The It's Skin Macaron Lip Balm retail for $10US and $13CAN on Sephora but I've bought these in bulk for about $6US each off of eBay.

Product: 
The balm is a thin/lightweight formula that really feels like nothing of the lip but have enough of s film to seal in your natural lip moisture. Now I found these are not as hydrating as a lip mask but do the job of a traditional lip balm of keep you lip supple.

Now these are Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter based so that explain the natural thinness of the formula. The selling feature of these is that they are vitamin rich to promote healing.

These do have a scent but with most Asian based products the scents are fairly natural. The Green Apple smells like apples (but not Gran Smiths), the Strawberry smells like strawberry, and the Grape smells like grape juice. The Pineapple smell very mild and slightly citrus, and the Chocolate smells like cocoa powder.


Packaging: 
Definitely a selling feature! These are macaron shaped jars that as the size of a standard large Macaron. The product is in a pot where the white ''filling' is and the cookie matches the colour of the scent and dyed colour.

The new box art has a colour bar that  is unique to the five scents compared the old white type box.

Verdict
These are good but not great. They do the job though of keep you list hydrated with a thin/light film compared to most lip balms but I don't see/feel any deep hydration of a lip mask either in a weeks use. The long term benefit of the vitamins however, is really subject to your skin type as well.
