Simply Lippy Challenge Day 238 | Burt’s Bees Refreshing Lip Balm in Shade Pink Grapefruit 

Back at the beginning of my challenge on Day 73, I wrote about one of the Burt’s Bees tinted balms which I’ve been using for a long time now.


Up to now, I’ve never tried any of the other balms in the range so I decided to buy another one to see how it faired up against the Pomegranate shade that I’d previously used. 


I was expecting this to have a coloured or tinted balm but it actually didn’t which I was surprised by given that I wanted my lips to have a very subtle colour. But, given I bought it for the purposes of the challenge and wanted a natural makeup day, I tried it out and liked it.


As balms go, it’s hydrating and moisturising, and the pink grapefruit scent smells just gorgeous! Sometimes I find scented products can be a bit sickly but this is lovely.


I’m disappointed there was no tint, so it didn’t really do what I wanted it to do but I wasn’t feeling great so had a very lazy day at home, so the balm was the perfect lip product for the day that was in it.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 130 | Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Shade 13, Pink Grapefruit

If you caught my last post on the Clarins Lip perfector in Juicy Mandarin, you will know that I tried these out for the first time a few weeks ago and absolutely loved them.


Today’s shade / scent is Pink Grapefruit, and the reason I say scent as well as shade is because, not only does it have a gorgeous pink grapefruit colour, but it smells and tastes deliciously like grapefruit too.


Citrus scents are always my favourite scents whether it’s handcream, candles, or of course, lippy. I just love the freshness of citrus and it always makes me smile, and today, there was a very big smile on my face when I first applied this.


The formula as you’ll know from my last post, is a creamy gloss, but has no stickiness at all, and has a lovely soft, luxurious texture which makes the lips feel so smooth when you wear it.


The pigment is gorgeous; so good for a high shine gloss, and although slightly sheer, still gives a lovely pop of colour.


I loved this as much as I did the first time I tried it, and I’ll definitely continue to wear these for a long time to come yet.
