Made my lips smooth but stunk

Great balm - but I hated the smell. I didn't even want to wear it when I might be giving a kiss :)

Tootsie rolls...

The product itself moisturizes my lips better than the Burt's Bees I've been using, however, I bought the flight and I feel like the entire set has been tainted by the scent of the cocoa lip balm. I'm currently using the citrus and all I smell/taste are tootsie rolls. It's very weird! I tried the cinnamon and all I get is a spicy tootsie roll...

Smells exactly how it should!

this product smells exactly as it says it should. It's just ok. I have lips that can get dry and this product is just ok. I wouldn't spend so much for this product. I love the smell, but CVS has many brands for cheaper that offer a longer lasting sheen.

Sprout flight
Sampled

I appreciated getting a full sized sample of this product as oftentimes it takes several uses to see the results of a lip product. The flight is a pretty awesome idea, though I wished that they had more flavors so that you can pick and choose to customize your flight. Another minor critique is the design of the tube. I much more prefer having a slanted tip to apply the balm, so I tend to purchase lip balms with those designs for quick and easy application.

not a fan of cocoa
Sampled

I like that this product is natural but I can't get past the smell. I don't like cocoa at all. I think if it had a different scent I would enjoy it. I like how it feels on my lips but the smell turns me away.

Nice texture, overwhelming flavor
Sampled

I agree with many of the reviews - the flavor/scent of the cocoa lipbalm was just too overwhelming. I was very happy with the texture and natural ingredients but it smells like fake chocolate.

Moisturizing...but nasty scent

I got the cocoa scent in my October BB. I was really excited to try it since I have an issue with chapped lips and have a hard time finding chapstick that actually works!

It does a great job bringing back moisture to my lips and I bet it would help heal them if I used it more often. But I don't use it that often because of the scent. I'm sure the citrus and peppermint smell nice, but the cocoa is over powering. It reminds me of a cheap "chocolate flavored" lip gloss I got at the roller-rink as a kid.

I hope they work on their scents because the product it a good one. If they end up making newer scents, I would consider buying.

Too Sweet
Sampled

The lip balm felt great on the lips and didn't feel like I needed to reapply often. How ever I am not at all a fan of sweet lip balms. I prefer mints.

strong smell
Sampled

I love how moisturizing the product is, but the soybean smell is very overpowering. My husband won't kiss me until I've rubbed it in thoroughly.

Cocoa...well
Sampled

Well, I was sampled for the Cocoa one. It doesn't smell that good to me, and it seems a little bit of oily to me. But honestly, it does good job in moisturizing your lips, but last only a short time..
