I have very sensitive lips prone to getting painfully dry, peeling, chapping, and, as a result, extreme soreness, especially in winter. I've been looking for an all-natural organic lip balm for a very long time, and I think I've finally found it. I really like Sierra Bees lip balms. The best thing about them is that they don't contain any synthetic, artificial, or dangerous ingredients, which is hard to find these days. They’re also gluten free, which is especially important for people suffering from gluten intolerance and celiac disease, sustainable, which means the company cares about nature and tries not to disturb its delicate balance, compact and easy to carry around, you don’t have to worry about accidentally swallowing any dangerous carcinogenic ingredients, and you can try them for free! This organic mint lip balm contains peppermint and spearmint essential oils known for their powerful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral properties and capable of fighting off different types of infections, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and boosting the immune system. While it’s great for mint lovers, it won't be suitable for people allergic to mint and menthol and suffering from acid reflux, heartburn, and other gastroesophageal conditions, because it can aggravate them and cause discomfort. Personally, I like this lip balm, but for some it might just be too strong and cause a burning sensation. The other ingredients are great as always. Olive oil is known for its antioxidant properties and for deeply moisturizing, nourishing, regenerating, and softening the delicate skin of the lips, beeswax forms a protective barrier on their surface while still allowing the skin to breathe, sunflower seed oil is a noncomedogenic oil gently healing, moisturizing, and protecting your lips against irritation and infection, vitamin E (another great thing about Sierra Bees lip balms is that it’s non-GMO and derived from sunflower seed oil) is a powerful antioxidant vital to skin health, as well as a natural preservative. I’ve been using this lip balm for a while, and I’m already impressed by the results. The condition of my lips has noticeably improved: they are no longer painfully dry, chapped, and peeling – they are smooth, soft, and healthy instead.

This has a decent mint smell, it tastes a bit like regular gum does. Do not use this if you are going to eat something, the mint flavor mixes with the taste of the food and it does not taste any good. So I can only use this when I do not plan to eat something, and it's not always easy to remember. It provides decent moisture so I have nothing negative to say about that.

Lo pedí por su fama pero no es ultra hidratante ni rescata los labios escamados, simplemente una crema de labios, eso si, deja frescor a menta. a suiza llego en 2 semanas exactas el pedido

Not sure why I even tried this, because I hate mint lip balm. I gave it a try, and of course, mint lip balm is mint lip balm. It feels like it's stinging your lips, and making them even more chapped. So I tossed it away instantly. The brand is good though, so I will just continue to use another flavour.

It tingles on my lips and I don't really like the feeling, so I avoid using this one. Prefer the pomegranite.
