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, ďA 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.Ē 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 Ė 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.
I bought this lip conditioner after having read so many good reviews about it. Usually I wouldnít spend that much on a lip care product especially since the Carmex lip balm was doing a pretty good job but I simply wanted to try out something new. Anyway I bought this and it feels nice and smooth on the lips but at the same time it makes my lips look too glossy. On top of that my lips werenít able to absorb it so it felt like I put on a layer of grease on, which didnít do anything to improve my lips and in fact my lips felt dryer than before. I had the same problem with Vaseline so Iím very disappointed. Itís overpriced and does nothing. I donít recommend this product to anyone.
ChapStick is a must-have product. This isn't. That being said, I really do love it. It smells great, has no flavor, and moisturizes well with a small amount of product. It's a nice luxury if you're a fan of lip balms and have a few bucks to spare. I'll definitely repurchase it.
