Dont care for the scent....not anything special. Prefer the infinity cream or moisture stick for my lips over this

I read a couple of other usersí reviews and generally agree with what most people have already written before:
Cons: Packaging--not a huge fan of how it's in a pot. Digging it out with fingers is not exactly super hygienic. Price - $18, but what else do you expect for a premium cosmetic? Itís slightly cheaper than my other favorite lip product: Fresh Sugar lip balm w/ SPF15
Pros: Aside from the packaging and price, the reason why Iím rating this product a 4 is because it has restored the fullness of my lips. I have pretty full lips, and due to my lack of negligence, have started noticing a significant amount of fine lines/shriveled up look. Not exactly attractive, but I found just by applying a little bit of this treatment before I go to bed at night, I wake up to full, luscious lips. Lines have been significantly reduced, if not disappeared. Love, love, love! Will definitely be buying again in the future!

This was a disappointment. I love the smell and taste (like green apple). The packaging is cute but impractical. The biggest issue is the fact that it's really light and has no staying power. It'll last about 30-45 minutes just sitting on lips- no eating, drinking, etc. I gave this to my husband, and he seems to like it, but I won't repurchase.

Since the temperature dip in my area my lips have been struggling. I keep myself super hydrated so health isnt a concern. So in sheer desperation I picked this up in Sephora. I figured if it doesnt work out my 13 year old will have another lippie to add to her collection. So I applied it right before bed. It has a faint sweet smell but no flavor. The next morning I woke up and a little of it still remained on my lips. My lips werent dry or irritated at all. I'm going on day 3 with it and its still performing great. Despite the high price for something so minor I will definitely re-purchase again.

I am obsessive about moisterizing my lips and love to try new products. Product goes on glossy and that's pretty but it's extrememly drying. In one day, this product sucked the moisture out of my lips and they are dried and cracked. As soon as I went back to my old Smith's Rosebud Salve, my lips were back to normal. Would not recommend or buy this product again. Returning my purchase to Sephora today.

The smell is really good I can't tell what it is but it's interesting and it looks so pretty on the lips. It's suppose to be a treatment but it only hydrates it for maybe 15 minutes and it doesn't fix the flakes on my lips. It's very expensive for something that does not hydrate as good as Chapstick. Packaging is cute but very unhygienic if you're gonna dip your fingers in there. I stopped using it and I'm just using Chapstick and maybelline's baby lips.

I loved this at first. I've never felt my lips so soft and silky before and I've tried a TON of lip products! It's smells lovely and even though it's not tinted it does seem to give my lips a cute pinkish look but that may be due to how well it moisturizes. After 15 minutes or so though, it fades pretty quickly and I have to keep reapplying. The packaging is cute but doesn't travel well. I leave it on my night night and it looks adorable up there, lol. But for the price I don't think I'd repurchase. So far my very favorite is the Fresh Sugar lip balm.

This came as part of a kit--I wouldn't have purchased it on its own due to the price. The treatment applies smoothly and smells nice. Taste isn't bad either. It definitely softens my lips. I love that it's natural/organic! I'm taking off points for the pricing: $18 is a little steep for a lip balm. I'm also taking off points for the packaging: the magic pot looks cute but a tube or a flatter top would make it easier to transport. It's really worth 3.5 lippies but since I'm a Josie Maran fan I'll give it the extra half-lippy to round it to 4.

I love this stuff, and previously I didn't believe in spending more than a couple dollars for everyday lip moisture. It feels great and has a fresh aroma to it. Youcanwear as a bit of brightening out or just at home. I just wish it weren't in that pot as I dislike digging around in a pot. Would prefer a tube. I love that it's natural argan oil as well.

I received this as part of a kit in "Love" and let me preface, that I am pretty cynical about lip balms. I have about a million open at any one time and none seem to do the 'ahmazing' things they promise. Well, this one actually does, although it has a few drawbacks I'll get into.
Pros-really plumping and conditioning (I put it on after not putting on any lip balm for 2 weeks and my lips looked great in 15 minutes), organic, nice subtle flavor, little bit of sparkle but not obnoxious
Cons-packaging seems cute at first, but is really annoying. can't pull it out and reapply, and seem to always get the top smushing down into the lip gloss if not careful, expensive ($18 for a little pot?!)

Super cute packaging and I love how it looks sitting on my vanity. The product itself is lacking though :/ It feels nice and light once applied, but then fades pretty quickly and needs to be reapplied often to keep lips moisturized. The green apple scent is nice and light, not overly artificial like other green apple scented products which give me a fierce headache. I wish that it stayed on longer and did a better job of hydrating the lips, Will use it up since it's all natural but won't buy it again. Wish it had SPF as well..

Great Smell.. Fades quickly.. Very moisturizing at first.. but fades after 30minutes (or so) and makes lips feel dry. I recommend any of the JACK BLACK lip balms. SUPER hydrating.. variety of smell/flavors and spf15! Does not leave lips dry ever! :)

I bought this product when argan oil and the Josie Maran line was becoming popular at Sephora. The pot that it comes in is cute, but not all that functional because if you aren't careful with how you put the lid on, you can mush it into the product.
I agree with other reviewers in that it smells nice and feels nice for a while. There is a good slip to the lips after I apply but it seems to wear off quickly, without leaving much moisture behind. I am constantly searching for a great lip product, so I understand if you have to try this, but I'd say...save your money.

Got this as part of a set, not impressed at all with its mosturizing abililites. The packaging is cute but bulky, would not be able to put in make up bag or pocket. Then when I apply it, it smells great and feels good for about a minute, then it disappears. Really, nothing special at all
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
The packaging is super cute and it smells great, but that is where the good review ends. The packaging is annoying to be honest because lip product should be in a stick form. Second, the whole benefit to the product is supposedly the argan oil, but you can just apply it directly to your lips in the pure form. No need to add it to something else and call it a lip balm in a fancy pot.

This stuff is great----for the first 5 minutes. It smells like a delicious green apple, and feels very moisturizing on the lips. However, it fades right off in a matter of a few minutes. Therefore, I would NOT repurchase. I prefer the Fresh Sugar lip treatment -- that actually lasts for me.

I absolutely love it. It has incredible moisturizing power and a pleasant, fresh scent.

I love it and honestly I am trying very hard to get away from using jar lip products, due to my profession. That is my biggest complaint about it -the packaging. I only use this as a bedtime treatment right before I crawl into bed. Unlike the reviewer below, I love the smell/taste and that was the first thing that appealed to me about it. I agree that it is very green apple. The biggest surprise about this product for me is not the moisture, although I like that too. For some odd reasons, it adds more "pinkness" to my lips making them look more youthful. I cannot explain exactly how it does that because it is colorless. I dunno - maybe it's just me.

The only thing stopping me from buying this again is the "green apple" smell. It doesn't appeal to me at all!
The product itself is nice. It has the consistency of a cream/gel and a little goes a long way! It's not the most moisturizing lip treatment I've ever tried, but my lips didn't feel dry while wearing this. And there was a noticeable change in the softness of my lips! I tried this when my lips were a little dry, but not chapped. If you don't mind green apple smells then I would suggest trying this. I bought mine at Sephora.
