This stuff is okay, I got it in a Sephora sample bag of some sort last summer and have been working on it since then. It works fine as a lip balm but it doesn't last very long, you have to reapply often and there can be some buildup. The minty smell is very chemical, you can almost taste the sunscreen in it. I wouldn't repurchase since there are much better lip treatments out there for less cash.

This product was not a big deal for me. I would rate it 2.5. It does an ok job of moisturizing. I don't like the minty smell and taste- it reminded me too much of Carmex. It has the consistency of a lighter version of Carmex or Vaseline. It also has a temporary tingling effect that I presume temporarily plumps your lips, but the effect was very minimal to say the least. Would not purchase again.
UPDATE: I was using it consistently trying to finish the tube and then one day I woke up with scaly, dry, cracked lips around the edges. I had applied this lip balm before bed.

This product has all of my favourite ingredients in it: Cocoa butter (to protect and condition skin), menthol (to enhance circulation/purify/energize), salicylic acid (to remove excess dead skin cells/increases cell renewal/purify), and Vitamin E (to heal/sooth/protect/nourish). I also like that it contains SPF as I live in a very sunny city. Another bonus is that it's paraben-free! I've been using this product off and on for 3+ years now, and when I'm using it my lips are soft and nourished. I like putting a bit on before bed to moisturize overnight, and I keep a tube on hand for when my lips feel dry throughout the day. Lately I've been using Lucas Paw Paw on my lips, but I think I'll start reaching for this one more often as Australia moves into winter. Will repurchase and recommend!

WOW !! This is the FIRST lip product that I have had that actually does what it says. LOVE IT !! It keeps my lips moist for hours, love the camphor, reduces lines and my lips feel kissably soft. It is expensive but it doesn't take much & I will definitely buy again. Love this company !!
UPDATE 2/2/11 : Been using this for a while not and my lips feel amazing. I put it on at bedtime and in the morning my lips are still moisturized. I will keep repurchasing.

OK, I am now totally in love with this product. Living in windy Denmark makes my lips go very dry very quick and this product is my total HG. It moisturizes and nourishes my lips, they seem much less wrinkly and what is more important are very soft and plumped.
Will definitely repurchase!

I really like this product. I went through many different lip balms and all of them left my lips feeling greasy and hardly hydrated. This one, however, mostarizes the lips and leaves them feeling fresh even hours after without re-application. In fact, I liked it so much, I got one for my mom and my cousin and they both love it as well.

I'm re-writing this review after 2 months of use, because the earlier review wasn't very fair. On the whole, I can't say I'm completely pleased or unhappy about this product...here's why:
I had needed something to relieve my deeply "lined" wrinkled lips. Fresh Lips is supposed to be a balm + exfoliator, but both it seems to be more the latter. It leaves a nice tingling sensation due to the menthol extract. But soon after, my lips also start peeling...in small gritty bits, which I'm not supposed to notice, much less feel, or so the salesperson says. The peeling becomes more frequent if I use Fresh Lips everyday, to the point that I can't use my beloved Lola or any lipstick that isn't deeply moisturising with a sheer texture. So far, I've been resorting to lipglosses and Clinique's Moisture Sheer, which doesn't pick up pieces of my "lip skin".
Despite this, my lips do look somewhat more plump, less lined (even if the lines are still there)...my theory is there's something in this lip balm/exfoliator that temporarily plumps up the lips....since this is my first tube, I don't know how longlasting this product is, but once you stop using it, your lips cease to look nice. In the meantime, I'll just keep using till I finish it.
