Okay, being perfectly honest here, some of you might not like to hear this, but it's true. And totally atests to the power of this stuff. The first time I ever tried this product, a crack head gave it to me. Seriously. She was the sister of this guy I was sort of seeing a few years ago. She bought a pack that had two of these in it so she gave me one. She was telling me how it's her favorite lip gloss and as she's talking I'm checking out her lips. Smoking crack can totally wreck your lips. Burn then, cut them, all sorts of nasty stuff. But hers actually looked great which was apparently because of this lip stuff. I didn't have that sort of extreme lip situation going on but I was on sort of a vacation at the time and didn't have a proper SPF lip product with me so I was really happy she gave me one of these. I liked the sleek white tube. And vanilla has been my trademark scent for years so that was a brilliant bonus. And we were spending quite a bit of time in the sun those days so this stuff probably saved my lips. It has sort of a slight tingly feeling that goes away after a while. So it's not a big deal. I find it pleasant, anyway. It has a lovely smell/flavour that isn't overpowering. This stuff isn't quite like other lip glosses or balms. It just feels different. It soaks in, is what's going on - guess. That tingling, it feels like it's actually getting into your lips. After a while, when the top layer wears off, your lips are still soft and smooth. I can get away with applying this stuff just once before I go out somewhere. And if I'm using it daily, at least once a day, it does start to make a very noticable change to the state of my lips. They don't get chapped at all and hardly even feel dry. I've bought this a couple times since that initial tube I was given. I don't really seek out SPF products, nor do I feel the need to, I wouldn't have the patients for the trial-and-error, so this is forever my go-to sunscreen lip product. I love how the slim tube fits into my purse or even the clutch my Fast Flats are in, love throwing it in there for a night out. Surprisingly, that small tube lasts longer than you would think. For the price, this is a good deal. I keep an eye out for those double packs so I can maybe pass this gem on to someone else, too. :) If you don't want to screw around looking for an SPF lip product this summer, do your self - and your lips! - a big favour, just pick up some SoftLips. Problem solved! If it worked for her.....

Feels very silky and a nice scent, but does not actually improve my lips long term.

Softlips are just amazing!!! That's all I really need to say. They make your lips supple soft and actually make them feel cold because of the boiled down sugary alcohol

this product is the most amazing thing i ever tried-it made my lips so smooth and felt really light. it didnt feel waxy or heavy on my lips at all. would repurchase:)

Terrible! This makes my lips so dry, chapped and cracked. It's disgusting. I'll stick to my Blistex!

This is one expensive drugstore lip balm... I normally see these at around $4-5CAD (and it's only two grams!), but I try to get them in the packs of two at Walmart for a better deal. I do like the slim, sleek look, however. I have this in both Vanilla and Strawberry Sherbet... The vanilla one smells like cupcakes! As for the Strawberry Sherbet, it has a sweet scent that smells synthetic, but not unpleasant. Upon application, the product feels moisturizing, and there's also a cool, refreshing sort of tingle (like when you use tea tree oil or Noxzema), but the staying power isn't the best. It also tastes funny, but not as bad as the Blistex lip balms (ick!). I do like that it has SPF, and that it doesn't leave a whitish cast, but I wish that it offered better UVA protection (you can search up the various sunscreen charts that are floating around). A little protection is better than none at all, though, so this will be my go-to lip sunscreen until I find something better!

This is an okay lip balm . I normally use the Burt's bees one ( the minty one ) but I decided to get this one . It does offer moisterization to my lips , it smells nice , and the packaging is nice and small , but I'm always reapplying , and I feel like it leaves a gritty texture on my lips . It also makes them peel abit . I would not buy this again .

I always loose this lipbalm because of the size. I keep having to buy a new one again. It moisturises my lips. I'm not incredibly keen on the smell of french vanilla. It's worth what it is. I think i would probably try a different product.
Pros- Price, Moisturises and SPF 15
Cons- Smell, Size
Overall- I wouldn't recommend it but it's not that bad as a product.

I bought this the other day to try it. It felt smooth on my lips but it left this awful soapy bitter taste at the back of my throat. and although the packaging is cute, its kind of small.....i dont think i will buy this again.

I love softlips! They really do give me softlips ;). It doesn't give a waxy thick feeling like chapstick did. Softlips absorbs well and I like the tingly feeling when first applied. The packaging is cute but I use them up quick because it's a thin stick. I don't mind though because they are so inexpensive.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Really like this! My one is SPF 20 though.
Smells just like carmex but more vanilla-ish.
Has a tingly feeling upon application, but that does disappear after about 5 minutes. I like the fact that it's in a skinny tube, easier to fit into pockets/small bags etc.
It only contains 2g of actual product but considering it's less than £2, that's not an issue.
Feels creamy, doesn't leave that much of a noticable shine on lips, sinks in quick and leaves your lips hydrated.
However it did leave a faint white cast on my lips and I do need to keep reapplying as it wears off pretty quickly.
Will prob repurchase cause they're so cheap and have decent SPF.

This smells great. Seriously, I never care about a product's fragrance but this smells so good that I would eat it if I could. This lip balm goes on very creamy and makes my lips feel very soft but it doesn't really moisturize. In fact, after wearing it, my lips feel drier after the initial creamy feeling.

I own 6 softlips, so you can basically tell I like them. These are my favorite lip balm ever, and I'm a lip balm junkie. These are insanely cheap and all smell amazing. I really like the packaging they are slim and easy to shove into a pocket. My lips are really dry usually, so these help me out a TON. The French Vanilla flavor is my favorite. Overall, these are amazing and I love them.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Love this! Can really feel it working. Soft vanilla smell. Packaging is so cute, slimline great for travel and popping in your bag on the go. Left lips moisturised and has SPF, worth the extra pennies than your standard Nivea/ Chapstick balm.

I have a tube of SoftLips in every pocket and purse. It's not too waxy, not overly scented, and it seems to really work to keep my lips from getting chapped. Definitely an HG item for me.

The things I liked about this product was its nice vanilla scent and its small, convenient packaging. However, it doesn't feel waxy but it does wear off about 5 minutes after each use so you will have to keep reapplying. But the only major problem I had with this lip balm was that when I put it on my lips, I could feel the crackness of my lips which was very uncomfortable. It also just sat on my lips and didn't really soak in to make it heal. If your lips aren't super chapped and you just like the vanilla scent and nice tingling sensation, then I would completely reccommend it! But I will use this product when my lips aren't as chapped, so I'm not going to throw it away.

Well i have to say that of all the great things ive heard about soft lips, i do enjoy it but its not the greatest lip balm in the world, i did wait years to give it a shot, which i dunno why.. im a carmex girl so if you all have tried & use carmex then you will probably not enjoy this as much..
Ill go on to my review
The Soft Lips is available in a few "flavors" i believe Vanilla is one of the top sellers or favorites since who doesnt love a simple French Vanilla scent/flavor? i know i love em & Vanilla is always my favorite. These balms/sticks are available in most drugstores like CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid as well as Walmart, Target & even Big Lots in packs. Can be purchased individually for $1.50 or so or in packs around $3 so it all depends on how many you get & where you buy them. Check for sales/discounts. They are normally found where the cold medicine is.. in that area.
French Vanilla is a great smell/flavor. Its a nice soft, basic vanilla smell, not super strong but very light. You do smell it & taste it for a moment but its not lingering. I like vanilla flavoring & this one is prob the best of the chapsticks/balms ive used from drugstore brands but it dont last long. The balm itself isnt great either. For the first few minutes, its great. It provides a sheer layer of moisture & it makes my lips feel soft (not moisturized thoroughly like my beloved Carmex does) but still makes my lips feel smooth & soft. I love it for the first few minutes but then it disappears rather quickly. I know w/ most lip products, i dont expect super long wear time since i may lick/bite my lips & eat & drink things but this just goes away & i find myself having to reapply it so often that its annoying but still a nice little treat of vanilla. So if you suffer from SUPER DRY PARCHED/CRACKED lips like i do, then this is def not for you. It wont help moisturize your lips or provide a relief but if you just want a lip balm to provide a softness to your lips & a nice layer say before lipstick/gloss, then its good. I have the worst lip conditions so i need something more but on say really good days where my lips are peeling/chapped, id use this. I dunno if im just imagining it but i find w/ most chapsticks/balms, it ends up making lips worse? the more i use them, the worse my lips eventually get? But this is a great staple to throw in the purse to use when you need something to coat your lips.
Soft Lips come in the thinnest tube/stick of drugstore chapsticks. Its a small plastic tube/stick thats mechanical, it easily twists up & down. The lid is small so dont twist up a whole bunch or you will smoosh your chapstick. The packaging is white in color & i love the writing/labeling. Simple & thin & compact, can fit in any pocket/bag. I have been carrying mine around forever.
Overall, its a good basic lip balm, not really a chapstick since it doesnt provide relief or an instant comfort. Its a nice light softening stick. I dont suggests it for those like myself w/ awful lips but those who have good lips, this will be great! i love French Vanilla, its yummy!

Love the smell & the moisturization properties, but it doesn't last more than just a few minutes on my lips. Only purchase if you don't mind re-applying this product alot.

This was my go-to lip balm before I fell in love with The Body Shops Lip Butter in Coconut. It does an okay job of moisturising, and smells great. For me, it was not really anything special!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
It actually does make semi chapped lips all smooth and nice.. I didn't expect good results with this product, but i saw people raving about the chapstick soo i had to give it a try. And it's worth the price, though it's cheap too. 4 stars. If only there was a keychain thingie on it, i would give it 5 stars :D haha
