Rated 4.37 out of 5 stars
reading some of the reviews i guess diff ppl have certain ways they prefer their lip balm to be. bc i bought this randomly on a whim and it's the best lip balm i've tried. it's thick enough that u can feel it on your lips soaking in, but it's not so thick where it's like a lip gloss. it also has just the right amount of oiliness/slickness too it. i don't like feeling like my lips are sliding around/when a lip balm is too thin. but this is a really nice middle ground. another problem i have w a lot of nice lip balms is they usually have a tint or make my lips look super shiny which is awesome when i have makeup on n stuff but idk i don't like the way they usually look without makeup. so this is a super nice everyday one that makes your lips shiny but not glossy, and also idk if it's bc it's so hydrating but even tho it's clear it makes my lips just a touch more pink which is cute. it is a bit expensive but the tube seems pretty durable so i'd say as long as you don't lose it it's really not too bad of a deal.
ive had this product for several months now and it's OK. it is made up of oils: vegetable oil, coconut derived stuff and avocado. well we can all see the list and google ingredients. so it's definitely got a slip and doesn't absorb quickly. it has a light rose scent, but the more research I do the less I desire any fragrance for the negative long term effects added scents can have on us. overall it does the job, but i'm definitely looking for cleaner options, ingredient wise. I didn't expect vegetable oil to be an ingredient. I don't even use that to cook any food with much less want it in a balm, but if youre like me and already have soft plump lips it works fine.

Ive tried so many lip balms on the market & one thing ive noticed is that you have to constantly reapply them. This one right here lasts on me even after eating & drinking, which is actually incredible! The moisture stays locked in, I absolutely love it

I have been using this lip balm for 5 years. I love the smell. It does a great job hydrating and the aroma is very pleasing. This particular order the packaging was different and there is something different that I can't put my finger on. I recommend this as a splurge, especially on sale.

The feel, consistency and moisturizing properties of this balm is great but I hate and struggle with lip treatments that smell like flowers or perfume. IMO, they have no place on your lips.. Although the scent is beautiful, the taste is horrible if you accidentally lick your lips. My suggestion is to skip any scents that you wouldn't eat.

Lips broke out in little blisters on lower lip. I did like the creamy feel of the balm and the smell was beautiful but could not buy this product again.

the only lip balm that works for me. the price point is worth it, it lasts me a good few months. if you like a slight hint of floral, the rose version is perfect. if not, the original is the same great quality.
Rhonda from Atlanta, Georgia
I use this great lip balm for applying during the winter months, before bed and during the day when I need a bit more moisture. Love all of Mario Badescu products. I am a HUGE fan!
Gin from Nunya
Nice rose smell. product doesn't sit on your lips like Burt's and bees does. This product absorbs into your lips.
Jasmine from Redding, California
I bought this because of the great reviews, and it did not disappoint! Best lip balm I've ever had. I apply in the morning, sometimes follow it up with lip gloss, sometimes I don't, but either way, I don't need to reapply for the rest of the day. I just leave it in my makeup case, in my room, and my lips are soft and hydrated all day, and it carries on to the next day too. And I love the subtle, pretty scent of rose. I'm seriously no longer interested in buying any other chapstick or lip balm.

This is the best lip balm I have ever had. Living where I do the weather is back and forth and the change in climate REALLY likes to make my lips overly dry. Today my lips were stinging badly and I put this on and immediately in about 1 minute my lips feel way better. I would buy out the world's stock of this if I had the money. The only downside I have is the taste. I couldn't describe it but I can see people thinking the rose one is gross, so get the non-scented if you are sensitive to tastes/smells.

This formula is the best; not sticky, smooth, sinks in but also leaves a protective barrier. Especially when my lips are totally dry and cracked this is such a comforting product.

I'm a tried and true solid stick chapstick wearer. I noticed that after a certain point it wasn't working the way I wanted. I got this on a lark, I was buying another product by Mario Badescu and it was in the "recommended" section AND on sale. So I dropped it in my cart. Best decision, it's super smooth, smelled light and rosy, and the tube with the angle dispenser is small enough for pockets or bags. Recommended for anyone who wants lip hydration with a gloss look and feel.

I use it everyday

I've tried a couple high end lip balms but this brand I have found to be the best. The balm doesn't sit on your lips but instead gets absorbed. After a week my dry cracked lips looked like the lips in a lipstick commercial, so smooth and luscious. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for a holy grail lip balm.
Beth from Kentucky
I have seriously chapped lips that I end up having to apply chapstick over and over, even then they still feel chapped or like they have a coating over them. They never feel better, until I got this. If you have chapped lips get this, it's rich, buttery and will immediately help.

My favorite go to lip balm. Very moisturizing and smooth.
Spicy from Hampton, Virginia
I like to use it at night.
Dani from Chicago
My lips were so badly cracked and peeling. With in less than 2 days my lips were soft and healed quickly. The scent of the balm is so light and pleasing. A little dab of the balm goes along way. I will be getting again.
yuh from ny
it's good but i hate the smell, the original one is so much better for the smell
Izzy from US
I love this so much, it hydrates well and makes your lips glossy and beautiful. The only reason it's only four stars is because I don't really like the rose smell. But I do a bit!
Emily from PA
I love this balm for when I need something stronger than the typical waxy balm formula - love that it goes on sort of like a liquid or gel and I feel like it's better for very dry lips. Smells good too!
Britt from Louisiana
Perfect product! Actually adds moisture to lips!!
Ivy from California
This is such a fantastic lip balm! I wish I had purchased every one that was in stock. My lips feel amazing when I use it and the hydration lasts after I no longer feel the balm. The fragrance (rose) is absolutely beautiful and I wish more brands would use rose water and rose oil in their products. It's a fantastic ingredient.
