Burt's Bee Tinted Lip Balm comes packaged in a dainty cardboard container. I have to tell you that the main reason why I purchased this was because of the outside cardboard box. The cardboard container does absolutely nothing for the product and most people would toss it out after opening it but I think it's so cute. When you pull it open, there's even a message on the side. The actual lip balm on the inside looks nothing stellar-just a normal plastic tube of lip balm.
Burt's Bee is known for their 100% natural products. I don't care whether it's natural or not as long as the product works and doesn't harm me. The natural is just a plus for me.
Moisturizing level is about 7 out of 10. When I have this on, it feels like the product is sinking into my lips as opposed to just lying on top of my lips like the EOS Visibily Soft lip balm does. I get the feeling that this lip balm renews my lips and helps decrease flaking by moisturizing it well.
The color itself looks dull in the tube. However on your lips, it is a nice natural rosy color I like- not too overdone but yet not too dull. There's no shimmer particles and leaves your lips with a nice sheen. It rubs off easily and wears off in 2-3 hours. It does leave a tiny bit of stain on you lips after it wears off.
While I was doing this review, I just realized that it doesn't have SPF. Since I don't put sunblock on my lips, it one of the most places that I neglect sunblock and it would have been nice if they had included some form of sunblock. The lack of SPF is nothing major and does not deduct any points from my review since it does such a great job moisturizing my lips and gives face some color. In the winter, I like to layer it with EOS lip balm in lemon which contains SPF and is colorless to give it even more moisture and the needed SPF.
If you need a tinted lip, this is the one to get and I highly recommend it.
