I got this product as a part of a quarterly beauty package program, so thankfully it was "free." I basically use it at night to keep lips moisturized but not too shiny, and without any color to deposit on my sheets. You either love or hate York peppermint patties - this is close to the original, but thankfully not as strong. It serves its purpose at night, but I imagine during the day you'd have to touch up several times. And if you're looking for mint, I'd rather go for a lip plumping gloss.
