I have been using Burt’s Bees Natural Lip Balm since high school. The flavors I use have changed over the years, but it has always been mostly the same.
I was not sure I would like Arbonne’s Liquid Sunshine Lip Balm but I gave it a shot. And I was impressed.
Burts Bees- $3.50
Experience: Smooth going on. Sticky on lips. Residue disappeared about 45 minutes later. Lips felt dry, and were a little rough to the touch especially around the edges. Initial smell and taste disappeared after initial application.
Perks: Ability to choose different tints and flavors. Low price. Can buy at most convenience stores.
Downside: Sticky. Dry lips. I felt like if I didn’t have it in my pocket I would be dissatisfied because I would feel like I had to reapply it multiple times for it to be effective in the long term.
Arbonne – $12.00 ($7.50 with consultant discount)
Experience: Smooth going on. Silky smooth on my lips. No residue, left lips feeling smooth to the touch. Coconut aftertaste for up to four hours. Lips did not feel dry or cracked later in the day.
Perks: Sunscreen protection.
Downside: Only one flavor and no tints. Little pricier, need to preplan to order with a bigger order otherwise shipping is horrendous.
