This is a nice lip scrub. Not fantastic, not terrible, just nice. I love the little scoop that comes with it but I wish there was a slot in the jar to store it. The scoop is nice, don’t need to dig my fingers in it. The consistency is good. It’s slippery and the sugar granules aren’t too big. I don’t recommend licking this one off, it doesn’t taste very good. The smell is not what I expected. I …Read more

This comes in a chubby twist-up, just like the regular Kiss balms. It has a sweet minty scent that’s not too strong and fades over time. The sugar granules are very fine and don’t scratch or tug. The balm itself is nice and smooth and stays on after the granules dissolve. I like the stick because I don’t love messy pots of sugar scrubs. This is mess free and since my lips aren’t that dry or flaky …Read more

I wanted to love this so much. To my nose, it's not fruity at all. It ended up smelling like EL White Linen on my skin. The bottle is adorable. Nice thick glass with a screw on lid. 12ml extrait for $9.50. I got the Opopanax, too, and I love that one. At this price, I'll probably try them all.

I really like this. It's a spicy, musky, somewhat powdery delight. Smells like it's in the same family as Sage Machado Amber, Kuumba Made Sweet Rain and, strangely, BBW Black Currant Vanilla (but not as sweet). It would be 5 lippies all the way if I didn't have to reapply after 2 hours. Of course, YMMV. Paid about $13 for a 10ml roll-on.

Not to be confused with the Revlon Kissing Balm Stain. These are lip balms in a chubby twist-up pencil. Originally, there was cherry, apple, strawberry, peach, pomegranate and plum shown in an ad. At the store, there was no pomegranate and no plum. They were replaced by coconut and berry.

I got strawberry, cherry and apple. The gloss feels nice and smooth. There is a slight tint to …

Got the roll-on. I wanted to like this so much. But I get nothing. No smell at all. I know some people have issues smelling musks or ambers but I have never had an issue until this. I even took it to work and let a bunch of people try it and only one of them could smell it. At first application, I get a teeny whiff of something sweet but after about 5 minutes, it's gone. I tried a little, I …Read more

I love this! It's a caramelly, sweet vanilla musk. Lasts over 6 hours with just a dab. Not too loud but others can definitely smell it. Paid about $9 including shipping for a roll-on oil (my WF doesn't sell this line and that seems to be where most people find it). If I had to pick, I would say it's close to L'Aromarine Vanille but with more caramel.

I can't add too much more than previous reviewers but I do have a few scents I didn't see already. I always try to compare to existing scents only because I find it's easier to decide if I even want to try it.
Dalal- my favorite of the bunch. Smells similar to my beloved original Venezia. Does stay close, not too strong. Vanilla, caramel, spiced fruit.

White Musk- …

I like many Nubian Heritage products but this scent is my favorite. It's so comforting and mellow. If I I had to compare it to something, I would say it's similar to Mugler Angel. Doesn't smell just like it but it's in the same family- sweet, warm, fruity patchouli. I usually do not like patchouli but whatever it's mixed with makes it amazing. The lotion itself is nice …Read more

I can't get enough of this! Got the biggest bottle after buying the roll-on first. It's a creamy, herbal, incense-y smell on my skin and I just love it. Lasts about 4-5 hours depending on how much I spray and it has low to medium sillage, more of a skin scent. If it lasted longer, it would be 5 stars all the way. It smells similar to a long discontinued Aveda scent called Pure-fume 100% …Read more
