I picked up this lip treatment because it sounded fairly unique and because I have found that my lips have been peeling and flaking more than normal this winter (damn you, polar vortex!) I normally slather on a layer of either Carmex, Dior Baume de Rose, or a Nivea balm right before I go to bed, but I wanted to take a step up in my regime and the Agave Lip Mask seems to fit the bill perfectly.
The lip mask comes in a metal tube and is sealed upon arrival (you have to use the lid to puncture the metal seal, which both keeps the product fresh and ensures it will be untouched until you open it). The product is initially very thick, so much so that it is a bit difficult to get out of the tube. The advantage of that is that it is difficult to waste product--a very good thing when a (small) tube of this stuff is $26. The thickness begins to dissipate as the products warms on your lips, making it easier to apply. It remains thicker than the average chapstick, but it is not sticky in the slightest. It also gives a sheen to the lips.

All in all, this is a lovely product and it has definitely kept my lips moisturized and hydrated. But is it worth $26? If you are a Bite Beauty addict like me and you have some spare change laying around, pick up this product and I doubt you will be disappointed. But it's not absolutely life changing and you can probably achieve the same results with a good lip scrub and some Carmex.
