For those of you who follow Swatch And Learn, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of the Jack Black lip balms not only because they have SPF 25, but mainly because they work miracles.
Even if your lips are incredibly chapped and sore, the Jack Black lip balms heal them and make them feel supple and healthy again.
I’ve previously reviewed the Jack Black Natural Mint Intense Therapy Lip Balm as well as went into great detail about how well it works.
For this post, instead of rehashing it all again in terms of efficacy (they work exactly the same), packaging, and animal-friendliness, I’m just going to tell you about the scent of the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm Lemon & Chamomile SPF 25!

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm Lemon & Chamomile Ingredients
Edit: Trevor, one of my readers, sent me a photo of the ingredients listed on the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm (Lemon & Chamomile) that he recently bought. Looks like they reformulated the ingredients!
If you’re trying to avoid parabens, you should double-check the formula to see if you get the one I did or the one Trevor did.

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm Lemon & Chamomile Review
I was hesitant to try this at first because even though I really love the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balms, I wasn’t sure if I would love the lemon-scented one.
There’s a fine line when it comes to lemon fragrances. Sometimes they smell of too much citrus, which yields a fragrance that’s reminiscent of housecleaning products. (Yeah, it’s not exactly something that you’d want to smell right on your lips.)
But I think that Jack Black did it right. This lemon comes across sweet like a meringue dessert. And the chamomile blends in nicely to make the overall lemon scent very comforting.
Although I use the Lemon & Chamomile Lip Balm by Jack Black any time of day, I especially love using it right before going to bed because I find the scent relaxing.
This doesn’t have any minty tingling at all, so for those of you who aren’t fond of that feeling on your lips, this is a great alternative.
Moisturizing Efficacy, Packaging, Etc.
To read more about how well this lip balm hydrates, what I think of the packaging, etc., please refer to my other post on the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm Natural Mint since my thoughts on that are exactly the same as for this one.
Final Verdict: 10/10
I can’t stop recommending the Jack Black lip balms to everyone I know. At first you might think – spending over $7 on a lip balm is pricey, but when you take into consideration that it works the second you apply it, it comes in so many different scents, a little bit goes a long way, it has SPF 25, and the tube is hygienic and easy-to-use, I think it’s totally worth it, especially since winter’s only going to make our lips drier as the months go on.
I’ve only tried this and the mint one. My current favourite is this lemon one. (I’ll be trying out grapefruit and the 2 limited-edition ones: Mango & mandarin and Shea Butter & Vitamin E. I may review them at a later date.)
Have you tried other Jack Black lip balm flavours? Which is/are your favourite(s)?
