I truly love this stuff. It's a tad thick, but smoothes well over the lips. It's super, super shiny and it's very moisturizing. This stuff has actually gotten me compliments on how amazing my lips look, and questions as to what gloss I was wearing. It smells good, and no, it does not actually freshen the breath, but the mint scent it strong, so it may seem that way. Plus, the mint is so very refreshing as you breathe it in. I'd recommend this for sure. I haven't used it in some time, mainly due to not getting the BBW SAS to stock up.

Omg I wish this was sold in uk stores! My brothers ex brought me this fom when she was in Florida and I have to say this is the best gloss out there! It's so shiny, not sticky and the minty fresh taste/smell is lovely! I use it sparingly tho as I don't think I'll ever get another

I LOVE ALL CO BIGELOW'S LIP PRODUCTS!! They all have a pleasant yet strong minty aroma, but the cooling sensation it provides when applied is out of this world!! It promises fresh breath, which isn't true. It just makes you smell like you have fresh breath because of the strong scent. The taste is great and I really like the shine and colors and shimmer of the vast array of varietes.

Love this stuff!! I first got this in a swap and fell in *love* with the shine. The applicator is awesome - you don't have to get any goop on your finger - and they tingly feel is amazing. Gloss is slick, minimally sticky and lasts for at least 2 hours at a time. The ultra-mentha is awesome, and the tinted mentha shines and the gold-glitter ginger mentha are also pretty great. Would recommend to anyone.

BEST. LIPBALM. EVER. I keep a million of these around so I never have to go without it! This feels so good on chapped lips and moisturizes like nothing else, the mint extracts are really refreshing and help plump up lines on my lips, making them look super healthy. Plus, it doubles as a breath mint in a pinch!

I'll start off by saying I have extremely dry lips, and I cannot wear lipsticks or many lip glosses because of it. I tend to stick to Vaseline, blistex medex, and vitamin e lip balm from TBS. Anything else just makes my dry lips look terrible, peel, flake and leaves me with a total mess.
However, I love anything with menthol in it, so I HAD to try this when one of my friends came back with it from a trip to the US. I LOVE it. It's not the most moisturizing thing I've used, but it doesn't have any negative affects, so that's a bonus. It smells and tastes AMAZING, it's very shiny which is a good change from my boring lip balms. After using this once I was hooked. It's hard to get this here in Canada, so my American cousin and I swap products every now and then! I've tried the ultra mentha, mentha, spearmint, cinnamint, the lip tints, and the lip exfoliator, and I love them all!
I only gave this a 4 because it's not as moisturizing as I need, but in all other areas it is amazing.
I'm not sure of the price, because as I said my cousin swaps with me.
Definitely love these lip balms, and wish there was a Bath and Body works closer so I could try more of their products!

I absolutely love this stuff. I have been using it for a few years now and always have a tube of one of the C O Bigelow lippies in my pocket. So refreshing and moisturizing. Funny that I now have all of my friends using it too. They also make tinted ones which are great too. I will never stop buying these. Regular price is $7.70 at Bath and Body Works or C.O. Bigelow, but Bath and Body Works always has them on sale buy 2 get 1 free. Also watch for the holiday and summer ones every year!

I am pleasantly surprised that I love this! I received this in a swap and hesitated trying it for quite awhile. I've experienced major drying of my lips from some products containing peppermint oil. I was just sure that this would have the same effect. But it didn't dry them out one bit! Quite the opposite-it felt very nice and moisturizing. The product stayed on my lips a decent amount of time and there's no disputing that the fresh minty taste is a winner in my book. Great little lipgloss and I would definitely purchase another when this runs out.

AMAZING. But extremely minty so if you don't like that or are sensitive to fragrance and stuff this might be a miss for you. It tastes so good, haha. Very glossy but it does what it says.

Staying power is horrible, dries out my lips, and i hate the tube. I like the root beer flavored one but i have not been able to find it again. I dislike all the other flavors... Will not repurchase.

Love it, love it, love it!!! Keep some at the office, in the car, in my purse, on my dresser, everywhere. My SO calls it his "dessert". LOL!!!

I have chronically chapped lips and love this line. The Rose Shimmer is my favorite of the color tints, but all of the Ultra Mentha products are great. My only complaint is that they wear off quickly, but the pros far out weight the cons.

Like the previous reviewer stated, Burt Bees has nothing on this stuff! Not only does this feel tingly, it tastes like spearmint as well! Whenever I put some on, I can't help but remember chewing Wrigley's gum as a child. It moisturizes and inexpensive. Keeps my lips looking supple so this will be another staple in my make-up kit. In fact, I'm planning to buy Cinnamint soon. Will repurchase.

I love this mascara it works so well & really moisturizes your lips. I love the minty smell & taste, & a tube of this lasts forever.

I have several of these mentha glosses in different tints. They are tingly and cool feeling on the lips. I really like the minty scent. Thankfully this gloss is very moisturizing and I feel like it smoothes my lips. They go on sale often, so it's not as expensive. I do think they can be a little gloppy and thicker than I would like, hence the 4 lippies instead of 5.

Honestly, Burt's Bees has nothing on this. I love the ultra mentha feel and smell. The first time I used it I started freaking out, because I never felt something so strong before. I thought I was getting an allergic reaction. But I really like how fast it works. Within minutes my lips are smoother and the dead skin peels off without bleeding (gross I know). But I have thick lips, so they dry easily as well. When I use other types of lip balm (I used this as a lip balm more than lip gloss) it takes several hours and many applications.
The only thing I dislike is the price. It is kind of pricey when other things like it are only half the price, but I go to BBW twice everywhere when they're selling these for only $2.50 and I stock pile it for six months.
