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.
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!
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.2
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.3
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.3
The balm is nice. The minty smell is refreshing and it isn't too heavy, but I'm not sure it does much more than any other high quality balm. My lips do feel extra soft my morning but I'm not sure if this same feeling couldn't come from a less expensive product.3
I have been using this consistently at night when I go to sleep. I don't know if I feel like it has made a huge difference in my lips, but it has also been warm outside which makes my lips less chapped too. It lasts quite a long time.3
I was looking for a night time lip treatment/balm and I thought this would do the trick! My lips tend to get dry over night and I wanted to try something other than regular Chapstick. I found that it moisturizes well while it's on but goes on and feels more like a lip gloss. Didn't nourish my lips at all over night and felt like it was drying once the product was off. If you're looking for a moisturizing lip gloss this is it!3
This product did not blow me away - based on previous reviews I thought it would be much more moisturizing than it is. It doesn't seem to do that much better of a job than some other products I use and to top it off it is very sticky. Just a note, I do have skin that is on the dryer side. Overall, I was not that impressed and would not purchase again - but it isn't terrible.3
I tried this in full size from a local beauty store. Bigelow usually makes products with great fragrances, which is a big deal for me. After all, who wants an icky smelling beauty product? Anyway...the balm glides on smoothly and felt nice, but I experienced no transformation in the texture of the skin in my lips. It was just..."eh" for me.3
Overall, I really like this balm. Sweet but not overpowering scent, glides on as light or as thick as you want it to, and leaves your lips soft and rejuvenated in the morning. The one thing I did notice is that, as opposed to petroleum jelly, it STAYS ON. You would think that this is great, and it was at first, but when I went to wash my face in the morning I could not get it off. I tried licking, wiping, using makeup remover.. nothing! It eventually wore off, but I could feel it on my lips for hours and it was just too sticky to enjoy during the day. I lost the little tube within a week, and I'm honestly not sure if I want to buy it again.4
