Well better than the original Chapstick. This one feels much better on the lips. Not waxy just smooth. I wish it smelled more like vanilla though this just smells almost like a plastic if u know what I mean. Great before bedtime and despite the lack of a vanilla scent I would buy again. Update: actually the more I use this stuff the more I like it. Iam a avid lip balm collector and must say luv this stuff for the price! The smell got better after I used it a few times and works great a bedtime and under my Chanel lipsticks!!! Not waxy or cakey! Much better IMO than Eos ( which I hate) or Burt's!!! Yup will be going to buy more!
I got this from birchbox. I keep it only because I always lose my lip balm so it's a back up to have. Key word is back up. I do not like this. It leaves a weird film on my lips. I suppose it would be ok if I put something else (lipstick) over it, but I would never wear this alone and out in the public.
I got the Vanilla Creme one. I'm not sure if there/how many other "flavors" this has but this vanilla one is scented weird. It's more creme-y than vanilla for sure.
Don't waste your money on this.
Really like this!! Wish the Vanilla Cremé flavor was a bit stronger, but this is very moisturizing. It doesn't taste/feel medicinal. I do think that Chapstick (& lipbalms in general esp Carmex, HELLO Carmex yes!!) produce a certain addiction/dependence of your lips on them once you get using them in a chronic manner but maybe that's just a wives tale...it just is that speaking from my own experience, it is like if I don't use lipbalms (esp after wearing lipgloss or lipstick that day), that if I skip even one night, I get a rebound dryer lips effect... They peel, sting, feel dry, just feel gross really without lipbalm or even simply Vaseline. I normally have my lips coated either in lipgloss/lipstick if not then I have on a lipbalm, not just a habit, more like a necessity!! My lips are naturally dry, I don't lick them, but I am lost without my lipbalms. I wonder what's the magic ingredient in lipbalms that makes them like crack for lips?!!! :\
This isn't anything to get excited about. It feels pretty good but wears right off, just like any other chapstick.
I can't use most chapstick because I have an allergic reaction to them that blisters my lips. However, I can use this one and I actually REALLY like it! It does make my dry lips feel softer and moisturized. I don't think it gives 8 hours of moisture, but for at least 3-4 my lips do feel moisturized. Don't buy into any plumping claims because that is non-existent. It is actually a bit pricey for chapstick, but since it's works, it's worth it. Yes, I will repurchase! Oh one more thing, they say it's vanilla crème scent, but honestly I never smell anything. Maybe it's my nose, but it certainly isn't an overpowering scent.
This has the highest rating of anything I've ever seen on MUA, and that boggles my mind. I thought it was terrible! I got it in a Birchbox and threw it away!
This was the first Chapstick product I'd ever used (weird, I know) and I was not impressed. It was waxy and didn't absorb into my lips, but rather sat on them in a rather unflattering looking way. It didn't last very long at all, and after it (quickly) wore off, my lips were left feeling drier than they were before. Maybe that's the trick to get you addicted to the product? I don't know.
The taste of it was fine but the texture was poor and the formula was lacking any real moisturizing ability. Pass.
I buy lots of lip balm - lots! I bought this one on a whim at Walgreen's yesterday. It is really nice! Feels smooth and comfortable on the lips. Not sure about the 8 hour claim, but I will definitely repurchase. Highly recommend!
I'm already on my 4th tube of this lip balm! I have one next to my bed and one in the family room. It's very smooth and silky on the lips. The fragrance is very pleasant and is a bit on the light side, which is a good thing, but some may be disappointed that it's not more strongly vanilla scented. Overall, it's a very good, inexpensive lip balm that I will continue to use. :-)
Bought this Chapstick on a whim today. I'm usually drawn to anything with a vanilla scent and although I was slightly disappointed by the fragrance, the lip balm itself really delivers. I love that it has no sheen and has an almost velvety feel when applied, similar to the feeling of a silicone based primer. A little pricey at $4 but worth a try!
It has been decades since Chapstick has been on my lips. This version is an outstanding upgrade from the old days. My lips were instantly soothed and this does last a very long time on lips, leaving them smooth feeling even after it has worn off. Product claims to give lips a "fuller smoother appearance," and it does smooth the look of lines for me. The coating balm has no shine, and I like that I can use it outside of my natural lip line, where it really helps with the look of those fine little lines ladies of a certain age are prone to.
