This gel smells good, lightweight and absorb quickly. It soothes my sensitive skin, small burn marks I have while cooking, but just a little bit, and it doesn't provide enough moisturize for my oily skin. Not worth the prize ($38) at all.
My skin dries out and burns after using it. I hate the tube, they should put this kind of liquid juice into a bottle instead.
I have tried many lip balm and this one is the only that get on well with my lips during winter. At first I didn't expect too much but I was knocked out. This hydrates, moisturizes and exfoliates, I have baby soft lips every time I wake up. I wanted to buy Cherry Bourbon but it was out of stock so I finally bought this one, honestly I don't love its bubble gum smell but the quality covered it up. And you should keep the seal in case the lid is not tight, like mine.
Pros: - Cheap (and cheaper if you buy them during Missha's sale event) - Dry quickly - Easy to apply - Good color payoff Cons: chips easily, sometimes it chips just after 4 hours of applying. Don't use their glossy top coat, it just make you need to reapplying your polishes faster (but their matte top coat is quite decent)

I used it as a lip balm. My lips were soft and smooth immediately after applying. However, when it dries, my lips are drier, cracked, hurt and even bleeding. But I didn't throw it because it works well with my elbows.

I bought this after reading many good reviews and I was disappointed. The smell (I have this in Black Tea & Blackberry), packaging, price, etc. are nice but it doesn't provide enough moisture for my lips. I can't use it at night or in winter.

I suffered serious acne during my teen period and my skin now is very sensitive and always red. At the first apply, I fell in love with this product' smell. It's a little bit greasy with my skin during summer month but I didn't mind, I used it as my night moisturizer. Then I found out that this serum made my skin irritated if I didn't combine it with other Origins products (cleanser, toner, mask, etc). It's still okay, I had an opportunity to try more from Origins. However, they didn't make any difference on my skin and after around 3 months of using this serum, my face was more red, my pores were more enlarged and if I have hormonal pimples, it made them worse. I stopped using it immediately and then my skin irritated with everything I put on my face. That terrible time lasted about 2 or 3 months and during that time, I couldn't use any skin care product except cleanser and toner.
