I love this stuff! I used to have a stockpile that I would stash everywhere around the house and in my purse. I do love grapefruit scented products. This has a very slippery, moisturizing texture that feels so good on my lips. It's not a long-lasting lip balm, but it hydrates well. Packaging is only ok - rolls away at bedside and hard to find by feel in my black hole of a purse. I've repurchased a few times and will again once I've worked through my stash.
I got this and it worked ok but I had to constantly reapply. It had a nice smell and the beeswax made what was in the tube last long so not that much actually got on my lips. And the packaging is AWFUL the tube had about a quarter of the tube left and I took off the cap and the base that the product sits on came off so I couldn't use what was left. Don't buy. It's cheap but it shows in packaging
I used to find this lip balm very thick and waxy but now, I find that it's a very light and delicate lip balm! It does a mediocre job of moisturizing my lips but nothing too impressive.l It smells delicious too (although I do prefer the tastes of Maybelline's Baby Lips). I wish it had longer staying power because it is very, very light. The packaging is adorable but for its price, I expected it to do more. Personally I feel that Baby Lips works the same way so I would actually invest in that since it is cheaper and tastier.
TASTE/SCENT: Personally I can't taste anything when I wear this lip balm. But the smell...oh my gosh. It smells exactly like Starburst, and I love it. I can smell this thing all day even if I don't use it.
FEEL: The balm is quite firm, but softer than the Peppermint lip balm. It feels nice going on.
MOISTURIZING ABILITIES: I honestly think this does nothing for my lips. I bought it on a day my lips were pretty dry and rough, and I wore this at night. I woke up in the morning to the same feel on my lips, if not slightly drier. I don't feel this has any moisturizing ability - at least on my lips.
VERDICT: If you have an extra $3 laying around and want a delicious smelling lip balm that won't help or hurt your lips, I would recommend this. If you're looking for crazy moisture, I would skip this lip balm and try an oil like Vitamin E or Coconut.
Simply Labello lip balms don't work for me. They moisturize only for a little while, and leave my lips feeling dry after twenty minutes. This, however, is fairly long-lasting and applies very easily (I know, it's lip-balm, how hard could it be? But some lip-balms get bent out of shape much too quickly and I hate having to follow the curve over my lips xD).
I must admit I was sort of adverse to the scent at first, and the taste is not for me, but after a while I found the scent to be extremely soothing and nice.
My lips are pampered with a healthy sheen and a nice, creamy feeling for a good half hour. After that, they feel soft and are less prone to cracking and tearing.
I'm a real lip-shredder, and this has worked wonderfully for me.
- Simple lip balm; definitely not meant to heal harsh irritated and severely cracked lips.
- One of the few lip products that don't cause allergic reactions on my lips.
- Definitely not super hydrating and moisturizing since reapplication is needed throughout the day.
- However, it does have a lovely grapefruit scent and goes on lightly. Like it's name, it's simply 'refreshing.'
When you first put this on, it's really smooth and nice and smells and tastes great, too. However, it after an hour, my lips are dry again. Reapplying isn't really a problem but I just wish it had a little more staying power. The original Chapsticks have more lasting power than this and I am currently loving the red velvet cupcake one. Although it smells a littllleee funky, it's really moisturizing and the smell grows on you.
Another mediocre lip balm. I need to just stick to eos and korres and stop trying new ones. This is not a terrible product. I love the smell and it moisturizes ok. Just the texture can be gritty. I have to reapply pretty often. Just not my fave lip balm.
you don't realize the quality of a chapstick unless you've been on accutane and tried them all. accutane has made my lips a nightmare. this was my saving grace. no other chapstick moisturized and actually lasted as long as this. the grapefruit flavour, i have to say, is the best out of all. the peppermint one sure feels nice but if you're looking for something of quality, this is the one to go with.
i was put off ever buying burts bees again after average results with their hand cream and terrible tingly lips with their peppermint lip balms
however, i am a sucker for anything grapefruit, so grabbed this. its is much more smooth and creamy in texture than the peppermint, which is just too stiff to apply properly, and the mint is seriously distracting
this however is the right texture and smells delish! still not super-moisturising though!
worth buying just to keep in your bag to sniff!
