Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub Review & Swatches

Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub is a new exfoliating lip scrub that contains honey crystals to smooth and soften dry, tired lips. They also released a Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Overnight Intensive Lip Treatment along with this lip scrub if you like to treat lips after scrubbing!

I’ve come to the conclusion that the pots of lip scrub I have laying around rivals that of the amount of lip balms I have. That means I have quite a few. I find them very convenient to have in my makeup bag and they are very much apart of my nightly routine. I know that bit about the makeup bag probably made you cringe since many scrubs are in a pot and using them on the go isn’t exactly hygienic. But I have drier lips so I tend to pack one with me and use them before reapplying lipstick or gloss. It is doable if you’re a germ-a-phobe like me. Simply pack up a tiny spatula (I buy them in bulk from E-bay) and a clean Q-tip with your lip scrub. Use the spatula to scoop a little of the scrub out, apply it on the Q-Tip, and use the Q-Tip to gently work the scrub into your lips and tissue off when you’re done. Your hands aren’t touching anything and you’re good to scrub on the go 🙂

One of my latest loves was the Chapstick Total Hydration Conditioning Lip Scrub which is a nice grainy scrub for super dry, flaky lips. Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub is far more gentle in comparison but just as effective.

Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub arrives in a 0.25 oz jar and will set you back around $9 bucks. If you’re counting pennies the Chapstick one is like $4 bucks and 0.27 oz in size. However, if you’re a stickler for ingredients the Burt’s Bees one is 100% Natural. By the way, I love the darling honeycomb lid! Too cute.

This is created with a vegetable oil base that contains other seed oils as well as honey and honey crystals. It doesn’t have a fragrance in the pot but it does have a delightful sugary honeycomb flavor that I found quite tasty. How is it we aren’t all sitting around eating pots of lip scrub!? They all taste so damn delicious.

The texture is thick but soft and melts on contact with lips with a lightly grainy texture that does a very good job buffing away drier skin. It leaves my lips quite smooth and soft. I tend to migrate towards grainier scrubs but although subtle in the grains department it still manages to buff away dryness very well. When used in conjunction with the Overnight Lip Treatment my lips felt very smooth and soft and ready for lipstick in the morning.

Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub is worth a look at. I dunno if you need to pay the full $9 price tag for it but if you catch it on sale it is worth picking up to get your dry, winter lips back in shape again.

Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub is available at ulta.com and target.com.

    The instructions say 2-3 times a week. I use the Chapstick version almost every night. I may be overdoing it, but my lips get very dry in the winter. They keep my office too warm and way too dry.

    • Isabella Muse

      I use mine quite often as well I really doubt you can over do it especially when lips are dry!

    • Amy

      That’s probably CYA. 😉
      A $9 lip scrub sounds good to me. I should be ashamed of the amount of money I am willing to pay for a good lip balm or scrub.

    I’ll be getting this and not just one! I have Chapsticks in my makeup shelves, in every coat, sweater, shirt pocket I own, everywhere I turn to especially in winter. I already love the lipsticks and crayons. I do find the lip balm to brake too easily when I’m out running they just fall off even being careful at home I like them but do prefer harder original Chapstick when on the go. Dropped a big chunk first time I took my Burt’s Bees lip balm for a run on the not so nice pavement. That wasn’t fun!Shiuld have seen my face. Buahhhh! Lol!

    I have not been able to find one single store in my area that carries ANY of their new line of cosmetics yet. Not Ulta, not drugstores, not Target — I mean nowhere.

    I picked this and the overnight intensive treatment balm up yesterday at Ulta based on your rec of the scrub. I haven’t used the scrub yet but the treatment is a winner for me. It moisturizes well and has the slip I love in a balm. It has a light minty scent and tingles on the lips which I actually liked. My lips were very soft this morning and it did heal my chapped lips slightly. Going to use it all week and see how well it heals.
