C.O Bigelow My Favorite Lip Balm No. 303

So, after reading numerous reviews about how wonderful this lip balm is, I decided to go out and buy it. You can purchase this at your local Bath and Body Works. It comes in a white tube with a black screw on top. This applies soooooooooooooooo smoothly and it feels like it justs melts away into your lips. The color isn't very appealing though; it looks very oily. The tube says that this product is fragrance free, but it does have a slight vanilla scent.

Product: 3/5
Quality: 4/5
Overall: 3/5
Price: $5.50 at Bath and Body Works or on C.O Bigelow's Website.

My Thoughts:
Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this lip balm. It glides on really smoothly, but it feels like it comes off in only a few minutes and you have to keep reapplying. You have to use a lot of the product to feel anything on your lips. I used it under a lip gloss and in a few minutes, I could already feel it going away. I would rather stick to my Burt's Bees or regular Chapstick. I wouldn't repurchase this product.

A little side note: My friend let me use her C.O Bigelow lip gloss from the Frosty line (which I think is only available during winter) in Peppermint and it is WONDERFUL!! I love it so much!!! I'm gonna stock up this winter.
