Burt's Bees mango butter lip balm

I've been a fan of Burt's bees for a few years now and when I heard that they do a mango lip balm, I instantly wanted to try it. A few days after hearing about it, I received a trio gift set of their balms for my birthday and one of them happened to be the mango one! 

If you've used the original Burt's bees balm then you'll know they have the minty, tingly feeling to them when they're on your lips but this one doesn't at all, it's just a smooth, hydrating, clear lip balm which has a hint of mango to it. I personally would like the mango to be a bit stronger but if you're someone who doesn't like strong/overpowering scents then you will like this.

I was given this at the end of October and I'm already almost half way through it because I like it and have been using it so much!

Have you tried this lip balm?
Do you like Burt's Bees products?

US Haul.. Kind of.

I feel like calling this a 'US Haul' is cheating in a way because I haven't actually been to the US since last year. Instead, the boy went to Target for me with a list of things I gave him and then mailed them over to me.

A couple of these things are actually gifts for people (which is why there are so many lip balms). I actually asked him to pick up another Dream Bouncy Blush for me too but when I received it, it had been opened so I don't think I'm going to use it and for that reason, didn't include it in the picture. We can't get the twisty stick version of the cherry Carmex in the UK, so I asked him to get some of those for me and he told me that these only cost $1, that's around 62p!

Current beauty wants!

1. Soap and Glory - Scrub your nose in it 
2. L'Oreal - Mythic oil - I'm currently sitting here with a pure argan oil in my hair before I wash it but so far I haven't really seen too much improvement with it and have heard lots of good things about the Mythic oil, so I want to try that one next!
3. Models Own - Utopia
4. Essie - Eternal Optimist - I missed out on this when it was being sold for £1.99 on CheapSmells so I'm now trying to get my hands on it!
5. Thierry Mugler - Angel perfume I used the sample of Angel that was in this month's Glamour magazine and at first I didn't really like it but then I found myself constantly smelling my wrist and really liking the scent!

Have you tried any of these products?
