Having a good lip moisturizer on hand is an absolute must for me. Whether I’m driving in my car or about to go to bed, I need something reliable to give my lips the boost they need. They have a tendency to get dry no matter the weather and having dry lips is so not cute. What I look for in a lip balm are natural moisturizing ingredients that leaves skin soft long after I put it on without the tackiness of a gloss. If it can give me some color – extra brownie points.
Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer promises to do all of these things. Loaded with Shea Butter and rich fruit oils like coconut and sunflower to nourish and moisturize lips, leaving them soft while keeping them pretty with soft, color. Being familiar with the brand, I was pretty confident that these lip products would deliver on the conditioning front. However I was bit skeptical on the color. I’ve tried other products that said it would give me color only to give me a high gloss when I put it on.
In this case, I’m so glad I was proven wrong!
Not only did these lip shimmers give me color, it gave rich and shimmery colors, each shade living up to its name. It just what I need when I need to freshen up on the go. My lips felt smooth, the Peppermint flavor leaving them all nice and tingly.
Needless to say, I was very impressed with these lip shimmers and my lips are too!
