The last time I wore a Burts Bees balm, it was one of their replenishing lip balms which I really like and have been wearing for a few years now. And because I’m a fan of that, when I stumbled across this shimmer balm the other day, I decided to buy it and see what it was like.
The balm itself is everything you would expect from Burts Bees, it is hydrating, moisturising, and very easy to apply. It feels nourishing the minute you put it on your lips, and definitely leaves them feeling softer than before application.
However, as finishes go, the shimmer element to this is quite similar to that of a frosted lipstick and I’m just not really a fan. I don’t think it helped matters that the shade was very ‘pink’ either, as we all know I’m not a fan of ‘pink’, pinks.
So, I don’t think I would wear the shade again, but I do really love the formula so it’s kind of a catch twenty two situation! Any balm that is moisturising and hydrating is good in my eyes, I just wish there wasn’t so much shimmer. I could cope with a little, but this has quite a lot, and is just not really my thing.
