This lip balm works well, leaves lips very soft but the smell and taste are awful.

no spf

i know this is organic, but no spf = no purchase! the taste was also really off, almost like it went bad - i received the citrus flavor. the texture was nice, and organic is always great, but the flavor and no spf were the tipping points for me.

Not for me
Sampled

After trying this product, I did not love it. I wanted the cinnamon flavor to be just a little sweeter than it was, and the lip balm felt very greasy to me. I probably would not buy this product.

Meh

The lip balm felt gross on my lips and tasted blah. I actually didn't like it so much I threw it out since no one I knew wanted to take it off my hands. I don't recommend this.

No thank you

I didn't really like this. The cocoa flavor smelled "burnt" to me and I don't think it kept my lips any more moisturized than the regular drug store brands.

Not a favorite

Although I love the idea of all natural lip balms, I really tried to give this a shot. Maybe, I already love the products I use. This just did not cut it for me. Other reviewers stated they loved the smell, but for me the smell of this product was my first major turn off. I have the cocoa one and the smell just reminded me of plain of wax with a hint of nasty (maybe I'm just not a fan of the cocoa they used). For moister, it just went on as a coat rather than really sinking into my lips and hydrating. It wasn't tacky or sticky, which I did appreciate. But this product was just not for me.

Just didn't really like the Cocoa smell

I got the Cocoa Sprout Lip Balm one month and was super excited to try it out (I've yet to find my go-to lip balm). I didn't even really get a chance to see how well it worked because the smell just bothered me too much. It smells like an awkward coconut to me, so I'm going to continue my search elsewhere.

Made my lips numb

This product made my tongue and lips numb. I suppose I could be allergic to something in it, which would make this the first product I've ever had an allergic reaction to. I didn't enjoy that numbness, though I suppose you could use it as a topical anesthetic in a cinch. just kidding, you totally couldn't.

Became melty (without actually being melted!)

This lip balm was fine for a month or so, and then started to get really soft. I would try to put it on and end up with a huge glop on my lip. It was never exposed to any significant heat... it was very strange. Not a fan. The cocoa scent was odd, too.

Cocoa

I got the coco one and I hated the smell. Too food like. It felt great though, so I know I would love the peppermint one. Just avoid the cocoa one if you don't want to smell like cake.
