Bee Good Great British Lip Balm Competition

Wow! We've been amazed and inspired by the many entries we received for our Great British Lip Balm competition in partnership with Waitrose.

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to enter. From the weird and wacky to the traditional; floral, fruity, sweet and citrus; we must have seen most conceivable lip balm flavour combinations in one form or another! We've had great fun here at the Bee Good hive, sifting through the entries and short-listing our five semi-finalists; it certainly was no easy task, although it made our Monday morning far more exciting than usual, and we did manage to agree in the end!

So we're very pleased to announce the five semi-finalists who (in no particular order) are:

  1. Lime Blossom & Honey - Aarti Jonas 
  2. Chamomile & Honey - Lottie Pearce
  3. Apple Crumble - Serena Ozgowicz 
  4. White Chocolate & Raspberry - Joseph Harwood
  5. Rose & Honey - Bettina Hunt 

A huge congratulations to our semi-finalists who are all invited to Waitrose head office on 8th May to present their ideas to the Waitrose beauty buying and PR teams, plus Simon, Rebecca and Toni from Bee Good. We're very excited about meeting our semi-finalists and trying some very special initial lab samples of their chosen flavours!

But the final decision won't be down to us or Waitrose, it will be down to YOU! Following the judging day on 8th May, we'll be sharing the three final flavours and asking you to vote for your favourite. The flavour with the most votes will win and will be launched exclusively in 100 Waitrose stores and here at So watch this space for the next stage of our search for the next Great British Lip Balm!

Meantime, if you're a fan of our Vanilla & Honey Lip Balm, make sure you always have one to hand (in the car, in the office desk, on the bedside table) by treating yourself to our triple pack and saving £3.75!
