Love love love this lipbalm! When I was for thr first time at the Bobbi Brown counter the mua that was helping me picking out different lipsticks put at first this on my lips and I was immediately sold. Otherwise I didn't end up buying untill this afternoon at the Bobbi Brown counter and honestly I don't know what I was thinking.. Why didn't I bought this way earlier?! Best Lipbalm EVER! Rosebud salve was just fine but dried my lips out after a couple hours and Elizabeth's Arden 8 hour cream didn't do the job. HANDS DOWN BEST STUFF EVER.
I don't have much new to add to the previous reviews, but I really like this product. Like others mentioned, it's much better after you dig underneath the top layer to get to the creamier part. It is smooth and glossy, not waxy. I don't like lip products in a pot, so I apply this with a q-tip. The best thing about this lip balm is that it adds a rosy tint to my lips and makes them look better. The sunscreen is not broad spectrum, so I don't rely on this for sun protection.
This is the BEST and ONLY lip balm/gloss with SPF that does not dry out and irritate my lips. This is super moisturizing and adds just enough shine. My HG lip balm. I even apply it at night before going to bed to wake up with soft silky lips! Will buy again in a heartbeat!
HG for me. I am on my second container of this and I can't believe I haven't reviewed it. love it... use it every morning.... the little tub lasts me just under a year... I am not fond of having to use my finger but I love it anyway...highly recommend. I use this in the am and Paula's Choice lip lip tub at night.
HG stuff for me.
So I had a mad moment; me and my friends went into Bobbi Brown and went a little fangirly - I ended up spending about £120 on things and this was one of them. But I don't regret it one bit. Bobbi Brown, for me at least, has yet to disappoint, even if it does leave me penniless and living on breadsticks for a week whenever I want something. And this lip balm is just that, expensive but brilliant. It's instantly soothing, illuminating, and moisturises the lips instantly. Lovely package, lovely product. I have nothing bad to say other than its worth the money and the living on breadsticks.
I am in LOVE with this lip balm, it is truly an amazing product! I put it on every night before bed or whenever my lips are really chapped or dry and it always leaves them super hydrated and smooth. It doesn't make my lips look pale or whitish like a lot of other lip hydrating products do but brings out my natural color which makes it a great product to wear out as well. It is pricey considering you are buying a lip balm but it is more than worth the price you pay! I will continue to buy this product over and over because it truly is amazing. I have never loved a lip product as much as this one. I love the silky smooth texture and the consistency- you lips are instantly soothed and hydrated upon application. In the winter, my lips get really flakey and dry- this product is a miracle worker. I wake up with perfectly hydrated and smooth lips every single day because I use this at night. During the day when my lips are feeling dry and flaky, I put some of this on and they instantly feel better and soothed. The consistency makes your lips feel well hydrated but it isn't gooey or too thick. It is long lasting and stays in place. I have used this every night for 3 months and still have a ton of product left so although it is a little pricey it is well worth it because it lasts so long. This is one of my go to beauty products and a must have in my beauty collection and will continue to be!
I have been trying so many different lip balms. Most of them usually leave me with dryer lips than before I used them. At first, I thought the BB lip balm wasn't working. But I realized I needed to remain consistent with it. If you use it every morning and every night...you'll find that it actually works! I was so surprised b/c NOTHING has ever worked for me. I love it. I would splurge and get it again in a heartbeat.
This lip balm is magic!
Packaging is lovely and it lasts months!
Quite pricey but a good investment.
There are probably better but this is the best I've come across so far.
This is the best lip balm I have EVER tried, and as someone who not only suffers from chapped lips all year round but who also has a nasty habit of picking flaky skin off them and sometimes making them bleed, let's just say I have tried a LOT of lip balms in search of my HG! And now I've found it! When I sampled the tester for this balm in the store, I was massively impressed - the texture was soft, slightly sticky and very moisturising. I purchased it without hesitation. When I got home and tried my nice new balm, I was initially a little disappointed as mine seemed harder and much less moisturising than the store tester but over time, I discovered that the harder you press this balm, the better. Even if you make a dint in it to get some product, this was better for me as I needed a lot of moisture to keep my chapped lips soft. As soon as my lips go dry, I am then prone to start picking at them! So I gradually fell in love with this balm and didn't think I could love it even more...until I lost the lid! Trust me, this is going somewhere! Naturally, I was gutted because the pot is so stylish as well as functional but the lid disappeared down an air conditioning vent in the office where I work, so there was no hope of retrieving it! I wrapped up the lid-less balm to keep it safe until I got home and set about in search of a suitable pot to decant it into. I eventually found an equally cute Champney's glass lip balm pot, which only had a little product left, and I was never much of a fan of it anyway. I scooped out what was left of the Champney's and scooped in my BB balm. At first, I was quite mortified at how much I was messing up the texture - in the original pot, it was all pretty much smoothed out on top and now it was all gooey and a complete mess and I did wonder if it would still be usable but I needn't have worried - it is better now than it ever was! I am now able to easily get enough product onto my finger without having to rub and rub to get the desired effect for my poor chapped lips! It is softer and so much easier to work with. So my little lid accident came good in the end! I did see that a previous reviewer was advised by the SA to scrape off the top layer of the balm with a cotton bud to get to the good stuff, and whilst I didn't exactly do that with mine, it did get all churned up so I'm wondering if this is in fact what you need to do to get this balm working at its best. I don't recommend all that decanting effort, but when I run out of this balm and repurchase I will immediately churn mine up in the original pot so it's working at its best from the start. I would advise anyone struggling with the texture of this balm to do the same. I applied my balm about three hours ago, I have both eaten and drank since then and I still have a lovely moisturising layer on my lips. They are comfortable and look lovely. This balm also makes a perfect base for lip glosses and lipsticks, especially if you find that they usually dry out your lips. This forms not only a protective layer but a smooth base on which to apply. Perfect balm and worth every penny!
I swear by fresh's lip treatment, but wanted to try something new. Not a fan of this. Dried my lips out, felt sticky. Nice glossy finish, though. I'll be sticking with Fresh from now on. I typically love BB but this one just fell short.
