Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect moisture for under lipsticks.
The consistency gets some used to. It's thick and tacky the entire wear. I wear alone and it moisturizes my lips really well, almost looks like a clear gloss. But it's perfect to wear under a lipstick. Most other lip balms are too slippery to put a lipstick over it, and when I do, it just gets the balm all over my lipstick and no color comes off on my lips. This one lets you put the lipstick over and keeps my lips so moisturized!! The other thing is that it has a smell to it, I don't know how to describe it. It's not a super fruity smell, which I wish it was more of. Can't wait to see if they make a rose one. I love shea moisture products.
Most Helpful Critical Review I would not buy this product again.
I found this lip gloss and thought yes they've come out with another amazing product. I was ready to buy 15 of them because I always keep lip gloss stocked but they were out of stock so I only bought what was available and I'd planned on waiting until the next delivery to buy more. Nope! After using it for 4 nights I noticed that it didn't really moisturize my lips that well. I'd apply it and then after awhile I noticed my lips were dry and kind of cracked. Shea Moisture makes a lot of amazing effective products but this one needs a little more work. When that happens I'd be happy to purchase it in the future.

JG from orange county
so... I'm big on lip care because my lips are constantly chapped, and I've tried a lot of chapsticks/lip balms. I wanted to try this one because I love this brand and I like shea butter, but I felt a little let down... It feels nice and soft on the lips, but there is no scent or feeling of hydration and that kind of bothers me... it feels very plain and I find myself having to reapply often.. still gonna keep it in my bag and use it up though!

Ok lip balm. I was hoping it would be fruit scented or tinted. It is neither. Difficult to squeeze out of tube.
Amy from Temple,Tx
Only reason I have it for stars is because it's super thick and hard to squeeze out but product is great and makes lips feel smooth and moisturized.
I would buy this product again and again
cb from Alaska
No lipgloss inside🤦♀️
Becca from Westland
I usually never leave bad reviews but there was completely no lip gloss! Nothing came out so I cut it open and I see that it was completely empty. What a shame smh.
Oh the smell!
Avery from Michigan
It was hard enough to get out which I don't mind because I love a thick balm. But the smell is so nasty. It smells old. I want to get through the product but it may be something I toss in my bag in case I need a lip balm in an emergency. The texture is great and I like the feel but it smells like old wood and not the good homey kind.
My new favorite lip balm brand
BobbiJ from St Paul, MN
Love this natural brand of lip balms! Very nourishing and smooth. They have lots of formulas as well. I keep 4-5 on hand at all times!
Thick and tastes like wood

Good Cruelty Free Lip Balm at a Great Price
4theanimals from Houston, TX
This product is thick like petroleum jelly but without the petroleum. You just need a little bit and it lasts for hours. Soothes and moisturizes. It is unscented, and I am a little disappointed because I hoped it would smell like/taste like sweet berries. The price is great and I love that it is cruelty free.
Ocean Waves from Detroit, Mi
I didn't like that I had to keep this is my bra to keep it warm enough to get any product out. Then, when I did get to apply some, I had to keep reapplying because it just DRYED mylips out!! Would not recommend.
My absolute favorite lip balm.
Mira Mae from undisclosed
Living in the frigid north, you need some serious lip balm. This my favorite so I ordered it in every flavor. I have one in my car, in my desk, in my purse, in my coat pocket and on my bedside table. I even have one tucked into my knitting basket.
Does the job
Queen from New York
I really like this lip balm! It doesn't really have a smell or taste.
My lips say "Aaaah"
Jupiter from undisclosed
My lips stay dry so I needed a lip balm that can quench my thirsty lips. This lip balm really does the trick. It's as if my lips are saying: "Aaaah, finally a lip balm that truly moisturizes!
Hal from California
I liked how thick it was and it seemed to be effective. That was until the bottom seam busted and all the product came out the back.
Maybe mine was a dud?
nans from Saipan
It was super hard to squeeze any balm out of the tube and almost as difficult to spread on my lips. The consistency is thick and chunky, but the smell was okay. If they reformulated the balm to make it smoother, I could see it working on a lot of people.
Good quality stuff but too thick for packaging
Cher Tom from Butler, PA
I bought this because I'm always looking for something that will help my super dry lips and I have enjoyed other products by Shea Moisture.
The product itself is wonderful. I like that it isn't artificially sweetened, tinted, or greasy, and it doesn't have any menthol in it.
It's only downfall is the formula is so thick that it cannot be squeezed easily through the tube. A different packaging technique would solve the problem. I've noticed through other reviews on different sites that it's common for the crimp at the end of the tube to eventually burst at the seam because of the insane amount of pressure you need to get the product out. Mine has also done this and now I can't put it in my purse or pocket, and actually it's a lot easier to extract with the burst end but not convenient anymore, I have to leave it at home. If I can find a small empty screw top container laying around I will definitely be emptying my mostly full tube into it, but I hope the company realizes that the delivery from the package was a poor choice and they will change it in the future.
Expected way more from the brand
♥️beauty from Mo
I love most Sheamoisture products but this one is a complete fail. The formula has an almost chunky feel. It doesn't spread easily on the lips and is hard to squeeze out of the package.
This product smells old and is hard to squeeze out
A loves makeup from North Carolina
Smells expired, hard to squeeze out of tube
lizzy from ann arbor / mi

Want my money back sadly
