Sure, we all love the indulgence of a 10-step skincare routine or a day-long trip to the spa, but sometimes, the simplest self-care treats can really make your heart sing. Enter: Burt’s Bees’ 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm, the under-$4 beauty product that makes the absolute best stocking stuffer or small holiday gift — and comes with a celebrity backing, too.

During a November 2020 interview with Byrdie, actress Lily Collins named Burt’s Bees’ Lip Balm as one of her five favorite products of the moment, citing its amazing hydration benefits and the tingling, soothing sensation of the original peppermint option. “I’m constantly putting this on all day,” she said in the video.

She’s not the only celebrity fan, either. Back in 2019, Blake Lively shared a photo of her favorite beauty products to her Instagram stories, and nestled among high-end heavy hitters like Dior, Armani, and La Mer was a tube of Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, proof that the drugstore favorite can hang with the big boys. Other Hollywood stars who have shared their love for Burt’s Bees in the past include Selena Gomez, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Stranger Things’ Noah Schnapp, and Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney. Walmart customers also love how the product applies smoothly, doesn’t pill or bleed with lipstick, and doesn’t smell artificial. Simply put: So many people (celebrities and regular folk alike) rely on Burt’s Bees lip balms.

The moisturizing lip treatment comes in a variety of tints and scents, from super juicy strawberry to relaxing lavender. Each tube is formulated with natural fruit and floral extracts mixed with beeswax to soften and hydrate lips, keeping parched pouts from succumbing to harsh winter temperatures.

At only $4 (and under) apiece, the balms make the perfect budget-friendly stocking stuffer. And if you want to up the ante and totally replenish someone’s supply, certain flavors come in 4-packs for about $10, making them even more affordable at just above $2 per tube.

Whether you’re getting it for yourself or someone on your holiday shopping list, anyone would appreciate finding this tried-and-true skincare staple in their stocking.
