In the Muse’s Purse: Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

The Muse likes the bees.

She thinks their kinda cute with there fuzzy little butts and yellow and black coat. Be serious…when you see one of those big old yellow bumble bees floating around a flower dontcha just want to pet him? He’s all fuzzy and hairy and cutes! But of course chances are he’ll stick you with his stinger given half the chance so best not go around petting bees.

You know you can love the bees just for the simple fact that they make beeswax for us! Beeswax is a natural wax made by those fuzzy little bees in the cell walls of the honeycombs. This natural emulsifier is used in cosmetics…and happens to be a main ingredient for one of the items in The Muse’s Purse, Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm!

The Muse appears to be partial to lip balms in a tin even though she’s terribly anal about germs and bacteria but she can’t resist the cute yellow tin of Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm that she totes around with her daily (no worries it comes in a tube too if you prefer!).

This natural lip balm moisturizes my lips and keeps them from drying out with a cool minty taste and plenty of emollient ingredients like lanolin, coconut oil, and sunflower oil all of which seal in hydration thanks to those bees that made the beeswax base! Thanks guys I knew you were around for a good reason, buzz buzz!

$3 USD can’t break your bank…The Muse highly suggest nabbing one to keep the even chapped lips at bay.

One of my very fav balms!

    I love this balm with all my heeeart.
    Bought it on my last trip to NYC and loved it from the very first moment. It moisturizes my lips, leaving that soft popping feeling of peppermint…
    what will I do when I run out of it. Burt’s Bees doesn’t ship to Italy, d’oh! I just adore this brand. I’m a honey addicted so it’s not surprising. <3
