Shockingly horrible, based on the raves posted. Painful, drying and lacked any exfoliating properties. Product dried up very quickly. Pass on this.

Love this stuff! I have eczema/super sensitive skin so on and around my lips are often times red, flaky, and chapped. I grabbed this on a whim at target and I'm SO glad I did! Using this has made my lips feel so soft and moisturized. I definitely recommend giving this product a try!

I like this product because of it's convenience and it;'s strength. I didn't think this would exfoliate as good as an old toothbrush but i have now thrown that toothbrush away! Quick, easy, cheap and not messy

First off, I will say if your lips are severely rough, or extremely dry, or chapped, this might be a little too intense for you. I would not use it if your lips are extremely dry or chapped, anyway.

And I realize you can just do a DIY scrub of honey and brown sugar and put that mixture in an empty container, but I like the convenience of this.

To me, the 'granules' or exfoliating beads in this are pretty sparse, but even so, it is a little 'rough'. Hence I would not recommend this for extremely dry nor chapped lips.

I followed the directions and applied in a circular motion (which felt odd to use a lip product in a circular motion, esp bc my lips are not large, they are quite thin), and I kept applying, not feeling many 'granules' at all. However, it did work!!! Then it says to use a wet cloth to rub off and follow up with a balm or gloss to protect. You will definitely need a balm or gloss, because it is that rough and basically leaves your lips literally "stripped" of any moisture.

But again, especially if money were an issue, or you like the more 'natural' route, you could use of course use a DIY lip scrub of brown sugar and honey or some other similar DIY concoction, that way you can control how 'rough' it is and it is more natural, and have no chemicals (I did not read the ingredient list on this), but, again, for me, I like the convenience factor of this. I think this would be good for travel, too (Although I might suggest popping this into a tiny little bag of it's own, as I have read some had had issues with the cap easily falling off. Luckily my cap stays pretty secure, knock on wood!).

All in all I would recommend this as mainly a maintenance-type lip scrub if you have rather in-shape lips or at least not overly dry or chapped lips. But if your lips need some serious TLC, I just think this might be a little too harsh. But to keep lips soft and 'in shape,' I think this is great! I only use this maybe, on average, once every couple weeks. When my lips are overly dry or need TLC, I avoid this. But imo and ime it is great for maintaining soft lips. Would recommend (with caution) and will re-purchase!

This is so amazing that I'm currently looking at my backup of it sitting on my desk. Every morning if my lips are feeling dry, I'll lick them slightly, then run this over them until they're smooth. The roughness does take a little getting used to, but now I love it! It smells sweet but not sickeningly so, and a tissue run over my lips afterwards gets any leftover bits off. If you ever enjoy wearing mattes, you NEED this in your life.

The $3 price tag, for me, just sealed the deal. It lasts forever, and it'll quickly reach HG status.

I absolutely love this product. It is like having a lip balm and a sugar scrub in one convenient, lipstick-shaped form. You can probably make something similar by putting some vaseline on your finger and dipping it in coarse/raw brown sugar to scrub the dead skin off your lips. The convenience of this product is undeniable though. The package is very good quality (although the cap is not very tight on mine). The bullet goes all the way down the tube. The product itself is very "sturdy", it can take a fair amount of pressure as you vigorously scrub your lips. It has a very pleasant sweet taste. The "sugar/scrubber" particles are quite large, and may feel a bit harsh/painful/uncomfortable at first. I use this almost daily before I go to bed. The balm that is left on the lips is quite thick, and I can still feel some of it on in the morning.

Brought this recently. I love it. As a severe lip picker (unfortunately a bad habbit I have had for years.) I pick at anything that is lose on my lips. I use this every morning when I wake up, I brush my teeth and wash it off. I then wash my face and put on lipbalm. My lips are smooth for the whole day and it prevents me picking!

Feel like eating it! I love the sugar and sweet sensation. It also does a good job in exfoliating my lips. My lips aren't really flaky tho'.
The packaging looks like a lipstick, quite premium. Absolutely will repurchase!

This is absolutely genius. I have tried a million methods of exfoliating my lips and nothing works as great as this. I have tried using a wash cloth, tooth brush, LUSH exfoliating sugar scrub (which used to be my favorite but is much too messy and it expires very quickly). This is very inexpensive I think I got it for a couple bucks and it works like a dream. All you do is gently massage it on your lips like you're putting lipstick on a voila `all your dead skin is gone! I just wipe off my lips with a baby wipe to get the dead skin and my lips are brand new. I highly recommend this!
