Very good balm to soothe chapped lips or even cold sores. I wouldn't say I use it on the daily but it's definitely good for more medicinal purposes.

Best chopstick ever! After one use you can already feel the improvement. Definitely my ride or die! Can't leave my house with having one in my purse.

This is probably the best product for heavy duty chapped lips. It's easy to use but it can sting a bit for a second if you're really, really chapped.

Keeps my lips well moisturized. No more painful cracked lips. Lasts me around 4 or 5 hours during the day and all night long. Definitely helps

This stuff is addicting!! I felt the need to apply it constantly throughout the day just to keep moisturized. I don't like how messy the product is.

I like this balm because it really helps my lips to heal and to moisturize it. I use it in very severe chapped lips and works like a charm every time
