Comes in some nice scents and tints. Good if you want a shiny, sticky gloss.

Warning: do NOT buy this product!!! I just looked at the ingredients (and also updated the ingredients list on this website) and all of these lip shines contain PETROLEUM, or petrolatum. They may taste good and feel moisturizing initially, but over extended use, they will actually DRY OUT your lips because they contain petroleum in them! I used Blistex's Fruit Smoothies chapstick for 3 years (which contains petroleum as well), and my lips became super-dry!! Just recently, I learned that petroleum causes your lips to dry, which then causes you to apply and use more of the product to maintain moisture. It is also said to have an addictive quality so you put more and more on. I'm returning all of these to bath and body works ASAP!! D:

Too be honest, I have no idea how much this costs and if its worth it when compared to the price. I've always gotten this as a gift from my fiancÚ because he loves the taste of it. Since he essentially "steals" it the moment I put it on, I cannot review its longevity as a gloss. I wouldn't say it's very moisturizing; no where near what a lip balm with a waxy formula would feel like. It tastes great; just like peppermint. It does give a tingling feeling and makes the lips slightly plumper (though its short lived). Its extremely glossy, like mirror shine. I would get this product again, just for the taste since its so popular with my fiancÚ.

Pretty disappointing product, no staying power

I'll be honest: When I first tried this lipgloss, I absolutely hated it! It was too thick and gloppy to use.
The next day, I tried applying it with a lip brush. And suddenly, I was in love! I love how minty this is and how it freshens my breath. I will definetly repurchase!!

No matter how many lip balms, shines, tints, etc etc I buy, I always come back to this one. I have finally given up the fight in finding other lip balms because nothing really compares. I have this in three types: peppermint, cinnamint, and the ultra 2x shine and love all three. They smell and taste great, keep my lips soft and moisturized and actually prevents my lips from getting chapped. May not work great for everyone, but I absolutely love these and have no complaints.

I must be in the minority here but I *did* find the formula way too thick and gloopy. Both for this plain mint lip shine and for the colored lip tints. Perhaps I got a bad batch. They all were delightfully minty though.

I love the Mentha Lip Shines. They're not sticky or goopy, have a pleasent taste and smell, and feel really nice on my lips. They're the perfect glosses. My personal faveorite is cinnomin (?), the one in the pinkish-red tube. It's amazing! I highly reccomend these, and I will repurchase when I run out. I recomed getting the pack of five travel size ones, which I got for fifteen dollars. I believe the full size glosses are around eight dollars.

Love, love, love this lip gloss. The smell and flavor is just perfect.

I love the smell, taste, and feel of the Mentha Lip Shine.
I seriously LOVE C.O. Bigelow's mentha products.
I don't always wear gloss, but when I do, I LOVE this, even if it's just for the tingle feeling.

Mm :) I remember trying this from a friend in high school. I always said that I wanted to buy it. Finallyyy after some 5-6 years later I ordered one from Amazon. It just arrived today and I am obsessing over the smell and taste lol :D my boyfriend hates sticky lipglosses and this ones more smooth than sticky. And it tastes so mint fresh !!! I love it.

I love this lip product! The Mentha Lip Shine gives a little gloss to the lips (if not applying too much); there's supposedly some benefits of breath-freshening but I don't care for that. The main reason why I like this so much is because I'm allergic to many lip products. The Burt's Bee's and mentha lip shine were the only ones that didn't cause any irritation on my lips; maybe because the ingredients are more natural. The only downside is that it doesn't moisturize the lips very long, I catch myself having to reapply it almost every 30min - 1hour. Definitely wouldn't use this on a windy day, it's a little sticky but not too much where it feels like glue on your lips. But I would definitely purchase this again, I've been using this since high school!

I absolutely love this product! It offers good shine, applied easily, and is not very sticky. The minty smell and the cool feel lasts a good half hour on my lips and it tastes great. It offers good moisture, and just overall amazing. If you were only left with 8 bucks at bath and body works, definitely give this a try!

This is, on my opinion, the best lip conditioner out there. The applicator is smooth an large to cover the lip comfortably and the tingling menthol and freshens breath and smooths while softening flaky skin to easily be buffed away. It's great over lipstick too.

This lip shine is amazing. It adds shine, and is also so soothing to the lips. I've used this as well as the Ultra Mentha and Spearmint varieties, and I love all of them. A great buy!

I've used this product for years and enjoy it very much. It applies smoothly.The mint is cooling and refreshing, a hydrating pick me up through out the day! I wish the feeling lasted longer on my lips, that's the only negative.

This is it. What I have been waiting for my entire 24 years of existence. I tried a lot on my lips, I am a mint lip item junkie. I first buff my lip with the sugar scrub Mint Julip by Lush (sweet tingle there), followed by this lip shine. It sounds like a gloss being called lip shine, but I find it to be very hydrating especially in the crazy weather new jersey has. it even works well with lipsticks (I use it under lipsticks so the lipstick goes on more sheer). I loved it so much I picked up one for everyone this holiday season and 3 for me while they have them cheap. From 7.50-8 to 3 bucks a pop, defiantly worth it. Don't miss out.

Boys love it. ;)

I agree with some reviewers here...this lip gloss/balm offers the good but it only lasts a few minutes. However, it dries my lips much too quick. The minty flavor does help mask bad breath for a bit, but I can get the same effect by buying an Orbit Gum in a Spearmint flavor. Did I mention it is cheaper?

I can't even remember how many tubes of this stuff I've gone through! This is the one lipgloss that is always in my purse, no matter what. It gives me a great shine, moisturizes my lips, and is a great pick me up after a meal! What more could you ask for?
