Love this. I put it on after removing makeup, just before bed, and first thing in the morning to condition my lips. I don't wear lip"sticks" but I do wear tinted gloss over a base of this comfortable, pleasantly scented balm.
It seemed to start out alright, but after using for a week or so, I chapping. And I use a ton of lip balm. I switched over to this in a fit of eco-awareness and regret it. It doesn't stay on and it doesn't seem to moisturize when it does stay on. Definitely will not repurchase. The lip balm is going in the trash.
This is my HG of lip moisturizers. It is a very unusual consistency, almost melts which takes some getting used to. The first few times I used it I didn't like it bc I almost thought that it was drying out my lips, but I stuck with it and my lips sort of exfoliated and then were nice and soft and smooth. Cool stuff!
I actually have this one in the jojoba oil and aloe version. It is very moisturizing almost all the time. But sometimes it doesn't moisturize (werid, huh?). Mint is one of the last ingredients so this balm smells a little like mint. It is a little glossy, feels slick and thin but lasts a long time! I bought mine at Mother's Market.
Bought this after reading all the raves here. This balm is very moisturizing, but I have to use it very sparingly; otherwise it has a little too much 'slip.' I would prefer it if this had a little more staying power and a thicker consistency, but for $1.99, I can't complain too much. I would probably repurchase this one, if only because of the cost, but I can't say that I would seek it out.
The scent reminds me of a creamsicle. It doesn't bother me yet, but I can see how people might get sick of it.
This isn't my favourite lip balm but it's the one I carry around with me in the day for if my lips get very dry (to make my Clarins one last longer!) but I do prefer this one to apply a thin layer before lipstick, if the lipstick is dry (I do this with MAC Faux and Sandy B lipsticks and they actually feel very moisturising with just a tiny bit of this balm underneath). It's the perfect balm for that because it's light, but it's not waxy like the ultra-cheap lip balms and it's not greasy, thin and wet like Vaseline. Love the smell.
This lipbalm is ok. It glides on smoothly & it does a decent job of keeping my lips moisturized, but it doesn't last very long.
For about 2 years, up until this spring, this was my absolute favorite lip balm. They reformulated it and now it's dry and very waxy. Previously, it would glide on and was very moist. I checked at several stores and the product is consistant. If anything, Burt's Bees is more creamy now, and that's saying something. Oh well. no repurchase.
Love this lip balm! So moisturizing! Glides on easily and has Shea butter. No SPF- the only downside. Ingredients: Soybean Oil, Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Ozokerite, Carnauba, Shea Butter, Ginkgo, Rosemary, Vitamin E, Propyl Gallate, Essential Oil of Mint
Pros: all natural, dirt cheap, and tastes/smells great. Cons: I find it hard to apply, is slightly gritty due to the shea butter, and it has no gloss at all. (For a frame of reference: my favorite lip treatmeat of all time is The Body Shop's Cocoa butter stick). Overall, it's not bad and I would probably buy it again.
