Rated 4.05 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome
Kiehl's has wonderful products so I decided to try this given the great reviews. My lips are usually dry because I tend to lick and smack them and I am forever putting balm or gloss on, plus I live in a dry winter location. Within just a few nights I noticed a significant difference, specifically softer, more hydrated and less peeling of my lips. Unlike some reviewers, I did not find it sticky but quit the opposite, it is very emollient. It is definitely not the same as Aquaphor as one reviewer mentioned - Aquaphor sits on top of the lips and protects while this balm seems to penetrate and provide treatment. I apply it in the evening after dinner and again at bedtime (and sometimes in the morning before my gloss). I gave it 4 stars only because I do not think it is hygienic to put your finger tip in the balm in order to apply it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good, not worth the price though
I've been looking to find the right nightly routine and thought I would work this in. I like it, but I don't think it's worth the price point. It's a little hard to get on your finger and I have to dig into the product to get a decent amount. It doesn't have much of a smell, but what smell it does have is almost chocolatey? Not favorite for my lips, I thought it would smell mangoish. I do like that it doesn't build up on the edges of your mouth overnight or leave a gross white film like some tend to. I wake up with clean, smooth, hydrated lips. However, for the price I would research other products or just stick to traditional chapstick.

Dre from San Diego CA
For the price, this product does an excellent job. It has healed my dry, cracked and chapped lips in 1-2 uses! I would recommend not for the faint of wallet though!
I would buy again
Jen from Donaldsonville Louisiana
Overall good product
Diana from Estero, Florida
I noticed a big difference almost immediately after using this product on my lips. They were more supple and soft after applying the lip mask. In the morning, I had very little chapping left on my lips. I would like to see the product in a wider container to make it easier to get my fingers into the jar to apply to lip balm. I have mid-length nails which makes it more difficult to reach into the jar. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars instead of 4.
it really works!
browngirl from bronx, ny
at first, i thought it would be just good packaging, nope....packaging plus excellent product!! it works. i wear it pretty much every day indoors or outdoors. pairs well with my non matte lipsticks!
Merio from San Francisco
I wasnt sure this would work. But after applying it the first night, I was surprised how soft and smooth my lips were the next morning. Definitely buying again. Works as described!
Adding the Buttermask...
lisasaurus from Boston, MA, USA
Adding the Buttermask for Lips to my evening skincare routine was a game changer! I used to use chapstick a dozen times a day to keeps my lips from chapping. Now my lips are soft and moisturized throughout the day! A little goes a long way!
Waxy & Bad Smell
RyanATX from Austin, TX
I have filler in my lips and have to use chapstick constantly and a lip moisturizer before bed each night. For years I've used the same - Burt's Bee's Intensive Overnight Lip Treatment - and have been very happy. I received an email about this and thought I'd try.
I ended up throwing it away. I used it for a week but did not get equal or better results than my normal treatment.
Smell: At first, it doesn't smell all that bad (it isn't great either). But the main problem comes after wearing for a few minutes and/or over night. The product/smell mixes with your saliva and creates this extremely offputting smell. This is even with freshly brushed teeth.
Texture: For some reason this product was created to be extremely waxy. Greasy would make sense but waxy not at all. It doesn't make your lips feel nourished, moisturized, and/or protected. It just feels like a very thick film that sits on top of your lips rather than penetrating and treating.
I have since gone back to what has worked and continues to work.
Permanently heals dry lips
Patsy53 from Harrisonburg,virginia
I have tried alot of lip products. This is the only product to heal my severe dry lips. I work retail, a very dry environment for skin and lips. Also I am 53 and live near mountains. Also very dry environment too. Thank you Kiehls for putting out such a great product!
Best lip product ever!!
Holly from El Paso, TX
This is the best lip product I have ever used! My daughters and I all get really dry, chapped lips. We started using it at night and in two days our lips were soft, smooth, and no longer chapped! We use it now every night before bed. It's awesome!!
Lizeth from Bakersfield
This makes my lips feel so moisturized & smooth every time I love it I no longer wake up with chapped dry lips
Baby Soft Lips
Jazmine from undisclosed
This lip mask really penetrates into the lips leaving them feeling very moisturized and soft. Each application lasts a decent amount of time. Leaves lips feeling soft and moisturized even after the application has worn off a little. The only issue I have is that the newest one I bought feels like there are tiny crumbs or particles of dust. After the product sets in the crumby sensation dissolves. This is the fourth one I've bought and the first time that I've had this issue.
Not very hydrating for dry lips
Ciars from undisclosed
was disappointed by this. The normal kiehl's lip balm is more hydrating than this
This mask did not meet my expectations.
Samal from Illinois, USA
Unfortunately, I did not see any effect after this mask. First, the texture is very hard, I am not sure maybe I got the product from a wrong batch. I have to try really hard to get the product and apply it. I waited for a week to see any results, but there is none.
I really like this product alot
Cher from Ohio
I put this product on before bed and before applying any lipstick. It keeps my lips very well hydrated and soft.
Only lip mask that seemed to have worked on my dry lips
Pakshi from Austin, TX, USA
I have extremely dry and chapped lips irrespective of season and i keep buying lip balms, conditioners and masks. Until I found this, it nearly immediately healed the dry chapped lips in just 2 nights. One overnight application is all it takes to have soft pink lips :-)
Love this lip mask
iemveres from Los Angeles, CA
This is the only lip mask that really works for me. I?ve tried so many different ones because they are cheaper but nothing beats Kiehl?s products! I?m glad I decided to give this mask a try. This little mask really works wonders overnight. :) it smells amazing too! :)
Razzi from undisclosed
It made my lips so hydrated and soft that I decreased my use of the daily lip balm!
Immediate results just after few uses
I used to apply a daily lip balm consistently through out the day... after using this butter mask, theres almost no use for that daily lip balm.
RockyMtJax from Draper, Utah
I am the quintessential lip balm junkie probably because I have always had dry, chapped lips and I live in an extremely dry climate. This is, without a doubt, the best lip moisturizing product I've ever used - and I've used more products than I could ever count. It's thick, but I love that. It's not slippery or greasy and it stays put, as opposed to melting down your chin. It also brings out the natural color of my lips, making them look very healthy and normal - neither shiny nor matte. And when I take it off (which I don't normally do - I usually just let it wear away over time), my lips feel brand new. I know it's a mask, but I wear it all the time - and it works great if you put lipstick on top of it.
Won't buy again, doesn't do anything
Shorty from Portland, OR
I like a lot of Kiehl's products, but I feel like this one doesn't do anything at all. I've been putting it on before bed for months now and my lips are basically the same as they've always been. Maybe SLIGHTLY more moisturized, but definitely not anything to pay this much for or write home about. Doesn't have an appealing scent or anything like that drawing me to it either.
Did not work
isasd from San Diego
Made my lips worse. Feels good when you first put it on, but wake up with dry, cracked lips.
Allynbelle from VA
I've been using another well known lip sleeping mask for the past couple of years but that one is not carried at Ulta. I was a little hesitant to purchase this one because I love the other. I've been pleasantly surprised! It works great and it's not to slick or to sticky. I wake up with soft, moisturized lips. I'm really happy I purchased this.
making a difference
cld from Roselle, IL
I use a eye cream applicator (always save them) to apply, works great, upper lip lines have soften also. Don't know how it took so long to find this! no taste, smell or mess, probably because of wand and no waste of product,
Lele from Howell, MI
This didn't do anything for my lips. Overpriced too. It didn't make my lips worse but it didn't improve them either.
Makes a Difference
Cremebrulee84 from Philly, PA
I purchased this lip mask last year around Christmas & just ran out a week ago (I have little lips). I used it before bed & in the morning consistently. Throughout the day, I found myself only needing to reapply the lip balm I keep in my purse (different brand) only after eating, so basically after lunch. Now that I've been without this product for a week or so, my lips aren't as smooth & I've been biting the dead skin off of them more frequently. I will be stocking up on these babies!
This lip mask really worked for me!
nancylili from Humble, TX, USA
My lips are usually dried and cracked, I have invested in so many lip balms and products and none worked as well as Kiehl's. It works for me overnight.
