I’m very loyal to my Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm (review here) and there haven’t been many that have lived up to the magic pot. However I’m always keen to try new balms and see if it does.
I came across the Bee Good brand via Sarah’s blog, Temporary Secretary. This intrigued me into looking into the brand and I really loved their philosophy. Bee Good is a British brand who does not test on animals and harness honey from British bees. Bonus point to them, there is no mineral oil in their products! Hurrah!
Bee Good Vanilla & Honey Lip Balm*, £4.75 is a rich, replenishing lip balm that promises to intensively condition and soothe dry lips. It has quite a gel like texture that turns softer when applied to the lips. I’d say it has quite a glossy finish. It smells incredible! If you’re a vanilla fragrance fan, you’ll love this!
In terms of replenishing my lips, I found that it was okay for day to day use. The tube is handy for travelling. The applicator ensures hygiene as you’re not dipping your fingers in a tub when you’re out and about. However, I found that it didn’t help much with dry lips. I still had to use my Nuxe lip balm at night, as this simply didn’t do the same job. It’s light and moisturising enough for the day time and I’ve been carrying it round in my pocket this summer. I’ve also used this as a clear gloss on top of drying lipsticks!
I thought that the packaging was very eye-catching and unique. Straightaway, you’d know it was a Bee Good product. I’ve enjoyed using this as the sweet, vanilla fragrance lingers and it’s light on your lips so you don’t feel like you have a thick, lip balm on in the heat of summer.
If you’re looking for something affordable and minimal for the summer, this needs to be in your handbag. I really want to try out more Bee Good products, as I their brand philosophy have really enticed me.
