Not a huge fan of this balm

You know when you leave a chapstick in the heat all day and then when you go to use you get a huge clump of oily balm all over your mouth? Well, that is how this product is upon your 1st use and then every time after, even if it was in the freezer all day. It smells great but it is so loose and oily I tossed it.

Woe

I loved the way it felt at first however I found the balm tended to dry out my lips. Pass.

Couple flaws...

The product itself gets the job done. What i have issue is with the packaging. Like all other brands that utilize this turn from the bottom design, it tends to turn on its own and thereby dispensing product while inside your pocket. It's just an awful design and would rather see a squeeze tube design with applicator. Don't get me started on the cap. At least have a flip cap. Wouldn't recommend for only those reasons.

meh.

i love the minty feeling on my lips and it keeps my lips hydrated. but where the 'meh' comes into play is it gives me ghost lips. it adds a white film over my lips and then later through the day it collects in the corners of my mouth and i'm constantly having to remove it. i use it in winter, but i limit how much i'm putting on.

Operation mint overload
Sampled

Like many men, I don't really care about lip balm, especially when it's like chewing on a mint plant. I'll stick with the 99-cent tubes.

Great function and fragrance, poor texture

This product performs wonderfully and smells great. This alone would have warranted a 5 star rating, however I found the texture do be somewhat of a nuisance.

The texture is much softer than your typical lip balm stick. Without pushing too hard, or exposure to heat, the lip balm would apply in chunks. Because of the soft texture, it often went on too thick and I had to wipe the remains off with a napkin.

can be glossy

My boyfriend didn't love this product, he felt it did help make chapped lips smooth again but if he put on too much it could look like a "girls" lip gloss. Smelled great.

A Bit Soft
Sampled

This lip balm is a bit soft and over applies. After using a couple of times I started applying to upper lip and removing excess with my finger and applying to lower lip.

Good product.

It goes on smooth and I like how it made me feel like I just had a breath mint. It does say something about fresh breath on the label. I did find it kind of got too soft while in my purse. So I have kept it in my car, but only during the winter months.

Mmmm minty!

This is so great for moisturizing your lips as well as having a great taste. Not super effective on freshening your breath. However, it is a great lip balm for both cold, harsh winters and hot, sunny summers.
