I think it's been well-documented on this blog that I'm a bit of a lip balm freak. I stash pots and tubes in my purse, in my car, in my desk. Every time a new product comes out, I hold out hope that this time my quest for the perfect consistency (not too gooey) and flavor (not medicinal) will be over.

Thanks to the worker bees at Burt's Bees, I think I've finally found The One.

Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter meets all of my criteria for the perfect lip balm.

1) Consistency: This stuff glides on so smoothly. It's ultra moisturizing, yet it's not oily, greasy or waxy.

2) Scent/flavor: The key ingredient, mango butter, makes this a tropical treat, with a scent reminiscent of a sweet mango daiquiri.

3) Price: At under $5, I can easily afford to keep a tube in all of my aforementioned stash spots.
