After reading the excellent reviews on this I just had to give it a try! I'm yet to use this as a nighttime treatment but so far it has kept my lips totally moisturised throughout the day.
I don't suffer from extremely dry lips but since I've been wearing lipsticks over the winter, my lips tend to dry up and flake a lot more. I've noticed that if I've put on a lipstick before work, by midday my lips are in shocking condition. I end up removing all lipstick before lunch and just stick to pawpaw or one of those Nivea lip balms for the rest of the day. And I constantly need to reapply those. With this, I you need a tiny little bit and you only need to apply it once. That's it!! I'm loving the texture too. It's a lot smoother than pawpaw and doesn't feel slimy/oily like Vaseline. It smells delicious and doesn't feel heavy on the lips.
Downside for a lot of people: it is on the pricey side. However, I've learnt that if something works, I don't really mind spending that little bit more. I've spent so much money on cheaper alternatives and I always end up regretting it. The way I see it, you pay 11 dollars here in Australia for a giant tub of pawpaw. And because you're reapplying, it goes a lot faster. Pay the extra 8 dollars and you could get something better. So don't hesitate!! Buy it! Your lips will love you for it.

This lip balm has amazingly cute packaging and a really lovely colour. It's got a very faint pinkish tint so it makes your lips look really cute.
On the downside though, I found it to be a tad sticky (so annoying on windy days when your hair gets stuck to your lips). In addition to that, while it WAS moisturising, it wasn't quite as good as products like lucas' paw paw ointment or blistex.
Overall, I'd stick to other products if my lips need serious moisturising but having said that, this product is perfect for finishing off a look and adding shine to your lips.

Love this! This is the best lip balm, hands down. I can put this on my super dry lips at night and wake up with them soft and smooth. It's a thick balm that is a sheer pink color (color doesn't show on lips). It is kind of expensive, but 100% worth it to me!

Pleasant to use without excessive smell or unbearable sticky feeling some lip products have. Leave lips comfortable throughout the night.

This lip balm stays on my lips through the whole night and when I wake up in the morning I can still feel it on. It is very hydrating and unless I find something even better, it is now a staple of my night routine. Though the price might deter some (understandably) I definetly recommend this product.

This product is made to be put on lips before bed to improve them over night. It stays on for a long time and its always still on when I wake up in the morning.
It's towards the pricey end for lip balms but you don't need to apply much and it lasts for ages. I really like the texture, its really nice, smooth and creamy on. I bought this because I had REALLY bad dry, cracked lips at the time and after using this for 2-3 days (re-applying whenever I needed it throughout the day too) my lips were back to normal. I will be buying this again.

Just bought my second one of this product. Absolutely adore it. I used it all throughout the winter, right before I go to bed, and I didn't have chapped lips once! This product will last you pretty long, depending on how much and how often you use it. Some people might consider it as quite expensive for a lipbalm but it truly makes your lips soft and smooth, whereas most lipbalms will put a glossy layer on your lips but don't do anything other than that. Well worth it's money!

I'll admit that I did not have high hopes for Kiss Me Tonight. While I like Philosophy's product line in theory, very few of their products actually live up to the hype. I was kind of desperate when I bought this because my lips were extremely chapped so much so that my bottom lip was splitting and bleeding. Not pretty and painful as all get out. I very rarely get chapped lips but when I do, it takes a miracle to heal them.
The first time I used this, I applied it before bed (as instructed, I believe). The texture surprised me because it is very soothing and smooth instead of thick and greasy. I figured most of it would be wiped off while I thrashed about in my sleep but surprisingly, I could still feel it on my lips when I woke up the next morning. The splitting on my bottom lip had also stopped hurting and was nearly healed. The rest of my mouth felt super soft and smooth. Since that time, I have experienced a few bouts of majorly chapped lips and Kiss Me Tonight never fails to heal them right up. This really does work overnight! As for smell, I detect a vague bit of vanilla but the balm has no taste. While this is marketed as "intense", it's not super greasy and it doesn't just sit on top of your lips. It sort of sinks in at some point but it still makes its presence know.
While this is an awesome lip balm, there are a few downsides. One, it's a tad on the expensive side. I think it is regularly sold for $20 but the amount you get will last quite a long time unless you decide to slather it on your body (and why would you?). Two, it is housed in a jar which means you either have to use your finger or a lip brush for application. Some people find the old dipping-fingers-in-the-jar to be icky and unhygienic but since I only use this at bedtime and don't carry it around with me for mid-day use, I don't mind dipping a clean finger in the tub. The jar itself is the typical plastic variety that Philosophy uses for just about all their products. Pretty sturdy and basic.
Overall, this is one of the better Philosophy products that actually lives up to the hype - or at least their own product description. This balm is intense and it does deliver which makes the $20 price tag a little easier to deal with. I haven't found anything cheaper that is as comfortable to wear or heals as quickly so I would likely buy it again.

If you have very, very dry lips like I do, and struggled to find a chapstick/balm that would last, you have to give this product a try.
I tried so many balms, and great ones: Sugar, Burt Bees, Aquaphor even. Aquaphor gave me a strange reaction, and every other balm I've ever used in life only kept my lips moisturized for a few hours at a time.
I read that some women had tried this balm not just as a nightly treatment, but throughout the day. And wow, this is the only balm that's ever worked for me. I couldn't be more pleased with it (ignoring the price tagó but hey, it's worth it.)

Okay so I have a very bad habit of biting my lips when they are dry...ofcourse further aggravating the situation (shame on me) . Anyways a friend of mine told me to try this and I am so glad I did. I prefer this to the Sugar brand lip balms ( which are more expensive and melt like crazy--- maybe the weather here?). I have been using this as a night treatment and honestly my lips haven't looked better. It moisturizers well and my fine lines are less visible. Effective + decently priced = repurchase . =)
