Beeswax Lip Balm
Best Purchase In A While
I love the tingly menthol that this chapstick has in it. I was a little wary of the price since it's a little on the high side compared to other brands but I'm glad I gave it a try on a recommendation from a friend. I use this all day long and it actually lasts quite a while. I do find myself reapplying it often because I like the sensation, though. :P I definitely recommend it!

Have to buy another
I bought this yesterday and it is hands down the best lip balm I've ever used. Have to buy another one since I dried it in the dryer today.

Comfort in Familiarity
This was my first Burt's Bees product I ever used and I have to say I fell in love with it. It seems like every lip balm is cherry flavored and I can't stand the taste of cherry. So for one to be mint flavored which is one of my favorite flavors it is amazing. My lips were awfully chapped and the lip balm worked wonders on my dry, awkward, chapped lips. I have to say that the lip balm felt like velvet.

Cold season VERY alternative uses...
I've been using the Burt's classic peppermint lip balm for so long I can't remember when it all started. All I know is that I can't live without it. There's one in my purse, one in my gym bag and one by my bed - can't sleep without it.
Now that the cold season caught up to me I found myself using it to soothe my poor nose from all the kleenex irritation. THEN I found myself at work with an extremely dried out nose, painfully dry. Living in the desert of Arizona is never easy but having a cold makes it impossible. So I pushed up the lip balm and then with my finger took that portion of the product onto my finger tip and then rubbed it between by thumb and index to soften and warm it and... yes, applied it to the inside of my nose. yup. I know it sounds very odd to say the least but it really relieved my painful dryness and also made me breathe easier because the minty vapors cleared my congestion quite a bit.
So that's my story, a little graphic but I figured I would share in case anyone else got caught in that situation and needed some nasal relief.
Just so you know -- usually I'm very sensitive to menthol-type fragrances and oils on my skin. I can't use peppermint castile soap for that reason. Burt's Bees peppermint has never bothered my skin - even when I don't have hand lotion nearby and I apply it to the back of my hands to moisturize. It's a lifesaver.
