I purchased these lip balms before from a different retailer, and I thought it was the best, longest-lasting balm I have tried. It goes on smoothly and has no flavor which I really like. It has a great, smooth consistency and provides a nice satin, healthy sheen to lips. I think this balm works great as an overnight lip treatment for very dry, chapped lips, but it also works great as a day balm with or without lip color. I love the slim tubes, and although some mention it seeming like not a lot of product for the cost, I find each tube lasts quite a while because you don't have to reapply as often as most other lip balms. I also feel confident this is the genuine product because it is exactly as the previously purchased product.
I wear a lot of matte lipsticks that dry my lips out, so I put this stuff on after I take my makeup off & go to bed. The difference in the morning is amazing!
