Burt's Bees VS Chap Ice Beeswax Lip Balm!

Hello po! Frens, I remember a few years ago during a cold December month, I had terrible chapping on my lips. To remedy this, I tried so many kinds of lip balms - from those commercialized mainstream ones to organic newbies, but nothing seemed to work.

I really wondered what caused this since my lips were normally supple and not dry before. Over time, my lips improved but the edge around it was still peeling and raw. I got scared that it might darken leaving me looking like I had black lipliner on.

Thankfully, I came across Burt's Bees beeswax lip balm. It healed my sore, dry lips! Sure it was more expensive than other brands, but it was worth it. I was hiyang to it. My aunt, not so much, she said that she was like sensitive to it. As for me, I loved it!

I use lip balms every night before going to bed to keep my lips pinkish and prevent them from drying out.

Then I encountered another beeswax balm, Oralabs Chap Ice beeswax lip balm and decided to buy it too!

Let's have a comparison between these 2 lip balms, Burt's Bees VS OraLabs Chap Ice!!!

Manufactured in USA for both.

Price wise: Chap Ice, at about Php 70 (comes in a pack of 2's so bale 35 each) wins, as compared to Burt's Bees tag at around Php 225. Both are 4.25 grams.

Efficacy: Chap Ice also moisturized my lips and kept it supple. However, I was not able to put it in a REAL test the way I had experienced with Burt's Bees.

Feel, scent, and color: Both are okay on the lips, not sticky, but Burt's Bees smells more minty. Burt's Bees is more translucent while Chap Ice is whiter.

Ingredients: There are similar ingredients but they are not exactly the same formulation.

100% Natural: Yes for Burt's Bees. Chap Ice has BHT.

So who emerges the winner?
For me, considering their respective qualities, I would choose Burt's Bees! Thanks for reading! :)


  1. Normal na sakin at sa anak ko ang chapped lips during summer and December to January. Yun Burts's Bees ang ipinagamit ko sa anak ko (napanalunan lang sa giveaway 😄) at very effective talaga sa kanya. Nun naubos yun Nivea Med yun ginamit nya. I'm currenty using HHN but i still want to try other brands.

    1. Hi +Jhake O. thanks for dropping by the blog! Ang hassle talaga ng chapped lips no kasi sensitive yung lip area e. Na try ko na din yung binanggit mo Nivea,isa sa mga unang lip balm ko matagal na ang Nivea, daming variety din yan gusto ko yung parang basic light blue ata ung container at mabango, then Human Nature din na try ko din nag dealer pa ko nun before. Yung Burt's Bees namimigay sila ng libre dati sa beauty bar i-trade mo yung old lip balm mo (matagal na yun hindi pa ata ako nagba blog), tapos nung nag opening sila sa Estancia. Abangers lang tayo uli hehe:)
