C.O. Bigelow My Favorite Night Balm

You think Tommy Edison could have invented the lightbulb with chapped lips? Well, maybe, but one thing’s for sure: Dry lips are uncomfortable and distracting. Luckily, the geniuses at longtime apothecary C.O. Bigelow, where Edison was a patron, have developed this little lip balm that does big work. Made with shea butter, it moisturizes and heals your lips while you sleep, leaving you to focus on your own bright ideas.

Beware Sensitive Skin!

I have very sensitive skin and this balm broke me out all around my mouth and left my lips red. After I stopped using this product, my lips went back to normal and my skin got better. I thought it was reacting with another product, but every time I tried it, my skin reacted the same way. I purchased at Bath & Body works (CO Bigelow's sister company under Limited Brands), and ended up throwing it out. Make sure to try it before you buy it!

Pure Stickiness

This is straight up the stickiest lip product I have ever tried. I have big lips & I have tried SO many different products & this is by far bottom of my list. There was no way I was able to use this during the day so I tried it at night. There wasnt a great enough difference though so it wasnt worth it. There are many other (cheaper) products out there.

Smells great though!

Disappointed

I thought this C.O. Bigelow lip product would be more intensive healing than the others, but I was disappointed because I found it wasn't any more moisturizing than the other products in the line (not to mention some competitor brands that I prefer overall). Also, the scent and taste were not as nice as some of the other products. Plus, the tube is smaller but the same price! I would not recommend this product. If you want C.O. Bigelow lip care, try one of the other balms or glosses offered.

This night balm stays on pretty much all night, but I don't really notice a big difference in how my lips feel in the morning.

night balm
Purchased

This balm is OK. I put it on my lips every night and though most of the time it leaves them soft, other times they are still chapped. I do use it sometimes during the day also. Vaseline works the same as this product. I would not purchases it again. Definitely Not worth the money.

good for moisture.
Purchased

This is a great product to repair chapped lips while you sleep. Definitely too thick for the daytime. The problem for me is the vanilla scent/flavor, not a fan. If you like vanilla, you will probably love this balm.

Do not use if you're sensitive

Absolutely DO NOT USE if you have sensitive skin!!! It caused my lips to swell painfully when I woke up!! It's something about the over night one. The regular ones are fantastic and I love them, but for whatever reason, I can't use this specific kind.

It works...ish.
Purchased

I'm not really that impressed with it being an "overnight" balm. Its not much better than any other balm I use. If I had known that it wasn't going to be much different I would have bought something else.

I don't know... First of all, I would say this product falls somewhere in between a balm and a gloss. Its not quite giving a moisture barrier or being very moisturizing either. I will agree somewhat with the sticky part, but I think that can be controlled somewhat by the amount you put on. A little goes a long way. I just don't see it doing much for me. If you need something on your lips at night (especially with winter coming) I guess this is as good as anything. I just wasn't wowed.

Doesn't work as intended
Purchased

My lips have been crazy dry for months now and I've been searching for something that will save them. I thought this product sounded perfect. It smells really good and feels great on the lips, but does not moisturize enough. I've been using it for a month now and my lips are still dry during the day. High hopes for this to work, but was let down.
