Rated 1 out of 5 by NelsBells New Formula-Yuck!
I have been using the Honey lip balm forever. It is the only Burt's Bees I use because the smell is not overwhelming and the texture is great. It really had it all.
I recently bought the new Honey formula and it is awful. I don't want to put it on my lips. The worst is the new smell, which is very synthetic and fake.
Please go back to the old formula!! You had a really great product. It was perfect. Why change it if it wasn't broken.

I have been using the honey burt's bees lip balm since 2007. I refuse to use anything else and I honestly don't think anything was even close to this product. I would usually buy 10 at a time, and eve more at times. I have extremely dry limps no matter what time of the year, and this lip balm always managed to smell AMAZING and keep my lips healthy. I recently purchased the "new flavor" formulation, and it is DISGUSTING! the lip balm's texture is that of a cheap petroleum based product. The moisture level is gone, it smells horrible, the flavor is just plain weird, and with in 2 hours of applying it my lips were dry and chapped. Something I have never experienced with the old formulation! I live in DC and winters can be pretty harsh and this lip balm used to be my rescue. Now after 9+ years I am switching to different company b/c Burt's bees formulations are not what they used to be. Seems like the company is moving toward new lines of products, which is great; however, they are neglecting the basics that made the company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nixsy52 Booo!!! to the "new" flavor :(
I am very, very disappointed with the new flavor. I lost my last chapstick and bought a "new" one today. I almost vomited at the new flavor, especially since it's not even close to the old one and it was completely unexpected. Why fix something that's not broken? The Honey lip balm was perfect the way it was. Please return to the old flavor or create a new name for it and put it back out on the market.

Went to purchase my gazillionth tube of Burt's Bees honey with trepidation as I saw the words "new flavor" inscribed on the tube. Sure enough, I was disappointed as the flavor is much more heavy and unappealing. Seriously, it reminds me of a stinky, unwashed pillowcase. Please!!!! Go back to the original or at least reintroduce it and call it your "vintage honey".
