I got this for free when I applied for my Sephora Beauty Insider card. I got the regular lip balm and the rose tinted one which I love. For the price, I expected something more moisturizing but this went on really sheer on my lips and needed reapplication constantly. I don't think I'll be buying my own full size bersion of this.

I don't know what all the people with the negative reviews are talking about! This is the best lip balm ever! Smells amazing, tastes amazing, feels amazing, and is super moisturizing! The only flaws are it breaks easily, because it's so soft. Plus it's super expensive. I would totally pay the full price for this lip balm!

I should start by saying I have really dry lips. I got this and I thought it smelled nice and would be one of those balms that I could use over or under those drying lipsticks that I seem to love. Alas, this balm was not moisturizing enough and it proved to be more of a hassle. To begin, it is so soft that it immediately got smashed (as I am not incredibly careful with all my products, I sort of expect them to withstand some normal handling). The balm itself can be drying at times. It does not play well under some matte lipsticks that I tried to pair it with. Finally, the product is way overpriced to boot!
In all I would not recommend it and will not buy it again.

This is seriously the worst lip balm I've ever used. I feel like it doesn't even warrant a proper review because the main problem I have with this product is that it dries out my lips so incredibly bad that, by the end of the day, I have to do some major TLC for damage repair (which is to say that I sleep w/a petroleum jelly 'pack' on my lips – my fail-safe rescue for any lip disaster; literally heals your lips overnight). Anyway, I don't like this at all. I definitely won't be repurchasing it, nor would I recommend it.

Got it as sephora gift. do not see why it is anything special. Same as any other lip balm or even Vaseline. Not more or less moisturizing. Ive rated low just because it its supposed to be a higher end product and costs $20 when its really no different than a $2 lip balm.

I got this as a Sephora b-day gift - this and a rose-tinted one. Both are mini's. It's really soft, feels greasy and disappears at the first sign of talking, eating, etc. Really doesn't do much for the lips. One innovation - it's in a metal container (yeah, Fresh, way to be environmentally sensitive) that you must *screw* on and off. Well, at least it's secure. Good thing I didn't have to pay for it.

I really wanted to like this. At first swipe it felt amazing on my lips, smooth and moisturized but as I continued to use it I noticed my lips became more chapped and started peeling. I admit that I occasionally deal with chapped, peeling lips but that isn't normally until the middle of winter. I had to stop using this. It's as if my lips became dependent on the lip balm and would become very dry when not used. Besides this problem, the product is very expensive and melts too easily as others have mentioned. Those two reasons alone are enough to make me not want to purchase this lip balm. Luckily, I received it free from sephora. Overall I'm staying away from this product.

I really loved this at first, and at first, thought I'd repurchase. I got it as a gift from Sephora and even started looking at their other colors, esp Coral but I've since decided that as much as I love the packaging, the idea, feel, and smell of this lip treatment, I can't live with how easily it mushes and breaks. I've got an Avon Dew Kiss that works just as well and I got it on sale for 69 cents, and it doesn't break!

I absolutely love this lip balm. I have very dry lips and I've tried literally every drugstore balm there is to no avail. Even aquaphor, which was highly rec'd, did zilch. I tried dior creme de rose which I actually really do love, but it's in a pot which is kind of unhygienic, so I'll only use it at home. I tried this at sephora, and I didn't expect it to be that great, but it is! It's super moisturizing, and the moisture lasts. My lips finally feel comfortable, and look much fuller. I can still easily reapply it through out the day though, because of the convenient tube packaging. And I love the smell! It's a light, sugary lemon that is pretty unoffensive, but delicious. It is kind of expensive, but in comparison I've tried another one that had the same texture, smell, and packaging type for $50, and it didn't even work. I expected this to have great reviews, but they are very mixed, so all I can say is go to sephora and try it out! You might be surprised, I sure was!

I like it. The scent would probably be more of a deciding factor for people. I like the lemony-citrus scent. Makes it smell clean.
It has the added benefit of SPF 15. I wore it when my lips were super dry, and it moisturized it well enough that I didn't have to apply it so often. It casts a super shiny sheen on your lips that it could seem like a gloss. So if you like the effect of glosses, but don't like their sticky formula or they dry out your lips, then I definitely suggest you try this.
It doesn't taste like anything so you won't be tempted to eat it off.
I love how the packaging is like that of a lipstick, because some lip balms come in a tin and I don't like applying it with my finger when I'm out (after I've touched the icky poles on the bus).
Price is the only reason why I wouldn't purchase. I got this in a mini from the sephora birthday gift. A lip balm retailing for $22.5 is just not worth it in my books.

This lip balm is very nice. It moisturizes, treats, and protects my lips very well. But as the others have said, it IS very expensive for a lip balm and the softness of the balm does cause it to move in the tube. I actually like lemons but I don't like this lemon smell at all..

Got it from Sephora for my birthday, so I have the mini size. As far as the lip balm goes, I think it works great (for me). Very moisturizing but not overly heavy.
I think the packaging is kind of cool, with the screw on cap. But every time I wind product up to use, it creates dents and lines in the product and I can already tell that it'll make the lip balm break off.
The full size product is about $18 to $20, and I'm not sure if there's the same problem with the full size one but I probably won't repurchase base on price alone.

Well like everyone else, I also got these from Sephora for my birthday, I would never spend the money to rebuy. I think it is just average lip balm. It smells nice, does feel hydrating on your lips, but the packaging is horrible for how buttery the product is. I actually prefer Korres in the Pots or if you like tubes I adore the lip balm by Hempz. It will eventually fall apart and get squishy in the tube, and for just average lip balm that isn't worth it. I can't carry in my purse with this either, I live in Sunny AZ...too hot here to walk around with a butter like lip balm in your purse. Not worth the money!

Product works well and has a texture I have not found in other balms from the drugstore/generics. The formula is very smooth and will help immediately. I also like this under lipsticks whose formula is tacky, dry, and generally doesn't apply well.
The scent is sugar and lemons. It is not fake smelling.
Packaging is excellent; The tube has a screw on lid and is metal on the full size tubes. I keep them after I am done with them to re-house lipsticks/balms that do not travel well in their own packaging.

This is just not a very good product.
I'll start with the positives: The packaging is very good from a technical standpoint (sturdy and protective) and it's very attractive and high-end looking. Sadly, the product inside is close to worthless.
The balm is your basic, generic brand lip balm. It does an adequate job of moisturizing and protecting lips, but it's nothing to write home about. It feels a touch too heavy, and yet it doesn't last very long. On the plus side, it does have sunscreen.
Because the product is soft, but in a twist-up tube, every time you use it, the stick moves around in it's holder acquiring little dings and dents. I can see already that I'll have to move this into a tub before long if I want to continue using it.
I got this as the Sephora birthday sample, and it's OK enough that I'll probably keep using it til it breaks or runs out. But at $20+ for the regular size, I couldn't possibly be talked into buying it, nor can I recommend.

I'll be honest, there's nothing wrong with this lip balm (well, other than the expensive price). It works, it's hydrating, feels quite luxurious on the lips, but for the price point, I believe there are lip balms out there that are far superior and actually cheaper. I have very sensitive skin and this definitely passes that test. It hasn't caused any allergic reactions on my skin, but I just believe it's nothing special. I have a very thorough review about it on my blog if anyone is interested in checking it out just google "Sensitastic". You'll also find a post on the best lip balms I've encountered that supersede this lipbalm by far! Hope you find it helpful :)

I actually got this product the same way a lot of people did--the birthday trial. I got a full sized one because I wanted to try one of the other colors and I've come to the conclusion that it's alright. The colors are cute and it gives you a nice shine, but it feels almost like vaseline or something on your lips. It's a very gel-like substance and it reminds me a lot of Baby Lips by Maybelline.
My problem is that the stick literally moves around in the packaging. It goes on like butter and it melts like butter. It slides because it's so soft in the tube.
So basically, I think the $20+ for a tube isn't worth it. If anything, invest in Baby Lips since the texture is almost the same and it does the same thing.

I love this stuff. So moisturizing... I love the lemon scent. If it was $10 I would buy again but it's too expensive!

I, too, got this from Sephora as a birthday present. It would never occur to me to pay that much for a lip balm. This sample didn't change my mind. I don't find it very moisturizing and it smells like furniture polish. The rose one is actually quite nice but the sugar one is terrible.

I got this chapstick for free at Sephora as the birthday gift and while i like the way the packaging looks and how it feels against my lips, i absolutely hate the smell. I put it on my lips and a minute later I have an awful headache.
