Earlier this week, it was revealed that a bottle of Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater was selling every 20 second around the world.
But there’s one product that has taken it a step further with a sale recorded every one second globally – and it will set you back a mere $7.
The must-have item? A tube of the Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm.
The simple yet much loved product is being sold more than 600,000 times per week, with thousands praising the 100 per cent natural balm on social media.

So what makes it so special?
The 4.25 gram tube contains beeswax, a known natural skin conditioner, and a hint of peppermint oil and Vitamin E.
It has no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS and the company claims the balm revitalises and hydrates the lips yet leaves a matte finish for those who prefer a less glossy look.
The balm also comes in a range of different flavours including cucumber and mint, wild cherry and mango.

‘This is my favourite lip balm, and I love it and all the other Burt’s Bees lip balms. The scent is not too overpowering and does not linger on the lips for long. I love that it feels very comfortable on the lips, and does not feel too oily or sticky, while being moisturising at the same time,’ one customer wrote.
‘My lips live for this lip balm. I’ve been using for almost eight years now and I refuse to go back to the previous chapped-lip days of using sub-par balms,’ another said.
Despite the hype, not everyone is convinced.
‘It was clear and colourless, which I liked, but I really didn’t like the texture – it was thick and pasty, very hard to spread over my lips. It didn’t seem to last for very long; I had to reapply this several times. I didn’t like the taste either, very unpleasant,’ one customer wrote.

‘Of all the lipbalms I own this is the last one I reach for. I found that the beeswax made the lipbalm quite hard and therefore difficult to spread on the lips,’ another added.
The other product of the year so far, the $9 Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater, has had similarly mixed reviews.
The budget-friendly prepping spray has been dubbed a ‘miracle worker’ by thousands, with the likes of Kylie Jenner and top beauty YouTuber Nikkie Tutorials endorsing it publicly.
Global beauty hub Mecca recently revealed their product that sells every 20 seconds around the world
There product is the $9 Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater
According to the Mecca site, the company sells 6,000 bottles of the spray per month and staff describe it as ‘super-charged hydration in a bottle’.
‘Just a few spritzes of this all over your face and you can say hello to that juicy glow you lost over the course of the day,’ the site reads.
‘Think of it as a big glass of water for your skin – a pleasantly-scented, hard-working glass of water.’
Nikkie Tutorials, a leading beauty YouTuber, regularly uses the spray before doing her make up
Yana Irbe, a beauty YouTuber also reviewed the spray
The product has been touted as ‘the ultimate pick me up’ and is made with ‘fragrant herbal extracts’ and rosewater- ideal for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin.
People use the spray in combination with their day and night creams for a boost of hydration or use it to set make up.
Some even use it to spray on dry hair throughout the day.

‘I bought this around October last year and my skin has changed for the better! I have hardly any breakouts anymore when I used to have so many,’ one woman wrote.
‘I love using it after I’ve done my makeup base to soak up any excess powder, to make me feel less dry and give me a healthy glow. I use this one when it’s not as hot weather, and the Green Tea one during warmer weather as I find it’s more cooling,’ another wrote.
While the majority adore the product, others have been less impressed – especially after hearing the hype.
‘All my friends were using it so I decided to try it out, however after using it it made me break out heavily. I stopped using it and my skin went back to normal,’ one customer wrote.
‘Bought this about three weeks ago and have experienced horribly clogged pores and breakouts since which is never usually an issue for me. It does smell amazing, so have been using it as a body moisturiser instead. Never again on my face though,’ another wrote.
