It smells horrible after some days using it something like chemicals, you can feel the smell in your throat, literally it makes me sick, I get stomachache every time I use it. I like the colours they look so natural but my lips are dryer than before. I am no picky with makeup specially with the cheap one but I cant handle this. Definitely I won't use them again. I bought the four colours!!! I don't want to use them anymore, my stomach wouldn't resist
I have this lip balm in Strawberry and Cherry. Overall they are great lip balms that look really nice and are perfect for everyday use. And they only cost $2.99 at 5 Below!
Strawberry- Smells really good. Looks like a nice light pink on lips. This one, like the cherry, tastes bad. The taste is probably because it is SPF 15, which I don't think is necessary. But it does look very pretty.
Cherry- Smells like cherry popsicles. It is sort of artificial, though. It looks very bright red, which is very nice. This balm is very smooth on my lips, and never dries up my skin.
The packaging definitely could have been improved. It was cute, but highly unpractical. Whenever you would put the clear casing on the balm in a rush, it would chip off the balm, wasting it. You have to be EXTREMELY careful.
Pros: Pretty color, smooth, feels good putting on, semi-moisturizing.
Cons: Thin and very wet- leaving my lips not totally mositurized, and has a really gross after taste in your mouth no matter the color/flavor you buy.
I have the watermelon one. I love it. Very moisturizing. My lips stay moist for about 2 hours without drink or food which is a whole lot better than the over hyped EOS lip balms.
I got this in cherry. Lovely sheer color. Classic cough syrup cherry flavor. Very soft, slightly waxy feel. But it doesnt last long and it transfers like nothing else. Guess thats why its cheap.
I picked up these in Cherry and Raspberry. I liked the scent ,size and amount of product. Didn't find them very moisturizing.Loved the Cherry color but after an hour or so I kept getting a bitter taste on my mouth. Happened with the Raspberry one too. I wanted to ignore this as I really loved how the Cherry looked on me but I just couldn't. Don't think would purchase any other flavors nor use the ones I bought.
there good lil lip balms .. there good to throw in your purse or keep in desk or what not . i have a ton of these two .. the only prob is they dont stay long on your lips ! but color is good and doesnt have a nasty taste on your lips
I have this in Sour Apple. Honestly, as a balm it's useless. It's thin, and basically evaporates right off my lips, leaving them dry and cracked. The scent is a faint fake green apple - it doesn't taste sour in any way, so "sour apple" is a misnomer. It is quite green, so you could look green around the lips if you apply heavily. The only good thing about it, honestly, is the packaging - a huge tube that twists at the bottom with a silver holographic and green polka dot label with a silhouette of a cowgirl on it. I've kept this in my computer desk drawer because it's too cute to toss even though it's basically useless as a balm. I won't buy it again.
I'm reviewing the juicy balms with the holographic female silhouette packaging. The packaging isn't as cute as the old balms with the fruit print but the formula is different. The older version was a bit more waxy and generally had a tint. The holographic ones are much lighter, emollient, and invisible. For a drugstore balm, these are a pleasant surprise. Granted the ingredient list is a bit crazy for me but it's nice to be able to pick up a cheapo balm from the drugstore I know I'd actually enjoy using. I also really like the subtle fruity scent to these, they're non-offensive and nostalgic of a lot of candies I enjoyed as a kid. Most aren't natural scents but I don't detect any plastic afterscent or taste. I enjoy these A LOT more than LipSmackers, Carmex, Softlips, Blistex, etc.
For $2.99 they're cheaper than the jumbo lipsmackers and work better. I managed to snag 8 on clearance at Rite Aid for 75 cents each (Orange, Strawberry, Cherry, Lemon-Lime, Sour Apple, Raspberry, Strawberry-Kiwi, Watermelon). The Orange is my fav because it reminds me of orange starbust candy (I assume this was once the Tangerine one). The one I dislike the most is Strawberry-Kiwi because it's quite perfumey.
got this in strawberry & just couldnt stand it! it was waxy,tasted horrible & the smell was so artificial that it just turned me off so i gave it to my 11yr old daughter. continued >>
