My son (age 4) compulsively picks his lips. The only success I've found to combat this bad habit is this Chapstick. Any other kind he just wiped off, but the consistency of this Chapstick is perfect -- it feels light on the lips and sinks in quickly. With his lips hydrated, it's harder for him to pick. This has been a lifesaver and is allowing him to (slowly) break this life long habit. I will be stocking up again before the cold weather winter hits!!
