Beekeeper's Blend: Bee Clear


I found out about Beekeeper's Blend in one of my favorite papers, The Praire Star, out of Great Falls Montana. Okay, maybe I'm not a subscriber to The Praire Star, but I subscribe wholeheartedly to the state of Montana. I LOVE MONTANA.

Anyway, Beekeeper's Blend is only sold in Montana (sigh) and Wyoming (a state that I have a crush on, yet haven't visited). This stuff is so underground that I can't even post a picture of it.

Buck up cowboys:

Price: I actually don't know. I'm going to say under $5, but that's just a gut feeling.

Appearance: This is my first foray into the oblong tube category, yet the other half of Chaptastic has reviewed this shape - check the link for photo. It's odd. I like it because it's interesting, yet I feel as if the ends of the stick will never get used, unless I apply in an unnatural manner. And that will take a huge amount of extra effort, I may have to twist my wrist. Jeez.

Glide: Good glide - but, the application method that I generally use has to be altered, which slightly effects the glide.

Flavor/ Smell: The Bee Clear, which I figured was scentless and flavorless does have a slight peppermint scent and taste, but it's nice and mellow. Just like Montana. The other flavor I tested, Bee Calm has a wonderful lavender scent. A good bedtime balm.

Lasting Power: Doesn't last long, constant application required which can be rather drying.

Product Plusses: Made in Montana, uses unique ingredients like Red Raspberry Seed Oil, honey from local keepers of the bees, and other natural products.

Beekeeper's Blend also makes a Huckleberry Balm called Bee My Huckleberry. Have you ever eaten a huckleberry? It's delightful. Beekeeper's Blend is delightful. If you see it around, grab some. Or email them (support@beekeepersblend.com) and tell them you saw our review and that you need some!

Another great lip balm made of honey and beeswax is Savannah Bee Company's Lip Balms - it comes in a bunch of gret flavors. I pick mine up at Amazon.com - http://www.amazon.com/Savannah-Bee-Company-Natural-BLACKBERRY/dp/B000GFZVKI/sr=1-5/qid=1167288934/ref=sr_1_5/002-1723501-0128010?ie=UTF8&s=hpc
