I bought this because it's vegan, and in the first few ingredients are shea butter and waxes, so I thought it would be creamy and smooth like I was looking for, but it definitely is not. It is thin and greasy, and it's gone in about 15 minutes. My lips don't feel moisturized at all after using this.

KARITE LIPS CHANGED INGREDIENTS. This WAS PREVIOUSLY my favorite lip balm until they recently changed the formula. The first two ingredients used to be Sunflower oil and Shea butter, BUT NOW the first two are Candelila wax and Castor oil. The formula no longer has superior moisturizing properties, so sad! And probably shouldn't be marketed as a shea butter lip balm unless the make it a main …Read more

Simply the only lip balm they works for me! I have had very dry, chapped lips since childhood; no amount of water drinking, healthy oil eating or supplementation has helped. So I've tried more than my fair share of lip balms over the years in the attempt to remedy the situation. Some that I have tried: La Mer, Sisley, By Terry, Nuxe, Fresh Sugar, Carmex, Blistex, Lanisoh, Aquaphor, Vaseline …Read more

I had preferred EOS vanilla balm to this. While I love the ingredients and in theory this balm should be HG, the things I disliked about it are as follows: <br>
1. NO slip! really waxy (even though wax is on the bottom of the list). Even $3 Dr.Bronners provides better slip and moisturization. <br>
2. For such "immense" moisturizers like they claim, where's …

This is my HG for soft, moisturized lips! It also smells like sugar cookies. I only need to use it a few times a day for soft, chap-free lips all day. I recommend it to everyone I know! I love that the product is actually the full size of the tube, it's not cut off midway or anything that makes you feel like you're getting ripped off. It's a great deal for a great product!

This is my absolute favorite. I buy it whenever I can, but the bin for this at Whole Foods is often empty--crap, sold out again! I agree with another reviewer that it can feel dry when applying, but I think it is because the ingredients are natural. (Have you ever used pure natural shea butter? You sort of have to melt it in your hands first before applying it or else it is crumbly.) This works …Read more

This lip balm has amazing ingredients in it. Smells wonderful and feels really nice on my lips. The only thing I don't like about this lip balm is if feels a little dry when first putting it on, like it takes the stick a little bit to warm up. Also, my packing broke:( I can look past these because of the amazing lip ingredients.

EDIT 2/1/13: In response to a review written about "those who claim this is your HG, how many have you tried?" I've tried tons. I love Bronner's lip balm too, but none moisturize MY lips like Karite Lips does. We're all different. As we say on MUA: YMMV, no reason to be rude. 3 Years later and this is *still* my HG. I've purchased many, many different lip balms …Read more

“Karite Lips” Shea Butter Lip Balm with Vanilla extract by Mode de Vie cured my dry peeling lips when nothing else would! Light cocoa & vanilla scent.

Great lip balm! Keeps my lips soft and chap-free for a long time - no need to constantly reapply. Definitely the best for the <$7 it costs. (Dr Hauschka and Pangea Organics may be equally good but they cost about double.)
