Decent enough, quite waxy, but nothing special- wont buy again but nothing actively bad about it

An OK lip balm, nothing spectacular but it also didn't dry out my lips even more as some other lip products do (especially Labello). I like that it has no petroleum, but recently I've been told that natural waxes have the same occluding effect.

I like many Lavera products, but I didn't like this one.It is a very cheap lip balm, but it was hard to apply and it didn't do much for my cracked lips. The other, coloured lip balms from lavera are way better than this one.

I really wanted to like this - all natural, nice packaging etc. But it makes the corners of my mouth crack and gives me a red rash around my mouth...
I've had this reaction to other all natural lip balm before (Alverde calendula lipbalm, Watsons honey lip balm) so I think its an ingredient in the products that I am allergic to... I read elsewhere that beeswax causes these symptoms in another reviewer so I think it might be this.
Anyway, I liked the tube, the texture was rich but not too hard, there is no smell, no colour, its good at moisturising - I put it on before bed and when I woke up in the middle of the night my lips were still well moisturised. But I found that it got used quite quick - I've been using it for nearly a week and I've used about half a centimeter already.

Average lip balm; very, very waxy on the lips. I wouldn't say it's super moisturising, which surprises me given the ingredients! I do like however, that it has no petroleum and can be purchased at a reasonable price -£2.45

I really like this product (except for the smell). I use it every night before bed and I have not gotten one single cracked lip. Because of the good result, I can overlook the smell (dried carrot- if u can imagine that). This is not available in Canada so I have to get it through ebay- which is a lot cheaper than some stores. Would definitely repurchase until I fine another product with the same results less the smell.

Really nice protective and restorative lip balm and the good thing is that you can lick it over your lips knowing that not harmful ingredients will go into your body :)

This is my favourite lip balm in the world, I found it while randomly wandering the stores in Berlin. It's not tacky and does not slide over my lips and moisturized well enough for dry Australian weather. It's the first lip balm brand that I have used up two tubes of and the only thing preventing me from getting replacements is that they are really expensive where I live.

Purchased as replacement for Weleda lipbalm, lost somewhere in a gym. I have several; this was the gym-bag one, and lips needed balming badly, being of the dry persuasion. In my part of the world, this is easier to find and a lot cheaper (1/2 to 1/3 price - EUR 2.90) than Weleda.
Waxy and nicely moisturizing. Feels, as reviewers below say, very like the Weleda Everon; and has similar ingredients. It doesn't have the W's lovely rose taste with hints of honey and vanilla; the L has no flavour. The Man steals this one too.
BONUS DOUBLE-DUTY: EYE BALM!!! Can be used as an intensive night eye-cream. Dig a little out of the stick, rub between fingers to melt, and apply around eye. I figured this out from mitsuko's post on Dr Hauschka's Eye Contour Day Balm: she worked out it's very like Dr H's lip-balm-in-a-pot in formula so can double duty; and Dr H's lip balm is not unlike the Lavera (except the Lavera is unscented/unflavoured). Does smooth out lines around eyes; but a little greasy, and make-up slips around on top. Recommended for night-time, but not for day-time use.
