the only make up that i use is lip balms and i have tried a lot of it! i have really dry lips and i have this bad habit of peeling the skin on my lips. it's painful and leaves my lips really raw, most of the time it even bleeds. i've been hunting for a perfect lip balm and voila! thank god sampleroom featured this! for the past few weeks, ever since i used this lip balm, my lips no longer peels anymore! it has this really minty feeling when applied on the lips. it doesn't feel waxy and heavy on the lips plus the spf 15 is an added bonus. it kept my lips moisturized and healthy looking. i also noticed how my lip color is gradually turning pinkish. the only thing that i didn't like about this product is that this doesn't have a tint. i will definitely buy this in its full size. i hope i can buy this personally and not online.

the product smells nice, it doesn't have an overpowering perfume scent. the color of the product also makes me feel it is very safe to use it as much as i want to. but i found out later that i don't have apply much, i only need a small amount as it glides on smoothly on my lips and my lips felt smooth all day. definitely a must have for everyday use.

I love the cool, minty, and non-greasy feel of this lip balm. Upon application, it may not make your lips look shiny but it can make it look more hydrated. It also has SPF 15! We need to protect the skin of the lips also from UV. I have used this before applying lipstick in the morning and before sleeping. So far, I’ve felt some improvement in my dry lips. It doesn’t seem so chapped like before.

I have skin asthma and it affected my lips, for a couple of months I can't use any cosmetic products and my lips look like they have been windburned and they hurt. I LOVE this product! in just one day I saw visible results, the smell is okay and the texture is smooth. When you put it, you will feel a very cooling sensation which helps your lips relax after a tiring day full of make up (well for most of the women). I will definitely recommend this product I absolutely love it!

I love the smell of it as if you're chewing on mentos everytime you use it. It feels light and soft on the lips. I just hope they are giving out samples in a tube instead of a tub as application in a tube is faster and more convenient. Although you'll feel the soft supple effect in an instant it wears off in a few hours thus the need to reapply.

Minty feel on my lips is evident when I applied it and i am not used to lip balms like that. But it's good to know that it has added spf 15 which other lip balms don't have. In terms of its moisturizing capability it has failed to impress me, my lips are dry especially the past few months, this lip balm helped but did not heal my dry lips

I have used Venus & Mars Lip Detox Lip Balm 2 years ago. I loved how it moisturized my dry lips. After finishing up that tube I never repurchased. I can't remember why I did not repurchase. Maybe, it was because it has to be ordered online. I have used a lot of lip balms for the past 2 years and none can compare with how my lips loved V&M lip balm. My lips have been extra dry lately because I'm taking up isotretinoin and this lipbalm gave me the moisturization that I'm looking for. It's so light on the lips and it doesn't impart an awkward glossy shine like the petroleum-based lip balms would give. The minty feel gives an extra relief to my lips, too. Downside, it wears off after a few hours but I really don't mind reapplying it from time to time. I would definitely repurchase this. :)

In this cold weather, the balm did not really moisturize much compared to petroleum jelly. The scent is overpowering and the the packaging can be improved to get the product easier.

The Lip Detox balm deserves some love because of the minty scent and sensation it gives but I don't find it moisturizing enough for my lips. I do appreciate that this is free from harmful chemicals and has a bonus of SPF15. I might purchase a tube when I run out of lip balms.

Upon receiving my sample of the V&M Smooch Lip Detox, I automatically replaced my regular lip balm with it so I could test it out. What I like is that it doesn't have a tint to it, so I can wear it under my lipstick without worrying about it affecting the color of my lipstick. Next is the fact that it has SPF15. Most of my activities involve me being outdoors so I'm glad this lip balm has SPF15 to protect the sensitive skin on my lips from the fierce rays of the sun. I also like the minty scent, it doesn't bother me at all... The only gripe I have with this product is the strong mint flavor is has, and on application it can get a bit too "minty" on the lips and I find that if I apply too much it will start to actually hurt and I can feel a burning sensation on my lips. So taking that into mind, I'm on the fence about repurchasing this when my sample runs out.

I love its mint flavor mainly because of the cool affect it gives to my lips. It also moisturizes my dry lips but its absorption is rather slow. I'm actually thinking of changing my essential lip balm to this.

I've been using different lip gloss and lip balm becuase I experience dry and chap lips. Becuase of the cold weather, I always experieced chapped lips, so after several days of using it, my lips no longer cracked and peel. I will surely continue to use Venus and Mars Smooch Lip Detox Lip Butter Balm with SPF 15.

I love the minty/cool feel of this product on my lips. Whenever I use it at night before going to bed I always wake up in the morning with soft lips and when I use it in the morning under my matte red lipstick, it gives my lips the moisture that it needs as matte lipstick tends to dry out my lips. It also tastes nice when applied on the lips alone or doesn't have any bad taste effect when lipstick are put over it (because some balms do taste bad once mix with lipstick based on my experience). Overall, I would definitely buy this!

I'm a huge fan of lip balms. I use lip balms whenever I go out during weekends. I only use lipstick at work.

Let's start with application. I tried to use my finger to apply the lip balm but the wax is a bit tough and the packaging tiny so I had to use a lip brush.

Upon application, the mint would kick in and would increase for like a minute or two after you've put on the balm. I have no objection on the mint effect but the smell does remind me of the stuff my grandmother used to put on me whenever I'm not feeling well. I find the smell a bit odd for a lip balm. Maybe a fruity scent would be better option.

As for the moisturizing effect, I think I need something stronger. My lips only felt soft and moisturized for like 15-30 minutes. After that, it's like I didn't put any lip balm at all and had to retouch.

Overall, I'm not a fan of Venus & Mars Smooch Lip Detox Lip Butter Balm. A different scent, a stronger moisturizing formulation and a softer wax consistency will win me over.

been using this product for a few days now, I really like the scent, it glides on my lips smoothly and it really made my lips moisturized and the cool and minty feeling it gives off is great. the only downside to this sample is that it is in a container, they would've put it in a retractable container instead.

This lip balm has a strong menthol flavor w/ a tingling sensation which eventually subsides after a few minutes. It's very moisturizing but last only 3-4 hours on me. After that I need to re-apply else it would go back to my normally dry chapped lips. Plus points of the lip balm for me is it's SPF 15 and it's not sticky nor greasy unlike other lip balms. It also doesn't have a yucky taste. As for repurchasing, I'd like to test a few more lip balms first before settling on this one.

I have extremely dry lips and I've only encountered a few lip balms that does the job of moisturizing it and keeping it from being chapped. Sad to say that Venus & Mars Smooch Lip Detox Lip Butter Balm with SPF 15 isn't one of those balms. However on days when I'm not experiencing much chapping, this lip balm works for me so I can say that this may suit people with lips that aren't as dry as mine. The minty feel is a nice treat and how I wish this is easily available in department and groceries stores. I'd easily grab this one if my favorites are out of stock.

Lately I've been experiencing problem with my lips that i decided to try this product - v&m's smooch lip detox lip butter balm. My lips got dry due to a lipstick that i used. So when the product arrived, I quickly tried it on. The scent is menthol and when i put it on my lips it has a menthol effect which lasted for about 25-30 minutes. I've tried multiple products that offer the same result but this particular product (v&m smooch lip detox lip butter balm) made my lips smooth and even if i don't put it on, the dryness does not come back. I will definitely buy this product.
