AMAZING. But extremely minty so if you don't like that or are sensitive to fragrance and stuff this might be a miss for you. It tastes so good, haha. Very glossy but it does what it says.

Staying power is horrible, dries out my lips, and i hate the tube. I like the root beer flavored one but i have not been able to find it again. I dislike all the other flavors... Will not repurchase.

I have chronically chapped lips and love this line. The Rose Shimmer is my favorite of the color tints, but all of the Ultra Mentha products are great. My only complaint is that they wear off quickly, but the pros far out weight the cons.

Like the previous reviewer stated, Burt Bees has nothing on this stuff! Not only does this feel tingly, it tastes like spearmint as well! Whenever I put some on, I can't help but remember chewing Wrigley's gum as a child. It moisturizes and inexpensive. Keeps my lips looking supple so this will be another staple in my make-up kit. In fact, I'm planning to buy Cinnamint soon. Will repurchase.

I love this mascara it works so well & really moisturizes your lips. I love the minty smell & taste, & a tube of this lasts forever.

I have several of these mentha glosses in different tints. They are tingly and cool feeling on the lips. I really like the minty scent. Thankfully this gloss is very moisturizing and I feel like it smoothes my lips. They go on sale often, so it's not as expensive. I do think they can be a little gloppy and thicker than I would like, hence the 4 lippies instead of 5.

Honestly, Burt's Bees has nothing on this. I love the ultra mentha feel and smell. The first time I used it I started freaking out, because I never felt something so strong before. I thought I was getting an allergic reaction. But I really like how fast it works. Within minutes my lips are smoother and the dead skin peels off without bleeding (gross I know). But I have thick lips, so they dry easily as well. When I use other types of lip balm (I used this as a lip balm more than lip gloss) it takes several hours and many applications.

The only thing I dislike is the price. It is kind of pricey when other things like it are only half the price, but I go to BBW twice everywhere when they're selling these for only $2.50 and I stock pile it for six months.

I'll start off by saying I have extremely dry lips, and I cannot wear lipsticks or many lip glosses because of it. I tend to stick to vaseline, blistex medex, and vitamin e lip balm from the body shop. Anything else just makes my dry lips look terrible, peel, flake and leaves me with a total mess.
However, I am addicted to anything with menthol in it, so I HAD to try this when one of my friends came back with it from a trip to the US. I LOVE it. It's not the most moisturizing thing I've used, but it doesn't have any negative affects, so that's a bonus. It smells and tastes AMAZING, it's very shiny which is a good change from my boring lip balms. After using this once I was hooked. It's hard to get this here in Canada, so my cousin and I made a deal that I will do her hair for free when she comes to visit from the USA, and she'll send me these! Works out perfectly! I've tried the ultra mentha, mentha, spearmint, cinnamint, the lip tints, and the lip exfoliator, and I love them all!
I only gave this a 4 because it's not as moisurizing as I need, but in all other areas it is amazing.
I'm not sure of the price, because as I said my cousin gives it to me as a gift.
Definitely love these lip balms, and wish there was a Bath and Body works closer so I could try more of their products!

I love this because it's gloss and chapstick in one. This makes your lips as glossy as you'd like (nice sheen to super glossy), smells great, feels great, tastes great and I love the packaging (so you can get every bit out). It's kind of pricey at $7.50 so I wait until Bath and Body Works has it on sale for buy 2 get 1 free. then the price averages out to $5 per lip shine. The only other downfall is that it wear off quite quickly.
