Chapstick Review

I received this product in the mail for free from Smiley360 to review and I'm pretty disappointed. I find the day side to have an unpleasant taste and smell - slightly vanilla and medicinal. It is hard and doesn't apply well to your lips. The formula also caused a burning sensation on my lips which I've never experienced with any other lip balm containing sunscreen. The night side however I had mixed feelings about. It has a great tropical smell and applied smoothly, however I found it to be greasy but not unappealingly so. I'm giving this product 3 out of 5 stars because I only liked 1/2 the product. I will definitely try the Moisture and Renew since I am a huge fan of ChapStick.
