Best cheap lip balm period. I would say it even trumps the expensive brands as well. Always keeps lips hydrated and great topcoat for lipsticks.

I like that I can use a generous amount of product when I apply this lip balm, however I prefer the a twist up version for mess-free application.

My absolute favorite product for winter. I tend to have very dry lips but this product really reduces the dryness and it has a very unique smell

Carmex has been around forever and I know of a lot of people who use them. However they do need to be reapplied frequently. And they melt easily.

This is what my mom used for me my whole life, now I find if I use it to much it actually chaps my lips more but if I use it sparingly it is ok.
