I LOVE this product. I have extremely sensitive lips and finding lipbalms/products that doesn't trigger a break out of coldsores is a problem i have. This smells yummy, and i like that it is not a balm cause i dont like the waxy feeling on my lips. I am more of a lipstick wearer than a lipgloss wearer and this keeps me lips nice and smooth and in great condition so my lipsticks go on nicely. It is also nice to add on top of lipstick if it is matte to give it a nice sheen. The SPF is an added bonus and i would not be found on holiday with out this.
It lasts me a really long time so i have no problems with the price.
The tub is probably the only downside due to sanitary reasons, but i don't let anyone but me use mine and i am a sanitizer fiend when im on the go, and i apply with lipbrushes at home so its not a major gripe for me. I Highly recommend it. The tinted ones are lovely too!
I use this as a lip primer over my regular lip balm. Alone it's moisturizing and nice but not as good as my drugstore lip balm. However, it does a GREAT job priming the lips fr lipstick (my regular balm alone didn't make my lipsticks go on as nicely as this did). It smoothes the lips and makes the lines not visible. I apply my reg balm, a thin coat of this, then lipstick. My lips look plump, smooth, and pretty for a long time! The spf is a plus. Though this is supposed to be clear, it does lighten the lips a little, which I like since my lips are pigmented, but if you don't like that then i would say try one of the tinted ones. Re purchasing when I run out for sure!
It was kind of soothing the first day, but now I get the sinking feeling that regular usage will cause major peeling and flaking. I constantly have to reapply because my lips no longer feel moist after 5 min. Very annoying. Please save your money.
I love this product :) It retails for US$14.50 for a 15ml tub. It is the best lip balm out of my collection of 30+ lip balms or so. I have this in the old white container before it was repackaged. As stated in the website, “A lightweight conditioning balm for the lip formulated with SPF 15. Protects the lips from everyday aggressions, holds in moisture, provides gentle repair to dry lips. Contains Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, vitamins A and E. Petroleum based to seal in moisture yet smooth to apply, non-sticky on. Slightly vanilla-flavoured. Colour-free.” It does hold true to what it claims. I use a lip brush to apply it. After using it almost everyday for the past 1.5 years, there is still about 3/8 amount left in the pot, enough for at least another year of use. This can be applied on before sleep, and you can scrub off the dead skin on your lips the next morning. I also always use this before lipstick or lipgloss. While it makes lipstick application more sheer, it keeps my lips nicely moisturized. I also love its vanilla scent. Even though it may be about 5 – 6 times more expensive than regular tubes of lip balm, it also holds more product and this really moisturizes. I have a junior who complained about the price, but she uses up her Neutrogena lip balm much faster as her lips are constantly dry. This will make a good birthday present for her. I will recommend this to anybody, and will definitely repurchase this again :)
Fantastic moisturizer. It's far superior to Burt's Bees. I'm a lipstick girl and wear very drying lipsticks like CoverGirl Outlast and MAC lipsticks and my lips can really take a beating from these. I apply at night before bed and wake up to soft, moisturized lips in the morning.
- Non sticky/greasy.
- Nice vanilla bean smell/taste.
- Lasts several hours without having to reapply.
- Sweet smell/taste can be overwhelming if you're not in the mood for
- Leaves white tint to lips.
- Lip tin can he difficult to close.
Overall, this is a nice lip conditioner. It's not good enough to replace my HG lip treatment (Rosebud Strawberry Balm), but it's nice to use now and then for something different. Will repurchase.
I have two of these, fushia fix and the regular one, both in the pot. I love these, really creamy and smooth, smells so good(like vanilla) and although a lil pricey, well worth it. A must have for me, I keep the fushia fix one in my purse and the regular by my bed. Fushia fix gives a "just ate a strawberry" pink look, love this when on the go.
I use this underneath lots of other lips products that I use...one thing that I love about this is if I'm going out on a date or something of that sort, I'll put this on in the morning, repeat throughout the day, and by the evening my lips are deliciously soft! I have a major problem with dry/chapped lips- this product fixes that!
Only draw back is it can look a little like white chap stick slathered all over your lips if you put too much on (particularly for brown folks like myself).
A little goes a long way with this product!
I really like this lip conditioner, it leaves my dry lips soft for lipstick application.
For the price I paid for this, I was expecting something amazing. What I got was something average.....I loved the simpleness of the packaging, and the fact that it does what it's meant to.
I didn't like how it left a white layer on my lips if I put too much on without checking it in a mirror or whatever.
I probably won't buy it again, I don't think it's worth it.
