This does nothing for me.
I received this free at a charity event and after finding it thick and waxy, I've been using it as a night treatment. I go to bed with this lipsaver on and wake up and it's still there! Doesn't absorb or make any difference to lips. I wouldn't say I have super dry lips but they are flakey enough to ensure that I am rarely able to wear lipstick.
Still trying to find my HG lipbalm.

This is a pretty waxy product that I would characterize more as a protectant than a balm, as it doesn't absorb into the lips very well. The consistency is, as many note, similar to vaseline, but I think it most closely resembles Aquaphor (or Carmex), which is slightly thicker than vaseline. Basically Aquaphor with a nice honey scent.
I like this product because I like Aquaphor and Carmex, but this is really not worth the price. IF you want a pretty thick, salve-like ointment for your lips I would recommend Rosebud Salve or, even better, if you were considering paying Molton Brown prices anyway, Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour skin protectant (and just use it on your lips). These both absorb better into the lips, last longer than the MB lipsaver, and are more effective as treatments (great overnight!).

Waxy Vaseline in a cheap looking tube. It moisturizes lips but so does Vaseline . . .

I've been using the travel size of this, and it keeps my lips moisturised for a looooong time! I like it so much that I went to buy the full-sized version. My lips are soft, supple and well cared for. I like it better than Vaseline.

I found this on clearance at C.O. Biegelow for 75% off. The regular price was $18.00, I believe. This is a lot like Vaseline, but super-charged. I use this at bed time and I wake up for soft, smooth lips.
This is my HG, I even went back a few days later to pick up a few more and they were sold-out.

HG for me. I put it on my lips before going to bed and when I wake up it feels newly applied. It completely stays there which is a major + for me considering absolutely everything else I use fails. It's not number 1 in terms of actually sinking into my lips and moisturizing but it stays on long enough to make up for that. My lips are usually dry and peel but since using lip saver I haven't had any problems like that. I'm on my third tube and intend on using this for a very long time :)
EDIT: No longer using this. Didn't like how it wasn't actually moisturising my lips.

I would have to agree with some of the other reviews, this lip balm is a bit of a disappointment. It is like a thick version of Vaseline.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
In many ways I find this similar to plain old Vaseline in that it kind of just sits and slides around on top of my lips. So in reality it's not that moisturising as the moisture is kind of superficial. Itís very expensive for what it is and definitely not worth the money. The tube packaging is small and quite cute but nothing special. I certainly wonít be repurchasing.

This balm is amazing. Its like lotion for my lips.it totally sinks in and moisturizes them.You just really need to rub it in and rub your lips together for a while.it makes my lips so moist, that sometimes it looks like i'm wearing a lip plumper.i've been using this for 6 yrs and i've not found anything better.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Out of all those lip balms and treatments that I have used, this is by far the best. It's a must have for me. I have very very dry lips, it crack everyday and I end up having the tendency to bite my lips. I cant apply lipstick due to this problem, but ever since I found out about this lip treatment from MB, I can use lipstick again! thou it's pricy, but I definitely find it useful. It work miracles. this is a product that will always be in my makeup kit.

I can understand why this product received poor reviews...it really is similar to vaseline, but about 500 times more expensive. I gave it 4 lippies because I didn't find anything "wrong" with the product beside it being overpriced.

I am completely addicted to it. My lips feel so much better when I have this on. I really cannot explain it. It does not absorb very well and needs to be re-applied all of the time, but I hate using anything else. I have large lips that get dry easily and this is the only thing that works.I probably have at least 10 tubes of the stuff around my house.

I buy this every winter because my lips couldn't survive without it. As someone mentioned, it doesn't really sink in, but I've yet to find another product that makes my lips as smooth and soft as this does. I find that it's too heavy for the warmer months though.

I got this for Christmas. I was running low on my Bobbi Brown lip balm and was so often misplacing it that I thought it would be a good idea to ask for a new pot for Christmas, but my mum and dad couldn't remember if I said Bobbi Brown or Molton Brown! So in spite of showing them the silver pot that my Bobbi Brown lip balm comes in, I got this. I used to want this before discovering the Bobbi Brown lip balm. However, when I tried this I found this to be really good. Very moisturising. I like the feel of it on my lips. It took me a while to appreciate my Bobbi Brown lip balm, but I instantly liked this. The only thing is it doesn't last as long as my Bobbi Brown lip balm - which, in my opinion, is exceptional - so you do have to reapply more often, but that's okay. I may buy this again, but, like Bobbi Brown, it's quite expensive. I think the Bobbi Brown just beats this, but I like it enough to give it 4 lippies, and I know that Bobbi Brown is an acquired taste.

I got this free from a BA flight and I would never spend money on it. Hours after I put it on it still feels like it's just 'sitting there' and not sinking in. I don't like the faint smell. I gave it a 3 because while I wouldn't pay for it, I will try and use the tube up as at least it doesn't feel like it's doing my lips any harm. They do feel quite soft when I've used it but that's probably due to the product not sinking in properly.

This lip balm is ok, but certainly not anything special... it smells vaguely of beeswax, is thick and white looking on the lips, and doesn't really do that much in the way of moisturising. If you have flaky lips, the product sticks to the flaky bits and makes them really white - it looks really bad! It's ok if you get it free, but it's certainly not worth paying for - there are much better lip balms out there.

I Love This! At first I thought "Whats the big deal, its like vaseline". Now I use it all the time. It makes my lips look rosy and they are definitely softer. I put on some lip stain with this over it and I am good to go.

I got this on my BA flight too and i really am a pretty big fan. Since everyone has been comparing it to Vaseline, i have this experience....i was using this for a while and my lips were bloody happy, this brought out the natural colour of my lips well, was very moisturising and stayed really long until i lost it and so i got back to using Vaseline. And Vaseline wasn't all that anymore, i mean it moisturises the lips when applied but wears off really fast and is less 'greasy'. But i finally found lipsaver again and ive realised what a great product this really is. You can apply this and sip your coffee without worrying about dry lips or touching up. It is greasier than Vaseline and gives the moisturised lips look without looking glossy. Infact it gives the 'im-flirty-without-trying-too-hard' look. I would never spend such a big deal on lip balms but im gonna use it as long as im getting this on my flights.

Thank GOD someone just threw this little pot at me and I didn't pay a dime for it. When I saw it was Molton Brown and commented on how it's usually expensive she just said she preferred fruity lip balms. Well now I see how she just tossed this ... vaseline. I was completely shocked at how plain and unimpressive this stuff is. Just a little less greasy than vaseline. No thanks
