i love the new formula! the scent is lighter, slightly sweeter, and doesn't linger as long as the old formula. i found the scent of the old one very repellent, even though i loved the texture of the lip balm. now that the scent is no longer a problem, i will be stocking up on this.

Oh, man, am I ever missing the old formula. The texture is okay, but the smell just slaps you in the face—and it's more reminiscent of old-timey grandpa candy than actual honey. I much prefer the wonderfully neutral old formula, with only a hint of honey. So much so that I went on eBay and bought 12 tubes of it. That'll keep me happy and moisturized for a while!

Rated 1 out of 5 by KristiB603 THUMBS DOWN on "The New Honey Flavor"
Burts Bees honey lip balm is the only thing I've used on my lips for years. In fact, my two children have used it their whole lives too. We all give this "new honey flavor" a HUGE thumbs down on the smell and taste. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! PLEASE go back to the old honey formula or we will be forced to change when our old honey tubes are gone.

The old formula of honey lip balm was so amazing! So maybe other people did not think that it was like honey. Who cares? What about those who only like the old honey and enjoy the smell (which is quite calming to me) and the feel of it on the lips.
Lets talk about the "new and improved honey", which to me is not. The feel of it when applying on my lips is lip rubbing sand paper on them, I am not trying to exfoliate my lips I am trying to keep them nice and soft! Which the old formula did mind you. The smell of the new formula is quite repulsive, it is not appealing at all. The hubby came home with the honey lip balm thinking he was all amazing, tried it and was like sorry honey (no pun intended), that money you spent (like 4$) is going in the trash. I really did try it for a few days thinking it would grow on me, but it didn't.
I only have a small amount left of the old amazing incredible honey flavor that it used to be. At this time I only use it right before I go to sleep. Soon I will not be able to go to sleep because I will have run out. This is such a sad situation indeed!
Burt Bees please listen to all of your faithful buyers!!!!!! Bring back the old formula of honey!!! If the "new customers' don't like it so what. I am sure that you are losing more customers by not having this old formula. I know that I have not bought anything else that is burts bees brand. And I used to use the lotion, shampoo, and so on.....so much business you have lost. I am scared that you will get rid of the other things that I love as well so why continue with them?
