I have tried a few of the flavors of Baby Lips and I'm not impressed. I think they do add a nice sheer color to the lips, but as far as being super moisturizing, I would say it's not the best. I still have to use another lip balm during the cold winter or hot dry summer. This is not a lip balm that can be used alone all the time.... However, the smells are fantastic!
I went into target looking to buy the new neon baby lips but ended up coming out with Dr Rescue in the color Soothing Sorbet. I think it's so perfect! To me, this one doesn't smell like eucalyptus or menthol, I don't really notice a smell or taste at all. I love the color payoff from this! It's a pinkish berry color and it looks perfect for the fall time! The tingling on my lips feels nice since the weather is getting colder as well and my lips are starting to dry. I also love the packaging and now neutral it is, rather than the brightly colored original baby lips. I've noticed the color to last a long time as well as the product itself. It seems to moisturizer for hours! I'm definitely going bald to purchase the rest of them soon
Love this product. I have the peach colored one, which gives a beautiful sheer peachy-nude color. The perfect "my lips but better" lip balm. I like the menthol smell--it's cooling and invigorating on my lips. After keeping this applied all day the first day I bought it, my lips were so soft and hydrated. The only downside is that I doesn't last very long, but I don't mind reapplying.
I have these in Too Cool and Pink Me Up. Overall, I like these. They are very smooth and feel good on your lips. Nice simple packaging, and this is a very good deal at around $3. They do have that vapor- rub smell to them, which might be a turn off for some, but personally I love it. They do have a good amount of moisturization to them. The only con to them is the staying power. These last -at most- 30 mins. It's not a HUGE deal to me, but it would be nice to have last a little longer. I do prefer the clear one, Too Cool, to the Pink Me Up one, just because I think it moisturizes a little better than the colored one. However, I like the amount of color the pink one gives. A perfect amount. Overall, I like these a lot better than the regular Baby Lips.
I have the original baby lips without tint and I absolutely LOOOOVED that one. I saw these brand new babylips and of course had to try it. I'm pretty sure I have soothing sorbet but I can't remember. It really was a rescue when I got windburn on my lips today phew life saver. You can smell and feel the menthol on your lips and it really does soothe your lips and doesn't just sit on top (like the original babylips). I want more colors! Maybe the peach one
So I have the original Baby Lips in Peppermint. That's the blue one with the pink writing. I do love it but not a big fan of the sunscreen taste. I bought the Dr. Rescue formulation in Too Cool, which is the clear one, and the pink one (can't remember the name off hand). They do have that "vapor rub" smell to them because they are medicated. You either love or hate it. I love it. It is very soft and feels good on the lips. Texture reminds me of Fresh Sugar without the ridiculous price tag. This doesn't smell quite as good but I don't mind. I don't buy my lip products for the scent. Overall, my favorite lip balm at the moment.
If you like a bit of tingle with your lip balm ( think carmex mint or mentholatum stick ) u will like these. If u don't care for mint or tingle , don't buy them. I'm addicted to the tingle ( buxom gloss. ) but these r cheaper and more compact.
I like these a whole lot more than I like the normal Baby Lips. While I think that the pigment in the normal version is great, they never seemed particularly moisturizing to me--I never quite saw the whole lip repair claim happening and the product always felt a bit thin. If you're truly going to have an impact on my chapped lips, you need to be dense. The Dr. Rescue version definitely brings more moisture in and lasts for longer. I find the tingling and cooling sensation from the menthol to be refreshing, but I think that is probably personal preference. There is definitely a Vicks vapor-rub quality to it, which I like, but I might just be weird that way :).
I wouldn't say that this is a high-quality repair balm. If you have seriously dry lips, like I do whenever the weather gets cold, I don't see this holding a candle to Aquaphor or something equally heavy-duty like Arden's Eight Hour Cream. The pigment isn't very concentrated--I have Berry Soft and I really don't see it on my lips at all--so I wouldn't rely on it for color. The packaging is lightweight and feels a bit cheap, but it's also a $4 product, so I'm not expecting something to rival Fresh and the like. It holds together fine and has a satisfying click when it locks together, which is always nice. The label is stick on, as opposed to the original Baby Lips which have them printed directly on the case, and it gets a bit dingy-looking after a few weeks in your bag.
What this is is a decent drug store product. You don't walk into Toyota looking to buy a Ferrari. For the price and what it does, I'd say it is worth the money. I think that it's a fun, young product (with a fabulous ad campaign behind it) and is the perfect drug store pick-up when you're in there getting your aspirin and Kleenex.
I don't know, but I like these better than the regular Baby Lips... I think I like punishment perhaps. I dig the menthol/cooling/tingling/creepy occurrence and medicinal smell, taste and overall quality to the product. Maybe I'm just a complete weirdo, but for some reason I'm drawn to it like a moth to a flame. The color's are cute. I got the Berry Soft and will probably get Just Peachy and the clear Too Cool. I think they need to add some tans/browns in the mix. OH! - DON'T peel the label off to see the "ingredients" either, cause then the Baby Lips logo will be gone and you can't show off to your friends silently claiming how you are better than them. I kid, I kid. I can't wait till the much colder months so I can slather this on and really maim myself against the frosty air. No, but seriously - I like it, it's nice, try one.
I have tried both the original baby lips as well as these and I think they are pretty equal as far as moisturizing goes. (Average) They do apply very smoothly and feel creamy on the lips.The colors on these have more of a lipstick feel IME. they are not very long lasting but they are nice for when you don't feel like wearing a lip color as they seem to be pretty pigmented. As far as the menthol smell/feel goes, I don't mind it. I enjoyed the cooling feeling on my lips, and the smell isnt very strong at all. All in all, these are average but I like having them as an option.
