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.

One of the best treatments I've tried. I have very dry lips and a compulsion to bite at them any time I feel the slightest hint of flaking skin. This is one of the only products that feels like it's healing rather than simply coating, and that doesn't feel like I've spread scented glue on my mouth. It is on the thicker side, but it still has slip instead of being too sticky. Probably wouldn't work well under lip color, but it's fine on its own and overnight. It smells like the name suggest, fresh lemonade.
Helped with Chronically Dry/Peeling Lips
HayleyLondon from Chicago
I bought this product because I wanted some thing that would help with exfoliation without having actual pieces of aggregate, like sugar.
Within two days, this weird thing occurred where a large layer of skin peeled off of my lips in one big piece and now my lips are baby soft even when not wearing the product. This is a first for me! I was so happy.
I also have issues with flavored lip balms because I unknowingly lick them off. Although this smells like lemonade, it has no flavor. I love that aspect of the product!
It is also really thick and wears really nicely.
Typically I use Dr. Lipp products, but they stopped working for me. This is much better and cheaper for me. I'll be exploring the other products made by Lano!

I honestly can't live without this. It's the only thing that heals my lips when chapped.
One of My All Time Favorite Lip Treatments
MStr7 from Madison, WI
I love all of Lano's products (that I've tried so far). This lip treatment is comparable to the consistency of the
Lano Lips Banana Balm Lip Sheen 3 In 1 . It starts off a little solid, but then melts into your lips (no stickiness either). I love the lemon flavor too. Perfect for summer. It really helps to nourish and protect dry lips too. One of my favorite lip balms ever.
Lemony fresh, nourishing lip product
Dani from Utah
Before purchasing this, I think buyers need to have an understanding of what lanolin (the main ingredient in this product) is. Lanolin is also known as "wool grease" and is a product that is naturally secreted by wool-bearing animals such as sheep, which is what allows the wool to be water resistant. The lanolin is removed from fleeces after they are sheared from the animal and then processed separately from the wool. The animals are not harmed in this process. It should be expected that a lanolin based product is likely going to have a thick, greasy consistency, but it is prized for it's emollient and conditioning properties.
We moved to the desert a few months ago and I have been left with horrible dry, chapped lips all winter. My usual go-to lip balms haven't gotten the job done. Vaseline has helped at night, but I wanted to try something different. I was attracted to this product because of the lanolin and the lemon scent.
My initial impression was that this product is *very* thick if cold or at room temperature and does take some force to squeeze out of the tube. It will get melty if stored in your pocket, or in a hot car, so be aware of that! To apply this I prefer to squeeze the tube and put a little on my finger and then spread it on my lips as opposed to directly applying the product. A little bit really will go a long way! There is a pleasant lemon-y scent that is strong but not overpowering. It has a slight lemon flavor as well. This does have some shimmer to it as advertised, which does leave you with that sort of frosted lip look that is reminiscent of the lip glosses I used as a pre-teen. I'm not sure I would wear this out in public, but I love to apply it at bed time and once or twice a day around the house.
I have gotten the results I was looking for and I find this product pleasant to use. While this costs more than I would normally pay for a lip product, I do think I would purchase this again.
so glad I purchased
J from VA
We had a frigid couple of weeks here and my lips were suffering until I found this product!!! I wish I'd found it sooner. I don't mind the shimmer too much because my lips are so soft and moisturized now
Gianna from De
This lip treatment did absolutely nothing for me. It didn't make my lips soft at all. It just felt like thick grease sitting on my lips. And the shimmer? Why shimmer? I didn't like this at all. WAYYYY over priced. I have chapsticks and scrubs that work way better for a lower price. Saw NO difference in my lips. I don't recommend!!
NAK23 from NYC
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???
Marsie from USA
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!
