At first I thought this stuff was way too oily. But then I started applying it nightly before bed - voila! My lips actually becam silkier and the rough skin that usually accumulates around my lipline vanished. Eureka! This can feel kind of thin and oily so I usually layer it on top of l/s during the day to improve wear. The coconut scent is light but to me it didn't smell artificial at all. The Papaya scent is also nice.
I love the bodyshop body butters, and I love the smell of coconut, so I was excited to try this. What can I say, eh, it's ok. The scent is definitely yummy, but my lips sometimes feel a little strange when this is on, almost irritated. It's a little waxy, almost seems to dry up rather than absorp. Won't repurchase.
I thought the smell was great and yummy in the beginning. After a few weeks of using it, I am getting really sick of the smell. I have to take breaks from using it so that the smell doesn't make me sick.
It is pretty mositurizing and the taste & texture of it isn't too bad.
I gave this a 4, because I usually HATE coconut, but I really like this stuff. It's smooth, and it smells a bit like sunscreen. :)
The drawback is that I usually don't like balms in a pot, and if you aren't careful, this turns your lips a tiny bit white.
Otherwise, it's great. Although, the Shea smells kind of similar, and deposits no color. But, I think I actually like Coconut best.
Well, I want to recommend this, but I don't feel like it's really the best advice. Personally, I LOVE the smell and I even appreciate its subtle sheen (very natural--not shiny, just sort of moist looking), but it does NOT moisturize at all. And yet, it doensn't chap my lips and the smell is just so pleasant that I think I might actually repurchase it, at least until I find another coconut lip balm. Any suggestions???
Eh. Don't know how I feel about these. I have so many lips balms it is hard to use all of them, but I might use this one if I have absolutely nothing left. I LOVE the smell, but I found it is sort of tough to scrape it out of the pot, and unless you rub it in really well, it sort of looks white and cakey on your mouth.
If you take the extra time to make sure it is all nice and rubbed in, the results are worth it because you will have super shiny lips.
The downside? They are super greasy too. A good-before-bed lip balm maybe.
I admit that when these first came out I wasn't crazy about them. However, while out shopping recently I wandered into TBS and decided to try them out.
I really fell in love with the Coconut because of the amazing scent. It adds a nice shine to my lips and really does a great job of moisturizing. It doesn't leave a film on my lips at all. They were having a sale on these so I grabbed two! :o)
This really isn't bad. The scent is ok, but it can get really annoying after a couple weeks. I use it every day before bed and its only use is to go on my lips before bed, I don't expect anything else of it. Its really not a great gloss.
The packaging of this product is just like the body butters but smaller. The coconut smells heavenly, but when I applied it, it was cakey on my lips and left a whitish tint if I applied too much. It doesn't moisturizing very well at all. I only gave it a three because of the scent. It also is extremely sensitive to temperature. It melted very easily and got really hard when it was below fifty degrees.
I really like this lip balm. It didn't leave any white residue on my lips, and it's fairly moisturizing. The smell is delicious! I took one Lipstick off for the packaging. Having to stick your finger into it everytime isn't too hygenic and makes the smell change eventually - so this will just be an after shower product for me!
