Just a few days after using it, I noticed that it wasn't really keeping my lips "shiny." In fact, it was making them more dry and even quasi-peeling in the hot weather! Here are the key features that I noticed while using this lip gloss:
Product Name: Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Shine in Wink (030)
Price: I paid $7.99.
Color: Light pink, but almost invisible when you put it on your lips.
Taste: Reminded me of the liquid amoxicillin I used to take when I had ear infections as a kid.
Texture: Sticky/gooey/pasty. Seeps into your lips within 10 minutes, so you don't feel like you even have anything on, but for the first few minutes -- even if you smooth it out right, it still feels like unequal layers of oily goo.
Ingredients: ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, oleic/linoleic/linolenic polyglycerides, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, lanolin, silica, cera alba (beeswax, cire d’abeille), acacia decurrens/jojoba/sunflower seed cera (wax, cire) polyglyceryl-3 esters, aroma (flavor)*, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, hydrogenated apricot kernel oil, hydrogenated apricot oil unsaponifiables, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil unsaponifiables, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, tocopherol, ammonium glycyrrhizate, glycine soja (soybean) oil, alumina., +/- (may contain): CI 75470 (carmine), CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (iron oxides), CI 77891 (titanium dioxide). *natural flavor
Recommended: Don't bother.
