I have three of these #s 7, 3 and 8 and use one pretty much daily. The packaging is less elegant that Ilia's Lip Conditioners, but they are more moisturizing, portable and sheer - less lipstick-y. W3LL People is a small independent company with excellent customer service making clean products, very very rare in my experience. You can order samples of almost every product in the line for $1 - $2 (which come in handy for travel or when using a smaller handbag). The full sized versions are kind of expensive in my opinion, but I think they are worth it because they work well and last a long time.
In response to the previous review: Burt's Bee's is owned by Clorox, so that should sum up their contribution to the heath of our bodies and environment. Also, their ingredients are lackluster to say the least.
Sometimes you get what you pay for.
Such a great idea (if not original) yet so poorly executed, both in product & in packaging.
I have this in #3, described on the website as "Cherry." This is a completely overpriced version of Burts Bees tinted lip balm. Save your money & just get one of those in Rose, if you are interested in a more natural tinted lip product. Those have the added benefit of actually softening lips, whereas this one is so full of beeswax that it does nothing but sit on top of your lips. And the colour wears off faster than you can say "lip balm."
Or spend a few money $ and get an Ilia tinted lip conditioner. At least those feel comfortable, come in fab colors and have lovely packaging so the overall experience is much nicer.
This one a shocking waste of money, and had I not got mine at a steep discount, I would return it. I only gave it a 2 for the ingredients.
