This is a product I gave into because of all the hype surrounding it. I first heard of this product on Temptalia, Christine loves it and mentions it over and over. I figured I would give it a try despite the fact that under normal circumstances I would never spend 8$ on a lip-balm. But then again, I have about a dozen cheaper ones that I barely touch because they don't quite cut it for me.
This is a decent lip-balm. I didn't wow me, but I found myself reaching for it through all of winter. It has a thick, Vaseline like consistency and a nice slip, yet it doesn't feel slimy on the lips and doesn't just sit on the surface: it actually helps moisturize and repair chapped lips while providing protection from the elements. I like to use this product in it's own, applied during the day as well as a treatment, during the night after a lip scrub.
Overall, the performance was decent. I got both flavours available at my Sephora (Lemon and Mint) and they both quickly became staples in my day to day beauty routine.
Overall, the product is not amazing enough to justify me eating up all that junk. I try to keep my skincare as clean as possible, and when I do compromise it's because I found a product that is really outstanding. Unfortunately, this was not the case with Jack Black's Lip Balm. I will try an use it up, I like the fact that it has an SPF, which is great for summer, but I am not at ease with it and most definitely will not repurchase.
As an alternative I recommend Green Beaver Apres-Ski Boreal Lip Balm or my absolute favourite Korres Lip Butters, which are simply amazing.
