Burt's Bees Giveaway!!

In celebration of BURT'S BEES 25th Anniversary, the good folks there are giving away 25,000 of their well-loved Beeswax Lip Balm.

So, you still have 24 days to get yours! Buzz here to try and win yours! Also, in honor of their anniversary, if you don't win one, for every $25 you spend, you'll receive a free Beeswax Lip Balm.

Now, since I've only just received it, I can't possibly review it for at least a week, probably more in order to see if it really lives up to its promise, but since we're coming into warmer weather, whi…
