PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "Wonderful product. Directions say to apply excess and let lips absorb and if you do that it really does work! I have incredibly dry skin and lips, and have tried countless lip balms/moisturizers and this produced by far the best results. Even after one use, there was a huge improvement. No more cracked, dry or peeling lips. It's a thick petroleum jelly consistency and no noticeable smell." in 36 reviews
  • "This is hands down the most moisturizing lip balm. It's ointment in a tube and after just one application, you can really tell the difference already. I picked this up on my travels to the cold new York and it worked so well I was really impressed." in 26 reviews

Moisturizing lip balm that's reasonably priced, but it's honestly not much different from petroleum jelly (Vaseline). You can save a few $$ by getting Vaseline instead. I haven't tried Kiehl's flavored lip balms #1 (as I know there's Cranberry and Mango out) but this original one is very similar to Vaseline. Upon looking at the ingredients, it includes petrolatum.  The packaging is easy to fit in purses on the go, but there is no applicator so you're forced to squeeze a little bit on your fingertips and apply. As a busy woman that's always on the go, my fingers are not always clean so I prefer to not have to touch my lips! This lip balm DEFINITELY needs an applicator and I'm saddened it doesn't have one. I always have to find a tissue to wipe my finger on because the formula is so greasy like petroleum jelly. Due to its greasy formula, a little goes a long way to moisturize your lips. Slightly disappointed in Kiehl's and will not be purchasing this again but hopefully, they can improve their product soon!

My holy grail lip product. Seriously -- I've tried everything from drugstore chapstick to expensive "lip masks" and this is hands down the most effective lip product I've ever used. Sometimes over-moisturizing can ultimately dry out your lips in the long run. That is NOT the case with Kiehls. I put it on every night before I go to sleep. Usually, there is still some product on my lips when I wake up. I can really tell that my lips absorb the product, as they remain moisturized for the rest of the day. If it's especially dry, like during the winter months, I'll use the product during the day as well. I would easily pay five times more for this product, but the low cost is just another perk!

One of my favorite lip balms! It doesn’t feel like your typical lip balm- it almost has the consistency of Vaseline or something but it’s long lasting and effective which is most important! The only con about this is that it doesn’t have an applicator that you can apply directly to your lips.. You have to squirt it out before applying but that might not bother some people! Overall it’s not a deal breaker for me because the product itself is wonderful.

This lip balm is nice, but it’s not really my favorite. The packaging is kind of inconvient, because it just comes out of a little hole at the top and makes it kind of difficult to get an even application on the lips. It is a good lip balm, but it’s not my all time favorite. I have other that I reach for much more often than this one. However, this is a reasonably priced lip balm unlike a lot of other ones I use, so that’s why it still gets 4 stars. The consistency is kind of petroleum jelly like, and you definitely have to use your fingers to get this on properly.

I have a hard time finding a lip balm that I can put on before I go to sleep and let me wake up without chapped lips. This one does help, but it goes on very heavy and greasy and takes a long time to absorb. Of all the lip balm so I’ve tried, this one leaves the most on my pillow case in the morning. Other than that, it lasts forever and isn’t expensive.

I love this product for the winter time!! It’s a life saver especially since my lips get so dry and chapped due to the harsh weather. You apply just the right amount and you are set and I recommend this as a “lip mask” even if it’s  not that because you can exfoliate your lips at night and apply this and wake up to soft smooth lips!!!

I am the queen of losing lip balms. Kiehl's is the perfect on-the-go lip moisturizer. It doesn't make my lips feel sticky or make me feel the need to re-apply it every 20 min. The best part about it is the price point! It is affordable and great for addressing dry lips.

I'm not sure how I feel about this quite yet. There are days when I love this and then others when I feel as if this isn't quite doing what I want it to do. On most days, it's moisturizing enough for my lips. Sometimes my lips are in pretty bad condition and this is not enough. The consistency also seems to change with the seasons. During the summer months, it's VERY oily and runny. It also seems to go bad too quickly for my liking. With the price tag and performance so far, I don't see myself repurchasing this in the future.

Love this lip balm. It is very moisturizing, light and not sticky. Fun tip: I use this on the highlight points on my face before foundation for a nice and natural shine! I purchased this at Sephora and would definitely recommend and re-purchase!

This is always my go-to lip balm. I use it alone, under other lip products, and before bed. It keeps my lips protected so I don’t have to worry about them getting dry and chapped especially during the cold winter months.

I need a good lip moisturizer. Has anyone tried this? Looking for opinions before I waste money on another balm that doesn't live up to the hype.
