This lip balm is definitely overpriced and overhyped. It has a grainy texture, probably from the honey crystallizing in the pot, and it feels like a thick, gritty paste on my lips. It didn't seem to have any effect at all, positive or negative, except that the texture was so annoying that I had to wipe it off within a few minutes of applying it. I really don't understand why anyone likes this at all--it made me feel like I applied gritty peanut butter to my lips! The only good thing about this lip balm is the grapefruit scent and flavor. It's a nice, light scent that would have been excellent on a better product.
Beware NUT ALLERGY sufferers - this contains sweet almond oil. Lucky I read the lable......
I bought this during sale for just NT$350(US$10). I was expecting this to smell really honey, yet no matter how hard I try, the only thing I could smell was a very light grapefruit scent. The balm itself was quite nice, very soothing with excellent repairing ability. However, because the texture is thick and greasy, I only use this at night. Also, I think NUXE should put this in a tube or something else instead of an unsanitary jar. The regular price of NT$700 is quite pricey for a lip balm imo...
I use this every night before going to bed and all throughout the day. Has really helped condition my lips.
I've been wanting this lip balm for years and am so glad I finally gave it to temptation. It's not gritty like L'Occitane's honey balm, and I love the thick, creamy consistency. Exfoliate your lips with a soft, damp toothbrush or washcloth before applying for really kissable lips.

I've been using this on and off for a number of years now. The price is OK in the UK £7.50 considering it can easily last a year with regular use. I prefer Origins perfect world lip guardian from an effectiveness perspective but the smell of this is beautiful and I enjoy using it. Have to be careful to only use a little or you get white bits around the inside of your lips - not a good look. Its probably better as a night time balm. Overall lovely.
I brought this gem on beautyhabit.com after reading about it in Elle magazine. I took a chance and brought it anyway. The price is expensive and the packaging leaves much to be desired, but this has to be the best lip balm EVER! Made in France, this balm has ultra conditioning properties. My lips didn't feel greasy, it felt well moisturized and the soft feeling lasted practically all day for me. The grapefruit smell is sublime. I even used this on extreme dry patches on my face and it cleared up some dark spots to boot (probably due to the citric acid). I will definetly repurchase again and my buy another for the face alone.
I quite like this, it doesn't taste that great, kind of grapefruity, but also isn't so bad to put me off! It's very moisturising, and makes my lips feel very soft, yet for me, the effects aren't that long lasting. Also the packaging is way to bulky. Probably will not repurchase.
I might like this better if it came in a tube. This is a good performing lip balm, but the texture is a little on the gritty side. I don't mind that as much as I mind dipping my fingers in the tub and getting it under my nails and all. It works, but it's not a pleasant experience for me. Prefer a tube and more slip.
I really love this lip balm! It's a thick yellow paste with a very lovely grapefruity scent. It spreads quite easily on lips and gives a matt finish with enables easy application of gloss or lipstick on top. This is really the only thing that can restore my lips back to normal when they're really dry and chapped. I put a thick layer of this on before goign to bed. When I wake up I have a lot of dead skin mixed with the balm on my lips and when I scrub them I just get the most baby soft lips again. Miracle!
