Wet Your Whistle with True Blue Spa's Lip Balm

Dec 30, 2007
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Not greasy, long-lasting, goes on evenly, moisturizes

Cons:Unpleasant scent, no SPF, doesn't actually heal, pricey

The Bottom Line: This is a good product if you don't mind the vegetable-y scent and your lips are in ok condition. Great if you hate greasy lip balms.


I got a giftcard to Bath and Body Works for Christmas, and went ahead and used it at their big after-Christmas sale. On a whim at the last minute, I grabbed the True Blue Spa Wet Your Whistle Conditioning Lip Balm, since I always have chapped lips and consistently lose my lip balms. At the sale it was only $1, but it’s usually $4.

The Product

The tube is .15 oz or 4.2 g. It contains:
Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Lanolin, Flavor (Aroma), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Allantoin, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Panthenol (Provitamin B-5)

The Claim
True Blue Spa says that this lip balm hydrates, soothes, and conditions your lips with a generous does of Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Beeswax, and Aloe.

My Experience

The first thing I noticed with this lip balm was the smell. It’s subtle, but I find it unpleasant and too vegetable-y. It says in the ingredients that it has flavor, so you’d think it would at least smell nice, if not taste nice. There isn’t any taste as far as I can tell.

I absolutely love the texture. I hate greasy lip balms, and this isn’t at all greasy. It’s very thick so it doesn’t apply easily. However, it applies evenly, which is preferable to a lip balm that slathers on. Also, the fact that a lot doesn’t go on means that it will probably last longer than most lip balms.

My lips felt lovely at first, and I could feel it on my lips for quite a while. However, after a few days of consistent use, it doesn’t seem to be helping my lips heal at all – they’re just as chapped and painful as before. I think that this lip balm works better to keep your lips healthy than to actually help them heal.

One more thing - I'm disappointed that this lip balm doesn't have any SPF. My lips burn pretty easily when I'm outside a lot during the summer, so this product won't be quite as helpful during the summer.
