Back to Basics with Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

burtsbees_replenishinglipbaAs we say hello to fall and cooler weather wind and dry air can take a toll on your lips. I have tried many lip balms, from $25 a stick at the department store to 99-cent versions from the drugstore. I had also used the Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm, but I found the peppermint oil a bit strong. So I thought I’d give their Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil a try. And boy I’m glad I did! I love this lip balm and I haven’t had chapped lips since using it. I love the light fruity taste and the notion of the pomegranate oil working its antioxidant magic to keep my lips smooth is a plus. There has been alot of buzz around pomegranate and its health benefits. The juice, extract and oil from the seed of the fruit, are rich in anti-oxidants that fight free radicals. Pomegranate oil contains punicic acid that is an Omega 5 conjugated fatty acid used to replenish moisture.

I am also a fan of Burt’s Bees because of their commitment to using all natural products. I use the baby shampoo and bath for my daughter because it does not contain sodium laureth sulfate or parabens. The company is also committed to reducing waste in packaging and it eliminated the shrink wrapping used to seal its lip balm products. One small change eliminates over 1800 miles of shrink wrap film that would have been sent to the landfill — enough to wrap the Statue of Liberty 100 times. Now that is something to smile about!

    I’ve been a Burt’s Bees fan for a long time. In fact I just purchased a bunch of their stuff for my new baby cute 😉 I’ve always loved their regular lip balm and don’t find the oil too string, but this seems even fruitier and smoother…I’ll check it out! Thanks!
