  • My Experience and Opinion My jaw dropped when I saw this product in our local store
  • So, I believe this could only work for normal dry lips, but you may want to opt for other lip balms if you have a serious lip peeling from an allergic reaction
  • I would still recommend this for others as it might still work for them, and if they are not sensitive to scents

      The Product The container is a yellow squeeze tube with a red round screw cap.

      The shade of the lip balm is cloudy white or petroleum jelly like.

      The scent of this lip balm is a mixture of sweetness and glue which makes it smell really odd. The taste, I would not even try due to its scent. But for some odd reason, the scent could diffuse inside my mouth after a few minutes.

      The texture is like a lip gloss but just a little shinier than a typical


      lip balm.

      The price is more than $2.

      My Experience and Opinion My jaw dropped when I saw this product in our local store. I have read and heard some good raves about this so I had to buy it. When I first opened it, I was really put off by its really odd mixture of scent. It smelled initially sweet but suddenly the sweetness was replaced by a glue-like scent that felt like it clogged my nose. I do not know if others had the same experience,

      but that is how I found this lip balm.

      Now, on my lips, it gave me that fresh feeling. I am sure it is because of its menthol ingredient. I must say, the cooling effect felt nice on my lips. The lip balm itself is like those typical lip gloss in a squeeze tube. It is more on the thick side but this is not sticky at all which I see is a plus for those who hate sticky ones. In terms of shine, this could be ...

      just a tad shinier than a typical lip balm gives but not as glossy as lip gloss. In terms of the moisturizing effect, it is moisturizing, but I remember that this one did not work when I had heavy peeling on my lips due to some allergic reaction from a facial wash before. So, I believe this could only work for normal dry lips, but you may want to opt for other lip balms if you have a serious lip peeling from an allergic reaction. I used this
      as a night treatment, and it stayed the whole night on my lips. The moisture was still there when I woke up which is impressive.

      The Bottom Line After months of usage, I just left this lip balm with the rest of my lip gloss that I am keeping and not using anymore. In short, I really do not like it at all. I would still recommend this for others as it might still work for them, and if they are not sensitive to scents.

      Pros Moisturizes, freshens, and stays whole night.

      Cons The scent and taste.

      Would I buy this product again?

      Never.
