I have 4 different korres lip butters and this is my least favorite...I hate how it makes my lips white! I've even tried to put my rosebud under it and it still looks horrible (and defeats the purpose) I think that Korres definitely has some better colors out there (Jasmine, Quince, Pomegranate) I also wish they didn't make the packaging so round and deep...I had to use a lipstick brush when I had gel nails (they were a bit longer than usual) and getting the product out was a pain in the butt! I'm not a fan of this color....I wish it were more sheer.

I absolutely adore this lip butter. I have owned it for over a year- and it was always one of those products (like many that I have) that floats from my purse, to the nighstand, to my desk, etc. not paying much attention to...well this past fall/winter has been brutal to my lips- I have EXTREMELY dry, flaky, cracking, peeling, lips that seem to never get better. I have tried so many products- and this one stands out above them all. Not only does it intensely moisturize my lips- it repairs the damage and KEEPS them hydrated throughout the next day. I noticed my lips were immediately better the next day, and I can even go 1-2 nights without using it- and the results stay the same! It's a little pricey, and the pot is not the most ideal- but I could care less since I have found a product that actually does MORE than it claims!

I'm disappointed with this product because I am a big fan of the other 2 Korres Lip Butters in my stash - Quince and Pomegranate. When I first tried this one on, I did not like the whitish color that it imparted. I also felt like it accentuated the scaly texture of my chapped lips. So, I decided that maybe it would be better used as an overnight treatment. However, when I woke up in the morning, my lips seemed to be in worse condition than they were the night before!

Korres Lip Butter in Guava is a staple in my life. I love the scent and I love how buttery soft it makes my lips feel. The packaging, however, makes it necessary to have a lip brush with me whenever I'm out at school or work or some place where I can't always wash or sanitize my hands before applying. The packaging is a pretty annoying factor but the product more than makes up for it. As I said before, it smells heavenly and I love how it feels and looks on my lips. The lip butter in guava is actually a white pigment and it's a very very subtle white when applied to lips but in a really effortlessly pretty way. I would definitely buy this product again, I have already repurchased it a number of times.

Just keeping it short: It is moisturizing and smells fantastic! The thick and creamy texture makes my lips feel so plump--in a full of moisture sort of way--and soft.

I've been using ths the entire winter and I really like it. It helps me with my very dry lips. I use it overnight and my lips stay hydrated and retain moisture much better. I like the smell and texture and I love that Korres is such a natural brand. My only minor problem with this product is the color, if you overuse it may leave a whitish color. Other than that, I'm happy with this.

I like this product but its not a HG. I got it in a Christmas kit with the shower gel and body butter. I love Korres so was curious to try their lip butters so I was happy to buy this in the kit. I use this by itself or as a primer under my lip stick for smoother application. If you put too much on you will get a white film but I don't have that problem as I use more sparingly. I wouldn't recommend this as a night treatment or something for severely chapped lips (Smiths rosebud salve is better for that). Its more something to put on when you don't want to look too "made up" and gives a gorgeous "your lips but better" look
Pros: moisturizing, smooth, great colour and I love the pot
Cons: Too expensive and I think I would like to see what else is out there before I would come back to this colour. I would try some of the other colours first.
Overall? I love the product but its not my HG colour so I won't repurchase this colour but I am happy I have it.

This lip butter smells more of coconut to me than guava. I really wanted to love this lip butter but it just didn't work for me. I think I would actually like it if it didn't leave a white film on my lips. I also think it should be called a lip balm rather than lip butter as it didn't feel all that creamy to me. I also bought quince and plum and the quince is much much more buttery.

It smells great, but that's all. It didn't moisturize my lips at all, if anything, they were drier only 1 hour later. It's too greasy and leaves an unpleasant layer of whitish substance on your lips. It would've lasted very short I guess, since only a few days of using it made a big dent. I returned it.

I love this lip butter! It smells great, although it can be a tad over powering, feels great and lasts long. I drink a lot of water, so I'm constantly reapplying lip balm in general so I'm not sure how long it really lasts. As for moisture, amazing! When my lips are chappy, I apply this and my lips soak it all up! Makes me lips very smooth and best of all, it's natural! I don't like that it's in a pot because when I'm out and about there's no way I want to stick my dirty finger in there. That's the only downfall to this product.

I have this in Quince and it is a great lip butter. My lips are dry and cracked and my previous HG La Mer was not getting the job done. I had Quince in my purse and started using it instead and I am really surprised that it is doing a far better job at a lot less cost! I just wish it came in a tube for the purse as the little pot can make for a mess on the fingertips. Highly recommend!

I'm in love with this product. It has a great texture. I am trying to use only all-natural products for my daily use stuff. I am in love with colored balms lately and I was disappointed by Burt's Bees tinted lip balm, but I can't wait to buy this lip butter in more colors - I REALLY hope I get a sephora gift card for Christmas. I was surprised that it only costs $12, I was expecting it to cost much more. $12 isn't much for a high quality, all-natural lip balm, especially a tinted one and it is .21 oz, pretty good size. Whenever I get to Sephora to do some shopping for myself, I will be looking at Korres products.
Update: I like this product ok, but the smell is a little overpowering aand it sinks into my lips after only a half hour and leaves them feeling dry and unprotected - like, I can feel them chapping. Rating was originally 5 but down to 2 because it has no staying power, an overpowering flavor, comes in a pot, and is too expensive for what it is. But it does feel good on my lips and is mostly natural.

I love this lip butter. Not many lip treatment works for me because i have really dry, chapped lips. This really works for me and is super creamy. The scent is light and nice.
I don't like the container and always prefer tube form, just really don't think its sanitary to dip into the product with my finger. Love Korres mandarin lip butter in lipstick too.

This balm moisturizes well unlike some other lip balms I've tried (Murad pomegranate lip treatment...). However, the name is misleading since it doesn't smell like guava at all. Like other reviewers, I'm also not a fan of the packaging. I usually apply this at night since it leaves a whitish cast on my lips if I slather it on (a little goes a long way). If I use just a little, it doesn't leave me with white lips. I've tried the colored lip butters and this one is the most moisturizing so far.
I won't be repurchasing this after it's used up because Kiss My Face lip balm is as good or better for 1/3 the price.

I really love Korres Lip Butters. Guava is my favorite. A little goes a long way. If you use too much it leaves a white residue. It makes my lips super soft.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Great product, very moisturizing. I use it after showering at night and that is the only time I use it but it has kept my lips in great shape. No annoying peeling/dry lips since I've been using this. Love it!

It's OK. I do believe it does the job but maybe it dries out a little too quickly. It's not heavy to the point where I feel like my lips are greasy. It smells really nice too!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Olive, Warm Hair: Black, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
Not a fan really. I feel like it just sits on top of my lips with that horrible white film. It's a pain to only be able to use this at night. If I use it during the day, I look like I'm a corpse. If you check out the ingredients list, it's not all that natural either. Oh, it smells nice (but nothing like guava to me). Will not be purchasing this again.

I like this a lot. I'm really picky about lip products, and my lips also tend to be quite dry and flaky, so the fact that I like this so much is saying something. I don't get the 'white film' everyone is complaining about... It's clear, maybe unless you pack on a super thick layer but that's just wasteful and unnecessary. The texture is great and it's super hydrating. I don't love that it comes on a pot, but I only ever use this at home/at night so i always just wash my hands. Price is a little steep but IMO it's worth it.

Pros: moisturizing, smooth, cute packaging
ons: expensive, the colour isn't clear, it's actually like a white frosty colour
Overall? I love how it's moisturizing and goes on smooth, but I won't be buying it in this colour specifically, but in general, I will definitely be buying some Korres lip butter, but not really in this colour
