(KTVI)– Does your teen’s eyes hurt and look a little swollen?

It may not be pink eye but a bizarre viral trend called ‘Beezin.’ It involves applying a light layer of Burt’s Bees Natural Lip Balm on your eyelids.

Those who are into ‘Beezin’ say it adds the experience of being drunk or high.

Others say it helps to keep them alert.

But doctors say it’s just the peppermint oil causing the sensation.

And because Burt’s Bees Lip Balm is all natural it’s basically harmless, but it can cause pink eye-like symptoms.
