Just finished my first tube of this. Overall, it's a decent lip balm. However, Blitex (my HG at the moment), Dr. Bronner lip balm, and the Chapsticks Moisturizer are all more moisturizing for me.
And given its price, this isn't something I'll ever repurchase or recommend.
I went into Ulta the other day with super dry and sore lips. The associate recommended this to me, saying it is the best of the best. I have to agree it's pretty great. My lips starting healing up within just a couple of hours. I bought the shea butter and Vit E. Might try a flavored one next time. Will definitely buy again. Makes my lips feel soft and amazing.
Love this balm.... it's really moisturizing. I only use it at night before bed. Such a good lip "mask" during winter. My favorite scent is grapefruit. :(
Put it on before I go to bed and my lips are fresh and smooth the next morning. I also use it after a lip scrub.. Very moisturizing! Ignore reviews stating it's "greasy" and "rubs off". This TREATS your lips and isn't meant to be a fashionable lip gloss.
This balm is awesome! For several days, my lips were peeling, cracking, bleeding. It's painful and looked awful. I tried several different balms and treatments from my stash and nothing was helping. I randomly found this one hiding (forgot I had it) and within a day, my lips were so much better! Most of the cracks gone, no more bleeding, and feeling so much softer. I will have a tube of this with me at all times from now on bc it saved me. This is day 3 of 'recovery' and the biggest split I had is 99% better. Another plus is that my bf will use it too :) I have the grapefruit/ginger flavor, and I am definitely getting the other ones. I don't want to be without this since it works so well for me.
I absolutely love this lip balm. I've strayed many times but I always come back. Keeps my lips soft I apply once on the morning and at night and my lips are never chapped the SPF is a plus. This is one of my HG products. A lady in sephora recommended it to me when I told her I was looking for a lip balm with SPF in it.
I’ve brought a set of 4 lip balm because all the great reviews. My first one was blacktea & blackberry and love the scent. The texture is just right, not so sticky like L’occtaine. One thing that amazed me is how it kept my lips moist throughout the day with just one application in the morning. Secondly, I didn’t have any problem with chapped lips while I was using Jack Black. Also, it’s a bonus to have sunscreen SPF 25 on there. It works like all in one and I always have one with me. The only drawback is I've found it very hard to squeeze the last bit out of the tube. When I cutted up the tube, there was still so much left. So I've transferred the remaining to a tub to avoid any wastage.
My second tube was lemon & chamomile but didn’t really like the scent. Can’t wait to try out grapefruit and ginger.
I've bought several tubes of the Jack Black lip balm and it's a staple in my beauty routine.
I have noticed that some of the flavours don't have the SPF 25 (lemon and mint) but others do so if you're wanting the sun protection, check the tube.
I use this in the summer when I don't need the extra moisture and I use it to prep my lips before applying any lip liner, lipstick, or gloss.
It's not heavy or waxy (like Aquaphor or Vaseline) and I like the flavours.
Best of all, there's sun protection. (a must for me in my mid 40s who wants to avoid further lip lines)
This is my HG lip balm!!! Best lip balm known to man period! I know this is actually a men's line and it's pricey for lip balm but I promise you won't be disappointed if you have a serious dry lip problem. I used to have cronic dry lips that would crack and peel constantly (I know gross) but since I started to use this several years ago they have dramatically improved. The days of having to keep lip balm or chap stick in my pocket and reapply every 30 minutes to an hour or two were over when I found this! For years I went through many many lip balms and chap sticks trying to find one that actually moisturized my lips and helped correct my dry lip problem. None of them worked except this one. This feels amazing going on and stays on for hours but the best part about this is I don't have to keep using this. At first I used this before I went to sleep at night and would wake up with perfectly comfortable moisturized lips and then once again during the day. Now I only use this a few times a week and I'm good to go. This comes in several different flavors/scents as well which is nice and one tube lasts a really long time (tubes usually last me anywhere from 6 months at first to over a year and a half now that I have to reapply less often as my lips have improved because of this). Love Love Love and will continue to repurchase for many more years to come.
I am incredibly impressed by this product. I have always had dry lips. I've gone through so many lip balms over the years, each one dethroning the previous. Weleda's much hyped Everon lip balm smelled nice but sank in immediately and failed to leave any lasting hydration. I was highly disappointed by the supposed holy grail of lip protectants, Lanolin. Which eventually failed to prevent the reoccurring patch of dryness on my bottom lip. I returned to my old standby Vaseline. This time with added cocoa butter, which works effectively if I use it every hour or two, day after day. It's fine but messy and doesn't wear well under lipstick.
Jack Black's lipbalms are a whole other story. I feel like my lips stay soft even after the product has worn off. The additional SPF is an added bonus. I adore the scents (except Mint). Please please please make some tinted ones. I would buy every color.
EDIT: Literally a miracle. Never in my life have I been able to go to sleep without putting on a lip balm, wake up, and my lips are still smooth. This product basically cured the perpetual dry patch on my lower lip. I'm amazed.
