I do not like the mint flavour. Moreover, the mint is not good for my dry lips, it makes it even worse. I will go back to my absolute favourite: the sisley lip balm - nothing can beat this one!

I have chronically dry lips and am constantly trying (and reviewing!) products to help. I don't know the cause of them, and I've never found anything that made a longterm difference (many thanks to...

$50 for lip balm seems crazy. But I believe every woman should treat herself so I decided to shell out the cash. I've been using this for two weeks and I never want to buy cheap lip balm ever...

Firstly the bad: unhygienic packaging, it's not always possible to wash my hands before applying so I end up using a cotton swab to apply which wastes some product in the process. Despite that (and...

Basically a sugary tasting version of Jack Black lip balm (<$10) in a less hygienic container. Save your money (and dirty fingers) and go for the Jack Black.

Not a bad balm, but nothing special. Other brands do just the same, even better for only a small fraction of the price. Also the smell is a bit weird, it's kind of citrusy I guess, but not...
