I am generally a fan of Philosophy products- I love their bath washes and the skin care line but this lip shine is a disaster. I've received numerous tubes as gifts as many of their gift sets pair a lip shine with a body wash. Because of the price and the good intentions of the gift givers I've given this product multiple tries but each time I've come to the same conclusion- this stuff is awful. It leaves my lips feeling like a goopy, sticky mess. Not only that but it seems to just sit on the top of my lips before inevitably rubbing off on clothing or being swabbed off, it never actually sinks in and does any moisturizing. I loved the gingerbread scent of this tube enough to get creative and try multiple tactics to cope with the mess (applying and blotting, swabbing, dotting on just a tiny amount) but that quickly came to an end when my husband informed me that my mouth smelled and tasted like vomit. I'm afraid this is one of Philosophy's few lemons.
