I bought this before going skiing, I get really dry lips in the mountains and thought I could rely on SukÝ for one excellent lip balm. Let's just say that I was disappointed. Big time. This is too hard, feels waxy (like rubbing a candle on your lips), smells like mosquito repellant and does not moisturise my lips at all. It's quite big, but that's about the only positive thing about it. And when the actual product is rubbish, who cares that it's twice the size of an average lip balm stick? Also, the text on the label rubs off, the label edges go all fluffy and leave the stick looking really shabby after just a few weeks in my purse. Bad, bad performance all over. Agree with the other poster saying it might just be SukÝs worst product. Will defo NOT buy again. Ever.

Awful. Hard, waxy, unusable & not moisturizing! Possibly their worst product.

I was extremely disappointed with this product. It's expensive and I thought it would actually do what it claims to do but it does not. It is a thick, wide stick so if you don't have Angelina Jolie lips, it's hard to apply.
It does not moisturize my lips at all and it is very matte, which consequently makes my lips feel even more dry. I hate, hate, hate this product and really wish I didn't waste my money buying it. Sure it will last a long time but who cares? It doesn't work. I've never used a lip balm that actually does the opposite of what it's supposed to do. Don't waste your time.
P.S. I live in a warm, humid climate and have never had any issues with any other lip balm in terms of moisture so it's definitely a Suki thing.

Very hard and waxy. Matte though. It does smell nicely of citrus (albeit plus wax, a la Lush's Lemony Flutter). New packaging: $9.95 for 0.34 oz from vickerey.com. Differences:
- Longer tube. I can tell because they sent me the new tube in the old box and they couldn't close it all the way.
- Twists from the top just below the cap instead of the bottom.
- 0.34 oz instead of 0.5 oz.
- Shelf-life is 12 months instead of 24 months.

I have very dry lips and this is the best lip balm of this type I've ever used. It is natural, doesn't melt in hot weather, lasts a long time on the lips (compared to Weleda, and Dr. Hauschkta) and doesn''t need to be replaced it as often as others (I suppose because it is very rich in shea butter). It's a little more cost than most of this type, but you get what you pay for. I think that there are even better products out there for dry lips, but I will need to pay $30-100+ and they are not all natural. Trying Mychelle, LaPrarie and Dermaceuticals now and can say the Dermaceuticals last through the entire night for me.

Wow, this is the best lip balm that I've ever tried !!
I live in Denmark, where the climate is cold and dry, and for years my lips have been very very dry and chapping, which has led to bleading lips. Auch. I've tried Blistex, Dr. Hauscka, Carmex, vaseline etc.. Nothing has helped ! But finally i found THE THING. It is actually working. My lips are even and soft now. I can only recommend this product.

WOW, I'm surprised to see such a low rating for this lip blam - it's one of my all time favorites.
I love the texture of it - not too waxy and not too soft - it's the perfect balm for my purse. The scent is nice, don't notice much of a taste, and it doesn't melt or get gooey in my purse, even if the cap comes off.
It's a little pricey for this type of product ($9.00 at Whole Foods), but it feels and works great, and it's a good company - eco & animal friendly.
I wonder if where people live can account for the negative reviews. I live where it is warm year round, and maybe this balm gets too hard in a cold climate. I know that most everyone raves about The Fresh Sugar lip treatment, but I find it way too soft to carry anywhere - it melts in my purse, and because it's so soft, it doesn't last long. Or maybe Suki just had a bad batch, like someone else suggested.
All I can say is that this is my HG "purse/on the go lip balm/chapstick" and it lasts a long time, which cancels out the purchase price issue.

I love Suki's products, but this is just awful. It is hard and waxy and is one of the most uncomfortable balms I have ever put on my lips. This is going back to the store.

I hated this product. It was advertised as a matte balm that "heals and prevents chapping without a glossy or waxy residue." So, I imagined it to have a soft, melting texture (as suggested by the word "butter" in its name). Instead, as some other reviewers have commented, I found it too hard to apply - it dragged on my lip skin, making my lips less comfortable than they were before. As the balm had cost me ú9 plus p+p (and I was determined to get my money's worth!), I took to carrying it around in my pocket for a few days, hoping that my body heat would soften it a little. But, even when it was soft enough to apply, it did nothing for my lips. I gave up - melted the whole thing down and applied it as an overnight foot softening treatment!

I purchased quite a few Suki products after reading extensively about them. So far, I have loved most of them. Unfortunately, this was not one of those products. The product was too so hard that I couldn't get any on my lips. I usually wear blistex at night and have never had dry lips. However, after using this for 2 nights I now have dry lips. I will be sending it back.

In a word: meh.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
At first I didn't like it. It seemed too thick. But later after wearing it (I was adamant to wear it as I paid $20 for it!). It grew on me, and I actually grew to appreciate it's ultra thick matte texture. It really offered tremendous moisture and healing for my dry lips. It stayed put once applied too. I will repurchase! but hopefully for less than $20 at Whole Foods in Vancouver!

what happened to this stuff?! i used it for a year and i was VERY happy with this product. until recently. i had run out of the stuff, so i bought a second one at whole foods but was dismayed to find that the product was NOTHING like the soft, delicious lemony butter to which i had grown accustomed! it seems like pure shea butter now in the sense that it is VERY waxy, to the point where it actually sticks and drags on my lips. a smooth application is impossible. the product is very HARD. maybe it's a bad batch? i don't know, but when i went back to whole foods i peeked at some of the others on the shelf and they all appeared to have the same consistency. the tester, however, was smooth and buttery, just like my OLD one. if it doesn't go back to what it was, i will never buy it again. disappointing.

I bought this after one of the myriad of lip glosses I put on my lips burned them and began to make them peel. I have reactions to certain synthetic lip products. If this happens I have to go "organic" for a bit to heal my lips.
I bought this lip balm at a local natural grocery store. The line is also avaliable at Whole Foods.
The ingredients are "organic jojoba, grapeseed and sunflower oils infused with organic chamomile and calendula,beeswax and pure, premium steam distilled essential oils." The smell is a light lemon scent. It runs about eight bucks for a half ounce tube.
That being said...I LOVE THIS STUFF. I normally don't like just a "balm". I prefer more glossy things. If you love a good thick gloss, don't buy this. This is, simply put, a BALM. It repaired my lips in ONE DAY. I woke up this morning with my lips no longer cracking...and the red splotches that were on them are gone as well. My lips look smooth, moisturized, and pink.
This is a great product if you have sensitive skin or chapped lips and need some repair...or simply a good moisturizing base for a lip stick. I took off one lippie for the price.
I will repurchase.

This is the only disappointment for me in suki's products. It's neither buttery or lip-repairing for me, just an average lip balm I will use it up,but not repurchase @ $8.00/tube.

This is a rather expensive lip balm, but it's a larger than usual tube. I love it- it has a very light, lemony scent and taste, and it sinks right into your lips with absolutely no waxiness. I find that I do have to reapply more often than some of the waxier balms, but I still love this balm! ETA: I originally thought this balm was expensive, but I checked out the size and it's a full .5 oz balm, as opposed to the .15 oz that most tubes of lip balms seem to be. So I actually think it's a very good buy for the price!

all natural, chemical free. okay. that's cool. but really, it isn't any more effective that blistex, and so i'm not all that impressed. and it was $8... that's a little ridiculous.
