every evening before bed, i slather on a thick lip treatment. in an attempt to mimic what a hydrating night cream does for the face, i create a mini mask for my mouth by dousing it in product. i have a few favorites that i rotate – this dior beauty, ever-popular aquaphor, and i always travel with this tube of l’occitane. i have my bases covered and didn’t really think that i was missing anything great – but when burt’s bees put their classic formula into a squeeze tube? i obviously wasn’t going to pass that by.
i haven’t bought a tube of burt’s bees in forever and i had forgotten how minty delicious and soothing the formula is. the new tube option has everything that you love about the original, but this version is soft, smooth and rich with moisture. i love it to pieces and after several nights of use, i’m taking it into the daytime – because that minty tingle and the beautiful shine that it delivers is just too good to waste. you can easily layer this over your favorite lipstick for a little added moisture and shine, the finishing look is soft, dewy, beautiful.
i like that burt’s bees has reinvented a classic, and at such a glorious drugstore price, i think this one is going to find a home in many a makeup bag.
