      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.

      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!

            After trying a ton of "okay" lip balms I can say after 12-18hrs I noticed a difference with the condition of my lips. At some point they became really dry and cracked but after just 12-18hrs the cracking began to heal. The only downside is the tube. I'd much rather it be rounded at the tip for ease of application and comfort and also not having to reapply the balm every other 20minutes but I guess it's expected if you work in a role where you're constantly talking. However im interested in trying the balm in the jar, seems to be all the rage.

            Please bring back the jar! I have used the jar lip balm for over 20 years and do not know how to go about replacing it. I will not try the tube as all the reviews say it is not the same thing, and I will trust them. Why would you discontinue a basic product that you have had for years and years? Where is the reasoning in this? Change for the sake of change is never good. . .

            Unpleasant to wear. Not the same as the Jar

            I've been using the jar version of this product for 15 years. When I went to pick up some more I was told they no longer make it, but the tube version was the same. It's not the same. The texture is too oily and runny. It actually feels unpleasant to wear. It's disappointing because I really enjoyed the jar version of this product, but this tube version will drive me to use your competitors products.

            Hi,
            I was told by the sales person that this is the same as the jar. Not so. I have purchased the jar faithfully for many years but have now switched to the small tub of Vaseline. It is not as good as the Kiehl's jar but much better than this.
            Please bring back the jar.
            Thank you.

              I always had problems with lip balms because they usually make my lips get drier... until I found Lip Balm #1!! I LOVE it. It works even in extreme temperatures. I totally recommend this product for people who have dry lips and get usually disappointed with regular balms. I will be my designated lip balm from now on.
              Ive read that the jar was better... I only try the tube and its gorgeous. I havent tried the scented balms either... just the classic one.

                I have been using this product for over 15 years and absolutely loved it, in a jar. When I tried its tube counterpart, it simply did not measure up. The texture was runny and oily, and did not protect my lips for nearly as long. I was extremely disappointed that my old time Kiehl's favorite was taken out of circulation and hope that it would be brought back SOON!

                It's an okay product. I probably will not repurchase unless it comes in a set with other goodies I like.
