Most Helpful Positive Review Nice
This is a solid lip moisturizer. I don't think it's worth the high price tag. It's sheer and shiny, as well as shimmery [fine shimmer the same color as the rest of the product] on the lips. It has a moderately strong lemon scent, which I find pleasing -but some may find it a little bit reminiscent of house-cleaner products or lemon hand sanitizer. It has a noticeable taste as well- also lemon, which I'm not a big fan of. I find it effective at moisturizing even quite chapped lips- I find it works better than normal chapstick.
However, I've also tried the lanolips banana balm lip treatment, and personally prefer that for moisturizing. If you want something less sticky, smoother, less pigmented, and lemony- or more for going out while wearing, I'd go with this one. If you want maximum moisturizing and don't care as much about aesthetics/ are going to use it as a sleeping treatment, I'd pick the banana balm.
Overall a solid product that I'm not going to return, but overpriced. I'd recommend the lanolips banana balm over this.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointing
This was a little bit of a splurge for a basic lip gloss but I'm obsessed with anything lemonade. I wasn't impressed with the moisturizing factor. Didn't do much so I wouldn't go as far as calling this a "lip treatment". It smells wonderful, not overwhelming but noticeable. I wish it tasted as sweet as it smelled. So, here's where the issue comes into play. If this is exposed to ANY type of temperature rise, it becomes a mess. It becomes straight liquid (no viscosity) and the shimmer/formula separates in the tube. Good luck getting it on without it spilling on your hands and/or face. It has a fairly large opening on the applicator which doesn't help the situation. I can consciously be very careful squeezing and it still spills everywhere. If you want to give this gloss a shot, be sure to leave it at home in the air conditioning. Doesn't suit my lifestyle.

this is literally the only lip product that actually moisturizes my dry lips. I've tried the laneige lip mask but it totally didn't live up to the hype. But lanolips is a brand that Sopdoeslife uses, and i usually trust her choices/recs, so I tried it and im blown away! it lasts all night on my lips and smells AMAZING.
Meg from Detroit, MI
This stuff is great: It smells fresh and lemon-y, but not in an overpowering way. Because it's so thick, it was tricky to push out of the tube at first, but it's been a savior for my chapped lips, especially going into the warmer months. The only drawback is the price (for context, this is slightly smaller than Glossier's Balm Dotcom, which has a similar texture), but I was able to use a coupon which made it worth the splurge.
I have dry, peeling lips and this works !
Beauty Buyer from Chico
I took a risk trying this product online without ever testing any of their products In the past and I love this product! I have very dry, always peeling lips and I use lip scrubs regularly but never seem to make the skin even and smooth. However, this product evened out my lips immediately! Theres no tingle. No peeling. I think it's the citrus maybe that helps it exfoliate so well. I use this product all the time now. I am looking for more to buy from them now.
T from M
I've been looking for a true lemon balm or treatment. This smells like lemon, not like lemon frosting. Thank god! Thicker balm to be sure. I don't notice the glitter. Pricey for a balm but I got it with money off so I am pleased
Platinum Blonde Shoe Diva from Orlando, Fl
This treatment smells good enough to eat
Very hydrating with the consistency of a lip oil once applied
Heather from Riverbank
First off the smell is amazing. It's not overpowering, but the perfect hint of lemon. Goes on so smooth, isn't tacky and last for hours.
I like it
S. Kerriann from Maryland
I like it. It goes on smoothly and it smells great but its super thick and hard to squeeze out of the tube. I just havent really seen any difference with my chapped lips. In fact i think its gotten worse and i dont blame the product at all. I thought it would help a bit though.
Best lip treatment
Cece from Virginia
I've tried everything under the sun (Aquaphor, Laneige, Kiehls, etc.) for my chronically dry, peeling lips and this is the ONLY product that works for me. I normally put this on in the morning and at night as a more intensive lip treatment and it works miracles. Instead of just covering up my dry lips, it actually heals them. A bit pricey, so I normally stock up when they're on sale.
Life changing!! 💕💕
Laurmac21 from York Pa.
This is the best lip balm you will ever use! I have dealt with contact dermatitis on my lips since last Summer. Nothing has helped until I found this. My lips are completely back to normal now and feel so good. I use it at night before bed too and still have some on in the morning. Best lip balm ever made!
Smells so good!!
Alkanora from Cali
This has become my go to purse lip balm, which is saying a lot! I always love citrusy scents so that's a bonus, and this nicely coats the lips and keeps them hydrated. I like that it's not just a thin balm that disappears immediately!
I will continue to buy this lip balm.
LisaCh from West Bloomfield
I use it 2 times a day and has changed the appearance of my lips to soft and smooth in 1 week.
Shorty from Portland OR
Moisturizing with just a touch of shine. Nice light lemon scent. I will probably buy again, even at this price! It is thick and slightly hard to squeeze out, but that doesn't bother me much.
Y'ALL this is the best lip product!
GatorGD from Texas
I stumbled on this product on one of those BuzzFeed articles about the best things to buy. This has 100% held up. I have tried allllll sorts of lip products to keep my lips moisturized. Bee wax and other wax products don't work for me b/c I have no natural moisture to seal in with the wax. This product is AMAZING. It makes my lips moist on their own! I don't have to keep reapplying it every few minutes or even hours. I apply it before bed, and the strawberry one at work where I'm in a drying and cold building (a hospital), and under a mask.
Jenn from Michigan
My lips have been a MESS this winter, cracking, peeling & painful. I have tried everything & nothing has worked. This product literally healed/soothes them overnight! This is my new favorite, can't live without, holy grail lip product! Do yourself a favor & buy this!
Severely dry lips
Olivia from Oklahoma
This stuff is magical. I suffer from severely dry, cracked lips. Sometimes they bleed. I apply this balm every few hours and it keeps my lips moisturized in between applications! I don't feel like I have to constantly reapply, which is really great. 5 stars from me!
Best Lip Balm Ever
SMM from Birmingham
I love this lip balm. I can put it on before bed, and my lips are still moist when I wake up. My lips peel if I forget to use it, but they immediately feel great. The lemon scent is really nice, too.
better than balm dotcom
Lilli from USA
I've been a longtime balm dotcom fan for its staying power and how smooth it makes my horribly dry, cracked to the point of bleeding, lips. This product smells delightfully like lemonade, has a hint of shimmer, and stays for hours. I also love that this has an applicator tip unlike balm dotcom. I've already purchased a backup to keep in my purse.
I WILL buy this over and over!!! 🤩
Elizabeth D from Kingsport TN
I use it before I use my lipsticks. I'll let it soak in and then while it off and apply my favorite Matt lippy. I used this lip treatment all the time I have it on right now as I write this review. It saved my lips literally ☺️ I have children and my lips use to peel daily. I've had this lip treatment for a year and it saved my lips!!
Won't Buy Again
KM from RI
I'm VERY particular about my lip products... This one feels nice and moisturizing when its applied, but I've noticed my lips actually feel more dry when the product come off when I'm eating or drinking. Not really happy since I spent over $15 on this... :/
Excellent Product for chapped lips!
Jean from San Jose, CA
This is the BEST product for chapped lips and for keeping lips moisturized! Nothing campares!
Love, Love, LOVE!!!
Clarkie5 from Charlotte, NC
Throw away all other lip balms for dry/chapped lips - this one is ALL YOU NEED!! Hands down, best! I wear it at night, right before bed and my lips are so soft in the morning. I will sometimes take a damp wash cloth and scrub my lips in the morning to take off the dead skin and then reapply this or Lano's strawberry (also great, but doesn't exfoliate this this one). I stocked up on both during the 20% off sale.
Wonderful lip treatment
Ber from San Diego
Wonderful product. Effectively hydrates the lip with a few applications. Found that I didn't need to use chapstick on the days I use lanolin lip treatment. A little goes a long way. Will not only buy this product again, but will be trying other products in this line.
Lip Gloss for Super Heroes
Wonder Woman from Cincinnati
I use this daily. I am a cyclist and ride 10 to 20 miles daily. This keeps my lips moisturized during my ride regardless of weather conditions. It is costly for a lip treatment but well worth the price.
Everything a lip gloss should be
Andy from Boston, MA
Not only does this product smell exactly like a fresh cup of lemonade, it also hydrates and is so smooth on my lips I can't stop applying it. It has a thick consistency with some shimmer so it acts like a chapstick but feels like a lip gloss.
