Rated 1 out of 5 by tmoo Why the change in formula?
I loved the old Honey chapstick, but they changed the formula in 2016 to have a really strong sweet smell. I'm so disappointed and I don't know where to find the old kind. It was my favorite chapstick. :(

I'm so disappointed in the change from your 'honey' flavor to the new flavored honey. Everytime I pull out the new flavored honey from my purse I'm reminded how very disappointed I am. It's time to trash it. I did recently find one of my old unused honey flavors and it really is completely different. The old honey flavor has no sweetness in it at all and, for someone that's off sugar, it's very pleasant. It also keeps my lips moisturized for a nice long time. When it runs out it will be time for me to find something new. I actually came online to see if I could find any of the old honey flavors anywhere but after seeing all these other disappointed people here, I'm not even going to try. I'm sure it's all been taken. It's got to be so sad to lose so many customers.

The "New Honey Flavor" lip balm is aweful! I cannot stand the smell and cannot use it on my lips. Because it is something I cannot return, I will have to throw it away. I LOVED the old honey flavored lip balm! Please change back!

I too, sadly must agree with the other reviewers.
I have used the Honey lip balm FOREVER, and mistakenly bought the 'new flavor' edition recently. The packaging does say 'new honey flavor' in small print, but otherwise it looks the same and after years of buying the same thing, I didn't notice it.
Anyhow, after the first use, I could not figure out what was wrong with it. The smell and taste are so strong and perfumey, and I found myself reapplying over and over to keep my lips moist. I actually think the new one dries my lips out! Finally realized they had made a change to the product, so it went into the trash.
Hope enough long time users will complain so they bring back the old stuff.
