Love it, so soft, like a higher class Aquaphor. Very clear, not much color so if that is what you want, keep looking. But SO soft and smooth, if you need a treatment without bringing out the cheap sticks at work all day, this is a great option, all the benefits of a lip treatment but with the classy look of makeup.

I absolutely love this balm. I discovered it in college and have been using it for almost 10 years.
I think others have covered it's positives pretty well, so I'll discuss some things I disagree with.
I think the color is perfect. I look really good in orangey glosses and the tint in this gives me just the amount of color I'm looking for (granted, I am very pale, my lips are almost paler than my skin, so this may have something to do with it). It's not extremely bright orange, but the color is obvious without being overly so. I've also tried the Raspberry, though I prefer the Mango with my coloring.
I'm also surprised people are complaining about the lack of taste/scent. Part of the reason that I buy higher-end makeup is to avoid the nasty flavors you find with cheaper products. Flavored glosses nauseate me and give me a headache, not to mention men tend to hate them. I would be extremely disappointed if they changed their formula. I wouldn't buy a scented version.
Oh, and a tip for when the tube is almost empty-- put it in your pants pocket applicator side down (lid on of course). Any gloss sticking to the sides melts down and pools in the applicator reservoir. I always get quite a few extra uses out of what appear to be empty tubes this way.

Very minimal pigmentation (on me, this is a very,very sheer pink), but it's touted as a "tinted" lip treatment, so this wasn't too shocking or disappointing.
Impressive longevity...my lips feel moisturized for hours, even after drinking and eating.
Not sticky, and feels very glossy and smooth.
No taste or smell to speak of, which is perhaps somewhere this could be improved? Then again, it does what it claims to do, which is enough for me!

Like other reviewers, I was disappointed that this had barely no pigment - I was hoping for an orangey peachy hue for the summer months.
Having said that, the quality of the gloss is superb. I'm a die-hard Illamasqua gloss fan for the pigment and longevity, and Clinique Superbalms last almost as long. They have the added bonus of softening my lips, which get dry and cracked very easily (yes, even in summer! Also when I'm stressed I chew on my lips which ruins them). This gloss softens and repairs my lips.
I wear this over a lipstick if I want a more dramatic, wet-look effect, or on its own if I'm playing up my eyes. It lasts a good few hours - even after eating, I only have to touch up once in the day and once again if I'm gonig out, which makes the initial £12.50 great value for money.
Basically it's a substitute for a plain clear gloss - of excellent quality. I just wish it had the colour that the packaging promises!

I was sucked in by the pretty color.
I did swap it on my hand before I purchased, but I suppose I was too excited to realize my lips aren't as white as my hand...
Mango is a nice peachy-pink hue, which I've been looking to find for a while. Its the perfect peachy-pink in my opinion, but only in the tube.
I was a bit disappointed that there isn't that much pigment, but though it doesn't show up the same as it looks, it does brighten my lips up a bit.
So no dramatic tint is to be found here, but a little perk might, depending on your own lip pigmentation.
This is so moisturizing. I've practically replaced my favorite lip balm with this stuff.

i just love this whole line of lip gloss from clinique......it's very glossy and moisturizing.....fragrance free and glitter free which is very important for me......relieve dryness in seconds even in the coldest winter days......even after it wears out my lips are still good for a good period of time........this is better than any lipbalm i've tried.........

I cannot live without this product! I've got chronically dry lips that flake all the time. I've tried dozens of lipbalms but none of them was more than a temporary layer that I had to keep reapplying. I finally purchased this after a few weeks of hesitation because I'm not a gloss fan, but I am now a convert after seeing the difference overnight! My lips are moisturized well and all the flakiness is gone. I have not used any lipbalms since I started using Superbalm because I do not need them much anymore. I apply a thick layer every night, and during the day I use a thin layer underneath whatever lip product I have on. It has no smell, and it goes on clear on your lips, which may be a con to some, but I like that because I'm using it purely as a treatment and not as a gloss. Highly recommended.

the color online was pretty misleading...and based on these reviews i thought the color would be more light orangy. but when i got it i was really pleasantly surprised when i saw how bright and pinky the color is! i put it on right away. although its sticky it feels really smooth and like its nuirishing your lips or something. it takes FOREVER to soak in and i really dont like that, but it works really well once it does. it makes ur lips all supple and smooth and nice :). i wish it had some kind of scent though...i mean with no scent or flavor its boring :(. but i really like it and am excited it got here finally. yay :).

My lips are INCREDIBLY dry from Accutane, but I like wearing something besides Aquaphor, so I need a gloss that is very moisturizing. The Mango color you see in the tube (warm orangey pink) actually doesn't show up at all on your lips.
PROS: Doesn't sit on top of your lips. Causes the dry skin to slough off (mostly a pro--it isn't flaky and isn't terribly noticeable; the exfoliating property keeps my lips more moisturized). Not too sticky, IMO. Long lasting. Moisturizes well.
CONS: Very thick in tube. No scent (I prefer a little scent, personally). The applicator could stand to be a little smaller. This has like ZERO tint on my lips, which is a bummer because I was hoping for just a little color!
Love it, but like some of the other Superbalm colors better :)

I loved the regular Superbalm so much, I got this to wear for during the day for school or going out. It was really nice and shiny, and it felt very good on my lips, but there was hardly any tint. It was pretty much clear. Basically, it was the exact same as the regular Superbalm. While it was disappointing that there was not more pigment, I was glad it felt as good as the regular one. I used this a LOT when I was in high school.

I have 4 superbalms and this one I use as an overnight treatment since it has no color and I don't have to worry about dirtying my bed linen! I put it on before going to bed and in the morning after washing my face I simply wipe over my lips with a damp cotton pad and all dead skin is gone. Amazing, don't know how I lived without it before! Will definitely buy again!

i was very dissapointed in that this gloss is clear!
many of you guys have complained about the scent after a few weeks, and mine did too!
but i solved the problem: i stopped using it out of the tube w/ the plastic applicator. when i used it with my finger, it stopped smelling weird! therefore the one lippie for the packaging only.. plus i dont really like plastic applicators anyway
texture is sticky.. :[

Though i love this color..its super duper thick and sticky..no scent or flavor.So a big fat nay from me, sorry.

Oh! I love this! I lost my old one and I really need to get another one soon. I used other stuff for a while and before this, but this is definitely my FAVE lip moisturizing thing. Too bad there's no SPF ><
I've love it even more with SPF.

I've been wanting to try these "superbalms" for a while, and managed to get this in a swap (GWP size)
I was expecting this cute peachy pink balm, it turned out to be a clear gloss that rubs off in less time than a lipsmacker.
I've tried so many balms/glosses low end/high end - this is one of the worst!
Honestly, for the price, it could at least be a bit pigmented, or smell nice. All it did was make my lips shine.
It has a very faint medicinal smell which I cannot stand.
I'm so glad I did not waste any money on this.
*Tosses into garbage*

Got this as a sample in a Clinique promotion kit. Goes on slightly opaque peachy red. Not my colour, but would be lovely on someone whose colouring suits it. My only complaint is that it is difficult to get the last bit out of the tube out of the top. Had to wind up cutting it off with scissors, and squeezing out what was left.

This gloss is smooth and doesn't make my lips stick together like other glosses. It is supposed to be a balm gloss hybrid and in my opinion it is just that it combines the best of both, the shiny finish of a gloss with the moisturizing properties of a balm. The color is a beautiful coral in the tube and though these glosses are sheer some of that color still shows up on my pigmented lips. Will buy again because im almost done with my first tube.

LOVE this balm/gloss!
Perfect color, and it's not sticky at all. Consistency is similar to Rosebud Salve and it moisturizes as well. And for $15? Seriously, this stuff is awesome.

I love this lip balm/gloss!! It is fantastic product...I love the colour and shine that it provides. Would definately buy again! Love it!

My HG lipgloss! super glossy, feels wonderfull on, moistrizing, great staying power. my lips is too pink/rosy, so the orange neutralizes my lip color, looks great on me!
I noticed that the gwp and the full size don't have the exactly same color. the full size is slightly more orange and it is what I want it to be.
