Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Mask Review

On one of our many trips to Target Missy and I found this gem.  I have to say I was REALLY excited about this as I am an avid user of Burt’s Bees Chapstick! Read below for our review of Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Mask.

First Impressions

Ruby – YAAY! Burt’s Bees!

Missy – Hmm, lip mask. Sounds kinda strange to me, but I am game for anything that will break my poor dry lips out of this winter cracking and peeling. I also love anything almond, which appears to be a key ingredient in this mask.

Application

Ruby – As I pulled it out of the package, I giggled. The paper lip mask is a cartoon like cut out of lips! It was hard to make the mask stay in place on my lips, but by putting it in between my lips a little bit it stayed okay for the short 5 minutes the directions call for. After application, I do feel like I just rubbed my fingers on a New York pizza and have grease all over my fingers. I had to wash my hands before I could touch anything.

Missy – Ok, this is literally a paper mask like you would put on your face, but lip shape (and obviously, sized.) I had a hard time figuring out how to get the most coverage on my lips, I ended up pursing my lips and holding the mask in place. It was not the easiest to keep it in place like this for 5 minutes.  Pulling this out of the package left my fingers super oily, as did removing the mask.

Wait Time

Ruby – It was rather annoying to not be able to talk for 5 minutes with 2 puppers and a 2-year-old running around. If I spoke the mask moved around and I had to reapply it and then rewash my hands. If I was home by myself it would have been no big deal to sit with it on my lips.

Missy – The 5 minute wait was not too bad, even though it was hard to keep in place. We communicated mostly through grunts for 5 minutes. Now, if only they made a version for a 2 year old, I may remember what silence sounds like … but, I digress …

Removal

Ruby – It is a paper mask, so removal was really easy and not super exciting.

Missy – Easy, just pull off and throw away. Although be prepared to wash your hands any time you touch this mask or its packaging.

Results

Ruby – I can feel a difference in my lips. They are softer and…dare I say it…kissable?

Missy – My lips are defiantly softer, which was much needed. Easily viable results.

Conclusions

Ruby – I am a fan of this. I would use it again. The only real negative is the oily feeling after application, but is did wash off easily.

Missy – The results make this product worth the mess and difficulty keeping it on.  I think if I could buy this in just an oil form that I could massage on my lips, I would use it all the time. The somewhat inconvenient application will keep it as a once and awhile treat for me.
