Too expensive; buy the real stuff instead

I've been using Lansinoh on my lips for 12 years -- it's the same product (but marketed to breastfeeding mothers for their nipples). You get 1.4 ounces for about $6-$9 (depending on the store --grocery, Target, WalMart, etc.), instead of this puny 1/2 ounce size for $14. If you want a small size for your purse, just squeeze some into an empty lipgloss pot, put it in the microwave until it melts into liquid; put it in the fridge until it hardens again and -- voila! -- you have the perfect lipbalm/gloss. It's the best thing out there for your lips, hands down. I swear by it and would never use anything else.

Love this product!
Sampled

As a nursing mommy, I was so excited to see this product in my BB! The multi-use balm feels great on, but it can be a little sticky when first applying. If you warm it up on your fingers first, it is easier to apply! 5 Stars!

Works well
Sampled

I really thought that this product worked well. It hydrated for a long time. I did not like how thick it was or how it smelt but it does work just how it advertises.

This balm is very nurishing! If you don't mind the thickness of this, you will love it. Sometimes I put it on before bed and its still there in the morning and underneath the balm my lips are plump and soft!

Everything BUT the Lips
Sampled

Not really a fan of using this on my lips. The only way I can describe this is goopy. If it's warm it glides nicely on your lips (if it's cold it's really goopy and uncomfortably thick) but the taste is awful. I got the small size in my box and I tried and tried to use it on my lips...nope. Where it really shines is, well, pretty much EVERYWHERE else. I really liked using this as an overnight moisturizer (nails, knees, elbows, etc) because in the morning everything was soft and moisturized. The crazy thing is that in the morning there is still a layer of it wherever you applied it. (But it's still goopy and uncomforable so I would promptly showering it off.) Personally I would not use it for "unruly eyebrows" or "adding shine to cheeks" as it is very heavy and thick and you can constantly feel it. Probably will buy again for winter and cracking hands.

This product does not have a pleasant taste. I also do not like its greasy consistency . Thankfully the product wears off quick. 2 stars at most.

Great for the Winter !
Sampled

I used this whole sample over the winter when my lips were really dry and cracked. It deeply moisturized my lips and stayed that way for hours. I wouldn't buy this again just because I'm always stocked with lip products but if I ever saw it in the store and was having super dry lip problems I definitely would.
