It's nice, but it doesn't justify the price.
I love the scent, rose is my favourite and it's not too strong, but the texture of this just feels incredibly waxy. It doesn't feel nourishing, more like a barrier over my lips, which cheaper balms do just as well. It stays on me for about an hour, which is longer than most balms, but for the cost, I'd rather apply a cheaper one a little more often.
I've been using it for about a month and I haven't noticed a difference between this and my AU$6 one.
After all the hype this received, I'm disappointed.
Also, for everyone worried about putting their fingers in the pot, they make this in a tube, like a lipgloss with a wand, or you can do what I do and use a lip brush in the jar. I just scoop a little out and spread it over my lips. Just remember to clean your brush to protect your product from growing bacteria.

I am a By Terry fan, but this is one 'cult' product that disappoints me. My lips tend to be dehydrated and lines appear over the course of the day. Most lipsticks dry out my lips. So, I'm on the hunt for a smoothing, plumping, nourishing balm. By Terry's Baume de Rose did not do the job. Pros: delicate pinky pearl sheen on the lips, feels moisturising and plumping, luxurious packaging. Cons: very expensive and over-priced, initial effects don't last, good cheaper alternatives available at drugstore.

Years ago, I would read good reviews of this lip balm. Finally, it was sold at Sephora, but every time I went to Sephora, it was always sold out and I never had a chance to buy it. Then Sephora stopped selling By Terry and to come to think of it, every product was always sold out and I rarely was able to buy anything. The foundation colors were too dark and there were not much left to purchase and was lucky only once to be able to buy the liquid blush, which turned out to be a real dream and lasted a long time.

Finally, I got my hands on By Terry Baume de Rose. This balm is thick as paste and is not shiny on the lips compared to lip gloss, vaseline, and those Bonne Bell lip balms. I wouldn't say Baume de Rose is matt, it has a pearlized color to it and give the illusion that your lips look more plump, but has nothing in its ingredient, like mint or something that make your lips look fuller. This balm is certainly not designed to be noticed on the lips, but again, adding the illusion of smooth, fuller look of lip and perfect base for lipstick.

The packaging is in a tiny jar with a cute silver lid that has the allure of elegance. I don't think the jar packing is meant to be carried in your purse, but something to have on your vanity to smooth out your lips and have that natural look, but prettier since it has the pearlized color.

As for the scent. It is very light and I don't get the impression it is a chemical formulated rose scent but a natural one from a rose essential oil and this is probably why the scent does not linger.
I have not noticed any taste of this balm and it doesn't feel heavy on the lips.

This balm is fairly new to me, but I think this jar will last me up to two years. I may purchase a second one to keep at work to keep my cuticles smooth and would repurchase again once I run out.

The scent gives me an instant headache. Packaging is okay but nothing special for the price..

This thing is toooo OVER price!

I had my eye on this after reading all the good reviews about it. I told myself I have to buy and try it! HUGE disappointment. I was hesitated to purchase this at the first place because of the packing, I do not like stick my finger in every time, so I have to use a plastic sticker. Due to unpractical application, I have to leave this at home.

Secondly, I cannot stand the taste of it. The rose smell is nice, but as a lip product, I cannot avoid having a bit taste in my mouth. It tastes like chemical. After applying it, I had to avoid drinking water!

Thirdly, it does not moister the lip as many other lip balm does and it doesn't last either.

I think I was crazy spending AU$80 on this! Now I only use it for cuticles.

My favourite lip balm is a Korean brand - Sulwhasoo

BY TERRY makes the best lip/cuticle cream I have ever used, and I have used MANY,MANY,MANY! I am already on my third tube after finding out the tubes are my preference because instead of sticking my finger in the gooey pot I'm able to use a lovely tube with a sponge applicator that allows my fingers to remain free of any product other than the cream I use from the applicator that's made of a nicely made sponge the size of a lip gloss and a tube that allows me to use me to use the sponge the size of a tiny wand that fits just on top of my cuticles and around and under them for maximum treatment. And after one week I found out that the lovely rose smelling treatment is magic and is just what I needed to make my lips soft and free of pulled tags and that I once again had heathy cuticles, which are synonym with heathy nails if I used my nails product atleast twice daily and my lip cream several times daily for healthy lips and healthy fingernails because heathy nails come from healthy cuticles and health lips come from quitting the horrible habit of biting my lips and my fingernail tips as well. So I now have healthy lips and cuticles plus the wonderful scent of roses, TERRY knows how to beat the rest of the crowd that's for sure and now she's come out with colored lips glosses in four colors that work just as well as the original but have delightful colors to add a nice shade over my bland colorless lips. So with all that to offer BY TERRY is the Trifecta Thoroughbred Winner

I enjoy using this Baume de Rose (the fragrance is lovely), but, honestly, it doesn't perform any better than Aquaphor. A nice splurge product.

I think this is one of the many cult beauty products that is overhyped. I had high expectations for this, but I felt like it did nothing extraordinary for my lips. I would recommend trying to get a sample of this before shelling out $60 for the full size. I'm glad I didn't spend $60US for this, because I would have been really upset.

I have to admit the rose scent is beautiful, but I felt like the product just slipped off my lips and provided minimal moisture. There are other (cheaper) lip balms out there that are MUCH better. I would recommend the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm over this.

Literally the best lip balm I have ever used. Nothing compares. Nothing even comes close.

It hydrates like no other, isn't sticky and is beautifully scented (who doesn't love the smell of roses?). Consistency is just gorgeous, so smooth and velvety. A little goes a long way which is good because it is pricey and I now refuse to go without it. Packaging is also very luxe - love the glass jar and the beautiful silver lid.

Honestly, it just keeps my dry lips in such good condition! Highly recommend if you feel like treating yourself.
