I have struggled for many years with chapped lips - as soon as the cold weather hits I am stuck with painful, bleeding, dry lips that only improve when summer comes round again.
I tried petroleum jelly, lanolin-containing treatments, chapsticks, all to no avail. I bought this thinking it would be the same as all the others, but I have been extremely pleasantly surprised. From now on this will be my lip treatment of choice.
It is amazing stuff - I put it on at night and the next morning my lips are soft and smooth. It really does solve the dryness and peeling, and I can't recommend it enough.
The texture is slightly more dense than other balms but this is why it works. Is is not like a sticky gloss (more like a thick balm) but it has a good shine. It is meant to be used as a treatment rather than an everyday gloss or balm, but to be honest I feel like every time I apply it I am doing something good for my lips.
It's slightly pricey but totally worth it.

I love this balm. I use it at night and by morning my lips are renewed!! Clinique did a great job with tis product. The only complaint is that you still feel a little residue when you wake up but it's still worth it. Makes your lips feel hydrated & plump. :) it's a little pricey for a small tube but it lasts for a long time. I've tried other lip balm treatments & always come back to this one.

i love this balm and clinique's lipstick. My lip is super sensitive and easy to get allergic. i have tried many lip treatments before and those make my lips get allergic. unlike others, it doesn't ruin my lip. this is my HG.

This is a pricey little lipbalm! That said, for someone who rarely had chapped lips and just wanted a conditioning lip treatment to slather on at night, this was perfection. Now I am on some medication for my acne, my lips are crazy super dry, and this just doesn't do the trick. But if you don't notice anything particularly bad about your lips and just want a nice treatment, this is lovely. It feels like it sort of sits on top of the lips at night, and I found it was still slightly there in the morning. It takes some getting used to using at night as it is pretty sticky. It is also wonderfully glossy so some days I put it over the top of any colour that needs a bit more moisture.
Like another reviewer, I find that these can turn to the most foul smelling lip balms ever. Even though it sits in a drawer next to my bed, and it's way too little product for it to be past it's use-by date, oh boy can it smell. I have found the same thing with clinique coloured superbalms as well. With this one, I was reluctant to throw it out, so I squeezed out a good long line of lip gloss onto a makeup wipe, and then wiped the top as well. That seemed to get me through the worst of it. I know a friend of mine has previously called clinique and they seemed to be aware of the problem. I already have a back up of this, but I don't know if I'd buy clinique superbalms just because of the awful garbage smell that it can turn to.
So on that note, it's a good lip balm if you don't have really chapped sore lips!

The main ingredient is petrolatum (Vaseline), so this seems very over-priced.

I love this lip gloss! It is a simple lip treatment that I have used for years to keep my lips in shape. It is clear, not too glossy, and it is very moisturizing. No matter how dry my lips get, I can apply this, and a little later my lips look fresh and soft again.

I got this when aquaphor, my old HG lip balm started giving me gross lip breakouts. I was looking for something similar without lanolin or lanolin alcohol both of which my skin seems to hate. This is a decent lip balm, it is thicker and stickier and doesn't moisturize quite as well as aquaphor but it does help with very chapped lips. It seems better as an occlusive layer than a moisturizer so sometimes at night I rub Cerave cream on my lips and seal it with superbalm. It is also very shiny for a balm and a little goes a long way. My main complaint is the tiny tube. For $14 I expect more than 0.25 oz. It looks like it belongs in one of Cliniques's bonus packages. I got the black honey tinted superbalm a few weeks after I tried this one and I was surprised that its twice as big and for only $1 more! It also seems a little more moisturizing than the plain one. I will repurchase but I'll stick with the tinted gloss versions

THE BEST LIP TREATMENT. Put it on before you fall asleep, wake-up with perfectly moist lips.

I bought this balm after getting a sample of Clinique's superbalm gloss; I figured if the gloss is so moisturizing, then the lip treatment must be awesome. It is awesome. I use it as night treatment and put some on in the morning before lipstick or gloss. Like many other lip balms, I can tell that there must be some drying effects because I *need* to use this everyday. Nonetheless, if lips are really dry, this can help with exfoliating the flakes, by rubbing them off while wearing this balm. Overall, I would buy this again, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are more effective balms out there; in the meantime this meets my needs.
