"Beezin" trend has teens using Burt's Bees Wax lip balm on eyelids to enhance drug, alcohol effects - WXYZ.com

I don't want people to think I have forgotten about my promise to continue looking into this supposedly new drug craze among teens in this country, it turns out however it's not as new as I thought it was, it seems you can find references to Beezin as far back as 2010 and it's just now starting to catch the attention of physicians, law enforcement, and parents.



Not only is this a possible sign to watch out for if your kids are using drugs or alcohol there can be other medical problems induced by using Burts Bees Lip Balm on your eyelids, it also can cause serious infections of the eyes and common sense tells you if you want to look at the worse possible out come, untreated infections of the eyes can lead to blindness.



Doctors are also saying that even if you don't see your loved one or friend suddenly using this lip balm more often or its something you have never seen them use, watch for a sudden increase of pink eye or other eye infections because this to can be an indication of someone using this stuff on their eyes to increase there "buzz" from drugs or alcohol.
