I really wanted to like it... The color is nice, rosy pink with shimmer. I expected it to be hydrating as most tints and balms, but it's applied awfully if you have dry or chapped lips and it is not moisturizing at all. It also gives some tingling/cooling sensation (like peppermint), which I personally don't like.

I picked this up on a whim when I saw it on clearance at a grocery store, and I quite like it. Bloom is a sheer, shimmery mauve-pink. It offers some mineral sun protection, moisturizes my lips, and adds a bit of color. Because of the sheerness, the color is easy to wear, though I wish it was a bit less shimmery. Overall, though, I'm glad I bought it.

Absolute favorite go to tinted lip balm. The minty flavor is a nice treat and is very refreshing. The color is a nice, soft, neutral pink that just livens up my natural pale pink lips and gives them more oomph. The shade of this tint is similar to the gloss. I don't see the difference that the previous reviewer mentions. This stuff is moisturizing, free of harmful chemicals, lasts a long time, and is relatively cheap. Staple product!

I wound up liking the Alba Terra Gloss in Bloom better than the Terra Tint in bloom. Perhaps because the tint is thicker and in this color went on a little lighter in color/ chalkier. It is a very pigmented lipstick like lip balm. Very nice texture and minty flavor. Similar color to the gloss but this is a bit more brown/ taupier.
