Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Burt's Bees Lip BalmBurt's Bees Lip Balm is designed to replenish and hydrate dry lips leaving them smooth and healthy looking. It contains Pomegranate oil which helps to moisturize and protect the skin and is also high in antioxidants.

It is available in pomegranate, honey or medicated and is made with real bees wax.

I have a Burt's Bees Lip Balm and it is just brilliant. It leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth. I think it is also good value for money.

Users Conclusions:

This lists below summarizes what users think of the balm.


  • Moisturizes
  • Soothing

  • No SPF

To Sum Up

On the whole this lip balm does everything you would expect from a balm. Although, if a SPF were to be added that would make it an exceptional product for the price.

Burt's Bees Lip Balm varies in price from $0.99 - $3 depending where you shop, and you can often pick up multi-packs which are better value, and also handy as it can run out quickly.

Smith’s Rosebud Salve Review | Multipurpose Body/Lip Balm Moisturizes & Soothes

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Smiths Rosebud SalveSmith's Rosebud Salve is a multipurpose balm that moisturizes lips, hands, basically any dry skin and can be used to calm skin irritations. It apparently can also take the sting out of burns and treat diaper rash too.

Rosebud Salve was made in the U.S.A by a druggist in 1892. It doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, so I would recommend it even for a baby's sensitive skin.

Does it really work?

There's many user reviews out there on this balm and I can't find any negative comments about it.

Listed below are some of the benefits and features people have said they got from this lip balm:

  • Glossy
  • Non waxy or sticky
  • Soothing
  • Soft rose scent
  • Effective


A blend of Essential Oils (Aromol) and cotton seed oil in a petrolatum base.

I like that fact that is doesn't contain a huge list of chemicals in its ingredients.

It is available in a variety of flavors including minted, strawberry and brambleberry.

If you are interested in Smith's Rosebud Salve it retails for $7 on Amazon but if you shop around you can get it for around $5. Which for the amount of uses it has is a good price.
