Life: A Boring Tale.


I decided to take a picture of some of my favourite things and interests as an introduction to me. Everything you see above is like an escape to me. I love getting lost in stuff. Make up, clothes and reading. They're all pretty much like hobbies to me. That sounds a little sad really haha but once i find things i love they become my favourite things and what i pretty much immerse myself in.

Burt's Bees Lip Balm

I really like Burt's Bees Lip Balm and recently added to my small collection so decided to create a post talking about my favourite ones. Burt's Bees have quite a substantial collection of lip balms, many of these ranging from tinted to your basic balms. All of the balms are made with 100% natural ingredients which is another added bonus

The above lip balm was the first from Burt's Bees that i tried, and i was not disappointed. I really like the slight tint it gives your lips. It works great as a little pick-me-up and adds a little colour to your face.

I find this balm to be quite matte. The colour is really pretty and isn't too intense straight away, starting at a sheer tint that can be built up for more of a solid colour.

This balm is a little different from the other balms from Burt's Bees. I find the texture of this one to be a little bit more like a lipstick. It's quite shimmery and i also really like the colour of this one too.  One of the ingredients in this balm is peppermint oil, and this makes this balm a real winner for me. I really like minty balms as i feel they are quite refreshing and can also help to perk you up a little during the day.

So this balm is the original Burt's Bees balm. It has no added tint unlike the others, however, that does not mean it is not just as nice as the others! This balm also contains peppermint oil which i really like about it as it's really refreshing. As i find with all Burt's Bees lip balms, this is very moisturising on the lips, due to their main ingredient, beeswax which is known for it's moisturising and healing properties for the skin. It's also quite light and doesn't feel heavy or sticky at all.

If you haven't tried Burt's Bees lip balms before, i highly recommend that you try them! They have many variations of colours and types of balm which is great because there is always something to suit everyone.
