I received this product as a Christmas gift and the first time I used it I was a bit iffy about it because the ingredient list looked a little shady but it turned out just as good as other lip balms by C.O. Bigelow that I have used in the past. Keep reading to know more about this product.

My Take on C.O. Bigelow VanillaMint Supreme 2X Lip Shine:
I had never heard of this brand before; even though I visit Bath and Body (BnB) Works outlet so often (that’s the retail store which carries this brand), I never bothered to check anything else except lotions and shower gel, hence I am glad that my friend decided to gift this product to me because now I have a new brand in my collection and a reason to check out other products available in BnB Works store as well.
Packaging: It has a long tube packaging, nearly my palm size, with a slant tip nozzle which can be used as an applicator and a twist-up cap to protect it. The nozzle has a tiny hole to dispense product when the tube is squeezed and generous amount of lip cream comes out which can be slathered on lips.
Texture: It is very thick but not gooey or sticky and spreads easily; it is not as thick as petroleum jelly and has a clearer shine. It does not form a thick layer on lips but just a thin film with a cream finish.
Fragrance: The first time I used Lemon Lip Cream it had a very unpleasant smell, like a stale mineral oil with undertones of lemon fragrance; hence I was a bit skeptic about the other products from this brand as well but this product has a very cooling mint fragrance and is not artificial because it does contain 100% natural mint extract.
Wear time: It wears more than most of the lip balms and salves I have used till now and tastes sweet – literally sweet. It prevented my lips from chapping or drying up and the most important feature it did not make my lips addicted to it the way EOS does. Once applied C.O. Bigelow lip cream keeps my lips moisturized for a long time and I don’t have to reapply it every few minutes.
Pros of C.O. Bigelow VanillaMint Supreme 2X Lip Shine:
• Travel friendly packaging – tube with slant tip applicator.
• Makes lips instantly soft and supple.
• It contains natural mint extract which is a natural lightener.
• Comes in several different flavors.
• Has sweet fragrance and even tastes sweet.
• Easy to spread and apply on lips.
• Gives a pretty cream finish.
• Decent wear time.
Cons of C.O. Bigelow VanillaMint Supreme 2X Lip Shine:
• Availability can be an issue for some.
IMBB Rating: 4.9/5
