All time favorite lip balm.

I received my first pot of Baume de Rose in a sample box. Initially, I set it aside because it's just a bit inconvenient to apply. Then one night my lips were feeling particularly dry, cracked, and peeling, and this little pot just happened to catch my eye.
It felt SO good on my lips. Rich and creamy and very moisturizing. Within a week my lips were healed. In fact, they haven't felt this smooth in longer than I want to discuss - and my lip products have never looked better.
This is now my "go-to" lip balm. I even ordered another pot directly from the By Terry website, where I discovered the balm is also available as a lip crayon and a "lip gloss".

Absolutely amazing

I cannot get enough of this lip balm! I have problems with dry lips, especially in the winter. It's not excessive, but enough that I notice it, especially when I'm wearing lipstick - throughout the day, my lips will start to feel "peely." This balm completely combats it! I put it on in the morning under my lipstick (regular, matte, or otherwise), and it keeps my lipstick so fresh throughout the day! I also wear it at night before bed, and my lips feel amazing in the morning. I have two sample sizes right now, but wouldn't hesitate to spend the money on a full-sized version!

Smells and feels amazing

I got this as a sample in a birchbox discovery kit and I think I am hooked already. This feels amazing and looks great on my lips. Not greasy or messy and its long lasting. I am surprised how much I like the smell, its not overpowering at all. I am a little sad to see how much the full size costs but maybe with some points and a sale...

My must have lux item

I received a sample of this, and I had to buy it. I get very chapped, bloody lips most of the year, with little reprieve no matter how much water I drink, or what I use as a balm. I put on chaptstick frequently, avoid lipstick, at night I would use a Vaseline/petroleum based balm, and that helped, but I could not use any lipstick or cover with color, as the pigment just made my lips look awful. I found some relief with the Elizabeth arden 8 hr Vaseline like product, but still not great. I immediately noticed an improvement after trying this from by terry. And yes, I did buy the full size, though from dermstore, as they often have a 20% off promo that will work. I think after tax, it was about 42 dollars. It is a good sized product. Every morning and night I put a thick coating on. It doesn't slip, no flavor, the rose scent is light. It's been about 4 months, and the improvement is remarkable. I haven't woken with bloody lips in months! Survived a Wisconsin winter! There is still a ton of product left. The downside, you need either your finger or a cosmetic spatula to put the product on, so you cannot share, as the risk of bacteria is high. It is likely advisable to replace as often as your eyeshadow or gel foundation, but the price, I will likely use it much longer. It is expensive, but I love it. If regular chapstick and exfoliating keep your lips smooth and comfortable, this will be a waste of money for you. I think you notice your lips looking a little plumper and the lines will certainly lessen, but I don't think that is enough to justify the splurge. If, like me, you either live in a dry area, or suffer from consistent dry, cracking lips, this is definitely worth it. The first time I exfoliate my lips after using this for about a month, the dead skin just peels off in one long piece, with healthy, non irritated skin underneath. Kind of gross, but with a primer, I can now wear even red lipstick without it catching dry areas

Long-lasting, not miraculous

I'm a bit of a lip balm buff, so I was really excited about trying this. The price is crazy steep, so I waited to purchase it until I could get it for $20 + oodles of Birchbox points. I can't say I'd purchase it again. While it lasts for a really long time and feels quite good while it's on, it didn't do any of the miraculous lip healing it claimed in the description. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and my lips still feel the same level of chapped when it has worn off. I use a nice thick coating of it every night, and I reapply it every morning. When I have it nearby I apply it during the day as well. Definitely not worth $60 in my opinion.

Terry Baume de Rose

I love this product. The best lip treatment ever.
Smells and feels really nice. The fact that it can be used on your cuticles is a bonus. You can rub the excess around your cuticles and off you go.

I'm mixed on this one

Well...I'd heard the amazing reviews on this lip baum and desperately wanted to try it out. Upon opening the cap, the first thing I noticed was the strong scent of artificial roses. I'm a migraineur so it was not a smell that agrees with me. The product is creamy and easy to apply. It's definitely hydrating but it seems about as good as a quality chapstick that I could purchase at Whole Foods for $5.00. I do not feel as though it is worth spending $59.00 for this product. It is hydrating however, there is no wow factor on this. I prefer using Jason's vitamin D oil right on my lips, it's just as good for $10.00.

So... I don't dislike it per say, but I don't love it either. For $59.00 I have to love it to buy it again.

I was skeptical of this product at first because it was a total impulse buy. And after wondering if I just wasted sixty dollars I finally tried it and I can't get enough!! Before this I was a carmex and burts bee's kinda girl, but now all I ever want to use is my baume de rose! The only flaw this product has is the price 60 dollars! Outrageous! I'm a high school student on a tight budget (saving for a car) and the only reason I bought it in the first place was because I got a discount that made it only 40 and thought might as well, but I think the product will last me awhile so for this reason I will probably purchase again.

Can't. Live. Without. This

So, know you have to practically sell a kidney to afford this, but it is amaze-balls. I rarely buy lip balm twice (I'm too much of a junkie to not want to try something new every time) but I'm on my second jar. There will be a third and fourth, no doubt. I use it mostly at night - the scent is very relaxing and it gives my lips a nice coat to get through the night. But I did decant a portion into a smaller, empty container and I've been carrying it in my purse for lip emergencies. This is one of those luxuries you owe yourself.

Most balms, lipsticks and lip moisturizers feel soothing when you put them on, but their effectiveness quickly dissipates. Not so with BY TERRY Baume de Rose! My lips feel moisturized for hours after application! No other product can compare.

Why only 4 Stars?

First - The balm’s overpowering scent is exactly like those rose shaped soaps my grandmothers had in their bathrooms - you know those small shaped soaps and the fancy towels you’d better not be caught using because they’re FOR. GUESTS. - Yep, like those.

Second - The price. $60 for lip balm? What? Is it only FOR GUESTS?
