I have several of the CO Bigelow lip balms and adore them all! I have the original lemon, the blueberry/lemon and the raspberry/lemon. Aside from them being nice and moisturizing, the scent is outstanding on all of them and beats anything unscented/unflavored. The lasting power on these is decent but could be better, that being my only complaint. The price is a bit high if you buy it at regular price .. but I scored most of mine during the semi annual sale, and for $3.75 a pop .. well worth it for me!

Got ths during the bbw semi annual sale. It is a very cute little gloss, the tube is dark blue with the typical C.O. Bigelow writing on it. It smells great, taste good, and is a good moisturizer to help maintain moisture in your lips. If you have severely dry lips that are cracking you may need something stronger. However, for a everyday moisture maintainer this is great.

I love these. Why are they being discontinued? They make my lips so soft and the flavor is awesome so I don't mind reapplying. These have no color, the packaging is adoreable.

This is the Lemonade Stand Antioxidant-Infused Lip Balm in "Lemon & Blueberry." It also comes in the flavor "Lemon & Black Cherry." One tube consists of .13oz of 100% natural lemon & blueberry balm. How much product you get in this tube seems around average for a standard tube of lipstick, however, it's just lip balm, and you pay $7.50 for it. For me, this is pretty pricey.
It tastes of lemon and blueberry, though I think mainly lemon, a tangy but sweet lemon. I could taste a little something of blueberry, but it was faint.
It smells quite good. I wasn't sure of it at first, but I'd haul'ed in a lot of different smelling items that day and just wasn't smelling it accurately. It does very much smell like sweet blueberry mixed with a slightly stronger scent of lemon. It's very nice.
It feels slick, not at all very waxy.It glides on so nicely, though, so while it may not be one of my longer lasting balms, it's one that feels fairly nice. Personally, it's not thin, despite it being slick. You'll still feel its ever so slight "tackiness" when your lips meet.
It moisturizes well. When it wears from my lips, my lips feel like they've been moisturized, unlike some other balms I've tried in the past (many Bonne Bell, unfortunately).
I also quite like the packaging. It somehow feels quaint, though in a good way. The signature C. O Bigelow label and its distinct font style, lipstick-like design with the large, smooth twist on the base to twist the product up (I'm used to tin pots or tubes of chapstick with the thin, ridged screw). I also like this solid, creamy blue that reminds me of an Urban Outfitters nail polish. It's stylish in a very fun, simple way. I really appreciate it.
While this is not at all a disappointing purchase, I don't feel amazed by what this does for me, either. I was amazed by Palladio's Herbal Tinted Lipbalm, despite how I absolutely hate the smell. But this balm does have a very nice taste and smell, and its moisturizing quality is quite satisfactory. I think if I had the money again, I'd like to definitely try the "Lemon & Black Cherry" flavor. But I won't die if I don't find a way to purchase this again.
