I bought this from my local beauty supply and i really enjoy it! Makes lips feel very soft and moisturized. I paid $2 for it so thats a good price for a product that works so well. I was worried i would hate the smell since I'm not fond of coco butter but it is nice and isn't over powering. Nopainnobeauty.blogspot.com
Dries out my lips even more and gives an annoying tingly feeling. Won't buy again.
my mom gave me this lip balm as a gift. i've been using it for about 2 weeks now. I have definitely seen a major improvement in my lips. They have more of a shine and seem more pinker. this is great for day wear since it has spf. it also has vitamin E which is great for the skin.
however, i have been using carmex as well. but i only use it at night before i go to bed. i also use burts bees beeswax lip balm if im going out at night with some friends. So those lip balms could also contribute to my change in appearance of lips (i just recently got into lip care)
DO NOT FORGET TO EXFOLIATE!!!!! I exfoliate my lips 2-3 times a week to remove dead cells and to bring up nice fresh healthy skin. Also don't forget to use a great moisturizing lip balm right after to avoid irritation (i use palmers for this part too).
for a natural exfoliator for someone on budget i suggest mixing 1 table spoon of honey and one table spoon of sugar. you can also add in a bit of vaseline for some moisturizing benefits.
when i run out i do plan to buy more.
Great stuff!! At first it seems like its not going to work but i think your lips have to get use to it. Instead of giving the false sense of your lips being moisturized like many chapsticks do, this just straight moisturizes! no hiding behind anything so after using it a few days in a row my lips started healing and i was able to go longer periods w/o using it. When using chapstick i find myself using it constantly or else my lips feel horrible. And you get sooo much! AWESOME product!
Great for lips and cuticles! Very moisturizing.
great lip balm. I love the cocoa butter formula it all smells so nice. this lip balm is really moisturising and cares for my lips well but the only issue I have with it is that it lasts about 5 minutes which is irritating but overall I like this xxx
I got this product as part of a gist and decided to try it out recently. I like the smell, and it applies pretty well. But it doesn't feel like it goes on as soft as other lip balms, and sometimes it will leave my lips stinging a little (which seems to be a common problem, judging by the reviews here).
It was nice, and I do like it, but I prefer other lip balms.
This seems to be a very hit-or-miss product, and I think I might have an idea why. Most lip balms contain petrolatum, which is supposed to be an excellent lip protectant, and for many people, the key to moisturized lips. This lip balm doesn't, so you won't get that instant creamy effect that you do with other balms, and it won't work the same way petrolatum based lip balms do, but for me that's a great thing. Petrolatum always makes my lips feel nice and soothed at first, but then quickly goes on to dry them out horribly, and turn them into a tight, thin, peeling mess. If you check out reviews for other lip balms that don't contain petrolatum (ie Burt's Bees, Fresh Sugar) you'll see that they also have mixed reviews. Anyway, this stuff is a lifesaver for me! No more flaky lips that feel horrendously dry as soon as the lip balm wears off, this actually moisturizes my lips and makes them plump and smooth. I love the cocoa butter scent too. I wish it wasn't so hard to find, but I actually buy these in bulk now from amazon and have them all over the place, I keep one in my bag, my car, etc. Best inexpensive lip balm there is.
Ugh really regret buying this. Feels caked on on the lips and makes them sting! Had to actually wash this off. Don't buy!
Stings my lips and then causes it to peel.
