I recently developed an alergy to beeswax. It took most of a year to narrow down the problem of swollen, itchy, red lips to products containing beeswax. I am so happy that Real Purity lipstick is made with wax from a plant. I recently tried the vitamin E lip balm and it has been great. Since discovering my alergy, I had been using only petroleum jelly. The vitamin E lip balm works great under lipstick or alone. I agree with others that the packaging could be better. I turn the stick up only slightly to use to help prevent breakage. I think, perhaps, a chap stick-type container might work better for this product. I also think it would make the packaging less expensive and, maybe, by extension, lower the consumer price a bit.
Healed my lips
I have been using Burts Bees chapstick forever, but my recently my lips had seemed like they were always chapped. I've had this product for just a few weeks, and now my lips are smooth again and retain their natural color. The product does not feel thick, and I have not had any problems with it melting (just don't leave it in your car in the middle of summer!)
New Packaging Please!
I really love the balm itself! My lips had been super dry for so long, and this is what did the trick! Now they're nice and smooth and moist. Love! The problem is the packaging. It's in a lipstick tube and the first time I tried to put it on, it was a little too soft, to it broke right off. My solution was to mash the entire thing into one of the sample containers (the whole thing fits perfectly). Otherwise, I'd say, keep it in the fridge! :)

I think that I like this product, but find a strange odor to the product. I use grapeseed oil and that is what I associate yes meek with. My stick is also not attached inside the tube so it wiggles around and mashes up the side if the balm stick. It does feel nice but I am disappointed that I was sent a broken tube if balm. I'm not sure it's worth the money to order again.
We are working on a new container it should be out soon!
Great product, bad packaging
Love this lip balm – it's smooth, rich, creamy, and so nourishing for my lips, especially after spending too much time in the sun. However, the lipstick tube is unnecessary and somewhat wasteful. I've been as careful as possible, but the stick keeps breaking. Towards the bottom, a chunk of it was stuck down in the bottom of the tube. The product is so wonderful, there must be another packing solution.+
We are working on that right now.

I really like this lip balm. It goes on super smooth and doesn't leave any 'chalk' marks in the corn of my lips like most moisturizing sticks do. It seems to help my dry lips heal. The only downside is my lips feel coated long after I put it on so sometimes I just wipe it off. I don't like the heavy oil feeling that seems to be there after wearing it for awhile.
Very soft and creamy
I have always licked my lips a lot, and it is so nice to know that I am "eating" a natural product. I use the Real Purity lipstick for the same reason.
I really love this Vitamin E lip balm. It's creamy smooth and heals my lips when they get dry from winter weather.
Far superior to any 'chapstick' I've ever used. It's healing powers are incredible!
This is an incredible product. It leaves a dewy, matte finish that is not slick or greasy. My lips have never been happier.
