Lips tend to become dehydrated and chapped more quickly than the rest of our skin would as they don’t contain any oil glands like the rest of the skin does. My lips get dry and chapped even in the month of summer and I am always on the lookout for a lip balm that will magically make my lips into soft and supple. I had heard a lot about Burt’s Bees lip balms for their conditioning and repairing properties, but could never buy one as the brand was not available in India. Since the launch of Sephora, they are available at all the Sephora outlets in India.
As per Burt’s Bees:
Kiss dry lips goodbye. Clinically proven to offer 4 hours of long-lasting moisturization, this ultra-hydrating lip conditioner is infused with rich Kokum, Shea, and Cocoa Butters. Giving you more butters and less wax than other balms, so your lips will be left soft and super smooth. It’s hydration at its very highest, with no added flavors or fragrances.
- Clinically proven to moisturize for 4 hours with 1 application
• Hypo-allergenic with no added flavors or fragrances
• Replenishes skin with Kokum, Cocoa and Shea Butters that melt on lips
• Leaves lips feeling soft, supple and health
When I first came across the Burt’s Bees lip balms at Sephora-Plaza Singapura on Orchard Road, I couldn’t help but buying one for myself. As my lips get dry and chapped easily I thought it would be better to pick the one that provides the maximum conditioning and I bought Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter. After having used it for three weeks, I realized that it doesn’t stay up to its claim of providing moisturization for 4 hours. When applied, it moisturizes the lips well immediately but the moisturization lasts only for 15 – 20 minutes and lips start to get dry. It needs to be reapplied every half an hour.
There are many other lip balms in the market that would do the same or better job at a lesser price than Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter.
Have you ever tried Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter? What do you think of it?
