I love the eucalyptus scent, but when I opened it to use the product, it was total liquid! I can't even squeeze it out without it running everywhere. I wonder if the #1 lip balm is the same? Or if I purchased a bad one.

Amazing product. Especially for anyone who uses Chapstick/Lip Balm daily instead of lipstick. Healed my dry and cracked lips quickly. Love it so much it's on auto renewal!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Teeny Love the feel and the smell
This is my favorite lip balm and I had to write a review when I read that others did not like the smell. It smells like eucalyptus and a bit of mint. Love it!

I don't normally write reviews of products but felt compelled to do so. When I initially got the product I really liked it. It does have a pretty strong Eucalyptus-y smell but I really liked it, it was sort of a nice pick me up. It absorbed well and was a nice companion to the other Kiehls lip products. My mistake came when I left it in my bag, in the car overnight. I don't think it was even particularly hot or anything but the product turned to basically a liquid. This happens with similar lip products but usually when the ingredients cool, it becomes more or less a solid again. Alas, this one did not and now it's forever a liquid that drips out of the tube. Though perhaps the blame can be placed on me, one would think that a product designed for traveling (different environments/locations, on the plane, airports) would be able to stand up to the heat. I'll take care not to leave it or similar products in the car next time, but for me, this one disappoints.

This stuff works just OK. My big complaint about the product is the smell. It smells HORRIBLE. I cannot get past the smell. I will not be reordering this again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PatriciaWL Love This Product
First found this product on a work trip to Amsterdam and thought I would try it out. It was amazing and really helped to keep my lips in great shape throughout all of my travels. As it began to run out I searched high and low for this product. Couldn't find it at Nordstrom's and it wasn't available online. Luckily, I found some recently at JFK and bought 3, thinking I wasn't sure when I would be able to find it again. I am thrilled to see that it is now available online! A little goes a long way and it truly helps to protect your lips. I highly recommend this product. I am hooked!
Rated 5 out of 5 by chemist So glad it's available online!!!!
I purchased a tube at the Portland, OR airport (PDX) late summer 2013. I lost it a couple months later on public transit and I couldn't find it in the brick-n-mortar store or online in the US. Luckily, my SNL purchased another one for me at Thanksgiving and brought it down to our family dinner. So, it's a relief (pun) to see it online for easy purchase!! I have yet to check with the local store...
I don't need to use much to get the restorative effect. Once my lips are 'restored' with regular use, they stay moisturized through the night or for most of the day until I eat or drink. The fresh scent is nice to put on and I do not find it intrusive to my other facial products' scents. I feel that it gets absorbed into my lips quickly and helps with calming flaky/dried lips.
I'm nearing the end of my tube and with all tube products, it's difficult to get it all out or it squirts out uncontrollably (it's lighter and more liquid than vaseline or carmex in a tube at room temp). I'll probably have to cut into it to clear it out but it'll be worth it! The cost is fine for what it is and does - better than buying a bunch of cheaper stuff that doesn't work as well.
Highly recommended!! But please don't buy them all... ;-)
