This is a full size lip balm for the sample. First off though, mine does not look like the picture shown here. The packaging isn't worse or anything, it just doesn't look like that. The balm is hydrating enough once you get it on... But that is the hard part. The stick is really hard and it makes it tough to get the product onto your lips. I press hard to make it feel like anything at all is coming off. I prefer creamier lip balms that make my lips glide over one another when I rub them together. This definitely is not that kind of lip balm. It's fine, I love that it is natural and it provides a bit of a color, but I much prefer usual lip balms like chapstick or just plain vaseline to this.
