I use mine two different ways. I use it as an exfoliator and balm before I put on my lip product. It works well under anything, stains, pencils, and lipsticks. I also wear it as a balm if i'm feeling lazy and just avoid scooping any of the beads. I apply with my finger and just lightly layer on my lips and remove the beads with the tip of my finger before I apply. It seems weird but you want the balm to stay on before you apply, just not the beads

I'm sure you used it right. You just scrub your lips with the "exfoliating" lip balm on your finger. Doesn't work that great, I know.

Take a little bit on your finger and apply to your clean and dry lips. Rub on like you would chapstick with your fingers but continue past a swipe or two. Try to gently scrub all parts of your lip (including edges) and gently rinse. You will feel a residual conditioning layer once you have removed all of the scrubby bits. I usually do this before bed once a week and wake with refreshed and soft lips :D.

I had just applied it to my lips and rub them together and also use my fingers as needed.
The lady at Sephora told me to rub it on my lips for a few seconds then to rinse and apply chapstick.

I use it at night! Just rub it on and rub it in a little. Than you can get some tissue and glently pass it through your lips to remove the beads. It sounds funny but try it and you know what I am talking about. You can also do it again when you when you wake up in the morning if you want. If you don't like it I suggest using Bite's Butter (less mess)

Just dip your finger in it the jar - you don't need a lot - and gently work/rub into your lips. Then when absorbed apply your lip balm/gloss/stick.

I was unsure how to use as well. So I applied it to my lips, rubbed it all over and let it sit for a few minutes, then wiped it away with tissue. Then applied balm. I liked the results. I don't think there is any wrong way of exfoliating.

Before doing anything else, 'cause it can get messy! Dip in and get a half pea sz or less-but be sure to get some beads. Rub it on for a few (min and a half?). Then wipe off w a tissue. Follow w balm, gloss, or color.

through trial and error i have found that to just pat my finger on top of the product is the best way to get the smallest amount. otherwise the timed release beads sit on my lips and make me want to eat them as well as looking odd. if you use a very very small amount the beads dissolve into your lips. i put it on at night sometimes a few times and 'scrub' it off in the am with a clean dry toothbrush or my clairisonic.

Use your finger to apply it onto the lips, scrub it around for about 20 seconds and then use a washcloth over the lips to further exfoliate/wipe off the scrub. It's very fast and easy to use! Hope that helps!
