I love other L'Occitane products and was anxious to try the lip balm.
What I found is that it is definitely not worth $10 - or even $2.

Save yourself $7 and a lot of frustration.

Don't be surprised if suddenly you realize,"Hey! Wait a minute! There ARE nine Supreme Court justices! I always forget that guy with the teen-tiny (...)." You won't forget him now!
