I bought a package of 8, because I use these frequently (I keep them all over the house, in every hand bag I own, I even have one on my key ring), but they can be bought individually. These products help keep your lips nice and soft, while adding a touch of color and shine. Perfect for preventing dry, chapped lips, without the mess and hassle of lipstick. These also smell wonderful! The package of 8 I bought this time is just the basic "flavors" (vanilla, tropical punch, strawberry, cotton candy, etc.), but they come in a vast assortment of colors, flavors, and consistencies (balms, gels, liquids, glosses, glitters, etc.). Bonne Bell does not test on animals and, other than cetyl acetate and fragrance, the ingredients are great. They do have oils in them, but this is a product for your lips, there should be some oils in them. The product adheres to your lips; unless you are eating, drinking, or kissing a lot, it stays put.
