People are putting Burt’s Bees lip balm on their eyelids — and no, you shouldn’t try this at home.
It’s normal for young people to experiment, but sometimes things can get a bit goofy. People believe rubbing Burt’s Bees lip balm on their eyelids before a night out will give them a euphoric, tingling sensation. However, experts say otherwise.
TikTokers dubbed this trend “beezin.'”
