This is a very emollient lip balm. Like my review for the passionfruit nectar flavor, this moisturizes very well, isn't too thick but thick enough, not very waxy but yet it feels great on your lips. I like the tropical flavor it has, it reminds me of summer but I don't know if I would use it year round because of that. I am a seasonal person and prefer to use products that correspond with seasons, yes I am weird lol but I like to live presently and not necessarily in the future. Overall I like this lip balm but this flavor would be awesome to use in the summer.

so my skin is about the worst you could have oil, acne prone, somewhat sensitive, but for some reason the skin around my eyes can get dry sometimes, &! my lips get REALLY cracked and dry. This is my favorite lip balm i buy 2 at time one to keep in bathroom with the rest of my daily skin care products and one that i carry with me all day every day. i started using this about a year ago when i was still taking accutane and i just never stop because i have't had dry chapped lips for over a year! that's how good it works and why i keep re buying it.

This lip balm is decent, but I don't think I'll buy it again. The packaging is nice - colorful, appealing, and a twist-up design. It wasn't as cheap as say, Chapstick, but definitely not too pricey. I love coconut, which is mostly why I bought it, and while the scent is summery (reminds me of sun tan lotion), I didn't like it at first; it's grown on me a little. The texture is thick and a little waxy, and once it warms up on your lips it feels fairly moisturizing. But after it wears off, my lips are still dry. If you apply consistently, it might prevent severe chapping, but it doesn't heal your lips or have long-term benefits. Also, every time I apply it, I notice a slight burning or tingling, as if it's irritating my lips. I'll keep it around until I run out, but I'm looking for something new to try.

This is my basic, go-to stick lip balm. No matter where in the world I may be, I am never far from one of these. I have them all over the place: one on my desk at work, one on my desk at home, one with my makeup, one in my purse, one by the bed, one in the basement where we watch TV, and like 5 extra unopened ones in a drawer. I love that this product is cheap, easy to pick up at the drugstore, smells nice (but not at all overpowering -- just a hint of coconut as it goes on) and really moisturizes well. It even works well on cuticles in a pinch. And, importantly (to me), it is cruelty-free. Will continue to buy again and again.

Mhmmmm! I love coconut scented things and this smells divine. I lyke that it's natural and organic with no animal testing. Nice feeling on the lips, definitely there but not heavy or sticky as some chap sticks are.

A nice lightly moisturizing lip balm that smells nice. Since I have to reapply it too often to maintain moist lips, I'm not sure I would repurchase it if it were not on sale.

The search for the perfect lip balm is over. I adore this product so much! It lasts for such a long time & smells like a straight up coconut (which anything that's coconut scented is my favorite so that's a plus). Just the fact that it has SPF in it adds to it's awesomeness. My lips were very dry before now they're soft an moisturized. As far as packaging goes I like it a lot. One con, DO NOT forget this in your car or leave it in a hot place. It will melt like crazy. Def would buy again

Whenever people ask me what is your favorite lip balm I always tell them, this one. I've probably been through 15 or more, and I always keep coming back to the coconut creme one. I honestly hate the smell and taste of coconut but this is my one exception. I found some at Rite Aid and bought two right away not knowing when I see this little tubes of joy again!

I've tried almost every lip balm available in the drugstore, from Blistex to Burt's Bees and everything in between. I use Aquaphor on my lips at night, so during the day I just need a simple moisturizing balm to maintain and keep my lips hydrated, and I always prefer something that smells and tastes good. Most drugstore lip balms either don't moisturize well, moisturize too much and are too thick to wear during the day, smell or taste funny, or don't last long enough. This balm is none of the above. I've always overlooked it because I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but it smells amazing. It has more of a tropical vanilla scent, making it perfect for summertime. The balm itself is smooth and buttery, and really feels like it's sinking in and moisturizing instead of just sitting on top. The staying power is great, it easily lasts a few hours. I do find myself constantly wanting to reapply, not because I have to but because I love how good it smells and feels. The good thing about that is you can reapply often without getting that waxy, coated feeling some balms will leave you with if you use too much. I love this as a daily lip balm but as a night balm it works very well, too. I apply it right before bed and my lips feel hydrated, smooth, and plump when I wake up in the morning. I would definitely repurchase, and I'll probably be trying some other flavors once I run out of this one.

Edit: I had to bump my rating down to a two. It seems like after a week or so of use this balm loses that smooth texture and sweet coconut scent. It becomes gritty and just doesn't smell as nice. I won't be repurchasing.
