Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb Review (My Lip Balm)

Burt's Bees Lip balm

100% natural

I've said back in my old posts about my longing for lip balm. I've been suffering from daily chapped lips even with enough consumption of water. During the days that I am too busy and unintentionaly missed the minimum required for hydration, the crack lips show instantly that sometimes followed by uncomfortable bleeding. With dead skin cells on lips, it will not provide a good canvas for lipstick application.

Instead of buying a lip balm in the nearest store, I kept myself from spending too much of “wants”. Besides the Sample Room is enough as a treat for myself. I just hope that the right product will get in stock soon. I remember I've read somewhere about being a public servant “Live with your means!” Not sure if that's mandatory but it sucks right? :D I'm not even buying dresses for half a year or more than that. Kuripot lang. When will I get rich ba? I've been thinking of many way even made initial steps yet getting into that stable financial status is really hard. Age expires soon while dreams waits to be fulfilled. How fulfilling could it be to make our family happy, pamper them with the things money can buy and have them tour in best places in our country or around the world while they still have the energy?

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb Review (My Lip Balm)

Going back to lip balms, the moisturizing claims of my current lipsticks doesn't help prevent the flaky dry skin of my lips. I am glad when SR restocked lip balms and finally was able to grab one of them. I was torn between the fig and rhubarb shade. I didn't took all the left shade because what will I do with too much lip balms?


Castor seed oil, sunflower seed oil, beeswax, euphorbia cerifera was, peppermint oil, lanolin, cocoa seed butter, copernicia cerifera wax, shea butter, strawberry seed oil, apricot kernel oil, black currant seed oil, rosemary leaf extract, elderberry seed oil, tocopherol, canola oil, soybean oil. +-: mica, iron oxides, carmine, alumina, titanium oxide

The net weight of the lip shimmer is 2.6 grams and costs around P395.00. Despite being small in size, it has the best organic ingredients for a lip product. No wonder that I felt its moisturizing power within my first use. Even after the color has gone, it can leave a softness that will last throughout the day. No more chappy lips since then. The product is worth trying!

Issue with Packaging

I was surprised to see how small the tube is. The Burt's Bees lip shimmer is still reasonable priced considering how organic it is. The balm can get messy with the cap and you cannot push the product back when you start to twist it.


Perhaps you need to make your lips completely dry as it sometimes doesn't set well in the lips. You can blot or pat it to remove the excess moisture and unwanted glossy look. There is slight uneven distribution of color due to the state of the lips or the humidity/temperature. I don't have problems with night application.

Other observations:

- 3 hours color lasting power
- 8 hours of moisturized lips
- Doesn't leave a tint
- There is instant temporary coolness
- Smells minty like the juicy fruit bubble gum (that sometimes makes me hungry).


  1. sikat talaga lip balm na yan. many good reviews. i hope to have one soon before i turn another year older.

    1. Ay talaga? :D No wonder. It's very nice to use and made me more interested in their brand.

  2. Oh you got a hold of the lip balms! I was trying to get a couple but the checkout just wouldn't let me until my slot expired. It's nice to know that it has cooling effects and doesn't leave a tint. Now if only they were to restock these again haha =)

    1. Hala.. maybe this is the one in your SR cart. XD the last two. I wish for more Burt's bees product. :D

  3. I also have this in the same shade and I absolutely love it! but I actually found a really good alternative to this. it is the Alba Botanica Terra Tints which only cost 159pesos! at healthy options. It has the same minty feeling, the formulation is slightly the same but Terra tints feels a little bit thinner compared to this.
