Burt’s Bees Mango and Acai Lip Balm


My mom and I were talking this past weekend about Burt’s Bees lip balm (if there is a gene for addiction to skin care products, I definitely inherited it from her), and their new Nourishing Lip Balm with mango butter and Rejuvenating Lip Balm with acai ¬†berry, both $3. I love Burt’s Bees products in general, but I find the texture of some of their lip balms to be a bit too waxy. The mango and acai berry lip balms do a better job of really soaking into my lips and leave them feeling moisturized for a remarkably long time. Both lip balms are 100% natural, and have a fresh, tropical scent without being overly sweet. Is one better than the other? I like the acai berry for daily use, as it is packed with vitamins and antioxidants. The mango rolls on a little thicker and is extra soft, so I turn to it when my lips are dry or cracked (so painful). Or, you could whip up a mango-acai berry smoothie for your lips with a layer of each. Yum!

What products do you apply to your lips before bed? I am looking for the best products that nourish while I sleep!
