The precious Camellia was first discovered, thousands of years ago, by Japan's Oshima Island farm girls who applied the flower's extract to their skin and hair. The Ama (Japanese female free divers) evolved this ancient beauty secret, coating their bodies with Camellia Oil to protect their skin during frigid ocean dives. Centuries later, geisha began applying nutrient-rich Camellia Oil after bathing, a luxurious addition to their daily beauty ritual.

  • At last, a product that delivers

    I can't begin to tell you how many lip balms I've bought to remedy my chapped lips. This really is an amazing product. Please don't ever stop making it!! XOXO
  • Won my lip balm test

    I really like this product. Great tasting, not too goopy. I tested against two other high end products and this was my favorite. Generally use it at night. I wake up with soft, smooth lips. Will reorder
  • Love this product

    I tried this product today and already know that I'm gonna love it. Its moisturizing and not slippery like most lip balms are. Thumbs up to Tatcha's products.
  • Worth the money

    My first impression was not impressed with the container it came in because the lid was unscrewed. Aside from the packaging complaint, This formula is very unique, it is purely hydrating to my chronically chapped lips. It does not leave behind the slippery smothering feeling that most other products do. A little goes a long way, goes on thin with long lasting hydration perfect for under lipstick or over lip stains.

    Love this lip balm leaves my lips so hydrated & soft it's a must have in my beauty routine.
  • This is the best lip balm ever!!

    just a little bit and it works great!! also love the little hit of shine from the gold leaf.
  • Dry Lips No More!

    I have acne breakouts and my dermatologist recommended that I try out Accutane to keep it at bay. The medication is EXTREMELY drying and I tried every lip balm under the sun to try and fight off the side effects, but nothing worked. I tried this out after being introduced to Tatcha in Hong Kong and it has worked BEAUTIFULLY. It's such a life saver, I'm so grateful to have Tatcha in my life :)
  • Very nice

    I use this all the time . It stays on your lips foe a while!

    this lip balm is so amazing it works really fast and just melts on your lips and makes them really soft. it's also really important to me the way something looks and just the whole design of the container is so fancy and pretty I love it. it looked so nice when I first got it I didn't want to use it because I didn't want to ruin it haha.
  • Luxurious

    I have been using this lip balm for 2 days now and oh my! it is so luxurious going on and stays on. I love that it is clear and very rich so you don't need a lot. I am really loving this as a special treat for my lips as winter approaches.
  • Absolutely Wonderful Balm

    This lip balm is amazing. I was so excited to receive it after all the rave reviews, and its definitely worth it! It keeps my lips moisturized for a good amount of time, and even when I don't add the extra shimmer of the gold, it gives my lips a pretty flush. Beautiful product!
  • Fantastic for all occasions

    I love using this because all other lip balms leave the corners of my lips red and sticky. This is colorless, but reacts with your lip color to bring out your natural shade, which is really flattering.
  • Seriously Mind-blowing!

    I'm so blown away by this ridiculously fantastic lip balm, it's so luxurious and gorgeous and it moisturizes my lips like no other. The gold flakes are so pretty and they easily dissolved into my lips, leaving a sexy glow. Thank you Tatcha for yet another wonderful product!
  • Chapped lips no more!

    This lip balm is amazing! Not only is it super nourishing and rich but it leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturized instead of greasy. Also, I find that when I crush the gold flake into the balm when applying, it truly does dissolve on my lips adding a great glow.

    Added bonus, a little goes a long way, just like all the other Tatcha products.
  • Simply stunning!

    I love everything about this new lip balm! From the gold leaf to the nourishment my lips receive, this product is so perfect and SO Tatcha! The gold dissolves on my lips without a trace and leave my lips soft and moisturized. This is unlike any other lip balm and is a must have!
