smell is very strong and puts me off a little. also leaves a weird white film on your lips as if you've literally smeared cold cream on. i know its a cold cream lip balm but that means i can only wear it just before bed when i know no one is going to see me.
avene is a good brand, i live on their skincare and this balm does moisturise but the white film and smell really bothers me.
All in all, this is not a bad product. It moisturizes pretty well, and the staying power is good. The smell is not overpowering and rather pleasant as well. However, it does do one thing that I don't want lip balm to do - it is white on your lips, which means the natural pink (mind you, it's pretty pink) of my lips is reduced to a pale, ashen color. It also gets stuck in the lines, so when you smile you see little white cracks. Yucky! The package is a pretty plain one, which does not bother me, as most pharmaceutical skin care products have the same trait. The price is not overwhelmingly expensive in Europe either, but I'm sure you can find something of a better value.
This is a pretty good lipbalm. I use this in the daytime because my other lipbalm (Amore Pacific) is a bit stickier. This absorbs very quickly and leaves my lips very soft and moisturized. I don't have the white lips problem and my lipstick/lipgloss applies very well on top of this lip balm. I haven't noticed the lipstick slipping. It's not as good as the Cle de Peau lip balm but it's a lot cheaper and almost as good. I currently alternate between Kiehl's (#1 with no color and the baby), Boots No7 lip treatment, Amore Pacific and this one (I know... but I have chapped lips all around the year because I live in a very dry apartment that no humidifier will cure and I don't drink enough water I think) and this one is my favorite day time lip balm. I would buy it again!
My mother swears by this balm. I got used to it, and I think it's a pretty good lip balm. It's very moisturizing. It will leave a white film on your lips if you apply too much. If you apply the right amount, it's perfect and sinks in really quickly. It makes my chapped lips plump and soft. The only downside for me (as a broke student) is the high price tag. But it doesn't bother me. I found some other products that are just as good, yet budget-friendly.
This is a good lipbalm, it used to be my favourite. I do not have a problem with white lips when i use it, but if it is over applied i think the lips could look pale. It is too expensive for the job it does. There are other products in the same pricerange (and cheaper) doing a better job, so i wont repurchase.
Not the best lip balm. Somewhat disappointed with this - the other products I've used from Avene yielded much better results. Much more effective products out there for cheaper.
Itís a very good lip balm. It moisturizes and conditions my lips very well. When applied lightly, it doesnít leave white film. Unfortunately, I find its fragrance unusually strong for lip balms. I will also lower the grade because it doesnít have any UVA/UVB protection. Because of that, I use it only at night.
I like this balm a lot.
I don't use it during the day, I just put it on my lips during the night - and I am very satisfied.
The condition of my lips changed for good after just a few days of using this.
Horrible stuff! Bought this because it said it was non-comedogenic but left me with horrible white lips and didn't get rid of any flakes.
I have to say that this little thing work's wonder's for me, I have the most driest lips on earth, cracking 1cm deep, and the only thing that work's till now it my HG Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss Clinique that I will be still in love but it's nice to have something else that works. Many people complain about the sheen, but actually for me it's works very well and almost looks like a lipstick.
