Call me crazy but my lips feel plumper when wearing this balm even if they don't appear to be any plumper. I should disclose that I LOVE Dior products and have yet to be disappointed by any of those I have purchased. I was looking for mainly an overnight lip balm to treat my lips and keep them from chapping during winter. This is perfect for that and equally great for during the day use too. Pricey, no doubt. It is Dior after all. $33 Cdn which I must admit is a little expensive but what can I say, I'm a Dior junkie. This balm is not sticky, the texture is creamy smooth, not exactly light, but not heavy either. It is not greasy like Vaseline, has only a faint hint of rose scent which is quite nice and has decent staying power. I have a tendency to go through lip balms at warp speed, applying often through the day but this seems to last a bit longer than the others.

A note about the packaging - it would be preferable to have this in a tube however I think the consistency is too thick for that. I personally do not like using my fingers to get the product out so I just use a brush (handle end) so I don't have to contaminate the product or get it under my fingernails. I wish they gave a plastic paddle applicator with the balm but I make due with what I have. You could probably use a lip brush if you wanted but I don't especially like that either, just a personal preference. None of this would deter me from using the product because I do think it's the bomb/balm.

What I love about this is that it is highly moisturizing without too much shine. This truly is a balm and not a gloss. The consistency is perfect because it's not too thick, not too watery. I've tried everything from La Mer, to 3LAB, to Chanel and this tops them all.

Many people notice that lip balms work at first but then actually make their lips worse. This isn't the case with the Dior. It's moisturizing 24/7. The scent is soothing and light which doesn't offend. I highly recommend!

Bought this at Sephora a month ago. It smells wonderful, like it's made with real rose oil, which is probably why it is so expensive. It's a perfectly nice balm, but it does not plump lips at all. Not even a little bit, and my lips will plump nicely with Buxom lip gloss. It comes in a pot, and since I'd rather have a stick balm, and it's expensive and doesn't plump, I won't repurchase. I like Dr. Hauschka's lip balm in stick form, so I'll stick to that!

I have been looking at this balm for months and decided to get it. personally I love it, really helps chapped lips. I usually bite my lips in the colder months when they get chapped and this fixed my lips in less than 2 days. I love using it at night before bed. the leaflet says the plumping is gradual but I don't care much if it really does so or not. very pretty smell and packaging. I wold buy this again.

I've been eyeing this lip balm for a while now, and decided to purchase it recently at Sephora. I'm not sure if I was just mistaken or if other photos were misleading, but I was expecting it to be really creamy and buttery, and not like a solid product that applies thinly? I don't mind, because I actually prefer it to be a thin layer on my lips, and when I apply it at night, I can still feel it on in the morning, which is amazing. I'd say this is a great night time lip balm when your lips are really dried and chapped. It actually soaks into the lips and stays until the next morning, unlike most other balms that just sit there and do nothing. I don't think I'll repurchase, but this is a nice product if you're looking to splurge.

I splurged on this lip balm last year when sephora did it's 20% off for VIB members. Would I pay full price for this lip balm: no. Would I like to receive it as a gift: yes.

I find that it has lasted me almost 1 year. I only applied at night. Does a fantastic job of moisturizing my lips. I did not appreciate any plumping from this product. Great silky finish on the lips. It is not tacky at all. I love the rose smell, but some may think it's too old lady like.

The container is very simple. I did not have any closure problems like others have commented.

I feel you can get very similar results with Rosebud salve.

I actually thought this was going to be all hype, but it isn't. Is it a miracle product? No. But I buy a lot of butters and balms and I do think this is superior. Plumping? Absolutely not. It smells like roses and is more lubricating silk feeling than sticky. It makes my lips quite soft. My only complaint is because it's a vintage looking jar it never totally seals. And you don't get much for $30. Still worth it. I stock up when Nordstrom "price matches" Dior.

Do not buy this! Do not listen to all of the hype! I read all of the positive reviews for months and finally decided to drop $30 (gulp) on a LIP BALM. The packaging is cheap. This stuff is so thick, it is almost impossible to get it out of the tub. This did make my lips smoother and softer, but certainly not any softer than my Vaseline Lip Therapy. I figured since I paid so much for this it would last forever but boy was I wrong. I used this every night and it barely lasted me a month. I will never buy this again.

I had to write a review for this when I saw the post before me said its being discontinued. I know it's pricey but I took the splurge and glad i did. I love the smell. That alone is enough for me to repurchase- like roses- my fav smell. It leaves my lips super soft and shiny. Better than any lip treatment I've used. I will go repurchase now to hav a backup. I also like to take a little and use as a highlight on my cheekbones. Or under my eyes when they're dry at work. Multiple uses.

*DISCONTINUED*
One of the best lip balms I have ever used. A thick nourishing rose lip balm that always keeps my lips smooth. The packaging is so chic - a little white pot with 'CD' on the lid. The packaging is the same as the abricot nail creme because that is also a treatment product.
It's sad that Dior have discontinued this amazing product!
