I've used this for a couple of months, I felt that initially it was different since it went on like a very liquid/almost oil type gloss. However, after 15 mins or so then I felt my lips were still dry. I think my lips ended up being more dry vs using Blistex or Chapstick typical wax type lip balms. This product is more expensive vs the traditional lip balms.

It felt like water on my lips. Didn't do anyting. Actually.....I think putting water on my lips would do more than this bad product.

I hated this product, it's way too glossy and it becomes dry within 10 minutes! I was very disappointed and won't be buying this again.

Bad stuff. This doesnt do anything at all. Its really oily and the stuff sits on the skin. It takes a bit to absorb but when it does, it doesnt do anything. Whats the point of this other than to makes lips glossy? Frankly, this stuff is junk and I would much rather put a beeswax lipbalm on that lasts for several minutes and actually moisturizes and protects lips from the elements. This stuff does nothing as was a waste of money for me. Bad Blistex on your crappy idea for lip moisture.

Well, I don't think this is all that bad.
Cute packaging, love the roller ball - feels very cool/soothing.
Small size can fit in your pocket!
Smells ok - kinda vanilla-y, but not overwhelming at all.
VERY cheap! >$2 and doesn't run out really fast.
Makes your lips shiny, like a gloss, but not sticky.
Has spf15! Which is better than nothing.
Not too moisturizing for very chapped lips.
Feels a little greasy/oily.
Doesn't have good staying power.
Overall, it's not bad for what you pay. I think it's almost as moisturizing as Burt's Bees, which is way more expensive. And if I ever have really chapped lips, the ONLY thing that really works is good old Vaseline!
EDIT: After using this for a few days, I'm finding that it's reall drying! I love how it feels putting it on, and the glossy look it gives, but I always need to reapply! My lips just end up feeling more and more dry... not good.

Ewwww is the first thing I have to say. I remember reading about this in a magazine many months ago when it first came out, and I remember being intrigued about it. Well, fast forward to 3 days ago. I was at Target and was beginning my Christmas shopping. I decided that I wanted to get a d/s lippie. I had in my hand the infamous Dr. Pepper lipsmacker that I always wanted to try since so many MUAers love it. I knew that I wanted to get my SO some balms as well so I made my way to the Lipbalm area. I picked him up a few different flavors of Chapstick and then I saw Lip Infusion. The SPF in this product is not stable, so of course, I would be buying this as a moisturizer for my lips. Well, I put back the lipsmacker at $1.37 and decided to buy Lip Infusion for $1.87.
Well, after leaving Target, I tried it on. My initial reaction was the silver ball in which you apply the gloss felt really cold on my lips and then my second reaction is that this is a very slippery, thin gloss.
Fast forward 3 days later. I hate this gloss. I would never ever repurchase this. The wear is horrible. I have to apply every five minutes or else this stuff dries out my lips further. It feels like you put cooking oil on your lips.
The scent is really strange. It's not good, but it's not bad either. I have the Moisture Splash version. For one that is supposed to be more moisturizing, I would hate to think how the other ones feel in this line.
I wish I would have chosen the lipsmacker.

Ugh, I hate this product. My dad got this for me one day last winter when my lips were freaking out. I had to keep applying this every few minutes so my lips wouldn't crack. Too expensive for what you get. Will not repurchase. Original Blistex is way better.

I picked this up at the drugstore while my lips were having a freak out. I think that they are naturally dry, and they also seem sensitive to a lot of products- the reaction to both is a lot of peeling and flaking, which I constanly rub and pick at, then they bleed. Sexy huh? I saw this and was intrigued by the thought of a lip product that would just sink in, because the chapstick like stuff is a little waxy. It tasted great, the container and metal roller ball is cute, and initially it seemed to help, but by the next day my lips were even worse. And they hurt on top of everything else.

The only thing good about this product is its packaging. It's a cute little frosted roll-on tube with a cap. I bought it this weekend because I went out of town and left all my lip balms/chapsticks at home in my other purses (!).
The package claims that it provides "penetrating" moisture "that you can feel." False. The product stays on the surface of your lips with absolutely no penetration of moisture. My lips stayed dry as ever!
To use this simply as a gloss would be fine if your lips are not chapped, but as far as performing what it is supposed to, I give it an F.

This feels so so so nice when you first roll it on, then it goes downhill. It's not sticky and smells good, but that about ends the good points. It stays on for about 5 minutes, and you have to keep applying it. I didn't find that it dried out my lips though, I found it made them very soft. It's probably the reaction to the sunscreen in it ( as someone mentioned before). I can't stand a lip gloss that you have to reapply every 20 seconds, so away this goes. I'd rather pick up some normal lipgloss or some regular blistex, which makes my lips feel a lot better and lasts a lot longer.

I just bought my second tube of this product. I use it primarily as a lip gloss. Although I like the look of gloss, I'm not a big fan of the sticky consistancy of most gloss products. Lip Infusion goes on light and glossy and tones down the dry look of the long-lasting lipsticks I'm fond of. When I want to moisturize and protect my lips, I use Aquaphor (night) and Blistex DCT (day).
As for the dry, chapped feeling some posters have commented on, I believe they may be experiencing irritation from the sunscreen ingredients in this product. Octisalate, in particular, can cause contact dermatitis in many people, especially on tender areas such as the lips.
This lip balm also has a few other ingredients that could cause problems for some folks:
Polybutene. A polymer derived from mineral oil and used as a thickener and lubricant.
Lanolin: Some people are sensitive to the wool alcohols in lanolin.
Hope this helps.

I actually really like this. I also got it for free in a swap, so not having to pay for it helps, lol. Anyway...I do like this; the tube is small and attractive looking, and the metal roller ball feels "cool" and refreshing on your lips, and it smells pleasant. The actually lip balm itself is more like a lip gloss, because it is very liquidy and provides a lot of shine.
On their website it says about the Lip Fusion, "The unique liquid formula absorbs quickly to instantly give you soft smooth lips with no waxy feel." So it's not really supposed to stay on your lips for very long, apparently.
I guess I must be an oddball or something because I didn't have any problems with my lips feeling chapped afterwards like some of the reviewers here did.

For a lip balm, this one is horrible! The texture is nice but it does not stay on. It needs to be re-applied every half hour (that is w/o eating or drinking). I paid $2.19, which is not much money but it is a lot considering that it doesn't work when a Bonnebell's LipSmaker is only $1.50.

At first, I liked Lip Infusion. I liked how the rollerball applicator felt cool against my lips. Unfortunately, I have to agree with other members who said that it made their lips feel chapped afterwards. It works well as a lip gloss, but as a lip balm, it doesn't moisturize very well.

My sis got this lip 'balm' and I tried it. I regret doing so. This dried out my lips, and left them feeling x-tra chapped. The shine i think was nice, and the smell was ok. But this definatley defeated the purpose that lip balms are supposed to have. To MOISTURIZE!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
Like most of the other reviewers said, this leaves your lips feeling really dry and chapped after you put it on. It's exactly like the spa lip balms they had (in the 3 pack) except for it's a liquid version. It even smells and tastes the same as one of them. The only reason I've given it a 2 instead of a 1 is that it does smell nice (the original version), and the packaging is a neat idea. I like that it gives some shine to your lips too, although some of the other reviewers didn't like that. In the end though it doesn't moisturize at all and that sort of defeats the purpose of lip balm.

I just finished using this up. It comes out of a rollerball which I thought would be neat, but when it's really cold, it feels kind of awkward putting it on. It also leaves lips looking really greasy (since it's loaded with jojoba oil I suspect) and if you ever taste this stuff accidentally, you'll be paying for it. It tastes nasty. It also doesn't really do much on my lips at all either - it doesn't feel like it's conditioning when it goes on and it disappears FAST. You really have to keep applying it for it to work. It's nice that it has SPF 15 but that's the only nice thing about it. I'm not giving it a 1 since I only reserve that for products which end up making things worse (this thing didn't really do anything at all).

I feel like such an oddball. I love this stuff. It smells great, it has a nice taste. I don't really like how glossy it is, so I pat some off when I apply it. I don't have a problem with it drying my lips at all. They feel great and soft.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
Yeah I agree with the reviewers below. This is very moisturizing for the first minute or so but after that it leaves the lips really dry than before. There was this one time when I was studying for an exam I couldn't stop applying this because it was really making my lips dry. Which is too bad because I really wanted to like this.
