
Thin and easy to store in bags, purses..
Leaves lips feeling and looking great!
