HG lip balm and only lip balm I've used up completely (without losing it) and repurchased. I didn't notice how amazing this was until I try to go back to EOS. it wasn't cutting it. Great smell, cute packaging, actually moisturizes, great base for lipstick. I have nothing bad.
This is the cutest, cutest jar! People always comment on the packaging when I pull it out of my bag. The balm itself is extremely moisturizing and smells just like candy, but I think the cocoa butter in it is making me break out A LOT around my lip. Not a good look! I am willing to try the original version to see if it would work, but for now, I had to stop using this one.
I love this lip balm! It makes your lips so smooth and it smells really yummy. I use it before I go to bed and in the morning my lips are in perfect shape! It can be used under a regular lipstick as well, but you would need to apply it very lightly so it allows the lipstrick to actually stay on top of it without being runny.
This winter has been especially brutal on my lips for no clear reason. I had tried a few "stick" lip care formulas but I wasn't having much luck. The only time I saw any improvement was when I put some Aquaphor on my lips before bed in a moment of desperation and I had some limited success with that. The Aquaphor healed up some of the cracking, but it tasted lame and constantly needed to be re-applied. Shortly after that experiment, I saw these completely adorable Vaseline mini-jars at the grocery store. I decided to buy one.
In my mind, my hypothesis was this: petrolium jelly (a main ingredient in aquaphor) + cocoa butter = even more moisture & better taste!
And it I thought right because it works like a charm! I put this on before bed and wake up with soft lips. It also leaves lasting moisture for several hours after application if I use it during the day. It has a pleasant slightly sweet aroma and taste. It's a little gooier feeling than other "stick" products, but I like the results so much better.
I did subtract a couple of lippies for packaging. Granted, the mini jars ARE really cute (even the checkout person who rang me up commented on the cute packaging). I just don't like it when I have to stick my fingers into anything to get product out. To me, it seems unhygenic. However, the product is so cheap I don't think I really care *that* much to stop me from buying it. If I catch a cold while I'm using this jar, I could definitely afford to buy a new one if I didn't want to re-use the old one. It would just be even better (even if only in my mind!) if it were in a tube.
I thought this was going to be like regular vaseline but the consistency is actually a bit thicker. It has a nice soothing scent too like vanilla and chocolate. This has saved my lips from chapping and peeling during the extremely cold weather. It's so affordable, and so small you can easily pack it anywhere (in the car, purse, desk at work, makeup bag, pocket). I love putting this on a few minutes before applying my lipstick so the lipstick doesn't settle into dry spots. It's a lot longer lasting than some of the other butters out there. It actually has repaired my lips long term. If you want extra moisture, slather a thick layer of this on before bedtime. It's gonna make your lips so soft and plump looking the next day.
The tiny jar is adorable and fits well in my purse or coat pocket. It has a lovely vanilla/cocoa smell and really helps to seal in the moisture when my lips are dry. This winter has been specifically brutal not only on my hands but my lips. After using this, my lips feel and look more hydrated and best of all there is no stickiness. Perfect to use at bedtime to soak in overnight. I also use it under lipsticks that are drying to add sheen. I have also used this on dry cuticles and flaky areas of my skin with no problems. Works well in a pinch. I now want to try the rose version to see how well that compares to this. Highly recommended. I found my jar at CVS but may be cheaper at Walmart.
Omg these are the cutest little things ever!!! I have these adorable little jars in the original, cocoa butter and rose (But I could only find the rose version in the USA at rite aid.) They work so well with moisturizing your lips, face, body and pretty much everywhere. When I'm in a pickle I will just whip one of these out and start moisturizing anything: everything... Even down to my cuticles and elbows lol.
And when I have a really bad cold and I blow my nose too much with my Kleenex, the skin on my nose, the top of my lip and lips get super dry and flaky. To the point it's painful because I've rubbed the skin raw. The only thing that helps is Vaseline petroleum jelly. Before I go to bed I apply a thick amount of this all over my raw skin, and by the next day my skin is back to normal.
And I love how this smells so yummy!! Vaseline, you guys took CUTE AND ADORABLE to a whole new level!! I got this for $2 cdn at shoppers drug mart.
I didn't realize just how good this was til this past weekend when my lips were cracked, bleeding, and peeling they were so dry, and it isn't from lack of using products on them - it's just that nothing really works very well. I grabbed my *huge* jar of cocoa butter vaseline (same stuff as the adorbs little jars - just more of it!) and put some on. I was amazed how fast it soothed them, how well it lasted, and how not sore and peeling they are today! I honestly think that I'm going to toss all my other lip treatments and just stay with this, at least for winter. I'll use my less worthy ones come warmer weather, but this stuff saved my bacon, er, lips! I have a little jar of it as well, and that is now safely ensconced in my purse. It. Works. plain and simple.
Can I just say that this is the CUTEST Vaseline container EVER??? This lip balm works really well, keeps my lips moisturized and it smells great. Also, I love the portability (and I mean, SMALL PURSE portability) - I can't really take my small TUB of Vaseline everywhere I go, so this is a nice alternative. Also, since I use regular Vaseline for my lips anyway, I can always fill this small container with the goopy stuff when it's done :) I only wish it was a HINGED lid as it can be a bit tricky popping the lid off!
Ok, apart from this being the cutest little tub of vaseline EVER, it's really great. Simple vaseline and cocoa butter, perfect for moisturizing chapped lips. And I'm sure you could use this on other places as well (Shoppers carries a large life brand tub of this for cheap). Vaseline is an OK moisturizer, but it's very good at locking in moisture, so combined with the cocoa butter it's PERFECT.
Bottom line: this thing is so dang cute and effective, everyone needs one.
It was a little hard to find, but I found it in the toothpaste isle with the lip balms in Shoppers drug mart.
