Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm

Burt's Bees is one of my favourite lip balm brands. They make some gorgeous balms that I've been using for years. I used to buy the original Burt's Bees balm from overseas because I couldn't get hold of it in Australia. Thankfully their products are now readily available here. 

Hot on the heels of the new Acai and Mango Butter balms is their latest lip balm offering the Ultra Conditioning balm. According to Burt's Bees this 100% natural ultra conditioning lip balm is skin friendly, hypoallergenic and has no added flavours or fragrances.

Ultra Conditioning balm has a soft, fruity fragrance and a slightly sweet flavour which I assume is the kokum butter. Texture wise it is similar to the mango butter lip balm, just a little lighter. I've been using this as a night treatment and love the way my lips feel in the morning. This is a lovely balm and has quickly become one of my favourites. 
Burt's Bees says: Kiss dry lips goodbye. Clinically proven to offer four hours of long-lasting moisturisation, 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 also lovingly replenishes your skin with no added flavors or fragrances. It’s hydration at its very highest.

Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm costs $6.95 and is available from Myer, David Jones, Priceline, chemists and Addicted 2 Lip Balm.

Would I buy this? Yes, it's another great balm from Burt's Bees.

  1. This seems really nice. I haven't given the Burts Bees balms much of a go, maybe I should!

    1. Oh you should, they are amazing! The Mango Butter balm is so good and so are the tinted balms. Actually, they're all amazing!
