Well what do we have here? A new holiday lip balm from Burt's Bees already landing in stores? This makes me wonder if Burt's Bees is going to bring back their limited edition Pumpkin Spice lip balm again this year? And will ChapStick bring back their Pumpkin Pie lip balm again this year? (You can see my review/comparison of those two lip balms from last year HERE.) Have any of you seen either of those balms in stores lately?
But back to this new holiday balm! Many thanks to my pal @tinybubblesfloating on Instagram for this sighting. She found this display at her local Rite Aid this week and kindly shared this pic:

@tinybubblesfloating mentioned that she wasn't wowed by this one, since she said it had sort of a fake chocolate scent to it. If you caught my review of the Burt's Bees Pumpkin Spice lip balm from last year (see link above), then you know that I much prefered ChapStick's Pumpkin Pie balm, on every level. So I guess I'm not going to get my hopes up about this Mint Cocoa one, but I will certainly purchase and review when I find it. Because you know me and LE lip balms. I have a sickness and the only cure is more
cowbell lip balm! (If you're too young to know that reference, you owe it to yourself to search "SNL More Cowbell Skit" on YouTube. I've seen it a million times and it still kills me.)
Thanks again, @tinybubblesfloating, for the great sighting and pic!
