I love this lip balm. I have had chronic chapped lips all of my life and this is the first product I have ever found that nourishes my lips. I usually use chapstick, but I won't use that anymore as it is too waxy and just lays on top of the skin (petroleum-based). Shea butter is definitely the way to go if you have this problem too. I still get dry lips but I just keep this with me at all times and put on my lips when they are dry. I will definitely order this again.

Comments about Desert Essence Lip Rescue with Shea Butter, .15 oz:

I liked this product but I wasn't too impressed with the smell/taste so I probably won't get it again. My dog ate it before I had a chance to see how it worked long-term. Bad dog!

Comments about Desert Essence Lip Rescue with Shea Butter, .15 oz:

I used this everyday to keep my lips mosturized and nice. It did work good and it wasn't to thick or thin but the smell was so strong and I couldn't take it. I don't like strongly fragrenced items products and so I couldn't use this. However it didn't bother my friend at all and so I gave it to her. It depends on how much you react to the scent and if you like it or not.. Overall it did work good.

Too smelly

Comments about Desert Essence Lip Rescue with Shea Butter, .15 oz:

This lip balm smells really perfumey. It works well on my lips but it's so perfumey I can't stand to have it on anytime near eating or drinking anything. If not for the heavy scent, I'd rate it 5 stars.

          Comments about Desert Essence Lip Rescue with Shea Butter, .15 oz:

          I heard a report that petroleum-based lip protectors only dry out your lips more, making you dependent on using them frequently. The report also mentioned that shea butter lip balms are best so I decided to give this one a try. I will not use anything else now! It is true, within a single day I found I used this way less often than the other kinds (chapstick). The shea butter does not make your lips feel greasy, just natural and healthy. It smells yummy and tastes good too, but doesn't make me want to lick it all off. I think this is the perfect lip product with the exception that it doesn't have sun screen.

            I love the natural vegetarian ingredients, which are sometimes hard to come by in any given store. I really enjoy how it feels so smoothe and mouisturizing on my lips and I have to apply this before I go to bed. It's not too soft or waxy and I don't dislike the smell or taste. I've reordered because I liked it so much. Give it a try!

              I recently used this product on a trip to the Bahamas and it did an awesome job protecting my lips from the sun. I would highly recommend it.

                I use this when my lips are dry. I've always used chapstick in the past. This feels much better on my lips & smells better. It also works much better. With chapstick I would find myself biting at dry lips sometimes just a few hours after applying it. Not with this stuff. I'll never buy chapstick again.

                Most lip balms only feel good initially; then you have to apply it over and over during the day. This one doesn't do that. It keeps moisturizing your lips so that you don't feel the need to re-apply as often. The only negative is that the stick is too soft and waxy so that it breaks down quickly and melts if it's in a warm place - like your pocket.
