The balm itself has a nice consistency, makes my lips feel soft and smooth, but I *hate* the smell - tacky/cheap smell of coconut - which genuinely makes me regret buying this.

This is a "lip butter balm" tub that contains 9g of product and is �6 in the UK drugstores.
First off, I am pleasantly surprised at the nice smell of this lip balm. Unlike other S&G products I have tried, with overpowering smells, this has a light coconut scent, very pleasant.
The consistency of this is waxy, a bit like the Carmex or Blistex balms in a tub. This means it doesn't move around on your lips as much, which I like, and makes it good for under other lip products like lipstick!
However, and the reason I give it 3 lippies, it is not very moisturising. After about an hour, the effect goes and you have to reapply, and my lips are not left noticeably more moisturised than before. In fact this product doesn't really make them softer at all.
For �6 this is a rather expensive lip balm, so I'd expect it to perform better. To be clear though, I don't dislike it, and I really like the smell, so I might repurchase when I run out, if I feel like splurging on a balm.
EDIT Aug'13: Now that it's summer, this balm has softened a bit and is really lovely to use! I find it more moisturising than before, so I have upped the rating to a 4.
