This is a terrific lip balm, and it is far superior to the brand many people use, but I think it's best for lips that are already in pretty good condition. In simpler words, it's for maintenance. For maintenance, Burt's Bees can't be beat, and the scents in this pack are heavenly. I like them all; I don't even have a favorite. This goes on smoothly and there's no oily or greasy feel at all. The "good stuff" is all absorbed into your lips. However, if you want to smooth out some superficial vertical or horizontal lines in your lips, or if you want to plump them up and make them luscious for a special occasion, this isn't going to do the job. I use Burt's Bees during the day, especially during cooler weather or when I'm someplace really cold. I always have a tube in my purse, one on my vanity, one in my office desk drawer, one in the car, etc. You get the idea. But, I also use a collagen sleeping mask on my lips and a plumper for special occasions. But as a balm, I wouldn't use anything else but Burt's Bees!
