Its very attractive in appearance with great color combo of white (color of cap) and red (lip balm)!

Swatch: In the image below!
My Experience: I purchased this product for my dry and cracked lips. When I opened the screw cap of balm, I was surrounded by the smell of strawberries. The smell was very pleasing and nice. I took little amount of jelly on my finger tip and applied to my dry lips directly.
The texture of the jelly is thick and consistent. It glides very smoothly giving mild color to my lips. Mostly, it provides a sheen to the lips and the color isn’t that noticeable.
I usually apply lip balm 5-6 times in a day to keep my lips hydrated and moisturized. I also apply on top of lipsticks to avoid dryness of lips and to add gloss effect.
As I said before, the red tint of the balm rarely shows on. Till now it’s the best balm I have encountered. My dry chapped lips are healing very well and I’m quite happy to use it.
