I've loved these since I was young. My mother used to sell Avon products in the late '90s and she would order me these lip balms. On a whim, I was going through a catalog during Xmas and I asked for some of these. I got them and I was pleasantly surprised.
The lip balm is a bit on the greasy side (it has castor oil in it I believe... I don't have the package on hand) but it was smooth. I may be blinded by nostalgia but I love the fake flavoring and smell. If you don't like flavor, you'll hate this balm. Very flavored like the title suggests! Bubble gum is my favorite one.
The packaging is HORRENDOUS. The label peels halfway off when you peel it open instead of just the seal breaking off. I like my labels intact and this bothered me greatly. My sister always peels her labels off (she's odd about labels, she just hates them) so she didn't care!
The label appears to be the same design since the balm debuted- very retro fonts.
It leaves a light natural tint on the lips. I hate lip color - this is just enough for me. If you're looking for true tint, look elsewhere.
Would I buy again? Yes and no. No only because I rarely ever finish lip balm. I get distracted with other balms! Great stocking stuffers, gifts, etc. - especially for little girls!

I half like and half dislike this product. The main cons are they seem to dry out my lips, you need to reapply them several times a day, and I wish they smelled a bit less faky (though I do like the scent of it). The main pros were the nice little bit of color it gave my lips, the cheap price, and it wasn't sticky. I put I'd buy the product again, however it's more of a maybe than anything since I haven't really ventured too far into the world of lip products to find something that I really like.

This is a good chap stick, it does remind me a lot of those Lip Smackers. It moisturizes your lips, and leaves a nice tint to your lips. The scent is very nice. But, yes, I do find it has a plasticky cheap taste, but other than that, I like it.

I'm sorry to have to nix all of the glowing reviews for this particular product, because I was previously buoyed by what I'd read here, together with the equally rapturous reviews on Avon's website, and so I purchased numerous, different lip balms with a recent, online Avon order-this one being a part of those selections. Granted, I picked it up for under a buck, but still ... I'd even seen it compared with, and exalted higher than Smith's Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm, which is a staple of mine. To me, there is nil comparison between the two. On many different levels. The scent is achingly, tell-tale, fake plastic strawberries. Application texture and color is smeary, waxy and disintergrates easily, with a shade equivalency to a random red from out of a Crayola color box. I let my young daughter try it, and she was equally unimpressed.

I LOVE THESE! I've been using them since I was a teenager. They are great alone or under lipsticks I find too drying. I also mix them with lip pencil for my own version of long-wear lipcolor. Great flavors, too!

My holy grail tinted lip balm! And the perks are that it gives a nice natural flush color to your lips... just bitten/just kissed kind of color! Your lips but better - so it works with any skin tone because it's sheer! I love that it is a lip balm, but it has a tint so you don't have to apply it with a mirror! It's genius! I get why this is a cult favorite classic! Much better than the expensive tinted lip colors out there! The scent is great too! Very boyfriend friendly;) I think I have a dozen of these floating around. I love love love this product!

leaves my lips greasy but moisturized.not a strong enough scent and tastes nasty.

This is a great cheap chapstick. Its not sticky and it leaves my lips smooth. I don't think I would buy it again because it isn't the best I've used and I prefer a chapstick that makes my lips tingle. Ha.

PROS: Fabulous, delicious strawberry scent (reminds me of Lip Smackers!). Leaves a lovely tint on your lips. Very inexpensive.
CONS: Plasticky cheap taste. Not very cute packaging. Not long lasting, "thin" feeling. Not very moisturizing IMO, b/c it initially moisturizes but very quickly fades and leaves lips as dry or drier than before (I have REALLY REALLY dry lips, b/c of Accutane, and very few products really moisturize my lips. This isn't one of them, so I don't consider it to be truly moisturizing. However, on the average gal, this might work just fine).
Overall, I won't repurchase. I really wanted to like this product, esp w/all of the positive MUA reviews! But, Avon has plenty of other lip products that are moisturizing (Juice Gems in Mango Tango works great, actually!)

OMG! This brings me back. I wasn't allowed to wear much makeup as a teen, rightly so. I was allowed this and some mascara though. I used to grease my lips up with this stuff. I was a girl scout back then. I remember I loved he scent and flavor. It gave the slightest tint and was very shiny. Really moisturizing.

I love this lipbalm! I'm actually wearing it right now! I like the pleasant fruity smell and the little touch of color it gives to my lips. the formula is nice and keeps my lips moisturized. it's great!

I don't like this. I was expecting something better but the strawberry fraise smells exactly like Lip Smackers in Strawberry. It's cheaper than the lip smackers but still. I don't use this anymore and I'm pretty disappointed that it turned out to be not as great as I thought but..
the price is really cheap (about 63 cents on sale)
It moisturizes for the time being but after a bit, it seems to go away. Not something I would buy again.
Hope that helps!

This is a great lip gloss. I had no idea what a great buy this would be for 99 cents. This has a great scent and flavor. The Bubble Gum is also great. I have loved these since I was a teenager when everyone seemed to be using Avon products.

i got strawberry and cherry the smell and flavor is nice but i didnt like the rd stain it gave me i guess im not a red lip person it gives your lips gloss and smoothness i wont buy it again because i dont like the red tint if it gave me clear tint but with the smell and flavor id love it

I wanted to like this. It gives out nice color, has good staying power, not too sticky. Only gripe and the most important factor for me is that it's not moisturize enough my my super dry lips. Too bad...

This is my all time favorite lip balm. I have been using this for as long as I can remember. My mom use to get it for me when I was a little girl-so as far as i know-this was my first experience with any kind of makeupy product-and look at me now-haha. I have bought so many of these. They are only 99 cents! It tastes great and has a little hint of color to brighten. Great lipgloss. Will continue to buy forever!

I love this balm. It gives lips a nice, subtle tint. I love the smell and the texture is fabulous. It's actually moisturizing and makes your lips soft as opposed to just sitting on top of them like other balms do.

i got one since i was in highschool, the smell is great (i always buy lip balm in strawberry flavor! just love it) and is a bit shiny, which is great back to the day i didn't make-up much
and the taste, you have to taste it, it's sweet!!! (i know you shouldn't do that, but it's fun)
and it moisturizes too!
the price is just great

I'd definitely repurchase this when I run out! The tint that it gives me compliments my skin tone AND it is very moisturizing than my other lip balms! IT IS A DEFINITE PLUS that this thing doesn't break me out around my mouth! My lips looks so luscious! *I agree, though... this is something not for licking or sniffing!
