I did experience mild numbing at first. THE SOLUTION: try putting less product!!! I never felt numbing after that!

Hey just came back to say, I had two sets of the samples the first time the clear one made my lips go numb/ burn and the skin around my mouth sweat. The second set, I experienced mild numbing only, nothing unpleasant (I managed to lose all my lip balms and was desperate. Seriously, where do they go? Do they hang out with the missing mates to my socks? Underwear gnomes?)
Wondering if they have a quality control issue.
But if it's a batch issue, it would help explain why some people experience it and some don't, aside from individual sensitivity.

I have not experienced numbing myself, but I would think the main ingredient you would consider would be the trans-resveratrol. Unfortunately all these beautiful, exotic ingredients are not in most of what we already own, so it's hard to compare and say, "You know, every time I use a lip product with xyz in it, I get a numbing sensation"

I can always tell what temperature my heater is on by how difficult it is to squeeze the product out. It is extremely solid and requires a lot of pressure when the environment is cold. It sometimes helps to rub the tube between your palms to warm it up before application. It's worth the struggle!

I could leave this on all day, and reapply too, it's just a great barrier for the cold, dry air. I haven't noticed any ill effects from leaving it on all day, it's just a great moisturizer for your lips!

You don't technically need to take it off. I actually apply mine before bed and let it soak in over night. I have found this to be the best way to use it. As far as how much, i would start with just a little bit, enough for a thin layer, and if you feel like your lips are still dry, or in need of 'healing' in some areas then add a little more. Just know a little goes a long way hear!

When you first get it, to open it you must puncture the thin layer of metal. I used nail scissors, however afterward I noticed you can also do that by pointing the top of the cap toward the mouth of the tube and applying pressure.

My experience with the Sugar product was it did not last long and was not very moisturizing. The Bite Agave Lip Mask STAYS on and lasts. It is thick (not to be confused with sticky) and really moisturizes and hydrates very dry lips. Hands down, I choose the Agave Lip Mask. I purchased a tube last night and I'm so in love, that I'm going back today for another tube so I won't run out!

No comparison. I used Fresh Sugar (multiple products including white tube) for years - comforting but never really made my lips better (like 99% of the lip products out there). This is different, for me at least. My lips are actually better! I truly love this product.

The Fresh product is like a glossy lip balm. It is very soft and easily wiped off your lips but is also easily applied since it is packaged like a lipstick. The Bite product is really, really stiff and sticks to your lips really well - much longer that the Fresh product. It does, however, come in a tube and is really hard to squeeze the tube and get out any product. Good thing you don't need to apply it so often! I prefer Bite's product when going outside just to offer a layer of protection against the elements and prevent further moisture loss.

Question
BB Agave Lip Mask vs BB Superfruit Butter?
I live in Vegas where the weather is dry all year-round. Because of this, I've been on the search for something that will keep my lips hydrated and crack-free.

I've read great things about both BB's Agave Lip Mask and the BB Superfruit Butter. My question is this: which should I go for? Or is this best as a night-treatment and the butter is best during the day?

I don't mind spending the extra money if it means my lips are finally hydrated, so if you have tried one vs the other, or even the combo, please let me know what you think!

The agave lip mask! I broke up with Carmex after 25 years for the agave lip mask. It's the only lip product I've ever used that I can honestly say provides skincare benefits for your lips. It's very smooth going on and provides conditioning and moisture to lips that I can see and feel. It feels like lip balm which made me keep using it- I couldn't stand anything on my lips without first using Carmex to cover them- and they were a dried out hot mess. The agave lip mask is formulated to do something besides give you the illusion that your lips aren't dry just bc they aren't chapped.

How does one remove it to cleanse the lips for lipstick?
Washing the lips would only exacerbate any issues you are trying to fix with the product. Does one put lipstick over it? There was no information with the product. No slip, no nothing! But, it was packaged like Fort Knox! Tough to get out of the box and then hard to get the material out of the tube. I do like it tho.

I use this product at night before I go to bed and by the time I wake up in the morning it has been absorbed so I don't have to worry about it interfering with whatever lip product I'm going to use during the day. You can try using it that way. Using it with a lipstick or lipgloss could be challenging though because it has such a thick consistency. It's really like a treatment product and not so much a lip balm.

The word "mask" is misleading. Like you are supposed to remove it after a certain time. I use it anytime, bedtime, alone, under lipstick (thin layer so what you put on top doesn't slip off). I have had my tube for almost a year, using it most days and bedtimes. Using just the tiny amount that starts to bulge out after you have been squeezing it a while (ha ha). Squeeze from the bottom. If you misshape the middle, the tube is metal and can form cracks and leaks.

It is possible. I would advise stopping use for at least a week and see if the issue resolves itself, if it does than you know this was the culprit.

Yes. It took me a bit to realize it, but I get a reaction too. I think I've figured out why I get a reaction though, I have a metal/nickel allergy. It took me a bit to put two-and-two together, but the packaging is made of metal. I don't doubt that the tubing tainted the balm and is causing my reaction. Do you also have a metal allergy? If so, this could be the cause of your reaction as well. Also, you could be allergic to Agave or Lanolin. If you are still having a reaction, stop using this immediately and return to Sephora to get your money back. They will take it. Good luck!

Are you allergic to wool? One of the ingredients is lanolin, which is a naturally occurring oil found on sheep's wool.
So if you're highly sensitive to wool then I could definitely see your lips becoming dryer and cracked, etc.

Question
Very thick and hard to get out of the tube
Does anyone have tips on how to use it? Would it help if I mixed it with some petroleum jelly (the consistency is so thick)?

I put in the crook of my elbow to help warm it up, or even in my armpit. I also squeeze from the bottom instead of the top. It's a lot easier.

I sit mine by my heater in my bedroom haha. I know it sounds ridiculous but there is no other way I have found to melt down this product to make it easier for application!

The first few uses i also found it pretty thick and difficult to get out of the tube BUT i would not recommend pairing it with any other products, just store it in a relatively warm area and over a few uses it will "soften up" more or less

The thick consistancy is what allows the product to be long-wearing. Once applied to your lips and let it settle for a few minutes, it feels like any other lip balm!

I rub the tube in my hands for a couple of minutes, which slightly heats and softens the product. Do that and you might be able to better control how much to squeeze out and put on a thinner layer.

Mine was very hard to get out of the package at first too. I set it somewhere warmer & found it softened up a bit on its own. It's much easier to work with now.

I find that warming the tube up between your hands for a minute or so really helps get it out of the tube with ease and makes for a smoother application. Hope that helps :)

Do not mix it with anything. Warm it up in your hands if you have to. Petroleum Jelly is definitely not food-grade and that defeats the purpose of using such expensive/effective products!

While the lid is on try pushing some of it to the front of the tube. Also, apply it to your finger and swipe it onto your lips from their. This really helped me.

It's difficult to get the product out of the tube especially when the weather is cold. I usually run warm water over the capped tube or hold it in my hand a couple of minutes, and it's much much easier to access the product. I use my fingertips to scoop the product off the tip & spread it on my lips.

Keep in a warm area, or gently run a blow dryer over the tube to soften the contents. Works like a dream then, and less chance of splitting the metal tube!

For sure!!! My boyfriend and I use this mask before going to bed because we both have dry lips. Works wonderfully! Although, I really do not think he'd wear it during the day because it is glossy.

Yes but a tad glossy for a guy- I'd say just don't put a lot on. A little goes a long way.

Yes! Men can use any makeup product. If you're looking for something that isn't very noticeable the clear one is perfect.

Yes. Men can use this! Some of the choices have a hint of color, so go for a non color one if that bothers you.
It is a MASK though, so if you wear it at night what does it matter. Whatever color there is at first does wear off ! I chose the darkest color from the sample that I received to try and at first it looked like lipgloss, but about 20 minutes later I can still feel the product on, but my lips are back to their regular color. Hope that helps.

Men could definitely use this. I actually have a friend who was recently telling me about how she's kind of turned on a lot of her other friends to this product. It's super hydrating. It does add a bit of shine, so if you want to avoid that, you may want to find something else.
