I have had this lip balm for quite a while now. I got it last year in my US drugstore haul. I can't remember how much it was, but it wasn't more that $5. Almay is an American brand I believe. So I got it from the walgreens website. It's also available on ebay. So it should not be too difficult to get your hands on.
This has quite a sweet scent to it, not quite Vanilla cake but something like that. I do like the scent but it's a Little synthetic so keep that in mind if you are picky about scents.
The balm looks just like a gloss once it's Applied, maybe not overly glossy but somewhat shiney. It feels like a mix between a gloss and a balm. It does hydrate my lips nicely and I like how nice it feels on my lips.
The balm is quite sheer, I was expecting a Little more color payoff but it's ok. Its a nice product to keep in you purse, and it can easily be Applied without a mirror.
I definately enjoy this liquid balm a lot, it took me some time to start using it, but now I'm kinda hooked. I definately want to get more colors. This is truly a tried and tested product, I'm almost out of this one and I have had no problems with the packaging or lettering wearing off or anything really.
So I do recommend this if you like a nice hydrating glossy balm with a sheer wash of color and a sweet scent. I'd probably compare it a bit to the NYX butter glosses, but more sheer. This also pairs nicely with lipstick.
Have any of you tried this?
