I saw the Aveeno Intensive Relief Therapy lip balm on sale a few weeks ago so I decided to try it out... Lately I have been very into all-natural lip balms, which this is not, but I wanted to try it out anyway. I like it decently enough; it seems to moisturize and goes on quite smooth. However, I really don't care much for the smell/taste of it. It smells like I put Vicks VapoRub on my lips (yuck) and I can taste it when I drink things. The menthol also gives a tingling effect, which I don't particularly care for in a lip balm either. I don't hate it enough to stop using it because it's not a bad lip balm, but I won't repurchase it.
I like Aveeno products but this one totally failed me. It has a slightly minty smell and tingles the lips a bit. It only further dried out my lips.
The corners of my mouth crack badly and are hard to heal due to the medication I take. I bought this to see if it would make a difference when nothing else did. In one evening, I noticed a remarkable difference. It is an extremely expensive product in a clumsy tube (I think it is made that way on purpose so you buy more of the product even though there is still some of the gel remaining in the tube but not removable). Its either this or take a longer time healing using triple antibiotic cream.
Burt's Bees was my favourite chapstick before I found this Aveeno one. When my lips are dry and burning I just apply and they instantly feel soothed. I also like that it is much less waxy than Burt's and is not overpowered by mint.
This is my all time favorite chapstick. It is the BEST!
Oh, YES finally this is IT!!! I have tried just about every lip balm, stick, soother, chap reliever, healer, etc. etc. from Sisley for $62, Fresh Sugar Lip for $23, Murad for $13...all the way down to chapstick for .79 cents. None of them really made my lips happy....until now. This AVEENO Intense Relief (the one in the pot, not the tube) really works...it feels great, stays on overnight and really hydrates and soothes dry, chapped lips....EXCELLENT discovery for about $3.30 which I found out about by reading MUA reviews.....thank you all....my lips are healed, not sealed on this affordable and effective product!
This is the best lip balm, imo. The menthol feels good on my dry lips and the vanilla-ish flavour masks it, unlike Carmex or Blistex.
I WAS A FAITHFUL CUSTOMER OF PLAIN OLD CHERRY FLAVORED CHAPSTICK...THAT IS UNTIL I FOUND THIS PRODUCT...I HAVE FULL LIPS THAT GET EASILY CHAPPED IF I GO A WHOLE DAY WITHOUT APPLYING SOME TYPE OF LIP PRODUCT...SO ONE DAY...I WENT TO WORK AND CRIED BECAUSE I HAD NO LIP GLOSS OR CHAPSTICK IN MY BAG...MY LIPS GOT REALLY BAD AND DRY...SO I WENT TO MY LOCAL DRUG STORE AND I KNEW THAT CHAPSTICK WAS NOT GONNA FIX MY ISSUE OVER NIGHT...I SAW THE AVEENO ONE AND DECIDED TO TRY IT...I DID..I PUT IT ON BEFORE GOING TO SLEEP...AND BY THE NEXT NIGHT...MY LIPS WERE BACK TO NORMAL...SORRY CHAPSTICK...BUT I AM MOVING ON TO BETTER...IT DOES HAVE ONE LITTLE FLAW WHICH I OVER LOOK...IF U KEEP IT IN YOUR POCKET OR AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BAG...IT CAN EASILY MELT...BUT THAT STILL DOESNT STOP ME FROM GIVING IT A 5 ALL THE WAY....
I love this stuff! It feels good, smells good and looks good. It is very glossy. I use it alone or over lipliner.
I really like this stuff. I put in on before I go to sleep and have noticibly softer lips in the morning.
