I got a small sample of this in a Mystery Sample Box. I'm sort of a lip balm freak, so I was pretty excited. The scent is a little strange--vanilla almond sounds good in theory, but I think this product has a slightly medicinal scent. The texture is much greasier/slicker than I was expecting it to be, and it made my lips look shiny, as though I had gloss on. That's not really what I look for in a balm, and I don't think it's worth the high price, though it certainly isn't an awful lip balm and I will hold on to what's left of the sample for travel.
