- "I've been using this for as long as I can remember. While the packaging isn't ideal (I use it primarily at home), it works and is great for chapped lips. There's also a minty sensation when applied that some people may not like, but I enjoy. I also like that there's SPF in it. " in 1542 reviews
- "I always have one of these in my purse. It's small, moisturizing, and has SPF in it. It's also affordable and works on chapped lips." in 255 reviews
i am no longer a fan of blistex solely because of the ingredients! chapstick and blistex both contain waxes or oils that do help provide immediate relief for chapped lips BUT they contain ingredients hat actually dry out your skin causing you to reapply and buy more products. while this specific product does have beeswax as the first ingredient which helps give a relieving coat on your lips, the second most used ingredient is camphor. camphor dries out your lips and causes them to crack even more. it also looks like there is a form of salicyclic acid in the ingredient list that also dries out skin! it’s specifically used for acne treatments bec it DRIES OUT excess oil that causes breakout which means it dries out the natural oils in your lips. there are also different forms of alcohol in the ingredient list and this dries out skin. in addition, dimethicone is said to have the purpose of lip protection but in most cosmetics it’s purpose is to spread products. you find it in foundations, body washes , face cleanser, lotions etc. so i’m not sure if that’s an exaggerated truth on th ingredients.
SO I DO NOT RECOMMEND BLISTEX.
*i uploaded and ingredient list so you can see it yourself and trust i’m not making things up*
This lip balm is also medicated so it works really well to relieve chapped, bleeding, and inflamed lips. I can feel the relieve after the first application and it relieves the dryness in a day. It does have the medicated scent to it, but that's expected from a medicated product.
