New Burts Bees Lip Balms

May 27, 2014


This is just a quick post about some of the newest offerings from Burt's Bees. I was sent a new lip balm and two new Lip Shimmers. You can buy these at Priceline, and Burt's Bees lip balms are currently on a "buy two and save" sale.

The Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut and Pear retails for $6.99 and the Lip Shimmers in the new Apricot and Grapefruit shades are $9.99 each.


The Burt's Bees Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut and Pear is a clear lip balm that has a sweet coconut scent (almost like coconut oil). I am personally not a fan of coconut scented products but I do really like the formula of these balms. I much prefer the minty scent of the original Beeswax Lip Balm from this range, but if you like sweet coconut scents then I highly recommend this balm if you want a nice clear hydrating balm.

Top: Grapefruit. Bottom: Apricot
The two Lip Shimmers are really pretty if you like tinted balms. Sure these contain just over half the amount of product than the basic balms, but they do have some nice shades. Both of these Lip Shimmers have a minty balm base, so the name Grapefruit and Apricot refer to the shades and not the scents.


Grapefruit is a light shimmery pink. This is a pretty shade but I find that if you apply and reapply the balm then the shimmer can build up and can look a little too frosty for my liking. If you like light lip shades then this might be a good tinted balm for you.


Apricot is a Lip Shimmer that contains little/no shimmer. It is a very pretty soft peach shade and this has been my favourite lip product of the three. This is a great product for a natural peach every day lip colour.

So that's my quick update about the newest Burt's Bees Lip Balms that have been released.
Do any of these catch you eye?


  1. I've been wanting to try some Burts Bees products for a while. Apricot looks like such a pretty shade! So natural and lovely, I like that it doesn't have any/much shimmer!

  2. I've never tried these lip balms, I love the color of the grapefruit but I would be afraid of too much shimmer too. The apricot shade fits you perfectly though it seems!
