      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.

      Please bring back the Lip Balm #1 in a JAR!

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Scented Lip Balm #1:

      I have been using the lip balm in a jar for years and it's the best. Once in a while I would try other products to compare (Kiehl's and other brands), but always went back to the lip balm #1 in a jar. The tube just doesn't compare. The tube version is too liquidy and doesn't have an applicator so it's awkward to apply. Please Please Please bring back the jar...there's just no comparison!

        I wish I would have seen the reviews stating this has no applicator. I have to put on a lip brush or my finger to apply.

          Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Scented Lip Balm #1:

          I'm completely obsessed with lip products so I'm always looking for something new (though I received this as a gift from my sister). It's a decent product but the lack of an applicator makes it somewhat tiring and messy to use. The texture is nice (somewhere between straight vitamin E oil and petroleum) and the shine is nice as well. But as a Kiehls product I feel like it lacks something since it's mostly petroleum which you can buy just about anywhere. I will say that it works well for me when I put it under a sheer lipstick or gloss.

          I have had extremely dry and chapped lips for over a week and a half. I have tried everything from vaseline to burts bees to eos... everything. Nothing was helaing my lips until this stuff! Seriously amazing.

            Love the lip balm, but can't stand the tube. I hate touching my lips with my dirty hands, and once the tube is about halfway gone, there's no way to avoid squeezing out way too much balm every time you use it. I have wasted so much product even when I'm careful. Please Kiehl's upgrade the tube to an applicator tip. My L'Occitane tube has one, but I like the Kiehl's product so much more.

              Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Scented Lip Balm #1:

              Overall, I enjoy this product. However, it does not help or improve my dry and chapped lips. It's a quick fix. The moment it drys, my lips continue to feel uncomfortable. That does not happen with other basic chapsticks I've used in the past where I can feel hours of relief. If you're looking for an easy, natural and glossy look - this is for you! I've used it over matte lipsticks to help my lip color stay longer and add a sassy punch. Or i've used it on it's own to punch up a simple make-up day. I do not recommend if you're trying to heal troublesome winter lips. xoxo

                  I am a die hard Kiehl's fan but this product has been a disappointment. I have to reapply it every 15 minutes or so. The tube applicator gets very messy and even though I'm careful, I always manage to squeeze out way more than I need with no way to return some of the product into the tube. It is simply Vaseline in a cute Kiehl's outfit. I'll finish the two tubes I purchased but will not be buying it again.

                  I absolutely love this stuff!! And i never do product reviews, but I wanted to share how great it is. Within 3 days of use, my lips were super hydrated and soft. On my third day I didn't even apply any so that shows. I love the light fragrance, the consistency of it, and it goes a fairly long way. Great job Kiehl's!!

                    I would be very unhappy without my Lip Balm #1. It's addictive. I love its moistness; other balms just feel dry and tacky. But my stockpile says it all: I have pots and tubes of #1 stashed in both my work and home desks; nightstand; bathroom; kitchen; living room; gym bag; every purse... I really must have my Lip Balm #1! Like other reviewers, though, I really wish the tubes had a tip. There are times (subway, anyone?) when I really want to put some on, but there's no way I'm touching my face, much less my lips!

                        I got a promo of this product to try and I can't tell the difference between it and Vaseline. It's just the same, kind of greasy lip balm that you would expect. Nothing fancy in regards to texture or scent. The crazy thing is that it has a tip like a toothpaste tube, so it's awkward and difficult to dispense and apply. In the summer months, it liquifies in the heat of the car, then when you try to put it on, it drips and runs all over, then gets all over your hands. It's messy and not worth the price, your better off using something with an actual applicator tip.
