    Remarkable packaging, unremarkable product

    I bought this because I really need a good lip exfoliator. I am one of those people addicted to lip balms in the worst way: gotta have some at all times. But I still wind up with flaky lips. So I ordered this online, not even knowing about the packaging, just knowing that I like Tarte and $12 didn't seem TOO pricey if it came with a good exfoliator and a rich balm. The packaging blew me away...read more. I wish all lipsticks came like this. A little mirror? Wonderful! But totally unnecessary for this particular product, wouldn't you say? It's a colorless lip treatment you just rub on, why do you need a mirror? You don't. As for the product itself, I wasn't too impressed. I like the rough side OK, because it's pretty easy to just rub on, but the balm side is bo-ring and not very effective. You don't feel it. My stick is worn down on one side (can you guess which?) I wouldn't buy this again, and now I think $12 is far too much. And it's the packaging you are probably really paying for, which, while clever and awesome, is useless here. Sell the product for $8, improve the balm, and lose the fancy mirror stuff, and it'd be something I'd buy again and again. Meanwhile, if everyone used this fantastic mirror packaging on all lipsticks and glosses I would be ecstatic! — 4 years, 1 month ago

    I've used better.

    This product looked so cool in the store, and for the price ($11) I thought i would give it a try. However, I don't like the fact that you really need to rub the exfoliater for it to work. The stick ends up breaking and making it very hard to use properly. I have seen similar products that have this combination blended so you can use it as a lipstick, ( with the exfoliator in the middle of the stick). I'm gonna keep shopping around i guess.... — 5 years, 7 months ago

    a good deal

    I actually thought this product was pretty well priced for how nice it is and all that it does, like I love the little mirror on the outside of the case. The packaging is pretty clever. The exfoliating side of the stick is pretty good but I mostly just end up licking the sugar off my lips. It's good tasting, though! And the other side is like a standard good balm. It's a nifty product overall. I like to include it as a funny extra in presents for my friends! — 5 years, 8 months ago

    Ingenious lip fix

    Tarte FRXtion is a very inexpensive product, but it is wonderful. It has a sugar srub exfoliant on one side of the "lipstick" and a lip smoother/conditioning balm on the other side. It also has a small mirror as part of the compact, for quick fix's away from home. This is one product that will remain in my arsenal forever!! Briana — 6 years, 3 months ago

    great fix!

    I liked this stuff. it's not a overall fix for lips that are falling apart, but a good prevenative measure. the sugar scrub side wears off faster than the other side though... — 6 years, 5 months ago

    Quick solution to icky flaky lips : )

    As the other reviewers said; this stuff does wonders for flaky lips...I like to use it once a day more to prevent my lips from getting to that point though! It has a great sugary maple syrup kind of flavor and the balm is incredibly soothing to raw lips (esp in winter!) The packaging itself is really nice with the mirror being a nice touch. Hey, if you're going to spend $ on something; it's nic...read moree that it LOOKS worth the $!! Lastly, this thing lasts forever-I've had the same one for almost 6 months with daily use! Go and buy this (if you can find it of course!) — 6 years, 5 months ago
