I've been in love with the Glossier balmdotcoms for ages now, but I hate that their tubes aren't made for applying into lips! I've been searching for a decent dupe to them for a while now, and this is a perfect dupe for the Glossier mint balm flavor. The consistency is pretty liquid once it melts with your lip temperature, but is semi-thick in texture which is perfect for my lips. My lips get easily chapped very often and they require consistent lip balm application, so I tend to go for more thick textures… plus thicker textures make my lips feel like they've been swaddled in pillows. This balm is pillowy with that lovely mint tingling sensation that mint balms give. This balm also doesn't taste like anything which is something I personally enjoy as I don't want my balm to contribute to my candy cravings. This balm does have a bit of fragrance from the mint, so be warned if you're sensitive to fragrance.
I would recommend this if you:
- want a thin consistency that warms up to your body temperature.
- want something pillowy on your lips.
- like thicker textures in balms.
- don't want to taste your balms.
- enjoy a minty tingling sensation.
- love Glossier's lip balms.
I would not recommend this if you:
- don't like thicker textures in your balms.
- want something that doesn't give a tingling sensation on your lips.
- want a balm that has an actual flavor to it.
- are sensitive to fragrance.
I like to use this before bed. A minty and cooling sensation. Can feel like there's a lot of "vaseline" on my lips if I apply more than a pea sized amount
C'mon Lano, the tube was half full! Customers are not getting the full amount of product they advertise. When I first opened it a ton of air came out of the opening of the tube when I squeezed it, so clearly half empty. It's a nice lip balm but it's definitely not worth the money.
My girls swear by this lip balm. They put it on and say it lasts longer than any other lip balm they have tried.
I love this stuff. I have the banana and the mint: they are so thick and last on the lips a while.
I love this lip balm! I have sensitive skin and can't use any of the usual lip balms (I.e. Chapstick, Eso, Burt's Bees). So having one I don't react to is lovely!
Also, the time between applications is a lot longer than other balms I've tried.
Use it daily on my lips. Carry one in my purse and one with me. The only lip balm that keeps my lips moisturized in the winter. Wish it had an spf. My lips burned in the summertime in HAWAII.
So remember to use an sfp on your lips when using this!
