I'm suprised there aren't any other reviews for this product yet!

while living in Indiana and Kentucky my lips seemed to be dry ALL the time. After moving to Texas they definately got better, but I could still use some moisture.

My all-time HG lip treatment/gloss is Carmex. Cheap, works great, and doesnt leave a white line of product where my lips meet. Amazingly enough, i like this even better!

While i got the Avocado and Lavender, there are all different kinds of "flavors"/ formulas. This one happens to be vegan, and there are other vegan options as well. There is also the option of unflavored and flavored (for this one, the "flavors" are the Bulgarian Lavender and Ylang Ylang essential oils).

Price is great! only $3.25, for quite a lot!

from their website:
"A highly therapeutic exotic oil and butter, avocado is rich in vitamins A, D, and E. It is very penetrating and imparts valuable nutrients to the skin while it softens, increases elasticity, moisturizes and leaves no greasy residue. It is also used to treat sun damaged skin that is dehydrated and under nourished.

Ingredients: Avocado Butter; Avocado Oil; Coconut Oil; Sunflower Oil; Castor Oil; Jojoba Wax." <--- how awesome is THAT?!?!

This doesnt feel greasy or sticky on my lips, and adds a LOT of moisture. The flavors/scents are subtle, not anything that is overwhelming. and its really more of a scent, as i haven't noticed a taste. The color is clear, and its not too glossy, so a guy could wear it too and not look like he's wearin lipgloss.

i will rebuy this again and again, however, i WILL try the other formulas too, just in case i may find one thats even BETTER! :)

UPDATE 11/5/11:
figured i'd give an update, and just let you guys know that ths was NOT just a fling-- i'm still lovin this stuff. and i'm not even 1/2 way through it, maybe just 1/4 way through it, used daily. i like to apply it at LEAST every night. its still not creasing up along where my lips meet and its not seperating in the pot or anything.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

UPDATE 02/20/12:
i'mo not a fan of the tub/ pot, b/c i have to put my finger in and get it all messy every time. but i like the formula enough that i left the rating at 5 lippies.
