    Rose Gold is so pretty!

    depechegirl02 (verified owner)

    I purchased a Rose Gold version of this lip balm and I really like it! It gives my lips a little bit of color but not too much. Plus I love the fact that it’s vegan.

    Bare is Great

    Ereka (verified owner)

    I read the reviews about how small it is, and the fact that it’s overpriced, but decided to give it a go anyway. This is my first zero waste lip balm. My previous lip balm was only 4g for almost $4, so I do agree that this lip balm is a bit overpriced, but I would honestly purchase it again. The lip balm I was using had a specific finish that I like, and this almost gives me that exact same finish, which is hard for me to find. The finish I’m talking about is basically clear lip gloss finish without using an actual lip gloss. It can get a little messy to use, so that’s something I had to get used to. It smells nice, but doesn’t taste great. Neither does my previous plastic lip balm, so this isn’t a deal breaker for me. The fact that it’s plastic free and the finish is what I like has completely sold me. It is also moisturizing, so I’d say it’s worth it. I will definitely repurchase once I’m running low, and I will probably try the other colors as well.

    Wanted the color to be more, but still like the feel

    morse.michaelar (verified owner)

    I also have the Bare lip balm, so I was hoping that when I bought the Nude, it would still put a natural tint on my lips. I can’t say that I see the difference between the two, but this brand of sustainably-packaged lip balms are still a great alternative to the Burt’s Bees life I used to live!

    Great scent/ neutral taste and feels great, which is really all I’m looking for. It is a bit small, but if it can last me at least 3-4 months I’ll consider it worth the money.

    Wish I had noticed how small it was...

    Oscar (verified owner)

    Can’t complain too much about how small this because the info is there, but oh my god is this small. I bought this as a gift, at least expecting it to be as big as my other low-waste lip balms but it was far smaller for far less content.

    A tad too expensive in my opinion

    This lip balm works great. I like it a lot and it helps me during the winter. It goes smoothly on and lasts a while. I got the bide color and would buy it again.My only issue is the price is a little high for such a small quantity. I am hoping since it works so well with a small quantity it will not run out quickly.

    Best lip balm

    victoriamartinko (verified owner)

    This is the best low waste lip balm I have tried. I appreciate the really minimal ingredients because I get irritation with other lip balm’s with more in them. I don’t understand the prior review stating this is ridiculous overpriced and is half the size of other lip balm’s because this is actually twice the size of my burts bees and is really reasonably priced for supporting a smaller brand. Perhaps the packaging is deceiving because you aren’t getting plastic packaging that makes you think you are getting more product. I will definitely be buying this again when I am out

    Ridiculously overpriced but feels nice

    Annie (verified owner)

    This product has 4 ingredients (wax, oil, scent, vitamin) and is about half the size of a regular size chapstick so it’s kind of crazy to me that its $12 each for something you could make at home. That being said if you’re willing to pay for the convienience- it feels nice.

    It applies very nicely. It only takes a little bit of product to hydrate my lips and it lasts for a while. I got the nude color, it’s a nice natural tint and shine. I plan on trying their other colors when I need more lip balm.

    Perfect Lip Balm

    This is the smoothest lip balm, I am obsessed. It it buttery smooth, and the nude color has this perfect hint-of-tint.
