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.

HATE HATE HATE that it has shimmer! Why on Earth would you put shimmer in a lip TREATMENT? I wake up with a sparkly pillowcase and face in the morning. It would be 5 stars if it was shimmer-less! Great formula, smells great, moisturizing....but that useless sparkle destroys it.
The BEST lip treatment
Katelynn from MA
I live in New England and every winter, my skin suffers. Painful, dry burning lips. Not flaky or cracked, just insanely dry and in deep desperation of intense moisture and a product that will PROTECT from the elements. This stuff is amazing. It's the only thing that's worked for for me! Instant relief. I have the tinted lip balm tubes too and those work great as well, but if you're looking for some serious moisture this is the one for you. The formula is amazing and it lasts so you aren't applying over and over again within an hour.
Wonderful lip saver
Drea from San Diego CA
If you haven't tried Lano products, you're missing out! I have tried almost every lip product that Ulta sells, and Lano reigns supreme. This product smells just like fresh lemonade!!! It moisturizes your lips for hours and even heals them! These products are also multi use, so you can emulsify a pea sized drop and add it to your facial moisturizer to super charge it, or use for dry cuticles, rough patches, fly away hair tamer etc. you can't go wrong! I'd also like to mention, although this product is not vegan, it is still cruelty free because they do not hurt the Lambs to extract lanolin. It comes from their haircuts! What's not to love???

I have chronically chapped lips. When I was younger I bit on them a lot so they pout more than they're supposed to. There's a really dry patch in the area where they're supposed to end so I have to keep them moisturized constantly ! I was surprised this worked so well. It smells like lemon candy too which is a plus along with the pretty packaging ♥️
Actually works and can be worn during the day
NoFunClub from Grand Rapids, Mi
I absolutely love this. I used to use Bite's agave lip mask but this is so much better. It's thick but it's sooo much more wearable than Bite's. I can put it on during the day and not be uncomfortable. I'm so glad I found this. Though I do wish there was a flavor more similar to Bite's.
I'm completely hooked on this!
seacoastdweller from southern NH
How can anyone say anything less than favorable? This lip treatment is everything it claims to be; richly moisturizing, smooth with a wonderful fresh lemon smell, I love it! I use it as recommended; at at bedtime. Ever since I tried this lip treatment, I gave up all my other expensive balms/treatments I used to get. This is not as inexpensive as it could be if it were made in the USA (Australia), but when it goes on sale, I stock up!
Rachel M from Miramar, FL
I've been struggling with some dryness/peeling on my lower lip and wanted something that would really penetrate and heal vs my other chapstick-type products that appear to be sitting on top but not solving the problem. This was my first Lano purchase, but I'm super impressed already. Lemon aid literally started working immediately and after that first use I no longer have peeling skin on my lips! The lemon smell is very faint and pleasant and the slight shimmer adds a nice final sheen in my opinion (nothing crazy shiny). This product isn't cheap but it's totally worth it if you don't already have smooth moisturized lips.
Best lip balm hands down
HBA Addict from IN
I bought this as my usual Hempz lip balm was out of stock. The price was daunting but it advertised as best lip balm in the world and actually it is. I am hooked, my daughter is hooked - this is addicting stuff. I like the Lemonade flavor but there are many to choose from including options that are tinted. Tried several and while this one is my fav, I like all. Have purchased this one 3 times now. Try it and be amazed.
Love, love it!
Gigi from Georgia
I use it twice a day as a treatment. It has truly helped my dry lips without having to be applied multiple times a day.
best lip product EVER
May from Boston
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.
