I actually love this lip balm. It's my favorite. Yes, it does leave a white film on lips, but it's only bothersome if you pile it on. If you apply lightly, the white sheen is actually quite lovely and not too obvious. I found this VERY moisturizing, unlike many lip treatments I've tried. This summer, I spent every single day for 2 months at the beach, and though my now toned, tan body didn't mind (hehe), my lips really suffered. This is the only thing that healed them.
This Avene lip balm is my HG, along with Blistex Lip Conditioner (which is amazing as well) and the original Labello (blue packaging).
I took away one lippy because if you do apply too much, the white film is hideous. But again, if applied lightly, the discreet whiteness looks very sophisticated and, dare I say...sexy.
I really love Avene products, but not this one. It leaves a white film on the lips and I really don't feel any moisture at all. Just white grease.
This is yuck yuck and yuck! leave white patches on lips. thick and greasy. not moisturizing. feels like heel balm on your lips. a relatively cheap chapstick is way way better!!
Not very effective against really dry lips. It's very rich and greasy (no white lips, though), but doesn't give any moisture to lips. Would not buy again.
I don't really like this. It leaves this white film and doesn't feel hydrating enough. But it's good for one thing though - I can apply it in cold weather and I feel it protects my lips from freezing and chapping. I appreciate it now when it's -15 C. For that reason alone I give it 3 lippies. But I won't repurchase. EDIT: ok, I've tolerated this long enough, it's time to throw it out. I was waiting for something that would justify the high price, some quality I was not careful enough to notice at the beginning, but it really does not add any moisture.. ugh! Why is it so expensive when it's so useless?
This is an amazing lip balm it has shea butter and it really really moisturizes and soothes my poor chapped lips!! :) i love it can't survive a winter without it!!!
Very good product, but unfortunately didn't work for me. (But then again, I have really bad case of dry/chapped lips, it's rare that something actually works) I said this product was good, because everyone else who tried it was satisfied and I think some even bought it. Everyone, except me. :( An hour or so after application my lips were as dry as before. Really wanted to like this one, but it didn't work out. Sad.
Not bad. Paid 9.50 at CVS. It's not a miracle product, but it goes on smoothly and hydrates my dry lips. It has a waxy texture that I prefer in a lip balm. I really don't notice the white cast.
Might rebuy. Not really sure yet.
Nice product, got it at CVS in a 2 for 1 promo. I usually use vaseline. It does leave a white coat which didnt bother me. I was concerned about the aluminium content, aluminium/Alzheimers is there a connection?. $9 a tube i thought was incredibly expensive. All things considered i would not buy.
update:i will definately rebuy, my lipstick goes on beautifully over this lip balm and i will definately rebuy. Impressed
After reading the reviews, Iīm curious as to whether there may be different formulations for this depending on the country. I purchased this in Germany, and love it. It is one of the only things that I can turn to when my lips are dry and cracked. ( I have an allergy that I havenīt figured out yet, that causes really dry tingly scabby lips)I havenīt noticed any white cast, and have really piled it on at times. It has a nice hardly noticable light sheen. The SA here did tell me not to put it any pants or jacket pockets, as it can melt easily.
Again, after reading the other reviews, I am curious as to whether there may be another formulation that causes a white cast. This was mentioned in many reviews.
I have repurchased this and continue to be happy with it.
