Can't get past the smell
Sampled

While the texture of this lip balm is wonderful, I cannot get past the pet-store smell. I received the cocoa flavor and only hope that the other three included in the package smell and taste better than this one.

The smell....
Sampled

I wish I had received a different scent for this product. I received the cocoa lip balm and it just doesn't smell good. It smells sort of like cocoa powder, not a sweet chocolate smell or a mild cocoa butter smell, which is not something I want to smell from my lips. While wearing the lip balm, the smell is so strong I have to take it off. It's unfortunate because the smell prevented me from really seeing if the lip balm kept my lips moisturized. I will not be continuing to use this.

Pay attention to the scents!!!
Purchased

Other reviewers have mentioned that the more powerful scents overpower the softer scents in the tin. I didn't pay attention to this problem and unfortunately, now I know they were right. The cocoa scent has been completely absorbed into the citrus scent, which is a bit of a gross combination (and the fake scent of cocoa is completely unappealing to me). I would honestly only recommend this to someone interested in a chocolate scented lip balm because it is so strong. The others, that I thought I would enjoy, aren't very strong and have been totally overpowered by the cocoa. The tin/balms are cute, and the lip balm works, but if you're not one for very strong, specific scents, I wouldn't recommend it.

Too spicy for my lips

Lovely balm but the cinnamon is very spicy!
It says it's for sensitive skin but mine is sensitive and this burned.

It's okay

This lip balm is pretty moisturizing. I got the cinnamon scented one in my box. The scent was just TOO overpowering, it made me feel nauseous. Smelt like really strong vitamins to me for some reason. Wish they could just tone down the scent and it would be great. I think I am better suited for the peppermint one maybe.

Tried so hard to love!

I really wanted to love this! I love that its all natural and it feels great on my lips, but I can't get over the flavor or smell. Every time I put this on I ended up wiping it off after a couple of minutes. Maybe the others are different but I couldn't handle all the cinnamon!

Didnt use

I didnt even open the wrapper on this one. I hate cinnamon and ended up giving it away.

I may have liked a different flavor but was a little disappointed to get a simple lip balm in my box.

Not my cup of tea.

I usually love anything lip oriented but for some reason this went on really thick and the taste/smell was not my favorite. I won't be using the rest of this.

cinnamon flavor- yuck
Sampled

Cinnamon is one of my favorite food spices, so I thought this would be right up my alley. The scent is just off though. The balm itself is moisturizing, but I can't get over the scent.

I like the texture of this product, but since I'd previously received the same sample, it was kind of a bummer to see it in this month's box. That being said, it's a great product, but I definitely don't care for the citrus fragrance the one i received.
