Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick
Can't Stand the Smell
I really would love this lip balm, if it weren't for the overwhelming smell. I love the smell of chocolate, don't get me wrong, but it is such a powerful smell that I almost don't want to put it on sometimes because it will stick in my nose for much longer than I would want. And it smells pretty much like nesquick got shoved up my nose.
I went from the Hemp Lip Care (which I am madly in love with, and has no scent) to this stuff, just because I wanted to see if it was worth all of the good reviews. If you wouldn't mind the smell, this lip balm would be perfect because it works just as well as the Hemp lip balm. Both have amazing, silky soft textures that don't feel sticky or goopy and sink right into your lips. I just personally like something with a subtler scent!

Steep Price, Good Product
I got this as a gift during one of the 50% off sales, and $4 isn't a terrible price for this, but I wouldn't pay $8 for a balm unless it contained a little color or some shimmer.
My favorite kind had a shimmer, fruit flavor, and worked excellent, but can't be found anywhere anymore.
I love the cocoa butter scent, even if it is very faint in this particular product, and it actually does what it says it does (unlike the body balm stick); it moisturizes your lips. It is clear with no color, and glides on, leaving lips smooth, soft, and moisturized. I would buy anther one at the next half off sale, and I would recommend anyone else do the same.

Avoid Eating It!
It smells extremely YUMMY that every time i apply it to my lips, the room smells like chocolate. I am a habitual lip balm person, I hate when my lips are dry so I constantly apply lip balm almost every 30 minutes to an hour until I started using this! I only have to apply within 2-3 hours which is a huge improvement from other drugstore brand lip balm / chapsticks!
Yes, the price is a bit steep and for $8 you can get 2-4 chapsticks but trust me, you need to get this. At least buy it when TBS have their sale!

Best Lip Balm Ever
I should preface this by saying that I am an habitual lip balm user, and I have tried pretty much every lip balm on the market. This is the best. It has the perfect texture (slick but not too slick, stays put without being sticky, very gentle and smooth). It moisturizes so well that I don't have to reach for this nearly as often as I reach for other brands. And it smells delicious -- it's got a subtle chocolate scent. I recommend it to anyone who uses lip balm, and believe me, it's worth the price. (But you might just want to stock up when it's on sale, for added bang for your buck.)
