      Best Lip balm but not a functioning design on the tube

      I'm a lip balm fanatic and have been using this lip balm for 20 years and it's still the best formula that keeps your lips moist for a long time without having to reapply often. And believe me…I've tried about 100 other brands. The bad thing about this lip balm is the tube design. It has no easy application to apply on the lip. I've been asking them to change the tube design and I see there are many of the same comments here so I'm not sure why they will not update the design to have a lip application like the one they use with the SPF. Also, when I buy this at other stores such as Bluemercury and Dillards, it seems to be old. The balm is very yellow, watery and taste bitter. I had to return it to the store a few times now. Will try ordering directly through this sit and see if it's fresher.

      I bought this lip balm as an afterthought because I was looking for an inexpensive item to add to my order so that it would qualify for free shipping (why pay $7 for shipping when you can pay $7 for a lip balm instead, right?). I was really excited to try it, because I'm a bit of a lip balm fanatic. But I was really disappointed in this product. First of all, it's based in petrolatum, which comes from oil- the same oil that gasoline is made out of. The idea of putting that on my lips isn't too appealing, and the health conscious will caution against it. I knew this when I purchased the product so it wasn't a surprise- it is marketed honestly- but it's still too bad that this is the lip balm they choose to produce. Also, using the balm is not a pleasure. Because it is unscented, I wasn't expecting it to have any noticeable scent at all. However, the ingredients in the balm have quite a distinct smell and taste that gets into my mouth no matter how careful I am or how little I apply. I find it very unpleasant. If the ingredients were more natural and more food-quality, I wouldn't be as bothered by it even if I didn't enjoy it, but the taste of this balm makes me feel like I'm slathering chemicals all over my mouth. Yuck. In addition, the tube has a regular spout top, not a smooth slanted application top like most lip products in tubes. Not a huge deal, but not as easy to apply. That said, the balm does do a great job at moisturizing, softening, and protecting my lips. So it ultimately does what it is supposed to do! However, I don't enjoy putting it on my lips so I have been using it as a cuticle treatment instead.

      This is a great product but I like to use the jar instead of the tube. Even my 80 years old mom refused to use the tube and has to change another brand. Please listen to your customer and bring back the jar.

        I got this as a complimentary birthday gift, and now that I've used it for a few months I felt I could leave a review.

        The formula is good for chapped/dry lips, and it's really helped me this winter. It can stay on the lips a long time, but if I drink something I have to reapply it.

        The biggest issue I have is the applicator. The flat tip makes applying the product difficult, and most of it gets pushed off to the sides and into the grooves for the cap. Later on most of the product ends up in the cap.

        I do recommend it as it does a great job healing lips, and I want to buy it when I run out, but they need to change the applicator or redo the entire packaging before I do.

        This tube is a mess in the middle of the night when I can't see how much is squeezed out.
        I have loved the jar for years and years.
        Bring back the jar!

          Why change a product that people like and give them fewer choices? My husband & I used Kiehl's in the tub for years and were bummed last week when we tried to buy more. We bought the tubes instead but the texture is different, I don't think it's as emollient. Also, it is less friendly to use, you have to look at the amount you're squeezing out and when it get down to the end it is harder to use the product. If the tube gets warm it is likely to squeeze out too much. You can't just pick it up off the nightstand for dry lips in the middle of the night, you have to turn on the light to see the tube amount you are squeezing.

            I still have 2 pots hoarded, not sure what I will do when those run out. The tube is just NOT the same. Please, so many of us WANT the original jar why did you discontinue this of all things?

            This tube form of the lip balm isn't the same as the jar. I thought I could squeeze all the product out into an old lip balm jar and it would be the same, but the texture is different. I prefer the old product. It was a classic. Why fix what isn't broken?

            Even though the tube lip balm has the same name as the jar, it is not the same! I used the jar for years and I can't find anything that comes close. Please bring it back!

            I have tried the lip balm #1 twice. The first was in the summer. The product was very runny and oily I ended up throwing it away. I've tried it again over the winter and it is still runny. The moisturizering lip balm is ok, but please bring back the old classic that I had used for over 20 years!!

                I got a sample of this with my last purchase and I love it. I had been using the EOS lip balm for years but I'm replacing it completely with this product. I use it liberally before bed and wake up with soft lips. Then in the morning, after I exfoliate my lips, I apply just a little bit under my lip color. Not only does it keep my lips moist, but it makes my lipstick look so much better!
