I love these lip balms! You can't beat them for this price. The ingredients are all natural, simple and non comedogenic (meaning they don't clog pores, in case it gets on your skin). The consistency is smooth, a bit shiny, but not slippery like coconut oil based lip balms. They all have different smells (sweet and fruit like) that are not too overwhelming. When you open the tubs, the balms are pretty strongly colored, but on the lips they are very subtle in color. Pink is almost invisible, it can be worn as a 'colorless' lip balm to boost natural lip color. Mauve is similar, but darker. Nude has a golden metallic sheen. Red has the highest color pay-off, but it's the only one I could not get to work, the color was spread unevenly. Please like if this was helpful!

We LOVE the Sierra Bees standard lip balms and have used them since Iherb first offered them on the trial deal. Unfortunately this slight change in their ingredients caused one in our household to have an adverse reaction that brought odd tingly and irritation. Because we LOVE Burt's Bees and have tried the Alba Botanica without any reaction, we never considered there would be an issue. I suspect it's the Lauryl Laurate... We liked the light color, but don't want the problems with it.

I have used it before the original one , that is why I ordered this one. I found that it smells bad like if it's expired. I tried to check the expiry date but it's not written

Disappointed!!!!!!!! I ordered this months ago, but I just tried all these four lip balms today, and they smell amazingly terrible especially the NUDE shimmer one, made me feel sick(i am not kidding, i really dislike the smell). I have no idea why, this is my first time trying Sierra Bees, i found this little bee so cute, that's y I bought them and have a go! I wouldn't dare to buy other lip balms of Sierra Bees again i guess. 第一次買S. Bees, 不知道為什麼, 4支都很臭, especially係nude shimmer個支, 一搽上咀就反胃的感覺, 我真係無辦法接受, 4支都要直接throw away, 真的浪費了....唉!

It makes my lips stay moisturized but I don't feel like they're tinted enough to be used alone. still needs to apply lipstick

I like the colors but not the taste of all of them, did not feel so great in terms of texture either

Didn't like it all. Had a funky scent, like it has gone bad. I also ordered their hand and body lotion . It smelled so bad (and it was unscented!?). Not gonna buy anything from this company again.

Again, same as the unscented baby lotion I bought from the same brand, I believe they were off or dried out. It’s cloggy and gluey. *sigh*

These are really pretty and look so nice on my lips, the best I found so far. Unfortunately the set I received yesterday is clearly rancid and yes, I tested them although they are rancid, because I wanted to see the effect on the lips, I wiped them off right after. So of course I suggest you restrain from buying the ones valid until April 2018. I am surprised this issue is not brought up in the recent reviews and disappointed that iherb would sell them without checking the quality of a product that approaches the validity term. However I do hope they produce them again, as they are so pretty I would buy on a heartbeat.
