Okay, it may be getting quite chilly right now, but Burt's Bees has decided to inject a little bit of Summer into their 100% natural lip products range, with some new, tropical inspired lip shimmers and a lip balm.
These new goodies make me think about beaches and sunshine!
It doesn't feel heavy or greasy on the lips, and can easily be reapplied often. And it makes lips hydrated and soft, with its hydrating formula containing a heady mix of Coconut Oil, Pear Extract, and Shea Butter. It smells divine, and almost edible - Love!
If you like coconut scents, you'll love this ^^
Just try not to eat it - it smells that good.
They're great for a soft sweep of colour - very hydrating and slick formula, that smells of peppermint, and gives lips a bit of a tingle when applied. Unlike other lip butters/glosses, these shimmers nourish with Vitamin E, Fruit Oils, Sunflower Oil, and Coconut Oil~

I really like Apricot, which is aptly named with its orange-peachy shade. Very Summer appropriate ^^
Grapefruit is not really my colour - it's a bit more shimmery and pearlescent, which doesn't tend to flatter my complexion much. For pigmented lips it may look a bit too pearlescent or close to sickly - especially on more yellow skin tones. It would look nice on fair and cool toned complexions I think!
If you want to treat your lips to a Tropical Vacation, definitely check these out - they should have hit the shelves by now ^^
Random question - Tropical Vacation versus Winter Escape, what's your ideal holiday? ^^
Thanks for reading!
