It's alright. The first one i ordered was broken, and didn't wind up.
I got another but wouldn't buy it again, i'd just use my vaseline. It smells lovely, but there's not much of it, and it doesn't do too much. So what I use it for, is when I'm doing my eye make up and foundation i'll put it on so that my lips stay smooth for when I put on my lipstick last. Wouldn't put it on right before though, and wouldn't wear it out.

Saw a lot of great reviews on the E.L.F site so i decided to give it a try.
It was only $1 so I thought hey, why not?
I absolutely HATED this lip bam/treatment. I felt like it was just a thick layer of grease sitting on my lips. It felt gross and had no moisturizing effects at all.

It does its job by soothing. But, it feels gross. It's so greasy! It also leaves a white residue on your lips. I won't be buying this again.

maybe the one i got was bad because it was horrible...it tastes bad and it just feel apart when i tried to apply it so i just had to throw it away :(

I love this product so so much! Its so moisturising and hydrating, it feels so smooth when applied on the lips too. I wear this every night before I go to bed and when I wake up my lips are soft and healthy. Yes it does leave a white sheen on the lips so I wouldn't wear this in public, but because its so hydrating using it before bedtime is perfect for me. I've already purchased a back-up and bought another for my sister, everyone should try it!

Really moisturises the lips, good for just before applying lipstick. The smell is amazing. Only thing I hate is the packaging.

This was so cheap that I had to buy and try it. It has a nice smell and taste and it doesn't feel to heavy on my lips but it's unusable in public. It leaves a white residue on any slight dry parts on your lips and I have very dry lips. If I wore this in public, it would look like I dunked my lips in milk.
I give it a 1 for the smell and taste, but other then that it's not good.

I purchased sometime ago and as everyone else stated it leaves a white residue if you try to apply too much. I use it before bedtime to help condition my lips and in the morning my lips are really soft and moisturized. I also purchased orange cream which does not leave a residue at all and your lips feel really supple and it shines as if you've applied lip gloss without shimmer. Can be worn for day and go into night by applying a little shimmer lip gloss if you'd like. I will purchase again as part of my night time skincare regimen.

I bought this on a whim- it was one of those cold days where my lips were on the verge of being chapped and my daughter's lips were obviously so. I placed this right after buying (no mirror) but the first thing I did notice was a soothing sensation. I placed this on my daughter first and yes it turned her lips more white (there were chapped and flaky already) but nothing too dramatic.
I ended up putting lipgloss over this just because it felt too much like chapsticks but for a $1 no complaints.

Ok, well I see why quite a few people don't like this balm. It does leave a white residue on your lips if you don't blend it in well. If I smell it, I detect a faint vanilla scent which I don't mind. It's just kind of there. As for the texture, this is kind of where it gets tricky. Yes, the product is very soft and can get damaged easily. When you apply this, it glides on smoothly (think of slightly melted butter, almost watery). It does feel moisturizing but there is one thing I don't like. Personally, I have a bad habit of licking my lips, so when I have this on and I lick them, I have this product on my tongue. I don't taste anything, but I feel an unpleasant, thin oily film left on my tongue and it takes quite a while for the feeling to wear off. Hmm, the packaging gave me no problems whatsoever. All in all, I would buy again. For a dollar, you would have to expect putting in some effort in order for this product to give it's full ability.

Perhaps if this made my lips uniformly white, I would find a use for this. I'm not into the streaky whitish mess this creates. Oh and mine was not vanilla scented at all. It was more of a synthetic coconut.

This is a great flavor, but it does turn your lips whitish. Not a problem if used as a night treatment. Very smooth and moisturizing. I prefer the more oily feel versus something just plain waxy. Also, love the packaging. For a dollar, i will buy this again and again. I recommend the strawberry creme over this one.

I usually like Elf products, but I do not like this, AT ALL.
This doesn't smell like vanilla.
When you twist too much out, you cannot untwist it back in, so you waste product.
It leaves white residue on my lips.
I will not be buying this again.

I think I got a bad one but the one that I have is extremely soft. I thought it had gotten hot on the drive home from target in the FL sun but it stayed that way. Instead of smoothing it on my lips I have to blot it, its crazy soft. It is moisturizing but it leaves white all over my lips which is not the look I'm going for. I wear it when I'm at home because then I obviously don't care what my lips look like. I'm pretty much just using it up now and will not repurchase.

I actually bought this product by accident. I forgot to take it out of my basket! But, it's a mistake I'm glad I made. I really like this product! Not, LOVE, but like. As soon as you put it on, you can feel the moisture. Then only problem is that it leaves white streaks on my lips! I only wear it at night, that way when I wake up my lips are nice and full. If this didn't leave streaks, I would definitely wear it out.

ok so i heard so many bad reviews and i was hesitant to buy this but im so glad i did!
i admit its a very thick, waxy formula but i like how it feels on my lips and i didnt get any white-ness unless i totally cake it on. it didnt dramatically moisturize my lips but it did sort of. i also love to apply this on my lips, pat dry with a tissue and applpy my lip colour.
i personally like the smell but its the kind of scent that lots of people wouldnt like. and, if i smell it too much, i kinda wanna get sick!
i also like the slim, sleek packaging. its very small yet long which means it can easily be put in your pocket or thrown in your school bag :)
overall i like this product.

Don't get this one, unless you're cool with those white streaks allover your lips

It's only a dollar, yes, but this stuff is useless to me. I envy those people that claim to be able to use it at night before they go to bed but I simply can't. How can I go to bed with this waxy and uncomfortable feel on my lips? I tried it under lipstick and it didn't work either. Instead of moisturizes, it sits there on my lips and makes my lipstick wear off easily. It smells like coconut oil instead of vanilla but I actually don't mind that. What I do mind though, is that the retractable thingy is broken after only 2 times of use. I can't get the balm to retract back to the packaging so I have to push it with my finger. Ugh, definitely won't repurchase.

I loved how small and thin this was. It smelled good & was soft. But it left white streaks on my lips!!! It looked horrible! I won't buy again.

I'm very disappointed with the consistency of this product. Very slick, which I don't prefer for balms. The smell is not great, a little too strong actually. I don't find this to be "therapeutic" to my lips at all.
