I've only bought this once because of the price $7.50. But I really loved this! I wouldn't recommend if your lips get really chapped and dry, or if they crack and bleed. This isn't potent enough for that. But its the only lip balm I've used that makes my lips baby soft and supple, and I've tried a lot of lip balms. The smell is great, it smells like lemon but it has a sweet side to it. Taste like lemon as well but also with a sweet side with no tartness. It gives a nice little shine to the lips. Within having this I notice the black letters on the tube wear off after a little while. My only complaints are I wish it had SPF in it and it was cheaper. When I have the money I love purchasing this.

LOVE the taste and smell of this product. Those are the only things I look for in lip products. I absolutely love lemon scented products and the fact that is tastes just as good makes it my HG lip product. It's lightweight, sheer, and soft. The only cons are that the stick of balm does eventually lean or break b/c it's so soft, but I don't care b/c it's a great product! A little pricey, but BBW usually has a buy 2 get one free deal with their lip stuff.

Best lip balm EVER. It tastes like lemonade and keeps my lips moisturized throughout the day. I find myself reapplying just to taste it, lol!

On my 2nd tube, but running down to the nub... Gonna have to start digging it out :) i love this lip balm
This is really emollient, and soft, and i guess "greasy", i love the slippy feel of it, its really light weight on the lips, and gives off a kissable sheen to it ;)
The wear time is alright... Last all night on my lips, but during the day it lasts less than 2 hours, but im Ok with that...
Because im always constantly putting on lipbalm anyway.
The packaging is cute and has a cheery yellow color and its overall cute but impractical... The tube itself is too large for the actual product, and here is the doozy, because of it being soft and the tube being large, it tends to smush, lean, scrape, and whatever it likes to do when feels like it
Ive had to remold it several times
The first time being when i was acting like an idiot and trying replicate it into a lipstick, *plopped right off*...
Any how as long as you dont do anything stupid like me you should be fine
One other downside is that it contains no spf... But i love this little beauty!!
I WILL BUY THIS AGAIN AND AGAIN

I bought this absurdly expensive product because I was beguiled by the scent...
It does smell and taste very good, I must admit. But not worth the price, especially since it's not even an adequate lip balm.
I feel like it's not very moisturizing, or rather, it doesn't absorb well. I feel like it just sits on my lips and creates an annoying oily/glossy sheen that I'm not too fond of. Maybe if you prefer the gloss, it's an added benefit, but I'd rather something less conspicuous. Also, I find myself needing to reapply every half hour or so because it dries and leaves my lips feeling unpleasant.
On the other hand, the little tube thing is cute, I guess.......

This is a good product. It smells like the sweetest lemon zest, almost like lemonade bottled into a lip balm tube. It feels great on your lips, but sort of has a waxy feel to it. I will admit, it is not the most longest lasting moisturizer. If I put this on my lips before bed, I do find sometimes that I have to reapply in the middle on the night if I wake up and my lips are dry. Another thing that I don't care for is that it is incredibly soft, perhaps too soft. The reason I say this is because it leans, leans, leans. No matter how low you wind the balm down, it still has this awkward leaning thing going on and I often times find myself having to readjust it with my fingers which is not good, because you have to be very gentle with it or it will break off or completely fall apart and melt in your hands. I don't think there is a lot of product either. As others have stated the packaging is huge but when you really get into the actual balm it's a lot smaller. I got this as a free gift with a coupon from BBW. I'm glad I did because otherwise I would have never gotten this because it is $7.50 and that is entirely too much money for a lip balm.

This is my favorite lip balm! It tastes and smells great, and the moisture lasts. It feels really nice on, and it's moisturizing without being greasy. The packaging is a little bit awkward because the lip balm is a lot skinnier in the tube, and there are a total of 3 different tubes holding the lip balm. The letters also rubbed off, so now I just have a suspicious looking yellow tube. It's okay though, because packaging doesn't really matter to me. Overall, it's worth paying a few extra dollars for and it's the ideal lip balm.

Incredible lip balm, got mine off ebay.
Pros: Smells and tastes delicious, very smooth on the lips & actually works.
Cons: A bit expensive for a balm, the writing rubs off very easily and the tube is bigger than the actual balm stick and each time i apply the balm moves around the tube which is annoying and my last one broke off :(
Definately buy it again though!

This is my HG lip balm product. It was rec'd to me two years ago because I was using the Mentha lip shine but it was burning my lips because they get so dry and cracked, and then I end up getting cold sores. My lips were a hot mess when I went in there looking for something new, and the SA told me to try it out. WOW. I have tried homemade lip balms, EOS, everything and I always come back to this. I love the way it makes my lips feel, even when they're sore. I have a special tube I use just for when I get cold sores to keep it moisturized so it doesn't crack worse that I apply with a cotton swab to keep it uncontaminated for the future.
My only complaint is that it's kind of expensive and really, unless it's Christmas (yay Twisted Peppermint!) or the semi-annual sale (because I tend to like disco'd C,O. products like the Cucumber tonic or the Extra Light face lotion, and I stock up on Wallflowers then) BABW coupons don't really apply to me throughout the year, and I go through a tube a month and in winter about a tube biweekly. I wish it was about half the price it is, but totally worth it for how well it works on my lips.

The lemon smell and flavour are very strong, and it hydrates well enough (though can feel heavy). Leaves a nice gloss.
If you don't mind using lip balms that contain petrolatum, you probably won't have a problem with this. I like the shape and look of the tube, too, but it's also bulky and the cap doesn't feel secure enough to qualify it as something I'd keep in my purse everywhere I go.
I liked it okay, but don't think the price (mine was approx. $7 at Bath & Body Works) is worth it, since it contains mostly chemical ingredients and doesn't last very long.
I wouldn't mind getting another tube as a gift or something, but it's not an indispensable product for me and I have no plans to buy another.

LOVE how this feels on my lips - smooth, soft, moisturized. Much better than those DS brands... and I've tried them all. Wouldn't work too well as a lipstick base though, much better for nighttime. Unfortunately, the writing rubs off VERYY easily, so I now have a sketchy looking yellow tube with a black bottom in my bag :/ Also pretty pricey for a lip balm, but I still love it(:

This is my HG lipbalm, and I adore it very, very much. I went through a phase where I was obsessed with finding the perfect lipbalm and bought ridiculous amounts of every brand I could think of, trying to find my HG. This definitely ended that search.

I love this stuff! I have the Lemon Lip Cream too and I find it to be a bit too thin so it's sort of mess to apply out of the tube. But this stuff I love. It is very soft, so it is kind of delicate. That doesn't bother me too much because I love it so much, the lemony taste and scent and the ultra soft texture of the product. It melts on my lips and makes them feel super soft.
THIS IS WAY BETTER than the OVERRATED EOS Lemon Lip Balm.
The price doesn't bother me because BBW is always having sales on their lip products.

I like the smooth texture of this; not waxy or glossy, but kind of in between the two.
The scent is very much like fresh lemon rinds, but the flavor is sweet.
On a moisturizing scale, I'd say its above average, but doesn't blow me out of the water. I picked this up because its lemony, and it was on sale. Otherwise, its pricey. But B&B often has sales on their lip products.

I LOVE THIS LIP BALM! Usually most lip balms I've tried don't last very long on me or they accentuate the lines on my lips even more, but this one leaves my lips smooth as butter. It also tastes great, and I think the tube it comes in is pretty cute. Only downside is that in my Bath and Body Works, a tube is about 8 dollars, which is really expensive for just a lip balm.

This lip balm has made my lips so soft and smooth. I originally bought it because I loved the lemon flavor. When I lick my lips I get a slight shock of sour and then it tastes really sweet. It smells really refreshing too.
It glides on very smoothly and it sinks into my lips very quickly for fast treatment. It lasts a long time, but since I enjoy licking it off my lips I have to reapply often. There is a huge difference between the texture of my lips when it's on and when it's off. With out this balm my lips become hard and flaky, but when I put it on it immediately becomes soft and smooth. I just love it!
As an added note, I prefer the lemon lip balm over the lemon lip gloss because the gloss doesn't really last long so you end up using up the product faster.

This is my dh's favorite lip balm, so I always keep spares around the house. I originally bought it for me, but I'm not a fan of sweetened lip balms. I do like the lemon scent, and I do occasionally keep a tube for myself. It's moisturizing, but we live in place that's extremely cold and windy in the winter. It's not moisturizing enough for me then, but it does work well for dh.
The packaging is fairly hefty, considering how much product you actually get. So, I'm not thrilled with how much space it takes up in a purse or pocket compared with regular lip balm.
It's also fairly expensive for the amount of product you get ($7 full price). But if you buy when there's a special of some kind, it's not quite so bad.

I am not really a huge fan flavored lip balm but I was so sick of plain chaptstick I wanted to try something different so I decided to pick this up because u had a bnbw giftcard. I actually love it! It's not thick or greasy and leaves my lips soft and moisturized. It is a bit slick so i wouldn't recomend using this directly before applying lipstick or colored lip gloss because it tends to make the color smear. other than that i live it! It's smells lovely and tastes amazing( lemony yet minty and not over powering). As much as I like it, I don't think it is worth 7$ only because you don't get much product so I would only repurchase this if there was a sale. But if u are willing to pay 7$ for a small bit of a great product it is worth the buy.

Does this moisturize? Sorta. If I really pile it on, rub my lips together, and am careful not to lick my lips at all, including on the inside, it's a decent balm. If I apply a thin coat, it does nothing. Lip Smackers work better, and come in flavours I like better than artificially sweetened lemonade. The package is annoying - the balm is too soft for the swivel mechanism, so it's always slightly pushed over to one side, and the almost full-length cap is harder to wrangle off than a regular lip balm tube. I would use this up if given it as a gift or freebie, but wouldn't spend my own money on it again.

I love this balm! Scent and texture-wise, this is almost a dupe for Fresh's sugar lip treatment, except it doesn't have spf. However, at $7.50 (or quite often, 3 for $15), this is much cheaper than the Fresh sugar lip treatment. I do like the c.o. bigelow glosses, but I also love balms (and lemon) so I was so excited to try this and it didn't let me down at all. It is quite a soft balm, not waxy or hard at all, and I could see it melting in the heat (the same thing can happen with the Fresh one), but it slicks onto lips so easily and feels great on. I will definitely be buying more when I run out. I wish they would come out with even more flavors!
