No matter what I put my lips through in terms of matte lipstick, the brutal windy winter weather, and falling asleep forgetting to moisturize my lips, I put this on in the morning on no lipstick days on my visibly chapped lips and they are immediately hydrated, supple, smoothed and smell delicious to boot (like real sugar). I have this in the nude and rose tints and like them equally both. I also appreciate the spf 15 for day in these but the intensely moisturizing and consistency of these is best for fall/winter as opposed to spring/summer. Like I wouldn't apply this and kiss someone as it would get all over them (not as bad as Vaseline or Kiehl's #1, both of which I cannot stand for their consistency), but this is not a light lip balm in the least. But this is a real relief during the winters especially.
