As of today 01/30/11, you can purchase the following flavors (not all available on Sephora, but hopefully soon) : Lemon & Chamomile (yellow stripe on label) / Vanilla & Lavender (lavender stripe) / Natural Mint & Shea Butter (green stripe) / Black Tea & Blackberry (purple stripe) / Grapefruit & Ginger (light orange stripe). The company USED to make/sell an Acai Berry & Vanilla flavor, but I cannot find a site that still sells it.

Question
Does this really heal dry lips?
I have been using several different lip balms like EOS and even Blistex, but neither of them can actually heal my dry chapped lips. The more I put on the less I feel they are working. Does this lip balm actually heal dry lips, or does it just make your lips even more dry?

answer 1
I really like the Jack Black balms if I'm outside. They stay on a decent amount of time, my lips do not get sunburned, no wind burn. It really protects them when I'm spending time outside; gardening, hiking, running, etc. However, I do not find them to be the best thing for healing already dry lips. When I'm inside I use aqu@ph0r (not sure why it is different than regular v@sel!ne but it is) or lanol!n salve, both really hydrate. I especially like the lanol!n, but different things work for different people. I guess to sum up my answer to your question, I like the Jack Black balms for protecting my lips when I am outside, but I think there are more healing options if your lips are in really bad shape. They won't burn though, you know how some lip balms can really burn if your lips are in bad shape? These won't, of course neither will the other things I suggested.

I use this more for "maintenance" (apply every night before bed) and I never have chapped lips. It has great moisturizers, so I think it would work well for chapped lips. It DEFINITELY doesn't make lips worse or need to be re-applied constantly like Chapstick and other products.

This DOES have things that cause irritation and reactions. It contains sunscreen, flavoring, petroleum and lanolin. All of which can cause issues. Huge percentage of people , including myself, have allergies to lanolin (which comes from sheep wool). So I would recommend caution.

answer 2
I generally don't have sensitive skin/lips, and I DID have a bad reaction to all of the different flavors of this balm (I stubbornly tried every kind in the gift set, and was sorely disappointed). I think it may have to do with the chemical sunscreen in the product--sometimes sunscreens can hurt my face when they get wet. I don't know what else would be irritating, since the other ingredients are all pretty basic and benign.

If this causes you problems like it did for me, I would recommend using the Lavanila Healthy Lip Screen SPF 30. It it also natural, and uses physical rather chemical sunblocks, which can be less irritating.

Cheers!

This lip balm will help relieve chapped lips, and keep them soft. Very nice that it contains no petrolatum or mineral oil. Moisturizes with shea butter and avocado oil. One friend of mine who swears by petroleum jelly as a lip conditioner really liked the Jack Black lip balm when I gave it as a gift. If you anticipate the mint as too aggravating, try the lemon-chamomile. If you can get to a Sephora store, have them create you a sample to try for a few days before you purchase. The "sample" aspect of Sephora puts them ahead of the pack.

This product might irritate your skin if you are having trouble with allergic reactions... if the only thing you can use is vaseline you could try mixing different things with vaseline such as a drop of vanilla essential oil or any scent that you like... you can even color by mixing in a little bit of powdered blush to make the vaseline tinted...its worth a try, and it is an easy way to make cheap lip gloss and spice up the old stuff!

I'm a woman, and I swear, this is the best lipbalm I've ever tried.
As for the texture, I can't really comment on it because that's really a preferance- but it's moisturizing, and works better than medicated blistex on a chapped lips. It feels tad like vaseline, without being sticky, or feeling greasy. I love lip products so I've tried on many famous brands with great reviews(I.E:Burts bee, Ecos lipbalm,Body shop lipbalms, Benefit lipbalm) but I consider this to be BEST lipbalm I've ever tried.I know it's not the cheapest lip product out there, but considering the quality, I think it's worth every penny. I highly recommand it to both men and woman.

I didnt have ANY problems with Jack Black Lip Balm...it is all natural and super soothing. It does have a really high spf, but i guess the other ingredients are so pure and natural that it didnt make a difference on my lips. I HIGHLY recommend this product...I use it every day now.

Yes but not as extreme. If you glob it on, of course it'll be shiny but it you just put a bit on, then it's not shiny at all really.

It does leave a slight gloss behind (nothing no way as near as shiny as vaseline). But I like the little gloss b/c I'm a girl lol! A shiver comparable to carmax

The shine depends on how heavily you apply it. A thin layer doesn't have much shine at all. A thick layer definitely looks moist, but it is still not as shiny as vaseline. And if you blot it a little bit with your finger, it will cut down on the shine quite a bit.

I don't think it looks glossy on your lips, but there is a slight shine that makes your lips look really supple without looking oily or sticky.

Very slight gloss. I don't find it to be as shiny as Vaseline.

Question
Are these *heavily* scented?
I find that most fragranced lip products irritate my lips something fierce -- I could never use this in the mint flavor, for instance. And other products (Fresh Sugar lip balms) are scented so strongly I don't even want to wear them. So... does the Jacl Black stuff have a very strong scent? Has anyone found the scent irritating at all?

They are not overly scented, if you want a lip balm with less of a fragrance, I suggest the Shea Butter & Vitamin E .

I have used a lot of different lip products, and I have to say Jack Blacks doesn't have a strong smell in my opinion

I find every "flavor" with the exception of the Shea Butter one overwhelmingly fragranced. I ended up throwing away several tubes that came in a gift set because wearing them felt like gargling perfume, and I'm not even exaggerating. I am somewhat sensitive to fragrances, but I rarely have a problem with a lip product. To be clear, it's not about liking or disliking the FLAVOR of the balm, it's about that woozy, suffocating sensation that I associate with overpowering synthetic fragrances, and for me, all of the flavors (except for Shea Butter) triggered that sensation so badly it was unbearable.

I have tried the lemon, mango, mint and regular shea butter. They do have a scent, but I do not find it too strong and I feel like it disipates the longer I have it on. There is no taste though.

I use the vanilla lavender scent - it don't find it to be overpowering. I also don't feel like I am "tasting" it all the time either which is nice.

no, it's not overwhelming at all. And with this product, I find I don't need to lather it on. A little bit goes a long way. The scent is perfect.

I haven't found the scent to be overpowering at all. I typically am also very sensitive to scents and I find that the sent of this lip balm is faint however I only have the black tea and blackberry and the grapefruit and ginger.

I have the grapefruit lip balm. Initally the scent can be kind of strong but it goes away fast. The balm still leaves your lips moisturized.

Question
BIGGER SIZE?
I received a sample of this from a friend to try and it is very good at moisturizing. The problem is this tube is so tiny containing just right at 2 inches of product, it wouldn't even last but a few weeks in this cold, windy weather or on hot, windy summers. Please ask Jack Black if this tube can be made in the.5oz size tubes like many others lip balms? This may be a super product for some, but for this price and amount, it's not worth it to me, this tube is more like a tester or trial size. BIGGER SIZE TUBE PLEASE?

It's really not that big, but you don't need to use much product. It's maybe half the size of a "normal" tube. I find it to be a perfect size.

I think it's a good size, because a little goes a long way. If you use extra then the amount your lips need...it's kinda useless. You lips can only absorb so much!

I buy the original Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 and it lasts me about 8 months. I just squeeze a tiny amount out (a little goes a LONG way), and apply to my lips. Use about the size of a ballpoint pen tip. You will find that is all you need, unless you do something to remove it, like kissing or eating. I don't like to use too much and will wipe some off if I over apply because it will feel like a heavy lip mask if you use too much. Shea butter and avocado oil work differently than other products so I had to get used to the difference in application of the product.
I am quite addicted to this product and if I do not use it every day (1-3 times a day) my lips become chapped because I live in a desert, but with this balm, they stay smooth. I haven't found anything else that works as well. Actually, other products seem to make my lips worse. This is a godsend, and I'm not even a guy.

I believe that this does come in a larger size, but they're alot more expensive and aren't very common in local Sephoras. Try the jack black website for more information.

It may be small but definitely lasts me a few weeks. I have lips that constantly become dry but with constant use there is less of a need to reapply.

i agree, it's a wonderful product and i'd love to have it in a bigger size because i'm one of those people who puts on lip balm constantly just because i like the feeling of it on haha. you're better off going to jack black's official product website to leave this suggestion though :)
