“Definitely one of the best lip balms I have ever tried. A lot of lip balms leave my lips flaky so I need to reapply many times. This lip balm keeps my lips moisturized for a much longer time and it has a bit of shine without adding some weight. I also love the subtle raspberry flavor which is not too overpowering. Would like to try the pink shade next time!”
