I love the feeling of this (kinda whipped) and the smell. It is not what I expected smell wise, it is lighter and not as sweet, but thankfully it smells better on me than it does in the container and I ended up loving it.

Everyone says it smells like blueberries and mine does not, so I am thinking I got old product. Mine smells kind of like crayons. Otherwise, I like the consistency of it but it is very heavy and needs time to dry before my skin can drink it in. Taking a lippy off because of the smell and it's a little too heavy to use and go, it's more of "night at home" lotion.

Great scent, seems to have alot of orange notes to it. It's heavy and you need to let it breathe after applying it, but eventually my skin does seem to absorb it. I like the Mango Whip Body Lotion better, you can just slather it on and go without the "drying time" so I took a lippy off for that.

This product made me a believer in The Body Shop line of lotions. I have sensitive skin, and my skin just drinks this in and it feels nothing but silky and natural. I've been dealing with a rash, and I can even apply it to irritated skin and it makes what was dry and scaly feel totally normal (even though the rash is still visible, at least it feels ok!). I chose this one for the scent actually, I smell alot of orange in it along with the mango. On the down side, it's a "fluffy" lotion so you use alot of volume as you go, so I've been through half a bottle in a week which is a rarity for me. I am sure I will be buying more though.
Since discovering juicy tubes a few years ago, I have purchased every one I could get my hands on. Smoothies are not my favorite. The are not my least favorite either, the Pop series gets that distinction because the "cooling" effect feels more like a burning on my lip. Smoothies are fairly up to JT standards but go on thinner than the standard JT gloss, and so don't seem to last as long or feel as good on your lips. Those of you that think JT's are too thick and/or too sticky will probably love the Smoothies line! But for me I like a thicker gloss that stays on an entire night.
I love JT and I do mean love, I wear it every day and 24/7. I have about 60 shades or so I have amassed over a few years, but the POP series I have given away as the freeze effect is just too strong and makes my lips feel like they are burning. I give em three lippies because aside from the burn they are great glosses and up to JT standards, but if you have sensitive lips you might have the same problem.
I ended up giving this one away, it's not bad I just prefer warmer tones in a pink - red - coral - plum spectrum. It's very shimmery, the scent and flavor is butterscotch maybe and not offensive? Didn't think to try it over another color, it might be a good pick me up shade.
Very pretty sheer coral red, with a hint of glitter, safe to apply without a mirror and not look silly. Perfectly smooth application like a jelly, melon scent and flavor. Good stuff.
It's the palest sheer milky pink, so don't buy it for color- buy it because it smells great and is great for your lips. There's no pigment, no freeze, no glitter and no shimmer, but it's one you can apply anywhere without a mirror without fear. The smell is pink grapefruit? pink marshmallow? Something sweet and yummy that I like. I call it a "just for me" gloss that I can wear all the time.
Lo and behold, a Juicy Tubes called Peach with a peach scent and flavor! So yummy. Otherwise it is a sheer gloss, almost colorless on, with an almost imperceptable amount of a glimmer to it that gives it a beautiful extra shine. One of my favorite "put on any time" glosses.
This is part of a set of 3 "Mood" - this is the orange one. It's a coral orange gloss with a nice coral orange shimmer. I think the smell is maybe peach? Otherwise it's the perfect JT application and smooth feel.

This is in the Cherie set of 3, it's a beautiful pale pink gloss with a pearlescent glittery shimmer to it. It's another one that some may prefer to wear over a pigmented lipstick or gloss to brighten it up as opposed to a briliant natural look. It has a slight watermelon? scent to it.

This one is scented blackberry or blueberry- very fruity and yummy! It goes on as a sheer purple wine berry shade. There's no freeze and no glitter or shimmer to it, just a simple tinted gloss in a lucious shade.
This gloss gives a good berry tone to the lips. It not a freeze or a glitter, and I think the scent might actually be plum (but don't hold me to it). I wear it often as a no nonsense shade for work and stuff.
This shade is a warm copper shimmer over plum, very nice if you want something different. It's another scent I can't place, it might be a tea scent or black currant, but it's sweet and the gloss goes on smooth and makes your lips feel like glass.
