Most Helpful Positive Review delightful
I am one of those people who keeps lip care with me at all times. I have one in the car, a couple in my purse, my gym bag, night stand, coffee table, kitchen counter--the list goes on. So many products just aren't as great as they claim to be. This one is wonderful. My lips are instantly smoothed and soothed, it layers very well under lipstick if needed, and the dreamy, light banana scent and flavor is so pleasant. Love it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nope - full of regret
I purchased this because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews. I hate it. It moisturizes fairly well but I could only use it at night. First off: it doesn't go on totally clear but gives a slight white cast to your lips, even when put on thinly, so it cannot be worn alone unless you enjoy looking like a sickly ghost. That being said, if you try to put anything over it, even hours later, it will clump up any type of lipstick, balm or gloss. Like really clump up. Like embarrassing lip scum clump up. I tried using it in my routine regularly by putting it on as I started my makeup routine and scrubbing it off with a washcloth when I was finished, which worked fine except for the one out of every three days I would forget to do that and end up with nasty lips bothering me at work all day long. Absolutely infuriating. I thought that this would be better than the Bite lip mask because those are just a touch sticky and a reviewer said this is not sticky. It is super sticky. I also thought it would be cheaper but you end up using quite a bit more than you need to with Bite lip masks so it ends up being a waste. Super disappointed with this purchase.
Reviewed by 54 customers I would not buy this product again
GramGramT from Jackson, MS
Out of 5000 lip balms in Ulta I picked up the one tube which turned my lips red and sparkly when applied. Well, no where on the packaging does the product state it will turn your lips bright red, make them sparkly with no chance of wiping it off. You're sparkly all flippin day - I'm 50, not 12 = )
Good moisturizer for lips
Amy from Russellville KY
I personally do not like lip glosses I normally use balms but I wanted to try this one it has a good smell and taste. It also is very glossy. It is moisturizing. I just don't like gloss. Will get a balm the next go around!
I will buy again
Dizzy from FL
Very thick on your lips.
Would buy again
Summer from Indy
Has a nice banana smell/flavor. Goes on really smooth and feels great. Makes my lips look really nice... I love the subtle shimmer that it has. My lips definitely feel softer after use. The only issue is that you have to reapply ever hour or two, but it's worth it. It's a bit pricey but I've never had a balm that looks and feels this good on.
J from California
Love everything about this gloss especially the banana flavor. But it turns white after being on my lips for over an hour and it's not very flattering. I've tried everything on the Lano product line and this is their only product that turns my lips white.
Keeps your lips moist
NJ Shopper from Marlton, NJ
This kept my lips moist longer than any product I've used. I'm always using chapstick or something, multiple times and with this balm, I was able to go for hours. It has a nice sheen and I wore it over lip stain. I love it, it is a bit sticky which I usually dislike but becasue it lasted so long it was worth it.
So smooth and shiny and perfect
Rl from Pennsylvania
I love anything banana flavored. So this is perfect. It also adds the most perfect shine on my lips. Doesn't leave them super hydrated. But honestly one of the best balms I've used. Definitely buying it again!
Will be buying this brand again.
Lisa C from West Bloomfield
I use it mostly at night to moisturize my lips. It is very creamy.
XOXO from Houston,Texas
Love this product it tastes like a banana smoothie and is not sticky at all gives your lips a glossy shine without the sticky mess most shiny lip balms make. Lasts for a long time and makes your lips very smooth.
The best lip balm
brandylee from pa
This lip balm makes my lips so soft. Buy on sale!!
Milky White/Yellow/Green Balm
Kristinm228 from Wind Lake, WI
This balm smells amazing, but is pigmented with this milky whitish yellow green color that seriously looks disgusting. It gets stringy within one minute and makes you look crazy- even if you just put on a tiny bit. When a 10 year old girl tells you that your lips look like "a dead persons," it is time to find another balm. I did keep it to use at bed time because it is among the most moisturizing lip balm I have ever used.
Laura J from New Jersey
It's more of a waxy lip gloss than a lip balm.
Llisa66 from Syracuse
Worst ever! Sparkle Yellow-white that is impossible to remove! I ended up camouflage it with lipstick.
Great feel, heinous taste
Tabs from San Rafael, CA
Wonderful coverage, nice sheen, and even initially, this product has a nice mild flavor, but within 90 seconds it suddenly tastes like you are making out with the sheep the lanolin came from!
Smells like bananas
Kikidc from Arlington, VA
Love this stuff! Not sticky at all. Provides great moisture and shine. Will continue to buy more!
Don't blink, just buy
Marta from chicago, il
I throw this on at least once a day. I'm almost done with this tube and I can honestly say that I don't remember the last time I finished a "chapstick".
one of my go tos
Tia from Florida
I'm surprised this doesn't have any comments yet. I've had it for quite a while and it's one of the balms that I keep near at hand frequently. I have way too many balms...way too many...so the ones that I do fall in love with really stick out since they've somehow gotten my attention amid a bag of others. I love all of this brands balms I've gotten so far.
Great Lip Balm
La B from Springfield, MO
I love this lip balm. Lanolin seems to be extremely soothing for me, and I don't worry about it getting on my babies when I'm kissing their cheeks! The smell is light and reminds me of banana runts. There is no flavor.
NerdyBeauty27 from New Mexico
This balm is fantastic! I generally prefer lanolin as a moisturizer rather than petroleum. The ingredients are really great. I feel a difference as soon as I apply it and the moisture stays for a very long time. The banana fragrance is the absolute best banana scent ever. There is a very slight sheen/sparkle that is extremely flattering. I wear it alone and over other products like lip liner or a dry lipstick. I recommend this balm to anyone interested!
Exactly what I wanted in a lipbalm
Eliy from Wisconsin
Great chapstick with a glossy sheen. Smells like a sweet bananai think the smell isn't too strong but a nice hint. Would highly recommend if u need a stylish chapstick!
Anicole92 from Davenport, IA
I am kind of a lip balm fanatic. That being said, I am obsessed with this lip balm! I have tried pretty much every lip balm you can think of. And this is in my top 5. For those of you saying that it leave a whiteish film on your lips, you need to apply it, then massage it in with your finger tips. It distributes the product more evenly on your lips that way and it doesn't look white on your lips. It moisturizes your lips instantly. I love the banana smell. It's such a different feel than what I'm used to in lip balms. In a good way. It's creamy, luscious, and it's not oily, cakey, or clumpy. If this product is clumpy on your lips, you need to exfoliate them. Love it!
Teri from Chicago
I picked this up because it is cruelty free and vegan ~ i have the worst longest lasting case of chapped lips and I've been using everything known to me to remedy them. This balm may be the best I've ever used I love it
SarahG from Brook Park , Ohio
I've used daily since I got it! Love for work. It tastes great but doesn't linger (taste wise). I found I reapply far less than other balms I've used. I don't find it to be too white like some other comments say. The pink sparkle makes my lips look plump and is very subtle.
MrsA from NC
This is now my go to! I don't mind the extra $$ for it. Has a slight sparkle that is so perfect (and I'm not a glitter-on-my-lips person) , smells amazing, gives amazing moisture (that's the lanolin), not sticky!!!!! This doubles as a gorgeous sheen gloss packed with moisturizer. I'm hooked.
Peeling lips no more!
Lisa C. from Lawrenceville, GA
This product is the most moisturizing lip conditioner I have ever used. My peeling lips have been replaced with smooth, healthy lips. I tried the lemonade version of Lanolips, but prefer the banana because it is thicker and lasts longer.
